Development of a severity classification system for subjective nasal obstruction.
The proposed classification system will improve patient care by providing a framework for the severity of their symptoms and helping them understand potential treatment effects and allow physicians to better understand the study patient population and the effect of treatment on each severity class.

Assessment of Persistent and Prolonged Postoperative Opioid Use Among Patients Undergoing Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
Given the significant risk of persistent opioid use after plastic and reconstructive procedures, it is imperative to develop best practices guidelines for postoperative opioid prescription practices in this population of patients. Expand
Nasal airway preservation using the autospreader technique: analysis of outcomes using a disease-specific quality-of-life instrument.
Midvault reconstruction using the autospreader graft may help prevent postoperative nasal obstruction due to midvault collapse and combining this procedure with dorsal reduction in functional rhinoplasty patients with traditional airway reconstruction techniques is effective in improving nasal airway function as measured by a patient-based, disease-specific quality-of-life instrument.

Systematic review and meta‐analysis of venous thromboembolism in otolaryngology–head and neck surgery
The purpose of this study was to present a systematic review and meta‐analysis of the data on venous thromboembolism (VTE) and pulmonary embolism in otolaryngology–head and neck surgery (OHNS). Expand

The anterior septal reconstruction technique is effective in improving both nasal airway function and aesthetics in patients with severe septonasal deviation and is measured with a validated quality-of-life instrument. Expand
Porous high-density polyethylene for orbital reconstruction.
The use of PHDPE resulted in a low complication rate and excellent functional and cosmetic reconstructive results, and the clinical practice has changed to minimize the use of autologous graft material, thereby eliminating donor site morbidity in cases involving orbital reconstruction. Expand
Intraoperative angiography using laser-assisted indocyanine green imaging to map perfusion of forehead flaps.
This is the first study attempting to quantify forehead flap perfusion from the supratrochlear artery and recipient bed and data obtained suggest evidence of vascular in-growth 1 week following flap transfer. Expand
Measurements of orbital volume change using computed tomography in isolated orbital blowout fractures.
Consistent volume measurements can be obtained using different 3-D image analysis programs and can ensure a good surgical result and thereby decrease the incidence of enophthalmos. Expand
Spreader Flaps Do Not Change Early Functional Outcomes in Reduction Rhinoplasty: A Randomized Control Trial
Spreader flap is an attractive technique in preserving the middle vault in nasal plastic surgery, however, its effect needs more evaluation. Expand
Impact of Dorsal Preservation Rhinoplasty Versus Dorsal Hump Resection on the Internal Nasal Valve: a Quantitative Radiological Study
Neither the conventional hump resection nor the LD DPR technique reduced the INV dimensions, however, the PD preservation technique significantly reducedThe INV dimensions. Expand
