SUMMARY Nasal ala, due to its characteristics, is a unique anatomical part of the body. Unfortunately, nasal ala often suffers traumas or is affected by cancers, the treatment of which can imply all-thickness amputation. In such cases, complex reconstruction is necessary to recreate both a satisfying cosmetic structure and to ensure free airflow. We present a clinical case of nasal ala major substance loss due to cancer, which was treated by use of the new Mutaf Triangular Flap.

Abstract

SUMMARY Nasal ala, due to its characteristics, is a unique anatomical part of the body. Unfortunately, nasal ala often suffers traumas or is affected by cancers, the treatment of which can imply all-thickness amputation. In such cases, complex reconstruction is necessary to recreate both a satisfying cosmetic structure and to ensure free airflow. We present a clinical case of nasal ala major substance loss due to cancer, which was treated by use of the new Mutaf Triangular Flap.
