Nasal Valve Collapse and Treatment


Nasal Valve Collapse (Nostril Collapse - Alar Collapse)

 

Nose Wing and Nazal Valv Region

 
The nasal valve area between the nasal wings and the upper part of the nasal septum is considered to be the narrowest cross-sectional area within the nose. Narrowing of the nasal valve can cause severe nasal obstruction during normal or forced breathing in patients as the nasal side wall collapses.

Nasal valve zones (internal and external nasal valve) may act as Starling resistors (foldable tubing attached to rigid tubing). As the air flow rate increases, transmural pressure increases, which causes collapse and a drop in airflow. This can be a mechanism for preventing unheated and moisture-free air from reaching the lower airways in large volumes. In people with acquired or congenital external valve constriction, this mechanism works under very low transmural pressure and leads to premature collapse and difficulty with nasal breathing.
 

What is the Nasal Valve Collapse (Nostril Collapse - Alar Collapse)?

 
Some causes of nasal obstruction may require treatment with rhinoplasty techniques. A cause of nasal obstruction is the collapse of the nose wing. Nasal swelling occurs due to structural constriction of the nose and dynamically collapsing of the weak nasal side walls during inhalation. The nose is narrowness and weakness in the lower inner part of the nose wings, the narrowest part of the respiratory tract.
