Septoplasty for Deviated Septum

Research and Clinical Trials for Septoplasty for Deviated Septum

Research specifically for septoplasty for deviated septum seeks to improve procedures and measure outcomes. Other studies investigate septoplasty as a procedure for nasal deviation as well as other problems of the nose and sinuses.
 
Clinical trials for septoplasty for deviated septum include:
  • Studies of staple devices and techniques to close incisions
  • Measuring the reduction in symptoms following surgery
  • Evaluating septoplasty in combination with Le Fort I Osteotomy (a surgery to correct an abnormal upper jaw)
  • Medications to reduce post-operative pain
  • Comparing materials used to pack the nose following surgery
  • Drugs to prevent coughing when awaking from anesthesia
  • Electroacupunture anesthesia
  • Bone substitution techniques to repair badly injured septums
