Description Objectives: To describe the clinical, histopathological and demographic characteristics of patients who underwent reconstruction of aesthetic nasal sub-units in the post-surgical management of skin cancer in a Latin American reference center.Methods: Case series of 82 patients who were reconstructed using a surgical method.Results: The population consisted mainly of women (63.4%). Melanoma was present only in males, and squamous cell carcinoma only in women. Basal cell carcinoma was present in 59.3% of women. The most common subtype found in the resection specimen was nodular basal cell carcinoma with a micronodular component (18.6%). Conventional surgery was the main type of tumor resection technique. The main method used for the reconstruction of the nasal units was skin grafting.Conclusions: Given the complexity in the nose reconstruction as part of the integrated treatment of skin cancer, it is important to show the experience that an oncology plastic surgery group has developed in the management of these patients.
Objetivos: Describir las características clínicas, histopatológicas y sociodemográficas de los pacientes que fueron sometidos a la reconstrucción de diferentes subunidades estéticas nasales posterior al manejo quirúrgico del cáncer de piel en un centro de referencia latinoamericano. Métodos: Serie de casos de 82 pacientes que fueron reconstruidos con algún método quirúrgico. Resultados: La población estaba conformada principalmente por mujeres (63,4%). El melanoma se presentó únicamente en hombres y el carcinoma escamocelular en mujeres. El carcinoma basocelular se presentó en el 59,3% de las mujeres. El subtipo más encontrado en el espécimen de resección, fue el carcinoma basocelular nodular con componente micronodular (18,6%). El principal tipo de resección tumoral fue la cirugía convencional y para la reconstrucción de las unidades nasales la principal forma utilizada fue el injerto de piel.Conclusiones: Dada la complejidad que existe en la reconstrucción de la nariz como parte del manejo integral del cáncer de piel, es de importancia mostrar la experiencia que un grupo de cirugía plástica oncológica ha desarrollado en el manejo de estos pacientes.
