• Anatomic studies of the nose were done in 60 cadavers, both fresh and embalmed, allowing correlation of surgical anatomy and operative techniques. All septorhinoplasties were performed on fresh cadavers, using a clinical instrument set and head lamp. In addition, the alar cartilages were assessed in 25 patients undergoing external rhinoplasty. This multifaceted study provided an integrated approach to nasal anatomy.
