Dr. Ransom and Colleagues Publish Studies Evaluating Rhinoplasty Surgical Instruments

Dr. Evan Ransom and three of his colleagues have published two companion articles exploring the evaluation and durability of certain instruments used in rhinoplasty surgery. These papers, the first titled “Quantifying the Sharpness of Osteotomes for Dorsal Hump Reduction” and the second “Osteotome Sharpness: Comparing the Major Manufacturers”, were published in prestigious Facial Plastic Surgery and Head and Neck Surgery journals. The goals of the study were to develop a model for testing surgical instrument sharpness and to measure the changes in this over repeated use. In addition, we explored some concepts in instrument maintenance and replacement, which can be both valuable to the rhinoplasty surgeon and help to improve surgical results. Dr. Ransom is a rhinoplasty specialist whose practice includes nose reshaping surgery for patients of all ages. He performs cosmetic rhinoplasty, functional rhinoplasty, and nasal reconstruction in San Francisco and Marin County, California.
