Turbinates and Their Important Healt Related Jobs
Each nasal cavity contains 3 anatomical structures called "turbinates". These structures, which have outer parts as mucosa and inner parts as vascular structure rich tissue and bone, have different duties. These:
- By heating the air entering the nose
- Cleaning of air entering the nose
- Humidification of the air entering the nose
- Pressurization of the air entering the nose
- During sleep, the underlying turbinate grows in volume and the patient may need to change position in the sleep (nasal cycle)
- Increasing the percentage of oxygen absorption by adapting the air entering the nose to the lung end airways
- particulate rich air breathing
- use of decongestant spray for long-term and inappropriate dose in the nose
Symptoms of Turbinate Hypertrophy
In fact, the list can be extended. "Turbinate Hypertrophy" can cause a wide variety of symptoms, such as nasal congestion, dry mouth, reduced sleep quality, reduced daily performance. Depending on the nasal obstruction, the lungs are not suited to air expulsion, a reduction in the percentage of oxygen uptake occurs.
Treatment of Turbinate Hypertrophy
|Treatment of Turbinate Hypertrophy|
For surgical treatment options are including total or partial inferior turbinectomy (PIT), lateral outfracture of inferior turbinates, submucosal resection with microdebrider, laser-assisted turbinate reduction, plasma surgery, cryosurgery, infrared light, vidian neurectomy, chemical or electrical coagulation and radiofrequency volume turbinate reduction (RFVTR) (source: Radiofrequency volumetric inferior turbinate reduction: long-term clinical results).
Only Volume-Reducing Applications Are Recommended!
