Thumbs Up Sinusitis Vertigo
Sinusitis Vertigo - Sinus Laser Surgery "Changed My Life" Said One Patient
Gentleman named Jason contacted me and said he recently had sinus laser surgery from Dr. Harvey Paley, whose practice is in Beverly Hills, CA. He said flatly that this operation 'changed my life'. This gentleman has had 3 other conventional surgeries in the past 15 years during which time he had lost his sense of smell and sense of taste. Hearing about such a success after a sinus operation is rare in my experience. I personally have had two of them, and they basically didn't work, since I continued to have sinus infections after both of them. In fact, I've heard of very few people who have had sinus surgery and who were pleased about the results over time.

So when someone is as enthusiastic about his operation as Jason is, it is time to listen, especially considering his background of sinus problems. The operational procedure is called Sinu-Clear, and it uses a laser as well as an endoscope. The laser equipment also provides a steady stream of salt water to flow through the nasal passageways while the operation is taking place. There is apparently very little bleeding during the procedure, since the laser cauterizes the tissue being operated on. Because of this there is no need for nasal packing, and this is a huge positive, as those of us who have gone through a conventional operation with a scalpel and had our noses packed can attest. For me it was just awful. The endoscope allows for good viewing by the surgeon, as the camera projects a picture of the nasal cavities being worked on onto a television screen.

Addition to Dr
Paley in Beverly Hills, CA, I found out about two other otolaryngologists who perform the Sinu-Clear sinus laser operation. One is Dr. Vincent Pisciotta in Biloxi, Mississippi, and the other is Dr. Robert Bonham in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Bonham also performs another new operation balloon sinuplasty, which is similar to angioplasty but for the sinus cavities. I understand there may be a few other surgeons in the country who routinely perform the Sinu-Clear operation, and I intend to continue to research this and get the word out. Results will be posted on the blog and forum at ***** I only wish I had heard about this sinus laser surgery procedure years ago. It sounds like it might have been more effective and certainly less painful than the operations I did have. If you are considering being one of the 300,000 people who have sinus operations in the U.S. alone, this procedure is certainly something to know about and consider as an option, even if it were to require travel.

This Type of Approach Seems to Make Perfect Sense
That is, using laser and endoscope technology to limit bleeding and see clearly what is being operated on. The first question I had is 'why are there only a small handful of surgeons in the U.S. doing this operation?' It is not brand new, and in fact this laser sinus surgery was apparently pioneered by Dr. Daniel M. Schuman from Boca Raton, Florida over 10 years ago. Apparently Dr. Schuman has subsequently retired from his medical practice. People always think that they know everything about everything; however, it should be known that no one is perfect in everything. There is never a limit to learning; even learning about Sinus Surgery.

Asked this question to a gentleman from the company that produces the Sinu-Clear laser equipment, a company called PhotoMedex. He said there are many reasons for so few surgeons using the procedure, and most seem to boil down to the reluctance of people, in this case sinus surgeons, to change. In fact PhotoMedex is emphasizing different product lines of medical laser equipment, and the gentleman I spoke with was not optimistic about growth aspects for this procedure. To me this is certainly a shame. I personally have only spoken to one person, Jason, who has undergone the procedure, but he is extremely enthusiastic. I hope to speak to others and get more inputs. I can only say that when someone who has had 3 other operations tries sinus laser surgery and says he has finally regained his sense of smell again after 15 years, then this is worth taking note of, at the very least.

Sinus infection, also known as sinusitis, can cause a great deal of pain. It is the result of an inflammation of the sinus or nasal passages or both. When someone has a sinus infection there are several symptoms that will help him or her to recognize that that is what he or she are suffering from. Sinusitis is often accompanied by a feeling of tenderness or pressure around the nose, eyes, cheeks or forehead. Sometimes it is accompanied by headache pain. If you have a sinus infection you may also have a cough, a fever or congestion resulting in discharge from your nose. A sinus infection can come on suddenly and then leave after the correct treatment, lasting a few weeks, or it can be a chronic problem that lasts more than eight weeks at a time with at least four occurrences yearly. Surprisingly most cases of sinusitis are chronic in nature.

