surgery

Most people tend to forget that nose surgery is more than just a cosmetic procedure. Surgical intervention is necessary to restore the functions of the nose, to eliminate its structural defects.

Functional nasal surgery is a branch of medicine and a medical specialty that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of pathologies of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. It is an effective method of treating chronic diseases, injuries, consequences of developmental disorders.

Otolaryngologist consultation - when is an examination necessary

If you have a runny nose that lasts more than two weeks, you should definitely not postpone your appointment with your doctor. Even such a symptom that is familiar to us may indicate the presence of serious diseases of the nasal cavity or paranasal sinuses. An otolaryngologist will help you find the cause of the dysfunction and restore the activity of this important organ.

You should consult an otolaryngologist if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • nasal congestion;
  • prolonged runny nose;
  • atypical, purulent discharge;
  • recurring nosebleeds;
  • dry mouth;
  • face pain or headache.

At the reception, the otolaryngologist will carefully listen to complaints and take an anamnesis, taking into account all the symptoms, possible injuries, past illnesses, and so on. This will be followed by a clinical examination. During it, the doctor will examine the nose inside and out, taking into account all the patient's complaints. Also, an examination by an otolaryngologist (ENT doctor) may include endoscopy - the introduction of a special small device into the nose in order to examine all the details.

During the consultation, the otolaryngologist answers all questions that bother the patient and, based on the results of the examination, informs about the further course of treatment. Consultation with an otolaryngologist (ENT) and ENT diagnostics is a mandatory step that should precede any surgical intervention.

Types of operations

Septoplasty

Surgery to correct the shape of the nasal septum. Its curvature leads to impaired breathing, so surgical intervention is necessary.

Removal of the cyst of the paranasal sinuses (maxillary, frontal, wedge-shaped)

Cysts of the paranasal sinuses are a fairly common pathology, which can be eliminated exclusively by surgery.

Treatment of chronic sinusitis (including mucocele)

Sinusitis is an inflammatory disease of the maxillary (maxillary) sinuses. With this diagnosis, the patient has mucosal edema, difficulty breathing and purulent discharge.

Treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis (including polyposis)

This pathology manifests itself in the form of polyposis formations in the nasal cavity. The main method of its treatment is surgical removal.

Treatment of the pathology of the turbinates

One of the reasons for persistent (chronic) nasal congestion is the pathology of the turbinates. Such violations require complex treatment.

Functional surgery of the nose and paranasal sinuses is a method of surgical treatment of ENT diseases, which allows you to fully preserve or restore the functions of these organs (nasal breathing, mucus outflow), and normalize local immunity.

Endoscopic rhinosurgery is the most progressive direction in the surgical treatment of diseases of the nose and sinuses. For preoperative diagnostics and the operations themselves, an endoscope is used - a miniature optical system that allows you to visualize the operating field in detail and introduce high-tech microsurgical instruments into the nasal cavity. Advantages of endoscopic surgery of the nose and paranasal sinuses over traditional:

  • the volume of surgical intervention is strictly controlled, only pathological areas are removed, normal intranasal structures are not damaged;
  • there are no external punctures, cuts;
  • swelling decreases, the risk of nosebleeds and other postoperative complications is lower, rehabilitation is faster.
