Contributory and exacerbating roles of gaseous ammonia and organic dust in the etiology of atrophic rhinitis. (1/191)

Pigs reared commercially indoors are exposed to air heavily contaminated with particulate and gaseous pollutants. Epidemiological surveys have shown an association between the levels of these pollutants and the severity of lesions associated with the upper respiratory tract disease of swine atrophic rhinitis. This study investigated the role of aerial pollutants in the etiology of atrophic rhinitis induced by Pasteurella multocida. Forty, 1-week-old Large White piglets were weaned and divided into eight groups designated A to H. The groups were housed in Rochester exposure chambers and continuously exposed to the following pollutants: ovalbumin (groups A and B), ammonia (groups C and D), ovalbumin plus ammonia (groups E and F), and unpolluted air (groups G and H). The concentrations of pollutants used were 20 mg m-3 total mass and 5 mg m-3 respirable mass for ovalbumin dust and 50 ppm for ammonia. One week after exposure commenced, the pigs in groups A, C, E, and G were infected with P. multocida type D by intranasal inoculation. After 4 weeks of exposure to pollutants, the pigs were killed and the extent of turbinate atrophy was assessed with a morphometric index (MI). Control pigs kept in clean air and not inoculated with P. multocida (group H) had normal turbinate morphology with a mean MI of 41.12% (standard deviation [SD], +/- 1. 59%). In contrast, exposure to pollutants in the absence of P. multocida (groups B, D, and F) induced mild turbinate atrophy with mean MIs of 49.65% (SD, +/-1.96%), 51.04% (SD, +/-2.06%), and 49.88% (SD, +/-3.51%), respectively. A similar level of atrophy was also evoked by inoculation with P. multocida in the absence of pollutants (group G), giving a mean MI of 50.77% (SD, +/-2.07%). However, when P. multocida inoculation was combined with pollutant exposure (groups A, C, and E) moderate to severe turbinate atrophy occurred with mean MIs of 64.93% (SD, +/-4.64%), 59.18% (SD, +/-2.79%), and 73.30% (SD, +/-3.19%), respectively. The severity of atrophy was greatest in pigs exposed simultaneously to dust and ammonia. At the end of the exposure period, higher numbers of P. multocida bacteria were isolated from the tonsils than from the nasal membrane, per gram of tissue. The severity of turbinate atrophy in inoculated pigs was proportional to the number of P. multocida bacteria isolated from tonsils (r2 = 0.909, P < 0.05) and nasal membrane (r2 = 0.628, P < 0.05). These findings indicate that aerial pollutants contribute to the severity of lesions associated with atrophic rhinitis by facilitating colonization of the pig's upper respiratory tract by P. multocida and also by directly evoking mild atrophy.  (+info)

Anatomical structure and surface epithelial distribution in the nasal cavity of the common cotton-eared marmoset (Callithrix jacchus). (2/191)

To validate use of the common cotton-eared marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) in inhalation toxicity studies, its nasal morphology was examined. The nasal turbinates each consisted of one maxilloturbinate and one ethmoturbinate: these were more planar in structure than the comparable structures of rodents or dogs. The nasal cavity epithelia comprised squamous epithelium (SE), nasal transitional epithelium (NTE), respiratory epithelium (RE) and olfactory epithelium (OE), listed in order of occurrence from anterior to posterior positions. NTE was distributed as a narrow band lying between SE and RE. OE was limited to the dorsal part of the cavity, which was structurally similar to that of the macaque or man. Overall, this study revealed structural the similarity of the whole nasal cavity in the marmoset to that of macaques or humans. Prediction of nasal cavity changes in man based on extrapolation from experimentally induced changes in the common marmoset therefore seems likely to be feasible, making it a useful animal model for inhalation studies.  (+info)

Chronic inhalation carcinogenicity study of commercial hexane solvent in F-344 rats and B6C3F1 mice. (3/191)

The carcinogenic and chronic toxicity potential of commercial hexane solvent was evaluated in F-344 rats and B6C3F1 mice (50/sex/concentration/species) exposed by inhalation for 6 h/day, 5 days/week for 2 years. Target hexane vapor concentrations were 0, 900, 3000, and 9000 ppm. There were no significant differences in survivorship between control and hexane-exposed groups, and clinical observations were generally unremarkable. Small, but statistically significant decreases in body weight gain were seen in rats of both sexes in the mid- and high-exposure groups and in high-expsoure female mice. The only noteworthy histopathological finding in rats was epithelial cell hyperplasia in the nasoturbinates and larynx of exposed groups. This response was judged to be indicative of upper respiratory tract tissue irritation. No significant differences in tumor incidence between control and hexane-exposed rats were found. In mice, uterine tissue from the high-exposure females exhibited a significant decrease in the severity of cystic endometrial hyperplasia compared to controls. An increase in the combined incidence of hepatocellular adenomas and carcinomas was observed in high-exposure female mice. The incidence of liver tumors was not increased in the mid- or low-exposure female mice or in male mice exposed to hexane. An increased incidence of pituitary adenomas was observed in female, but not male mice. This finding was not believed to have been treatment-related because the incidence in the control group was unusually low, and the incidence in exposed groups was not dose-related and was within the historical control range. No other neoplastic changes judged to be treatment-related were observed in tissues from male or female mice. In conclusion, chronic exposure to commercial hexane solvent at concentrations up to 9000 ppm was not carcinogenic to F-344 rats or to male B6C3F1 mice, but did result in an increased incidence of liver tumors in female mice.  (+info)

Oxidative stress in cells infected with bovine viral diarrhoea virus: a crucial step in the induction of apoptosis. (4/191)

Bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) belongs to the genus Pestivirus of the family Flaviviridae. Both a noncytopathic (ncp) and an antigenically related cytopathic (cp) BVDV can be isolated from persistently infected animals suffering from mucosal disease. In every case studied so far, the genomic changes leading to the cp biotype correlate with the production of the NS3 nonstructural protein, which, in the ncp biotype, is present in its uncleaved form, NS23. This report shows that, in contrast to ncp BVDV, the cp biotype induces apoptosis in cultured embryonic bovine turbinate cells. Early in the process of apoptosis, cells show a rise in the intracellular level of reactive oxygen species, which is indicative of oxidative stress. This precedes two hallmarks of apoptosis, caspase activation as shown by cleavage of the caspase substrate poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase, and DNA fragmentation. Cells were protected from apoptosis only by certain antioxidants (butylated hydroxyanisole and ebselen), whereas others (N-acetylcysteine, pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate, lipoic acid, dihydrolipoic acid and tiron) turned out to be ineffective. Antioxidants that protected cells from apoptosis prevented oxidative stress but failed to block virus growth. These observations suggest that oxidative stress, which occurs early in the interaction between cp BVDV and its host cell, may be a crucial event in the sequence leading to apoptotic cell death. Hence, apoptosis is not required for the multiplication of the cp biotype of BVDV.  (+info)

Glucocorticosteroids inhibit mRNA expression for eotaxin, eotaxin-2, and monocyte-chemotactic protein-4 in human airway inflammation with eosinophilia. (5/191)

How eosinophils are preferentially recruited to inflammatory sites remains elusive, but increasing evidence suggests that chemokines that bind to the CCR3 participate in this process. In this study, we investigated the transcript levels and chemotactic activity of CCR3-binding chemokines in nasal polyps, a disorder often showing prominent eosinophilia. We found that mRNA expression for eotaxin, eotaxin-2, and monocyte-chemotactic protein-4 was significantly increased in nasal polyps compared with turbinate mucosa from the same patients, or histologically normal nasal mucosa from control subjects. Interestingly, the novel CCR3-specific chemokine, eotaxin-2, showed the highest transcript levels. Consistent with these mRNA data, polyp tissue fluid exhibited strong chemotactic activity for eosinophils that was significantly inhibited by a blocking Ab against CCR3. When patients were treated systemically with glucocorticosteroids, the mRNA levels in the polyps were reduced to that found in turbinate mucosa for all chemokines. Together, these findings suggested an important role for CCR3-binding chemokines in eosinophil recruitment to nasal polyps. Such chemokines, therefore, most likely contribute significantly in the pathogenesis of eosinophil-related disorders; and the reduced chemokine expression observed after steroid treatment might reflect, at least in part, how steroids inhibit tissue accumulation of eosinophils.  (+info)

Inflammatory and epithelial responses during the development of ozone-induced mucous cell metaplasia in the nasal epithelium of rats. (6/191)

Rats repeatedly exposed to high ambient concentrations of ozone develop mucous cell metaplasia (MCM) in the nasal transitional epithelium (NTE). The present study was designed to determine the temporal relationships of ozone-induced inflammatory and epithelial responses and their correlation with subsequent MCM in the NTE of rats. Male F344/N rats were exposed to 0.5 ppm ozone, 8 h/day for 1, 2, or 3 days. Two h prior to sacrifice, all the rats were injected intraperitoneally with 5'-bromo-2-deoxyuridine (BrdU) to label epithelial cells undergoing DNA synthesis. Rats exposed to ozone for 1 or 2 days were killed 2 h after the exposure. Rats exposed to ozone for 3 days were killed 2 h or 1, 2, or 4 days after the exposure. Control rats were killed after a 7-day exposure to filtered air. One nasal passage from the anterior nasal cavity of each rat was fixed and processed for light microscopy to morphometrically determine the numeric densities of epithelial cells, neutrophils, and mucous cells, and the amount of intraepithelial mucosubstances in the NTE. The maxilloturbinate from the other nasal passage was processed for analysis of an airway mucin-specific gene (i.e., rMuc-5AC mRNA). Acute ozone exposure induced a rapid increase in rMuc-5AC mRNA levels prior to the onset of MCM, and the increased levels of rMuc-5AC mRNA persisted with MCM. Neutrophilic inflammation coincided with epithelial DNA synthesis and upregulation of rMuc-5AC, but was resolved when MCM first appeared in the NTE. The results of the present study suggest that upregulation of mucin mRNA by acute ozone exposure may be associated with the concurrent neutrophilic inflammation and epithelial hyperplasia in the NTE. Ozone-induced MCM may be dependent on these important pre-metaplastic responses (i.e., mucin mRNA upregulation, neutrophilic inflammation, and epithelial proliferation).  (+info)

Polyglutamylation and polyglycylation of alpha- and beta-tubulins during in vitro ciliated cell differentiation of human respiratory epithelial cells. (7/191)

Tubulins are the major proteins within centriolar and axonemal structures. In all cell types studied so far, numerous alpha- and beta-tubulin isoforms are generated both by expression of a multigenic family and various post-translational modifications. We have developed a primary culture of human nasal epithelial cells where the ciliated cell differentiation process has been observed and quantified. We have used this system to study several properties concerning polyglutamylation and polyglycylation of tubulin. GT335, a monoclonal antibody directed against glutamylated tubulins, stained the centriole/basal bodies and the axonemes of ciliated cells, and the centrioles of non-ciliated cells. By contrast, axonemal but not centriolar tubulins were polyglycylated. Several polyglutamylated and polyglycylated tubulin isotypes were detected by two-dimensional electrophoresis, using GT335 and a specific monoclonal antibody (TAP952) directed against short polyglycyl chains. Immunoelectron microscopy experiments revealed that polyglycylation only affected axonemal tubulin. Using the same technical approach, polyglutamylation was shown to be an early event in the centriole assembly process, as gold particles were detected in fibrogranular material corresponding to the first cytoplasmic structures involved in centriologenesis. In a functional assay, GT335 and TAP952 had a dose-dependent inhibitory effect on ciliary beat frequency. TAP952 had only a weak effect while GT335 treatment led to a total arrest of beating. These results strongly suggest that in human ciliated epithelial cells, tubulin polyglycylation has only a structural role in cilia axonemes, while polyglutamylation may have a function both in centriole assembly and in cilia activity.  (+info)

Analysis of ciliary beat pattern and beat frequency using digital high speed imaging: comparison with the photomultiplier and photodiode methods. (8/191)

