Prediction of Number of Casts and Need of Tenotomy Using Pirani Score in the Management of Clubfoot
Background: Clubfoot also called as congenital tailpipes equinovarus is a complex ankle and foot deformity characterized by forefoot adduction and supination, midfoot cavus and hindfoot varus and equinus. It is estimated that more than 100,000 babies are born each year worldwide with clubfoot, and 80% are seen in developing nations. Different scoring systems are used for grading the severity of deformity or monitoring the natural history of clubfoot. The Pirani scoring system is now routinely used in most clubfoot clinics, including Cure Ethiopia, Children's Hospital. Methods: A facility based retrospective study was ...

Complication After PDO Threads Lift
Thread-lifting is as a minimally invasive procedure with limited scarring, rapid recovery, and fewer complications compared with the standard incisional surgery for facial rejuvenation. Using absorbable thread-like polydioxanone is a relatively simple procedure that is also performed by nonmedical professionals in Korea. Although several acute or delayed complications after using nonabsorbable thread types were also reported, it is uncommon to find cellulitis caused by a delayed complication after thread-lifting. A 41-year-old woman presented to our clinic with inflamed multiple palpable masses. She underwent 3 courses of ...

Van der Woude Syndrome With a Novel Mutation in the IRF6 Gene
Van der Woude syndrome (VWS) is a rare autosomal dominant disease, first reported in the literature in 1845 by Demarquay and subsequently thoroughly described in 1954 by Van der Woude.1,2 Van der Woude Syndrome is the most common form of syndromic orofacial clefting and individuals with this syndrome account for 2% of all cleft cases.3 Van der Woude syndrome clinically presents with congenital lip pits. These lip pits occur on paramedian portion of the vermillion border of the lip. In VWS, congenital lip pits occur in concurrence with cleft lip and/or cleft palate and represent the most common clinical problem occurring in...

Aesthetic and Functional Rehabilitation of Postburn Maxillofacial Deformity
Postburn maxillofacial deformities, although rare, are a significant cause of morbidity. Since contracture scars have a potential role in deforming the maxillofacial skeleton, the focus of treatment should be on growing patients, where scar contractures can drastically influence growth and morphology of the maxillofacial units. There are certain aspects of severe facial burns and deformities, especially of the jaws, that deserve sincere attention to overcome aesthetic and functional disabilities such as inability to masticate and incompetent lips. The purpose of this article, therefore, is to discuss these injuries, the me...

Partial Adenoidectomy in Patients With Palatal Abnormalities
Conclusion: This is the first systematic review of partial adenoidectomy in patients with palatal abnormalities. Sub-total adenoidectomy in patients with submucosal cleft palate or repaired cleft palate appears to be a safe and efficacious procedure. There is; however, a need for prospective data collection using a standardized technique in large patient series required to properly assess outcomes. (Source: Journal of Craniofacial Surgery)

Ultrasonic Piezoelectric Bone Surgery Combined With Leukocyte and Platelet-Rich Fibrin and Pedicled Buccal Fat Pad Flap in Denosumab-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw
Denosumab is an antiresorptive agent that is found as a humanized antibody, which inhibits the most critical pro-osteoclastogenic factor secreted by the cancer cells and shown to be required for osteoclast formation, function, and development. A severe side effect of denosumab is the osteonecrosis of the jaw (DRONJ). There are only a few studies on DRONJ treatment in the literature. The aim of this case report is to present the successful conservative management of DRONJ observed after tooth extraction at the posterior maxilla following the discontinuation of medication.

Extranasopharyngeal Angiofibroma of the Frontal Sinus
Angiofibroma is a rare tumor that accounts for about 0.05% of all head and neck tumors; it mainly occurs in the region of the nasopharynx. To date, no study originating in the frontal sinus has been reported. The authors report a report of an 18-year-old male complaining of severe pain in the right periocular area, forehead, and temporal area for 1 week. Endoscopic sinus surgery in combination with trephination was used to remove the tumor and the tumor was diagnosed as angiofibroma from histopathologic examination. It is hard to consider a tumor as being angiofibroma when it is not located in the nasopharynx. In particula...

Surgical interventions in the anterior region of the human mandible are associated with many complications. Some anatomical structures like the median perforating canal were discovered in mammals. Such canals may be a cause of concern that needs attention in human mandible. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the occurrence, location, and course of median perforating canal and its associated extensions in the anterior segment of the human mandible in cone beam computed tomography scans (CBCT). Data were collected from 160 CBCT scans, and evaluated. The incidence was 23.75% for median perforating canal with wid...

Reconstruction of Full-Thickness Defects of the Lower Lip With a Double Overlying Cervical Flap
Reconstruction of full-thickness total or subtotal lower lip defects represents a challenge for the reconstructive surgeon because of the difficulty to create a functional and aesthetically good lip. Many surgical techniques, going from local to free flaps, have been reported, each of them having its own advantages and disadvantages. In particular, the free fascio-cutaneous flaps in most cases are the first reconstructive option, even though several disadvantages such as the complexity of the procedure, longer operative times, morbidity, longer hospitalization, and conspicuous donor-site scar. To avoid these problems, espe...

Eagle Syndrome: A Wide Spectrum of Clinical and Neuroradiological Findings From Cervico-Facial Pain to Cerebral Ischemia
Eagle syndrome (ES) is a rare symptomatic condition generally caused by abnormal elongation of the styloid process or calcification of stylo-hyoid ligament. Patients with ES typically present a variety of symptoms, which range from mild discomfort to acute neurologic and referred pain in head-and-neck region. Eagle syndrome could be identified through physical examination but often goes undetected in the absence of imaging studies. Although uncommon, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis in patients with cervico-facial pain. The authors report 3 cases with clinical evidence of ES, including both neurolo...

Toothache as a Warning Sign of Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Postmortem Findings
The symptoms of sudden severe headache and/or diminished consciousness characterize the onset of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). However, several studies have suggested that some patients show an atypical presentation at the onset: symptoms lacking sudden headache and diminished consciousness. These atypical symptoms can easily lead to misdiagnosis. This paper reported the death cases of acute aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage with toothache as the first symptom, hoping to provide clinical evidence for the general public doctors to reduce the misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis of SAH, improve the identification ...

The Frontalis Muscle Flap: As a Salvage Procedure for Upper Eyelid in a Burn Patient
The ugly face of civil war shows itself in the desperate patients and their extreme sequellae. The options for reconstruction of patients with late-term serious sequellae decrease and their treatments also become more difficult. A 31-year-old male patient was injured 18 months ago due to a bomb explosion and received long-term treatment through local wound care in his country. A patient who is referred to us with such late-term ectropion and lagophthalmos is likely to have both morphologic and functional deterioration. A frontal muscle flap was planned for this patient.
