OBJECTIVE: To compare the long term effectiveness of radiofrequency thermal ablation with that of surgical turbinoplasty, a prospective, randomized, blinded clinical study was conducted. METHODS: Eighty six patients suffering from nasal obstruction due to bilateral inferior turbinate hypertrophy were enrolled. Forty four patients were operated by radiofrequency ablation, while 42 underwent surgical turbinoplasty. The outcomes of both techniques were compared in terms of symptoms using visual analogue score (VAS) and endoscopic scores...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of our study was to compare Merocel (Merocel Hemox 10 cm) and BNP (biodegradable nasopore) during a septoturbinoplasty procedure in terms of efficiency and patient comfort. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We carried out a retrospective review of 72 patients who had undergone septoturbinoplasty between January 2015 and January 2016. Each group, packed with BNP or Merocel Hemox 10 cm was composed of 36 patients. A standard visual analogue scale ranging from zero (no symptoms) to 10 (the most severe symptoms) was used to assess subjective symptoms...

The objective of the present study was to investigate the functional consequences of aesthetic rhinoplasty. The authors compared the results of corrective surgery depending on the surgical approach, the extent of the intervention, and the operative techniques employed based on large enough set of clinical observations obtained during the treatment of 253 patients. It was shown that the post-rhinoplastic difficulties in nasal breathing experienced by some patients occurred significantly more frequently after the use of the «endonasal» surgical approach than following «open» rhinoplasty (75% vs 68%)...

Importance: Chronic nasal congestion often persists in children despite empirical treatment using intranasal corticosteroids, systemic antihistamines, and/or leukotriene receptor antagonists. Symptoms are often reported even with negative results of skin or blood allergy testing. Inferior turbinoplasty has been effective in adults and children, but outfracture of inferior turbinates in children is rarely reported, as is use of validated quality-of-life measures to quantify improvements after intervention...

Sung Jae Heo, Jung-Soo Kim
Coblation-assisted turbinoplasty is an effective and safe method to manage nasal obstruction. The common complications of the procedure are pain, bleeding, and crust formation. Since coblation does not generate high heat, direct burn injuries by coblation have been rarely reported. Nevertheless, the authors experienced a skin burn injury in a patient, which is the first patient related to coblation-assisted turbinoplasty. Therefore, surgeons need to be careful and prepared for an inadvertent heat injury at the site that touches the coblation device...

Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis (DISH) can cause ossification of ligaments and may affect the spine. We report a case of obstructive sleep apnea in a patient with significant upper airway narrowing secondary to cervical DISH. This patient had an initial apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) of 145 events/hour and was treated with uvulopalatopharyngoplasty, genial tubercle advancement, hyoid suspension, septoplasty, inferior turbinoplasties, and radiofrequency ablations to the tongue base which reduced his AHI to 40 events/hour...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: Adhesions are the most common complication after nasal surgery and revision. 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) reduces various adhesions and epithelial growth related complications. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of 5-flurouracil application in the nasal cavity after a multi-procedure nasal surgery in term of complications frequency. MATERIALS AND METHODOLOGY: Institutional ethical approval was granted and a double-blinded prospective clinical trial was conducted to study the effect of 5-fu on post-operative complications...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To examine whether the addition of turbinoplasty to tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy (T&A) increases the risk of postoperative complications. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study of children (18 years old and younger) who underwent tonsillectomy and/or turbinoplasty between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2015 using the 2016 Pediatric Health Information System administrative database METHODS: Patients were divided into three groups: 1) T&A and turbinoplasty, 2) T&A alone, and 3) turbinoplasty alone...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Septal deviation and hypertrophic inferior turbinates are a frequent cause of nasal breathing disorders. The goal of this study was to prove the effectiveness and safety of three current turbinoplasty techniques. STUDY DESIGN: This is a prospective, three-arm, single-blinded, single-center, randomized controlled trial. METHODS: Sixty patients were randomly assigned to either anterior turbinoplasty (ATP) (n = 20), radiofrequency ablation (RFA) (n = 19; Celon Pro Breath), or novel submucous radial diode laser ablation (DLA) (n = 21; ELVeS Radial PainLess, wavelength = 1,470 nm), each in combination with standard septoplasty...

INTRODUCTION: Evaluation of surgery outcome measured by patient satisfaction or quality of life is very important, especially in plastic surgery. There is increasing interest in self-reporting outcomes evaluation in plastic surgery. OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was to determine patient satisfaction in regard to nose appearance and function with the use of a validated questionnaire, before and after rhinoplasty surgery. METHODS: A prospective study was realized at a tertiary centre...

BACKGROUND: The nasal mucosa plays a key role in conditioning the inhaled air and in regulating the immune response. These functions led many authors to recommend mucosal sparing techniques for the surgical management of inferior turbinate hypertrophy. However, the histological modifications of chronic diseases retain the inflammatory activity and prevent the nasal physiology restoration. It has been proved that the basal cells of the nasal mucosa are able to proliferate and to repair after cold-knife incision...

Rhinoplasty is one of the most common and challenging cosmetic procedures. One of the complications of rhinoplasty associated with dissatisfaction is nasal obstruction, which is often due to narrowing of the nasal valve area. Application of certain procedures such as turbinoplasty can prevent and correct this problem. This study aim was to investigate the effect of inferior turbinoplasty in reduction of airflow resistance and nasal obstruction. Using active anterior rhinomanometry, nasal airflow was measured in 50 patients who underwent cosmetic rhinoplasty and bilateral turbinoplasty before and 6 months after surgery...

Surgical management of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea is indicated when a surgically correctable abnormality is believed to be the source of the problem. Many patients opt for surgical treatment after noninvasive forms of treatment have been proven ineffective or difficult to tolerate. With increasing frequency, functional rhinoplasty, septoplasty, turbinoplasty, palatal surgery, and orthognathic surgery are being used in the management of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Plastic surgeons' experience with aesthetic nasal surgery, nasal reconstruction, palatal surgery, and craniofacial surgery puts them at the forefront of performing surgery for snoring and sleep apnea...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

BACKGROUND: Hyaluronic acid (HA) plays a significant role in tissue repair of mucosal surfaces and, consequently, in surgical injury remodelling of nasal mucosa. OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of high-molecular-weight HA administered by aerosol on the morphofunctional recovery of ciliated cells damaged by surgical trauma. METHODS: A single-blind, prospective, randomized trial was carried out with 94 patients who were randomly assigned, after endoscopic turbinoplasty, either to treatment with nasal saline solution irrigation (control group, n = 47) or to treatment with nasal douches based on high concentration (9 mg) and high-molecular-weight sodium hyaluronate (active treatment group, n = 47)...

INTRODUCTION: Turbinoplasty is a procedure that aims to reduce the size of the inferior turbinate through exuberant bone removal with high mucosal preservation. The procedure is recommended for patients with or without allergic rhinitis and those showing irreversible hypertrophy of inferior turbinates. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of inferior turbinoplasty for obstructive and non-obstructive symptoms in patients with or without allergic rhinitis. METHODS: Prospective study with 57 patients who underwent inferior turbinoplasty...
