Medicina 33 – Dr. Armando Boccieri
Here are two interviews I gave to Medicina 33, the in-depth health program of Tg2.
The first interview has as its topic secondary rhinoplasty.
"The incongruous and excessive removal of cartilaginous parts of thenasal pyramid, during a primary rhinoplasty, can lead to aesthetic and functional problems. In particular, the functional ones are due to the collapse of the structure, which no longer allows normal breathing.
Through a small incision in the columellar area, we can have a wide exposure of the nasal pyramid and use cartilage grafts taken from the auricle.
The second interview has as its topic rhinoplasty in nasal trauma outcomes.
"Car accidents or sports traumas are the most frequent causes at the origin of a deflected nose with aesthetic deformities and breathing difficulties. The surgical difficulty consists in giving a stable result over time because the deviated cartilage structures tend to resume their vitiated position after surgery.
The most modern techniques make use of grafts taken from the nasal septum and fixed in the dorsal part of the septum to restore the right central axis and maintain it over time."
