Caudal Septal Deviation

Surgery For Caudal Septal Deviation in Istanbul


Among the deviations of the nasal septum, the caudal or anterior nasal septum deviation, which is the closest to the nostrils, although it is not the most common type, but it may cause both cosmetic and functional problems at the nose tip. While the frequency of caudal septum was found to be 5% in a study by Dr.Guyuron et al. A study of Sedwick et al. Found that 8,7% of 2,043 patients had a caudal septum deviation (sources >> A pratical classification of septonasal deviation and an effective guide to septal surgery / Caudal septoplasty for treatment of septal deviation: aesthetic and functional correction of the nasal base). In addition to important functional problems, deviations of the anterior septum cause cosmetic problems. The first of these aesthetic problems is the alteration of the relationship between kolumella and the nostrils. In other words, this part of the septum, which should normally be located in the middle line behind the arms, is pushed out of the nasal cavity in the right or left side and the nasal tip is pushed in the opposite direction.

Even small anterior deviations can cause nasal congestion, the most common cause of the nasal cavity is the area at the entrance to the nostrils. Dr. Grymer and colleagues have shown that the amount of nasal obstruction caused by deviations from the anterior nasal septum may be much more severe than nasal congestions due to posterior deviations using acoustic rhinometry measurements (source link >> Acoustic Rhinometry: evaluation of the nasal cavity with septal deviations, before and after septoplasty). It is emphasized that patients with such deviation can benefit from erosion correction procedures much more than classical deviations and long-term patient satisfaction (source link >>Septoplasty: long term evaluation of results).

Treatment of caudal septum deviation

Swinging door technique

Therefore, many techniques have been used to correct the caudal deviations of the nasal septum. Dr. In 1929 Metzembaum described the technique of caudal septoplasty as the 'swinging door', and many other authors have developed different ways of correcting these aberrations. However, the existence of many different techniques tested and proven reflects the difficulty of correcting this anterior septum deviation. The most commonly used techniques for correcting the caudal deviations of the nasal septum include "swinging door" or variations since it was described by Dr.Metzembaun. With such a correction, the anterior portion of the nasal septum is not removed and the cartilage is excised by a series of cuts or weakened by cuts on the opposite side of the deviation, and then stabilized using sutures (source link >> Replacement of the lower end of the dislocated septal cartilage versus submucous resection of the dislocated end of the septal cartilage).
In patients with caudal septum deviation, there are authors who argue that correction of deviation with limited incisions made to curved cartilages will not be sufficient and that partial curves can be seen as a result of the improvement in the same way that can be considered as "cartilage memory" that occurs in cartilage later on. In patients with severe caudal septum deviation, it is thought that performing an operation in the form of open technique nasal tip aesthetics or open technique septoplasty is a more effective but larger operation (source links >> Is there objective evidence that septal surgery improves nasal airflow? / Outcomes after nasal septoplasty: results from the Nasal Obstruction Septoplasty Effectiveness (NOSE) study / Applications of the biomecanical behavior of cartilage to nasal septoplastic surgery).

Open technique tip plasty / Open technique septoplasty / Open technique caudal septoplasty 

In patients with advanced caudal septum deviation and a clear nose tip asymmetry, open technique nose tip plasty operation is appropriate. The aim of this operation is to correct both the airway narrowing caudal septum region and the removal of the asinmtrin at the tip of the nose. During the procedure, a new cartilage graft is placed in place of the resected caudal septum and the loss of support at the nose tip is prevented.

Similarly, open technique septoplasty can also be performed for the treatment of caudal septal deviation. Caudal septoplasty can be performed with open technique or closed technique. In general, I prefer an open technique that provides anatomic imperfection to perfection.
