A Cadaver Study to Assess the Feasibility of a Cross-Nerve Transfer of the Infraorbital Nerve for Patients With Peripheral Infraorbital Nerve Injury

Conclusions The INB and SLB existed in all the specimens and could be found approximately 1 cm below the piriform aperture. The average distance between the INB and SLB was approximately 11 mm. These results imply the feasibility of a cross-nerve transfer of the distal part of the infraorbital nerve.

We present a case of MEC involving the palatal minor salivary gland of an adolescent patient successfully reconstructed using buccal myomucosal flap. The subject presented as a 17-year-old male with a painless left hard palatal mass found to have imaging suspicious for minor salivary gland tumor and punch biopsy consistent with a low-grade MEC. The subject underwent wide local excision of a 1.0 × 1.2 cm mass with 1.0 cm margins down to hard palate nasal mucosa excluding the abutting first and second molars of the ipsilateral maxilla. Pathology confirmed low-grade MEC confined to hard palate. Two weeks, thereafter, th...

In this study, we decided to investigate the changes in elasticity of the nasal tip using Columellar strut graft versus toung in groove method over a year after rhinoplasty.Materials and methodsIn this before-after randomized clinical trial study, 44 candidates for rhinoplasty were enrolled Columellar strut graft group (n = 22) and toung in groove group (n = 22). Also 22 patients who referred to ENT clinic without any previous rhinoplasty and without any decision for it during the next year, considered as control group. One group underwent columellar strut graft and the other one underwent tongu...

The objective of our study was to assess the relationship between postoperative opioid prescribing patterns and opioid consumption among patients who underwent septoplasty or rhinoplasty. A chart review of patients who underwent either septoplasty or rhinoplasty by 3 surgeons between July 2016 and June 2017 was performed, and pertinent clinical data were collected including the amount of narcotic pain medications prescribed. A telephone interview was then conducted to assess opioid usage and pain control regimen postoperatively. The number of opioid tablets prescribed and the number consumed were converted to total morphin...

ConclusionsIn the light of the data obtained from this study, we conclude that ONS is fairly common among rhinoplasty cases, and in order to prevent misunderstandings and medico-legal problems, it is essential to recognize this condition before undertaking rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, or any other surgical procedure.Level of evidence: Level V, diagnostic study.

Abstract Overzealous reduction during rhinoplasty may result in manifold functional as well as aesthetic injuries to the nose and is a prevailing antecedent of revision rhinoplasty. Although challenges for the revision rhinoplasty surgeon abound, careful assessment of the anatomic deficiencies of the nose, accurate evaluation and management of a patient's expectations, and precise planning and execution of surgical technique serve to facilitate a successful result. Contemporary techniques for correction of the over-resected nose are discussed, with special attention directed toward costal cartilage grafting and di...

Abstract Iatrogenic septal perforation is a complication of nasal surgery. Small or posterior perforations cause few symptoms, and need only conservative treatment. Larger and anterior perforations contribute to nasal airflow disturbances and external nasal deformities. When considering surgical candidacy, one should consider the severity of symptoms, location and size of the perforation, and need for revsional rhinoplasty. We repair perforations using intranasal mucosal advancement flaps augmented by an interposition connective tissue graft. Septal perforation repairs are tedious and technically challenging. We r...
