02 June 2008 (online)
A method is reported for the correction of the depressed nasal tip in the cleft lip deformities. Open exposure of the nasal frame, septal chondral anterior reinsertion, and lipocutaneous composite graft taken from the submastoid or retroauricular region and positioned at the basis of the columella are the main points of the method. The first results, in 22 patients, are discussed and seem promising.
