Abstract

The maintenance of comminuted or otherwise unstable nasal bones in proper position following adequate operative reduction, may, on occasion, be a frustrating experience for both the patient and the surgeon. Migration of the fragments may compromise the aesthetic and functional results of well executed corrective nasal surgery. In this article, we will outline our successful, inexpensive approach to this occasionally challenging problem utilising an absorbable intranasal customised Surgical bolster.
