TRIANGULAR SKIN GRAFT OF THE NOSE BY ANATOMICAL CONTIGUITY
Reconstruction of large nasal defects, represents a challenge for Dermatologic Surgeon. We present a 87-year-old patient, with a large dimension squamous cell carcinoma, 3x2cm in the dorsum and the root of the nose. The surgical defect had a triangular shape. The realization of a flap conditioned a great movement of tissue and time- -consuming surgery. Due to the patient co-morbidities, was performed a total skin graft, with the skin of the glabella. The glabella is a good resource to perform grafts in this area, with good cosmetic quality, minimizing technical difficulties and complications of more invasive procedures.
