An immunoperoxidase procedure (19) originally developed to detect aMPV antigen was modified to detect hMPV antigen in formalin-fixed nasal turbinate, trachea, and lung tissues by using hMPV B2 polyclonal sera from rabbits.
Tubal obstruction by foreign bodies (5) and aspiration of turbinates leading to respiratory distress (6) following nasotracheal intubation have been previously reported.
Antrostomies were closed in 9 out of 17, and 12 out of the 17 had a lateralized middle turbinate. These problems occurred in spite of the use of gelfilm, stents, and other spacers, he said.
More severe cases may require surgery to reduce the turbinates or adjust the septum and open the sinus outflow tract, Dr.
These herbicides are carcinogenic in rats: acetochlor and alachlor cause tumors in the nasal turbinates, butachlor causes stomach tumors, and metolachlor causes liver tumors.
Since septal deviation causes lateral compression of the middle turbinate and uncinated process pushing them into the infundibulum and thus causes obstruction of osteomeatal complex.
Among all patients, the prevalence was 67% for NVC, 76% for septal deviation, and 72% for inferior turbinate hypertrophy The prevalence in the subgroup of patients with severe/extreme nasal obstruction for NVC, septal deviation, and inferior turbinate hypertrophy was 73,80, and 77%, respectively.
This was followed by cauterization of the stump of the inferior turbinate and control of the associated branch of the sphenopalatine artery.
However, lateral synechia formation between the middle turbinate and the lateral nasal wall is a well-documented complication of ESS, having been reported in 1 to 43% of cases.
Similarly, general practitioners have trend of relating adult nasal obstruction to deviated nasal septum and turbinate hypertrophy generally.
Patients attending the outpatient department of ENT with inferior turbinate hypertrophy with or without DNS who fulfil the inclusion criteria were included in the study.
According to the sites of origin, CPs can be classified as antrochoanal, sphenochoanal, and ethmochoanal.[4] Antrochoanal polyps are the most common form of CPs and originate within the maxillary sinuses.[2],[3] Some cases with CPs arising from the middle and inferior turbinates and the nasal septum have been reported.[4] Herein, we report a case of a CP originating from the superior turbinate that was removed by endoscopic endonasal surgery in a young male.
