It is wrong concept, Voice box (larynx) is situated far away from tonsil and adenoid, no chance of voice problem – Only nasal voice will improve after Endoscopic Adenoidectomy.
It is purely wrong concept- it spreads automatically. If you remove properly chance of spread is less. If you use laser scalpel laser itself prevents spread of cancer.
This problem can be one of many; you may have developed a chronic external ear infection, or there may be a perforation in your ear. The perforation can be closed by an Ant. Window technique typanoplasty. 99% success rate.
There are many conditions, which the lay persons GP’s often tend to group under the heading of ‘sinus disease’. You may be suffering from either or all of these problems: a deviated septum(the central partition between the nostrils), allergies, enlarged turbinate’s, allergic polyps or chronic sinusitis. Sometimes, even enlarged adenoids can persist in adulthood cause obstruction to nasal breathing.
Have you been assessed for allergies? Has a CT scan been performed to analyze sinus disease? Correct recognition of the problem is a pre-requisite for effective treatment, and this is the pitfall that most failures fall victim to. For the most part, if correctly recognized and treated, a beneficial result may be expected.
Definitely the nose can be brought into harmonious alignment with the rest of your facial features in most cases. This can be performed by a minimal or no external incision. The functional aspect can be simultaneously corrected. It should be correctly assessed by a competent authority, who could advise you more specifically.
The physician is right… There is no core. However, there are effective methods of control. You must first find out the source of your allergies. This can be done with allergy testing. You must also see if you have any other disorder like polyp or sinusitis, which also can be treated effectively. A combination of allergy, avoidance, effective medication and immunotherapy can be alleviating your symptoms greatly.
The possible causes of hearing loss are many. To list a few :
Even though screening is designed to detect hearing loss as early as possible, some children don’t develop hearing loss until later in life. In those instances, parents, or grandparents are often the first to notice. During the first year, notice whether your baby reacts to loud noises, imitates sounds, and begins to react to his or her name. At age 2, check whether or not your child plays with his or her voice, imitates simple words, and enjoys games. Is a he or she using two-word sentence to talk about and ask for things? At age 3, notice whether or not he or she begins to understand and follows simple directions. If for any reason you think your child is not hearing well, talk to the doctor. Accurate tests are available where even a new born can be diagnosed for even a mild hearing impairment.
The noisy sounds of snoring occur when there is an obstruction to the free flow of air through the passages at the back of the mouth and nose. This is the collapsible part of the airway where the tongue and upper throat meet the soft palate and uvula (the fleshy structure that dangles from the roof of the mouth back into the throat). When these structures strike against each other and vibrate during breathing that is snoring.
Persons who snore have at least one of the following problems :
This is the question, which is foremost in the mind of the patient. Over the years numerous treatment methods have been tried with varying results. Various mechanical devices have been patented and in fact more than 300 such devices exist. The efficacy of this kind of treatment is always in doubt.
Whatever the cause of the snoring, the first line of treatment is always to improve general health. Regular exercises, good sleeping habits combined with avoidance of alcohol and sleeping pills and loss of weight will help a majority of mild and occasional snorers. Heavy snorers, those who snore in any position they sleep in and the so-called “Obnoxious-Snorers” – need more help than the suggestions above. The heavy snorer requires a through examination of the nose, mouth, palate and neck. Treatment will of course depend on the diagnosis. However a majority of patients will benefit significantly from a procedure called “Laser-assisted – Uvuloplasty” – In this technique the excess of tissue in the air passage, which is causing the obstruction, is excised with the help of the CO2. laser. This simple procedure replaces other older and more extensive operations done previously.
The adenoids are a single clump of a tissue in the back of the nose (nasopharynx). The tonsils are two clumps of tissue, on either side of the throat, embedded in a pocket at the side of the palate(roof of the mouth). The lower edge of each tonsil is beside the tongue.
Socially – yes. It is disruptive to family life. It makes the snorer an object of ridicule and causes other household members sleepless nights and resentfulness. Snorers become unwelcome roommates on vacations or business trips.
And medically – Yes. It disturbs the sleeping patterns of the snorer himself, so that he may not sleep restfully. Furthermore, heavy snorers tend to develop high blood pressure at a younger age than non-snorers.
