Nasal Surgery Cure Snoring
Nasal blockage can cause snoring and obstructive sleep apnea and nasal surgery will help reduce the symptoms of OSA and snoring to some extent.Therefore, the treatment of nasal obstruction plays an important role in sleep apnea surgery. Three anatomic areas of the nose that may contribute to obstruction are the septum, the turbinates, and the nasal valve. The most common nasal surgical procedure consists of septoplasty and turbinate reduction. It consists of straightening out the septum and reducing the size of the turbinates. This procedure creates more room in the nose and allows air to pass smoothly and without effort. Surgical relief of nasal obstruction improves snoring in a range from 30% to as high as 80% as per different studies.
