Because of the fact that wound healing in ethmoidectomy is quite often met with delayed process and unfavorable results, especially by incurrence of excessive granulation formations and other complications, Akaike and associates attempted transplantation of mucous membrane covering such a wound in order to obviate these difficulties. In 11 cases of ethmoidectomies the wound in each case was covered by a pedicled mucous membrane transplant removed from the diseased maxillary sinus. It is found that the fact that the mucous membrane being diseased was not a contraindication in its use for this purpose because such a mucous membrane soon regained its normal condition.
