ANATOMICAL-SURGICAL ASPECTS IN THE TUMORS OF THE NASAL PYRAMID (Abstract): Reconstruction of facial skin defects can be a real challenge for the surgeon. Local skin flaps represent an optimal method of repairing facial skin defects due to tissue similarity as well as their availability. The nasal pyramid has a rigid, inextensible structure, which makes it necessary to use relatively large flaps, sometimes cut even from the nasal skin, so that there are no obvious scars or changes in the nasal symmetry, easily noticeable. Our retrospective study was carried out on a batch of 32 patients with tumour formations located at the level of the facial tegument. The objective was to identify morphological, functional and aesthetic results of the medical management in flap nasal reconstruction that consistently provide better aesthetic and functional results. The use of facial skin for the plasty of facial defects is ideal and is preferable when possible, the aesthetic results being close to ideal.
