Abstract

PIZZAMIGLIO, Diego Sherlon  and  BERGER, Cezar Augusto Sarraf. Comparative study of continuous lateral osteotomy and microperforating osteotomy in patients undergoing primary rhinoplasty. Int. Arch. Otorhinolaryngol. [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.3, pp.382-386. ISSN 1809-9777.  https://doi.org/10.7162/S1809-97772012000300013.

INTRODUCTION: Lateral osteotomies play an important role in rhinoplasty and can be performed with different techniques. OBJECTIVE: To compare the results of narrowing of the nasal dorsum and base through 2 types of lateral osteotomy: continuous and microperforating. METHOD: We selected 74 patients undergoing rhinoplasty: 37 patients underwent lateral continuous osteotomy and the other 37 underwent microperforating osteotomy, all performed by the same surgeon. We analyzed frontal photography from the pre- and post-operative (6 months) periods, evaluating the width of the nasal dorsum and base. This was a retrospective study. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Using Student's t-test, statistical analysis concluded that there was a statistically significant difference in the post-operative narrowing of the nasal dorsum and base following both osteotomy techniques, and there was no statistically significant difference between the 2 techniques.

Keywords : rhinoplasty; osteotomy; photography.
