Submucosal diathermy of the inferior turbinate (SMDIT) is a generally safe procedure to control inferior turbinate hypertrophy. We present a case of a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak at the craniocervical junction after SMDIT done in another institution. A 27-year-old man presented 3 weeks after undergoing SMDIT with signs and symptoms of meningitis and postnasal rhinorrhea. Nasal endoscopy and imaging revealed a nasopharyngeal CSF fistula at the craniocervical junction. Transnasal endoscopic repair and reconstruction was performed with no recurrence on repeat imaging and clinical follow up...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of nasal septal surgery on quality of life. METHODS: A total of 49 patients who underwent septoplasty and/or inferior turbinate radiofrequency operations for nasal septal deviation and inferior turbinate hypertrophy were prospectively enrolled in the study. All patients completed the adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder scale (ADHD scale) and Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI) before and after septoplasty. Acoustic rhinometric measurements were also recorded...

OBJECTIVES: A relatively neglected aspect of cleft lip nasal deformity is the effect of septal deviation and inferior turbinate hypertrophy (ITH) on the functional airway. In particular, ITH in the noncleft side can be especially problematic, because it reduces the healthy nasal area, creating bilateral nasal obstruction that might affect the growth of the maxillofacial skeleton. Although these anatomic and functional changes are documented, few recommendations have been developed regarding the proper approach to ITH...

PURPOSE: Consensus has not been reached regarding the optimal reduction procedure for inferior turbinate hypertrophy in allergic rhinitis and whether such procedures result in improvement in mucosal architecture. METHODS: Twenty-nine patients aged 18-45 years (mean 26.8 years), with allergic rhinitis and inferior turbinate hypertrophy not responsive to medical therapy who underwent endoscopic submucosal diathermy (ESMD) (14 patients) or endoscopic submucosal resection (ESMR) (15 patients) with intraoperative and 3-6 months postoperative inferior turbinate biopsies, were included in the study...

Subjective relief of nasal obstruction is not correlated with resistance improvement. Rhinomanometric analysis by itself is insufficient to assess inferior turbinoplasty outcomes. Inferior turbinoplasty is a reliable approach to improve persistent nasal obstruction in chronic nasal dysfunction linked to inferior turbinate hypertrophy. Microdebrider-assisted turbinoplasty seems to be more effective in mucosal volume reduction than radiofrequency turbinoplasty. The change in subjective improvement in nasal airflow after 3 months of follow-up does not appear to be related to the surgical technique of inferior turbinate reduction...

OBJECTIVES: Describe the patterns of obstruction in persistent pediatric OSA and their relationship with patient weight. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review. METHODS: All pediatric DISE procedures performed at a tertiary care hospital between October 2010 and October 2015 were reviewed. Patients had polysomnography after adenotonsillectomy that confirmed persistent obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Variables included age, gender, co-morbidities, and AHI...

Hypertrophy of the inferior nasal turbinate is one of the most common causes of nasal obstruction. The diode laser has proven to be as effective as other lasers for this indication. Our objective was to study various outcomes associated with the use of the diode laser, such as improvements in nasal obstruction and postoperative pain, reduction in intraoperative bleeding, and rapidity of healing. A nonrandomized, controlled trial was conducted in which outcomes were compared between diode laser turbinate reduction (LTR) and conventional partial inferior turbinectomy (PIT) in 60 patients, 30 who underwent LTR and 30 who underwent PIT...

BACKGROUND: Inferior turbinate hypertrophy could be a result of allergic rhinitis (AR) that leads to nasal congestion and nasal airway obstruction, which is the most bothersome complaint in patients with AR. However, evidence regarding whether patients with AR have a more hypertrophied inferior turbinate than do patients with non-AR is lacking. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to evaluate the degree of inferior turbinate hypertrophy according to the presence of AR using radiological measurements of the inferior turbinate...

Objective: Intranasal steroid sprays (INSS) are frequently prescribed for treating inferior turbinate hypertrophy (ITH). Complications due to the long-term application of INSS such as crusting, epistaxis, nasal mucosa dryness, and septal perforation may occur. Predicting patients who would benefit from INSS early might lower treatment costs and complication rates. We examined the predictive value of nasal decongestant response rates for the outcomes of INSS in ITH. Methods: Fifty patients with bilateral ITH were included in two groups: patients benefiting from INSS and those not benefiting...

INTRODUCTION: Nasal obstruction is a common symptom in childhood, related to rhinitis and pharyngeal tonsil hypertrophy. In the presence of nasal obstruction, nasal patency may be reduced, and nasal breathing is replaced by mouth breathing. Orofacial and otorhinolaryngologic changes are related to this breathing mode. Objective evaluation of upper airways may be obtained through nasal patency measurement. OBJECTIVE: To compare nasal patency and otorhinolaryngologic-orofacial features in children...

INTRODUCTION: Although the nose and lungs are separate organs, numerous studies have reported that the entire respiratory system can be considered as a single anatomical and functional unit. The upper and lower airways affect each other either directly or through reflex mechanisms. OBJECTIVE: In this study, we aimed to evaluate the effects of the radiofrequency ablation of persistent inferior turbinate hypertrophy on nasal and pulmonary function. METHODS: Twenty-seven patients with bilateral persistent inferior turbinate hypertrophy without septal deviation were included in this study...

We compared the effectiveness of local anaesthetic with Emla cream with that of an injection of lidocaine for radiofrequency reduction of the inferior turbinates. We studied 98 consecutive patients with hypertrophied inferior turbinates, 46 of whom were given Emla cream and 52 lidocaine injection. The procedure began five minutes after the injection of lidocaine and 10minutes after the Emla cream had been applied. Patients were asked to indicate on a visual analogue scale (VAS) the degree of perioperative pain, anxiety, sensation of choking, and discomfort on swallowing that they felt after the procedure...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of these two methods (Nasal corticosteroids (NCS) and radiofrequency (RF) application) on conchal contractility utilizing objective rhinologic measurement parameters. METHODS: 82 patients were presented with the complaint of nasal obstruction and diagnosed with inferior turbinate hypertrophy and were included in the study. Patients in Group 1 received NCS for 12weeks. Patients in Group 2 were administered RF to their inferior turbinates...

INTRODUCTION: All the functions of nasal cavities are performed through mucosa and contours of the turbinates. Hypertrophied inferior turbinate is one of the major and common causes of nasal obstruction. In these patients nasal obstruction is relieved by inferior turbinate reduction. Many procedures on turbinate reduction have been described earlier. AIM: To compare and evaluate the better method for inferior turbinate reduction among submucosal diathermy using monopolar cautery and bipolar cautery, complete turbinectomy, inj...

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) results from the recurrent collapse of the upper airway during sleep. Nasal abnormalities influence the stability of the pharynx. The aim of this study was to evaluate the volumetric and anatomical changes of the nasal cavity in patients with OSA. The Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation (NOSE) scale was used to grade nasal obstruction. Sleep-related breathing disorders were evaluated by polysomnography. The nasal airway volume was obtained from computed tomography scans through volumetric reconstruction of the nasal airway...

INTRODUCTION: Numerous surgical techniques for inferior turbinate hypertrophy (ITH) have been reported, each with advantages and disadvantages. Submucosal turbinoplasty with removal of the bony component of the inferior turbinate (IT) is an excellent procedure to expand the nasal cavity. However, this procedure requires a large incision to remove the inferior turbinate bone (ITB) and is associated with hemorrhage, crust formation, and adhesion. A smaller incision would avoid such complications...
