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 visibility of the middle turbinate.

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 ...
Understanding the skin biomechanics, specifically pliability and elasticity, in patients with nasal valve collapse may allow for new methods to assess which patients require more advanced nasal valve ...
A clinical study was conducted to determine the effect of nasal valve lift treatment using absorbable, polylactic acid, self-retaining cone threads (Silhouette Soft) in patients with nasal valve steno...
A major limitation of the more widespread application of aortic valve reconstruction is the lack of a common framework for valve assessment that could be used to guide a standardized approach to ao...
The role of noninvasive imaging to help guide transcatheter aortic valvular interventions is well established and has grown with the advances in the procedure. With the rapid development of new transc...
The purpose of this study is to determine if an implant material can be injected to repair nasal valve collapse.
In this study, the study team will investigate the validity and role of nasal dilator strips (NDS), a novel method to determine the site of nasal valve compromise (NVC), in the pre-operati...
Nasal obstruction is a common complaint for the patient presenting to the Otolaryngologist and/or the Facial Plastic surgeon. There are numerous potential causes of nasal obstruction, with...
Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the clinicopathological factors and to evaluate the prognostic accuracy of the new World Health Organization (WHO) 2017 grading system in panc...
Commercially-available internal nasal stents placed inside the nostril should produce decreased nasal obstruction detectable subjectively (volunteers will fill out a survey) and objectivel...
Drugs designed to treat inflammation of the nasal passages, generally the result of an infection (more often than not the common cold) or an allergy related condition, e.g., hay fever. The inflammation involves swelling of the mucous membrane that lines the nasal passages and results in inordinate mucus production. The primary class of nasal decongestants are vasoconstrictor agents. (From PharmAssist, The Family Guide to Health and Medicine, 1993)
Intraoperative computer-assisted 3D navigation and guidance system generally used in neurosurgery for tracking surgical tools and localize them with respect to the patient's 3D anatomy. The pre-operative diagnostic scan is used as a reference and is transferred onto the operative field during surgery.
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.
A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annulus of the MITRAL VALVE. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.
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.
