Current approaches to septal saddle nose reconstruction using autografts

Young, Karena; Rowe-Jones, Julianb

Collapse Box


Purpose of review: To describe the contemporary techniques used for septal saddle nose and, based on these, present our approaches for correction of a spectrum of deformity severities.

Recent findings: A review of different techniques currently in practice. These reflect greater emphasis on nasal structural framework repair rather than disguise and the use of autografts rather than allografts.

Summary: We present our classification of septal saddle deformity, demonstrating that this condition requires a flexible surgical approach with different techniques required depending on the extent of the defect.
