    Revisiting lip shave: a solution for disorders of the vermilion border.
    Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2017 Dec 6. Epub 2017 Dec 6.
    Maxillofacial Unit, Poole Hospital NHS Trust, Dorset BH15 2JB, UK.
    Actinic keratosis, leukoplakia, carcinoma in situ, and superficially invasive carcinomas of the lower lip are caused mainly by the cumulative effects of exposure of the vermilion of the lower lip to ultraviolet radiation. Current treatments all have limitations: cryosurgery or electrosurgery is suitable to treat only focal lesions; topical chemotherapy, which is an option for diffuse actinic damage, yields unreliable results; and laser treatment fails to rejuvenate the vermilion. However, "lip shave", which involves full-thickness excision of the damaged vermilion and reconstruction with an advancement labial mucosal flap, will produce a fresh mucosal lining to the vermilion border.

    Three-Dimensional Computer-Assisted Two-Layer Elastic Models of the Face.
    Plast Reconstr Surg 2017 Nov;140(5):983-986
    Takatsuki, Osaka, Japan From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Osaka Medical College.
    To make three-dimensional computer-assisted elastic models for the face, we decided on five requirements: (1) an elastic texture like skin and subcutaneous tissue; (2) the ability to take pen marking for incisions; (3) the ability to be cut with a surgical knife; (4) the ability to keep stitches in place for a long time; and (5) a layered structure. After testing many elastic solvents, we have made realistic three-dimensional computer-assisted two-layer elastic models of the face and cleft lip from the computed tomographic and magnetic resonance imaging stereolithographic data. The surface layer is made of polyurethane and the inner layer is silicone. Read More

    Reconstruction of an Alar Defect With a Fusiform Nasolabial Turnover Flap With a Proximal, Superiorly Tapered Apex.
    J Craniofac Surg 2017 Sep 29. Epub 2017 Sep 29.
    *Division of Dermatology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx †Department of Dermatology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY.
    The nasolabial turnover flap was first described by Spear et al in 1987 for the coverage of full thickness defects of the lateral ala. It offered a single-stage repair that recreated the internal nasal lining, the external nasal valve, and the rounded contour of the ala without requiring a cartilage graft. A frequently encountered problem with the execution of Spear's original design is elevation of the ipsilateral commissure of the adjacent lip due to its broad proximal pedicle. Read More

    Topological cell clustering in the ATLAS calorimeters and its performance in LHC Run 1.
    Eur Phys J C Part Fields 2017 24;77(7):490. Epub 2017 Jul 24.
    CERN, Geneva, Switzerland.
    The reconstruction of the signal from hadrons and jets emerging from the proton-proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and entering the ATLAS calorimeters is based on a three-dimensional topological clustering of individual calorimeter cell signals. The cluster formation follows cell signal-significance patterns generated by electromagnetic and hadronic showers. In this, the clustering algorithm implicitly performs a topological noise suppression by removing cells with insignificant signals which are not in close proximity to cells with significant signals.
