14 Harvesting cartilage and perichondrium from the cimbum concha. With the surgeon’s finger in the cimbum, the loose tissue is cleared from the plane of the perichondrium, a curvilinear incision is made through the cartilage. Fig. 15 A plane of dissection is then developed on the lateral (concave) side, leaving the perichondrium attached to the cartilage graft. The incision is then completed below (dashed line), and the composite graft is detached. technique is described here.
