 Case 1. A man, aged 41, suffered a middle third facial fracture with complaint of bilateral nasal blockage. The line of bony fracture and consequent osteogenisis were found at the apertura piriformis. The skin deficit was treated by island nasolabial flap graft.

 Case 2. A boy, aged 15, complained of nasal blockage of the left side due to the middle third facial fracture. The patient at the age 6 suffered the facial fracture by traffic accident. Seven months later he was operated for the relief of nasal blockage but the effect of relief was temporary. Three month after the operation the blockage retuned.

 X-ray examination revealed an elevation of the floor of the nasal cavity and abnormal development of the left maxillary sinus to such an extent that the sinus floor fell below the level of the nasal floor.

 The treatment consisted of the removal of superfluous bony tissue, that accumulated through the process of healing and the skin deficit created was mended by means of Z-plastic operation.
