Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A congenital nasal septal defect involving vomeral bone is a rare nasal anomaly, and few reconstructed cases have been reported. Reconstruction of the nasal septum using the outer table of skull to allow the use of glasses was performed. The patient's postoperative course was uneventful, and the patient was discharged on the tenth postoperative day. A transferred bone remains and shows no deviation to the right or left in the ninth postoperative month. The tubercle of the nasal part remains, and the patient is satisfied with the cosmetic result 9 months postoperatively. The timing of the operation and the surgical procedure are discussed.
