We have retrospectively assessed the charts of 166 patients who underwent rhinoplasties from March of 2005 to July of 2007, in the Plastic Surgery Department of the University of Torvergata Rome, Italy. From the operation chart of each patient, we filled out a form with the following details: access incisions to the nasal bone cartilage skeleton, maneuvers performed on the inferior lateral and superior cartilages, implants and/or grafts used, procedures made to the nasal base, types of osteotomies, and number of concomitant septoplasties. All the patients were operated under total anesthesia. The results were plotted on tables and graphs. In percentages, each surgical maneuver was separately analyzed, the need for grafts or incision in relation to the total number of patients operated, thus allowing for a numerical analysis of the approaches carried out in rhinoplasty procedures performed in our department.

Abstract

We have retrospectively assessed the charts of 166 patients who underwent rhinoplasties from March of 2005 to July of 2007, in the Plastic Surgery Department of the University of Torvergata Rome, Italy. From the operation chart of each patient, we filled out a form with the following details: access incisions to the nasal bone cartilage skeleton, maneuvers performed on the inferior lateral and superior cartilages, implants and/or grafts used, procedures made to the nasal base, types of osteotomies, and number of concomitant septoplasties. All the patients were operated under total anesthesia. The results were plotted on tables and graphs. In percentages, each surgical maneuver was separately analyzed, the need for grafts or incision in relation to the total number of patients operated, thus allowing for a numerical analysis of the approaches carried out in rhinoplasty procedures performed in our department.
