Piezo-Assisted Dorsal Preservation in Rhinoplasty: When and Why.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2021 May 13. Epub 2021 May 13.

Plastic surgeon in private practice, Monterrey, Mexico.

Background: Preservation rhinoplasty philosophy with its "down techniques" is currently undergoing a renaissance. Its goal is to spare and preserve noble nasal structures such as ligaments, nerves and vessels, reducing to a minimum local tissue manipulation and avoiding the drawbacks and pitfalls associated with classic dorsal reconstruction techniques often resulting in irregularities which often lead to an increased rhinoplasty revision rate.

Methods: In this article, we reviewed 107 consecutive cases in which a variety of preservation techniques were used. Read More

Complex nasal reconstruction for skin cancer and posttraumatic deformity using a modified frontonasal flap - Case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2021 Apr 30;83:105944. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery, AARE KLINIK, Bern, Switzerland. Electronic address:

Introduction And Importance: Reconstruction of the nasal tip is challenging, especially when large defects are associated with compromised nasal soft tissues and framework. The frontonasal flap is an axial-pattern myocutaneous flap from the glabella and nasal dorsum that allows for various modifications in flap design to cover medium sized defects of the nasal tip.

Case Presentation: A 66-year-old male patient presented with a large and ulcerated squamous cell carcinoma of the nasal tip that was associated with substantial posttraumatic damage of the nasal soft tissue envelope and cartilaginous vault of the dorsum. Read More

Narrowing and Operated Appearance of the Middle Nasal Third after Hump Resection without Middle Vault Reconstruction.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 May 10. Epub 2021 May 10.

From Rhinology and Facial Plastic Surgery, Ear, Nose, and Throat Department, Cantonal Hospital St. Gallen; and the Finesse Center for Facial Plastic Surgery.

Background: Little is known about the incidence of narrowing and an operated appearance of the dorsum after hump resections if the dorsum is not reconstructed with spreader grafts or spreader flaps.

Methods: Patients who had undergone a composite hump resection (n = 22) or a component hump resection (n = 25) were interviewed and photographed with a minimum follow-up of 12 months. Four expert rhinoplasty surgeons and four laypersons rated the appearance of the middle third of the dorsum on the preoperative and postoperative en face photographs. Read More

Effect of a boomerang-shaped Conchal cartilage graft for Type three Tympanoplasty on Hearing.

Int Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2021 Apr 30;25(2):e289-e295. Epub 2020 Jun 30.

Department of Ear, Nose and Throat, Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, Pondicherry, India.

 Chronic suppurative otitis media atticoantral disease (CSOM-AAD) is often associated with ossicular erosion resulting in significant hearing loss. Absence of the stapes suprastructure is a poor prognostic indicator of hearing outcome, which necessitates an effective reconstruction technique for ossicular continuity and restoration of middle ear volume. In the present study, we used a boomerang-shaped conchal cartilage graft. Read More

Long-Term Quality of Life after Endoscopic Pituitary Adenoma Surgery with Nasoseptal Flap Reconstruction.

Rambam Maimonides Med J 2021 Apr 29;12(2). Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Rambam Health Care Campus, Haifa, Israel.

Introduction: Endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery (EETS) on the pituitary gland is considered safe and efficacious. The nasoseptal flap (NSF) is sometimes used to prevent or repair postoperative cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks. Few investigators have quantified long-term quality-of-life (QOL) outcomes regarding sinonasal measures after EETS, with or without involvement of the NSF. Read More

Integrated multi-modality image-guided navigation for neurosurgery: open-source software platform using state-of-the-art clinical hardware.

Int J Comput Assist Radiol Surg 2021 May 3. Epub 2021 May 3.

School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences, King's College London, London, UK.

Purpose: Image-guided surgery (IGS) is an integral part of modern neuro-oncology surgery. Navigated ultrasound provides the surgeon with reconstructed views of ultrasound data, but no commercial system presently permits its integration with other essential non-imaging-based intraoperative monitoring modalities such as intraoperative neuromonitoring. Such a system would be particularly useful in skull base neurosurgery. Read More

Elevated APOBEC mutational signatures implicate chronic injury in etiology of an aggressive head-and-neck squamous cell carcinoma: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2021 Apr 30;15(1):252. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Department of Dermatology, University of California, San Francisco, CA, 94115, USA.

Background: Aggressive squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) present frequently in the context of chronic skin injury occurring in patients with the congenital blistering disease recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa. Recently, these cancers were shown to harbor mutation signatures associated with endogenous deaminases of the active polynucleotide cytosine deaminase family, collectively termed APOBEC, and clock-like COSMIC [Catalogue of Somatic Mutations in Cancer] signatures, which are associated with normal aging and might result from cumulative DNA replication errors. We present a case of a nasal septal SCC arising in the context of recurrent injury, but also modest past tobacco use. Read More

Influence of skeletal class and facial type on nose dimensions in a Brazilian subpopulation: a CBCT study.

Braz Oral Res 2021 26;35:e036. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Universidade Estadual de Campinas - Unicamp, Piracicaba Dental School, Department of Oral Diagnosis - Oral Radiology, Piracicaba, SP, Brazil.

Evaluating factors that may influence the nose dimensions and, therefore, contribute to the singularity of a person, is important for obtaining a precise facial reconstruction (FR) in forensic anthropology. Thus, the aim in this study was to evaluate the influence of sex, skeletal class, and facial type on nose dimensions of Brazilian individuals using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans. CBCT images of 54 males and 67 females were classified according to skeletal class (class I, II, or III) and facial type (brachycephalic, dolichocephalic and mesocephalic). Read More

The Performance of Secondary Nasal Alar Base Revision for Unilateral Cleft Lip by Single YV-Plasty (the Importance of Overcorrection During Surgery).

Cleft Palate Craniofac J 2021 Apr 23:10556656211010609. Epub 2021 Apr 23.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Soseikai General Hospital, Kyoto, Japan.

Although primary surgery for cleft lip has improved over time, the degree of secondary cleft or nasal deformity reportedly varies from a minimum degree to a remarkable degree. Patients with cleft often worry about residual nose deformity, such as a displaced columella, a broad nasal floor, and a deviation of the alar base on the cleft side. Some of the factors that occur in association with secondary cleft or nasal deformity include a deviation of the anterior nasal spine, a deflected septum, a deficiency of the orbicularis muscle, and a lack of bone underlying the nose.

3D skull modelling and description of a new baurusuchid (Crocodyliformes, Mesoeucrocodylia) from the Late Cretaceous (Bauru Basin) of Brazil.

J Anat 2021 Apr 18. Epub 2021 Apr 18.

Laboratório de Paleontologia de Ribeirão Preto, FFCLRP, Universidade de São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto, Brazil.

Baurusuchidae is one of the most diverse groups of South American notosuchians, unambiguously recorded in Late Cretaceous deposits of Brazil and Argentina. The group is characterized by a reduced tooth formula, a lateromedially compressed rostrum, and a verticalized quadrate, representing one of the top predators of their faunas. Historically, skull morphology is the most employed tool to investigate the relationships of baurusuchids, as most of the species have been primarily based on cranial remains. Read More
