Interest in the structural support of the nose is not new, for example 5,000 years ago the Egyptians were aware that the nose had to be supported while nasal fractures healed. This is evident in the Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus, which dates form 3,000 B.C. It says: "Instructions concerning a break in the column of his nose ... Treatment - thou shouldst cleanse it for him with two plugs of linen saturated with grease in the inside of his two nostrils. Thou shouldst put him at his mooring stakes until the swelling is reduced. Thou shouldst apply for him stiff rolls of linen by which his nose is held fast. Thou shouldst treat him afterwards with grease, honey and lint every day until he recovers."
