Adenoid tissue or nasal flesh is a lymphoid tissue, which is located on the upper part of the soft palate at the back of the nose and protects the body from germs.It is normally found in all children and is not seen by open mouth. Nasal problems, one of the most common problems in childhood, increase in parallel with upper respiratory tract infections, especially in winter.
Due to the deterioration of sleep quality due to the growth of nasal flesh, the growth and development rates of children may decrease as they reduce the growth hormone secretion during sleep.However, in these children who breathe by mouth, jaw and tooth structure can change and dental caries can be seen more.Due to this nasal and nasal passage obstruction, symptoms such as respiratory distress, mouth breathing, snoring, sleep apnea, recurrent or inflamed inflammation of the nose, nasal and sinuses, middle ear inflammations and severe hearing may also occur.If these symptoms are present, enlarged or inflamed nasal flesh should be removed by surgery.
The patient will sleep for approximately 20 minutes under general anesthesia. The surgeon will take the nasal flesh through your child’s mouth. There is no need to make an incision in the skin for nasal surgery.Your child will be awake in the waking room. In case of respiratory distress or bleeding, he may need to be taken to the operating room again. Generally, total hospital stay is between 5-10 hours.
