    • Correlação entre a resistência nasal e diferentes parâmetros da rinometria acústica em crianças e adolescentes com e sem rinite alérgica 

      Wandalsen, Gustavo Falbo [UNIFESP]; Mendes, Aline Inês [UNIFESP]; Solé, Dirceu [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Otorrinolaringologia e Cirurgia Cervicofacial, 2012-12-01)
      Acoustic rhinometry and rhinomanometry are important tests used to assess nasal function. The degree to which the parameters of these tests are correlated is yet to be established. OBJECTIVE: This paper aimed to study the ...
