THE EFFECTS OF ALAR BATTEN GRAFTS ON NASAL AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION AND NASAL STEROID USE IN PATIENTS WITH NASAL VALVE COLLAPSE AND NASAL ALLERGIC SYMPTOMS: A PROSPECTIVE STUDY

A hmed S. Sufyan, MD, and colleagues performed a prospective study to investigate the success of alar batten grafts in alleviating nasal obstruction in patients with nasal valve collapse. The study includes 126 patients undergoing placement of alar batten grafts with preoperative and postoperative scoring of nasal airway obstruction using a validated survey. In addition to nasal airway obstruction, the authors emphasize the effect of placement of alar batten grafts on nasal allergic symptoms and the need for intranasal steroids postoperatively. The reasons for improvement of nasal allergies and nasal obstruction following alar batten graft placement are discussed.
