BackgroundSeptal cartilage still is the most appropriate graft material used in rhinoplasty. In traumatic or revision cases, septal cartilage can be insufficient, and the need for an implant material emerges. In this study, the safety and efficacy of polytetrafluoroethylene (Gore-Tex) used as an implant material in nasal dorsal augmentation were assessed.MethodsThis study retrospectively reviewed 74 patients who underwent nasal dorsal augmentation with Gore-Tex. Of the 74 patients who underwent… Expand

Importance of Placing Gore-Tex in the Subperiosteal Plane for Augmentation Rhinoplasty
TLDR
In the cases of nasal dorsum augmentation, Gore-Tex can be a suitable graft material and recommend implanting graft materials at subperiosteal plane to provide better stabilization and low complication rates. Expand
Reconstruction of traumatic nasal deformity in Orientals.
TLDR
A porous polyethylene (Medpor) implant is an effective alternative to autograft for correction of traumatic nasal deformity in Orientals to achieve a pleasing appearance of the nose without donor-site morbidity. Expand
Secondary and the Use of Autogenous Rib Cartilage Grafts
TLDR
The authors prefer addressing most secondary rhinoplasty deformities by the external approach to help ensure consistent aesthetic and functional results. Expand
Histological study of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (Gore-Tex) implanted in the human nose.
TLDR
Based on this study, expanded polytetrafluoroethylene is a biocompatible material, but further long-term studies are necessary to address histological changes associated with the implantation of the material in the human nose. Expand
Use of Integra™ in Rhinoplasty
Different biosynthesized materials and autologous grafts have been used during many years so as to increase the size or to change the shape of the nasal dorsum in augmentation rhinoplasty. In orderExpand

TLDR
The authors analyze and discuss the use of autogenous rib cartilage in 54 patients who underwent primary and revision septorhinoplasty and suggest its use is also suggested in cases in which there is a need to have a fair amount of cartilaginous tissue to be grafted for nasal framework reconstruction and respiratory function improvement.

The Use of Spongostan-Wrapped Diced Cartilage Graft For Obtanining A Regular Dorsal Contour In Rhinoplasty Rinoplastide düzgün bir dorsal kontur elde etmek için spongostana sarilmiş kiyilmiş kartilaj greft kullanimi
TLDR
Spongostan wrapped diced cartilages graft seems to be a cheap, safe and effective method for obtaining a nice nasal dorsal contouring as well as for correcting and preventing of dorsal irregularities in rhinoplasty. Expand
A systematic review and meta-analysis of comparison between autologous costal cartilage and alloplastic materials in rhinoplasty.
TLDR
The analysis of available evidence suggests that ACC is preferred in revision rhinoplasty, which may explain its association with higher complication rates. Expand

TLDR
Gore-Tex is a safe and effective implant material to use in primary and revision rhinoplasty when augmentation is needed and autogenous material is not available or desirable. Expand
Nasal augmentation using Gore-Tex. A 10-year experience.
TLDR
Gore-Tex remains an effective implant material for nasal augmentation in rhinoplasty, and the risk of infection necessitating removal rises significantly in revision cases, where its use may still be desirable but must be weighed more carefully. Expand
A 6-year experience with the use of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene in rhinoplasty.
TLDR
It is of the opinion that, in rhinoplasty, with the exception of the nasal tip, columella, or problems in which corrections would require rigidity of the grafted or implanted material, the Gore-Tex alloplast is an excellent alternative to autografts. Expand
The use of Gore-Tex for nasal augmentation: a retrospective analysis of 106 patients.
TLDR
This analysis examines 106 patients over a 5-year time period in which the Gore-Tex soft-tissue patch was used in a wide variety of situations from extensive nasal dorsal reconstruction to small localized nasal defects or irregularities, revealing a stable implant material with no complications relating to the graft material.

Implants of Gore-Tex.
TLDR
Gore-Tex is a versatile material that seems to have a favorable future in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, and clinical studies will define that potential more clearly. Expand
Irradiated homologous cartilage grafts. Long-term results.
TLDR
42 of the original 107 patients who formed the initial population base were examined, finding that some patients have maintained satisfactory facial contour with fibrous tissue replacement of the cartilage in spite of complete graft resorption. Expand
Irradiated homologous costal cartilate for facial contour restoration.
TLDR
Results establish irradiated homologous costal cartilage as a valid implant material for facial contour restoration in a variety of anatomic sites and demonstrate that this implant is not easily infected. Expand
Polyamide mesh used in facial plastic surgery.
TLDR
The results in this series of 130 patients have been extremely good, probably better than can be obtained with any other type of alloplastic implant material or even with any autogenous graft. Expand