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship of the power and recovery stroke of respiratory cilia using digital high speed video imaging. Beat frequency measurements made using digital high speed video were also compared with those obtained using the photomultiplier and modified photodiode techniques. METHOD: Ciliated epithelium was obtained by brushing the inferior nasal turbinate of 20 healthy subjects. Ciliated edges were observed by microscopy and the deviation of cilia during their recovery stroke relative to the path travelled during their power stroke was measured. Beat frequency measurements made by digital high speed video analysis were compared with those obtained using the photomultiplier and modified photodiode. RESULTS: Cilia were found to beat with a forward power stroke and a backward recovery stroke within the same plane. The mean angular deviation of the cilia during the recovery stroke from the plane of the forward power stroke was only 3.6 degrees (95% CI 3.1 to 4.1). There was a significant difference in beat frequency measurement between the digital high speed video (13.2 Hz (95% CI 11.8 to 14.6)) and both photomultiplier (12.0 Hz (95% CI 10.8 to 13.1), p = 0.01) and photodiode (11.2 Hz (95% CI 9.9 to 12.5), p<0.001) techniques. The Bland-Altman limits of agreement for the digital high speed video were -2.75 to 5.15 Hz with the photomultiplier and -2.30 to 6.06 Hz with the photodiode. CONCLUSION: Respiratory cilia beat forwards and backwards within the same plane without a classical sideways recovery sweep. Digital high speed video imaging allows both ciliary beat frequency and beat pattern to be evaluated.  (+info)

MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Your nasal turbinates are structures that stick out from the inside walls of your nose. Theyre made of bone covered by a thin layer of soft tissue called nasal mucosa. The purpose of the turbinates is to humidify warm and filter air as it passes through your nose. One of your turbinates may grow too large, usually the lowest one. If this happens, airflow through your nose may be blocked. The turbinate may be so swollen that it touches your septum, which is the thin wall dividing your nose into right and left sides. If medications dont relieve your symptoms, a procedure called A Nasal Turbinate Reduction may be done to reduce the size of the swollen turbinate. During the procedure, the surgeon will make a small incision in the mucosa on the turbinate. A tool such as a microdebrider will be used to remove soft tissue , bone, or both from the turbinate. In most cases, the surgeon will only remove enough tissue to improve airflow. The rest of the turbinate will remain. To
The turbinates are structures made of thin bone covered by spongy mucous membranes in the nasal cavities. There are three on each side and are called the superior, middle and inferior turbinates. The turbinates have three main functions. They warm the air we breathe, humidify this air as it passes through the nose, and the mucous layer of the turbinates assist in filtering particles such as dust and pollen.. The turbinates, particularly the inferior, can block breathing when they are enlarged. The inferior turbinates are most commonly enlarged by swelling of the mucous membranes caused by allergies. This enlargement is due to increased blood flow into the tissue which then are congested. The middle turbinates can be enlarged if an air bubble develops inside the bone, a condition called concha bullosa. Concha bullosa of the middle turbinates may narrow the space through which the sinuses drain, the ostiomeatal complex, and hence can contribute to sinusitis.. Turbinate enlargement can be treated ...
Objective: To determine the efficacy of inferior turbinate coblation for the treatment of nasal obstruction. Methods: Twenty patients awaiting submucosal diathermy to the inferior turbinates were recruited into the study. All underwent inferior turbinate coblation. Pre-operative and post-operative nasal function was investigated using posterior rhinomanometry and subjective symptom scales. Results: There was no significant increase in nasal conductance two weeks after inferior turbinate coblation (p = 0.159). However, three months after inferior turbinate coblation, median nasal conductance had increased significantly, from 203 to 324 cm3/s (p = 0.004). The median increase in nasal conductance was 73 cm3/s or 43.5 per cent. Post-operative visual analogue patients reported post-operative visual analogue scales scores for nasal obstruction decreased significantly, both two weeks (p = 0.006) and three months after inferior turbinate coblation (p = 0.001) when compared to Pre-operative values. ...

Turbinate hypertrophy, inferior turbinate hypertrophy, and nasal turbinate hypertrophy are all descriptions of a similar condition where the tissue on the lateral (outside) walls of the nose are too large, causing nasal obstruction. Treatment may involve medications, allergy therapy and surgery.
With some of the other procedures, a portion of the turbinate is removed. It is important that enough of the turbinate be left intact so that the turbinate can warm and humidify the air that is flowing through the nose. A procedure called submucosal resection is a common technique used to treat enlarged turbinates. With this procedure, the lining of the turbinate is left intact, but the stuffing from the inside of the turbinate is removed. As the turbinate heals, it will be much smaller than before surgery. Sometimes, this resection can be performed with a device called a microdebrider. This device allows the surgeon to remove the stuffing through a small opening in the turbinate. In some instances, more of the turbinate is removed ...
Patients are typically apprised of the procedure and given perioperative instructions prior to the procedure. Informed consent is obtained for all patients and includes a discussion of the risks and benefits of procedure, including the rare risk of smell disturbance as well as the infrequent risks of postoperative crusting, bleeding and/or pain.. The coblation inferior turbinate reduction procedure is most commonly performed in the outpatient setting. In patients who have isolated turbinate hypertrophy as a cause of their nasal obstruction (or minimally impacting nasal septal deviation) we prefer to perform this procedure in the outpatient setting prior to any adjunctive sleep apnea procedures. This allows patients to maintain a patent nasal airway in the immediate postoperative period after other surgical procedures for OSA. However, the procedure can be performed simultaneously with nasal septoplasty and/or other adjunctive surgical procedures for OSA in the operating room setting provided the ...
|i|Back ground and objectives: |/i|Middle turbinate position, bulk, and shape play a significant role in the determination of drainage and ventilation at the middle meatus. The middle turbinate constitutes the corner stone for the performance of drainage as well as ventilation functions at the area of ostiomeatal complex and as one of major aims of middle meatal endoscopic surgery is providing the sufficient drainage and ventilation at the level of this complex thus the middle turbinate should be assessed properly before the surgery regarding its position, size, and shape which may predispose for sinusitis via the obliteration of ostiomeatal complex. In addition among the normal middle turbinate which may lateralize post-operatively and subsequently result in the re-obstruction of the drainage and ventilation at the middle meatal area therefore for the purpose of maintenance of sufficient drainage and ventilation after middle meatal endoscopic surgery it is suggested to interfere with the normal middle
Dr. Dutton created the below infographic on everything you need to know about turbinate surgery. Turbinates are thin bones covered with thin tissue on the interior wall of the nose. Patients tend to undergo turbinate surgery because allergies or other nasal problems can cause the turbinates to swell and block airflow. Patients can experience improved breathing, reduced sinus-related snoring, less allergy issues, and less nasal congestion and drainage. For more information on turbinate surgery, or to schedule a consultation, please contact Dr. Dutton ...

