Background: Modified Young's procedure (MYP) was a popular procedure for primary atrophic rhinitis. The classical Young’s procedure was not tolerated well since its inception and a modification popularly known as the “Modified Young’s procedure” was introduced. The complete closure of the nostrils were not well tolerated as most of the patients disliked mouth breathing and also the nasal voice. Material and methods: We report a case series of MYP done in 17 cases of primary atrophic rhinitis under general anaesthesia. Bilateral procedures were done in all patients who tolerated it well. The polythene tube buttons were removed after 7 days. Results: Mean duration of follow up was 15.11 months, with good symptoms improvement.
