The nasal septum

Otolaryngol Clin North Am. 1987 Nov;20(4):743-67.


The nasal septum plays a paramount role in determining nasal aesthetics and nasal function. Surgical management of the nasal septum often presents a challenge to even the most skilled nasal surgeon. A firm understanding of anatomic and physiologic aspects of the nasal septum will allow the rhinoplasty surgeon to better deal with this component of nasal reconstruction.