The trial seeks to provide evidence that the treatment of inferior turbinates in patients with continued symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, sleep related breathing disorder, snoring, disturbed sleeping, open mouth breathing, and upper airway resistance syndrome after tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy will improve these symptoms and should be included in the treatment paradigm for treatment of sleep related breathing disorders in infants, children, and adolescents. ...
The inferior nasal concha (inferior turbinated bone) is one of the turbinates in the nose. It extends horizontally along the lateral wall of the nasal cavity and consists of a lamina of spongy bone, curled upon itself like a scroll. Each inferior nasal concha is considered a facial pair of bones since they arise from the maxillae bones and projects horizontally into the nasal cavity. They are also termed inferior nasal turbinates because they function similar to that of a turbine. As the air passes through the turbinates, the air is churned against these mucosa-lined bones in order to receive warmth, moisture and cleansing. Superior to inferior nasal concha are the middle nasal concha and superior nasal concha which arise from the cranial portion of the skull. Hence, these two are considered as a part of the cranial bones.. It has two surfaces, two borders, and two extremities. ...

Question - Bilateral nasal turbinate hypertrophy, nasal septum deviation. Could these cause headaches?. Ask a Doctor about diagnosis, treatment and medication for Concha bullosa, Ask an ENT Specialist
Concha bullosa or conchal pneumatization is the most common anatomic variation of ostiomeatal complex region that is generally seen in the middle turbinate, but also rarely in the superior and inferior turbinate. Pneumatization of the middle turbinate may originate from the frontal recess, anterior ethmoids, or directly from the middle meatus. Concha bullosa is usually asymptomatic but sometimes nasal obstruction, headache, postnasal discharge, and hyposmia can be seen. Pyocele occurs when concha bullosa becomes infected. In case of a pyocele, middle turbinate may become expanded and occupy the surrounding structures. If not treated may lead intracranial and orbital complications. Concha bullosa pyocele is rarely seen. We report a case of massive concha bullosa pyocele which has caused nasal obstruction and headache for two years. ...
Nasal turbinate hypertrophy is often a result of chronic untreated allergies that lead to nasal congestion and symptoms of nasal airway obstruction.

Woodruff[who?] in 1949 discovered plexus of prominent blood vessels lying inferior to posterior end of inferior turbinate. Woodruffs area is present under the posterior end of inferior turbinate on the lateral nasal wall which is also called nasopharyngeal plexus. The sphenopalatine and posterior pharyngeal arteries anastamoses at the posterior end of inferior turbinate. Sphenopalatine artery enter the nasal cavity through the sphenopatine foramen located on lateral nasal wall within superior meatus usually between the middle turbinate and posterior horizontal end of the lamella of the superior turbinate. Generally this is just about the posterior end of the horizontal lamella of the middle turbinate and just posterior to the ethmoidal crest of the perpendicular plate of the palatine bone. Posterior epistaxis occur primarily in old adult. Only about 5-10% of bleeding which occurs is from woodruffs area from the branches of internal maxillary artery including: Posterior nasal, Spheno-palatine ...

The nasal cycle is the often unnoticed alternating partial congestion and decongestion of the nasal cavities in humans and other animals. It is a physiological congestion of the nasal concha, also called the nasal turbinate, due to selective activation of one half of the autonomic nervous system by the hypothalamus. It should not be confused with pathological nasal congestion. The nasal cycle was studied and discussed in the ancient yoga literature of pranayama. In the modern western literature, it was first described by the German physician Richard Kayser in 1895. In 1927 Heetderks spoke about the alternating turgescence of the inferior turbinates in 80% of a normal population. The cycle is the result of alternating congestion and decongestion of the nasal conchae or turbinates, predominantly the inferior turbinates, which are by far the largest of the turbinates in each nasal fossa. Turbinates consist of bony projections covered by erectile tissue, much like the tissues of the penis and ...

The turbinates are thin, bony plates inside your nose. Allergies or a lengthy cold can irritate them and cause them to swell, or enlarge. The swelling makes it hard for you to breathe. Another cause of the swelling is overuse of decongestant nasal sprays.. Sometimes it is not clear why turbinates swell. In most cases, the swelling does not cause pain. But it can feel like an object is blocking one side of your nose.. Your doctor may do tests to be sure about what is causing the problem. He or she may prescribe a steroid spray to reduce swelling. Your doctor may advise you to stop using over-the-counter nasal sprays.. If the turbinate swelling does not go down, you may need surgery to open your nasal passage.. ...

Discussion. CB is a very common variation in normal population. CB is usually seen in the middle turbinate (Unlu et al, 1994; Bolger et al, 1991). There are few theories for its occurrence: (1) Expansion of sinus pneumatization into the turbinate during intrauterine period (Yang et al, 2008), (2) Fusion abnormality during intrauterine development, (3) Conchal bone microfractures during late puberty causing nasal mucosal invagination expanding to bullosa cavity and eventual CB development (Peric et al, 2010; Dogru et al, 1999).. In the present study, we investigated the presence of CB in patients with AR. CB was present in55.5% of patients with AR. It was either unilateral (28%) or bilateral (72%). In CB cases, there was only middle turbinate pneumatization. There was no correlation between side of the CB (unilateral or bilateral) and gender and age.. Our results showed that there is a high rate coexistence of 55.5% between AR and CB. In Unlu et als (1994) and Bolger et als studies (1991), the ...

