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

New Reconstruction of Cranial Musculature in Ornithischian Dinosaurs: Implications for Feeding Mechanisms and Buccal Anatomy.

Authors:
Ali Nabavizadeh

Anat Rec (Hoboken) 2018 Oct 17. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Department of Biomedical Sciences, Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, Camden, New Jersey.

The charismatic and diverse ornithischian dinosaurs exhibited some of the most extreme examples of cranial anatomy, inspiring decades of investigation into their muscular anatomy. Current ornithischian jaw muscle reconstructions, although parsimonious, pose concerns of small adductor muscles and caudally displaced insertions relative to mandibular proportions. Here, craniomandibular material of ornithischian genera spanning all subclades is reexamined for osteological correlates indicative of intracranial and oral soft tissues. Read More

Maxillary Reconstruction Using a Gullwing Fibula Osteofascial Flap and Flexor Hallucis Longus Muscle.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2018 Jun 11;6(6):e1821. Epub 2018 Jun 11.

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgical Service, Department of Surgery, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, N.Y.

The appropriate reconstruction of an infrastructure maxillectomy defect requires vascularized bone for maxillary arch restoration, soft tissue bulk for filling the residual defect extending up to the orbital floor, and a thin tissue layer for resurfacing the palate and adjacent cheek mucosa. Although several free tissue flaps have been previously described as reconstructive options, each possesses limitations. We describe the fibula osteofascial flap with flexor hallucis longus muscle, no skin paddle, and a "gullwing" fascial component, as an ideal reconstructive option for these specific maxillary defects.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Jul;29(5):e459-e461

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Division, Hospital General "Dr Manuel Gea Gonzalez," Mexico City, Mexico.

Vascular abnormalities are localized structural irregularities, which are performed during vasculogenesis, angiogenesis, and lymphangiogenesis. The involvement of soft tissue in such vascular malformations is frequent; however, the compromising of the buccal fat pads (Bichat bags) is uncommon, even in specialized centers, such as the plastic clinic of our institution, in which very few patients have been reported in the literature. The purpose of this article is to present a series of 2 patients in which vascular malformations involving the buccal fat pads, which were extracted by intraoral approach. Read More

Tactile recovery assessment with shortened Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments in patients with buccinator myomucosal flap oral cavity reconstructions.

Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 Jun 2;22(2):151-156. Epub 2018 Feb 2.

Maxillofacial Surgery Operative Unit, University of Sassari, Viale San Pietro 43B, 07100, Sassari, Italy.

Background: The sensitive restoration is a primary aim of oral reconstructive surgery. The Semmes-Weinstein monofilament test is the "Gold Standard" to assess the threshold of tactile sensitivity on the skin but its use in the oral cavity is limited due to the size of the tools. We adopted half-cut Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments to evaluate the threshold of tactile sensitivity in oral reconstructions with buccinator myomucosal flaps. Read More
