An experimental design was executed to determine the effects on snout and midfacial growth of performing submucous resections of large pieces of septal cartilage on 6-week-old canine pups.

Some pieces of intact fresh cartilage were autografted. Gross findings failed to show any perceptible growth disturbances, and the autografts continued to grow more or less proportionately to the rest of the septum.
