Indications and contraindication for septoplasty
Indications for septoplasty:
- obstruction of the nasal breathing
- swelling of the mucosa
- smell distortion.
Contraindications for septoplasty:
- blood coagulability disorders
- chronic diseases
Surgeons prescribe laser correction for patients with such disorders:
- light cartilage distortion
- cartilage overgrowth.
Advantage: the laser septoplasty does not require incisions. During surgery, there is no bleeding. The recovery is faster than after surgical correction.
Disadvantage: the laser influences only on the cartilage tissue, so a procedure cannot straighten the bone.
Surgical septum correction
Using a scalpel, a surgeon exfoliates the mucosa and corrects cartilage. When the septum is curved, the doctor removes tissues that make breathing difficult.
Advantage: the procedure can correct serious defects.
Disadvantage: recovery takes longer than after non-operative septoplasty. During the rehabilitation, hematomas and swelling may be observed.
During the procedure, a doctor places special tools into the nostrils to break the septum. Then tissues grow together and take the correct shape.
Advantage: the procedure does not require incisions. Rehabilitation is faster than after surgery.
Disadvantage: osteotomy does not correct serious distortion.
Preparation for septoplasty
Preparation for the correction of the septum includes:
- consultation with a surgeon;
- endoscopic examination of the nasal cavity (rhinoscopy);
- laboratory blood test;
- CT or X-ray of the nose sinuses;
- consultation with an anesthesiologist.
A patient undergoes the procedures the day before septoplasty.
The intervention is conducted under local or general anesthesia. Its type depends on the surgery complexity.
The septoplasty process depends on the diagnosis and septoplasty type. Non-surgical correction does not require incisions. In case of surgical septoplasty, a doctor makes the incision in the nasal cavity and changes the structure of tissues. After the operation, a surgeon stitches the nose.
The duration of septoplasty is 1 hour.
A patient is hospitalized for 1 day after an operation. During following next week a patient stays under doctor’s observation.
In some cases, the bleeding may occur within 2-3 days after surgery.
Hematomas and swelling disappear in 14 days.
