This case demonstrates a 57-year-old woman that presented to Dr. Mourad after septal perforation secondary to a nasal surgery with a different surgeon many years before. Her complaints were nasal crusting, frequent infections, and bleeding. She attempted to use humidifying measures including ointments, humidified air, and nasal saline, which did not resolve her symptoms. The perforation is larger. The photo on the left demonstrates the 1.5 cm perforation as seen through the left nostril. Her repair required the use of a regional flap, using a right-sided Pedicled Inferior Turbinate Flap. The photo on the right demonstrates the immediate repair of the perforation intraoperatively.
