Powered instruments have been introduced into otorhinolaryngology practice over the last decade. These instruments were accepted immediately by many institutions, and continuing development has led to the current use of microdebriders in a variety of surgical procedures in otorhinolaryngology. In clinical rhinology, they were first used in endoscopic sinus surgery to facilitate working on deep planes, but have subsequently been adopted in various conditions. This article presents an evaluation of the use of microdebriders in common rhinological disorders.
