Imaging in trauma of the facial skeleton and soft tissues of the neck.

Br J Hosp Med (Lond) 2020 Jun 12;81(6):1-15. Epub 2020 Jun 12.

Department of Radiology, Guy's Hospital, Guy's and St. Thomas' Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

Trauma to the face and neck is a frequent reason for emergency department attendance. Imaging is invaluable in the characterisation of such injuries, enabling delineation of fracture patterns as well as identification of vascular and other soft tissue injuries. It may also be used to prevent long-term mortality and morbidity and provide a roadmap for surgical intervention so that form and function may be restored. Read More

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Aylesbury, UK; Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK. Electronic address:

Introduction: Vascularised composite allotransplantation (VCA) permits like-for-like reconstruction following extensive soft tissue injuries. The initial management of extensive soft tissue injury can lead to the development of anti-HLA antibodies through injury-related factors, transfusion and cadaveric grafting. The role of antibody-mediated rejection, donor-specific antibody formation and graft rejection in the context of VCA remains unclear. Read More

Armed Forces, India.

Improvised explosive device blast injuries frequently report at our center and showed the maximum amount of contamination and damage, both in the facial soft tissues and the skeletal tissues with impregnation of splinters with size ranging from 2 mm to 10 mm. Should splinters be always explored is questionable and varies with every case. The reconstruction in such cases was done with titanium mini-plates along with extensive use of local vascular flaps for soft tissue repair in majority of the cases. Read More

Facial Nerve Palsy Associated With Orthognathic Surgery.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 May 4. Epub 2020 May 4.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dental School, Pontificial Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS), Partenon.

The authors report a 25-year-old female who presented facial palsy after undergoing bimaxillary orthognathic surgery for retrognathism correction. Orthognathic surgery is a procedure used to treat dentofacial deformities which aims to achieve an adequate relationship between dental archs, improving function (such as chewing, breathing, and speaking) and facial aesthetics. Even though there are some complications that can occur during the intraoperative and postoperative periods like bleeding, tooth, soft-tissue damage, nerve damage, bad split, infection, and nonunion, facial nerve injuries are considered rare complications after this kind of surgical procedure.

Facial Nerve Danger Zones.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 01;145(1):99-102

Miami, Fla.; and Dallas, Texas From Department of Plastic Surgery, University Of Miami School of Medicine; and the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute.

Facial nerve injury is one of the most feared complications in surgical rejuvenation of the aging face. Understanding the three-dimensional architecture of the facial soft tissue, the fascial planes that exist within this architectural arrangement, and the danger zones where the facial nerve is situated superficial and adjacent to the planes of dissection commonly used in face-lift techniques, are the keys to safety in preventing motor branch injury. The two-dimensional branching patterns of the marginal and cervical branches of the facial nerve are variable, making it difficult to ascertain exact nerve location when dissecting within the cheek and neck.

A Comparison of Ovine Facial and Limb Muscle as a Primary Cell Source for Engineered Skeletal Muscle.

Tissue Eng Part A 2020 Feb 7;26(3-4):167-177. Epub 2019 Oct 7.

Biomedical Engineering, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Volumetric muscle loss (VML) contributes to the number of soft tissue injuries that necessitate reconstructive surgery, but treatment options are often limited by tissue availability and donor site morbidity. To combat these issues, our laboratory has developed scaffold-free tissue-engineered skeletal muscle units (SMUs) as a novel treatment for VML injuries. Recently, we have begun experiments addressing VML in facial muscle, and the optimal starting cell population for engineered skeletal muscle tissue for this application may not be cells derived from hindlimb muscles due to reported heterogeneity of cell populations.

Alcohol Intoxication-Related Soft Tissue Injuries in Patients With Orbital Wall Fractures.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Oct;30(7):e646-e649

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Konkuk University School of Medicine, Konkuk University Chungju Hospital, Chungju, Korea.

Background: To date, involvement of alcohol intoxication (AI) in the occurrence of traumatic bone injuries has been well described in the literature. Still, however, there is a paucity of data regarding its involvement with soft tissue injuries in the oral and maxillofacial region. Considering that it is one of the significant predisposing factors that are involved in facial bone fractures in assault victims, we have speculated that they are also vulnerable to soft tissue injuries.

Smartphones: The new risk factor for traumatic dental and facial injuries in children.

Dent Traumatol 2020 Feb 20;36(1):76-78. Epub 2019 Nov 20.

Pedodontics & Preventive Dentistry, Centre for Dental Education and Research, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Traumatic dental injuries (TDI) have emerged as a significant global public health concern. One major problem which is developing and yet unreported is the incidence of traumatic dental injuries and soft tissue facial trauma due to the inadvertent falling of smartphones on to the face during their use in rest time. This is related to the weight of the smartphones and their excessive use in all parts of the world. Read More
