The caudal extension graft is usually a cartilage graft that overlaps the caudal margin of the nasal septum. A combination of the caudal extension graft and the tongue-in-groove technique is used to stabilize the nasal base, set tip projection, and refine the alar-columellar relationship.

Control and maintenance of nasal tip position is critical in rhinoplasty. Two frequent methods to exert tip control are: columellar strut (CS) and caudal septal extension graft (SEG). However, no quan...
Hump reduction is one of the most common reasons patients seek cosmetic rhinoplasty. Spreader grafts or spreader flaps have become a key maneuver in supporting and reconstructing the nasal midvault af...
Ethnic rhinoplasty traditionally has been used to define this surgical procedure performed on non-Caucasian patients. Because of globalization, massive migrations, and interracial mixing, ethnic patie...
Sinus floor elevation (SFE) and simultaneous implant placement is predictable and reproducible. However, the graft material for the antral cavity remains a topic of debate. Considering the high osteog...
Tip plasty using a septal extension graft (SEG) is useful in the Asian population. However, complications such as decreased tip projection, infection, or deviation are noted post-surgery, and addition...
Caudal epidural anesthesia is one of the most common regional techniques used for post-operative pain management in pediatric patients. In this study we are going to compare the effects of...
Rhinoplasty remains one of the most challenging procedures in plastic surgery, and patients with cleft lip nasal deformity pose an even greater challenge, in which biggest issue is to achi...
The patients in this study are all born with a cleft lip and palate. They underwent several interventions in childhood to take care of it. Professor Gleizal offered them a secondary rhino...
Radiological study into the anatomical spread of caudal local anaesthetic in children age 1-7
Hypospadias is one of the most common congenital malformations of the genitalia in boys, and is typically managed by surgical intervention. During pediatric urological surgery, caudal anes...
The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.
An immunological attack mounted by a graft against the host because of tissue incompatibility when immunologically competent cells are transplanted to an immunologically incompetent host; the resulting clinical picture is that of GRAFT VS HOST DISEASE.
The survival of a graft in a host, the factors responsible for the survival and the changes occurring within the graft during growth in the host.
The induction of prolonged survival and growth of allografts of either tumors or normal tissues which would ordinarily be rejected. It may be induced passively by introducing graft-specific antibodies from previously immunized donors, which bind to the graft's surface antigens, masking them from recognition by T-cells; or actively by prior immunization of the recipient with graft antigens which evoke specific antibodies and form antigen-antibody complexes which bind to the antigen receptor sites of the T-cells and block their cytotoxic activity.
The stable placement of surgically induced fractures of the mandible or maxilla through the use of elastics, wire ligatures, arch bars, or other splints. It is used often in the cosmetic surgery of retrognathism and prognathism. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p636)
