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. If your septum is surgically corrected, then your turbinates may need attention because the altered septal anatomy may create a new problem with enlarged turbinates. I address both at the time of surgery. Review these questions with your ENT surgeon. Good luck. ...Read more

My paranasal sinuses test show:nasal septum is  deviated, nasal turbinates are prominent and both maxillary sinuses shows mucosal thickening sinusitis?

Deviated septum: a deviated septum can be corrected surgically to bring the septum to the midline. If there are symptoms like nasal obstruction, snoring or recurrent sinusitis, have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist. ...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?

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

What does mild polypoid mucosal thickening in the inferior lateral right maxillary sinus mean?

What does mild polypoid mucosal thickening in the inferior lateral right maxillary sinus mean?

Depends: Based on a CT scan that description usually means inflammation in the floor of the right maxillary sinus. If during a common viral cold this may be normal. If chronic it could mean mild chronic sinusitis. Depending on your anatomy sometimes this may be related to a dental infection or process. This may also be a completely incidental finding. ...Read more

Swollen nose: It means that your nasal septum is likely normal and the obstruction is from swelling of the nasal turbinate- If the swelling is seasonal , then allergy is the likely cause. If it is not, then one need to consider other probabilities as well. Since you didn't complete the sentence accentuated by ...., can't answer this part of your question. ...Read more

I have ear pressure bcz hyperpneumatised both frontal and maxillary sinuses.Mucosal polyp in both maxillary sinus, nasal septum deviation.Surgery need?

Sinusitis : Surgery is sometimes needed... See a rhinologist (an ENT sub-specialist) to sort out your options. In my practice around 15% of patients with your symptoms ultimately require surgery. 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

Smr turbinates(h) ethmoidectomy total, sphenoid & maxillary endoscopy w tissue removal, prtl excision turbinates fees image guidance please translate

FESS: Smr: this means that the surgeon removed inner tissue of the turbinate while sparing the outer lining (mucosa). Sounds like they were partially removed too. The rest relates to opening various sinuses under the guidance of a special ct scan photo (taken prior to surgery). ...Read more

Please translate: "mucous retention cyst in right maxillary sinus. Bulbous mucosal thickening of left inferior turbinate is noted. Mucosal retention cyst is also noted within left aspect of nasopharynx."

Antral cyst: It is a common condition related to allergic rhinitis. In general, no surgical treatment is needed unless the cyst are very large and obstructing the outflow tract of the sinus. The enlarged inferior turbinate is a result of allergy. It can be treated with medication or surgery. ...Read more

Ct results1mild mucosal thickening involving the ethmoid air cells and small mucous retention in the left maxillary sinus.2small concha bullosa bilaterally without ostiomeatal stenosis. Please explain?

Sinus CT: Concha bullosa are common anatomic variants of bones in the nasal cavity. When they are large, they can obstruct the sinus drainage pathway and predispose to sinusitis. When small, usually of no concern. Small mucus retention cysts and mild mucosal thickening may be related to mild chronic sinusitis. However, these mild findings may not even cause noticeable symptoms. ...Read more

Mri: mild opacification of the inferior left maxillary & right sphenoid sinuses. A mild opacification is seen in the inferior right mastoid air cells?

Mri: mild opacification of the inferior left maxillary & right sphenoid sinuses. A mild opacification is seen in the inferior right mastoid air cells?

If no symptoms....: Probably nothing to worry about. Many patients have some mucosal thickening or a small amount of fluid in 1 or more of the sinuses or mastoid air cells. However, if there is pressure, pain or tenderness over the sinuses or around/behind an ear, a fever or foul smelling, bloody or purulent nasal secretions, a sinus infection or mastoiditis is a concern. Please see your doctor. ...Read more

CT scan The frontal sinuses are well-developed. There is mild mucosal thickening involving the inferior aspect of the bilateral frontal sinuses.


CT  scan 
The frontal sinuses are well-developed. There is mild mucosal thickening involving the inferior aspect of the bilateral frontal sinuses.

What's the question?: You have given us a statement, not a question. I assume you want to know what the radiological diagnosis means. In my experience, when a radiologist states mild mucosal thickening in any sinus, it is probably not of much clinical significance. Are you symptomatic, are other sinuses involved, do you have headaches, and finally are you ill? We need to know these things to help you. ...Read more

Borderline inferior cerebellar ectopia present, the cerebellar tonsils demonstrate mild inferior herniation, measuring 4 mm sagittal sequence, means?

Borderline inferior cerebellar ectopia present, the cerebellar tonsils demonstrate mild
inferior herniation, measuring  4 mm sagittal sequence, means?

It most likely: doesn't mean anything. If that is the only finding, and the tonsils are otherwise normally shaped, some use less than 5mm as the normal range, so by that criteria 4mm would be normal. Others call 3-5mm benign tonsillar ectopia, an incidental asymptomatic finding. Most consider greater than 5mm to be abnormal(Chiari 1 malformation). The measurement is from the skull base to the tonsil tip. ...Read more

What this mean? CT scan
There is a right sided concha bullosa involving the right middle turbinate. The nasal septum is midline.

Concha bullosa: This is an air pocket in the middle turbinate. Turbinates warm and humidifies the air you breathe. This anatomical deviation along with turbinate enlargement can lead to sinus blockage. This can predispose to sinus infections. ...Read more