I had the turbinate reduction towards the end of October. Were now about mid November, and its mostly healed. Its kind of funny. You dont think about the issue of scabs going into it. Or at least, I didnt. I just thought about the inflammation being gone, and actually being able to breathe through my nose. And then I thought about needles being inserted into my nose. But I didnt think about the scabs.. You do get them. And theyre kinda big, all things considered. The first couple weeks, your nose feels dry. The saline solution nasal spray is a must. I had one I kept at work and another I carried in my bag. Use them freely, should you ever be in this situation. Because if your nose gets too dry, it will hurt. And the injured area will ooze. And it will crust. And that will be unpleasant, too. Do, however, keep kleenex around. Youll need it about two minutes after using the saline spray, because your nose just starts to drip.. Ive stopped using the saline. Doesnt seem necessary any ...

Inferior turbinates can become enlarged and block breathing through the nose. Patients who do not respond to medications can benefit from surgery.
During rhinoplasty, a turbinate reduction is frequently performed at the same time. The turbinates are structures that moisten the air as it passes through the nose. They can also become quite swollen during an allergy attack and lead to significant congestion, post nasal drip and obstruction. With inferior turbinate reduction, the lateral aspect and bone of the turbinate is removed leaving the medial mucus producing size. This way, the turbinate can still function but will not be able to swell as much with allergies. It is important not to over-resect the turbinates as they are critical to preventing a dry nose and creating turbulent flow of air in the nose to give the air time to be warmed and humidified. Dr. Funk is a rhinoplasty expert in Houston, TX ...

N2 - The effects of cocaine on the contractile response of isolated human nasal mucosal blood vessels to field stimulation and methoxamine were investigated. Results showed that cocaine antagonized methoxamine and inhibited field stimulation. The drug increased resting tension in human nasal mucosa in vitro through direct actions and potentiated mucosal contractions by norepinephrine and epinephrine. The study indicated that high concentrations of cocaine may actually antagonize α-adrenoceptors, but these concentrations are not necessary in eliciting desired degrees of vasoconstriction in nasal blood vessels while being applied as a local anesthetic..

Background: To date there is little information on the inflammatory profiles of patients suffering from persistent (PER) and intermittent allergic rhinitis (IAR). Also, it is not clear whether differences exist in eosinophilic inflammation and/or T-helper cell sub-populations and their markers. The aim of this study was to primarily evaluate the inflammatory profiles of patients with moderate/severe PER and IAR.. Methods: Inferior nasal turbinate tissue was obtained from 12 PER, 12 IAR and 12 nonallergic nonrhinitic (control) patients, and symptoms (visual analogue scales, VAS) and impairment of life was monitored. All tissues were assessed for eosinophil and mast cell numbers by immunohistochemistry; IL-5, ECP and IgE concentrations by immunoassay; mRNA for transcription factors GATA-3, T-bet, FOXP3 and RORc by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction; and IgE-induced release of LTC4/D4/E4 and PGD2in vitro.. Results: Eosinophils and mast cells were significantly increased in patients ...
Atrophic rhinitis usually occurs in late middle-aged to elderly patients. The cause of atrophic rhinitis is unknown, with the leading theory being age-related mucosal atrophy, sometimes complicated by secondary bacterial infection. Primary atrophic rhinitis resembles the rhinitis associated with Sjogrens syndrome or previous nasal surgery, including extensive turbinectomy. Examination generally reveals a patent nasal airway with atrophic, erythematous turbinates, despite the symptoms of congestion.. Some subjects with atrophic rhinitis report nasal congestion, crusting of the nasal airway, and a bad smell (ozena). Ozena is associated with bacterial overgrowth of the mucosa, particularly Klebseilla ozaenae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The appearance of ozena may resemble chronic granulomatous disease, such as Wegeners granulomatosis or sarcoidosis, or the effects of previous local irradiation. The prevalence of ozena is variable, with a greater occurrence in select geographic areas, such as ...
The mast cell is a crucial effector cell in allergic rhinitis and other inflammatory diseases. During the acute allergic reaction preformed mediators such as histamine, but also de novo produced mediators such as leukotrienes (LTC4/D4/E4) and prostaglandins (PGD2) are released. Mast cells represent targets for therapeutic intervention, and thus a human ex-vivo model to stimulate mast cells taken from mucosal sites would be instrumental for drug intervention studies. We have aimed to activate mast cells within ex-vivo human nasal tissue by IgE/anti-IgE specific (ε chain specific) stimulations and in this respect to test the usability of nasal polyps versus inferior turbinates Biopsy samples were collected from patients with nasal polyps and inferior turbinates from patients who underwent sinus or septal surgery. Tissue fragments were primed with IgE 1 μg/ml for 60 minutes and then stimulated for 30 minutes with tissue culture medium (negative control), anti-IgE 10 μg/ml, anti-IgE 30 μg/ml and
Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) is a superfamily of enzymes that promote inflammation by releasing arachidonic acid for the synthesis of eicosanoids and lysophospholipid for the synthesis of platelet-activating factor (PAF). On the other hand, several members of the PLA2 family (VIIA, VIIB, VIIIA and VIIIB) are able to degrade PAF and are therefore potentially important anti-inflammatory enzymes. The precise roles of the different PLA2 enzymes in airways inflammation are not known and the gene expression of the different PLA2s in the human nasal mucosa has not previously been examined. Using reversed transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) techniques, this thesis investigated (i) the occurrence of mRNAs for different PLA2 types in the nasal mucosa of healthy subjects; (ii) the effects of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and interferon-γ (IFN-γ) on the gene expression of different PLA2s in human nasal epithelial cells (RPMI 2650); (iii) the effects of IFN-γ and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) on ...

