Temporal bone trauma effects on auditory anatomical structures in mastoid obliteration.

Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Dec 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Department of Cervicofacial and ENT Surgery, Faculty of Dentistry, "Iuliu Hațieganu" University of Medicine and Pharmacy Cluj-Napoca, Str. Gheorghe Bilascu Nr. 16-20, Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

Purpose: The risk of temporal bone fractures in head trauma is not negligible, as injuries also depend on the resistance and integrity of head structures. The capacity of mastoid cells to absorb part of the impact kinetic energy of the temporal bone is diminished after open cavity mastoidectomy, even if the surgical procedure is followed by mastoid obliteration. The aim of our study was to evaluate the severity of lesions in auditory anatomical structures after a lateral impact on cadaveric temporal bones in which open cavity mastoidectomy followed by mastoid obliteration was performed, compared to cadaveric temporal bones with preserved mastoids.

Vasc Endovascular Surg 2018 Nov 29:1538574418814057. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

4 ENT Clinic of Red Cross Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Lymphangiomas are rare benign malformations of the lymphatic system, commonly present in children, over the head and neck area. Occasionally, they can grow significantly in size and especially those located over the cervical region can cause airway obstruction and become life-threatening. Recurrent lymphangiomas usually occur during the early postsurgical period and 80% of them within the first 3 to 5 years. Read More

Authors:
Joe Niamtu

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 Oct 24. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Private Practice, Cosmetic Facial Surgery, Midlothian, VA. Electronic address:

Purpose: Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is an uncommon autoimmune, neutrophilic, ulcerative skin condition of uncertain etiology believed to result from dysregulation of the immune system. Although this entity is well recognized by dermatologists, other specialists are less familiar with diagnosis and treatment. This report describes a severe PG reaction to an elective cosmetic facelift, which is believed to be the second reported case of PG after facelift surgery. Read More

Reconstruction of the Cheek.

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2019 Feb;27(1):55-66

Department of Otolaryngology, University of Colorado School of Medicine, 12631 East 17th Avenue, B205, Aurora, CO 80045-2527, USA. Electronic address:

The goal of cheek reconstruction is to restore an illusion of "normal." Attention must be directed toward the contralateral cheek skin color, texture, thickness, and contour, because this serves a template for reconstruction. The cheek is a peripheral facial subunit and largely frames the more central subunits (eyelids, nose, lips). Read More

Iatrogenic subcutaneous facial emphysema secondary to a Class V dental restoration: a case report.

Authors:
Py-H Chien

Aust Dent J 2018 Oct 1. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

The University of Queensland (UQ), Wide Bay Hospital and Health Services (WBHHS), Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Subcutaneous facial emphysema (SFE) following routine dental operative procedure is an uncommon but potentially life-threatening complication. The present case details a Class V restoration where air was introduced into the fascial tissue planes via the gingival sulcus from the use of an air-driven dental handpiece. Although the SFE is usually self-limiting within 3-10 days, such instances should be regarded as a medical emergency as in severe cases, the air may spread to the neck, mediastinum and thorax to result in cervicofacial emphysema with potential pneumomediastinum and pneumothorax.

Neurosteroid 17 beta-estradiol (E2) is a steroid synthesized de novo in the nervous system that might influence neuronal activity and behavior. Nevertheless, the impact of E2 on the functioning of those neural systems in which it is slightly synthesized is less questioned. The vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) adaptation, may provide an ideal arena for investigating this issue. Read More

Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a devastating disease that typically affects immunocompromised patients, chronically debilitated patients or drug users, but can also affect healthy patients. Necrotizing fasciitis can rapidly produce septic shock and requires immediate surgical management of the necrotic tissue. It is a bacterial infection that progresses rapidly and has a high mortality generally caused by aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. Read More

Rationale: Actinomycosis is a rare anaerobic, gram-positive bacterial infection caused by Actinomyces, which is part of the normal flora in the oral cavity and respiratory and female genitourinary tracts. The cervicofacial area is the most common site of involvement, and involvement of the central nervous system is rare.

Introduction: Extensive cervicofacial venous malformations (VM) pose significant challenges to a patient's quality of life (altered breathing, dysphagia, dysarthria). Treatment options include: 1) Surgical debulking; 2) Sclerotherapy; 3) laser therapy; or 4) Combined modalities. Recent studies have demonstrated the importance of multimodality and multidisciplinary management of these patients. Read More

J Contemp Dent Pract 2018 Mar 1;19(3):352-355. Epub 2018 Mar 1.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, College of Dentistry, University of Pernambuco, Camaragibe, Brazil.

Introduction: Odontogenic infections originate from a tooth or from its supporting structures, generally secondary to a pulp necrosis, periodontal disease, pericoronitis, apical lesions, or complications of dental procedures, which can be restricted to the alveolus or can reach the jaws and face through maxillofacial spaces. These are the most common conditions which affect the head and neck regions.

Aim: The aim of this study is to report a severe case of a cervicofacial odontogenic infection while discussing the most relevant aspects. Read More

Vascularization of the tumours affects the pharmacokinetics of bleomycin and the effectiveness of electrochemotherapy.

Basic Clin Pharmacol Toxicol 2018 Sep 4;123(3):247-256. Epub 2018 May 4.

Department of Experimental Oncology, Institute of Oncology Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Pre-clinical and clinical data indicate differences in the responses of melanoma and carcinoma tumours to electrochemotherapy. The purpose of this study was to investigate the origin of this difference, whether it is due to the intrinsic difference in tumour cell susceptibility to the chemotherapeutic, or due to the tumour micro-environment. For this purpose, we performed a pre-clinical study in B16F1 melanoma and TS/A carcinoma tumours in mice, in which the antitumour effectiveness of electrochemotherapy with bleomycin, the intrinsic sensitivity of tumour cells in vitro, the pharmacokinetics of bleomycin in plasma and tumours, and the vascularization of tumours in vivo were evaluated.

Rare Report of Unilateral Postauricular Dermoid Cyst.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 May;29(3):767-768

Department of Pathology, Soonchunhyang University Cheonan Hospital, Soonchunhyang University College of Medicine, Cheonan, Republic of Korea.

Dermoid cysts are benign developmental anomalies that occurred as a result of the sequestration of the skin along the lines of embryonic closure. Those occurring in the cervicofacial region are uncommon, accounting for about 7% of all dermoids and its presence in postauricular region is further exceptionally rare. A healthy 19-year-old Asian boy presented with a unilateral postauricular cyst that had been present since childhood without any symptom. Read More
