Surgery of the Nasal Cavity

Part of the Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering book series (BIOMEDICAL)

Abstract

Early use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for studies in the nose primarily focussed on understanding airflow and physiology. With advanced techniques evolving CFD models have become more advanced, and the technology for the study of surgery has been improved through the analysis of pre-and post-operative models. This development has led to the use of “virtual” surgery in computer models to predict the results of existing procedures and to potentially create new procedures. This chapter covers pre-operative assessment and current methods of planning for nasal surgery, types of nasal surgery and an introduction to virtual surgery using CFD.
