    Rhinoplasty: Personal Evolution and Milestones 

    Plast Reconstr Surg 105: 1820-1852, 2000

          

    The author’s personal milestones in the advancement of nasal surgery are reviewed.

           

    G. R. Holt states that Dr. Sheen has been an innovator and aesthetic
    “engineer” of rhinoplasty.

           

    His milestones should read like a travel guide to all those who wish to improve their journey as responsible and capable rhinoplastic surgeons.

    Rhinoplasty in Unilateral Cleft Lip Nasal Deformity 

    J Laryngol Otol 114: 189-193, 2000

             

    This surgery is challenging. A surgical technique that achieves nasal symmetry in patients with deformity is described. 18 patients were operated. All reported long-term functional and cosmetic results. 4 patients required
    2nd stage adjustment. Second surgery was performed 6 months later.

           

    G. R. Holt states that it is the most difficult rhinoplastic surgery. It is quite important not to reopen the oral-nasal floor cleft when elevating the skin off the floor of the piriform aperture to prepare to insert a graft.

    Clinical Study and Literature Review of Nasal Irrigation 

    Laryngoscope 110: 1189-1193, 2000

           

    The efficacy of pulsatile hypertonic saline nasal irrigation in the treatment of sinonasal disease was examined in a prospective controlled clinical trial. 

            

    211 patients were treated with various sinonasal disease namely allergic rhinitis, aging rhinitis, atrophic rhinitis, and postnasal drip. For each nostril the fluid is used 250 mL of lukewarm water + ½ teaspoon of salt twice daily.

            

    The treatment was effective in improving symptomatically and has great potential, as it is inexpensive and overall well tolerated.
