The structure of nasal cavity after the surgery suggests that by performing nasal surgeries including bilateral endoscopic total ethmoidectomy, bilateral endoscopic middle meatal antrostomy with the removal of maxillary sinus tissue, bilateral submucous resection of the inferior turbinates, and bilateral outfracturing of the inferior turbinates, we can achieve the goals of correction of abnormal structure, enlargement of ventilation cavity, and symmetry of bilateral nasal cavity.
