This cadaver study measures the difference in lateral crural strength and resilience after performing lateral crural overlay procedures using 2 different techniques.
This medical record review evaluates whether spreader flaps are equivalent to spreader grafts in correcting internal nasal valve collapse in the absence of simultaneous dorsal hump reduction in a series of patients undergoing open septorhinoplasty.
This Viewpoint examines misunderstandings of flow mechanisms through the nasal gateway.
This commentary discusses a narrative review published in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery that summarized the efficacy of over-the-counter mechanical nasal dilators to improve airflow through the internal nasal valve.
This cross-sectional study evaluates the interrater reliability between staff surgeons and otolaryngology residents using a worksheet-based standardized nasal examination and identifies specific examination findings correlated with the Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation quality-of-life score.
This study of patients undergoing septorhinoplasty examines whether intraoperative endoscopic suction–assisted evaluation of the internal nasal valve is a useful technique to assess internal nasal valve area and function.
This multicenter cohort study compares improvement in nasal obstruction symptoms in patients undergoing functional and aesthetic-functional rhinoplasty.
This study of patients undergoing surgical correction of nasal valve stenosis reports favorable results with the intranasal flaring suture technique.
This cohort study evaluates the effectiveness of cephalic crural turn-in maneuver and costal cartilage lateral crural strut grafts for correcting external nasal valve dysfunction and reports both techniques are functionally and cosmetically viable options.
This observational outcomes study evaluated the change in disease-specific quality of life and determined whether identifiable anatomical risk factors are more common in patients who undergo nasal valve correction after failed septoplasty.
This review of functional and aesthetic outcomes of septorhinoplasty for lateral crural malposition reports improvement at 1 year among patients treated by a single surgeon and no difference among distinct types of skin thickness.
Lindsay and coauthors highlight the significance of nasal valve dysfunction in patients with flaccid facial paralysis, demonstrate a quantitative benefit in disease-specific quality of life after fascia late sling placement for external nasal valve compromise, and suggest an updated treatment algorithm.
This observational before-and-after study reports symptom improvement in patients with external nasal valve dysfunction undergoing reconstructive rhinoplasty.
Gassner and coauthors introduce the stairstep graft, a new concept in nasal valve surgery by lateralization of the lateral anchoring point for the alar strut graft or other lateral functional grafts.
Shadfar et al use a cadaveric model to determine the effect of suture and cartilage graft techniques on nasal airflow using computational fluid dynamic (CFD) analysis.
