In newborns, the main supporting structure of the nose is the dorsoseptal cartilage, a T-bar-formed complex of septum and upper lateral cartilages, which is essentially an external extension of the cartilage of the anterior cranial base. Later the anatomic situation gradually changes -- a potential pitfall for surgeons and radiologists. The vulnerability of various processes underlying postnatal development of the facial skeleton is discussed. The cartilaginous septum is the dominant growth… Expand
Rhinosurgery in children: developmental and surgical aspects of the growing nose
A list of guidelines to be considered before starting to perform surgery on the growing midface in children is compiled, based on their observations in animals and a few clinical studies, mostly with small numbers of patients but with a long follow-up. Expand
Justification for Rhinoseptoplasty in Children – Our 10 Years Overview
The growth centres of the nose have to be avoided if possible; long-term nasal issues will theoretically be minimised. Expand
Septoplasty in children: Results of 250 cases
Effective septal correction by septoplasty in children not only relieves nasal blockage but also controls the associated symptoms. Expand
Trauma of the midface
Intraoperative cone beam radiographs and preshaped titanium mesh implants for orbital reconstruction are new techniques and essential aspects in midface traumatology, and fractures of the anterior skull base with cerebrospinal fluid leaks show very promising results in endonasal endoscopic repair.

Growth of the nasal septal cartilage outstrips the growth of other skeletal and soft tissues in the midface to such an extent that it is the pacemaker for growth of the face and anterior portion of the skull. Expand
Demystifying Septoplasty in Children
Nasal septum deviation should be corrected early to provide the harmonious growth of the face and to enable normal development of the child, without the occurrence of nasal deformity. Expand
Clinical significance of the sphenoidal process of the cartilaginous nasal septum: A preliminary morphological evaluation
The sphenoidal process of the cartilaginous septum was long and prominent in the patients with septal deviation, implying that delayed nasal sePTal ossification may be one cause of nasal sepsal deviation. Expand
Rhinoseptoplasty in children.
The surgical experience in treating children with nasal septum and/or nasal pyramid deviation is reported to provide harmonious growth, and prevent severe sequelae found in mouth breathers. Expand

An extended osteocartilaginous spreader graft, with medial osteotomy and lateralization of the nasal bone on the concave side, is a new technique with a high success rate for correction of deviated nose. Expand
Is Septoplasty Necessary When Using the Endoscopic Endonasal Transsphenoidal Approach for a Deviated Nasal Septum?
Endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal approach (EETSA) to the sphenoidal process of the septal cartilage of a deviated nasal septum allows posterior septectomy (including removal of this deviated complex) to be performed even in cases with severe nasal sepsis. Expand
