The nose has the important task of regulating, humidifying, warming and purifying the breathing air. Benign growths of the mucous membrane, which grow from the paranasal sinuses into the nasal cavity, chronic inflammation of the paranasal sinuses or curvature of the nasal septum may permanently block nasal breathing. This has far-reaching consequences. Increased mouth breathing puts more pressure on the mucous membranes of the throat, trachea and bronchi, which can lead to increased throat inflammation and inflammation of the lower airways (bronchi). Furthermore, the paranasal sinuses may be displaced by polyps, which leads to the aeration disorder. This results in recurrent sinusitis. Since nasal breathing is also important for the ventilation of the ear, it can also lead to ear infections and hearing problems.
Nasal polyps can usually be removed on an outpatient basis. Sinus surgery often requires hospitalization.
As long as the polyps do not cause discomfort, they do not need surgery. Often an attempt is made to treat the polyps with cortisone-containing nasal sprays. However, as soon as negative effects of the polyps become noticeable, such as permanently impaired nasal breathing, sinusitis or frequent respiratory tract infections, the doctor will recommend surgical removal of the polyps.
Especially with one-sided polyps must be thought of the possibility of a malignant tumor. The removed polyp tissue is therefore always examined histologically.
The removal of the nasal polyps takes place with the so-called "polyp loop". This is a kind of metal loop, which the doctor introduces through the nose and lays over the polyp. The loop is then pulled together until the polyp is severed. Alternatively, the polyps can also be removed with the laser. After ablation, the nose is "tamponized" to stop the bleeding for 1 - 2 days.
If at the same time there is a chronic inflammation of the paranasal sinuses, the ducts of the frontal and maxillary sinuses may also be widened so that more air can enter the paranasal sinuses and purulent discharge can flow away better.
If the paranasal sinus involvement is involved, the sole polyp treatment is sometimes insufficient and at the same time diseased mucous membrane must be removed from the paranasal sinuses (so-called paranasal sinus repair). Also this procedure takes place today with an endoscope (mirror device) through the nose, but it may be advised to a stationary stay of about one week. If the inflammation of the paranasal sinus is not treated there is a risk that the polyps will recur.
