Polyvinylsiloxane dental bite registration material used to splint a composite graft of the nasal rim.

Abstract

We describe the construction of a nostril splint made from heavy body silicone-based dental impression material. This bio-compatible material supported a large chondrocutaneous auricular graft during early healing. The splint immobilized and maintained the shape of the alar rim and was further used nightly during the expected period of wound contraction.