The Most Frequent Cause of a Sinus Infection is the Common Cold
The cold causes congestion in the nasal passages and this inhibits the drainage of the sinuses and can cause them to become inflamed. But sinusitis can also be caused by flying or scuba diving because of the pressure changes that occur. Pregnancy is another common cause of sinus infection. This is because there are hormonal changes that can cause swelling of the nasal passages and this can result in a sinus infection. Women who use birth control pills, which copy the state of pregnancy by hormone changes, can also experience this problem. Those who are asthma suffers are also at risk for an increased number of sinus issues. Developing a basis for this composition on Nose Sinus was a lengthy task. It took lots of patience and hard work to develop.

Quote:Treatment for sinus infection is usually the same as most other types of infection. Antibiotics will be prescribed to reduce the infection. As well other medications may be suggested, like nasal sprays, to increase the comfort of the sinusitis sufferer. Sinuses are basically interesting parts of our day-to-day life. It is only that sometimes, we are not aware of this fact!

Most People Do Not Know the Purpose of the Sinuses
They are there to protect the skull. They make it feel lighter as well as to give the voice the ability to echo inside of it. There are four pairs of sinuses that connect the nostrils to the nasal passages. If germs get into any of them it will cause a sinus infection. One way to think of a sinus infection is that it is an inflammation of the lining of the sinuses. If all of them are inflamed then it is called pansinusitis.

One Nasal Irrigation System Which is Widely Used in the U.S
Is the Neti Pot. Through the use of a small, strange-looking ceramic teapot, all the little nooks and crannies that you have in your sinuses are cleared of mucus. This nasal cleansing technique may feel strange when executed, but this natural method of medical treatment may be more effective than medication. This is because it mechanically flushes out the main cause of sinusitis that sticks into the nasal cavities - the mucus.

You are one of those millions of people suffering from chronic sinusitis, follow these simple steps to ease the symptoms of your sinusitis: Smile

Remember, it is still advisable that you consult your family doctor, or an ear, nose, and throat specialist before trying this nasal irrigation treatment on your own. It is rather inviting to go on writing on Neti Pot. however as there is a limitation to the number of words to be written, we have confined ourselves to this. However, do enjoy yourself reading it.

Step Two: Nasal Cleansing on the First Nostril
Tilt your head to one side at about a 45-degree angle, and place the spout of the Neti Pot into your raised nostril. Gently pour the saline solution into that nostril. Bear in mind to breathe through your mouth as the fluid flows in your upper nostril and out your lower nostril.

Why does it need to be lukewarm water with salt? Using regular water can be irritating to your sinuses. If you use cold water, it may make you feel that you are drowning in a pool. Saline solution, or saltwater, on the other hand, is the natural solution for the mucus membranes. The simple truth is that germs need water to thrive, but salt strips the germs of water, so the saltwater is the cleanest solution you can use for the neti pot. Writing is something that has to be done when one is in the mood to write. So when we got in the mood to write about Nasal Irrigation, nothing could stop us from writing!

You experience nasal irritation or stinging, or any other mild side effects, try to do the following modifications to minimize those unwanted reactions: - reduce the amount of salt in the solution - adjust the frequency of use - change the temperature of the water Isn't it amazing how much information can be transferred through a single page? So much stands to gain, and to lose about Nasal Irrigation through a single page. :o.

Step Three: Nasal Cleansing on the Second Nostril
Blow your nose to empty it of any remaining saline solution. Refill your Neti Pot and repeat the process described on Step Two for your other nostril. Ignorance is bliss, is it? Isn't it better to learn more than not to know about something like Neti Pot. So we have produced this article so that you can learn more about it!

Step One: Prepare the Saline Solution
Mix about one pint (or 16 ounces) of lukewarm water with one teaspoon of salt. Then fill the Neti Pot with the saline solution. For some people, putting half a teaspoon of baking soda into the solution makes it gentler on the nose. A rolling stone gathers no moss. So if I just go on writing, and you don't understand, then it is of no use of me writing about Sinus Problems! Whatever written should be understandable by the reader. Wink
  • Since the solution is going to flow through your nasal cavity, it is possible that the fluid is going to run into your throat.
  • Just in case this happens, simply spit it out.
