Open Approach Rhinoplasty
The aim of this study was to present the advantages and disadvantages of open approach in rhinoplasty. In it, we also present the development of this technique in Croatia and examine its application in the last five years at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery of the Clinical Hospital Centre Osijek.
Retrospectively, from January 2008 to August 2012, 400 patients with septal deviation and/or deformities of the nasal pyramid who underwent open rhinoplasty at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery of the Clinical Hospital Centre of Osijek, Croatia were identified. The clinical diagnosis was based on a detailed medical history of the patient and nasal endoscopy. The patients were photographed in six projections before and after the surgery, and followed up on two occasions.
