Nasal surgery

Nasen Operation ACQUA Klinik

Today, operations performed on the nose and nasal sinuses are characterized by the use of navigation systems and advanced technology. ACQUA Klinik conducts more than 2000 surgical procedures in this field every year.

COB - Removal of concha bullosa

Reduction of double middle turbinate (nasal erectile tissue)

A long-term disorder of the nasal sinuses can result in polyp obstruction and a chronic source of infection. Since the nose is always colonized with germs, this can therefore cause recurring infections of the nose and upper airways. Typical symptoms include headaches, a head cold, increased secretion, coughing, hoarseness and olfactory dysfunction.

ENS - Empty Nose Syndrome

Patients suffering from empty nose syndrome (ENS) experience a functional disorder of the nose and nasal mucosa which is associated with difficulty breathing, feelings of nasal obstruction and nasal dryness, resulting in a thickening of nasal mucus and crust formation. The thicker nasal mucus is then no longer able to adequately fulfil its function of cleaning the nasal cavity and can in turn be the cause of infections. Patients often suffer for years before an accurate diagnosis is made. Therapy is difficult, and current treatment involves surgery but also approaches based on medication / molecular biology. With its Nose/Breathing/Smelling department, KOPFZENTRUM is a partner of ENSIA (the Empty Nose Syndrome International Association) and a point of contact for patients from all over the world.

FESS - Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Sinus surgery

A long-term disorder of the nasal sinuses can result in polyp obstruction and a chronic source of infection. Since the nose is always colonized with germs, this can therefore cause recurring infections of the nose and upper airways. Typical symptoms include headaches, a head cold, increased secretion, coughing, hoarseness and olfactory dysfunction.

MUK – Turbinate cautery

Reduction of the inferior turbinate

Enlarged adenoids lead to a narrowing of the nasopharynx. This region is important for nasal breathing, ventilation of the middle ear and for general defence. In affected children, this can hinder breathing through the nose and result in susceptibility to infectious diseases (in particular middle ear infections and bronchitis). Irregular middle ear ventilation can cause liquid to accumulate, in turn impairing the hearing. General growth retardation is frequently observed in affected children. An enlarged inferior nasal turbinate can also hinder nasal breathing.

RPL - Rhinoplasty

You’re planning on having the external shape of your nose corrected. Before the operation occurs, the desired result is planned (ideally with the aid of our 4D Aesthetic Lab - AELAB). This plan should describe as accurately as possible the intended shape and the surgical steps this will require. This plan is contained within section B of this documentation.

SP- Septoplasty

Nasal septum correction

A long-term disorder of the nasal sinuses can result in polyp obstruction and a chronic source of infection. Since the nose is always colonized with germs, this can therefore cause recurring infections of the nose and upper airways. Typical symptoms include headaches, a head cold, increased secretion, coughing, hoarseness and olfactory dysfunction.
