Abstract

Summary Twenty cases of ˦sthetic rhinoplasty were studied using a small-bore polyethylene tube at the site of nasal infracture in an attempt to reduce post-operative tissue reaction. One side of each patient acted as a control. No advantage appeared to be gained from the use of the tube in reducing the amount of reaction. Following removal of the tubes, the amount of tissue reaction on each side became the same in most cases.
