Minimally Invasive Office Procedures for Chronic Rhinitis


The Clarifix procedure, also referred to as “cyroablation of the posterior nasal nerves”, is a

brief, low risk procedure performed in the office or operating room to reduce symptoms of

chronic rhinitis that are refractory to common methods of medical management such as

medications or allergy treatment. This proven procedure can reduce vasomotor nasal

symptoms such as watery nasal drainage and congestion in about 80% of patients. The

procedure uses a cryotherapy wand to superficially freeze overactive autonomic nerve branches

in the back of the nasal cavity.
