Throat and palate plasticity
It is a procedure involving the shortening of the uvula, soft palate and the reduction of the palatal tonsils. Partial removal of the tonsils increases the throat space. The insertion of appropriate sutures (no need to remove them) stiffens the throat walls. This treatment reduces snoring and reduces the incidence of obstructive apnea during sleep. The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and the patient remains in hospital until the next day.
Nasal septum surgeries
Abnormal nasal patency is also the cause of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OBPS). The surgery technique used in Krajmed consists in the complete reconstruction of the curved areas. The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and the patient remains in hospital until the next day.
Conchoplasty (correction of the nasal auricles)
The nasal auricles are the plaques that fill the nasal cavities. The air flowing between them is cleaned, humidified and heated. When the auricles are oversized, they can block the airflow and require surgical correction. The lower auricles can be corrected under local anaesthesia, while the others are operated under anaesthesia.
Nasal polyps are intense swelling of the nasal mucosa, filling the sinuses and/or nasal cavities. These are not cancerous changes, but they block the nose with their presence, so they must be removed. The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and the patient remains in hospital until the next day.
Posterior tongue hypertrophy
In these cases, the excessive weight of the tongue can be reduced surgically.
As part of the treatment of snoring, we also offer the possibility of renting CPAP apparatus, which normalizes breathing during sleep.
