Sepwrhinoplastic procedures versus submucous resection of the septum, using septum perforation as an indicator

Volume: 27 - Issue: 1

Firstpage: 63 - Lastpage: 66

Comparison of the results following submucous resection (SMR) and septoplastic
surgery has shown that significantly more perforations of the nasal septum develop
after the latter than the former procedure. However, submucosal resection of the
septum is a rapid, but traumatic surgical method, which has its merits in duration
and tradition. It has been described in textbooks from edition to edition in an
unchanged form. The main drawbacks are that SMR leads to mucosal atrophy, a high
rate of septum perforation, and conchal hypertrophy.
Septorhinoplastic procedures are more time-consuming and require considerable
study, training and knowledge of various surgical approaches. However, the advantages
of these procedures in the long-term are in the light of the above mentioned
drawbacks, evident.
