Nasal surgery fails most29th July 2011
A survey has suggested that nasal surgery does not always relieve snoring and sleep problems.
It comes as Labour leader Ed Miliband underwent surgery to correct a deviated septum earlier this week - aimed at curing his sleep apnoea. But a survey of 2,000 patients by the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association found 80% said surgery had not worked for them. The “gold standard” treatment for sleep apnoea is CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure), where patients wear a mask at night to help them breath.
