Shields, Mechanical, Nasal

Definition : Shields designed for mechanical protection and support of the nose. These trusses typically consist of a hard plastic, thermoplastic, or metallic cup-like prefabricated or custom-made device that is attached to the face using dressings and/or straps. Nose mechanical shields are mainly used to protect the external nasal bones and cartilage from injuries after trauma, illness, and/or surgery (e.g., rhinoplasty). Dedicated masks intended mainly to shield the nose are also available.
