We have newly introduced a modern endoscopic method at the ENT department of the General Hospital in Prague removal of nasal tonsils in children Koblatator plasma probe. This involves the gentle and safe removal of enlarged nasal tonsil tissue in the nasopharynx by the plasma field that forms at the end of the probe. The plasma field gently and effectively disrupts and aspirates the tissue. The plasma probe immediately stops any bleeding. The advantage of the method is less traumatization of the nasopharyngeal base and usually shorter healing time and less pain. More precise removal of nasal tonsil tissue minimizes the risk of regrowth.
The operation is performed under general anesthesia and the procedure lasts about 20 - 40 minutes. We will be happy to provide you with more detailed information and answers to your questions at our children's and general ENT clinic.
Swollen nasal shells in chronic rhinitis cause poor nasal patency, poorer filtration of inhaled air, recurrent sinusitis, snoring. Also, patients who overuse nasal drops may suffer from a stuffy nose if they become accustomed to these nasal drops. A gentle mucotomy can eliminate these problems. Removal or reduction of nasal shells is performed by surgery. At our workplace, we offer mucotomy by radiofrequency thermal ablation (heat), which is more gentle than conventional mucotomy and is performed under local anesthesia.
