Quality of Life Study About the Role of Turbinectomy in Rhinoseptoplasty
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||deviated nasal septum, nasal septal defect, nasal septum, irregular|
|Treatments||rhinoseptoplasty, partial turbinectomy, endoscopic partial turbinectomy|
|Sponsor||Hospital de Clinicas de Porto Alegre|
|Start date||March 2014|
|End date||March 2015|
|Trial size||50 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02231216, 130516|
Research Question: Performing partial turbinectomy associated with rhinoseptoplasty is responsible for an increase in quality of life related to nasal obstruction when compared to no intervention in rhinoseptoplasty inferior turbinate?
- Population: patients eligible for functional rhinoseptoplasty and / or aesthetic
- Intervention: surgery, turbinectomy of inferior turbinates
- Comparison: the absence of intervention in inferior turbinates
- Primary endpoint: Quality of life related to nasal obstruction
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
|Masking||single blind (subject)|
Quality of life related to nasal obstruction
time frame: 3 months
Male or female participants from 6 months up to 90 years old.
- Eligible patients to rhinoseptoplasty
- Patients who agreed to participate
- Presence of symptoms of nasal obstruction in the absence of septal deviation, poor support of the nasal tip or clamping of the nasal valve;
- Presence of hypertrophic and obstructive inferior turbinates;
- Presence of sinonasal tumors;
- Patients undergoing treatment of other concomitant rhinoplasty entities such as inflammatory sinus pathology, adenoid hypertrophy, septal perforation, otoplasty and blepharoplasty.
