Trauma is the predominant cause of septal perforation resulting from surgical operation for nasal septum including submucosal resection. A 24-year-old female patient was diagnosed with nasal septal perforation after septoplasty. The patient manifested no specific symptoms except for occasional nasal bleeding, whistling and stuffy nose. Nasal septal perforation measuring 5×5 mm² in size was observed at the anterior portion of nasal septum. The present study involves the repair of nasal septal perforation employing a polycaprolactone (PCL) plate and temporalis fascia graft, and discusses the consequences of complete closure of perforation without complications.
