Quirónsalud Valencia leads in Spain the world meeting of endoscopic sinus surgery in streaming
The Quirónsalud Hospital in Valencia has become the Spanish reference center for a live intervention at the third International Encounter of Nasosinusal Endoscopic Surgery and Skull Base organized by Live International Otolaryngology Network. During the meeting, leading specialists in this technique, have been able to share via streaming different surgical approaches from different hospitals in the United States, England or Switzerland.
The intervention, conducted by doctors Irene López and César Casanova and led by Dr. Manuel Bernal Sprekelsen, otolaryngologists specializing in endoscopic sinus surgery and skull base Hospital Quirónsalud Valencia, has consisted in the endoscopic approach of a chronic rhinosinusitis with nasosinusal polyposis. During the broadcast different connected specialists have been able to ask their questions and contrast their experiences.
Endoscopic surgery of the nose and sinuses addresses acute or chronic diseases in which sinus drains have been blocked, retaining mucus or pus without responding to medical treatment. "That's when the affected paranasal sinuses are repainted through the nostrils without the need to make external incisions (on the face) that later leave scars. One of the chronic sinusitis that causes greater discomfort is the one that is accompanied by polypoid tissue formation that obstructs nasal breathing like the one that has been addressed in this surgery, "explains Dr. Bernal.
This type of surgery is also the most indicated for the approach of the turbinates and the obstruction of the lacrimal through the nose with the help of endoscopes of cold light that facilitate illuminating the nasal passages to visualize all the surgical maneuvers.
Quirónsalud Valencia incorporates the best specialist for the treatment of laryngeal cancer
Dr. Manuel Bernal Sprekelsen, professor of otolaryngology at the Medical University of Valencia, has developed a large part of his professional career as head of the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona. He has recently added his services to the medical staff of Hospital Quirónsalud Valencia with the aim of offering his patients minimally invasive endoscopic techniques for the treatment of nose and paranasal sinus pathologies of which the doctor is one of the pioneers worldwide. Likewise, Dr. Manuel Bernal is one of the leading figures in the approach to cancer of the larynx by means of transoral microsurgery with a carbon dioxide laser in which the precision and coagulation capacity of the carbonic laser is combined with microscopic control and provides very good oncological results. functional Their results in early laryngeal tumors are totally comparable to those of partial external surgery, with local control equal to or superior to that achieved with radiotherapy. For this reason, transoral laser microsurgery is now considered a first-line treatment for early laryngeal cancer, offering a survival rate of over 90% at five years, as well as the preservation of the larynx.
