Orocutaneous fistulas of odontogenic origin presenting as a recurrent pyogenic granuloma.

Arch Craniofac Surg 2019 Feb 7;20(1):51-54. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Inje University Haeundae Paik Hospital, Busan, Korea.

Orocutaneous fistulas, or cutaneous sinuses of odontogenic origin, are uncommon but often misdiagnosed as skin lesions unrelated to dental origin by physicians. Accurate diagnosis and use of correct investigative modalities are important because orocutaneous fistulas are easily confused for skin or bone tumors, osteomyelitis, infected cysts, salivary gland fistulas, and other pathologies. The aim of this study is to present our experience with a patient with orocutaneous fistulas of odontogenic origin presenting as recurrent pyogenic granuloma of the cheek, and to discuss their successful treatment.

Orbital wall restoring surgery with resorbable mesh plate.

Arch Craniofac Surg 2018 Dec 16;19(4):264-269. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dankook University Hospital, Cheonan, Korea.

Background: Orbital resorbable mesh plates are adequate to use for isolated floor and medial wall fractures with an intact bony buttress, but are not recommended to use for large orbital wall fractures that need load bearing support. The author previously reported an orbital wall restoring surgery that restored the orbital floor to its prior position through the transnasal approach and maintained temporary extraorbital support with a balloon in the maxillary sinus. Extraorbital support could reduce the load applied on the orbital implants in orbital wall restoring surgery and the use of resorbable implants was considered appropriate for the author's orbital wall restoring technique.

Use of resorbable mesh and fibrin glue for restoration in comminuted fracture of anterior maxillary wall.

Arch Craniofac Surg 2018 Sep 20;19(3):175-180. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Chonbuk National University Hospital, Chonbuk National University College of Medicine, Jeonju, Korea.

Background: The facial bone has a complex structure compared to other bones, and various types of fractures can occur due to its characteristics. Among them, in comminuted fractures of anterior maxillary wall, multiple depressed and impacted bony segments cannot be reduced easily when performing internal fixation using plates and screws or wires, and inadequate restoration leads to a range of complications. This paper introduces an alternative technique using a resorbable mesh with fibrin glue to restore comminuted fractures of anterior maxillary wall. Read More

Velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) is a common complication after primary palatoplasty. Although the several surgical treatments of VPI have been introduced, there is no consensus guide to select the optimal surgical treatment for VPI patients. The selection of surgical treatment for VPI depends on a multimodal patient evaluation, such as perceptual speech evaluation, nasometery and nasoendoscopy. Read More

Arch Craniofac Surg 2018 Jun 30;19(2):148-151. Epub 2018 Jun 30.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Soroka University Medical Center, Ben- Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel.

The nose is an important landmark of the face and its shape and beauty is of significant concern. The columella is the subunit between the two nostrils that provides support and projection to the nasal tip and has functional role in nostrils, as well as aesthetic. Ethiology for columellar absence or deficiency is diverse, and it is one of the most complex nasal subunits to reconstruct because of its narrow horizontal dimension, its tenuous vascularity and limited availability of adjacent tissue.
