Abstract

Nasal septal perforation is a defect of cartilage, bone, or mucosa of the nasal septum. Nasal septal perforation has several potential causes such as previous septal surgeries, trauma, malignancy, inflammation, or drugs. According to previous studies, successful surgical outcome is affected by the size and location of the perforation. Although many surgical techniques have been reported, there is no standardized nor consistent surgical method for repairing nasal septal perforation. This report suggests a new surgical technique of repairing septal perforation using a posterior perforation-margin-based hinge flap.
