Serious Complications of a Simple Nasal Surgical Procedures: Empty Nose

Turbinate Resection With Septum Perforation Resulting In Nasal Hyperventilation And Empty Nose Syndrome  I wanted to share with you a few patient examination photos that show the importance of the inferior turbinate. The patient, who had undergone septoplasty, radiofrequency and turbinate resection twice in another clinic, applied to our clinic with the following complaints: - sticky and solid discharge from the nasal passages - dry and crusty discharge in the nose - nose bleeding - not enough air taken from the nose - feeling of cold and dry air in your nose - dry nose, painful areas, thick viscous discharge, more on the right side - decreased sleep quality (turbinates may affect lying position and nasal cycle changes may also occur after turbinate procedures) Tomography and nasal examination sections of the patient who developed nasal septum perforation , nasal hyperventilation , and empty nose syndrome on the right after two separate nasal surgeries performed in a different clinic.
