BACKGROUND The most typical symptoms of patients with nasal septal perforation (SP) are crusting and recurrent nosebleed. The objective of the study was to determine the influence of SP on intranasal temperature profile and airflow patterns during inspiration by means of numerical simulation. METHODS Two realistic bilateral models of the human nose with and without SP were reconstructed based on computed tomography (CT). A numerical simulation was performed. The intranasal air temperature… CONTINUE READING
