Deviated septum (septoplasty) in Turkey

Deviated septum surgery (septoplasty)

Pace deviation is a common problem in most people with different degrees. A patient with severe deviation can correct the deviation by performing a deviation procedure in Turkey.


What is velocity deviation?

The nasal septum (septal septum) is the set of bones and cartilage on the midline that divides the nasal cavity into two symmetrical parts in the normal state, and is covered with skin rich in blood supply.

Deviation of the septum occurs when the nasal septum is curved or displaced from the midline to one side, causing respiratory difficulties for the patient.

Frequency deviation rate

The deviation of the nasal septum from the midline is very common, as many people suffer from deviation of the nasal septum and its problems. studies indicated that only human 20% had a flat and midline nasal septum, while 80% had a somewhat deviated nasal septum.

Although the incidence of deviation is so high that most people are unaware of it and do not need treatment, some cases are so severe and cause significant respiratory problems for the patient that they need treatment.

Reasons for deviation

The deviation of the nasal septum may be congenital, meaning that the person is born with this condition, and it may be the result of a direct injury or trauma to the nose; People usually get these injuries from contact sports, fights, car accidents, or when they fall from heights.

The deviation of the nose may also be the result of a defect in the normal growth process of the nasal septum; When the nose grows, the nasal septum also grows, and it may grow toward one side instead of growing on the midline, and this is the most common cause of deviation in the pace in most cases.

Symptoms of deviation

Most people with a deviated septum have a slight deviation of the nasal septum with no accompanying symptoms.

However, when the nasal septum shifts to one side, one nostril is large, easy to breathe and dry, at the expense of the other, which becomes narrow, congestion, difficulty breathing, and frequent attacks of Sinusitis And other frequent symptoms such as:

  • Blockage of one or both nostrils in which one or both nostrils have narrowed
  • epistaxis (nosebleeds)
  • Back runny nose
  • Facial pain or headache
  • Noisy breathing and snoring while sleeping
  • Sleep apnea syndrome may occur

Diagnosis of deviation

The deviated nasal septum is diagnosed according to the clinical history. The patient talks about the complaint that brought him to the clinic, and the doctor asks some questions about sleep, snoring and respiratory problems.

Then the doctor begins a clinical examination of the nasal cavity using a medical endoscope (a long tube with a bright light at its end) to examine the position of the nasal septum and the degree of its deviation and the effect of the deviation on the size of the nasal opening.

Treatment of deviation of the pace in Turkey

Most people have no symptoms and do not need treatment. In some mild cases, symptoms can be improved with medication using decongestants, antihistamines, nasal sprays, and antibiotics.

In cases of severe nasal deviation, and if medications fail to improve symptoms, surgery and a deviation procedure may be used in order to correct the deviation.

pace deviation process

Deviated septum surgery or “septoplasty” is an outpatient surgical procedure to fix a deviation and make the nasal septum straight and the nostrils symmetrical, making airflow better and breathing easier.

Preparations before the operation of the deviation of the pace

It is better to choose the appropriate age for the operation and not to perform a deviation of the pace for those under the age of fifteen until the nose has stopped growing.

The patient must stop taking some medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen two weeks before the operation and not return to them until two weeks after the operation because these drugs increase the risk of bleeding, and the patient must also stop smoking because it negatively affects the healing process.

The process of correcting the deviation of the pace is carried out under general or local anesthesia and takes from 30 to 90 minutes, and the patient can return to his home on the same day.

How to perform a pacemaker

The surgeon cuts the nasal septum and changes the shape of the cartilage and internal bones as required. This straightens the nasal septum and makes the nasal passage clear for the passage of air.

The doctor may place silicone splints in each nostril to support the nasal septum and stabilize it until it is in place, then the surgical incision is closed with sutures.

The most important tips after the process of deviation of the pace

After performing a deviated septum, the patient will feel mild to moderate pain in his nose and his nose will appear swollen and bruised for several weeks, and breathing through the nose will be uncomfortable or not possible during this period.

The patient can help recovery after the operation by following these steps:

  • Avoid blowing too hard (exhalation is the exhalation of air out of the nose)
  • Using pillows to elevate the head while sleeping
