Submucous resection (SMR) is a surgical procedure to correct the
deformity of nasal septum.
The principle of this procedure is to remove deviated cartilage and
bone from beneath the mucosal lining of nasal septum, leaving a
corrected septum largely composed of scar tissue.
Submucous resection is not advocated in children upto 17 years of
age as it may interfere with development of the facial bones.
