Introduction: The nose is the central and probably the most important organ of the face. In view of the three-dimensional shape and variety of tissues, reconstructive surgery after tumor resection in this anatomical region requires the surgeon’s knowledge of anatomy.
Materials and Method: In the years 2010–2019, 48 patients were treated in the Oncological and Reconstructive Surgery Clinic for extended nasal tumors, which required the use of free microvascular flaps after resection for functional and aesthetic supply of anatomical structures of the nose.
Results: In 48 patients, a total of 92 free microvascular flaps were used for nasal reconstruction including: radial forearm free flap in 24 patients, radial forearm free flap with radial bone in 14 patients, auricular free flap in 16 patients, radial forearm free flap in combination with auricle free flap in 7 patients, double auricular free flap in 6 patients, radial forearm free flap in combination with double auricular free flap in 4 patients. Total necrosis of the free flap was noted in 4 cases, partial in 6 patients.
Conclusions: The presented surgical techniques using microvascular free flaps constitute a recognized method of treatment and should be used in everyday surgeon practice. The results demonstrated in this article allow to obtain optimal functional and aesthetic effects.
