Functional Nasal Surgery and Use of CPAP in OSAS Patients: Our Experience.

Indian J Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2018 Dec 31;70(4):559-565. Epub 2018 May 31.

Otorinolaringoiatria, Dipartimento di Biomedicina Sperimentale e Neuroscienze Cliniche, Policlinico Universitario P. Giaccone, Via del Vespro n°129, 90127 Palermo, Italy.

The surgical correction of nasal obstruction is definitely effective and recommended in patients with poor CPAP compliance, often secondary to the high pressures that need to be given in patients with nasal sub stenosis. For this reason, the objective of this study is the evaluation of the effectiveness and effects of the functional nose surgery on adherence to CPAP- therapy in patients (with moderate to severe OSAS with indication of ventilation therapy) poorly compliant with CPAP. The study was performed on a sample of 52 patients, 40 male and 12 female, aged between 29 and 72 years followed by the Otolaryngology Unit of the University Palermo in the period between January 2015 and January 2017.

[Anteromedial maxillectomy for improvement of nasal breathing : Advanced procedure in surgery of the lateral nasal wall].

HNO 2018 Nov 7. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Hals‑, Nasen‑, Ohrenkrankheiten, Kopf- und Halschirurgie, Ernst-Moritz-Arndt Universität, Greifswald, Deutschland.

The aim of classical surgical correction for nasal breathing impairment is to harmonically extend the physiological space in the nose by an operation of the nasal septum and inferior nasal turbinate. In this way the airflow character should be maintained and the mucosa protected in order not to endanger the respiratory function of the nose. This article presents an operative approach developed stepwise a few years ago in which the different operative steps are carried out depending on the individual anatomical situation and the underlying mucosal disease.

Decreased hospital charges and postoperative pain in septoplasty by application of enhanced recovery after surgery.

Ther Clin Risk Manag 2018 4;14:1871-1877. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

Department of Otolaryngology, Allergy Center, The Fifth Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University, Zhuhai, People's Republic of China,

Objective: Septoplasty has been the definitive treatment for nasal septum deviation, but its postoperative procedure may affect patients' quality of life. While new procedures in general surgery, such as enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS), can speed up postoperative rehabilitations to improve quality of life, it is rarely applied in the ear-nose-throat field. This study therefore aims to evaluate the application of ERAS in patients with nasal septum deviation as a means of improving perioperative outcomes. Read More

Septoplasty versus non-surgical management for nasal obstruction due to a deviated nasal septum in adults: A modelling study of cost-effectiveness.

Clin Otolaryngol 2019 Jan 25;44(1):53-62. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Department of Operating Rooms, Radboud University Medical Center, Radboud Institute for Health Sciences, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Objective: The objective of this study was to demonstrate how decision-analytic modelling can help to determine circumstances under which surgery may become cost-effective, using septoplasty as an example.

Design: We developed a decision-analytic model comparing septoplasty to non-surgical management for nasal obstruction in adults with a deviated septum. Based on the estimated cost difference between both treatments, we calculated the minimal (a) gain in quality-adjusted life-years, or (b) reduction in productivity losses needed for septoplasty to be cost-effective.
