Relationship between P561T and C422F polymorphisms in growth hormone receptor gene and mandibular prognathism.

Conclusion: This finding supports that the GHR might be a candidate gene for mandibular morphogenesis in this population. PMID: 24654940 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In the mid-1950s and 1960s, Drs. Millard and Tessier revolutionized the treatment of cleft and craniofacial deformities. Since then, incredible advances have been established in the field of cleft-craniofacial surgery, but the surgeon-centered outcome measures have remained unchanged. The surgeon-based perceptions and judgments exposed in scientific meetings and articles have persistently been based on declarations of successful treatments such as “my surgery changed patients’ appearance”. The motto “show me your best result” was typically adopted by surgeons to judge their peers.

This article provides an overview of epidemiology, genetics, and common orofacial features of those with craniosynostosis. Patients with craniosynostosis require several surgical procedures along with continuum of care. The earliest surgical interventions are done during the first few years of life to relieve the fused sutures. Midface advancement, limited phase of orthodontic treatment, and combined orthodontics/orthognathic surgery treatment are usually required during later years. This article presents several examples of cases with outcomes associated with these procedures.

This study aimed to quantify skull base morphometry and intracranial volume to investigate their relationships with the severity of scaphocephaly.MethodsWe studied 66 infants with ISS identifying three groups according to the morphological severity of cranial deformity (group I: mild deformity; group II: moderate deformity; group III: severe deformity), by combining two scaphocephaly severity indices as descriptors of the relation of three morphological measurements (length, width and height) We perform a quantitative analysis using high-resolution CT images calculating following parameters: cranial fossae dimensions, supr...

ConclusionsEagle syndrome is a rare and possibly underdiagnosed cause of craniofacial pain. We present 5 new cases that exemplify both the symptoms and the potential treatments of this entity.ResumenObjetivosEl dolor orofacial y cervical es un motivo de consulta frecuente, que puede deberse a múltiples procesos patológicos. Entre ellos se encuentra el síndrome de Eagle, entidad muy infrecuente cuyo origen se atribuye a una osificación del ligamento estilohioideo o una elongación de la apófisis estiloides. Presentamos una serie de cinco pacientes con dicho diagnóstico.Materia...

AbstractParosteal osteosarcoma of craniofacial location was first described in 1961 and since then, less than 20 cases have been reported in the English literature. This rare tumour of the jaws most commonly affects middle aged men, is considered a low grade, well ‐differentiated neoplasm, characterised by spindle cell stroma with minimal atypia and rare mitotic figures, separating irregular well‐developed trabeculae of woven bone. It is considered to have a favourable prognosis and low metastatic potential if treated by radical excision, compared to conv entional and periosteal osteosarcomas. Clinically and radiograph...

CONCLUSIONS: The results of the national survey showed no consensus on routine use of preoperative vascular imaging. Our retrospective study showed a 30% prevalence of medialized ICAs in our patient cohort. In these patients, the MRA findings influenced the choice of speech surgery.

AbstractAnterior skull base (ASB) malignancies are rare entities characterized by delayed diagnosis and comprise a variety of distinct histological types. Their treatment involves clinical and surgical management, with the latter encompassing open and, more recently, endoscopic approaches. The craniofacial resection, as an open approach, has revolutionized the treatment of such diseases and is the gold standard, although significant morbidity and facial scars are a shortcoming. Seeking a less invasive alternative, many surgeons have approached these pathologies using the endoscopic endonasal approach, with the theoretical ...
