Dynamic internal nasal valve collapse is common form of nasal valve collapse that can be difficult to address surgically. There have been many surgical techniques described to stabilize and improve the function of the internal nasal valve. Our presented technique is a simple and reproducible surgical technique that has proved reliable in treatment of dynamic internal nasal valve collapse. This video clearly describes and demonstrates our internal nasal valve stabilization technique.

    Thanks for the video. Does this stabilization hold up over time, though? Seems like all it does is pull the mucosa. I would think the problem would recur if you don’t address the cartilage, no?

    Hi Egil,

    The goal is to capture the inferior lateral portion of the upper lateral cartilage at least with the most superior suture. This, we believe, helps to create more robust long term results.
