The septal cartilage
graft is then sutured to the undersurface of the lateral lobule skin flap.
Patients after canal wall down mastoidectomy surgery for cholesteatoma were reconstructed using septal cartilage
and cortical mastoid bone grafts as strut in between temporalis fascia graft and stapes suprastructure.
Author preferred using rib or septal cartilage
as graft material.
However, even extracorporeal septoplasty alone can be inadequate to correct a difficult nasal septum as the deformed septal cartilage
has to be segmented into several smaller sections.
Perpendicular plate was separated from quadrangular septal cartilage
The authors reported that cytologic examination of pieces of drilled nasal septal cartilage
revealed good uniformity in the size of the pieces, with an average greatest dimension of 0.
Graft material for augmentation included septal cartilage
taken from patient itself or preserved septal cartilage
During this phase, there are two ossification centers in the posteroinferior part of the nasal septum; they are located between the nasal septal cartilage
medially and the nasopalatine nerves laterally.
In canal wall down technique closure within 20 dB using septal cartilage
After drainage, examination of the nasal septum showed complete loss of all septal cartilage
support, resulting in a severe saddle-nose deformity (figure 3).
One patient had an early loss of septal cartilage
and nasal support, which developed into a crooked and saddle-nose deformity requiring reconstruction 7 months later.
