Rinite cronica ostruttiva

Coloro che hanno difficoltà
a respirare dal naso
possono trovare beneficio
da interventi mini-invasivi
sui turbinati inferiori 

otorino-visita-otorinolaringoiatricaLa visita otorinolaringoiatrica - visita ORL - è una visita medica specialistica che valuta il distretto testa-collo con l'eccezione dei denti, degli occhi e del cervello. Appartengono all'otorinolaringoiatria anche lo studio di quattro funzioni sensoriali importanti: udito, equilibrio, olfatto e gusto. Le possibili malattie sono molte. Si ritiene che ogni persona che gode di buona salute dovrebbe affrontare nella sua vita questa visita ogni...

chirurgia-videoendoscopicaLa chirurgia videoendscopica è una branca della chirurgia che si realizza per mezzo di strumenti a fibre ottiche che permettono di vedere il campo operatorio su un video. Questa chirurgia trova la sua massima applicazione negli interventi sul naso e sui seni paranasali. Questi interventi si fanno esclusivamente col paziente addormentato: "in narcosi". Per poter operare è necessaria l'immobilizzazione e l'assenza di riflessi. Si...

biopsia-otorino-govoniLa biopsia o prelievo bioptico è una tecnica semplice che viene utilizzata sia in ambulatorio che in corso d'intervento. Le finalità sono diverse. Biopsia ambulatoriale.Lo scopo della biopsia ambulatoriale è quello di togliere un pezzetto di tessuto e farlo analizzare allo scopo di capire la natura della malattia. Nell'ambito della testa e del collo le biopsie ambulatoriali si eseguono su ogni parte della pelle della testa e del collo, nella...

esame-impedenzometricoLa valutazione impedenzometrica serve per studiare la funzione uditiva in modo oggettivo. E' questa una materia strettamente specialistica di competenza degli otorinolaringoiatri. Essendo una metodica oggettiva consente una valutazione dell'apparato uditivo senza la necessità di avere le risposte del paziente. Nell'ambito della valutazione impedenzometrica si riconoscono alcune tecniche specifiche: le più...

olfattometria-govoniL’olfattometria è una metodica che consiste nell’impiego di sostanze odorose di svariata natura che vengono presentate al paziente. Esiste una standardizzazione degli odori e nella registrazione ed elaborazione statistica delle risposte. Lo scopo è ottenere una valutazione della capacità olfattiva. I test olfattometrici sono sostanzialmente soggettivi, cioè si basano sulle risposte del paziente. Interessanti sono i test psicometrici che consentono...

fibrorinoscopia-laringofibroscopiaLa fibroendoscopia laringea e la fibroendoscopia nasale sono esami clinici finalizzati all'osservazione della laringe e delle cavità interne del naso. Altri sinonimi sono laringofibroscopia e rinofibroscopia o nasofibroscopia o videorinoscopia. Non sempre la rinoscopia e la laringoscopia descritte nella visita otorinolaringoiatrica permettono di inquadrare perfettamente il paziente. In questi soggetti e nei pazienti in cui si vuole...

valutazione-audiometrica-audiologica-bilancioLe prove audiometriche rivestono un ruolo ezzenziale nell'ambito della visita otorinolaringoiatrica per malattie otologiche. Raramente consentono di arrivare ad una diagnosi, ma sono essenziali per arrivare ad una diagnosi di sede, cioè per comprendere in quale parte dell'orecchio è presente la malattia. L’udito è un organo di senso fondamentale nella vita di relazione.  Ricordo la famosa frase di Helen...

esame-clinico-otoneurologicoL'esame clinico otoneurologico è quell'esame che si esegue senza particolari strumenti, in ambulatorio, e consente di inquadrare il paziente affetto da crisi vertiginose. Nel senso più ampio del termine l'otoneurologia comprende anche la funzione uditiva, che non affronteremo in questa pagina. Per la valutazione dell'udito si rimanda ad altri articoli come l'esame audiometrico e l'impedenzometria. A - Anamnesi. Un esame otoneurologico...
