PMID:  4068118     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The external (combination) rhinoplasty approach and the sublabial approach to trans-sphenoidal adenomectomy have been used at this institution for seven years. A summary of experience with the external (combination) rhinoplasty technique in 10 patients is reported; and a comparison is made between this approach and the sublabial approach in 12 patients. Advantages unique to this approach are: the distance to the sphenoid sinus is decreased allowing greater ease of instrumentation, the Hardy speculum may be opened widely to increase exposure, uniquely this allows synchronous cosmetic or reconstructive septorhinoplasty, and this technique is also invaluable for revision surgery--especially when septal cartilage has been removed by a previous sublabial approach. Disadvantages of this technique are the external incision across the columella, which leaves an imperceptible scar of no clinical significance, and postoperative nasal tip edema, which resolves with time.
