Abstract

Objective

Objective of this study is to compare complications in postseptoplasty patients using conventional nasal packing and glove finger packing.

Materials and methods

In our study 95 patients who underwent septoplasty were enrolled and written consent taken for the study among these 95 patients, 50 patients were put in group A and 45 patients in group B. In group A patients glove finger packing was done and in group B patients conventional packing using medicated gauze was done and postoperative complications like postoperative pain, hemorrhage, septal perforation, toxic shock syndrome, septal hematoma, septal deviation and synechia/adhesion bands were compared between two groups, follow-up was done for both groups for 3 weeks.

Result

Our study showed that their was significantly less pain in group A patients and also their was less incidence of synechia in group A patients as compared to group B patients, their was not much difference in other complications.

Conclusion

Our results point out that glove finger pack has more advantage than conventional medicated gauze pack. We recommend use of glove finger pack after septoplasty procedure.

Transnasal Endoscopic Surgery in Retro-orbital Abscess

[Year:2012] [Month:January-April] [Volume:5] [Number:1] [Pages:3] [Pages No:14 - 16]

Keywords: Endoscopy,Orbit,Abscess,Sinus surgery

Abstract

Introduction

Transnasal endoscopic approach is well established in the management of subperiosteal abscess but retro-orbital abscess is commonly treated by external surgical approach. There are only two articles published on endoscopic drainage of retro-orbital abscess. We present our experience in the management of retro-orbital abscesses by transnasal endoscopic surgery.

Methods

Retrospective case charts review. Three cases with retro-orbital abscess were drained with endoscopic approach in last 5 years.

Conclusion

Role of transnasal endoscopic surgery in superior-lateral located intraorbital abscesses could not be evaluated but presented case series will further open the doors for transnasal endoscopic surgery.

Rhinomanometric Assessment of Nasal Airflow in Deviated Nasal Septum

Keywords: Rhinomanometry,Deviated nasal septum,Nasal airflow

Abstract

Objective

The present study was carried out to study rhinomanometrically the nasal airflow in cases of deviated nasal septum and to compare rhinomanometric improvement following surgery with relief in subjective sensation of nasal airflow.

Materials and methods

This study was carried out in our institute from October 2009 to January 2011 including the cases of deviated nasal septum. A total number of 45 patients of deviated nasal symptoms were included in this study. Preoperative and postoperative assessment of nasal airflow were also assessed by rhinomanometry. Twenty cases were kept in control group to compare the nasal airflow.

Results

Good correlation was found between rhinomanometric results and improvement in subjective airflow sensation in patients who underwent septoplasty.

Conclusion

Usual methods of nasal examination, rhinomanometry seems to be of much more importance in understanding nasal airflow and selecting patients for operative intervention than previously thought.

Comparative Study of Septoplasty Alone and with FESS in Maxillary Sinusitis with Septal Deviation

Abstract

Introduction

The study was conducted to asses if septoplasty is adequate for the management of chronic maxillary sinusitis. Chronic maxillary sinusitis is not uncommonly associated with deviated nasal septum (DNS). The randomized study was conducted on 40 cases of medically unmanageable and HRCT proven chronic maxillary sinusitis with DNS.

Materials and methods

The study was conducted in 40 cases of HRCT (PNS) proven chronic maxillary sinusitis which were not cured with medical treatment. The patients were divided randomly in two groups. Group A underwent septoplasty and group B septoplasty along with FESS in the form of uncinectomy and middle meatus antrostomy. Patients having other anatomical factors for example concha were excluded.

Results

Both procedures produced significant improvement in symptomatology and on HRCT (PNS) findings as compared to preoperative status (p-value less than 0.001). Septoplasty was found to be effective in chronic maxillary sinusitis, however, when polyps were present in maxillary sinus, then septoplasty with FESS was found to be better.

Discussion

In cases of chronic maxillary sinusitis with DNS, septoplasty is adequate, however if the maxillary sinus shows polyps on HRCT (PNS) scan then septoplasty should be combined with FESS.

Rhinosporidiosis: Endoscopic Excision and Review of Literature

[Year:2012] [Month:January-April] [Volume:5] [Number:1] [Pages:3] [Pages No:32 - 34]

Keywords: Rhinosporidiosis,Endoscopic surgery,Nose

PDF  |  DOI: 10.5005/jp-journals-10013-1114  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 

Abstract

Objective

To show that endoscopic excision of rhinosporidiosis carries less risk of recurrence.

Materials and methods

Five consecutive patients of rhinosporidiosis were placed for endoscopic excision. The various sized mass were excised completely with safe margin under better illumination, magnification and hemostasis using 30° endoscope with camera and monitor. All the patients were started on dapsone therapy after surgery for 3 months.

Results

There was no recurrence seen on an average 1 year follow-up.

Conclusion

The nasal endoscope plays an important role in localization of site of origin and ensures complete excision with no complications and recurrence. Thus, endoscopic technique of rhinosporidiosis excision is recommended.
