A concha bullosa of the middle turbinate
most commonly drains into the anterior ethmoid sinus.
Most cases of inferior turbinate
hypertrophy are amenable to medical treatment including antihistamines, topical and systemic steroids and allergen avoidance.
The occurrence of osteoma in the middle nasal turbinate
is extremely rare, and a review of the literature showed only eight such reported cases (3-10).
As a result of this the turbinates
are swollen and become enlarged, a condition referred to as inferior turbinate
The detailed morphology of nasal cavity comprising of dorsal nasal turbinate
, ventral nasal turbinate
, middle nasal turbinate
bones and boundaries were recorded.
It provides significantly improved results in inferior turbinate
It included 60 patients, diagnosed with allergic or non-allergic chronic rhinitis with inferior turbinate
hypertrophy which was refractory to medical therapy.
A concha bullosa is a pneumatised middle turbinate
and has a reported prevalence of 34%.
Controversy still exists as to the best or most appropriate method for surgical reduction of the inferior turbinate
A series of cross profiles (>10), oriented perpendicularly to the region of interest, were analysed for the following target regions: Bulla Ethmoidalis, Lamina Papyracea, Middle Turbinate
, Maxillary Wall, Posterior Ethmoid, Uncinate Process and Superior Turbinate

About 10%-15% of the population has concha bullosa--an aerated middle turbinate
homogenate from poults exposed to the 4 genotypes of hMPV was injected onto LLC-MK2 cells for virus isolation.

A second-look procedure is appropriate for those with a lateralized middle turbinate
and/or persistent postoperative infection.
