Default Septal Spur - Nose Pictures



Septal Spur: This patient had chronic headaches which were relieved with intranasalhurricane spray (numbing solution). It was felt that the large septalspurimpinging upon the middle turbinate may be contributing to the headaches. A septoplastywas performed. The headaches disappeared after the operation.

Although some patients have reported headache relief from the removal of
septalspurs, the results are variable and cannot be guaranteed. View Article Headaches are caused by a wide range of etiologies. Before surgery, it is best to anesthetized (numb) the nose to see if the headache is relieved. Surgery for "sinus headaches" is also debated and results cannot be guaranteed. Shields has shown the there was no correlation between the severity of pain and the severity of sinussymptoms. This brings into question whether sinus disease is causing the symptoms at all. One explanation is that most head pain is caused by tension headaches and migraines. The patients just assume the pain is from sinus disease because of the mass marketing of sinusmedications they see on television.