DISCUSSION. The purpose of this retrospective study was to investigate the effect of RME treatment on patients presenting with nasal septal deviation. RME alone was conducted in these patients for the treatment of transverse maxillary deficiency, whereby NSD was discovered as an incidental finding on their CBCT scans prior to treatment. There is no gold standard test to diagnose septal deviation17 and different protocols for measuring septal deviation have been identified in the literature. The degree of tortuosity measurement was used in this study to compare the length of the curve of the deviated septum to the length of an ideal straight septum. This measurement solely measured the nasal septum in isolation and did not classify or include other confounding nasal pathology that could be the reason for septal deviation, such as turbinate hypertrophy or mucosal swelling. Therefore, this measurement method was well suited to the objective of our study. Landmark identification in OsiriX and NSD ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Surface-functionalized nanoparticles for targeted gene delivery across nasal respiratory epithelium. AU - Sundaram, Sneha. AU - Roy, Shyamal K. AU - Ambati, Balamurali K.. AU - Kompella, Uday B.. PY - 2009/11/5. Y1 - 2009/11/5.

The uptake and permeability of polystyrene nanoparticles (PS-NPs; Fluo-Spheres) was evaluated across the various regions of the bovine nasal epithelia following conjugation with deslorelin and transferrin. Uptake and transport of PS-NPs, deslorelin-PS-NPs, and transferrin-PS-NPs exhibited regional differences in the order: inferior turbinate posterior (ITP) , medium turbinate posterior (MTP) , medium turbinate anterior (MTA). Uptake and transport also exhibited directionality and temperature dependence in these tissues. Further, uptake as well as transport of functionalized ...
YOGA AND SINUSITIS Dr. P.B. Rajput. There are about a dozen air sinuses in the human skull. Most of these are so placed that they drain out in the nasal cavity by gravity only. The large maxillary sinus has disadvantage; its ostium is small and is placed in such a place that any defect in nasal cavity (e.g. defects in mucosal lining, middle turbinate or nasal septum) will lead to closure. Thus the maxillary sinus for its normal functioning requires two things (1) good ventilation and (2) good blood supply to maintain cilliary function. So it is that this maxillary sinus in return depends on healthily maintaining nasal cavity. Any defect in the nasal cavity, either due to deviated nasal septum, hypertrophy of middle turbinate or mucosal collection will lead to proper ventilation of the nasal cavity which in turn will lead to maxillary ostium. Repeatedly poor drainage will leas to change of ciliated epithelium pattern. Mucosal lining of nasal and paranasal sinuses are under the supreme control of ...
An immunohistochemical study of the nasal mucosa was done in pediatric patients attending an otorhinolaringology (ORL) clinic. The goal was a comparison between vascular innervation in patients with or without symptoms of chronic rhinitis. All patients had an indication for tonsillectomy prior to their inclusion in this study. Samples were obtained under general anesthesia at the time of programmed surgery and fixed in a paraformaldehyde-picric acid mixture. Cryostat sections were immunostained for the following neuronal markers: protein-gene product 9.5 (PGP), calcitonin gene- related peptide (CGRP), substance P (SP), and C-terminal peptide of neuropeptide Y (CPON). The following classes of vessels were identified: arteries, sinusoids, veins, and arteriovenous anastomoses (AVAs). As shown by immunostaining with the general neuronal marker PGP, each vessel type had a characteristic innervation pattern, differing in the amount of fibers and their distribution within the adventitial and muscle ...

Chondrosarcoma are a relatively rare neoplasia observed in cattle. The disease involves neoplastic changes to chondrocytes involved with cartilage growth, maintenance and remodeling of cartilage. In abattoir surveys, the frequency of malignant or benign cartilaginous neoplasms in cattle has been found to be less than 1% of all neoplasms[1]. The cause of this disease is unknown but likely to involve genetics. Chondrosarcoma usually affect axial bones rather than appendicular ones, and flat bones are involved more often than long bones. Chondrosarcoma have been commonly reported in the scapula of cattle with no apparent breed predilection[2]. Other sites include the nasal turbinates[3] and extraskeletal sites such as the mesenchyme[4]. Lameness is usually the first presenting clinical sign, and as the condition worsens, obvious swelling around the tumour becomes apparent. In tumours involving the nasal turbinates, a nasal discharge and dyspnea may be apparent. Diagnosis can only be made after ...
The quandary is whether surgical intervention to resolve nasal obstruction will actually work if the same patient also has bad allergies.
Septoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to correct nasal septum deviation. In case of nasal septum deviation the airflow is obstructed in one half of the nasal cavity.
We will carefully examine your nose using a lighted scope and may use a CT scan or MRI in order to diagnose your nasal obstruction. The first step in treating nasal obstructions is getting the symptoms under control. Medications or nasal steroid sprays are often helpful in reducing inflammation of the nose and turbinates and providing immediate, short-term relief. An effective long-term solution may require surgery particularly if the issue involves a deviated septum, turbinates or nasal polyps. Newer surgical techniques include shrinking the turbinates by using radiofrequency energy or a small tissue-shaving device..

Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) is a procedure for improving the shape and the functional aspect of the nose. The shape of the nose is primarily dependent on genetics and racial background. Most patients seeking rhinoplasty are looking for a nasal shape which is proportional to their face. It is important, however, for the patient to have realistic expectations and realize the final shape of the nose is limited by anatomy and skin thickness.. It is important to realize when the outside (visible) portion of the nose is altered, it is important to address the inside of the nose as well. Typically, patients have slightly deviated septum (the supporting cartilage in the middle of the nose) and may have enlarged turbinates. The turbinates resemble worms which outline the inside of the nose, across from the septum. They are lined with nasal mucosa and help humidify the air we breathe. Typically these turbinates may become enlarged due to allergies or a significantly deviated septum. If the nasal shape is ...
There are other less commonly talked about issues inside the nose that can affect your ability to breathe. The turbinates are one culprit. These are the humidifiers of the nose, composed of nasal mucosa, and will swell in response to viruses, allergies, and other irritants present in their environment. This is when most people even notice they are there, usually swelling the most at night when you are trying to sleep. The turbinates will make it hard to breathe from the nostril closest to your pillow, which causes many people to toss and turn when they have swelling from colds, allergies, or whatever. When turbinate swelling gets out of control or even results in chronic enlargement, surgery may be required. There are other medical treatments that can help manage the swelling, but the most permanent solution for most patients can be reached through nasal surgery.. Nasal trauma from an injury can have huge repercussions if not treated immediately and thoroughly. A deviated septum is one such side ...
The reason I made the choice to have this surgery was due to a visit with Dr. Setzen 1 1/2 years ago. I scheduled this appointment because of a sharp pain I felt in my sinuses while I was flying. Upon examination my deviated septum was completely blocking one nostril, my sinuses where completely filled with fluid, and I had over 100 polyps. Dr Setzens office was completely equipped to take an MRI on premise which allowed me to receive all the information I needed from one visit to decide and have the surgery. Before going in for surgery I have heard from numerous people how they would not recommend it because they did not see a change since their surgery. Actually, everyone I spoke to that had this surgery said not to. However, my experience with Dr. Setzen made me confident enough to go through with it. After my surgery, recovery was a bit painful at times (which was expected) but very quick. I was back working within a week. Dr. Setzen did not pack my nose with loads of gauze which helped ...

