Choanal Atresia

Preventing Choanal Atresia

Because the root cause is not known, there are no specific actions to take for the prevention of choanal atresia. Many doctors believe that environmental toxins, such as some herbicides, may create a hormonal imbalance in pregnant women that leads to choanal atresia, as well as being connected to a variety of other health problems. While no direct connection has been established between environmental factors and choanal atresia, avoiding contamination as much as possible may help reduce health risks associated with those factors.
