To control epistaxis episodes, the patient was taken to surgery and a modified septal dermoplasty technique was performed, consisting of a hemitransfixion incision on the caudal septal with No.
An important number of topical, systemic, and surgical treatments are available for epistaxis, with variable effectiveness, among which are: cauterization, nasal packing, sclerotherapy, embolization, arterial ligation, nasal humidification, laser ablation, radiofrequency coblation, septal dermoplasty, and nasal closure (2, 3, 5, 6).
Modification of the septal dermoplasty technique by substituting the skin graft for a synthetic dural graft can diminish the incidence of all these possible complications registered in the literature and also avoids taking skin from a second surgical field, as evidenced in the current case reported where after surgery there was no evidence of septal perforation, infection, telangiectasias on the borders, loss of smell, or any other complication, completing one year of post-operatory follow up.
