One of the most difficult aspects in rhinoplasty is resolving and preventing functional compromise of the nasal valve area reliably. The nasal valves are crucial for the individual breathing competence of the nose. Structural and functional elements contribute to this complex system: the nasolabial angle, the configuration and stability of the alae, the function of the internal nasal valve, the anterior septum symmetrically separating the bilateral airways and giving structural and functional… Expand
Spreader Graft for Severe Deviation of Nasal Septum with Obstruction of the Internal Nasal Valve: Clinical and Functional Results.
TLDR
The use of spreader grafts, with endonasal approach, as nasal septum's tutors improved perpendicular septal deviations with compromise of the INV (area II), reaching an effective functional improvement in the nasal airway, with low rate of complications. Expand
Septal Surgery in the Crooked Nose
TLDR
A graduated surgical approach was adopted to allow correction of the dorsal and caudal deviations of the nasal septum without weakening its structural support to the nasal dorsum or nasal tip. Expand
Spreader Graft Placement: An Effective Procedure for Alleviation of Internal Nasal Valve Collapse.
TLDR
In patients with nasal obstruction associated with INV involvement, spreader grafting provides rapid relief of nasal obstruction and associated symptoms, does not cause any appreciable broadening, and provides a high degree of patient satisfaction. Expand
The Anterior Spreader Flap: A Minimally Invasive Alternative to the Auto Spreader Flap in the Treatment of Patients with Nasal Valve Dysfunction
TLDR
The Anterior Spreader Flap technique can be considered a safe, minimally invasive spreader flap technique in patients with nasal valve dysfunction caused by septum deviation and can easily be combined with other nasal surgical techniques. Expand
Extracorporeal Septoplasty Combined With Valve Surgery in Rhinoplasty Patients
TLDR
Application of extracorporeal septoplasty in combination with spreader grafts in patients with nasal valve dysfunction not only enables nasal respiration but also supports aesthetic appearance. Expand
Versatile Applications of Different Septal Correction Techniques in Rhinoplasty
TLDR
Both techniques were effective in the management of moderate to severe septaldeviation provided that the internal valve was constructed with spreader grafts, the authors concluded. Expand
Are Grafts Necessary in Rhinoplasty? Cartilage Flaps with Cartilage-Saving Rhinoplasty Concept
TLDR
The tongue-in-groove technique cannot be used in patients who do not need caudal excision, and cartilage flaps can be inadequate in some patients who may need additional grafts. Expand
Treating Internal Nasal Valve Collapse: The Intranasal Valvuloplasty
TLDR
A simple yet effective technique to resolve obstruction of the internal nasal valve, called the intranasal valvuloplasty/valvulopexy, which is an effective and straightforward approach to nasal valve collapse either alone or in conjunction with other rhinological procedures. Expand
The Modified Sliding Alar Cartilage Flap: A Novel Way to Preserve the Internal Nasal Valve as Illustrated by Three-Dimensional Modeling.
TLDR
The sliding alar cartilage surgical technique is a simple technique allowing tip definition while maintaining nasal airway function by preserving the crucial anatomical scroll area in patients undergoing tip-plasty with alar reduction. Expand
Assessment of Nasal Function After Tip Surgery With a Cephalic Hinged Flap of the Lateral Crura: A Randomized Clinical Trial.
TLDR
The improvement noted in breathing quality by VAS and AR suggests that a hinged flap may be effective in reconstructing the internal nasal valve. Expand

Septoplasty: Correcting the Nasal Valve
TLDR
This work addresses the bony and cartilaginous septum just above this region at the level of the cartILaginous and bony nasal vault, resulting in a completely free sePTum inferiorly and in the valve region. Expand
The Incompetent External Nasal Valve: Pathophysiology and Treatment in Primary and Secondary Rhinoplasty
TLDR
The external nasal valve may be a substantial cause of nasal airway obstruction in some patients; its pathophysiology and treatment are discussed in primary and secondary rhinoplasty. Expand

TLDR
This work proposes that the true locus and solution to the problem of nasal valve collapse lies lateral to the nasal valve angle in the fibroareolar tissue that connects the lateral aspect of the lateral crus to the bony pyriform aperture. Expand
Bending of the upper lateral cartilages for nasal valve collapse.
TLDR
This method reconstitutes the normal anatomy of the INV, reestablishes stiffness or resistance of the nasal side walls so that they do not bend inwardly with inspiration, improves the airflow at this area, and avoids postoperative nasal valve stenosis in functional-cosmetic rhinoplasty cases that require considerable nasal hump reduction.

Mini Spreader Grafts: A New Technique Associated with Reshaping of the Nasal Tip
  • A. Boccieri
  • Medicine
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery
  • 2005
TLDR
Although small in size, the mini spreader grafts are very important in functional terms in that they restore a physiologic angle in the area of the internal nasal valve between the septum and the upper lateral cartilages. Expand
Subtotal Reconstruction of the Nasal Septum Using a Conchal Reshaped Graft
TLDR
A surgical technique for reshaping of the conchal cartilage is described that makes it possible to obtain a practically straight conchal graft that will retain its stability over time with no risk of subsequent modification. Expand
Nasal Valve Suspension: An Improved, Simplified Technique for Nasal Valve Collapse
TLDR
The modified technique is simpler, safer, and equally effective and is based on the use of a soft-tissue bone-anchor system that provides a simplified support of the valve area to the orbital rim. Expand
Endonasal spreader graft placement as treatment for internal nasal valve insufficiency: no need to divide the upper lateral cartilages from the septum.
TLDR
The endonasal technique presented herein is less invasive and can be used in conjunction with other procedures aimed at improving nasal patency. Expand
[The history of nasal valve surgery].
TLDR
Among the wide range of techniques mentioned in the literature, the authors prefer the anatomical, surgical classification by Zijilker and Quaedvilieg as it incorporates the philosophy the rhinologist must keep in mind when aiming to restore both nasal functions and esthetics through different, specific techniques.

Surgery for the dysfunctional nasal valve. Cadaveric analysis and clinical outcomes.
TLDR
The combination of flaring sutures and spreader grafts has the greatest impact on the cadaveric nasal airway and clinical review confirms significant improvement in nasal function using this combination technique. Expand
