Turbinate Reduction

What is Turbinate Reduction

Turbinates are responsible for cleansing and humidifying the air passing through the nostrils into the lungs. They are small structures inside the nose surrounded by a mucous membrane and vascular tissue outside. Turbinates can become inflamed and swollen due to infection, irritation, or allergies, causing nasal obstruction and producing an excessive amount of mucus and resulting in obstructive sleep apnoea. Obstructive Sleep Apnoea is a sleep disorder which means a decrease in airflow when the patient is trying to breathe. It is the most common type of sleep-disordered breathing and it involves recurrent episodes of collapsing of upper airway during sleep. Turbinates reduction surgery can be done to fix blocked airways and improve breathing.

Treatment

Procedure

Medical therapy is the first-line approach towards treating turbinates dysfunction. The ENT specialist starts with a complete nasal diagnosis to find the root cause of symptoms such as sleep apnea and snoring. Upon diagnosis, several categories of medications will be prescribed to help reduce inflammation. However, when medical interventions aren’t as effective as expected, the ENT specialist moves on to the surgical intervention. Turbinate Reduction is the procedure where the nasal turbinates are inspected and reduced in size for improved nasal flow. Turbinates surgery is performed through the nostrils under general anesthesia. In some cases, turbinates surgery is performed in conjunction with sinus surgery to improve nasal breathing.
