Infections, trauma, iatrogenic causes, congenital malformations, or complications of systemic diseases can result in perforation of the nasal septum. An intranasal stent is a removable prosthesis that can be inserted into the nasal cavity to support the form of nose. The stenting can be used for recanalization and nasal valve preservation. This case report presents a method for the fabrication of a customized nasal stent in a 14-year-old female patient with posttraumatic unilateral collapsed nasal vestibule.
