Congenital nasal pyriform aperture stenosis: Diagnosis, management and technical considerations.

CONCLUSIONS: Congenital nasal obstruction can be fatal in new-borns, CNPAS is a rare differential diagnosis that must be completely evaluated, properly treated with conservative management and if it fails, with well-planned and executed surgery. Follow-up shows high rates of success. PMID: 31495444 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Performance of mandibuloplasty is highly dependent on each surgeon's experience, and reproducing the results of simulation surgery is often difficult. In order to obtain successful clinical outcomes, a fast and efficient surgery technique that minimizes operation time and risk to patients is needed. The authors designed a 3D-printed mandible fit surgical guide for use as a bridge between simulation and actual surgery. The authors enrolled 7 patients with prominent mandibular angle who visited the outpatient clinic of the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Asan Medical Center in Seoul, Korea between Decemb...

Conclusion: The zygomaticosphenoidal angle is a useful reference, in conjunction with stereotactic navigation, for reduction of zygomaticomaxillary complex fractures. Contralaterally obtained patient-specific data may be used to guide unilateral repair. Normative values may serve as reference in bilateral injury.

Purpose: One of the most characteristic features in premature craniosynostosis is fronto-orbital retrusion. The standardized surgical technique of fronto-orbital advancement (FOA) can treat this (some) deformity, such as bilateral coronal synostosis. The purpose of the study is to investigate an available method to assess the postoperative outcome of the craniofacial surgery. Methods: From 2010 to 2015, 6 pediatric patients were taken the FOA in the Department of Burn and Plastic Surgery in the Children‘s Hospital of Nanjing Medical University. All the patients were performed the computed tomography (CT) scan pr...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to measure the cortical bone thickness of the infrazygomatic crest area in individuals with unilateral cleft lip and palate using cone beam computed tomography for placement of miniplates used for bone anchored maxillary protraction. Materials and Methods: CBCT scans were obtained from 31 non-syndromic UCLP children diagnosed with maxillary hypoplasia (17 males, 14 females, mean age: 11.9 years). 5 horizontal and 5 vertical reference planes were drawn at the infrazygomatic crest area. The cortical bone thickness at 25 intersection points on the cleft side and the non-cleft side was m...

In conclusion, by navigation with the drilling guiding templates and pre-bent titanium plates, the facial symmetry for patients with facial asymmetry was successfully restored after orthognathic surgery, same as applying CAD/CAM occlusal splints only. However, the drilling guiding templates and pre-bent titanium plates would provide a more accurate performance according to preoperative simulation, especially for proximal mandibular segments.

In conclusion, intraoperative CT allows real-time assessment of fracture reduction and immediate orbital implant revision, especially at posterior ledge. As a result, no postoperative imaging was indicated in any of the patients. Long-term follow-ups for orbital fracture patients managed with intraoperative CT is suggested.

Purpose: To reveal the presence and nature of exiting points of supraorbital region neurovascular structures and determine the distances of those structures to midline with computed tomography images by taking into account gender and sides in patients with migraine. Methods: The study was conducted retrospectively on computed tomography images of 70 migraine and 70 control patients with a mean age of 39.5 ± 13.8 years (range: 18–80). Presence and nature (foramen or notch) of exiting points of neurovascular structures in terms of side and gender in both groups, and the distances of these structures to ...

In this report, the authors introduce a rare complication after reduction malarplasty in 2 patients. One patient underwent temporal rhytidectomy and malar osteotomy. The other patient underwent zygoma grinding without osteotomy. Both patients presented malar depression and cheek ptosis after surgery and visited the clinic. Physical examination, cephalometric radiographs, and facial 3-dimensional computed tomography were conducted, which indicated total zygomatic arch bone resorption. After examining the possible causes of the complication, the authors concluded that preserving enough blood supply and performing adequate ri...
