In this article, we will delve into what nasal synechiae is, its causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and available treatment options.

What is Nasal Synechiae?

It refers to the formation of a band of scar tissue that connects the inner walls of the nasal cavity, commonly between the turbinates and the nasal septum.

This adhesion can restrict airflow through the nasal passages and can be partial or complete.

Common Causes of Nasal Synechiae

Nasal synechiae can develop for various reasons, although certain risk factors are more common.

This adhesion can restrict airflow through the nasal passages and can be partial or complete.

Surgical Interventions

Nasal surgeries, such as septoplasty or turbinectomy, may lead to the development of synechiae as a postoperative complication if scar tissue forms abnormally during the healing process.

Nasal Trauma

Physical traumas to the nose, whether from sports injuries, accidents, or altercations, can internally damage nasal structures and lead to the formation of connective scar tissue between them.

Key Symptoms

Symptoms of nasal synechiae can vary depending on the severity and location of the adhesion.

Identification of Common Symptoms

The most common symptoms include difficulty breathing through the nose, a continuous sensation of nasal obstruction, and in some cases, an increased incidence of sinus infections due to inadequate ventilation of the nasal passages.

Impact on Quality of Life

The restriction of airflow not only affects breathing but can also impact sleep, exercise capacity, and overall sense of well-being, contributing to the development of conditions such as sleep apnea and chronic fatigue.

Diagnosis of Nasal Synechiae

Correct diagnosis is crucial for the effective treatment of nasal synechiae.

Key Diagnostic Methods

Diagnosis is generally made through a detailed physical examination with a nasal endoscope, allowing the specialist to directly visualize the adhesion inside the nose.

Importance of Early Diagnosis

Early diagnosis can prevent additional complications and facilitate more effective treatment, avoiding the progression of the condition.

Available Treatments

The treatment of nasal synechiae depends on its severity and location but generally requires medical intervention.

Surgical Options

The primary treatment for significant synechiae is surgery, where scar tissue is carefully cut to restore normal airflow.

Postoperative Care and Prevention of Recurrences

After surgery, it may be necessary to use nasal splints to prevent recurrence of adhesions during the healing process.

Additionally, regular follow-up is crucial to monitor recovery and prevent future complications.
