The Importance of Recognizing an Association between Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), characterized by cessation of breathing during sleep due to collapse of the upper airway, often interrupts sleep and results in cortical arousal or awakenings, after which normal breathing resumes. This cortical arousal component of OSA underpins the long-established association of OSA with comorbid post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)1. Confirmation of this association was recently (2017) provided by a meta-analysis which denoted a 76% (95% Confidence Interval (CI) = 44% — 93%) prevalence of OSA among PTSD afflicted military veterans when, during overnight sleep studies, the apnea-hyp...

Engineering a New Era: Will Autogenous Tissue Remain the Gold Standard for Head and Neck Reconstruction?
The evolution of head and neck reconstruction dates to approximately 1000 B.C. when Sushruta, the father of Indian surgery, introduced the theory for arguably the first regional pedicled flap in rhinoplasty. Ancient Egyptian, Greek, Persian and Indian civilizations expanded on this medical marvel by contributing to discoveries in human anatomy, while Roman physicians described possibilities for local tissue rearrangements for nearly all segments of the face. Following centuries of advancements through different eras with varying types of tissue transfer, the pioneering of free flap surgery dominated the 1960 ’s and 1...

Trigeminal neuralgia is characterized by unilateral pain in the region supplied by the sensory distribution of the fifth cranial nerve. Pharmacologic therapy is an adequate initial treatment option in 75% of patients. When the Jannetta surgical operation is not available or not indicated, and when conservative treatment fails to relieve the pain or the medication has to be discontinued due to side-effects, one of the remaining surgical options is cryosurgery in the peripherally distributed nerves that emanate from the trigeminal nerve.
