Total Nasal Reconstruction With Prefabricated and Prelaminated Free Flap

Nasal reconstruction is a complex staged procedure. When optimal donor areas are unavailable, flap prefabrication and prelamination techniques can be used for total nasal reconstruction. A technique of total nasal reconstruction using neovascularization of the supraclavicular skin from a skin free flap used for internal lining, along with prelamination of the cartilage framework and surgical delays, is described in 2 patients with adverse anatomical conditions.

This study highlights some of the risks related to such procedures, reporting a case of a painful, fluctuating nodule in the midline of the vestibular sulcus, extending to the upper lip. The patient, a 32-year-old man, showed a normochromic swelling of the affected region with 2 years ’ history of evolution. The patient stated that he underwent a rhinoplasty procedure 5 years earlier. An excisional biopsy was performed and the lesion was diagnosed as a foreign body granuloma caused by methylmethacrylate.

AbstractBackgroundThe age at which nasal tip support changes start to occur is unknown. Evaluation of nasal tip support is difficult, especially as the ideal nasal tip support pressure remains elusive. The aim of this study is to determine the nasal tip support pressure alterations relative to age and sex.ObjectivesThe aim of this study is to determine the changers in resistance of the nasal tip support in relation to age and sex.MethodsThis prospective clinical study was conducted between January and April 2019 at a tertiary health facility. Nasal tip resistances were measured in four different age-groups (20 –29, 3...

This study aimed to explore a particular single-stage method and evaluate the effect of simultaneous reparation of secondary unilateral cleft lip-nose deformities.Cleft lip patients who had previously undergone nasolabial surgery with residual poor nasal/lip appearance were included. The alveolar bone defect was repaired with granular costal cortical bone. Lip revision and rhinoplasty were performed using diced costal cartilage. The lip, nose, and alveolar deformities were corrected in one stage.From 2011 to 2017, 53 cases were treated. The vermilion discrepancy was corrected in all cases. Fifty-one patients were successfu...

ConclusionThe MiRa scale is the only aesthetic analysis scale validated in the literature for nasal dysmorphoses. The combined use of two sets of translation recommendations, with a five-step translation-back-translation process, made it possible to obtain a French version perfectly in line with the original. This version is usable by French-speakers.
