Today I performed a very interesting case utilizing diced rib cartilage (rib grafts) as a graft to the face. The patient is a 53 year old male who had a brain tumor removed years ago. The neurosurgeons were required to make an incision above his eyebrow in order to gain access to and temporarily remove a portion of his temporal bone. Fortunately he is now disease free. However, he developed absorption of some of this bone which was associated with significant soft tissue atrophy in the area. As a result, the patient had a very large visible indentation of the tissues around his orbit (eye socket) as well as titanium plates and screws that were palpable and almost visible. In order to reconstruct this defect and restore somewhat normal anatomy, I removed the cartilage portion of two of his ribs, diced them up, filled the defect and then covered them up with connective tissue from his scalp. This was a very interesting case and he will get an amazing result which will likely be life-changing.
