The objective of the present study was to evaluate the influence of anterior nasal packing on the physical health condition and the quality of life of the patients in the early postoperative period following septoplastic surgery and to propose an alternative to the anterior nasal packing procedure. The study included 90 patients divided into three groups. Those of the first group underwent endoscopic septoplasty, the patients of the second group were managed by standard septoplastic surgery, and the patients of group 3 were given treatment with the use of modified septoplasty including the application of a fibrin sealant as an alternative to nasal tampons...

The curvature of the nasal septum (NS) is one of the most widespread deformations of the facial skeleton. The objective of the present study was to substantiate the principles of and develop the rationale for the surgical correction and conservative treatment of this condition based on the morphological features of various types of deflection of the nasal septum. We have undertaken the morphological analysis of the osseous and cartilaginous structures determining the type and the shape of the curvature of the nasal septum together with the clinical analysis of different morphological variants of the deflection of the nasal septum making use of the R...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Timing of pediatric nasal surgery has always been a controversial topic. Concern over disrupting growing parts of the face and causing permanent facial deformity has led to a primarily conservative approach. Many surgeons feel that it is prudent to wait until the patient has completed nasal growth after puberty to pursue nasal surgery. RECENT FINDINGS: Recently, this attitude has been challenged with evidence that not only is nasal surgery in the pediatric age group not a detriment to facial growth, but failure to correct significant nasal deformity may actually cause dysmorphic facial growth secondary to obligate mouth breathing...

Mucociliary clearance represents a host defense mechanism of airways that can be compromised by various pathologic conditions, such as nasal septal deviation. Although septoplasty can resolve obstruction, it impairs mucociliary clearance in the immediate postoperative period. Clinical studies have demonstrated how hyaluronic acid can interfere with this function. Our study aims to provide evidence of a therapeutic effect of hyaluronic acid on nasal mucosa recovery after septoplasy. Sixty-five patients underwent septoplasty...

Septoplasty is a frequently performed procedure with mostly minor complications. Nevertheless, it may lead to serious complications.The authors present a 29-year-old patient admitted to their hospital 10 days after septoplasty in another institution. He suffered a total loss of vision immediately after the surgery.High-resolution computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a direct trauma of the optic canal and an inflamed and edematous optic nerve. Even though a successful endoscopic optic nerve was performed, the patient's loss of vision did not improve after the surgery...

Chlorhexidine is an antiseptic and disinfectant used in surgical and clinical practice since 1954 and is available in aqueous or alcoholic solutions 0.5%-4.0% and has a broad-spectrum activity. Despite their widespread use, allergic reactions with chlorhexidine are rarely reported. We describe a case of anaphylaxis with chlorhexidine during a septoplasty, turbinectomy, and maxillary sinusectomy. The patient presented with periorbital edema, hives, hypotension, and wheezing. Immediately after the diagnosis of anaphylaxis promethazine, hydrocortisone, and epinephrine were administered with immediate clinical improvement...

Russell W H Kridel, Angela K Sturm
Dorsal augmentation grafts are used to reconstruct and raise the nasal dorsum in patients with dorsal saddling due to trauma, infection, or previous nasal surgery, as well as in patients with a narrow, congenitally low, and/or wide dorsum. Alloplastic implants and various biomaterials are available for grafting, each with advantages and disadvantages. Although autologous septal cartilage is a preferable and often convenient source of cartilage, it is frequently not sufficient for large volume dorsal augmentation, nor is it available in patients who have had septoplasty, infection, previous rhinoplasty with grafting, or significant trauma...
