Craniofacial abnormality with skeletal dysplasia in mice lacking chondroitin sulfate N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase-1.

Sci Rep 2018 Nov 20;8(1):17134. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

Department of Medical Cell Biology, School of Medicine, Aichi Medical University, Nagakute, Aichi, 480-1195, Japan.

Chondroitin sulfate (CS) proteoglycan is a major component of the extracellular matrix and plays an important part in organogenesis. To elucidate the roles of CS for craniofacial development, we analyzed the craniofacial morphology in CS N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase-1 (T1) gene knockout (KO) mice. T1KO mice showed the impaired intramembranous ossification in the skull, and the final skull shape of adult mice included a shorter face, higher and broader calvaria. Read More

Appraisal of the Free Ulnar Flap Versatility in Craniofacial Soft-tissue Reconstruction.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2018 Sep 5;6(9):e1863. Epub 2018 Sep 5.

Hansjörg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery, New York University Langone Health, New York, N.Y.

The unique anatomical characteristics of the forearm region make it especially popular as a free flap donor site for craniofacial soft-tissue reconstruction. The free ulnar forearm flap is less hirsute and allows for better concealment of donor site scar as compared with its radial counterpart. Despite these factors, the free radial forearm flap remains more popular among reconstructive surgeons. Read More
