Are You Tired of Sinus Pain ?

An inflammation or swelling of a tissue that lines the sinuses is called sinusitis. Healthy sinus cavities are filled with air. But when they are blocked and filled with fluid, the growth of germs in the cavities, cause infection.
Causes for Sinus Blockage are common cold, deviated septum, small growths in the nose lining called nasal polyps, and swelling in the nose lining called allergic rhinitis. Sinusitis is divided into acute, sub-acute, chronic, and recurrent.
Initially, sinusitis is treated with antibiotics, nasal decongestant sprays, antihistamines (to control allergic stimulants), topical nasal corticoids, and nasal saline washes. When all the above treatments do not work with the patient, he /she will be advised for sinusitis surgery.

A modernized Endoscopic Sinus Surgery is preferred for recovery within a limited period. Nasal endoscopic surgery is suggested for various conditions relating to the nose as well as other neighboring organs. It is used to diagnose and treat the following conditions:
  • Brain, eyes, and face affected by sinus infections
  • Leakage of brain fluid into the nose
  • Disorders in tear ducts
  • Chronic sinusitis which persists for more than 3 months
Though sinusitis can be treated with non-surgical procedures, surgery is preferred for a permanent solution.

Endoscopic nasal surgery device is a long thin rod with an attached camera on its head that is inserted into the nasal cavity through the natural orifice. This surgery involves lesser nasal packing and milder pain.
It is performed under general or local anesthesia which depends on the duration and severity of the procedure.
Soon after the patient is sedated, the endoscope is inserted through the nostril for viewing the nasal sinuses. Abnormalities or infections are identified by doctors on a live screen through the camera attached on the device. Sometimes, nasal packing may be provided to control bleeding. But in most cases, nasal packing will be provided after surgery which depends on the condition treated. The pain is mild and the period of recovery depends solely on the patients’ health.

Pediatric Snoring

Today's children are tomorrow's citizens. The future of human societies solely depend on children. So it's important to take care of their health. Pediatric snoring is a condition which is seen in children. If left untreated and unnoticed, it can lead to serious health issues. Aum ENT Clinic offers the services of best ENT Surgeon in Mumbai.

Snoring is the result of an obstructed air movement while breathing, when you are in a sleep. Here the upper airways of the respiratory system vibrates, which results in sound. Your child’s snoring may sound cute to you, but sometimes it can be a sign of sleep disorder.

Causes of snoring

1. Respiratory infection: If your child has nasal blockage due to cold, it will force them to breath through mouth which leads to snoring.

2. Enlarged tonsils and adenoids: The main cause of snoring in children is their enlarged tonsils and adenoids. The swollen glands make child uncomfortable throughout the night and thus they face difficulty in breathing.

3. Deviated septum: When the airways of two nostrils are displaced, the passage of one nostril becomes smaller than other. This reduces airflow and cause difficulty in breathing.

4. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA): Only 3 % of children suffer from OSA. It is a serious condition in which the respiratory system of children becomes obstructed. If this condition is left untreated it can lead to serious health issues.


Symptoms of complicated snoring in children
  • Frequent night time sweating
  • Inward movement of rib cage while breathing
  • Unusual positions
  • Obesity
  • Morning headaches
  • Chronic bedwetting
  • Frequent sleep walker
  • Pediatric hypertension

1. Non surgical treatment : Non invasive treatment uses Continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP). It is a portable device fitted to nose when required. This help the person to breath easily.

2. Surgical treatment: Adenotonsillectomy is a nasal reconstruction performed in children to correct their snoring. Septoplasty, semnoplasty, functional rhinoplasty are the various surgical procedures used to remove the nasal obstruction in adults. In addition to this palatal surgery is also performed to remove tonsils and a portion of soft palate.

Septoplasty in Mumbai

Septoplasty is a surgical procedure done to straighten the nasal septum, the partition between the two nasal cavities. A deviated septum occurs when the cartilage that separates your nostrils is out of position. 

Symptoms :
  • Breathing problems
  • Chronic infections of the nasal sinus
  • Fluid build up inside the anus
  • Pain

Treatment procedure :

Septoplasty Treatment is performed under local or general anesthesia. It takes below an hour and is usually carried out on a day surgery basis. A small incision is made inside the nose. The mucosal lining of the septum is detached from the cartilage and bones of the septum. The deviated portions of the septum are removed or straightened. THe nasal lining mucous membrane is replaced. Splints or packs are placed in the nose for few days. These splints have a straw that allows the patient to breathe from the nose and makes swallowing much easier. There are no external  bruises or swelling of the eyes because the outer vnasal bones are not broken or interfered.

Precautions needed after septoplasty surgery are :

  • Avoid blowing or rubbing the nose
  • Keep the head elevated while sleeping
  • Avoid strenuous activities, such as running or sports which results a high blood pressure and it cause nosebleed
