Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Patients suffering from upper respiratory disease such as chronic nasal congestion, sneezing, nasal discharge, and epistaxis invite complete evaluation of their paired nasal cavities. Thorough assessment of these cavities employs sundry diagnostic procedures that enable the investigating clinician to characterize the internal structures of the nasal cavities. After the conscious patient undergoes a complete physical examination, a gross assessment of its external nasal structures is established and areas of physical asymmetry are noted. A working anatomic knowledge of these asymmetric foci helps to guide the next diagnostic steps. The patient is then placed under general anesthesia, during which, in list order, imaging studies, rhinoscopy, and nasal biopsy or foreign body retrieval, are performed.
