Cranial Nasal Bone Grafts.

Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

Reconstitution of the nasal scaffolding with maintenance of soft tissue proportions either following severe facial trauma or as a sequela to aesthetic rhinoplasty misadventures frequently is best achieved using the stability afforded by bone grafts. Split cranial bone grafts offer many advantages and may be the donor site of choice, and may even allow such surgery to be performed on an outpatient basis in some cases. The use of miniplate or screw osteosynthesis, now commonly accepted as a superior technique in craniomaxillofacial procedures, may simplify fixation of these calvarial nasal bone grafts with an apparent decrease in the risk of resorption.
