Abstract


The correction of caudal septal deviation is difficult, simply because of the intrinsic memory of the septal cartilage. We conducted a case series analysis of the effectiveness of the TnR Nasal Mesh® . This case study enrolled 3 male patients with severe caudal septal deviation. All surgical procedures were performed using endonasal septoplasty via bilateral flap elevation. Pre- and post-operative analyses of subjective symptoms were performed using the Visual Analog Scale (VAS). Nasal patency was evaluated using the objective findings of semi-quantitative endoscopy and acoustic rhinometry before and after surgery. The patients exhibited subjective and objective improvement in VAS scores, endoscopic, and acoustic rhinometry results. No significant complications were observed. We verified the clinical effectiveness of TnR Nasal Mesh® for caudal septal correction without the external open approach. We suggest that septal batten grafting with the alloplastic TnR Nasal Mesh® can be an alternative method for caudal septal correction.