The most exaggerated form of snoring is known as obstructive sleep apnea, when loud snoring is interrupted by frequent episodes of totally obstructed breathing. This is serious if the episodes last over 10 seconds each and occur more than 7 times per hour. Your physician may recommend a laboratory sleep study as a way of evaluating your symptoms. Apnea patients may experience 30 to 300 obstructed events per night. And many spend as much as half their sleep time with blood oxygen levels below normal. During their obstructive episodes, the heart must pump harder to circulate the blood faster. This can cause irregular heartbeats, and after many years it leads to elevated blood pressure and heart enlargement. The immediate effect of this oxygen starvation is that the person must sleep in a lighter stage and tense his muscles enough to open his airway to get air into his lungs. Persons with obstructive sleep apnea may spend little of their night time hours in the deep-sleep stages that are essential for a good rest. Therefore they awaken exhausted and are sleepy much of the day. They may fall asleep while driving to work or while on the job. Long term damage to the heart and lungs is also observed.
The tonsils and the adenoids are mostly composed of lymphoid tissue, which is found throughout gastro intestinal tract and on the base of the tongue. Lymphoid tissue is composed of lymphocytes; which are mostly involved in antibody production. Since we generally consider antibody production to be a good thing, many studies have been performed to try to clarify the importance of the tonsils. To date, there seems to be no adverse effect on the immune status or health of patients, who have had them removed. Any noticeable effect has generally been positive. It appears that the tonsils and the adenoids were not “designed” to effectively handle the multitude or viral infections that occur in children in an urban population. It is clear that in many cases the tonsil and/or the adenoids become “dysfunctional” and are more of a liability than an asset.
In general only if they are enlarged or otherwise have been causing problems themselves. The tonsils rarely, if ever, are associated with ear disease. However, if we are removing adenoids because they are enlarged or obstructed, we tend to be relatively aggressive with borderline enlarged tonsils. Too often, several months later, when we left such tonsils, they become enough of a problem to warrant removal.
Complications are rare, and usually minor. Anesthetic risk is usually related to the health of the patientï¿½ serious anesthetic complication can occur, but are very unusual. Bleeding is rare, we have had no serious bleeding in over 300 patients, and only a few minor bleeding episodes. The adenoid “bed” usually becomes superficially infected, and can cause 7-10 days of bad breathe, but serious infections are very rare. If adenoids are routinely removed in all children, without careful consideration and examination, a few children will have “velopharyngeal insufficiency”, meaning that sounds or liquids can escape up the back of the nose; effecting speech and/or swallowing. We have never encountered that complication, but it has been reported by others surgeons. In other words some children should not undergo adenoidectomy because of their special anatomy.
In general yes, the adenoids usually shrink (regress) in the second decade of life. However, years of any of the problems above may be too high of a price to pay for waiting. In particular, blockage and sleep apnea may result in permanent adverse changes in facial or dental developmentï¿½ in addition to the adverse effects on growths and learning caused by the chronic poor sleeping.
Now best technique is endoscopic adenoidectomy with the powered instrument (micro debridor). It is a direct vision technique. So all adenoid tissue will be removed, no chance of residual adenoid. So no chance of recurrence also.
Adenoidectomy is much less painful than a tonsillectomy. Most children need no pain medicationsï¿½ a few benefit from acetaminophen (Tylenol) bad breathe for 7-10 days. A few children will complaint of a stiff or sore neck (from irritation of the neck muscles underneath the adenoid bed). We do not limit activity (playing or swimming), although some surgeons do so. The patient may consume a normal diet. We usually see patients 2-4 weeks post operatively to ensure normal function and healing.
The CO2 and diode lasers are presently the most widely used lasers in ENT surgery. We use the diode surgery for indication in the oral cavity and nose while the CO2laser is used for surgeries in the throat (vocal cords and for snoring).
Surgical laser is most widely used in the field of ENT surgery. Some indications include removal of tonsils, turbinate reduction, snoring, and surgeries for the vocal cord. Kindly refer to list of indications listed in the site.
The laser beam used in ENT surgery is totally safe and emits no harmful radiation (like those emitted by x rays or atomic radiation.) The laser device is totally safe and the laser is used for surgeries in new born infants, children and pregnant women, too. It also has no adverse effect on patients with cardiac problems.
Laser surgery is absolute safe.
The laser beam is a light scalpel. The post op pain is less and there is less scaring/ tissue damage thus giving better results. (Additionally, the red light used in lasers serves as a bio stimulation tool and there is extensive literature in its support).
The normal conditions which apply for traditional surgery are followed.
The CO2laser beam is a no contact technique. Thus no chances of infection arise due to the laser beam. For contact lasers the fibers are made aseptic and no contamination can arise due to it.
The laser surgery in ENT is in most cases a day care surgery. This reduces cost of staying in the hospital. Internationally lasers are used to perform surgery on a day care basis. The surgical laser minimizes blood loss and thus chances of giving additional blood are extremely rare. This is also a cost saving factor.
No. since the laser beam is a light scalpel there are no known cases of long term problems due to the surgical laser.
Yes, there are certainly few things if maintained properly can safegurde from ENT problems.
