Peripheral facial palsy after set-forward orthognathic surgery: A case report and review of literature

We report a case of 23-year-old woman with signs of malocclusion, including pectus excavatum, wrist sign, and thumb sign for Marfan syndrome (MFS) underwent peripheral facial palsy after orthognathic surgery with mandibular advancement. Because cardiovascular, thoracic, and ocular abnormalities were absent, she was suspected of having MFS but not definitively diagnosed. On the other hand, she was diagnosed with a maxillary protrusion with mandibular retrognathism. After presurgical orthodontic treatment, we performed Le Fort I osteotomy and 8 mm advancement by bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy. Because the periosteum is vulnerable, we checked the bleeding more are fully and frequently during the operation than usual. The day after the operation, peripheral facial palsy with inability to wrinkle the forehead, blink, and grimace were found. The patient was administered mecobalamin, linear polarized infrared irradiation, and stellate ganglion blocks. The patient was also administered valacyclovir for 6 days and steroid pulse therapy for 7 days. Six months after the operation, the facial palsy had disappeared completely.In 58 previous reports, the facial palsy was induced by the reasons, including the operative procedure, postoperative hematoma, edema, perioperative stress, and tissue vulnerability. In the present case, because of the suspected MFS, tissue vulnerability was considered to be one of the major cause of facial palsy, which should be paid attenti...

Authors: Iwamoto J, Murakami M, Monma T, Ueda H, Tamamushi M, Konishi N, Yara SI, Hirayama T, Ikegami T, Honda A, Mizokami Y Abstract Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or low-dose aspirin (LDA) are the most common causes of drug-induced gastroduodenal ulcer and We investigated preventive treatment with use of concomitant anti-ulcer drugs and the clinical features of gastroduodenal ulcer in cases treated with these drugs. Patients with gastroduodenal ulcer and patients with bleeding were classified into 3 groups: LDA, non-aspirin NSAIDs, and those taking neither aspirin nor NSAIDs. Chronological changes...

AbstractThrombocytopenia is a common complication of critical care patients. The rates of bleeding events and mortality are also significantly increased in critical care patients with thrombocytopenia. Therefore, the Critical Care Medicine Committee of Chinese People ’s Liberation Army (PLA) worked with Chinese Society of Laboratory Medicine, Chinese Medical Association to develop this consensus to provide guidance for clinical practice. The consensus includes five sections and 27 items: the definition of thrombocytopenia, etiology and pathophysiology, diagnos is and differential diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

Performing endoscopy during the first six hours after a patient with gastrointestinal bleeding is handed off to a specialist does not lower the 30-day mortality rate compared to procedures done six to 24 hours after consultation, according to a new study of 516 volunteers reported in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine.Reuters Health Information

Authors: Mujer MTP, Rai MP, Atti V, Dimaandal IL, Chan AS, Shrotriya S, Gundabolu K, Dhakal P Abstract Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) include thrombin inhibitor dabigatran and coagulation factor Xa inhibitors rivaroxaban, apixaban, edoxaban, and betrixaban. NOACs have several benefits over warfarin, including faster time to the achieve effect, rapid onset of action, fewer documented food and drug interactions, lack of need for routine INR monitoring, and improved patient satisfaction. Local hemostatic measures, supportive care, and withholding the next NOAC dose are usually sufficient to achie...

Authors: Bazarbashi N, Miller M Abstract INTRODUCTION: Icosapent Ethyl (IPE) is a highly purified (>96%) form of eicosapentanoic acid, a marine-derived omega-3 fatty acid known to reduce serum triglyceride levels. Experimental and human studies also support anti-atherosclerotic properties of IPE including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, endothelial and plaque stabilizing effects. In the Reduction of Cardiovascular Events with Icosapent Ethyl-Intervention Trial (REDUCE-IT)l),the addition of 4 grams IPE daily resulted in a 25% reduction in cardiovascular events beyond statins and other standard of care therapies. ...

Most randomized clinical trials (RCTs) assessing the effects of initial anti-infective periodontal therapies use surrogate outcomes as primary outcome variables, such as mean changes in probing depth (PD) or in clinical attachment. However, these parameters do not reflect...

CONCLUSIONS: Non-surgical periodontal therapy was effective during the first 18 months, but periodontal conditions were worse at 48 months after therapy. The distal sites of abutment teeth with direct retainers presented the worst periodontal conditions. PMID: 32224546 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsConversion of prior Nissen fundoplication to RnY anatomy is technically challenging, although it is safe and feasible even in the setting of multiple prior foregut operations. A minimally invasive approach should be offered to patients by surgeons with experience in revisional foregut and bariatric surgery.
