Abstract Saddle nose is the most disfiguring of the commonly encountered nasal deformities. It constitutes a real handicap in the lives of those so afflicted. Not only are they psychologically maladjusted, but they often experience added difficulty in their efforts to earn a livelihood. They are therefore entitled to as much attention on the part of the surgeon as sufferers from any other clinical ailment.1 Fortunately, saddle nose is one of the facial deformities which responds satisfactorily to correction. The patient is almost invariably gratified by the decided improvement in his appearance, and his gratification is increased by the favorable comments of his friends. The correction of saddle nose is of particular interest to rhinologists since the deformity is occasionally caused by operations on the nose. The technic for the correction of most of the common nasal deformities has been fairly well standardized in recent years. Except for References 1.
