This study was performed to evaluate the effect of inferior turbinate reduction on nasal function.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: The Journal of craniofacial surgery
The association of nasal airway obstruction with health is significant, and the health care resources utilized in open septorhinoplasty need to be included in health economic analyses.
The internal nasal valve (INV) is bound by the nasal septum, inferior turbinate and the upper lateral cartilage (ULC). It is the most important determinant of nasal airflow, and critical for nasal ...
Nasal obstruction is one of the most frequent and bothersome symptoms in rhinosinal disease. Although we are able to measure nasal airflow, the correlation between the feeling of nasal obstruction and...
Nasal obstruction is a highly subjective and commonly reported symptom. The internal nasal valve (INV) is the rate limiting step to nasal airflow. A static INV grading score was devised with regard to...
Septorhinoplasty is a surgical procedure widely employed by otolaryngologists and plastic surgeons. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a single pre-emptive dose of iv ibuprofe...
patients will be placed in 2 groups, with or without turbinate cautery ( a surgical method to reduce the size of the skin covered bones in the nose), at the time of adenoidectomy and tonsi...
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs in 2-4% of middle age adults and results in significant morbidity and mortality. The first line therapy is provision of continuous positive airway pressure ...
Turbinates are large structures in the nasal airway that help the nose to clean and humidify the air we breathe. Inferior turbinates can swell up and block the breathing passage, making i...
Septoplasty/septorhinoplasty is one of the most common surgical procedures performed in ENT clinics. Intranasal packing is widely used post-operatively for nasal septum stabilization and b...
Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) has become the standard of care for patients suffering of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis (CRSwP) who have failed medical therapy. The goal of su...
A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.
Method of treating pain associated with the sphenopalatine ganglion located in the PTERYGOPALATINE FOSSA, posterior to the middle nasal turbinate. The transnasal approach involves application of suitable local anesthetic to the mucous membrane overlying the ganglion.
Surgery performed on the ear and its parts, the nose and nasal cavity, or the throat, including surgery of the adenoids, tonsils, pharynx, and trachea.
Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.
The proximal portion of the respiratory passages on either side of the NASAL SEPTUM. Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
