Abstract

Background: In this study we aimed to compare the effects of leaving the perichondrial sheaths open, closing the sheaths reciprocally, and leaving the resected cartilages in the perichondrial bed as small autologous grafts to clarify the effect of perichondrium left intact within the donor site on costal cartilage regeneration.
