Nasal Polyps can easily removed with precision and less bleeding. The surgical technique using microdebrider is shown in this video
Advantages of microdebrider:
1. It cuts and removes tissue
2. Suction applied holds the tissue to the blade facilitating their cutting
3. Microdebrider is useful in performing polypectomy surgeries in the nose. It causes minimal trauma to normal turbinate tissue. Since it cuts on one side only, the opposite side is not traumatized. Since there is no raw area on the opposite side the incidence of post op synechiae formation is minimized.
