Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Nasal bone stabilization, in the setting of comminuted nasal fracture or surgical osteotomy, represents a challenging surgical experience. Postoperative shifting of osseous fragments may result in compromised outcomes in an otherwise well-performed procedure. Although prior studies have reported nasal bone fixation with implementation of wires, plates, or halos, these techniques are often difficult to employ routinely. Herein, the authors describe a novel and facile technique for the maintenance of unstable nasal bones using customized intranasal bolsters.