I t is established that adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) produce and secrete cytokines/growth factors that antagonize mucosal injury. However, the exact molecular basis underlying the treatment effects exerted by ADSCs is ill understood, and whether ADSCs cooperate with adipose tissue particles to improve mucosal function in patients with empty nose syndrome (ENS) has not been explored. We investigated the impact of ADSCs on nasal mucosa, the associated mechanisms, and their use in the treatment of patients with ENS. The nasal endoscope and mucociliary clearance assessments were significantly improved (P | 0.05) in patients with (n = 28) and without (n = 2) a rudimentary turbinate that received ADSCs combined with fat granules transplantation. Patients experienced a significant improvement in nasal obstruction and nasal mucociliary clearance after nasal turbinate angioplasty (P | 0.05). H&E staining, Massons staining, and AB-PAS staining confirmed that inflammation was significantly reduced,
Hi Im showing this video how to measure how to verify if you have a broken nose The reason for this is that first broken nose will almost always impair sleep quality breathing and sleep quality Even if you dont realize it and the second reason is that many people have a broken nose And then they happen very very back in time Even when you are toddler and nobody notices it so you may have broken nose Someone may have it and none will notice Not even relatives. Not even the person itself will notice he or she has broken notes So heres how to detect this. Heres how to measure it and just make sure Everything is fine in your own situation just for the matter of giving an example just look straight to my face straight to my nose straight to my upper face and just try to figure out if my nose is broken or not broken nose means always displaced bones displaced Knolls bones The nose has this bridge here which ends at about this point and then its followed by a cartilage which goes deep inside in a ...
One of the earliest descriptions of the treatment of maxillary atresia through surgical procedures in the medical-dental literature is from Angle in 1860. Surgically assisted maxillary expansion (SAME) is a widely used procedure for the treatment of transverse maxillary deformities in individuals who have reached skeletal maturity. The aim of the treatment of such conditions is to increase the transverse dimension of the maxilla through osteotomy of the skeletal sutures and subsequent bone distraction of the maxillae. In individuals with skeletal maturity, SAME has demonstrated good results and its effects are also seen in the nasal cavity, with an improvement in breathing due to the increase in nasal volume.13. The effects of SAME on the nasal cavity and breathing pattern began to be studied around 1886 and are currently the object of numerous studies and divergent opinions. Anatomically, there is an increase in the width of the nasal cavity immediately following maxillary expansion, ...
The medial surface [Fig. 2] is convex, perforated by numerous apertures, and traversed by longitudinal grooves for the lodgement of vessels. The lateral surface is concave [Fig. 3], and forms part of the inferior meatus. Its upper border is thin, irregular, and connected to various bones along the lateral wall of the nasal cavity. It may be divided into three portions: of these, the anterior articulates with the conchal crest of the maxilla; the posterior with the conchal crest of the palatine; the middle portion presents three well-marked processes, which vary much in their size and form. Of these, the anterior or lacrimal process is small and pointed and is situated at the junction of the anterior fourth with the posterior three-fourths of the bone: it articulates, by its apex, with the descending process of the lacrimal bone, and, by its margins, with the groove on the back of the frontal process of the maxilla, and thus assists in forming the canal for the nasolacrimal duct. Behind this ...
This HIPRA UNIVERSITY course was notable for the participation of experts such as Pedro Lopes, founder and managing partner of the company PMS-Serviços Veterinários, Lda, and assistant professor at the Lusófona University (Lisbon, Portugal) and Enric Marco, owner of MARCO VETGRUP S. L. and internationally renowned consultant. HIPRA was represented by local teams from each country. The sessions included the most important theoretical aspects of the disease, such as its clinical presentations, diagnosis and vaccination as the principal method of prevention, with special emphasis on both progressive and non-progressive atrophic rhinitis. It is important to emphasize the role of Bordetella bronchiseptica as the causal agent of non-progressive atrophic rhinitis, that can also act as a predisposing factor for other respiratory disorders. The sessions also included a practical session that focussed on the evaluation of the nasal turbinates for diagnosis of the disease, during which attendees could ...
Objective. Barotrauma is defined as a tissue damage resulting from the direct effect of pressure. It in divers results from the interplay between internal physiologic pressure levels and pressure levels in the water surrounding the diver. During immersions the hyperbaric pressure forces blood and tissue fluids into the air-filled spaces until ambient pressure; similarly expansion of trapped air cause barotrauma. For a diver to avoid barotrauma, the pressure in air-filled space must be equalized in ambient pressure. In this study we evaluated morphological and clinical alteration of nose predisposing barotraumas like: septal deviation, turbinate hypertrophy, chronic sinusitis and nasal allergy ...

Nose surgery such as fixing a deviated septum, making turbinates smaller, or opening the nasal valves assists with the nasal passage and improves breathing and airflow. This will not cure nasal allergies but by making the turbinates smaller, this may lessen the severity of nasal allergy attacks. It is important to understand that nasal surgery is completely different than sinus surgery.. Patients with chronic sinusitis are those that may have repeated sinus infections with facial pain, congestion, and headache. This is different than just not being able to breathe through your nose due to a deviated septum. Sinus infections may occur anywhere from 3-10 times per year and frequently require antibiotics. In between sinus infections there may still be some underlying symptoms of sinusitis. The sinuses are like a room that produces mucus. This mucus then needs to exit this room through a doorway that leads to a hallway. The hallway would be the nasal passage or airway. There mucus can either ...

