Nasal Bone Curvature
The partition in the nose that separates both nostrils is called the septum. Cartilage forms the anterior part of this compartment and bone tissue forms the posterior part. The displacement of cartilage and/or bones towards one side of the passage is called septum deviation. It is usually due to trauma. A growth is also observed in the structure called concha, which has the function of heating and humidifying the air, opposite the side with the inclination.
It causes complaints such as unilateral or bilateral nasal obstruction, nasal discharge, nose bleeding, frequent recurrent sinusitis attacks, headache, nasal discharge that does not respond to treatment, snoring, and cessation of breathing during sleep.
What is Nasal Bone Curvature?
It is a disease that significantly reduces the quality of life. It causes distraction and loss of performance. Additional health problems caused by the disease are also important.
When mouth breathing has to be done instead of the nose, the functions of heating, humidifying and cleaning the air, which are the nasal functions, are disabled. The inhaled air descends directly into the lungs. Deviation negatively affects the sense of smell and thus the sense of taste. Fatigue and excessive sleepiness occur during the day due to snoring. Bad breath, dry mouth, dental diseases also negatively affect the patient's life.
Depending on the general state of fatigue, excessive weight gain, failure in school, and inability to enjoy life are present in most of the patients. Cases with mild deviations or patients with deviations but without complaints do not require treatment. Treatment is surgery.
Although the surgery is mostly performed under general anesthesia, it can also be performed under local anesthesia. The operation is performed by entering through the nostrils. There is no trace from the outside. Swelling does not occur on the face and eyelids. Classic tampons are not applied after the surgery. Rarely, a silicone pad is used for support and is removed after a day.
