Biography: Jamal Jomah
Aesthetic nasal dorsal reconstruction using sleeved micro-diced cartilage graftrnBackground: Aesthetic nasal dorsal reconstruction is associated with difficulty of long-term control of the graft contour and alignment. Fascia-wrapped cartilage has been shown to be histologically superior to Surgical-wrapped cartilage. The aim of this study was to present a technique involving use of a diced-cartilage graft engulfed in a sleeve of pre-mastoid fascia forrnaesthetic nasal dorsal reconstruction.rnMethods: A retrospective review of 25 patients’ medical charts was performed from April 2014 to September 2015. All patientsrnhad undergone nasal dorsal reconstruction using a diced-cartilage graft for various aesthetic indications.rnResults: The reconstruction technique described herein resulted in good surgical outcomes in all patients. One case of infectionrnoccurred, but no patients developed resorption.rnConclusions: Use of diced cartilage with pre-mastoid fascia provides good clinical outcomes of dorsal nasal reconstruction,rnand avoids morbidity at other sites.
