INTRODUCTION: Worldwide, hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, and human immunodeficiency virus are major health problems. Healthcare workers are at risk of transmitting blood-borne viruses, and surgeons have a higher risk of exposure to blood and higher rates of percutaneous injury than other healthcare workers. Septoplasty is among the 3 most commonly performed otolaryngological surgeries worldwide. OBJECTIVE: To determine the seroprevalence of Hepatitis B surface antigen, Hepatitis C virus antibody, and Human Immunodeficiency Virus antibody in patients undergoing septoplasty with and without turbinate surgery under general anesthesia, and to determine if preoperative testing should be performed in such patients...

Septal deviation constitutes an important component of both esthetic deformity and airway compromise in patients with cleft lip and palate (CLP). The posterior parts of the nasal septum presented greater deviation than the anterior parts in patients with complete unilateral CLP. Le Fort I down-fracture provides better access to the nasal septum than intranasal incision during rhinoplasty, especially to the posterior part. This study objectively and subjectively evaluated the nasal function after Le Fort I osteotomy combined with septoplasty in patients with complete unilateral CLP...

Septoplasty is one of the most common operations performed in otolaryngology and anterior nasal packing is done routinely to prevent postoperative bleeding, septal hematoma or nasal synechia. Currently, transseptal sutures have gained a broader application area, not only for preventing the complications such as septal hematoma and bleeding but also closing any accidental tears of septal mucosa and providing additional support for the cartilage pieces retained in septoplasty. We evaluated the quality of life of the patients in early postoperative period (in the first postoperative week), intranasal edema with endoscopic examination and the intranasal changes with acoustic rhinometry...

The popularity of endoscopes has been expanding not only in diagnostics but also in therapeutics. The traditional septal surgery also has come under the purview of endoscopic surgery in the last few decades. Endoscopic septoplasty has definitely many advantages over the conventional procedure. But the only disadvantage of endoscopic surgery is that it is a single handed technique as the other hand is used for holding the endoscope which may compromise the overall surgical time as the hemostasis and suctioning of the surgical field off the blood cannot be done simultaneously, in addition to the surgeon fatigue associated with holding the endoscope in the left hand...

Vasoconstrictors agents is used in septal surgery, in attempt to improve haemostasis and thereby improve the surgical field. We aimed to compare the effect of lignocaine with adrenaline injection and alone lignocaine injection with topical adrenalin on perioperative hemodynamic effect, hemorrhage and postoperative pain. Patients undergoing surgery were randomised into two groups: group I in whom infiltration was performed with lignocaine (2 %) with adrenaline (1:100,000), group II in whom infiltration was performed with lignocaine (2 %) injection with topical adrenalin application (1:10,000)...

Endoscopic septoplasty has become the favored approach for the treatment of a deviated septum. Careful septal dissection results in less bleeding, clear endoscopic view, shortened operative time, and fewer postoperative complications. We describe our 5-year experience of using an 8 French Frazier suction tube for submucosal dissection compared with the traditional septoplasty. A total of 434 patients who underwent septoplasty were recruited. The patients in the study were divided into two Groups 1 and 2 based on the employed surgical techniques to treat deviated nasal septum: traditional septoplasty (Group 1: 105 patients) and suction-tube-assisted endoscopic septoplasty (Group 2: 329 patients)...

The literature still lacks a review regarding PROs applied for rhinoplasty. Thus, we performed a systematic review of the literature to identify PROMs that assess patient satisfaction and quality of life after rhinoplasty. The aim of our study was to identify existing questionnaires and to summarize their development, psychometric properties, and content. A multi-step search of the web-based PubMed database from the National Library of Medicine was performed to identify PROMs that are designed to evaluate satisfaction and quality of life following rhinoplasty...

The objective is to use anatomical determinations of nasal septum shape and surface area in adults as a design basis for silastic septal splints of universal size and fit and offering maximum possible surface coverage. The objective is also to devise a method of securing the septal splints, so that surface pressure on septal mucosa is distributed as evenly as possible while not interfering with capillary perfusion. Nasal septum area was determined in 21 Caucasian body donors, and nasal septum thickness was measured in 20 CT scans...

A 33-day-old infant with obstructed cor triatriatum sinister and partial anomalous pulmonary venous drainage presented with respiratory distress and fever. Her suprasystemic pulmonary hypertension was relieved by opening the connection to the right atrium using balloon atrial septoplasty and septostomy, and to the inferior chamber using balloon dilation of a fenestration in the dividing membrane. This enabled extubation and discharge, with elective surgical repair at 2 months. To our knowledge, this is the youngest patient to receive a catheter intervention for obstructed cor triatriatum sinister, providing relief of pulmonary hypertension and postponement of surgical repair...
