Q: Is there a significant difference of the cartilage Life Term (resorption) between using diced cartilage wrapped in fascia and diced cartilage combined with Fibringlue without fascia? Is the fascia Important?
A: Fascia is more important to maintain the height, width and shape of the graft more than it is the viability. The potential issue with free fine-diced cartilage (FDC) versus diced cartilage fascia (DCF) is mobility and visibility. It is just as likely to remain viable, but it can shift or it can begin to show through the skin.
