RESULTS: Mean score for symptoms severity before the procedure was 62.07 ± 6.34 and decreased with statistical significance to 20.42 ± 3.81 after the procedure. Similarly, scores for quality of life have improved from 40.26 ± 2.98 before the procedure to 85.06 ± 2.57 after the procedure, which again was statistically significant.
