Splenic flexure syndrome is a state in which the nose is bent. It is divided into nasal septal deviation and deformity of nose depending on the area that is bent.
Nasal septal deviation is the state in which the cartilage and bone of the nose is bent inward whereas deformity of the nose is the state in which the external bone or cartilage is bent. People with nasal septal deviation have symptoms like nasal congestion and infection, whereas people who have deformity of the nose have an appearance that is complex due to the screwed nose shape. It is common to see both types of cases. People who visit Plastic Surgery clinics tend to be interested in only external correction. However, nasal septal deviation should also be checked with a CT. If the nasal septal deviation is ignored and only the external bent nose corrected, it is likely to be recurring.
In the correction of a bent nose, the functional considerations are important. Splenic flexure syndrome (bent nose) is to be corrected in a way that the bent nose is fractured and positioned in the center, thereafter the cartilage of the external bent nose is peeled off and positioned into the correct position. At the same time, to correct the bent nose fundamentally, nasal septal deviation surgery should be implemented in a way that the bent part of nasal septum inside the nose is incised and positioned into the center.
If you have a severe degree of nasal septal deviation, the incised nasal cartilage is fixed into the bent part. You might have a feeling of irritation at this point. In order to correct a severely bent nose, the bridge of the nose is incised and moved to the center. If the degree of bending is not serious, simple redressing instead of bone fracture is implemented in order to have a satisfactory result.
