Operative Unit of Maxillo-Facial Surgery, Otolaryngology and Dentistry, Fondazione IRCCS Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza, San Giovanni Rotondo (Fg), Italy.

Reconstruction of full-thickness total or subtotal lower lip defects represents a challenge for the reconstructive surgeon because of the difficulty to create a functional and aesthetically good lip. Many surgical techniques, going from local to free flaps, have been reported, each of them having its own advantages and disadvantages. In particular, the free fascio-cutaneous flaps in most cases are the first reconstructive option, even though several disadvantages such as the complexity of the procedure, longer operative times, morbidity, longer hospitalization, and conspicuous donor-site scar.

Vascularized Combined with Nonvascularized Fibula Flap for Mandibular Reconstruction: Preliminary Results of a Novel Technique.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Mar 6. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Peking University Shenzhen Hospital, Shenzhen, China.

Background: Repair of long-span mandibular defects with vascularized free fibular grafts is now a routine procedure. Vertical discrepancy between a graft segment and the occlusal plane can be resolved through several options, including delayed onlay bone graft, iliac bone reconstruction, fibula distraction, and double-barrel fibula flap grafts. The present study (level of evidence: level IV, case series) introduces a new method for mandibular augmentation, wherein a vascularized fibular segment was used to simulate the superior alveolar ridge of the neomandible, whereas a nonvascularized fibular segment was used to reconstruct the inferior border.

Refined Approach to Preservation of the Inferior Alveolar Nerve during Resection and Primary Reconstruction of the Mandible.

Craniomaxillofac Trauma Reconstr 2019 Mar 28;12(1):34-38. Epub 2018 Mar 28.

Department of Reconstructive Surgery, The Main Military Burdenko Hospital, Moscow, Russia.

Sacrifice of the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) during resection of the mandible is taken as a rule. In 1987, Jensen and Nock described a technique that permitted placement of dental implants in the atrophied mandibular alveolar ridge that lacked sufficient vertical height superior to the mandibular canal. This technique was used by some authors to preserve continuity of the IAN during resection of the mandible in patients with benign tumors. Read More

Combined Karapandzic-Abbé/Estlander/Stein flap for subtotal and total lower lip reconstruction.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2019 Mar 22;72(3):484-490. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, Wilmslow Road, M20 4BX, Manchester, United Kingdom.

Background: Lower lip reconstruction remains a challenging task due to multi-functional and high aesthetic requirements that have to be achieved for successful outcome. This is particularly true to near-total lower lip defects, encompassing over 70% of lower lip loss due to cancer, trauma or burns. Despite the fact that numerous flaps and their modifications have been described over the past century, only a few valuable techniques and concepts withstood the test of time for sub-total lower lip defects, each having their own drawbacks.

Division in Anatomy and Developmental Biology, Department of Oral Biology, Oral Science Research Center, BK21 PLUS Project, Yonsei University College of Dentistry, Seoul, Korea.

Cleft palate is one of the most common craniofacial defects in newborn babies. The characteristics of this genetic disease produce soft and hard tissue defects on the lip and maxilla, which cause not only aesthetic but also functional problems with speech, eating, and breathing. Bone grafts using autologous cancellous bone have been a standard treatment to repair the hard tissue defect in cleft palates. Read More

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust, Whitehaven, Cumbria, United Kingdom.

Cleft lip and palatal clefts are one of the most common birth defects with a global incidence of 1 in 700 live births. The majority of these orofacial clefts are nonsyndromic. However, a general screening for syndromes and other organ anomalies should always be performed as their association with orofacial clefts cannot be overlooked. Read More
