Nasal synechiae is a common complication following nasal surgeries, inserting intranasal splints in the nasal cavity is usually done to prevent this complication.
This helps provide septal support and reduce or prevent adhesions between the septum and lateral nasal wall following surgery.
Silicone rubber splint is commonly used in my cases. My experience showed that it is safe and well tolerated by patients.
Silicone rubber splints are in common use though other substitutes such as x-ray films, Teflon, Dacron silastic sheet all have been described in medical literature.
The splints are sutured by black silk, and removed after 7-10 days.
