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.

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.
