Minicomposite Graft for Nasal Alar Revision

Minicomposite Graft for Nasal Alar Revision Abstract • Auricular composite grafts are being used increasingly for repair of nasal deformities. Most commonly these grafts have been employed to repair alar rim and columellar defects secondary to trauma or tumor resection. A technique for reconstruction of the lateral crural area with auricular minicomposite grafts was used in a series of cases. Results have been satisfactory to alleviate the functional and cosmetic difficulties in patients requiring alar revision. (Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 1987;113:943-949) References 1.

Abstract

Abstract • Auricular composite grafts are being used increasingly for repair of nasal deformities. Most commonly these grafts have been employed to repair alar rim and columellar defects secondary to trauma or tumor resection. A technique for reconstruction of the lateral crural area with auricular minicomposite grafts was used in a series of cases. Results have been satisfactory to alleviate the functional and cosmetic difficulties in patients requiring alar revision. (Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 1987;113:943-949) References 1.
