Coblation Turbinate Reduction is a specific procedure that can provide significant relief from the symptoms of turbinate hypertrophy such as congestion and sleep disruption.  Turbinate Coblation is a quick, painless procedure performed in the office that offers immediate results. Before the procedure, the nose is numbed. Then, a coblation wand, which emits radiofrequency energy, is inserted into the turbinate. The result is shrinking of the tissue leading to an overall reduction in turbinate size without the removal of bone. The nasal passages are thereby opened and the nasal obstruction is resolved. 

Preoperative Evaluation
Virtually all patients who are candidates for simultaneous rhinoplasty and FESS seek the advice and treatment of a physician because of their sinus complaints. As with any presenting problem, the clinician should elicit a through medical history with a particular focus on the sinus complaints as well as any functional and nasal deformities. Aspects that should be addressed include the duration of symptoms, associated allergic symptoms, overuse of topical decongestants, prior nasal surgery, failure to respond to medical therapies in the past, and trauma. In addition, if headaches and facial pressure are described, their exact location and possible association with certain allergic factor and visual disturbances should be ascertained. Migraines or neuralgias should be considered in the differential diagnosis.

In most children, the adenoid enlarges normally during early childhood, when infections of the nose and throat are most common. They usually shrink as the child gets older and disappear by puberty. However, in some children, the adenoid continues to become larger and block the passage behind the nose. This can result in snoring, breathing through the mouth, and/or a HYPONASAL sound to the speech (sounds like talking with a stuffed nose). Additionally, this can result in OTITIS MEDIA (middle ear infections) because of blockage of the eustachian tube (the tube that connects the ear to the throat).

An enlarged adenoid, or adenoid hypertrophy , can become nearly the size of a ping pong ball and completely block airflow through the nasal passages. Even if the enlarged adenoid is not substantial enough to physically block the back of the nose, it can obstruct airflow enough so that breathing through the nose requires an uncomfortable amount of work, and inhalation occurs instead through an open mouth. The enlarged adenoid would also obstruct the nasal airway enough to affect the voice without actually stopping nasal airflow altogether.
