Evaluation of effect of septoplasty on nasal mucosal dryness using intranasal Schirmer test.

Acta Otolaryngol 2022 Jun 24:1-4. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Ataturk University Faculty of Medicine, Erzurum, Turkey.

Background: Septal deviation causes the air entering the nose to encounter resistance and leads to turbulent flow formation by disrupting laminar air flow. In the literature, the Schirmer test has been recommended to evaluate the moistening of the nasal mucosa.

Aims/objectives: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the degree of nasal humidification using the intranasal schirmer test in patients with septal deviation and to reveal changes in mucosal dryness and humidity in both nasal cavities following septoplasty surgery. Read More

Comparison of Trans-septal Suturing Technique With Polyvinyl Alcohol Sponge-Based Nasal Packing for Hemostasis in Septoplasty.

Cureus 2022 May 20;14(5):e25161. Epub 2022 May 20.

Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi, IND.

Introduction Despite the theoretical advantages of bleeding control, there is increased morbidity in postoperative pain, sleep disturbance, allergy, toxic shock syndrome, and mucosal injury with the nasal packing in septoplasty procedure for deviated nasal septum. Trans-septal suturing after septoplasty has been advocated as an effective alternative to conventional nasal packing. The current study aims to compare the frequency of subjective symptoms, such as postoperative nasal pain, nasal bleeding, postnasal drip, sleep disturbance, dysphagia, headache, and epiphora between the trans-septal suturing technique and nasal packing in septoplasty surgery.

Cardiac MRI for Fontan candidates after intrapulmonary-artery septation.

Cardiol Young 2022 Jun 8:1-3. Epub 2022 Jun 8.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Children's Hospital, Shizuoka City, Shizuoka, Japan.

Intrapulmonary-artery septoplasty may be effective for establishing two-lung Fontan circulation in patients with unilateral pulmonary circulation. However, evaluation of the function of each lung by conventional modalities can be challenging in these patients due to differing sources of blood flow to the left and right lungs following intrapulmonary-artery septation. Herein, we report a case in which two-lung Fontan circulation was successfully achieved after using cardiac MRI along with conventional modalities to evaluate pulmonary circulation. Read More

Ferreira-Ishida Technique: Spare Roof Technique B. Step-by-Step Guide to Preserving the Bony Cap While Dehumping.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2022 05 26;149(5):901e-904e. Epub 2022 Apr 26.

From the Centro Hospitalar Universitário do Porto, Instituto de Ciências Biomédias Abel Salazar, Universidade do Porto, Hospital da Luz Arrábida; and Plastic Surgery Division, Faculty of Medicine, University of São Paulo.

Summary: For V-shaped nasal bones, the authors consider that ostectomy of the dorsal keystone area can be avoided, and this has led to the development of a new preservation technique: the spare roof technique B (or Ferreira-Ishida technique), where the bony cap is preserved. It includes six main steps, as follows. Step 1, draw on the surface of the skin the desired dorsal brow-tip aesthetic lines, the pyriform aperture, the rhinion, and the amount of triangular bone that has to be taken out to allow pushing-down the bony cap, and the transversal line in the beginning of the nasal hump.

Introduction: Permanent perioperative vision loss is caused by ischemic optic neuropathy (ION) or central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO). Whereas diffusion restriction of the optic nerve (ON) on brain magnetic resonance imaging has been previously reported in perioperative posterior ION (PION), there are no reports of ON diffusion restriction in patients diagnosed with acute perioperative CRAO. We present a case of perioperative CRAO to highlight this neuroimaging finding for neuroradiologists and neurologists. Read More
