To the Editor We have recently come across the article “Diced cartilage augmentation: early experience with the Tasman technique” by Baker1 in your journal, and congratulate him on his early results. We have had extensive use with using autologous fibrin glue and diced cartilage grafts in augmentation rhinoplasty as described in our article published in 2011.2 Our article, which included 68 patients from 2005 to 2008, is the first and the largest in the literature describing the use of autologous fibrin glue with diced cartilage grafts for dorsal nasal augmentation, which was recognized and cited in his article.