Five healthy volunteers (four men and one woman, mean age 30 (SD 8) years), of which one was exposed to a cocaine challenge to test vascular reactivity of the nasal mucosa, and a male patient with grade 3 nasal polyposis agreed to participate in the study. In all volunteers the contrast of the nasal mucosa was enough to visualise the microcirculation, which consisted of flowing red blood cells (fig 2⇓; also see the supplementary video recording). High quality images were obtained from the nasal septum and the inferior turbinate. None of the volunteers experienced discomfort or pain during imaging. The plexus, or Kiesselbachs area, was clearly visible in the anterior nasal septum (fig 2). Discrete, circularly arranged capillaries were observed throughout the nasal mucosa in all the healthy volunteers. The capillaries contained a central lumen-like structure (large circular structure in fig 2) and were observed at different locations throughout the nasal septum. The central circular structure ...
Study design and sample collection. Healthy adult subjects were screened for the presence of natural pneumococcal carriage in nasal wash (NW) samples using classical microbiology (7, 34, 75). Subjects not naturally carrying pneumococcus were then inoculated with 80,000 CFU per nostril of 6B type Spn as described previously (7, 75). Development of nasal carriage was monitored using NW samples collected on days 2 and 7 after inoculation. Growth of pneumococcus from NW samples at any time point defined carriage+ volunteers. All subjects then received a 3-day course of amoxicillin and underwent a 4-mm nasal biopsy on day 10 after inoculation. The nasal cavity was first sprayed up to 6 times with 5% lidocaine hydrochloride with 0.5% phenylephrine hydrochloride. Five to 10 minutes later, the infero-medial part of the inferior turbinate, i.e., the point of incision, was injected with up to 1 mL of 2% lidocaine hydrochloride with adrenaline (1:80,000). An incision of approximately 5 mm with a No. 15 ...
In cystic fibrosis the potential difference between interstitial fluid and the surface of respiratory and sweat duct epithelia is abnormally large. This study attempted to confirm this finding and investigate its value for a diagnostic test. With a subcutaneous reference electrode the mean potential difference of the inferior turbinate was -25 mv in 19 patients with cystic fibrosis, which was significantly greater than the difference of -13 mv in 22 normal subjects (p less than 0.02). Of the observations in the patients with cystic fibrosis, 67% were greater than the largest potential difference observed in normal individuals. Potential differences from the lip and forearm were also significantly greater in cystic fibrosis than in normal subjects, but there was considerable overlap. Changes in the electrical properties of nasal epithelium and skin have been confirmed in cystic fibrosis, but these have limited use for diagnosis.. ...
Snoring in children can be due to multiple causes. The most important cause is the enlargement of Adenoids and Tonsils. But there can be other or additional causes of snoring in children such as allergic rhinitis leading to enlarged nasal turbinates, nasal polyps, large tongue and a small mandible. Refer to the figure shown. When do we need to worry for a child who snores?. ...

We generated two adenovirus(Ad5)-based influenza vaccine candidates encoding the wildtype or a codon-optimized hemagglutinin antigen (HA) from the recently emerged swine influenza isolate A/California/04/2009 (H1N1)pdm. After verification of antigen expression, immunogenicity of the vaccine candidates were tested in a mouse model using dose escalations for subcutaneous immunization. Sera of immunized animals were tested in microneutalization and hemagglutination inhibition assays for the presence of HA-specific antibodies. HA-specific T-cells were measured in IFNγ Elispot assays. The efficiency of the influenza vaccine candidates were evaluated in a challenge model by measuring viral titer in lung and nasal turbinate 3 days after inoculation of a homologous H1N1 virus ...
Things have been a tad hectic here lately, thus the delays in any posts. Last week Maddie had her tonsils and adenoids removed, new tubes put in her ears and her nasal turbinates shaved down. The goal here was to help her breath better and hopefully help with her snoring and sleep. She has always been a restless sleeper and always seemed tired. We are hoping this surgery will be the fix we have been looking for. The surgery in itself was easy and over within an hour. The recovery has been more than I ever anticipated. I knew she would be in pain, I knew it would be hard to watch and I knew it would take at least two weeks for her to heal. What I did not know, was the extreme pain she would be in. That she wouldnt have much of an ability to eat anything, (lately she has started to eat pretzels and will only drink water and chocolate milk from McDonalds...at least she is eating) I didnt realize how much weight she would lose. She initially lost 4-5 pounds, but has put 3 of those pounds back on ...
Elephant seals are different from most other mammals. No other mammal fasts while lactating, or can lose so much body weight without serious problems. Males stay on land for 100 days and lose 7 kg a day during the breeding season. The top ranked male may lose about 41 percent of body weight. Lower ranked males lose around 34 percent. Females fast for 30 days while lactating. These are desert mammal adaptations. They have efficient kidneys and elaborate nasal turbinates to recapture moisture ...

The conchal crest articulates with the inferior nasal concha and the area below it is depressed to form the lateral wall of the inferior meatus. The ethmoidal crest articulates with the middle nasal concha and the depressed area between the ethmoidal and conchal crests forms the lateral wall of the middle meatus. Further above the ethmoidal crest there lies a narrow groove for the superior meatus.. The maxillary (lateral) surface presents three parts, intermediate, postero-superior and antero-inferior. The immediate and major part articulates with the nasal surface of the body of maxilla behind the maxillary hiatus and bears an oblique deep groove which, with the similar groove of maxilla, forms a bony canal for the transmission of greater palatine vessels and nerves.. The posterosuperior part is smooth and forms the medial wall of pterygo-palatine fossa. The antero-inferior part is also smooth, overlaps the posterior part of maxillary hiatus and forms the medial wall of the maxillary ...

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh! ...
