Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The merits of septorhinoplasty, performed as a one-stage procedure of alleviate obstruction and improve the cosmetic appearance of a deformed nose, are described. The 2492 patients treated in an 8-year period attest to the frequency with which this defect presents in the community. An 80% improvement rate was achieved with the acquisition of skill, and no major defect was caused by the conservative methods employed.
