Single-Staged Tunneled Cheek Interpolation Flap With Cartilage Batten Graft for Repair of Nasal Ala Defect.
Surgical defects located within 5 mm of the nasal alar margin are at risk for alar elevation or collapse of the external nasal valve during wound healing. To reduce the chance of such complications, free cartilage grafts may be used as part of the reconstruction. However, if the defect is large enough so that the free cartilage graft does not fill most of the defect, wound contraction can still lead to alar displacement. Read More
