Aerodynamic investigation of the correlation between nasal septal deviation and Chronic rhinosinusitis
The Laryngoscope, 07/16/2012
Li L et al. – From the aerodynamics perspective, both sides of nasal cavity have the potential to predispose the occurrence of chronic rhinosinusitis in patients with nasal septal deviation. The increased deviation angle did not aggravate aerodynamic disturbance around the osteomeatal complex. The contributing role of nasal septal deviation in the pathogenesis of chronic rhinosinusitis should not be emphasized in excess.
