ABSTRACT

Background: Although various techniques have been described for correction of crooked and saddle nose deformities, these problems are challenging with high recurrence and revision rates. Conventional septal surgery may not be adequate for nose reconstruction in crooked and saddle nose deformities.

Materials and methods: Between December 2005 and October 2009, six patients with crooked nose and five patients with saddle nose deformities underwent corrective surgery in our clinic. All patients were male, and the mean age was 21 years (range, 19-23 years). We used rigid radial bone graft to prevent redeviation and recurrence following corrective nasal septal surgery.

Results: The mean follow-up period was 28 months, ranging from 18 to 46 months. Mean operation time was 4 hours (3-4.5). All patients healed uneventfully. None of the patients required secondary surgery.

Conclusions: We believe that radial bone grafts offer a long lasting support in treatment of challenging cases with crooked and saddle nose deformities.

Mentions: The mean follow-up period was 28 months, ranging from 18 to 46 months. Mean operation time was 4 hours (3-4.5). Intraoperatively, it was found that septal cartilage was thickened and distorted in all cases. All patients healed uneventfully [Figures 4,5 and 6]. None of the patients required secondary surgery. The graft did not get displaced in any case, and did not develop unsightly irregularities over time. No absorption or extrusions of the grafts or infection were seen in follow-up period. Radial bone fractures were not seen in follow-up [Figure 3]. None of the cases had further neurovascular complications in follow-up. We have satisfactory results in our series of septal reconstruction using radial bone graft in 11 patients according to patient-related assessments.[8]
