BACKGROUND: Septal deviation in patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate is complex, with three dimensional distortion of the septal cartilage that has high propensity for relapse after correction.
AIM: To compare the efficacy of septal batten grafts with conventional septal scoring and suture stabilization for septal correction in cleft rhinoplasty.
SUBJECTS AND METHODS: All the adult patients who reported to us for the correction of cleft nasal deformity were enrolled and assessed for their inclusion in the study. The patients were then assigned to two different groups who underwent septorhinoplasty using two different techniques of septorhinoplasty. Photogrammetry was performed to assess the position of the dorsal and caudal septum at pre operative (T0) immediate post operative (T1) and late post operative periods(T2). VAS score and Naso-endoscopy were used to assess the patient’s airway status and Rhinoplasty esthetic outcome scale was used to assess the patients satisfaction.
RESULTS: 27 patients were enrolled in the study; 7 patients were excluded. 10 patients were assigned to Group A (study group) and 10 to Group B (Control). 4 out of 10 patients of Group B presented with variable degree of relapse of septal deviation in the late post operative period that was evident on photogrammetric evaluation. However no significant difference was seen in the VAS score or the REO score in both the groups.
CONCLUSIONS: Addition of cartilaginous batten appears to be a viable option in correction of 3 dimensionally distorted cartilaginous septum in patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate.
