A new study examines the benefits and drawbacks of virtual surgical planning in craniofacial surgery.Plastic Reconstructive Surgery-Global Open (PRS Global Open)
Publication date: Available online 18 January 2019Source: Journal of Cranio-Maxillofacial SurgeryAuthor(s): Johannes Buller, Matthias Kreppel, Volker Maus, Matthias Zirk, Joachim E. ZöllerIntroductionPurpose of this study was to evaluate a probable risk of frontal sinus size for traumatic depressed anterior table fractures in patients with similar forehead trauma.MethodsWe conducted a retrospective case-control study with a case group of consecutive treated patients with displaced frontal sinus anterior table fractures. The control group was randomly sampled from patients who presented with a blunt forehead trauma in ...
We describe the case of a 19-month-old girl with a complete bilateral facial cleft. We describe the surgical steps taken to achieve the primary correction of the soft tissue deformation. Embryologic development and radiological approach are discussed, as are also the psychological and social aspects of severe facial deformities.
AbstractBackgroundCleft lip, and its association with cleft palate, is the most common craniofacial malformation worldwide, having a high incidence in the Hispanic population, with 9.6 cases being reported per 10,000 newborns. The standard treatment is cheiloplasty with satisfying functional result. However, the presence of the hypertrophic scar constitutes the most frequent sequel, requiring, in some cases, a new surgery. Said scar often becomes a social stigma of this pathology.MethodsAim: To determine if the application of type A botulinum toxin prior to the surgery, improves the aesthetical results of the surgery evalu...
AbstractDiprosopus is a rare craniofacial anomaly and is considered a subgroup of conjoined twinning. It encompasses a broad spectrum of duplications from single structure doubling to two completely formed heads on one neck. The aetiology of diprosopus remains a controversial topic, and many hypotheses exist. A multifactorial causal relationship is feasible because of the coexistence of other internal system anomalies of cardiac, gastrointestinal, neurological and respiratory origin. Ovid and PubMed databases were searched, using the key words: “diprosopus”, “craniofacial duplication” and “dup...
For “Is there a difference in orbital volume between affected and unaffected sides in patients with unilateral craniofacial microsomia?” (Gribova MN, Pluijmers BI, Resnick CM, et al. J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 Dec;76(12):2625-2629), the authors would like to amend the acknowledgment. The complete acknowledgment is listed below. This has since been updated online.
Median and paramedian craniofacial clefts are associated with hypertelorism, anterior encephalocele, positional abnormalities of the maxilla and nasal deformity. Cleft lip and palate, eyelid coloboma and widow's peak are frequently present.
As a specialized discipline within the field of medicine, pediatric craniofacial surgery is in its infancy. Dr Paul Tessier began his monumental work and created this practice just over 60 years ago. Since that time, it has become widely adapted and practiced all over the world. Whereas his original techniques have been modified and advanced, the spirit of his initial goals is very much alive. This issue of Clinics in Plastic Surgery reviews the current state of the practice from a diverse population of authors who are experts in their respective fields.
CONCLUSION:: Block bone graft could achieve comparable bone density and retain a greater amount of residual bone comparing to cancellous bone graft. PMID: 30621447 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS:: The CLOCK study represents an effort to overcome the challenges of characterizing the phenotypic and neurodevelopmental outcomes of CFM in a large, demographically and geographically diverse cohort. PMID: 30621445 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Laboratory training models enhance surgical advancements of residents with the purpose of familiarization of certain neuroanatomical structures and to promote a better surgical dexterity. The accessibility of animal brains render the capacity of the surgeon to exercise techniques outside the operating field, thus optimizing their outcome in human surgical procedures.
