With the progress in the stream of medical science, every day we come across various star-spangled inventions and hence it is astounding to see the kind of potential medical science holds today.

In a bizarre method that outweighs any medical procedure, a surgical team lead by Dr Ashwini Dash grew the nose of a boy, Arun Patel, on his forehead. The boy who lost his nose to pneumonia as an infant after the side-effects eventually destroyed his cartilage. As time went by, Arun, after a decade, has a new nose through a pre-fabricated forehead flap rhinoplasty.

The forehead flap is one of the oldest recorded surgical techniques for nasal reconstruction. As the gold standard for nasal soft tissue reconstruction, the forehead flap provides a reconstructive surgeon with a robust pedicle and a large amount of tissue to reconstruct almost any defect. The first phase started with the doctors infusing a special silicon tissue expander into the boy’s forehead which forces the skin and tissue to grow more than it should and it was injected with a special chemical.

In the second phase, they took from the lower part of Arun’s chest a cartilage to create a new nose and attached it to the growth on the forehead, together with the skin and tissue. The growth of the nose on the forehead gave the boy an odd appearance, however, the rich blood supply in that area helped in the healthy growth of the tissue. The doctors later removed the artificially sculpted nose, grafted it between the eyes and mouth and covered the area on Arun’s forehead. Since Arun comes from a poor family, the surgical team performed the surgery on Arun free of cost.

 

The Logical Indian appreciates this amazing effort by Indian surgeons and congratulates them for the success.
