[The effect of one-stage repair of secondary nasolabial deformity and nasal septoplasty on nasal airway resistance].

[Article in Chinese]

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To assess the effect of one-stage repair of secondary nasolabial deformity and nasal septoplasty for cleft patients on nasal airway resistance (NAR).

METHOD:

Using active anterior rhinomanometry, NAR was measured in eighteen patients with cleft lip and palate who suffered form one-stage repair of secondary nasolabial deformity and septoplasty at per-and-post operation.

RESULT:

NAR was (0.664 +/- 0.200) kPa/(s x L) before operation, (0.304 +/- 0.180) kPa/(s x L) six months after operation, and (0.396 +/- 0.250) kPa/(s x L) twelve months after operation respectively. The differences are statistically significant (P < 0.01) between the NAR before and after operation. Subjective impression score of nasal patency was 7.5 +/- 1.5 before-operation, 2.1 +/- 2.0 after-operation for six months, 3.0 +/- 2.4 after-operation for twelve months. There are significant differences in the subjective impression score of nasal patency as well (P < 0.01).

CONCLUSION:

Correction of septal deformities play a very important role in the operation for secondary nasolabial deformity, which can decrease NAR and improve the subjective impression of nasal patency.
