Reformatted computed tomography to assess the internal nasal valve and association with physical examination.

Arch Facial Plast Surg 2012 Sep-Oct;14(5):331-5

Main Line Center for Laser Surgery, Ardmore, Pennsylvania 19003, USA.

Objectives: To assess the cross-sectional area and angle of the internal nasal valve more accurately by reformatting computed tomography (CT) scans of the nasal airway according to a more appropriate orientation than scans traditionally sectioned in the coronal plane and then to compare the results with clinical data on the nasal valve obtained from physical examination.

Methods: We performed a retrospective review of the medical records of 24 rhinoplasty patients treated at a private practice facial plastic surgery office affiliated with a tertiary care university hospital. The patients had fine-cut (0. Read More

Versatile applications of the polydioxanone plate in rhinoplasty and septal surgery.

Arch Facial Plast Surg 2012 Sep-Oct;14(5):323-30

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Charing Cross Hospital, Imperial College Healthcare National Health Service Trust, London, United Kingdom.

Background: Rhinoplasty and septal surgery often require the use of cartilage grafts. Autologous cartilage may be thin or deviated, and the use of an absorbable scaffold material to support the reimplanted cartilage during healing can improve technique and outcomes.

Objective: To describe the use of a polydioxanone plate not only as a template in extracorporeal septoplasty but also for various other grafts commonly used in rhinoplasty and for the repair of septal perforations. Read More
