Deviated nasal septum with adhesion inferior turbinate at right side.Eustachiantube dyesfunction, is turbinate reduction only useful or with septoplas?

Turbinate Reduction: Hello. The answer to your question depends on your intranasal anatomy.

Allergy , gerd , aspirin, sub-optimal medical treatment can all be to blame. If significant issues are not treated polyps can rapidly recur. I saw a patient who had undergone 63 surgeries for polyps - aspirin! ...Read more

Have bilateral concha bullosa on left,hypertrophied right inferior turbinate,deviated nasal septum.2 swollen nodes on front nd bck of right ear..why?

Anatomy: Concha bullosae are enlarged middle turbinates, which is a variant type of anatomy, causing nasal obstruction. Enlarged inferior turbinates also cause difficulty breathing. A deviated septum is a crooked divider between the right and left nostrils, also causing difficulty breathing. Swollen nodes might be a reaction to a recent or chronic infection. See an otolaryngologist for evaluation. ...Read more

Can Duonase help in treating nasal turbinate hypertrophy and nasal polyps?is duonase similar to Nasonex (mometasone)?

I do not think turbinate hypertrophy will be much effected unless you have nasal allergy. Nasal polyposis will be more effectively treated with oral steroids. ...Read more
