Cranial Maxillofac Trauma Reconstruction DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1688697Frontal neuralgia causally related to trauma to the supraorbital and supratrochlear nerves remains a difficult problem to resolve. A peripheral nerve approach to this problem would involve neuroma resection and relocation of the proximal nerve stump to a location away from the vulnerable supraorbital ridge. A retrospective chart review was done to identify patients with frontal pain related to supraorbital trauma who underwent operative interventions to solve this problem by neuroma resection and relocation of the proximal stumps into the orbit. Eight pati...

Authors: Wolf A, Kondziolka D Abstract Radiosurgery is an effective treatment approach for the management of type 1 trigeminal neuralgia (TN), comparable to other ablative techniques. Also, radiosurgery can effectively treat TN secondary to other causes, including multiple sclerosis, tumor-related TN, as well as other craniofacial neuralgias in select cases with minimal complications. An increasing number of patients favor radiosurgery over other more invasive approaches in order to avoid a general anesthetic, a prolonged hospital stay, and a higher risk of complications.

Consider becoming a SIG 3 affiliate to connect with peers who share a passion for treating voice and upper airway disorders. What would you say to encourage other colleagues to join SIG 3? SIG 3 provides valuable opportunities to discuss clinical practice and research in voice and upper airway disorders, get advice from colleagues, and form lasting relationships with other clinicians with similar interests. If you have a strong interest in voice and upper airway disorders and want to expand your knowledge and your practice, it is an excellent resource. How has your involvement in this SIG improved your understanding of...

Authors: Hwang JK, Kim DS Abstract Epilepsy surgery revealed dramatically improved seizure outcomes over medical therapy in drug-resistant epilepsy patients. Children with epilepsy, however, have multiple epileptic focuses which require multilobar resection for better seizure outcome. Multilobar resection has not only the several severe surgical complications, such as hydrocephalus and shunt-related craniosynostosis, due to intracranial volume reduction. Isolation method (disconnection surgery) was progressively studied over epileptic focus removal (resective surgery) for seizure control. This concept was first int...

ConclusionSome times TMJ ankylosis can present with atypical presentations in which bones of the skull base are involved. These are very rare and could be termed as ‘skull base ankylosis’. Such cases can be surgically challenging and some surgical treatment modalities like Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS), 3D Navigation and Piezo-electric surgery could be beneficial in avoiding complications and facilitating efficient treatment.

Conclusions We describe and make available a novel validated method of measuring cranial defects. We find that the large majority of initial defects greater than 9 cm2 remain at least 1 in2 in size (2.5 cm2) 1 year postoperatively. In addition, there appear to be regional differences in closure rates across the cranium, with frontoparietal defects closing more slowly than those in the parietal region. This information will aid surgeons in the decision-making process regarding cranioplasty after craniosynostosis correction.

Abstract Congenital bifid tongue with cleft palate is a very rare malformation with different variations. We are reporting 2 cases of rare congenital bifid tongue with cleft palate in our hospital setting and their surgical management. A multidisciplinary approach, well-planned staged operations, rehabilitation, and follow-up are needed to achieve favorable outcomes. PMID: 31092003 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract This case describes a full-term baby with pyriform aperture stenosis who failed intranasal dexamethasone and reflux therapy. She underwent repair via a sublabial approach and inferior turbinate reduction. Symptoms initially improved but she was unable to be weaned from intranasal steroids. Three subsequent surgeries ensued, including lysis of synechiae, further turbinate reduction, and placement of custom nasal stents, which failed as they became clogged frequently and were easily dislodged, leading to increased intranasal manipulation and postprocedural inflammation. She was eventually fitted and dischar...
