Reversal of Youngs procedure in hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia
The Journal of Laryngology & Otology, 11/05/2012Oozeer NB et al.
A patient with hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia had his Young's procedure reversed under general anaesthetic by dividing the mucocutaneous flaps. Stopping airflow through the nasal cavity via a Young's procedure prevents the telangiectasia from bleeding but does not make them disappear completely. Young's procedure does not seem to have any long–lasting effect on the nasal mucosa of patients with hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia.
