Transcanal Endoscopic Ear Surgery (TEES)

Endoscopic Ear Surgery, also known as Transcanal Endoscopic Ear Surgery (TEES) is one of the ultra-modern surgical innovations used to operate the minute and delicate structures located within the middle ear. The human ear possesses relatively tiny structures including three bones of the middle ear, known as ossicles. Using traditional ear surgery techniques, the ENT professionals had to access the middle ear through an incision behind the ear. But with the advent of Endoscopic Ear Surgeon In Dubai, the ENT Surgeons make access to the middle ear through the ear canal with the dual benefits of minimal pain and fast recovery.

The endoscopes make the ENT surgeons have a broader look behind the bony ledges and around the corners to bring the best outcomes for the surgery done.

Uses of Endoscopic Ear Surgery

Transcanal Endoscopic Ear Surgery (TEES) is used to treat various ear-related disorders in the paediatrics and adults. They include:

Cerebrospinal Fluid Leakage: CSF is the fluid that surrounds and shields the brain and spinal cord. Cerebrospinal fluid leakage causes symptoms in the ears, usually in the temporal bone located at the skull’s side and base. Such leakage can be congenital or acquired from trauma, surgery or infection.

Acoustic Neuroma: The non-cancerous tumour formulates on the vestibular nerve that leads from the inner ear to the brain. It leads to hearing problems and also the growth of tumours that can further cause balance issues. TEES is used to treat the loss of hearing and tumours.

Cholesteatoma: Cholesteatomas can be defined as the development of benign skin cyst that is usually made up of the dead skin cells and skin in the middle ear. It can be formed due to the recurrent ear infections or injuries in the ear. Transcanal Endoscopic Ear Surgery with perfect Visualization is used to treat cholesteatomas to avoid any incision while performing this surgery.

Facial Nerve Disorders: The condition formulates on any infection, injury tumour. It induces facial paralysis due to the formation of an abnormal cluster of blood vessels in the face. Face Nerve Disorders are occasionally treated with TEES.

Cholesterol Granuloma: The formation of benign cyst in the region of petrous apex of the skull near the middle ear. The cysts are filled with cholesterol, fluid and lipids.

Tympanoscelorsis: It is the formation of calcium deposits, scar tissue or bone tissue in the middle ear, and Tympanoscelrosis. When a similar condition affects the eardrum only, it is known as Myringosclerosis. TEES are used to treat this condition.

Osteoma: In the bones near the ear canal, development of benign tumour results into Osteoma. It further results from the recurrent exposures to cold water, causing pain, loss of hearing and repeated ear infections.

Benefits of Transcanal Endoscopic Ear Surgery

Common Pediatric Surgeries Performed by ENT Specialist

Pediatric Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) problems are one of the commonest ones due to which children have to visit most often to the medical professionals. Whether it may be due to change in weather or place or even dietary habits, children usually get infected from severe ENT disorders no matter how much their parents try to protect them.

Frequent nosebleeds, tonsils, sinuses, adenoids, deviated septum, ear infections et al. are some of the most common ENT issues children face. Sometimes, such disorders become too chronic for only an ENT surgeon to proceed for immediate surgeries. In this blog, we will discuss some of the common Pediatric Surgeries being performed by expert ENT specialists in dubai to treat chronic ENT issues.

1. Tonsillectomy

Tonsillectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures. Only experienced Pediatric ENT surgery specialists doctor in Dubai perform this surgery. The primary aim of doing it is to treat the upper airway obstruction or breathing problems due to sleep disorders induced due to large and chronic Tonsillitis.

Tonsils are the pair of tiny lymph nodes located near the back of the throat. They act as the defensive system to eliminate the spread of infection by removing toxins and harmful bacteria. Any bacterial or viral infection in the tonsils can lead to Tonsillitis. If left untreated, leads to strep throat and scarlet fever.

Tonsillectomy is considered a highly successful treatment for Tonsillitis. It involves the removal of tonsils using advanced technology. Various techniques including cutting cold methods, electrocautery hot techniques and Advanced Coblation techniques, make it an effective treatment option. This procedure usually involves 40 to 60 minutes.

