Characterization of the Airflow within an Average Geometry of the Healthy Human Nasal Cavity

This study’s objective was the generation of a standardized geometry of the healthy nasal cavity. An average geometry of the healthy nasal cavity was generated using a statistical shape model based on 25 symptom-free subjects. Airflow within the …

Digital Analysis of Nasal Airflow Facilitating Decision Support in Rhinosurgery

Successful functional surgery on the nasal framework requires reliable and comprehensive diagnosis. In this regard, the authors introduce a new methodology: Digital Analysis of Nasal Airflow (diANA). It is based on computational fluid dynamics, a …

The Healthy Nasal Cavity - Characteristics of Morphology and Related Airflow Based on a Statistical Shape Model Viewed From a Surgeons Perspective

Functional surgery on the nasal framework requires referential criteria to objectively assess nasal breathing for indication and follow-up. This motivated us to generate a mean geometry of the nasal cavity based on a statistical shape model. In this …
