How Septoplasty Is Performed?

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Varanasi
How Septoplasty Is Performed?

The nasal septum divides the nose into two nostrils or airways. When this septum is defective in structure or position, it can cause several physical difficulties like breathing problems, sleep apnea, bleeding, sinusitis, etc. The surgery to correct the nasal septum is known as septoplasty. The surgery is very common and has a high rate of success.
 
Reason: When the bone and cartilage separating the two chambers is crooked and deformed, it prevents the air from flowing properly through either one of the nostrils. People suffering from this condition often breathe through their mouth and this leads to respiratory tract infections. So, the septum is fixed with the help of septoplasty.
 
Procedure

  1. First, your medical history is taken. A thorough physical examination is conducted and the nose is photographed from the inside and the outside. You may also be asked to avoid medication like ibuprofen, naproxen and aspirin for a few days since these can increase the bleeding after surgery.
  2. Septoplasty is performed under general or localized anesthesia and takes about 90 minutes. Incisions are made on the inside of the nose and the mucus membrane is lifted.
  3. Then, the pieces of cartilage that are affecting normal functioning are repositioned or removed.
  4. If the nasal bone is causing the septum to be wrongly aligned, then cuts are made on the bone and it is positioned correctly.
  5. Sometimes, cartilage grafts (called spreader grafts) are put in between the upper nose cartilage and the septum to widen the narrow nostril.
  6. After this, the mucus membrane is put back in place and stitched.

 
Post- surgical care: A nasal support is put inside the nose to help it heal and keep it straight. The support is removed after two days but there may be swelling and occasional nasal discharge for a few days. The tissues and cartilage become stable within 4 to 6 months. You are asked not to blow your nose or cough and sneeze too much as these might displace the nasal support. The head is to be kept at a higher level than the rest of the body while sleeping and physically demanding exercises are to be avoided in order to prevent nosebleeds.
 
Risks: Septoplasty is not performed if the patient had high level of blood sugar or high blood pressure. It is also delayed in case of any kind of infection in the nose, mouth or in the respiratory tract. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ENT specialist.

Hello kindly share the medications which you have been taking last 1 month. Irritations in throat could occur be due to acid reflux from stomach. Avoid spicy foods. Avoid lying down immediately after meals. Anti relic medicines will benefit. Take curds buttermilk. If still no improvement kindly get a flexible laryngoscopy for further evaluation. Take care.

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS

As u told u have dust allergy and nose block there are chances of polyp formation in your nose. Start tab. Allegra-m daily at bed time and ezicas-f nasal spray 2 puffs twice a day for 2 weeks along with that steam inhalation. If u don' t get relief after this get ct scan done to confirm the diagnosis.

First of all you must have an ecg of heart & ct/mri of brain of your father so that we can make a diagnosis, high bp with dm can create some embolism in brain, so we need these two tests. Then consult me with private consultation, everything will be all right. Ok take care of your father sahib, may he live long.

My wife has 43 years old lady. She has filling dry throat in night since three months. Why? And What she should do?
Hello, do your wife suffer with pain in throat or if any other associated symptoms are there then please explain so that i would be able to give you proper medication. The most common cause of dry throat is drying out of the mucus membranes, often as a result of exercise, sleeping with your mouth open, breathing through your mouth, living in a dry environment, or simply not drinking enough fluids.

Generally if the ear is clean then the water inside the ear goes out on its own if you shake the head. Wax is one of the reasons for the water to get trapped inside the ear. The wax has to be removed if there is any. Consult an ent surgeon who will examine you & treat the problem accordingly.

Top 5 Sinus-Relief Home Remedies

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Top 5 Sinus-Relief Home Remedies
Acute sinusitis (acute rhinosinusitis) causes your nasal passages (sinuses) to become inflamed and swollen. This interferes with drainage and causes mucus to build up. It is difficult to breathe, area around your eyes and face may be swollen. Acute sinusitis is most often caused by the common cold. Other triggers are allergies, bacterial and fungal infections.

These self-help steps can help relieve sinusitis symptoms:
1. Get good rest. This will help your body fight infection and speed recovery.
2. Drink plenty of fluids: Like, water or juice. This will help dilute mucous secretions and promote drainage. Avoid beverages that contain caffeine or alcohol, as they can be dehydrating.
3. Sleep with your head elevated. This will help your sinuses drain, reducing congestion.
4. Moisten your sinus cavities: Drape a towel over your head as you breathe in the vapour from a bowl of hot water. Or take a hot shower. This will help ease pain and help mucus drain.
5. Apply warm compresses to your face. Place warm, damp towels around your nose, cheeks and eyes to ease facial pain.
