Solid Implants in Facial Plastic Surgery: Potential Complications and How to Prevent Them.

Facial Plast Surg 2016 Oct 28;32(5):520-31. Epub 2016 Sep 28.

Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina.

Allogenic implants are an effective alternative to autologous grafts in the reconstruction of facial defects. These implants are used to reconstruct a variety of bony and soft-tissue defects, including the frontal and temporal regions; internal orbit; infraorbital rim; malar, paranasal, and nasal regions; mandible; and chin. In comparison to their autologous counterparts, alloplastic materials are more readily available, lack donor-site morbidity, decrease surgical time and cost, and still have relatively good postoperative tissue tolerance.

Clinical effectiveness and safety of collagen sheet for dorsal augmentation in rhinoplasty.

J Craniofac Surg 2014 Sep;25(5):1852-4

From the Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, CHA Bundang Medical Center, CHA University, Seongnam, Republic of Korea.

In Asian rhinoplasty, dorsal augmentation often requires the use of alloplastic materials because sufficient amounts of autograft are difficult to harvest. Given considerations of aesthetics, costs, and the characteristics of the oriental nose, silicone or Gore-Tex is commonly used when augmenting the nasal dorsum to a great extent. Such materials can often result in postoperative complications and foreign-body sensations. Read More

The use of membranes with immediate implantation is frequently debated. Differences of opinion occur as to whether membranes should or should not be placed; and when a decision is made to actually place a membrane, there are differences of opinion as to when, and how to place what membrane. This article presents a comparison between the use of resorbable and nonresorbable membranes in immediate implant placement situations and their selection criteria. Read More

Reconstruction of the maxilla with prefabricated scapular flaps in noma patients.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2008 Jun;121(6):1964-73

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Wilhelminenspital Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

Background: Noma (cancrum oris) is a devastating gangrenous disease that leads to severe tissue destruction in the face and is associated with a high rate of mortality. When untreated, it results in disfiguring midface defects and severe scarring. Ideal reconstruction of complex maxillofacial defects requires the restitution of bone, dental implants, soft tissue, and the thin and durable lining of the oral and paranasal cavities. Read More

Using a dense PTFE membrane without primary closure to achieve bone and tissue regeneration.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2007 Apr;65(4):748-52

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Temple University Hospitals, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

The most common types of barrier membranes used for bone or tissue regeneration are made of expanded-polytetrafluoroethylene (e-PTFE) or resorbable materials, such as collagen. Both the e-PTFE and resorbable membranes require primary soft tissue coverage. This article explores the use of a dense-polytetrafluoroethylene (d-PTFE) membrane, which does not require primary soft tissue coverage. Read More

Use of a biodegradable patch for reconstruction of large thoracic cage defects in growing children.

J Pediatr Surg 2006 Jan;41(1):46-9; discussion 46-9

Department of Orthopedics, University of Texas Health Science Center and Christus Santa Rosa Children's Hospital, San Antonio, TX 78229, USA.

Background/purpose: At our institution, procedures were developed to enlarge and stabilize the thoracic cavity of children born with severe-enough abnormalities of the thoracic cage as to result in lack of normal lung growth and function. In addition to the device known as the vertical expandable prosthetic titanium rib (VEPTR), some type of patch material was needed to cover large congenital defects of the chest cage owing to rib absence or to cover defects created because of the expansion process. Initially, synthetic material, polytetrafluorethylene (Gore-Tex, WL Gore and Associates, Flagstaff, Ariz) was used, but this proved itself to be restrictive over time and required removal. Read More
