ConclusionsDespite the availability of alternative cartilage sources and the risk of cartilage warping, autogenous costal cartilage is still the ideal cartilage source for complex nasal reconstruction. It is readily available, durable and versatile. Several recent studies have reported alterations in surgical technique to reduce warping. This will subsequently reduce rates of revision surgery and ensure this versatile cartilage source continues to be utilised by surgeons in future.Level of Evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study

ConclusionThe use of diced cartilage combined with the NCH gel and blood is an effective, simple and safe method for nasal dorsum camouflage in thin-skinned patients in rhinoplasty. The NCH gel within the mixed graft also reduces adhesions at the osteotomy lines.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

AbstractBackgroundThe authors of this study have developed a novel graft called the ‘The Joint Tip Graft’ which adds support to the lateral crus, camouflages the tip grafts, supports the facet and adds volume to the nasal tip as a single graft. The aim of this study was to define and introduce the tripod graft.MethodsThirty patients who underwent primary rhinoplasty at a tertiary academic center were included. Patients were randomly assigned into two groups according to the grafts used: group 1: Joint tip graft was additionally used, and group 2: Joint tip graft was not used. All patients were photographed by a...

Facial plast Surg 2019; 35: 003-008 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1677720Successful functional surgery on the nasal framework requires reliable and comprehensive diagnosis. In this regard, the authors introduce a new methodology: Digital Analysis of Nasal Airflow (diANA). It is based on computational fluid dynamics, a statistical shape model of the healthy nasal cavity and rhinologic expertise. diANA necessitates an anonymized tomographic dataset of the paranasal sinuses including the complete nasal cavity and, when available, clinical information. The principle of diANA is to compare the morphology and the respective airflow of an ...

In this study, the authors could demonstrate that the introduced nasal cavity's mean geometry features characteristics of the inner shape and airflow, which are commonly observed in symptom-free subjects. Therefore, the mean geometry might serve as a reference-like model when one considers qualitative aspects. However, to facilitate quantitative considerations and statistical inference, further research is necessary. Additionally, the authors were able to obtain details about the importance of the isthmus nasi and the inferior turbinate for the intranasal airstream.

Facial plast Surg 2019; 35: 014-022 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1677854A clinical study was conducted to determine the effect of nasal valve lift treatment using absorbable, polylactic acid, self-retaining cone threads (Silhouette Soft) in patients with nasal valve stenosis. Sixty patients (n = 60) were included in this prospective study which was performed from January 2015 until December 2018, 19 patients dropped out due to noncompliance. Initially, participants were divided into two equal groups. One was treated by nasal valve lift only, the other additionally received turbinoplasty. A visual analog scale (VAS) wa...

Facial plast Surg 2019; 35: 023-030 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1677767The importance of a straight and stable central framework is beyond dispute. Many authors allude to technical aspects how to achieve the above-mentioned requirements. Far less is said about the contact zones of the framework and how to achieve a long-lasting and solid fixation. In the authors' patient group, they found the need to work on the septum/the central framework in approximately 84% of the cases. In 61% of the patients, the authors had to operate on the fixation point. Of course, there is a great variety of anatomical findings. So the required techniqu...
