Catarrh Problems & Treatments
The symptoms of catarrh is translatable into several different meanings – from blocked nose and sinus pains, to throaty symptoms, tickly cough and post nasal drip, lump in throat sensation, continuous throat clearing and phlegm. All can be treated by our specialist ENT Laser.
A common condition treated with the irritating continuous clearing of the throat or the feeling of a lump at the back of the tongue. This can cause a tickly, dry cough and other throat symptoms. The ENT Unit Consultants provide effective treatment for these uncomfortable symptoms which can also be related to snoring, enlarged tonsils and nose blockage.
Treatment Of Catarrh
Your Consultant will help you decide on an appropriate treatment linked to the catarrh cause. One of the main treatments we perform is called laser vapourisation of the uvula (Laser uvulectomy). Laser Vapourisation uses a flash-scanned Carbon Dioxide laser and can be performed under local anaesthetic which can include a simple application of an anaesthetic spray, followed by a single small injection. The procedure takes about 10 minutes. Speech and swallowing are not affected. Recovery time is quick and often patients can eat and drink within 30 minutes of return from the operating theatre. Driving home is allowed, but not encouraged.
