Radio-wave surgery in otorhinolaryngology
Radio wave surgery is a new non-contact method for incision and coagulation of soft tissues using high-frequency radio waves. Radiosurgery is fundamentally different from other methods of high-frequency electrosurgery, in which tissue damage is characterized by severe burns and charring. Tissue destruction when exposed to the Surgitron radio wave apparatus is several times smaller than when using other electrosurgical equipment, resulting in minimal tissue damage: the absence of a blood clot in the wound after an incision; minimal necrosis in the area of the surgical wound adjacent to the tissues; reduction in the development of inflammation; pronounced early repair and epithelization of tissues and their restoration; low soreness of the postoperative wound; early complete healing of tissues without the formation of a rough scar. Surgitron radiosurgical device is used in otorhinolaryngology to remove nasal polyps, tonsils, papillomas, and for the treatment of nasal asthma.
Laser surgery in otorhinolaryngology
Laser surgery is one of the modern directions in the treatment of ENT pathologies. The impact of laser radiation leads to a more favorable course of the pathological process and accelerate recovery. Laser modes used in medicine do not have a harmful effect on the body as a whole. Laser destruction of tissues is almost bloodless, which is associated with coagulation of blood in the lumen of small-diameter blood vessels in the affected area. The ability to deliver laser energy through the light guide has expanded the capabilities of endoscopic gentle laser surgery. As a rule, performance capability after laser operations is not disturbed, complications occurs rarely. For laser operations, local anesthesia is often sufficient. In the SvetoDar clinic, a surgical laser is used to treat chronic rhinitis (medication, including medication, hypertrophic, allergic), dissection of the synechia of the nasal cavity, treatment of hyperplastic pharyngitis, snoring treatment.
The cause of snoring is a decrease in muscle tonus of the posterior veil of the soft palate, which progresses with age. During sleep, soft palate vibrates, its sagging periodically blocking the upper respiratory airways, which is shown by short-term respiratory arrest (apnea). Violation of nasal breathing, injury, adenoid disease (including hypertrophy of the tonsils) predisposes to the development of snoring. A sharp body weight gain and smoking can provoke the occurrence of snoring.
