Do Not Use Water Jets on Skin Hematoma.

Altern Ther Health Med 2019 Mar;25(2):46-48

Morel-Lavallée lesions are posttraumatic hemolymphatic collections related to shearing injury of variable mechanism (severe trauma or low-velocity crush injury), resulting in disruption of interfacial planes between subcutaneous soft tissue and muscle and perforating lymphatics and blood vessels. A 69-y-old woman, without medical history, was admitted to the emergency ward for important pain located from her behind to the anterior face of the thighs. Physical examination revealed large semirecent hematoma with a large soft fluctuant area with hypermobility of the skin and cutaneous hyperesthesia, spreading from her behind to the anterior face of her thigs.

Facial Fractures as a Result of Falls in the Elderly: Concomitant Injuries and Management Strategies.

Craniomaxillofac Trauma Reconstr 2019 Mar 17;12(1):45-53. Epub 2018 May 17.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School, Newark, New Jersey.

Mechanical falls are a common cause of facial trauma in the elderly population. It has been shown that the likelihood of sustaining a facial fracture due to a fall or activities of daily life significantly increases with age. Craniomaxillofacial fractures are most common during the first three decades of life; however, elderly patients more frequently require lengthy hospital stays and surgical intervention, and have shown increased complication rates compared with younger patients.

Sabri T Shuker

J Maxillofac Oral Surg 2019 Mar 29;18(1):124-130. Epub 2018 Mar 29.

1Formerly Head of Department of Maxillofacial Surgeon, Baghdad Medical City, Baghdad, Iraq.

Purpose: Current ballistics and high-energy explosion possess unnoticed, new and significant biophysics and pathophysiology wounding effects that are unique in comparison with civilian trauma. The primary blast wave effects of compressed air due to explosion lead to tattered and crushed eggshell injuries to the upper central midface (UCM). High-energy shell fragments of various shapes and sizes cause extensive destruction and are different from assault rifle's bullets that cause high energy transfer to the  creating a temporary cavitation.

Association Between Conventional Bicycle Helmet Use and Facial Injuries After Bicycle Crashes.

JAMA Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2018 Dec 13. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of California, San Francisco.

Importance: Bicycling is an increasingly common activity in the United States that is often associated with fall injuries to the head and face. Although helmets lessen head injury, their role in reducing facial injuries is less clear; therefore, it is important to understand the protective capacity for the face in current helmet design.

Objective: To estimate the conventional bicycle helmet's association with the rate of facial injury after bicycle crashes. Read More

Microsurgical Replantation of Completely Avulsed Nasal Segment.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Jan;30(1):208-210

Harvard Integrated Plastic Surgery Program, Boston, MA.

Complete avulsion of the nose is a devastating injury that may result in permanent disfigurement. Microvascular reattachment is technically difficult due to small size of the injured vessels, associated avulsion or crush injury, and relative inability to achieve venous anastomosis. This report describes a successful case of microsurgical replantation of the distal third of the nose in a 47-year-old patient after a dog bite injury with the use of a superficial temporal vein graft for arterial repair and leeching for venous outflow.

The surgical treatment of a displaced fracture of the clavicular shaft generally consists in an open reduction and plate fixation. The most common complications of the classic direct "transplatysma" approach are hardware related. These consist of simple hardware irritations requiring secondary plate removal but also feared wound healing problems ranging from dehiscence to superficial and deep wound infections. Read More

Treatment Strategies in the Management of Maxillofacial Ballistic Injuries in Low-Intensity Conflict Scenarios.

J Maxillofac Oral Surg 2018 Dec 2;17(4):466-481. Epub 2018 Feb 2.

Dental Centre, INHS Kalyani, Vishakhapatnam, Andhrapradesh India.

Introduction: The facial disfigurement and functional debility resulting from craniomaxillofacial injuries in low-intensity conflict scenarios can physically and psychologically traumatize the afflicted personnel. Efficient and definitive management, with complete esthetic restoration and functional rehabilitation, is not only an organizational obligation, but also a tactical necessity to maintain a high state of morale among the troops. There exist two schools of thought on principles of management of such injuries. Read More

Unusual Cause for Maxillofacial Injury.

Ann Maxillofac Surg 2018 Jan-Jun;8(1):166-170

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Army Dental Centre (R&R), New Delhi, India.

Penetrating facial injuries are potentially dangerous and may require emergency management because of the presence of vital structures in the face, and it may be life-threatening especially when the injury involves airway, major blood vessels, spinal cord, and cervical spines. Penetrating injuries of the facial region can occur due to missile injuries, blast injuries, motor vehicle accidents, and accidental fall on sharp objects. However, injury to face caused by the shattering of a protective helmet itself is extremely rare. Read More

A Patient With Severe Lower Face Degloving Injury.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Sep;29(6):e608-e610

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Hospital Regional do Cariri-HRC-Juazeiro do Norte, Ceará.

Avulsions of mandible are among the most devastating lesions observed in cranio-maxillofacial traumas. They present an important health problem because of the high risk of morbidity related to deformities that cause functional limitations and esthetic changes. The avulsions commonly result from high-energy effects, which cause complete or partial separation of the mandibular bone of the face. Read More

Nasal erosion as an uncommon sign of child abuse.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2018 May 21;108:95-99. Epub 2018 Feb 21.

Section of Public Health Pediatrics, Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children's Hospital Houston, TX, USA.

While various forms of facial trauma, bruising, burns, and fractures are frequently seen in cases of child abuse, purposeful nasal erosion has rarely been identified as a form of abusive injury. Progressive destruction of nasal tissue in children provokes a wide differential diagnosis crossing multiple subspecialties: infectious, primary immunodeficiencies, inflammatory conditions, malignancy, and genetic disorders. Progressive nasal erosion also can be a manifestation of child abuse. Read More

Is there more to the clinical outcome in posttraumatic reconstruction of the inferior and medial orbital walls than accuracy of implant placement and implant surface contouring? A prospective multicenter study to identify predictors of clinical outcome.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2018 Apr 1;46(4):578-587. Epub 2018 Feb 1.

Klinikum der LMU Muenchen, Klinik und Poliklinik für Mund-, Kiefer- und Gesichtschirurgie, Lindwurmstr. 2a, 80337, München, Germany.

Purpose: Reconstruction of orbital wall fractures is demanding and has improved dramatically with the implementation of new technologies. True-to-original accuracy of reconstruction has been deemed essential for good clinical outcome, and reasons for unfavorable clinical outcome have been researched extensively. However, no detailed analysis on the influence of plate position and surface contour on clinical outcome has yet been published. Read More
