Thermoresponsive Stiffness Softening of Hierarchically Porous Nanohybrid Membranes Promotes Niches for Mesenchymal Stem Cell Differentiation.

Adv Healthc Mater 2019 Apr 4:e1801556. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Centre for Biomaterials in Surgical Reconstruction and Regeneration, Division of Surgery & Interventional Science, University College London, 2QG, 10 Pond St, London, NW3 2PS, UK.

Despite the attention given to the development of novel responsive implants for regenerative medicine applications, the lack of integration with the surrounding tissues and the mismatch with the dynamic mechanobiological nature of native soft tissues remain in the current products. Hierarchical porous membranes based on a poly (urea-urethane) (PUU) nanohybrid have been fabricated by thermally induced phase separation (TIPS) of the polymer solution at different temperatures. Thermoresponsive stiffness softening of the membranes through phase transition from the semicrystalline phase to rubber phase and reverse self-assembly of the quasi-random nanophase structure is characterized at body temperature near the melting point of the crystalline domains of soft segments.

Extended L-Framework: An Innovative Technique for Reconstruction of Low Nasal Dorsum by Autogenous Costal Cartilage Graft.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2019 Feb 13;7(2):e2080. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Plastic Surgery Department, Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt.

Background: Congenital, iatrogenic, and traumatic etiologies can produce a deficient nasal dorsum requiring dorsal augmentation. Traditional techniques for dorsal augmentation as onlay dorsal graft, cantilever graft, or conventional L-framework usually have less stability and produce a rigid lobule if the single unit framework extends to the tip. Because of abundant volume and relative ease of harvest and carving, the autogenous rib cartilage has been considered the graft of choice for dorsal nasal augmentation when structural support is necessary and sufficient septal cartilage is not available.

Reconstruction of a subtotal septorhinectomy defect with a chimeric paramedian-pericranial forehead flap.

Am J Otolaryngol 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Otolaryngology and Facial Plastic Surgery Associates, Fort Worth, TX, United States of America.

The nose is a complex structure important for aesthetic appearance, social interaction, and respiration. Full thickness nasal defects with resection of the septum pose a significant challenge to the reconstructive surgeon due to the lack of local tissues to replace the nasal lining and significant risk of nasal collapse owing to the paucity of rigid infrastructure. The purpose of this paper is to present a unique case of nasal reconstruction utilizing a bilaminar paramedian forehead flap (combined pericranial flap and forehead flap) with embedded cantilever rib graft in a patient who underwent resection for an intranasal malignancy involving the septum and soft tissue envelope.

Cranial anatomy of the early cynodont Galesaurus planiceps and the origin of mammalian endocranial characters.

J Anat 2019 Feb 17. Epub 2019 Feb 17.

Museum für Naturkunde, Leibniz-Institut für Evolutions- und Biodiversitätsforschung, Berlin, Germany.

The cranial anatomy of the early non-mammalian cynodont Galesaurus planiceps from the South African Karoo Basin is redescribed on the basis of a computed tomographic reconstruction of the skull. Previously, little was known about internal skull morphology and the nervous and sensory system of this taxon. The endocranial anatomy of various cynodonts has been intensively studied in recent years to understand the origin of mammalian characters in the nasal capsule, brain and ear. Read More

Facial Plast Surg 2019 Feb 13;35(1):53-57. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

ENT, Facial Plastic Surgery, Cantonal Hospital St. Gallen, St. Gallen, Switzerland.

The reconstruction of the nasal dorsum after a hump resection is challenging if narrowing of the nose is to be avoided, the nasal skin is very thin, and the nasal bones are short. This report describes the replacement of the bony and cartilaginous nasal dorsum after resection with an anatomically shaped dorsal replacement graft of diced cartilage in fibrin glue. The technique is illustrated with a clinical case and sonographic morphometry of the nasal dorsum and tip. Read More

Various modifications of a vascularized nasoseptal flap for repair of extensive skull base dural defects.

J Neurosurg 2019 Feb 8:1-9. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

OBJECTIVEEndonasal surgery of the skull base requires watertight reconstruction of the skull base that can seal the dural defect to prevent postoperative CSF rhinorrhea and consequent intracranial complications. Although the incidence of CSF leakage has decreased significantly since the introduction in 2006 of the vascularized nasoseptal flap (the Hadad-Bassagasteguy flap), reconstruction of extensive skull base dural defects remains challenging. The authors describe a new, modified vascularized nasoseptal flap for reconstruction of extensive skull base dural defects. Read More
