Mar 17, 2018
Despite all the achievements of modern medicine, the problem of chronic tonsillitis is still relevant. A huge number of people suffer from this disease in varying degrees of severity.
Almost every one of us often has to listen to complaints of fatigue, drowsiness, fever without cause, sore throat or bad breath. These are just some of the symptoms that indicate the presence of chronic tonsillitis.
However, not every patient knows how to treat tonsils and what techniques for this exist now.
Flushing is a widespread medical procedure that is performed in chronic tonsillitis.
Almost every person who suffers from this disease, probably, came across her at least once. Let's see why washing tonsils in tonsillitis is so common and what effect this procedure gives. To understand for yourself the principle of carrying out such a procedure, you need to first have an idea of the structure of the palatine tonsil, as well as the peculiarities of the inflammatory process that occurs in them.
Tonsils are an accumulation of lymphoid tissue, located in the pharynx, in the so-called almond niches. It is worth noting that this is not the only cluster of tissues in the upper respiratory tract. However, these organs can be called the largest in size. Moreover, inside the ailment there are natural voids and lacunae.
Since the palatine tonsil is a lymphoepithelial organ, pathological changes in the inflammatory process occur in the epithelium, in the lacunas described above. If we take into account the multitude of cavities and passages inside the tonsils, the natural excretion of the contents, which mostly consists of dead leukocytes, the epithelium of microbes is always difficult.
Therefore, the procedure for washing the tonsils with a special syringe is a necessary measure in the treatment of chronic tonsillitis. During the first days of the disease, such a procedure is quite effective, however, if the pus on the tonsils is already in a frozen state, more sophisticated equipment is used.
Features of the procedure
The most common method for carrying out this procedure is washing with a special solution. In the process of carrying out such an event, a syringe for washing tonsils is most often used. This technique has some drawbacks associated with the very technique of performing the procedure.
So, within the latter, a special needle is used for washing. The syringe with a medicinal solution is entered by the doctor in a lacuna of an amygdala. Then, the drug solution, which is supplied from the syringe under pressure, rinses the voids and the strokes in this organ.
With this method of cleansing the tonsils, it is almost impossible to achieve the drainage of all lacunae, as the diameter of the cannula does not allow it to enter small gaps. Even that lacuna that is washed does not remain completely cleaned after the procedure, since the jet of the solution can not only wash out, but also drive the pathological contents deeper. However, the most difficult thing in this procedure is that it traumatizes epithelium lacunae and there is scarring, which reduces the possibility of natural removal of pathological masses.
Therefore, most experts consider the most effective method at the moment, in which a device for washing tonsils is used. If you compare this device with the traditional method, you can immediately notice its positive features.
The advantages of the procedure within the framework of which the hardware washing is carried out, their cost is relatively low, while the positive therapeutic effect is much higher. Thus, with the use of such a device, a triple effect is achieved, which consists in simultaneous action on the tonsils of vacuum, drug solution and ultrasound, which completely cleans the body of pathological contents, does not injure the cavity of the tonsils and, accordingly, accelerates recovery of the patient.
