Table 2 Comparison of complication rates of different rhinoplasty grafts

From: Use of porous high-density polyethylene grafts in open rhinoplasty: no infectious complication seen in spreader and dorsal grafts

Grafts Movement of implant (N) Infection (N) Extrusion (N) Total rate of complication (%) Rate of rev surgery (due to complication) (%)
Dorsal 2 - - 5.3 2.6
Strut 3 2 - 21.7 21.7
Rim - - 2 20.0 20.0
Spreader - - - 0 0
Button - - - 0 0
Total 5 2 2 10.7* 9.5**
  1. *this indicates the overall rate of complication (9 cases in 84 grafts).
  2. **this is the overall percentage of revision surgery (8 cases in 84 grafts).
