ABSTRACT
Velopharyngeal Insufficiency (VPI) means that the velopharyngeal closure is inadequate or disturbed. VPI may be organic
or functional and results in open nasality. VPI due to sudden weight loss is a very rare condition. We reported a case of
open nasality and Eustachian tube dysfunction due to sudden weight loss after bariatric surgery.

Key Words: Bariatric surgery, eustachian tube dysfunction, open nasality, velopharyngeal insufficiency, weight loss
