Abstract

The nasal septal perforation is an inadvertent complication of septal surgery which is caused by traumatic, iatrogenic, caustic or inflammatory reasons. Repair of the perforation is indicated when complications such as whistling sound, marginal crusting, frequent nasal bleeding and low-grade perichondritis develop. There is no standard surgical method for repair of a septal perforation. The size, site and the causing factor of perforation determine closure methods. A septal perforation using the concha bullosa flap of middle turbinate was successfully repaired.
