Orrsövényferdülés (Septum) kezelése

Orrsövényferdülés (Septum) kezelése

Mit jelent az orrsövényferdülés és milyen okai lehetnek?

Az orrsövény porcból és csontból álló, nyálkahártyával fedett lemez. Normális esetben az arckoponya középvonalában helyezkedik el, válaszfalat alkotva a jobb és a bal oldali orrüreg között. Gyakran előfordul azonban, hogy az orrsövény nem teljesen a középvonalban fejlődik, rajta kisebb-nagyobb görbületek alakulhatnak ki. Ennek okozója lehet az orrot korábban ért ütés, sokszor azonban e nélkül is kialakulhat orrsövényferdülés. Amennyiben a középvonaltól való eltérés valamelyik irányba jelentős, az egyik orrfél szűkebb, a másik tágabb lesz. Orrsövényferdülés esetében beszélhetünk „C” és „S” alakú ferdülésről is. Az „S” alakú ferdülések mindkét orrfelet egyaránt szűkíthetik.

What solutions are there to treat scurvy?

Nasal septal deviation can only be corrected by surgery, there are no conservative alternatives to medication. Nasal constrictive nasal drops are not indicated for scarring of the nasal septum, they do not solve the cause and their prolonged use may be harmful.

In which cases do you need intervention or surgery?

Minor deviations of the nasal septum usually do not cause any complaints, but deviations that significantly narrow the nasal cavity can obstruct nasal breathing, which may predispose to sinusitis and respiratory infections, in addition to discomfort and snoring. Nasal congestion makes it difficult to ventilate the sinuses, which is why the patient may also suffer more frequently from sinusitis and otitis media. Because of the difficulty in breathing through the nose, mouth breathing becomes more prominent, leading to many health problems. People who breathe through the mouth are more prone to respiratory infections, as the processes in the nasal and sinus cavities (air filtration, humidification) are not carried out, leading to more frequent upper and lower respiratory infections.

What are the conditions for the operation?

Nasal septum surgery is performed in adulthood, when the bony and cartilaginous nasal septum is fully developed and no further changes in shape and size are expected.

How is the surgery done?

A deviated septum can be operated on using several techniques by an ENT specialist. It is always up to the surgeon to choose the right method. The operation consists of removing the deformed nasal septum and repositioning the deformed cartilaginous or bony section. Nasal septoplasty can be performed under local anaesthesia or under general anaesthesia, depending on the patient’s request and the opinion of the operating doctor and the anaesthetist.

What results can be expected after the operation?

By ensuring easier nasal breathing:

  • eliminates breathing-dependent snoring and sleep disturbance
  • improved quality of life
  • Reduced incidence and severity of upper and lower respiratory tract diseases as secondary consequences
  • fewer sinus infections
How long will the recovery take?

Improvement in nasal breathing should be expected 3-4 weeks after the operation, although many people notice a change earlier.
