Articulated rim graft

Annelyse C Ballin, Haena Kim, Elizabeth Chance, Richard E Davis
Surgical refinement of the wide nasal tip is challenging. Achieving an attractive, slender, and functional tip complex without destabilizing the lower nasal sidewall or deforming the contracture-prone alar rim is a formidable task. Excisional refinement techniques that rely upon incremental weakening of wide lower lateral cartilages (LLC) often destabilize the tip complex and distort tip contour. Initial destabilization of the LLC is usually further exacerbated by "shrink-wrap" contracture, which often leads to progressive cephalic retraction of the alar margin...

Secondary cleft rhinoplasty represents a particular surgical challenge. The authors have identified the deficit in skeletal projection of the cleft-sided piriform rim as an important contributor to the pathology. A graft is described to augment the piriform crest on the cleft side. This foundation graft is suture fixated to the piriform crest after complete release of all soft tissue attachments to the alar base. The foundation graft is articulated with a long alar strut graft, which allows for powerful projection of the cleft-sided nasal tip...

PURPOSE: An extreme extent of acetabular bone loss makes a primary stable cup fixation very difficult to achieve. No reliable operation method is as yet available. Defect filling with bone cement or bone grafts gives a high long-term failure rate. Further revisions are programmed. METHODS: The titanium pedestal cup possibly offers a solution to these situations. It is fixed in the load-carrying upper vital part of the pelvis. A guide is necessary for this step. The tapered pedestal is reinforced by two large wings for rotational and structural stability...
