Study of Mitomycin C and Nasal Splint to Treat Nasal Synechiae

2014-07-23 21:13:32 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study evaluates whether Mitomycin C is an effective alternative to septal splints in the treatment of nasal synechiae.

Description

Nasal synechiae is an important cause for the failure of many a nasal surgery. Septal splints have been widely used for the treatment of nasal synechiae, but are associated significant morbidity until removal. To the best of our knowledge there are no studies in literature comparing Mitomycin C with septal splints as an atraumatic alternative in the treatment of nasal synechiae. This is a preliminary study taken up to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of Mitomycin C in the treatment of nasal synechiae.

Clinical Trials [1289 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

The Effectiveness of Nasal Corticosteroids Versus Placebo in Nasal Obstruction in Patients With Nasal Septal Deviation

The purpose of this project is to determine if intranasal corticosteroids have an effect on nasal obstruction in patients with nasal septal deviation.

Nasal Septum Deviation May Affect Facial Morphologic Parameters.

The aim of the study is to evaluate the relationship between the direction and degree of nasal septal deviation with nasal bone morphology , along with factors such as age and gender.

A Clinical Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Surgical Material for Nasal Septoplasty

The purpose of this clinical trial is to evaluate safety and efficacy of TnR mesh for patients who need nasal septoplasty for septal deformity with nasal obstruction.

Correlation of the Objective and Subjective Measures of the Nasal Obstruction Before and After Surgery of the Nasal Septum

Nasal obstruction is a very subjective sensation but it's also a frequent reason of consultation. Two specific questionnaire NOSE and RhinoQOL were validated; but rhinomanometry value is s...

Nasal Splint and Endoscopic Nasal Septal Repair Surgery

Septoplasty is one of the most performed surgeries in rhinology as a solo procedure, or in combination with sinus surgery. The procedure for septoplasty and postoperative management has ev...

Effect of early correction of nasal septal deformity in unilateral cleft lip and palate on inferior turbinate hypertrophy and nasal patency.

A relatively neglected aspect of cleft lip nasal deformity is the effect of septal deviation and inferior turbinate hypertrophy (ITH) on the functional airway. In particular, ITH in the noncleft side ...

The lack of nasal tip support resulting in poor protection and projection of the nose is a common cause of nasal obstruction and cosmetic impairment. Although septal cartilage is preferred for restora...

Schwannoma is an uncommon tumor of nerve sheath that arises from any peripheral, cranial, or autonomic nerve. Only 4% of head and neck schwannomas originate from the sinonasal tract, and a finding of ...

Acellular Human Dermal Allograft as a Graft for Nasal Septal Perforation Reconstruction.

Nasal septal perforations pose a troubling source of morbidity for patients and a difficult problem for the Otolaryngologist. Multiple surgical techniques have been tried with inconsistent success. Pr...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Diagnostic measurement of the nose and its cavity through acoustic reflections. Used to measure nasal anatomical landmarks, nasal septal deviation, and nasal airway changes in response to allergen provocation tests (NASAL PROVOCATION TESTS).

The partition separating the two NASAL CAVITIES in the midplane. It is formed by the SEPTAL NASAL CARTILAGE, parts of skull bones (ETHMOID BONE; VOMER), and membranous parts.

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.

An opening or hole in the NASAL SEPTUM that is caused by TRAUMA, injury, drug use, or pathological process.

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.
