- Nasal vestibular stenosis is an uncommon cause of nasal obstruction. There are various causes of the narrowing of vestibule, including previous trauma, surgery, infection, and iatrogenic injury. The disease is characterized by circumferential scar retraction in inlet of nasal cavities which are caused by secondary proliferation of granulation and fibrous tissue. A number of studies were reported on the surgical correction of vestibular stenosis, but no single technique had been widely accepted due to a wide spectrum treatment methods owing to the various causes of disease and deformities of the related anatomy. Here we suggest a new surgical technique for correcting a case of vestibular stenosis caused by trauma. Copyright ? 2021 Korean Society of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
