IMPORTANCE Nasal airway obstruction is a common presenting symptom in otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery practices, and the potential for multiple contributing causes requires extensive evaluation. OBJECTIVE To develop a classification system for nasal obstruction using a subjective, validated quality-of-life instrument. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Retrospective study of patients' responses on the Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation (NOSE) instrument performed from July 2011… Expand
Unilateral Nasal Obstruction Causes Symptom Severity Scores Similar to Bilateral Nasal Obstruction.
TLDR
A retrospective chart review of prospectively collected data of patients with nasal obstruction presenting to a facial plastic and reconstructive surgery clinic for evaluation and treatment found that unilateral and bilateral septal deviation and internal nasal valve narrowing are predictive of having an increased NOSE score. Expand
Can Nose Scale Be Used as a Predictor of Successful Surgery in Patients Undergoing Septoplasty
TLDR
In this study it was found that there was significant improvement in nose scores which correlated with the improvement in nasal endoscopic findings, and can be used as a predictor of successful surgery/an adjunct to clinical examination and nasal endoscopy in patients undergoing septoplasty. Expand
Nasal Airway Obstruction: Prevalence and Anatomic Contributors
TLDR
A comparable prevalence of all three anatomic contributors to nasal airway obstruction was revealed across all patients and the subset with severe/extreme NOSE scores, highlighting the importance of evaluating the lateral nasal wall as a component of NAO treatment strategy. Expand
Comparison of Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation Scale with a Septoplasty Deformity Grading System for the Evaluation of Nasal Obstruction
TLDR
A septal deformity grading system (SDG) that accounts for anatomic location and grading of deformity severity and may be valuable when used in conjunction with subjective data gathered from the NOSE questionnaire is developed. Expand
Psychometric Evaluation of the Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation Scale for Pediatric Patients

  • Otolaryngology--head and neck surgery : official journal of American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery
  • 2019
TLDR
The Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation scale is a robust tool that may be incorporated as a subjective evaluation of severity of nasal obstruction among pediatric patients undergoing a septoplasty or functional septorhinoplasty. Expand
Evaluation of Improvement in Nasal Obstruction Following Nasal Valve Correction in Patients With a History of Failed Septoplasty.
TLDR
Surgical nasal valve correction demonstrated a significant reduction in nasal obstruction, as measured by a validated outcome measure, in patients for whom a previous septoplasty had failed. Expand
Reliability of a Standardized Nasal Anatomic Worksheet and Correlation With Subjective Nasal Airway Obstruction.
TLDR
Interrater reliability is high in both residents and attending staff for dynamic nasal airway examinations evaluating the internal and external nasal valves and for turbinate hypertrophy assessment and the total nasal anatomic score using a standardized worksheet correlates to patient-reported nasal-specific quality of life.

The Upper Airway Nasal Complex: Structural Contribution to Persistent Nasal Obstruction
  • Ryan A Williams, V. Patel, +5 authors S. Liu

  • Otolaryngology--head and neck surgery : official journal of American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery
  • 2019
TLDR
Several skeletal characteristics within the upper airway were significantly associated with persistent nasal obstruction, including acute maxillary angle, narrow maxillary width, and high arched palate, which may benefit from additional skeletal remodeling procedures such as maxillary expansion. Expand
Quality of Life in Patients with Nasal Septal Deviation After Septal Correction
TLDR
It can be concluded that Septal Correction as a surgical procedure is still relevant in today’s World for symptomatic betterment and for a healthier lifestyle. Expand
Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation Score to Guide Mask Selection in CPAP-Treated Obstructive Sleep Apnea

  • 2018
TLDR
The validated Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation (NOSE) score rated at CPAP initiation was associated with the type of mask used after 4 months of treatment, and could be a simple decision-making tool to guide the choice of mask duringCPAP initiation. Expand
