The patient is status post bilateral partial ethmoidectomies and antrectomies since the prior examination. There is mucosal thickening superficial to an agger nasi cell on the left although the frontoethmoid recess is otherwise clear. The frontal sinuses are otherwise clear. There is no nasal or nasopharyngeal mass. The previously seen deviation of the maxillary spine is no longer present. Maxillary spine appears to have been resected. There is no bony destruction or expansion. The intraorbital contents are unremarkable as is the orbital apex and sella turcica. Middle ear cavity and mastoid air cells are grossly clear.
Would you be able to interpret this in a detailed and understandable way? Also, my doctor recommended that I have another surgery to clean my sinuses (especially frontal). Do you think this is necessary? If not, what other options are there to relieve the pressure?
Obliteration of bilateral omu and left enthmoid infundibulum with associated chronic ethmoidal, maxillary sinusistis
mild frontal and left sphenoidal sinusitis
what does it mean mucosal thickening in bilateral frontal, maxilllary sphenoidal sinuses and ethmoid ear cells - s/o pansinusitis.
Thanks for posting the query
All the information you have provided is about the CT scan findings of the nose and the paranasal sinuses. Let me explain to you what exactly theses structures are, so that, you will get an idea about this problem.
Paranasal means around or near your nose. Sinuses...
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
The findings you have mentioned are radiological findings which indicate an abnormal lining mucosa in the air spaces in the facial bones called the sinuses.
The finding indicates a chronic infection, allergic state leading to inflammation or...
What is this? Can anything be done about this?
picture "morning 1" - what is on my adenoid every morning.
picture "morning 2" - what is underneath all that nonsense. There are more spots above
picture "morning 3" - with the mucus cleared out. The eustachian tube continually drips too.
picture "morning 4" - mucus on a tissue
This affects my sleep, concentration, weight...pretty much everything and would be nice to have it resolved somehow. The doctors don't know what is wrong with me.
Thank you for your query.
1. The first image shows some adenoid tissue and the thick mucus. It is blurred and hence difficult to orient. No other landmarks are seen. The 2nd & 3rd image do not open on Image Shack. The 4th image with the thick mucus on a paper tissue is clear.
2. Seeing your...
Welcome in H.C.M. for consultation.
I have gone through your query regarding your sinus problem and you are having recurrent upper respiratory infections in the form of running nose and cough etc.
Here I would like to tell you that sinusitis is the infection of sinuses, and they are named...
My mother has some nasal problem. Nose keeps blocked. A CT scan has been done and report is as follows:
=======Procedure: Contrast enhanced axial & coronal section o PNS are obtained as per slice plan and evaluated.
-Rt. Maxillary sinus is completely filled with heterogeneously enhancing soft tissue density mass tesion which is extended medially to the osteomeatal complex through the widened ostium resulting bony erosion o its medial wall, inferiorly extended to the nasal cavity, antero superiorly extended to the fronto ethmoidal sinus with thickened trabaculae and posteriorly extended to the sphenoid sinus.
-Lt maxillary sinus is incompletely filled with heterogeneous soft tissue density mass lesion with is extended medially to the osteomeatal unit through the widended ostium/infundibulum, anetero superiorly extended to the ethmoidal and fronto-ethomidal recess, posteriorly extended to sphenoid sinus.
-Lt inferior turbinate seems to be normal
-Increased sclerosis with thickened lateral wall of maxillary sinus is open.
-Septum is central in position.
-Orbits are normal.
IMPRESSION:- ABOVE CT FINDINGS ARE S/O:-
BILLATERAL SINO NASAL POLYPOSIS (R>L).
POSSIBILITY OF SUPER ADDED FUNGAL/MITOTIC PATHOLOGY ON THE RT. SIDE CANNOT BE RULED OUT========
We have consulted some ENT consultants and they suggested surgery. Is there any possibilities to treat is without surgery in homeopathy?
