For our experiment, we chose to use only septal cartilage
to maximize the number of viable-appearing chondrocytes.
Destruction of septal cartilage
may lead to septal perforation or saddle-nose deformity caused by the loss of cartilaginous support to the distal portion of the nose.
1,2) This process involves the collection of blood between the septal cartilage
An operation to repair lateral displacement of the lower border of the septal cartilage
Other than the deficiency of the septal cartilage
(without perforation), our patient experienced no untoward complications such as septal perforation, local spread, central nervous system involvement, atrophic rhinitis, or nasal stenosis.
A CSEG is harvested from septal cartilage
and cut to exact shape (figure 4).
The aim of our investigation was to identify the histologic effects of silver nitrate on nasal septal cartilage
after different lengths of exposure.
Nasal septal cartilage
and auricular cartilage with epithelium are used widely for reconstruction.
Septal suturing has also been proposed as an alternative to packing, despite concerns about its inability to effectively stabilize the septal cartilage
If lower lateral cartilage support results in an increase in patency, we make the decision to improve the external valve by fashioning septal cartilage
(or ear conchal cartilage) into thin alar batten grafts and placing them into the exact location of the improvement in patency.
The combination of the pressure and the lack of nutrients causes necrosis and resorption of the septal cartilage
