Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper describes a new technique of septoplasty especially devised to minimize and simplify surgery and to preserve at the same time the integrity of mucosa at the critical area of articulation between the caudal quadrangular cartilage and the vomeropremaxillary crest. Two special instruments specifically designed for this type of operation are illustrated. The technique finds a specific clinical application to cosmetic surgery of the nose when a functional problem exists.
