Radiofrequency (RF) surgery is a type of electrosurgery. We talk about a radiofrequency surgical intervention, if the frequency of the high-frequency generator is set between 3-5 MHz. During the procedure, tissues heat up to 50-90 °C as a result of high-frequency waves surrounding the electrode, causing thermal damage and consequent irreversible tissue damage. In the field of otorhinolaryngology, radiofrequency (RF) can be applied in nearly all areas. The most common areas include the treatment of rhynophima, the inferior turbinate, palatal tonsils, laryngeal and hypopharyngeal laesions and surgeries to treat snoring. Consequently, our clinical investigations encompassed the above areas.
