Background Fat grafting is a common adjunct procedure used to treat temporal fat hollowing in children with craniofacial anomalies. The goal of this study was to assess the surgical and aesthetic outcomes of this procedure. Methods We retrospectively reviewed patients who underwent temporal fat grafting at a single tertiary pediatric craniofacial center. The surgical outcome was assessed based on intraoperativeand 30-day postoperative complication rates. The aesthetic outcome was assessed by 3 independent investigators using a 3-point grading scale for preoperative temporal hollowing severity (1 = mild, 2 = moderate, ...

Since its first introduction, autologous fat grafting (AFG) has undergone multiple refinements and has become a common treatment option within plastic surgery. It is a safe, quick, economical, and minimally invasive method for volume augmentation and is finding its own indications in the pediatric craniofacial surgery patients. Because there is currently a paucity of literature regarding the use of AFG in the pediatric population compared with the adults, the authors performed a systematic review of the literature using PubMed, Cochrane Library databases, and the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery using the term...

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the synovial joint of craniofacial complex and is critical for dental occlusion, mastication, and speech. TMJ trauma and diseases, such as osteoarthritis, are debilitating and compromise quality of life. Current TMJ treatments are two-fold, involving either palliative care or invasive total joint replacement surgeries. There are no minimally invasive, regenerative TMJ therapies. We have identified TMJ-specific fibrocartilage stem cells that self-organize and regenerate cartilage, fat and vascularized bone. Here we define heterogeneous populations of TMJ fibrocartilage stem cells and the...

Craniofacial trauma accounts for a large number of medical encounters in the United States and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The role of imaging, particularly computed tomography (CT) and CT angiography (CTA) can significantly enhance the evaluation of patients with craniofacial trauma, assisting with appropriate management and surgical planning. Radiologic studies additionally provide information about soft tissue and vascular trauma which cannot always be excluded by physical examination.

CONCLUSIONS: This study, in Thailand, provides detailed age- and sex-specific normative data of the craniofacial measurements in children and adolescences based on CT imaging. These data can be used for evaluating individual patients with craniofacial abnormalities as well as determining the treatment in Thai and Asian populations, in whom craniofacial abnormalities, for example, frontoethmoidal encephalomeningocele, are common.

ConclusionIn craniofacial trauma, frequently involved site is the frontal bone, and its treatment should be completed more esthetically. Eyebrow approach is a good alternative to other surgical approaches, and it is a minimally invasive technique and thus should be practiced for esthetic management of frontal bone fractures.

AbstractHamamy syndrome (HS) is an autosomal recessive syndrome with a genetic origin that is very rarely observed. The syndrome with craniofacial dysmorphisms, including midface prominence, severe telecanthus, sparse lateral eyebrows, protruding ears, fronto-nasal abnormalities, lacrimal –salivary apparatus agenesis, thin upper vermillion border, myopia, mental retardation, sensorineural hearing impairment, congenital heart anomalies with intraventricular conduction delay, hypochromic microcytic anaemia and skeletal abnormalities of the long bones with recurrent fractures. In this paper, we report a case of two brot...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of an American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ACPA)-approved multidisciplinary team on velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) diagnosis and treatment. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort setting; tertiary children's hospital patients; children with cleft palate repair identified through procedure codes. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Velopharyngeal insufficiency diagnosis was assigned based on surgeon or team assessment. Age at diagnosis and surgery was recorded. Difference in age and rate of VPI diagnosis and surgery was analyzed with t test. Multivariate linear and logis...
