Hello Andri, thank you for your question to the HealthReplies.com Team
Neurectomy is a procedure that cuts a nerve. Especially for problems in the nose, which is cut is the vidianus nerve, which is the nerve that is responsible for managing the autonomic innervation in the lining of the nasal mucosa. These nerves play an important role in the various symptoms that appear in vasomotor rhinitis.
Vasomotor rhinitis is an inflammation of the nasal mucosa characterized by swelling and excess discharge from the glands that are in the nasal mucosa. In contrast to allergic rhinitis, the trigger for vasomotor rhinitis is a specific irritant. Symptoms resemble allergic rhinitis, namely runny and stuffy nose, but rarely cause an itching sensation in the nose and sneezing.
The diagnosis of vasomotor rhinitis is confirmed by an ENT specialist through a careful history interview, also supported by a careful ear-nose-throat examination. Treatment for vasomotor rhinitis:

In Indonesia alone, ENT specialist doctors have the competence to perform this procedure, it's just that it is rarely done considering neurectomy is indicated when drug therapy does not provide relief.
