CT scan of the nose after total bilateral turbinectomy
A Turbinectomy is a procedure in which some or all of the turbinate bones attached to mucous membranes in the nasal passage are removed. It has been used to relieve nasal obstruction, but side-effects include removal of nerves that would report the passage of air. It may result in empty nose syndrome.
