Abstract [en]

We present the fabrication and clinical use of a custom-made nasal septal silicone button that can be inserted transnasally into a perforation of the nasal septum by the physician as an office procedure, or by the patients themselves in their home. Questionnaire and retrospective chart review were used to evaluate the efficacy of this prosthesis as treatment of disturbing symptoms from nasal septal perforation. The study included 41 patients (27 women) with a nasal septal perforation. The follow-up time ranged from 1 to 9 years. Symptoms investigated were nasal obstruction, crusting, feeling of dryness, pain, epistaxis, and whistling from the nose. The degree of experienced symptoms was estimated on a VAS-scale. The questionnaire was answered by 37 of the 41 patients. Fourteen patients were still using their button at the follow-up. Treatment with the prosthesis greatly diminished all the investigated symptoms. Also, use of the silicone button resulted in an improved quality of life. No case of infection was noted in connection with use of the silicone prosthesis.
