  • Clinical Consensus Statement: Septoplasty with or without Inferior Turbinate Reduction. [Review]
  • Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2015; 153(5):708-20OH
  • Han JK, Stringer SP, … Nnacheta LC
  • CONCLUSIONS: This clinical consensus statement was developed by and for otolaryngologists and is intended to promote appropriate and, when possible, evidence-based care for patients undergoing septoplasty with or without inferior turbinate reduction. A complete definition of septoplasty with or without inferior turbinate reduction was first developed, and additional statements were subsequently produced and evaluated addressing diagnosis, medical management prior to septoplasty, and surgical considerations, as well as the appropriate role of perioperative, postoperative, and adjuvant procedures, in addition to outcomes. Additionally, a series of clinical statements were developed, such as "Computed tomography scan may not accurately demonstrate the degree of septal deviation," "Septoplasty can assist delivery of intranasal medications to the nasal cavity," "Endoscopy can be used to improve visualization of posterior-based septal deviation during septoplasty," and "Quilting sutures can obviate the need for nasal packing after septoplasty." It is anticipated that the application of these principles will result in decreased variations in the care of septoplasty patients and an increase in the quality of care.
  • Chronic nasal dysfunction in children: Allergic rhinitis? Infectious? What to do if neither? [Review]
  • Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2015; 23(6):491-8CO
  • Wei JL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Chronic nasal symptoms are common in childhood despite daily treatment using intranasal steroid, antihistamines, and/or leukotriene receptor antagonist therapies. Diet and dietary habit history should be included during evaluation and differential diagnosis as excessive dairy and sugar may contribute to chronic symptoms. Children who fail medical therapy for persistent nasal symptoms, allergic or not, should be referred and considered for outfracture of inferior turbinates and inferior turbinoplasty. Turbinate reduction procedures have demonstrated significant improvement in all domains of SinoNasal Quality of Life as measured by 'SN-5' survey.
  • Utility of Inferior Turbinoplasty for the Treatment of Nasal Obstruction in Children: A 10-Year Review. [Journal Article]
  • JAMA Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2015; 141(10):901-4JO
  • Arganbright JM, Jensen EL, … Chan KH
  • CONCLUSIONS: Inferior turbinoplasty showed overall utility and was safe and effective in the treatment of nasal obstruction in children for whom medical management had failed. No differences between surgical techniques were found in patient satisfaction, improvement of nasal patency, and recurrence, likely related to sample size. More than half of the patients continued to use medical therapy postoperatively, suggesting that inferior turbinate hypertrophy should not be considered solely as a surgical disease. Allergic rhinitis was identified as a significant comorbidity.
  • How I Do It: Medial Flap Inferior Turbinoplasty. [Journal Article]
  • Am J Rhinol Allergy 2015 Jul-Aug; 29(4):314-5AJ
  • Barham HP, Knisely A, … Sacks R
  • CONCLUSIONS: The medial flap inferior turbinoplasty provides consistent, robust results. Long-term relief of obstructive symptoms without additional risk of complication is expected with this procedure.
  • Applied Endoscopic Anatomical Evaluation of the Lacrimal Sac. [Journal Article]
  • Iran J Otorhinolaryngol 2015; 27(80):213-7IJ
  • Hashemi SM, Berjis N, … Fereidani Samani A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Given the differences between the various studies conducted in order to evaluate the position of the lacrimal sac, studies such as this can help to better identify the position of lacrimal sac during surgery based on ethnic differences. In addition, these studies can help novice surgeons to better navigate in a surgical scenario.
