ABSTRACT

Background: Care and rehabilitation following surgical repair of post-traumatic vestibular stenosis with scarring tissue should be intense and meticulous as treatment failure and risk of re-stenosis is high. Case presentation: We present a case of a 26-year-old male presented at 1 month post-motor vehicle accident which he sustained laceration injury to the left alar nasal sulcus. Upon examination, he had narrowed right vestibular opening and pin-point opening of the left nostril. He underwent a series of dilatation of the left nostril using Hegar dilators and resection of fibrous tissue. Postoperatively, he was advised to perform daily nasal dilatation using glue gun stick for three consecutive months. Lignocaine 2% gel was supplied as a lubricant for stick entry. Upon follow-up review, the patient exhibit excellent clinical outcome with patent bilateral nostrils. Conclusion: This report highlights a noveland cost-effective post-operative care using glue gun stick to maintain a patent and functional vestibular opening.
