Tip-Oriented Closed Rhinoplasty Built on Septocolumellar Suture and a New Caudal Septal Graft Technique

Conclusions: The septocolumellar suture combined with caudal septal graft in closed rhinoplasty substantially facilitates the achievement of a cosmetically and functionally pleasing end result, bringing the solution for a wide array of problems such as short nose, supratip deformity, nasolabial angle change, or columellar bowing. Nevertheless, the technique has a steep learning curve; therefore, a meticulous preoperative evaluation should be exerted, a precise surgical planning should be prosecuted, and an excessive reduction of the nasal tip or exaggerated columellar retraction should be avoided.

Background Rhinoplasty is a one of the most commonly performed facial surgery aiming at restoring facial aesthetics and improving quality of life. Utility outcome scores are modern, and emerging tools are used to evaluate the burden of a health state on individuals. The study aims to evaluate the impact of living with nasal deformity among real patients and healthy individuals using utility outcome scores. Methods A cross-sectional study was conducted at Otolaryngology and Plastic Surgery clinics in a tertiary center. Healthy individuals were recruited from public facilities. A case scenario was developed to reflect a...

ConclusionWith these modifications the surgeon can employ the caudal extension graft even in angulated caudal septal deviations. A variety of methods have been proposed for correction of caudal nasal deviation.ResumoIntroduçãoO enxerto de extensão caudal é geralmente um enxerto de cartilagem que se sobrepõe à margem caudal do septo nasal. Uma combinação do enxerto de extensão caudal e a técnica de tongue-in-groove é utilizada para estabilizar a base nasal, definir a projeção da ponta e refinar a relação alar-columelar.O...

Facial plast Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1695723Facial plastic and reconstructive surgery (FPRS) training programs offer exceptional exposure to the most current techniques in the field. However, applicants have many factors to weigh when ranking programs. Therefore, it is important to examine the factors that applicants believe to be the most critical when choosing an FPRS fellowship. This is an anonymous online survey of FPRS fellows between the years 2018 and 2020 (total 147). Respondents were asked to rate importance of program factors on a Likert scale (1–5). Of 147 applicants, 63 (43%) responded. Applicants found ...

Since its description by Greig in 1924, OR.H and the associated corrective procedures have captivated many surgeons. Here we present a discussion of the historical evolution of surgery for OR.H and highlight...

CONCLUSIONS: Posterior cleft dimensions can be a modest indicator for the prognosis of velopharyngeal function at age 5 years, when the soft palate is closed first, independently on the timing of hard palate repair. Antero-posterior palatal length seems to protect from velopharyngeal insufficiency and hypernasality. However, the association found was significant but low.
