90% of the patients with right sided disease had DNS to right, with associated bilateral concha bullosa
in 20% and left agger nasi cell in 10%.
Massive concha bullosa
with secondary maxillary sinusitis.
A giant bilateral concha bullosa
causing nasal obstruction.
Following the removal of the lateral lamella, a bony enlargement within the concha bullosa
was gently separated from the inner surface of the medial lamella, preserving the middle turbinate attachment to the lamina cribrosa.
The Incidence of Concha Bullosa
and Its Relationship to Nasal Septal Deviation and Paranasal Sinus Disease.
In the present study of 200 cases Concha bullosa
was seen in 86 cases, of which 38 were lamellar and 48 were bulbous.
A concha bullosa
of the middle turbinate most commonly drains into the anterior ethmoid sinus.
deviated nasal septum, concha bullosa
, prominent agger cells, ethmoiditis at the same sitting.
DNS was the most common variation, 20 (26%); Concha bullosa
(CB), 14 (18.2%); paradoxical middle turbinate (PMT), 11 (14.3%); Haller\'s cell, 7 (9.1%); Onodi cells, 6 (7.8%); and pneumatisation of Uncinate process (UP), 4 (5.2%) (Table-1).
Pneumatization of the inferior turbinate, or concha bullosa
of the inferior turbinate, is clinically significant when it causes persistent nasal airway obstruction.
is an aerated turbinate in the nose.
Middle turbinate, Concha Bullosa
, Uncinate process, Agger Nasi cells, Haller cells and Posterior ethmoids showed very good agreement.
