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...

The septal body contains expansile tissue that may behave in a similar manner to the inferior turbinate. It is situated in the nasal valve region and, like the inferior turbinate, can cause changes in the nasal cross-sectional area and resistance to airflow. Septal body hypertrophy combined with inferior turbinate hypertrophy may result in changes to nasal cross-sectional area and resistance to airflow. Septal body hypertrophy is likely to accompany inferior turbinate hypertrophy. Septal body thickness demonstrated significant positive correlation with the widths of the anterior turbinate medial mucosa and middle turbinate lateral mucosa...

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...

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...

REVIEW
Brian W Downs
There is controversy regarding optimum treatment of the hypertrophied inferior turbinate. Patients undergoing rhinoplasty will likely need treatment of bony hypertrophy as well as possibly soft tissue hypertrophy. Although inferior turbinate hypertrophy is a heterogeneous entity, future studies should standardize outcome measures and compare treatment methods with rigorous clinical trials.
