For nasal fracture presenting saddle nose deformity, the nasal septum was fixed with the frontal process of the maxillary bone by Kirschner wire. Good results were confirmed with computed tomography, and there was no secondary deformity. This method is easy and provided a firm support for nasal septum. By burying Kirschner wire under the skin, it can be left intact for sufficient time, without disruption of daily life.
