Autospreading Spring Flap Technique for Reconstruction of the Middle Vault
MetadataShow full item record
Reconstruction of the middle third of the nose is crucial and middle vault insufficiency is possible following dorsal reduction in a primary rhinoplasty unless additional surgical measures are taken. The aim of this study was to define a novel suturing technique autospreading spring flap for middle vault reconstruction by suturing only the medial aspect of both upper lateral cartilages with septal quadrangular cartilage in a unique mattress suture and to mimic the natural anatomical configuration of the upper lateral and septal cartilages. This technique is intended to create functionality with aesthetic dorsal lines.