2. Adenoidectomy

Adenoidectomy is another most common surgical procedure. It is performed to treat the infections related to adenoids. The adenoids are a pair of glands located at the back of the throat and underneath the nose. These are also responsible for fighting against the antigens or foreign bodies by formulating white blood cells. Recurrent sore throats in children lead to the enlargement of adenoids which further make difficulties while breathing especially during the sleep at night. They also cause obstructive sleep apnea. An adenoidectomy is the only surgical technique involved to remove the enlarged infected adenoids. An expert ENT professional can perform such surgeries within 60 minutes while considering proper care of your child.

Sometimes, during chronic infections, ENT surgeons have to perform both tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, known as Adenotonsillectomy to remove both tonsils and adenoids simultaneously.

3. Sinus Surgery

The sinuses are the small air pockets located behind the forehead, nose, cheekbones, and between the eyes. Any viral and bacterial infection can cause blockage of sinuses. This condition is known as sinusitis. Thus, the ENT professionals perform sinus surgery to treat inflammation of the nose and sinus involving the enlargement of the openings betwixt sinuses and nose to get proper airflow and drainage.

Advanced Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) involves endoscopes and micro-instruments to access the nasal passages. The technique has eliminated the procedure of access through cheeks that resulted in scarring. An expert ENT professional performs the entire process within 2 hours without undergoing any external or internal incisions.

4. Tympanoplasty (Ear Drum Patching)

Repeated ear discharge, poor hearing, earache or pus-filled mucus are the signs of perforated eardrums common in children. A Tympanoplasty or Myringoplasty is the surgical procedure used to patch the tympanic membrane. It involves tissue grafting. If not performed by an expert ENT Surgeon, the surgery might cause some severe obstructions like graft failure, loss of hearing, and, therefore, essential to consult some expert and experienced ENT Professional near you.

What is Endoscopic Septoplasty

Endoscopic Septoplasty is one of the endo-nasal procedures used to correct the deviated septum. Both right and left sides of the nose are divided by the septum. Any kind of deviation, bent or crookedness can cause the obstruction of either side of the nose. To rectify the deviations, experts use the septoplasty technique which is considered the most useful one. Using the contemporary techniques, Septoplasty procedure performs the endoscopically with a quite small incision.

Risks Associated with the Deviated Septum

In many cases, the deviation in septum does not cause any issue. But there are some of the risks and problems associated with the deviated septum that necessitates an Endoscopic Septoplasty.

● Obstruction in breathing

Any bent or crookedness in the nasal septum results into difficulty in breathing as the sufferer feels incapable to inhale through one or both of his nostrils. It becomes more difficult during the winters due to swelling and tightness of Nasal entries.

● Nosebleeds

The risk of nosebleeds is always associated with deviated septum due to the dryness related cases.

● Repeated Sinusitis

It becomes difficult to drain mucus properly by the sinuses. It leads to build up of mucus eventually which gets infected and leads to recurrent sinusitis.

Noisy Breathing while sleeping

In most of the patients, the swelling of the intranasal tissue as well as deviated septum leads to noisy breathing when the child is sleeping.

Procedure of Endoscopic Septoplasty

Endoscopic Septoplasty is performed under the effect of anesthesia. It takes approximately 30-90 minutes by an expert ENT professional to complete the entire procedure. The incision is made by ENT specialist on one side of the nose with the O-degree scope. A Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) is sometimes also performed along with an endoscopic septoplasty. It is a kind of sinus surgery that recovers the abnormalities related to structure within the nose which results into linked breathing issues and chronic sinusitis. The patients suffering from painful sinus symptoms are recommended to go for Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery. The sinus surgery is done once the deviation is corrected with the septoplasty.

Quite frequently, Endoscopic Septoplasty is also performed along with turbinate reduction if necessary (known as Septoturbinoplasty)

Benefits of Endoscopic Septoplasty

As compared to standard head light technique, endoscopic septoplasty offers various benefits including:

● Approach to paranasal sinuses and trans-septal access
● Sufficient Visualization
● Accessibility to remote areas
● Minimal Nasal Bleeding

An experienced ENT professional always prioritize the concerns associated with the ENT surgeries by proffering proper care and medication to his patients.
