Abstract

In 1947 Kazanjian and Holmes,1 of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, introduced a rongeur designed by Dr. Kazanjian for removing a nasal hump during rhinoplasty. This represented an important advance from the original technique, which had been virtually the standard since it was first devised by Joseph. The older method was to remove the hump by sawing or chiseling the bone and cartilage. This article is written as a report of 32 nasal reconstructions using the Kazanjian instrument for an oversized nose.
