Why is the curvature of the nasal septum dangerous?
Persistent, long-lasting and often recurring rhinitis, otitis media, sinusitis and other ENT diseases can be a consequence of the curvature of the nasal septum. This pathology is common, and both children and adults suffer from it. Curvature of the nasal septum in most cases occurs due to abnormalities in the development of the bone structure of the skull.
The nasal septum is a thin cartilaginous plate that divides the nasal cavity into two halves. This plate is clamped between two rigid bone formations that make up the bottom and the arch. The curvature of the nasal septum occurs when the growth of the cartilaginous plate outstrips the growth of the bones of the skull. In this case, under the pressure of the bone, the nasal septum bends, taking various shapes: C-shaped, S-shaped, and others. The cartilage tissue of the septum is covered with a mucous membrane that makes up the tissue of the inner surface of the nose.
Protrusions of the deviated nasal septum impede the normal passage of air through the nose, and the mucous membrane cannot fully perform its important functions of warming and purifying the inhaled air. This is the reason for frequent colds: chronic rhinitis, to which sinusitis often joins, which, in turn, aggravates the situation. The curvature of the nasal septum, due to a violation of the patency of the nasal passages, and so leads to insufficient oxygen supply to the body, and the inflamed, edematous mucous membrane worsens this condition at times. Chronic oxygen starvation is formed.
Oxygen starvation, and even constant, does not pass without a trace for the body. Its result can be different, from persistent headaches to loss of potency, and this is always a very bad result. Children with this
pathology generally lag behind their peers in learning, adults are also unable to concentrate, sleep is disturbed, irritability and nervousness appear. Often people are treated for years for chronic rhinitis, headaches, sleep disorders, and other things, not suspecting that the matter is in the curvature of the nasal septum.
Meanwhile, the curvature of the nasal septum is completely removable. For this, a simple surgical intervention is performed, which allows the cartilage to return to the correct anatomical shape. However, surgical treatment is usually used in adults when the formation of the skull bones has already been completed. Treatment of curvature of the septum in children consists in the general strengthening of the body and the prevention of infectious diseases.
