TAPIA C, Mario  y  SANTAMARIA C, Alfredo. New alternative for filling and camouflage of nasal dorsum: Mixed graft of L-PRF and cartilage. Rev. Otorrinolaringol. Cir. Cabeza Cuello [online]. 2018, vol.78, n.3, pp.235-244. ISSN 0718-4816.


Among the alterations of the nasal dorsum there can be found from a low radix to a severe crushing of the nasal dorsum, being fundamental the use of grafts and filling materials.


To propose a new filling and camouflage alternative in rhinoplasty by means of a mixed graft of L-PRF and chopped cartilage in an autologous fibrin matrix.

Material and method:

Evaluation of the operated patients of rhinoseptoplasty in whom the mixed graft was used between February and September 2016 in the Otorhinolaryngology unit of the Hospital Regional de Concepción. Evaluation of results regarding resorption and graft irregularities and self-assessment of degree of satisfaction.


Seven patients were operated. Four of them presented severe crushing of the nasal dorsum and three of them a deep radix. The filling and camouflage of desired area was achieved in all cases. There were no displacement or resorption of the graft in any case. The use of this graft did not mean greater economic cost, and the degree of satisfaction was high in all cases.


First study to use a mixed graft of cartilage and L-PRF in an autologous fibrin matrix in rhinoplasty, proving to be an affordable, effective, reproducible and safe alternative, particularly useful in revision surgeries.
