A simple technique for the correction of maxillonasal dysplasia using customized expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) implants.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2017 Sep 5;70(9):1292-1297. Epub 2017 Jul 5.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Shanghai Jiaotong University Medical School, Ninth People's Hospital, China. Electronic address:

Background: The treatment of maxillonasal dysplasia in Binder's syndrome using autologous costal bone and cartilage is well established, but postoperative results may be compromised by scarring, unpredictable absorption of transferred autologous tissue, and donor site morbidity. Here, we propose a simple surgical technique to improve maxillonasal dysplasia using an expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) implant.

Materials And Methods: From February 1999 to May 2014, fifty-eight patients affected by maxillonasal dysplasia with different degrees of flattened nose and midfacial depression underwent surgical correction by augmentation of the nasal dorsum using an "L"-shaped ePTFE and subperiosteal implantation of an inverted "m"-shaped ePTFE at the base of the piriform aperture.

[Perioral treatment options in cosmetic facial surgery].

Ned Tijdschr Tandheelkd 2017 Jun;124(6):325-332

The perioral region is unique and important in the face, both from a functional and an aesthetic point of view. There is a strong relationship between the perioral soft tissues, such as the lips and the corners of the mouth, and the underlying dentition and the jaws. Perioral ageing phenomena, such as depressed corners of the mouth, volume loss and wrinkles, can be improved, however, to a limited extent with intraoral treatment. Read More

The position of the mental foramen in dentate and edentulous mandibles: clinical and surgical relevance.

Folia Morphol (Warsz) 2017 May 29. Epub 2017 May 29.

School of Medicine, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece.

Background: The knowledge of the exact location of the mental foramen (MF) in dentate and edentulous mandibles is clinically important when constructing complete dentures, performing anaesthetic block of the lower-anterior teeth area and intervening in the MF nearby area. In edentulous mandibles, the bone resorption after teeth loss makes the mental nerve (MN) prone to damage due to the extreme location of the MF very close to the alveolar crest (AC). Chronic compression on the MN may result in pain in the area of MN distribution (ipsilateral face and cheek area) and numbness at the lower lip. Read More

Gingival esthetics and oral health-related quality of life in patients with cleft lip and palate.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2017 Aug 7;46(8):993-999. Epub 2017 Apr 7.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), University Hospital Erlangen, Erlangen, Germany.

While the oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) is known to be reduced in patients with cleft lip and palate (CLP), its inter-dependency with the soft tissue characteristics of the CLP area remains unclear. This study aimed to evaluate the soft tissue characteristics in the treated cleft area in order to investigate whether gingival esthetics correlate with OHRQoL. Thirty-six patients with unilateral or bilateral CLP (46 cleft areas) were investigated after secondary/tertiary alveolar bone grafting and orthodontic/prosthetic implant treatment using an adapted score to rate gingival esthetics (clinical esthetic score, CES).
