Nasal Polyps

Welcome to Emirates Hospitals Group, your premier destination for comprehensive nasal polyps treatment in Dubai. Our specialized ENT team offers advanced care to effectively manage nasal polyps and improve nasal health.

Nasal polyps are noncancerous growths that develop in the lining of the nasal passages or sinuses. They are typically soft and painless, and they vary in size. Nasal polyps result from chronic inflammation of the mucous membranes lining the nose and sinuses, often due to conditions like chronic sinusitis, allergies, asthma, or certain immune disorders.

Symptoms of nasal polyps may include nasal congestion, difficulty breathing through the nose, reduced sense of smell or taste, facial pain or pressure, snoring, and frequent sinus infections. Diagnosis is usually confirmed through a nasal endoscopy, which allows the doctor to visualize the polyps, or sometimes through imaging studies like CT scans.

Treatment options for nasal polyps depend on their size and severity. Mild cases may be managed with nasal corticosteroid sprays or oral corticosteroids to reduce inflammation and shrink the polyps. In cases where medications do not provide sufficient relief or when polyps are large, surgical removal (endoscopic sinus surgery) may be necessary.

Managing underlying conditions such as allergies or sinusitis can help prevent recurrence of nasal polyps. Regular follow-up with an ENT specialist is important to monitor for recurrence and ensure long-term management of nasal and sinus health.

Symptoms of Nasal Polyps

These symptoms can significantly impact daily life and require prompt evaluation and treatment. Nasal polyps may present with a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Nasal congestion
  • Runny nose (rhinorrhea)
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Reduced sense of smell or taste
  • Facial pain or pressure
  • Snoring or sleep disturbances

Diagnosis of Nasal Polyps

Precise diagnosis guides personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s specific condition and symptoms. Accurate diagnosis of nasal polyps involves a thorough assessment by our ENT specialists, including:

  • Nasal Endoscopy: Visual examination of the nasal passages to detect polyps.
  • Imaging Studies: CT scans or MRI to evaluate the extent and location of nasal polyps and assess sinus involvement.
  • Allergy Testing: Identifying allergens that may contribute to chronic inflammation and nasal polyp development.

Procedures for Nasal Polyps Treatment

Our nasal polyps treatment involves a range of procedures designed to address nasal polyps effectively:

  • Endoscopic Sinus Surgery: Minimally invasive surgery to remove nasal polyps and improve sinus drainage.
  • Corticosteroid Nasal Sprays: Medications to reduce inflammation and shrink nasal polyps.
  • Oral Corticosteroids: Systemic medications to manage severe inflammation and symptoms associated with nasal polyps.
  • Biologic Therapy: Targeted therapy for patients with severe or recurrent nasal polyps not responsive to other treatments.

Recovery Process After Nasal Polyps Treatment

Our goal is to provide comprehensive care and support throughout the recovery process, optimizing nasal health and quality of life for our patients. Recovery from nasal polyps treatment focuses on symptom management and long-term prevention of recurrence:

  • Post-operative Care: Following surgical procedures or initiation of medical treatments, including monitoring for complications and managing pain.
  • Medication Compliance: Adhering to prescribed nasal sprays, oral medications, or biologic therapies as directed.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Regular visits to assess healing progress, adjust treatments as needed, and monitor for recurrence.
