The lowest and highest age of the patients at presentation was 15 and 45 years respectively with a mean age of 27 years. The overall success rate was 80% (48 out of 60). The surgical failure was 20% (12 out of 60) and those were graft failure, re-perforation & anterior blunting at the last visit. Graft failure occurred during the first 8 weeks in 3 cases out of the 12 cases.
