Intraoral Endoscopic Ligation of Maxillary Artery in the Infratemporal Fossa.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Jan;30(1):137-140

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Endoscopic Sinus Surgery and Skull Base Surgery, Autonomous University of Veracruz, Xalapa, Mexico.

Ligation of the sphenopalatine and posterior nasal arteries is indicated for posterior epistaxis as initial treatment or when conservative measures fail. In some patients, a transnasal approach or its alternative transantral approach are not possible due to tumor filling the nasal corridor, pterygopalatine fossa, or maxillary sinus. Aim of this study was to evaluate feasibility of endoscopically assisted transoral approach for the ligation of the maxillary artery (MA). Read More

Fibrous Papule: A Histopathologic Review.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Aug;40(8):551-560

Department of Pathology, Western General Hospital and the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

Fibrous papule (FP) is a common benign lesion located primarily in the nose. Although its histogenesis has been marred with controversies in the past, the dermal dendrocyte is now largely accepted to be the putative cell of origin. Histopathologic diagnosis of an FP is straightforward in most cases, which shows characteristics of an angiofibroma. Read More

Calvian Endo-pen: New Coagulation Forceps for Endoscopic Endonasal Transsphenoidal Surgery.

J Neurol Surg A Cent Eur Neurosurg 2018 Nov 6;79(6):524-527. Epub 2018 Jul 6.

Department of ENT, HELIOS Klinikum Erfurt, Erfurt, Thüringen, Germany.

Objective:  Over the past few years bipolar electrocoagulation techniques in neurosurgery have been continually improving. However, limited access during endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery (EETS) for central skull base pathologies and the requirement of very precise coagulation in that dedicated anatomical area requires further refinement of bipolar coagulation instruments. We describe our experience (effectiveness of coagulation, intraoperative handling, and the use as a dissecting tool) with a new type of coagulation forceps, the Calvian endo-pen (Sutter Medizintechnik, Freiburg, Germany) during EETS.

Current options for the treatment of facial angiofibromas.

Actas Dermosifiliogr 2014 Jul-Aug;105(6):558-68. Epub 2013 Mar 21.

Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital Universitario Reina Sofía, Córdoba, España.

Facial angiofibromas are hamartomatous growths that are closely associated with tuberous sclerosis complex and, in fact, they constitute one of the main diagnostic criteria for that disease. These lesions composed of blood vessels and fibrous tissue appear on the face at an early age. Since they have important physical and psychological repercussions for patients, several treatment options have been used to remove them or improve their appearance. Read More

Topical rapamycin therapy to alleviate the cutaneous manifestations of tuberous sclerosis complex: a double-blind, randomized, controlled trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of topically applied rapamycin.

Drugs R D 2012 Sep;12(3):121-6

Division of Child Adolescent Neurology, Department of Pediatrics, University of Texas Medical School at Houston, Houston, TX 77030, USA.

Background And Objectives: Facial angiofibromas are disfiguring facial lesions, present in up to 80% of patients with tuberous sclerosis complex. Recent elucidation of the complex cell signaling pathways that are disrupted in tuberous sclerosis indicates that rapamycin may be successful in alleviating the appearance of these lesions. The objectives of the current study were to evaluate the safety of topically applied rapamycin in patients with tuberous sclerosis complex and to determine its potential effectiveness in treatment of facial angiofibromas.

Trigeminocardiac reflex during the percutaneous injection of ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer (Onyx) into a juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma: a report of two cases.

J Neurointerv Surg 2011 Sep 16;3(3):263-5. Epub 2010 Dec 16.

Department of Interventional Neuroradiology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.

The trigeminocardiac reflex (TCR) is a rare but well-described phenomenon encountered during invasive procedures involving the face, orbit, and cranial base. The reflex is characterized by the abrupt onset of hypotension, bradycardia, asystole, and dysrhythmias. With temporary cessation of the surgical procedure, vital signs typically stabilize without the need for further investigation, though anticholinergic drugs are often used to prevent prolonged hypotension and bradycardia.
