Update on reconstructive options for nasal Mohs defects 1.5 cm or less.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The article reviews the current literature to provide an overview on contemporary reconstructive options for closure of Mohs defects of the nose that are 1.5 cm or less. RECENT FINDINGS: Although some of the techniques described in the literature are of historical importance only, others have undergone modification and metamorphosis to be broadly used in their contemporary form. Others are implemented in their original design, irrespective of relative age or multiple attempted adaptations. The increase in variable closure options available provides the surgeon with the ability to tailor reconstruction in such a way as to maximize form and function for the patient. SUMMARY: Here we will provide an update on the core techniques in terms of subtle modifications, expanded applications, and examination of outcomes as well as newly described closure techniques that may fill a certain niche in nasal reconstruction.
