Abstract: PURPOSE: Describe a modified technique to increase nostril cross-sectional area using rib and septal cartilage graft over alar nasal cartilages. METHODS: A modified surgical technique was used to obtain, carve and insert cartilage grafts over alar nasal cartilages. This study used standardized pictures and measured 90 cadaveric nostril cross-sectional area using Autocad®; 30 were taken before any procedure and 60 were taken after grafts over lateral crura (30 using costal cartilage and 30 using septal cartilag… Show more

“…The costal cartilage LCSG acts as an underlay batten graft at the external nasal valve to support weakened cartilaginous and ligamentous attachments, fill regions devoid of cartilage, and aid in structural reorientation. 2,13,14 This type of graft is a viable and versatile option in the management of EVD for both primary and revision rhinoplasty patients.…”

“…Therefore, autogenous rib grafting, which has been proved suitable for reconstruction in maxillofacial surgery, seems to be a good option. [18][19][20] In our initial report on autogenous rib grafts for reconstruction of the middle segment defect of the sternum, we maintained that our rib grafts offered important advantages over other materials, such as rigidity to eliminate the possibility of paradoxical chest movement, inertness to reduce the risk of infection associated with prosthetic materials, and radiolucency to facilitate radiographic inspection. Moreover, they offered good incorporation into the tissues and could easily be fixed under tension to the edges of the sternal defect.…”
