Chin Microgenia: An Anthropometric Analysis on the Prevalence and Severity in a Chinese Population
BACKGROUND The chin is an important component of facial harmony, and deficient chins are associated with unattractiveness. Previous studies have reported microgenia as the most common subtype of chin deformities. OBJECTIVE To investigate the prevalence and severity of microgenia in a Chinese population through facial anthropometric analysis. METHODS A total of 800 Han Chinese adults from various age groups of both sexes were recruited for facial anthropometric measurements and photographic analysis. Chin deficiencies in both sagittal and vertical dimensions were evaluated using G-S-P angle, chin retrusion...

Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans Recurrence After Wide Local Excision Versus Mohs Micrographic Surgery: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
BACKGROUND Local recurrence (LR) rates of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) treated with different surgical modalities are unknown. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the differences in LR rates of DFSP treated with wide local excision (WLE) versus Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Pertinent studies of DFSP treated with either WLE or MMS were identified through a search of multiple databases, including Ovid MEDLINE (1946–2018), Embase (1988–2018), Web of Science (1975–2018), and Scopus (1970–2018). Comparative 2-arm and noncomparative single-arm studies were assessed through meta-anal...
