Risk of Perforated Septum After Another Septoplasty?
I underwent Septoplasty a few years ago, but to inadequate satisfaction. I wonder, if I have the procedure again, do I risk a "perforated septum"? If that is a danger, is it possible to just take some cartilage from the "narrow" side and move it to the other? Would such cartilage just be a loose "piece" stuck under a blanket of flesh, or would it "fuse" to what would be beneath? Thanks very much.
