Deformity of the nose and its adjacent area has commanded deserved attention for many years. The often told art of nose-making, developed in India before the time of Christ, has formed the foundation from which to evolve a variety of flaps and techniques through the ages. A newer method, however, does not necessarily mean an improvement in repairing such a deformity. Rather, it gives the surgeon a procedure to add to his armamentarium and allows him to choose the most appropriate method for a… Expand

Topics from this paper

The reverse auricular flap: a new flap for nose reconstruction.
A new chondrocutaneous island flap from the ear helix for nose reconstruction is described, which has been used successfully in seven cases for reconstructing composite defects of the nasal tip and ala. Expand
A new retroauricular flap for facial reconstruction.
A retroauricular reverse flow flap based on the anastomosis of the frontal branch of the temporal superficial artery with the corresponding vessel of the opposite side as well as with the ipsilateralExpand
Le lambeau de conque à pédicule supérieur pour les reconstructions hélicéennes supérieures ou moyennes
La technique chirurgicale utilise la conque comme site donneur de cartilage permettant une reconstruction fiable de coloration and de souplesse adaptee en un seul temps operatoire en minimisant les sequelles du siteDonneur. Expand
[Conchal flap with a superior pedicle to reconstruct the middle or upper third of the auricle].
The middle or upper third of the auricle can be reconstructed with a composite chondro-cutaneous peninsular flap of the conchal part of the Auricle, allowing in a single operation a color- and texture-matched reconstruction. Expand
Correction of cryptotia using a subcutaneous pedicled flap.
This work has developed a method using a subcutaneous pedicle flap raised from the retroauricular region, where relative abundance of skin exists, for correctingCryptotia among orientals. Expand
The post- and retro-auricular scalping flap (the PARAS flap).
The study shows promise of an aesthetic flap for covering facial defects and more clinical work and long term follow-up are in progress. Expand
Nasal reconstruction using the Washio retroauricular temporal flap.
The results confirm that the Washio retroauricular flap is an excellent technique for difficult nasal reconstruction in young patients. Expand
The reverse auricular flap for the reconstruction of extended defects of the lower eyelid.
Using a condrocutaneous helix island flap, based on the frontal branch of the temporal artery, this work has been able to recreate morphology and function of the lower eyelid with a good cosmetic result in the donor site as well. Expand
The auriculomastoid fasciocutaneous island flap: A new flap for orofacial reconstruction
It is fascinating to follow the progress that led to the development of the AMFC by looking at the literature associated with this procedure during the past 70 years and identifying how each additional contribution in the literature significantly improves the design and versality of this flap. Expand
The posterior auricular flap: anatomical studies.
The conclusion was drawn that the auriculomastoid skin could safely be transferred on the posterior auricular vessels, either as an island flap or as a free flap. Expand
