Septoplasty in Turkey, Istanbul
Septoplasty is the surgical correction of defects and deformities of the nasal septum (the partition between the nostrils). The septum is a structure made of bone and cartilage in the central portion of the nose that separates one nasal cavity from another. When the septum is deviated, it can block one side of the nose and significantly disturb airflow.
Septoplasty attempts to straighten the septum as much as possible in the midline position and open the airway by removing the deviated portion and restructuring of the remaining bone and cartilage.
EXAMPLES OF SEPTOPLASTY INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
Deviation patients often apply to us with complaints of nasal congestion and difficulty breathing through the nose. Generally, deviations that occur as a result of trauma, nasal obstruction and deformity of the nose also occur.
Apart from nasal congestion and deformity, patients with deviation apply to us with complaints such as severe headache, snoring, olfactory disturbance, recurrent nosebleeds, nasal crusting, frequent upper respiratory tract infections, and frequent sinusitis attacks as a result.
If a cause of headache is not found in these departments after Eye, Neurology and Physical Therapy examinations in patients who apply to us with headache, after detailed Ear Nose Throat examination, we see that the headache is usually due to deviation or sinusitis accompanied by deviation. It should not be forgotten that; Sometimes even the presence of deviation can cause headache even if there is no sinusitis.
Sometimes deviation alone can be the cause of snoring in patients who apply with the complaint of snoring. In this case, correction of the deviation can make snoring disappear.
Elimination of the deviation becomes even more important in patients with heart and lung diseases accompanied by deviation. Providing comfortable breathing after deviation surgery in patients with heart disease or lung disease accompanied by deviation, with or without snoring, significantly increases the quality of life of patients.
After a detailed examination of people who apply with a smell disorder, we find that the reason for this is sometimes deviation. In cases where the olfactory disorder is due to deviation, we see that the deviation operation we perform provides an improvement in the patient’s complaints.
In our patients who applied to us with the complaint of recurrent nosebleeds, we can see that the reason for this is sometimes due to deviation. We find that the nosebleeds have largely disappeared after the deviation surgery.
