Abstract

Nasal stenosis subsequent to trauma is a common phenomenon which leads to difficulty in breathing and thus affecting the patient’s life expectation. Even after surgical correction, a nasal stent is needed to hold the valve area. This article presents a simple method for the fabrication of a customized nasal stent for a patient with post-traumatic unilateral nasal stenosis. The method yields a surgical stent that fits accurately into place, allows nasal breathing and is retentive and esthetic.
