Klinicheskaya Stomatologyia 2007: 1: 88–90 The authors presented their experience based on 30 secondary rhinoplasties over a 3 years period. The patients were followed from 3 months to 3 years post-operatively. The aetiology was trauma in 20 of them and iatrogenic surgery – in 20. 63% of the repair was performed using local tissues for revision, in 13% nasolabial flaps, in 7% septal flaps, in 7% flaps of the neck (trapezius, sternocleidomastoid, intraoral flaps, etc) and in 13% forehead frontal flaps. The surgical results was considered as satisfactory when a functional and aesthetical improvement were obtained and unsatisfactory when complications occurred, such as partial flap necrosis. 2 cases with severe traumas of the face were presented “before and after” pictures, but a detailed analysis of the choices of repair was not presented.
