The anatomy of the nasal skeleton in newborns and adults are not alike. The complete cartilaginous framework of the neonatal nose becomes partly and gradually ossified during the years of growth and is more vulnerable to trauma in that period. Injury in early youth may have large consequences for development and may result in a nasal deformity which will increase during growth and reach its peak during and after the adolescent growth spurt. To understand more of the underlying problems of nasal… Expand
Justification for Rhinoseptoplasty in Children – Our 10 Years Overview
TLDR
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
TLDR
Effective septal correction by septoplasty in children not only relieves nasal blockage but also controls the associated symptoms. Expand
Septoplasty in Children
TLDR
Pediatric septoplasty and its indications are discussed, overviews of development of the nasal skeleton from neonate to adult, nasal growth, and cartilaginous septum are presented, and important issues and comments on pediatric septoplasties are provided. Expand
Demystifying Septoplasty in Children
TLDR
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
The osseocartilaginous vault of the nose: anatomy and surgical observations.
TLDR
The aesthetic lines and profile of the nose before dorsal reduction are dictated by the cartilaginous vault, and after reduction, the dorsal lines are determined by the bony vault edges. Expand
Treatment outcomes of pediatric rhinoplasty: the Asan Medical Center experience.
TLDR
The outcome analysis in this series reveals that rhinoplasty in children is complicated by a high rate of revision and esthetic dissatisfaction, and the results of this study may indicate that surgeons should have a conservative attitude and apply strict indication in selecting pediatric rhinplasty candidates. Expand
Nasal septal abscess in children: reconstruction with autologous cartilage grafts on polydioxanone plate.
TLDR
Total reconstruction of abscess-induced destruction of nasal septal cartilage with autologous cartilage grafts fixed on polydioxanone plate has resulted in normal development of the nose during follow-up, without expected aesthetic problems. Expand
Does pediatric septoplasty compromise midfacial growth? A systematic review
TLDR
Septoplasty in pediatric patients does not seem to affect midfacial growth according to available evidence, and the degree of recommendation of these studies was not superior to level C. Expand
Septorhinoplasty in the Pediatric Patient.
TLDR
The timing, indications, and surgical technique in pediatric septorhinoplasty are discussed and certain areas of the nose that are potential growth zones that should be left undisturbed when performing nasal surgeries on pediatric patients are elucidated. Expand
Diseases of the nose and paranasal sinuses in child

TLDR
Comorbidities, such as pediatric bronchial asthma, presently play an even more important role in the therapy of rhinosinusitis; therefore, it is often wise to have the support of pediatricians. Expand

Rhinosurgery in children: basic concepts.
TLDR
The essential problem in pediatric rhinosurgery is not the age-specific anatomy but the poor wound-healing capacity: fractured or transected septum cartilage will not heal, and disconnected ends tend to overlap, resulting in increasing or recurrent deviations. Expand
The cartilaginous nasal dorsum and the postnatal growth of the nose
TLDR
This work considers the role of the cartilaginous nasal dorsum (upper lateral cartilages) in the postnatal growth of the nose and the anatomy of a child's nose is identical to that of an adult. Expand
Growth of the face and jaws after resection of the septal cartilage in the rabbit.
TLDR
Postmortem gross findings of the dissected, sectioned and x-rayed skulls of the experimental animals revealed that the snout was shorter and smaller with a severe relative mandibular prognathism, the nasal and premaxillary bones were smaller, and the nasal cavity and piriform aperture were smaller than in the control animals. Expand
Nasal growth after external septoplasty in children.
TLDR
External septoplasty does not affect most aspects of nasal and facial growth, but it may negatively influence growth of the nasal dorsum. Expand
Adolescent Growth Patterns of the Bony and Cartilaginous Framework of the Nose: A Cephalometric Study
TLDR
Age-related growth changes in the bony and cartilaginous framework of the nose were evaluated and it was found that the lower dorsum rotated forward slightly, rotation of the upper dorsum was not significant during adolescence. Expand
Histological analysis of the postnatal development of the nasal septum.
TLDR
There is, on the basis of the present findings, no reason to believe that the septal cartilage plays a major role in the forward, downward growth of the maxillary complex in homo. Expand

TLDR
It is believed that external approach does not provide any additional benefit over hemitransfixion-transfixion incision in case of septal deviation anterior to the nasal spine, and that it is a more traumatic approach to the growing nose. Expand
The influence of partial resections of the nasal septal cartilage on the growth of the upper jaw and the nose: an experimental study in rabbits.
TLDR
It appeared that a discontinuity of the septal cartilage does not prevent all growth of the Nose and maxilla but interferes with their extra growth, in particular the lengthening of the nose and the upper jaw and the postnatal ventral displacement of the molar complex and maxillary. Expand
Experimental nasal septoplasty; influence on nasomaxillary development. A roentgen cephalometric study in growing domestic cats.
TLDR
Subepichondrial surgery was performed in growing domestic cats to tentatively intimate that septal surgery might be carried out at a much earlier age than hitherto assumed. Expand

TLDR
The purpose of this report is to review and summarize selected information obtained over the past several years about basic concepts of gross postnatal growth of the facial skeleton, as they apply to the facial region. Expand
