Nasal Obstruction Symptom Relief.
Learn about how LATERA supports lateral nasal cartilage.
Is lateral wall collapse contributing to my Nasal Airway Obstruction?
Your doctor can determine the cause of your NAO. If your symptoms improve when you wear nasal strips, or when you perform a simple breathing test called the Cottle Maneuver (see illustration below), you may benefit from the support of the lateral cartilage in your nasal wall.
COTTLE MANEUVER: Does your breathing improve when you pull on your cheek to hold your nostril to the side? If yes, talk to your doctor about options to support your lateral cartilage, which may include the LATERA- implant.
