Medicina 33 – Dr. Armando Boccieri
Here are two interviews with Medicina 33, a health-related in-depth Tv program that is part of the national TV News Program TG2.
The first interview focuses on secondary rhinoplasty.
"The incongruous and excessive removal of cartilaginous tissue of the nasal pyramid during a rhinoplasty can lead to both aesthetic and functional problems. In general, the functional ones are due to the collapse of the structure, which no longer allows the patient to breath normally.
With the open approach, through a small incision in the columellar area, we can obtain a large exposure of the nasal pyramid and employ auricular cartilage grafts to reconstruct the missing parts."
The second interview focuses on primary rhinoplasty for the outcomes of a nasal trauma.
"Road accidents or sports injuries are among the most frequent causes of a deflected nose with aesthetic deformities and breathing difficulties. The surgical difficulty consists in ensuring a stable result over time, because after the operation the deflected cartilaginous structures tend to return to the previous flawed position.
The most modern techniques make use of grafts taken from the nasal septum and fixed in the dorsal part of the septum, in order to restore the right central axis and maintain its position over time."
