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.

Groningen, Zwolle, and Heerenveen, The Netherlands; and San Francisco, Calif. From the Department of Plastic Surgery, University and University Medical Centre of Groningen; the Department of Clinical Psychology, University of Groningen; Bergman Clinics; and Marten Clinic & Plastic Surgery, San Francisco, Calif.

Background: The aim of this study was to test the validity of the "orbital oval balance principle," a system of analysis and guideline that is used among aestheticians, artists, and makeup artists to create and design aesthetically pleasing eyebrows for optimal upper facial appearance. According to this principle, a face is optimally attractive when the eye is centered in an "oval" defined by the lid-cheek junction and the eyebrow.

Methods: One hundred participants were asked to rank digital morphed images of four female models with four different periorbital proportions: higher or lower lid-cheek junction versus higher or lower eyebrow position. Read More
