The most common etiology of nasal defects that require reconstruction is basal cell carcinoma, as well as squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. In reconstructing full-thickness ala nasi defects following excision of basal cell carcinomas, we present our technique of the nail enfolded local flaps which involves the harvesting of the nail plate and placing it(More)
