Abstract

Heminasal aplasia is a rare congenital nasal anomaly in which there is unilateral deficiency in both the external nasal anatomy and nasal airway. Unilateral failure in development of a nasal placode in embryogenesis is thought to be the underlying cause of this anomaly. The authors describe the reconstruction of heminasal aplasia in a teenager utilizing a templated cartilaginous framework and tissue expansion. The authors feel the satisfactory results of this technique will be of benefit to other surgeons who may encounter this rare anomaly.
