Redefining the Septal L-Strut to Prevent Collapse.

PLoS One 2016 13;11(4):e0153056. Epub 2016 Apr 13.

Department of Mechanical Engineering, POSTECH, Pohang, Korea.

During septorhinoplasty, septal cartilage is frequently resected for various purposes but the L-strut is preserved. Numerous materials are inserted into the nasal dorsum during dorsal augmenation rhinoplasty without considering nasal structural safety. This study used a finite element method (FEM) to redefine the septal L-strut, to prevent collapse as pressure moved from the rhinion to the supratip breakpoint on the nasal dorsum and as the contact percentage between the caudal L-strut and the maxillary crest changed.

Asian Rhinoplasty with Rib Cartilage.

Semin Plast Surg 2015 Nov;29(4):262-8

VIP International Plastic Surgery Center, Seoul, Korea.

An Asian rhinoplasty is one of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery. The anatomical characteristics of the Asian nose are quite different from those of other races, including low dorsum height, short columella, a thick soft tissue covering on the tip with flaccid lower lateral cartilage, and a sunken midface with relative protrusion of the mouth due to maxilla or premaxillary retrusion. For augmentation and lengthening of the nose, a silicone implant has been commonly used in Asian countries. Read More

Anatomy and surgical treatment of the depressor septi nasi muscle: a systematic review.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2015 May;135(5):838e-848e

New York, N.Y.; and Shreveport, La. From the Department of Plastic Surgery, New York University; and The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery.

Background: Although the majority of nasal alterations in rhinoplasty result from either augmentation or reduction of bone and cartilaginous substructure, modifications of influential soft-tissue provide significant contribution to the final result. The depressor septi nasi muscle is a soft-tissue structure well known to influence the final result in rhinoplasty. The objective of this study was to perform a standardized, comprehensive review of relevant data published with regard to the depressor septi nasi muscle. Read More

Reconstruction of a full-thickness, complex nasal defect that includes the nasal septum using a free, thin superficial inferior epigastric artery flap.

Microsurgery 2016 Jan 4;36(1):66-9. Epub 2014 Dec 4.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, The University of Tokyo, 7-3-1 Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, 113-8655, Japan.

Complex nasal defects present a surgical challenge, particularly in cases with a full-thickness defect that extends into the nasal septum. Although the superficial inferior epigastric artery (SIEA) flap has been widely used as a bulky flap for soft tissue augmentation, reports on its use as a thin flap are limited. We present a case of complex nasal defect reconstruction using a free, thin SIEA flap. Read More

Correction of infraorbital and malar deficiency using costal osteochondral graft along with orthognathic surgery in Crouzon syndrome.

J Craniofac Surg 2014 Sep;25(5):e449-51

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Ajou University Hospital, Suwon, Republic of Korea.

In syndromic craniosynostosis, such as Crouzon syndrome, midfacial hypoplasia can cause exophthalmos and concave facial profile. Though midfacial hypoplasia in Crouzon syndrome patients can be treated with midface advancement, known as a Le Fort II or Le Fort III osteotomy, such method can change nasal appearance and frequently fails to achieve class I occlusion after surgery. This report presents a case of an aesthetically and functionally successful midfacial augmentation using rib and cartilage graft along with orthognathic surgery (Le fort I and bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy) for patients with Crouzon syndrome.

Three-dimensional computed tomographic analysis of the maxilla in unilateral cleft lip and palate: implications for rhinoplasty.

J Craniofac Surg 2012 Sep;23(5):1338-42

Department of Plastic Surgery, C.S.M. Medical University, Lucknow, India.

Background: The cleft lip nose is a complex 3-dimensional (3D) midfacial soft tissue and bony deformity. The contribution of maxillary hypoplasia to the etiology of this deformity has often been implicated for the suboptimal results of surgical treatment. The dimensions of the maxilla in unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) have not been studied especially in relation to the volumetric and other asymmetries on the either side in unilateral clefts.

Interpositional cartilage grafts to improve vertical length of the face.

