Traumatic Nasal Skin Injury and Recommendations for Aesthetic Recovery In the photo above, you can see the photo of the nose of the patient who accidentally hit the nose with hair (roofing material) and the photo after the aesthetic repair of the skin incision under local anesthesia. No nasal fracture was detected in the patient's X-ray and nasal examination. After the procedure, the patient's nose was bandaged with 3M brown micropore tape. In the other photo, healing at the wound site is seen after 3 weeks. The scar on the wound site has decreased considerably. . Our nose usually plays a protective role for our eyes in facial trauma The patient above stated that his nose skin was cut when a hair blown by the wind hit his face while walking on the road. In traumas to the face, various levels of trauma and injury to the nasal bone and nasal skin may occur. No injury to the nasal bone was detected in the examination and radiographs of this patient.

Triple-Layered Closure of an Oroantral Fistula There are many different techniques that have been defined for the closure of nasal septum perforations. Search result page on this website, which includes different surgical techniques and information articles that you can read about septal perforation repair, which I have published previously >> https://www.ent-istanbul.com/search?q=septum+perforation (To access all articles, click the More Posts link at the end of the page) The nasal septum is the structure that divides the nasal cavity into two vertically and consists of the mucosa that covers the bone and cartilage. This structure allows each nasal cavity to work separately from each other. When the nasal septum is damaged due to various reasons, the resulting hole is called nasal septum perforation, septal hole, perforated nose septum. In this case, the location of the hole (front or back), the size of the hole (large or small) affect the amount of symptoms that will occur in

Do Not Use Any Nasal Spray Freely Without Consulting Your Doctor!

Long-Term Nasal Decongestant Use and Rhinitis Medicamentosa (RM) In some cases, when your nose is very congested, you should not use nasal decongestant sprays for a long time, which you know will be very good for you and cause relaxation in the nasal air passage as soon as they are squeezed. Especially these sprays are suitable for regular use for only 3 and sometimes a maximum of 5 days. These sprays are easily available at pharmacies, and when you first use them, you might think "this is my medicine". Particularly in patients with turbinate hypertrophy or septal deviation, since the available air passage is already narrow, severe nasal congestion may occur in the case of a simple upper respiratory tract infection or mucosal inflammation due to allergic rhinitis. Unfortunately, these patients may start to use these sprays as the "fastest nasal medicine" as a medical treatment option. Nasal decongestant sprays reduce intranasal mucosal edema and increase air passage

Two Images of the Same Patient: Dry and Infected Nasal Mucosa on the Right (Due to Cocaine) and Healthy and Wet Mucosa on the Left Image Description: A 36-year-old male patient was admitted to our clinic with the complaints of epistaxis and nasal dryness from the right nostril.  The patient stated that he had been using cocaine through his right nostril for about 2 years.  It was understood that the patient could not breathe through his left nostril due to severe nasal septum deviation, which almost completely covers the left nasal cavity, and therefore he did not use cocaine from this side.  Nasal septum deviation may have had a positive secondary effect.  In the photograph above, there are images obtained during the endoscopic examination of the patient's right nasal cavity and left nasal cavity at the same time.  This is a photo where you can easily see the changes that cocaine has made in the nose.  It is seen that the mucosa in the right nasal cavity is dry, bleeding and crust

Swimming After Eardrum Repair Surgery

How Soon Can You Swim After A Tympanoplasty / Myringoplasty? The beautiful photo above was taken by me at sunset in Küçükçekmece Lake After eardrum closure operations, if water is leaked into the ear, risks such as infection in the surgical area, failure of the operation and re-emergence of the hole in the eardrum may occur.  For this reason, we usually advise our patients to protect the ear from water contact after eardrum operations and motivate our patients to take the necessary care. After the operation, it is recommended that the patients use various earplugs produced in accordance with the external ear canal, and various protective barriers with elastic bands that can be placed outside the head.  It is also recommended that our patients stay away from sports activities that may cause pressure increase.  It is the most accurate information that our surgeon who performed your surgery recommends to you.  Please do not participate in activities that may cause water contact to the ear

Oral Hypersensitivity Image 1 : Photo taken after hyperemia and burning sensation on the tip of the tongue that appears just after eating strawberries Image numbered 2 and 3 : Photo taken after the contact with strawberry was terminated, 1 scale of oral antihistaminic syrup was given and waiting for 1 day, the redness has almost completely disappeared Some foods can cause a local inflammatory allergic reaction when they come into contact with tissues in the mouth. I have attached photos of the tongue of a 5-year-old patient who developed a burning sensation and redness towards the tip of the tongue after eating strawberries. In the tongue photograph taken one day after the patient ingested a single dose of oral antihistamine syrup and the strawberry contact was terminated, it is seen that the redness has almost completely disappeared.  Food-induced hypersensitivity reactions are abnormal allergic reactions of the immune system that occur in response to exposure to normally harmless sub
