Major Causes of Nasal Congestion.
Growth of Nasal Flesh (Concha Hypertrophy):
Inside the nasal canals, the spongy tissues containing plenty of blood are called Concha. Every change in volume of the Concha regulates the amount of air passing through the nose and made it humid and warm. Methods such as radio-frequency and diathermy are used to reduce the enlarged turbinate. Another method is done by removal of turbinate. In this procedure scar tissue within the nose that has become connected or fused, is separated. Surgical removal of treatment-resistant and overgrown turbinate is called Concaplasty.
Growth Nasal Flesh (Adenoid Hypertrophy).
Adenoid hypertrophy is an obstructive condition related to an increased size of the adenoids. The condition can occur with or without an acute or chronic infection of the adenoids. These lymphoid tissues are actually responsible for defending the body. Overgrowth of lymphoid tissues in the nasopharynx, where the nose opens to the throat, is the most common cause of nasal obstruction in childhood. If the adenoids grow excessively, they cause sleep disturbances, various dental problems and facial pain or pressure. In such situations operation (adenoidectomy) is indispensable. Adenoidectomy is the surgical treatment option of choice for adenoid hypertrophy. This operation is applied alone or either with the removal of tonsils (tonsillectomy). Patients are fed with liquid foods for the first two days and soft foods for other following few days. After removal of growing tissue in the nasal passage, complaints such as sore throat, pain in the ear, and difficulty swallowing may be experienced. In addition to surgery method, procedures such as diathermy and radiofrequency can be applied as treatment.
Nasal septum deviation (Intransal bone curvature).
The nasal septum is the bone that separates the nasal cavity into the two nostrils. Normally, the septum lies centrally, and thus the nasal passages are symmetrical. The deviation can be congenital or as a result of later injury. The deviation can be congenital or as a result of later injury. This situation, can cause health complications such as a blocked nostril, difficulty breathing and can cause beauty issues. Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to correct a deviated septum and allowing patients for better airflow through their nose. A Septoplasty, takes anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes to complete, depending on the complexity of the condition. The patient is discharged 4-5 hours after the operation. Nasal pads are placed to stay for one day if needed. The operation provides lifetime results for patient.
