Empty Nose Syndrome

Watch this video if you have a nose congestion, why your turbinate is very important!

Empty nose syndrome is characterized by exaggerated enlargement of the airways in the nose and the resulting nasal dryness, pain in the nose, air starvation and other symptoms that may occur after aggressive nose surgeries.

In the nose called "turbinate" inside the blood vein network, outside the airway epithelium and covered with mucus cover, the air taken to warm the air, refining, moisturizing, pressurizing protection and minimal traumatic operations is very important. The aggressive reduction or surgical removal of turbinates may cause the Empty Nose Syndrome (ENS).

I wanted to share this very detailed "Empty Nose Syndrome" video as a proof of the "respect for anatomy" and proof that no tissue is unnecessary.

In the video, when the turbinates are over-minimized or surgically removed, it is seen how the air flow becomes linear and fast, which is how the air from the nose gets into a single bundle, which is normally rotated and slowly into the nose.

In the video shared here, the importance of nasal physiology and the changes in airflow patterns due to accelerated intranasal airflow are summarized. Unfortunately, you can find videos on YouTube that are still published as "turbinectomy" and show the surgical resection of most of the turbinate tissue. Maybe there will be no turbinate that swells and clogs your nose again, but remember that you will have partially or more lost your organ that purifies, warms, humidifies and pressurizes the air taken from the product. Nasal physiology, the nasal cycle, the turbulent intranasal airflow, the natural movement of nasal secretions ... all depend on an excellent and well thought-out nasal anatomy.

Some patients say "don't let my turbinates swell again, I'm an allergic person, my nose gets blocked immediately". Remember here that due to allergic reactions, chien turbinates also block the movement of allergens to the lower respiratory tract, so you understand that you have an allergy. Asthma can occur when allergens reach your lungs, would you like to have your lungs surgically removed or partially removed as well?
