Virtual Surgical Planning: The Pearls and Pitfalls Virtual Surgical Planning: The Pearls and Pitfalls
A new study examines the benefits and drawbacks of virtual surgical planning in craniofacial surgery.Plastic Reconstructive Surgery-Global Open (PRS Global Open)
CONCLUSIONS: NSCS may be present with associated head shapes. Multiple early surgical reconstructive options are currently available for the disorder. Pediatric Dentistry practitioners must be familiarized with this condition and form part of a multi-approach health team as those responsible for the opportune oral health care of the affected child.

Conclusion: Monitoring cardiovascular and metabolic dynamics at PICU during the first 24 h after surgery is crucial. Additional studies are needed to define the threshold values of several metabolic and hemodynamic markers in risk assessment after cranial vault surgery. PMID: 29914256 [PubMed]
Conclusions This systematic review suggests that, the NAM appliance therapy can offer positive surgical, esthetic, functional, and socioeconomic effects on UCLP patients when performed before primary repair surgeries.
Opinion statementDiffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) arises from extranodal organs in about 30% of cases. Its prognosis and risk of recurrence in the central nervous system (CNS) vary according to the primary site of origin. Recent studies begin to clarify these differences using molecular classification. Testicular, breast, and uterine DLBCL (as well as possibly primary cutaneous DLBCL, leg-type) share a high prevalence of the non-germinal center B cell (non-GCB) phenotype and theMYD88/CD79B-mutated (MCD) genotype. These biologic features, which resemble primary CNS lymphoma, may underlie their stage-independent propens...

CONCLUSION: Monobloc procedures were associated with greater transfusion and longer ICU and hospital length of stay. Perioperative complications were more prevalent in the Monobloc group. PMID: 29920872 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Unilateral coronal synostosis (UCS) is the third most common type of craniosynostosis, after scaphocephaly and trigonocephaly, with an incidence of 13-16% (Selber et al., 2008; Di Rocco et al., 2009; Kolar, 2011).
Facial feminization surgery was pioneered in the 1980s to provide options for trans women who were having difficulty with their outward appearance. This process presented a novel application of craniofacial surgery at the time. This text outlines the basic differences between male and female facial morphology, as well as the procedures we use to feminize the face.
Conclusions Native American patients had a highly significant predisposition to violence and road traffic accidents resulting in maxillofacial fractures and CHIs. The high blood alcohol levels found in this group also reflected longstanding serious sociologic problems. This study provides a useful model to investigate the relative ethnic/racial role of comminuted paranasal structures for the protection of the brain (i.e., the crumple zone).
