Abstract:The authors report a case of nasal malignant melanoma involving the septum, nasal turbinates and nasopharynx which was approached by lateral rhinotomy combined with an anterior transantral approach with excision of the septum and the lateral wall of the nasal cavity for wide exposure of the tumour. Using this technique complete surgical resection of a large nasal malignant melanoma was achieved with minimal morbidity and good aesthetics.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
