I did brain MRI this morning and one of the results was: there is evidence of cavum septum pellucidum what does that means?

In the fetus, it actually begins as a "cavum" form (meaning the structure is split down the middle). Normally, it later after birth. But sometimes it doesn't or in other circumstances it may re-split (head trauma, seen in boxers as well as seen in nontraumatic conditions). ...Read more

Can a septoplasty ever fail? I mean, after a while can the septum return to its old position from before the septoplasty? .

Can a septoplasty ever fail? I mean, after a while can the septum return to its old position from before the septoplasty? .

This: This is a common concer for patients. The answer depends on how the septoplasty surgery was done to begin with. In my practice I usually remove the deviated cartilage and bone so there is no chance of the septum in that area to shift position. Cartilage does have memory so techniques that attempt to reposition the septal cartilage with scoring, etc don't have as high a success rate. ...Read more
