Septal cartilage deviations which are usually present in deformities of the cartilaginous nasal septum are corrected by scarification on the concave side of the curvature. Histological studies indicated that this procedure was best adapted to the structure of the elastic fibres constituting the cartilaginous nasal septum. Follow-up examinations in 33 patients who having undergone surgery showed nasal breathing to be unobstructed bilaterally in all cases; in 29 patients an aesthetically satisfactory nasal shape was restored and full re-alignment of the cartilaginous nasal septum was obtained.
