ORPHA:137914  Choanal atresia

:: Activity limitation/participation restriction is described according to the Orphanet Functioning Thesaurus, derived and adapted from the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health – Children and Youth (ICF-CY, WHO 2007). The provided information is assessed from the whole patients’ population affected by the disease, receiving standard care and management (specific and/or symptomatic management, prevention and prophylaxis, devices and aids, care and support). Functional consequences are organized by their frequency in the patients’ population. This general information may not apply to specific cases. Some difficulties reported here can occur with a different temporality or severity degree, and others that are not listed can nevertheless arise.

:: The functional consequences listed below are related to the most common situation of the patients receiving optimal standard care and management (specific and/or symptomatic management, prevention and prophylaxis, devices and aids, care and support).
However, some patients may receive a particular management (neonatal screening, new treatment, management applying only in specific situations) enabling a better functioning, that is not described here.