J Craniofac Surg 2010 Nov;21(6):1666-9

Jalisco Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Institute, Plastic Surgery Division of the University of Guadalajara, Medical School, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

Background: Most plastic surgeons in the past used bone grafts for nasal augmentation and for augmentation of the middle third of the face, and we, in our service, also used bone grafts at that time. Later, however, most plastic surgeons changed, and cartilage grafts are now the favorite material for rhinoplasty. For many years, we used cartilage grafts in rhinoplasty, and we now report the use of cartilage grafts to augment the length of the middle third of the face. Read More

Use of irradiated cartilage in rhinoplasty of the non-Caucasian nose.

Aesthet Surg J 2004 Jul-Aug;24(4):324-30

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, NY, USA.

Background: Aesthetic correction of the non-Caucasian nose may require a high volume of graft material to achieve an aesthetically pleasing shape and contour while maintaining characteristics in keeping with the patient's ethnicity.

Objective: We report our experience with the long-term use of irradiated homograft costal cartilage (IHCC) in 17 non-Caucasian patients.

Methods: Individually packaged specimens of IHCC were obtained from government-approved tissue banks for intraoperative use in the augmentation of the dorsum as an onlay graft and, when necessary, to create maxillary-columellar-tip (MCT) struts and crural and spreader grafts. Read More

Department of Burns and Plastic Surgery, Lok Nayak Hospital, New Delhi, India.

It is universally acknowledged that correction of a cleft lip nasal deformity continues to be a difficult problem. In developing countries, it is common for patients with cleft lip deformities to present in their early or late teens for correction of severe secondary lip and nasal deformities retained after the initial repairs were carried out in infancy or early childhood. Such patients have never had the benefit of primary nasal correction, orthodontic management, or alveolar bone grafting at an appropriate age. Read More

Authors:
H S Park

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2001 Jan-Feb;25(1):8-14

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Ewha Woman's University, School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

There is often a preexisting acute columella-labial angle in Asian noses and in most of these cases, the nasal spine is underdeveloped or sometimes even absent. Moreover, nasal tip projection by a tip graft or cephalic rotation of the nasal tip may get worse at the retracted columella-labial junction in the Asian nose with an underdeveloped anterior nasal spine, thus requiring the use of a maxillary spine graft or an implant. In many instances, however, the ideal source of autogenous tissue may not be available or the donor site for these tissues may be objectionable. Read More

Our favorable experience with use of porous hydroxyapatite granules to augment the craniofacial skeleton (more than 200 patients during an 8-year period) has led us to use this method to augment the nasal skeleton in selected cases. Extensive experience has been achieved in augmenting the perialar, maxilla, and glabellar area with very favorable results. A much more limited experience has been gained in augmenting the nasal dorsum, and this method must be considered investigatory at present. Read More

Authors:
T Watanabe K Matsuo

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Shinshu University School of Medicine, Matsumoto, Japan.

The two major surgical methods for improving the midface and its profile of Binder's syndrome (commonly referred to as "dish face" deformity of "C-shape" deformity) are bone or cartilage graft and osteotomy. The bone or cartilage graft limited to the nasal sill area is ineffective in changing the flatness of the paranasal area. Furthermore, Le Fort II osteotomy has distinct disadvantages with possible damage to the patients and an additional Le Fort I osteotomy or orthodontic therapy is required to rearrange the occlusion of the patient with no malocclusion.

Nonvascularized autogenous bone grafts for craniofacial skeletal augmentation and replacement.

Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut.

Autogenous nonvascularized bone grafts play an important role in the reconstruction of complex craniomaxillofacial defects. Experimental animal data have demonstrated that grafts from membranous bone donor sites tend to undergo less resorption than grafts from endochondral donor sites, probably because of the different bony architecture of each of these types of grafts. Of all the potential donor sites, the harvest of bone graft from the calvarium is associated with the least overall morbidity. Read More

In the quest for a material other than autograft and homograft bone for use in facial augmentation and replacement, materials scientists have developed numerous inert materials, some of which have a porous structure allowing scar tissue ingrowth to aid in stabilization of the implant. This study investigates a bioactive, nonporous, transparent glass (Bioglass) in a dog model for use in facial bone augmentation. In 18 dogs studied in three groups at 1, 3, and 6 months, Bioglass implants developed a bond to bone or soft tissue in 54 of 72 instances (75% of the time). Read More
