  • U.S. firm has developed a probe, called Vivaer, that destroys bulky nasal tissue 
  • Heating up to 60c, it uses radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to shrink swollen skin
  • Nasal congestion is major cause of snoring as it forces people to mouth-breathe

Sticking a hot probe up the nose to clear blocked airways may end snoring for good in some people.

The probe — which heats up to 60c — about the temperature of hot water from a tap — uses radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to shrink swollen tissue causing the blockage.

Energy produced by radio waves generates heat; RFA is already used to destroy tumour cells in patients with liver, kidney or lung cancer.
