Snoring and Sleep Apnea (Pauses in Breathing During Sleep) Surgery
Sleep-related breathing disorders are an increasingly common group of sleep-related diseases. A quality sleep is the first and most important condition for a quality life. Snoring is a condition that is considered normal and negligible in daily life.Snoring is the vibration of muscles in upper respiratory tract and the resulting sound due to the decrease in the tension of such muscles. Sleep apnea is the cessation of breathing for 10 seconds or more during sleep. The ENT unit deals with the medical and surgical interventions of snoring and sleep apnea.
Tonsils are the lymphoid tissues on both sides of our throat. They’re one of our immune system organs. It is the organ that is the starting point of the immune system, which captures microbes such as viruses and bacteria entering our body through respiration particularly in 0-3 years of age, and produces antibodies taking part in our fight with the microbes. If tonsils become dysfunctional, it may be necessary to apply various treatment methods and a tonsillectomy.
Adenoid tissue is a tissue located at the back of our nose and involved in the body’s defense system. Enlarged adenoid sometimes can cause many problems such as snoring, sleep apnea, speech disorder, disorders in development of jaw, teeth and face. Removal of adenoid tissue that causes harm to the body and does not function properly does not affect the immune system.
Nose Job (Rhinoplaty)
Rhinoplasty can be applied for a number of reasons, including not liking one’s own nose, deformities caused by trauma, beak nose, long nose, nostrils that are large or asymmetric. In addition, abnormal growth of tissues (polyps) inside the nose, deviation in nose and problem with entering of air into the structure of nasal wings may lead to many health problems such as respiratory distress, chronic headaches, sinusitis and sleep apnea, and rhinoplasty also provides solution to these problems.
Concha is the name given to the organs that warm and humidify the air we breathe in through the nose and play a role in the regulation of respiratory function. Conchae can grow in size for reasons such as air pollution, smoking, sinusitis, rhinitis, nasal bone curvature. In cases where the conchae grow abnormally and cannot be treated with medications, they should be reduced to their original size by surgery.
Allergic rhinitis is a condition in which the immune system shows extreme reaction to substances which are considered harmless under normal circumstances. Allergic Rhinitis, also known as hay fever, usually occurs with symptoms such as sneezing, stuffy nose and itching. When allergic rhinitis is not treated, it is a disease that reduces your quality of life and triggers different diseases, so you should definitely consult a specialist and plan a treatment.
Headache and imbalance can occur for many different reasons such as neurological, psychiatric disorders and inner ear diseases. The most common cause is Vertigo (dizziness), which is caused by escape of balance crystals in inner ear into semicircular canal. Vertigo is described as dizziness and a sense of loss of balance. The purpose of vertigo treatment is to identify the cause of vertigo and control it. After diagnosis of vertigo, an investigation is conducted to identify the underlying disorder and relevant treatment is applied.
The ear is examined in 3 sections as inner, middle and outer ear, and since the work area is very limited, surgeries are performed with special equipment. Ear microsurgery is applied in eardrum ruptures, bone repair, cholesteatoma, otosclerosis and tube surgeries.
