BACKGROUND: The use of endoscopes in transnasal surgery offers increased visualization. To minimize rhinological morbidity without restriction in manipulation, we introduced the mononostril transethmoidal-paraseptal approach. METHODS: The aim of the transethmoidal-paraseptal approach is to create sufficient space within the nasal cavity, without removal of nasal turbinates and septum. Therefore, as a first step, a partial ethmoidectomy is performed. The middle and superior turbinates are then lateralized into the ethmoidal space, allowing a wide sphenoidotomy with exposure of the central skull base...

BACKGROUND: Although several methods have been described for total lower eyelid reconstruction, it remains as a major challenge in reconstructive surgery. Here, we present a new technique, the Mutaf unequal Z-plasty procedure for reconstruction of defects of the lower eyelid. METHODS: In this technique, 2 skin flaps designed in an unequal Z-plasty manner are used to provide skin coverage. Except for 2 patients whose additional upper eyelid defects were closed with Fricke flap, all patients were reconstructed with Mutaf unequal Z-plasty procedure...

BACKGROUND: Septal extension grafts are an effective means of extending nasal length in patients with a short nose. However, such grafts can be challenging in patients who only have small quantities of weak septal cartilage, such as some East Asian patients. We developed a rhinoplasty technique using ethmoid bone to create a cartilage-bone complex to overcome this issue, allowing adequate nasal lengthening. METHODS: Sixty-four women with short noses and inadequate septal cartilage determined by preoperative computed tomography underwent septal extension grafting with a cartilage-bone complex between January 2009 and December 2014...

INTRODUCTION: "As the septum goes, so goes the nose". A well-known phrase by Maurice Cottle forms the pillar of septoplasty. Since the inception of septal surgeries, numerous methods of septoplasty have been described. But, if not performed meticulously, may lead to deformity. For a successful surgery, understanding the anatomy and addressing the anterior nasal spine and maintaining the tip integrity is vital. AIM: To study the outcomes of "ROUND ABOUT technique" to correct deviated nasal septum which focuses on the importance of anterior spine and hence maintain the tip integrity...

The demand for cosmetic surgery has significantly increased in the past few years mainly due to economic rise witnessed in Brazil. The state of Bahia has predominately Afro-descendant population with the same countrywide scenario, where the surgeon must be able to face challenges such as the specifics demands of rhinoplasty in an ethnic nose. It represents not only a different nasal variety from the Caucasoid, but also a complex anatomical feature, with its own peculiarities, as thicker and oilier skin, with bulky fibrous fatty tissue with numerous sebaceous glands...

Perfection is sometimes approached in treatment of the crooked nose today but not fully achieved due to the continued existence of flaws. While the traditional surgical algorithm envisages the use of 2 series of procedures to straighten the nasal bones and cartilaginous septum, the addition of a third appears very useful with a view to obtaining truly excellent results, above all in the case of marked deviation. The authors present their experience in the use of certain procedures designed to correct asymmetry of the upper lateral and lower lateral cartilages, as well as the soft covering tissues where necessary...

The aim of this study was to clarify the morphological patterns and proportions of the components of the nasal septum. Anatomical examinations were performed on 70 nasal septums of embalmed Korean adult cadavers. The septal deviation was checked before cutting the nasal cavity midsagittally with the aid of a laryngoscope. The shape of each component of the nasal septum was identified, and photographs were taken from a midline sagittal view. A line was drawn on each photograph between the septal components, and then the area of each septal component was measured using software...

BACKGROUND: Nasal septal abscess (NSA) is a rare condition most commonly seen as a complication of nasal trauma. The diagnosis of NSA requires emergent treatment, because delayed management can result in significant morbidity. Typically, NSA presents as a purulent collection that can be managed with drainage, either surgically or at bedside. CASE REPORT: We report an unusual presentation of a spontaneous NSA in a 7-year-old boy as a solid nasal mass eroding the nasal septum...

The nasal septum is one of the rarest sites of origin of schwannomas. Recently, as the authors experienced a patient with nasal septal schwannoma completely removed by transnasal endoscopic approach, the authors tried to review all the literatures reported since Berlucchi's report in 2000. To the best of our knowledge, only 18 patients with nasal septal schwannoma in the literatures written by English-language have been reported. The purpose of this study is to describe our recent experience and thoroughly review our collected patients with nasal septal schwannoma with particular emphasis on therapeutic options...
