TRAUMATIC LOSS OF SUBSTANCE OF A NOSTRILRHINOPLASTY WITH A DERMO-EPIDERMIC GRAFT

Arch Otolaryngol. 1928;7(6):601-605. doi:10.1001/archotol.1928.00620010629006
Abstract

I shall report the case of a young girl who consulted me for a loss of substance of the left nostril, which I restored by means of a dermoepidermic flap taken from the arm. As the injury is almost always repaired with a flap taken from the cheek, with a pedicle in a state of continuity, I believe it will be interesting to publish the technic that I employed, and the results I obtained; this, as an entity, presents a new method.

REPORT OF A CASE

History.—Miss V. L., aged 17, consulted me on Aug. 25, 1926, for a wound in the nasal region. She told me that at the age of 8 years she had been bitten on the nose by a horse. She was not treated by a physician at that time and could not furnish me with any information about the consequences of the trauma.
