Efficacy of an Intranasal Stent on Nasal Obstruction at Night

2020-01-17 10:48:50 | BioPortfolio


This study aims to demonstrate a decrease with normalization of nasal resistance in the forward decubital position and with an intra-nasal stent in patients with nasal obstruction.


All patients consulting for nasal obstruction at night and who have functional nasal test with pathological resistance in decubitus position are included.

Functional nasal test (non invasive tests) will be performed before and after intranasal introduction of a stent: anterior rhinomanometry to measure nasal function by the measure of resistance and acoustic rhinometry to measure the geometry of nasal fossa by the measure of minimal sectional cross area sitting, after 30 minutes of decubitus then new measurements with a stent in decubitus position in each nostril .

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Any hindrance to the passage of air into and out of the nose. The obstruction may be unilateral or bilateral, and may involve any part of the NASAL CAVITY.

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 disease characterized by the chronic, progressive spread of lesions from New World cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by species of the L. braziliensis complex to the nasal, pharyngeal, and buccal mucosa some time after the appearance of the initial cutaneous lesion. Nasal obstruction and epistaxis are frequent presenting symptoms.

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.

Application of allergens to the nasal mucosa. Interpretation includes observation of nasal symptoms, rhinoscopy, and rhinomanometry. Nasal provocation tests are used in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity, including RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, SEASONAL.
