Sigma KEE - Septoplasty

appearance as argument number 1

(documentation Septoplasty EnglishLanguage "Septoplasty or alternatively submucous septal resection and septal reconstruction, is a corrective surgical procedure done to straighten a deviated NasalSeptum – the nasal septum being the partition between the two NasalCavities. Ideally, the septum should run down the center of the nose. When it deviates into one of the cavities, it narrows that cavity and impedes airflow. Deviated nasal septum or 'crooked' internal nose can occur at childbirth or as the result of an injury or other trauma. If the wall that functions as a separator of both sides of the nose is tilted towards one side at a degree greater than 50%, it might cause difficulty breathing. Often the inferior turbinate on the opposite side enlarges, which is termed compensatory hypertrophy. Deviations of the septum can lead to nasal obstruction. Most surgeries are completed in 60 minutes or less, while the recovery time could be up to several weeks. Put simply, septoplasty is a surgery that helps repair the passageways in the nose making it easier to breathe. This surgery is usually performed on patients with a deviated septum, recurrent rhinitis, or ossinus issues. [from Wikipedia]") Medicine.kif 4426-4444
