CONCLUSION The compound gelatin-resorcin-formaldehyde (GRF) was a better stabilizing material for cartilage grafts in rabbits than butyl-2-cyanoacrylate. GRF was also better than the suture when comparing fixation of cartilage to the periosteum and inflammatory reaction. OBJECTIVE Cartilage grafting is an interesting option for refinements on(More)
PURPOSES This study aimed (a) to associate the House and Brackmann grading system with a method of photographic evaluation and distance measuring between predetermined facial points, (b) to evaluate the objectivity of the method presented, and (c) to establish the grading pattern values for this method and their corresponding degrees in the House and(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To evaluate the role of inferior turbinate reduction during rhinoseptoplasty in quality-of-life outcomes and nasal airway cross-sectional area. STUDY DESIGN Randomized clinical trial. METHODS Individuals over 16 years with nasal obstruction, candidates to functional and aesthetics primary rhinoseptoplasty, were evaluated from(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess quality-of-life outcomes in patients undergoing nasal tip surgery with the vertical dome division technique using validated instruments (Rhinoplasty Outcome Evaluation [ROE] and Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation [NOSE]). STUDY DESIGN Case series with planned data collection. SETTING Tertiary university center. SUBJECT AND(More)
INTRODUCTION Several experimental studies have shown osteitis after the onset of sinusitis, supporting the idea that bone involvement could participate in the dissemination and perpetuation of this inflammatory disease. However, procedures commonly performed for the induction of sinusitis, such as antrostomies, can trigger sinusitis by themselves. (More)
UNLABELLED Cartilage grafting is an interesting option for rhinoplasties refinements. AIM To compare butyl-2-cyanoacrylate, compound gelatin-resorcin-formaldehyde (GRF) and suture control to determine the efficacy of these tissue glue preparations in securing grafted cartilage. STUDY DESIGN Experimental. METHODS Fifteen male adult New Zealand rabbits(More)
BACKGROUND There is evidence that the nasal mucosa is affected by estrogen influence. Some authors have already detected estrogen receptors (ER) in the nasal mucosa. However, there doesn't seem to be a consensus about the concentration and distribution of the ER or the possible influence of hormonal contraceptives in the nasal mucosa. OBJECTIVE The study(More)
UNLABELLED Alloplastic materials can be used together with tissue and structure to close nasal septal perforation. AIM to test cellulose use in the closure of septal perforation in rabbits and to compare fibrosis, inflammation, vascular congestion and graft integrity. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifteen rabbits. The rabbits were divided into two groups: (More)
We used scanning electron microscopy to study and compare the histologic and ultrastructural aspects of the mucosa of the anterior portion of the septum (APS) and the anterior portion of the inferior concha (APINC) in 10 healthy adults and 10 cadavers. We found that (1) in most cases, the types of epithelium were generally the same in both(More)
