Abstract

Objective

The aim of the study was to assess the outcome of nasal deformity correction using rhinopasty outcome evaluation (ROE) scale.

Materials and methods

We conducted a prospective study of 30 patients with crooked nasal deformityin period 2008 to 2011 and assessed outcome with the help of ROE scale.

Results

Preoperative mean ROE score was 34.15 ± 15.58. All 30 patients ROE score was less than 85 in preoperative period. Postoperative mean score was 86.50 ± 7.07 with a mean gain of 52.35. 21/30 patients (70%) had postoperative score of more than 85 (excellent).

Conclusion

Rhinoplasty outcome evaluation scale is a useful subjective tool to assess the impact of deformity and outcome after surgery (patient's satisfaction).
