Concha Bullosa Resection

Survey

Indications:

  • Obstruction of sinus outflow passages
  • Enhanced surgical access for ESS

Highlights:

  • Exposure of concha interior
  • Resection of lateral lamella

Keep in Mind/Things to Remember:

  • Leave inferior aspect of basal lamella intact so as not to destabilize the turbinate.
  • By cutting the edge of the turbinate it may result in formation of adhesion to lateral nasal wall, if the turbinate is unstable.
