Optimizing the Aesthetic Result of Parotidectomy with a Facelift Incision and Temporoparietal Fascia Flap.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2019 Feb 8;7(2):e2067. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Mass.

The 3 most common problems after a parotidectomy are cheek contour deformity, Frey syndrome (gustatory sweating), and a visible scar on the neck. These problems can potentially be prevented by (1) facelift type incisions, which eliminate the neck incision and (2) interposition of temporoparietal fascia at the parotidectomy site that fills the defect and provides a barrier to aberrant neuronal regeneration. We followed 11 patients who underwent parotidectomy (9 superficial and 2 total parotidectomies) for a variety of parotid tumors between December 2001 and January 2018. Read More

Temporoparietal Fascia Free Flap for Nasoseptal Perforation Repair.

Craniomaxillofac Trauma Reconstr 2018 Sep 25;11(3):238-241. Epub 2017 Aug 25.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, New York, New York.

Nasoseptal perforations can be a challenging defect for the reconstructive surgeon, with repair limited by the surrounding tissue availability and the defect size. In patients with a history of cocaine use, often the integrity of surrounding vasculature is questionable and large defects may not be well suited for local reconstruction. In the otolaryngology literature, several reconstructive options using local tissue and synthetic materials have been described, but there have been no reports of microvascular free flaps utilized in this regard.

Total Ear Reconstruction Using Porous Polyethylene.

Semin Plast Surg 2017 Aug 9;31(3):161-172. Epub 2017 Aug 9.

Craniofacial and Pediatric Plastic Surgery, Dell Children's Medical Center, Austin, Texas.

Total ear reconstruction has been approached by several techniques involving autologous graft, prosthetic implant, and alloplastic implant options. Recent studies have shown the superiority of porous polyethylene (Medpor, Porex Surgical) reconstruction over autologous reconstruction based on improved aesthetic results, earlier age of intervention, shorter surgery times, fewer number of required procedures, and a simpler postoperative recovery process. A durable and permanent option for total ear reconstruction, like Medpor, can help alleviate the cosmetic concerns that patients with auricular deformities may be burdened with on a daily basis.

A Temporoparietal Fascia Pocket Method in Elevation of Reconstructed Auricle for Microtia.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2017 Apr;139(4):935-945

Mibu and Koshigaya, Japan From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dokkyo Medical University Koshigaya Hospital.

Background: In two-stage procedures for reconstruction of microtia, an axial flap of temporoparietal fascia is widely used to cover the costal cartilage blocks placed behind the framework. Although a temporoparietal fascia flap is undoubtedly reliable, use of the flap is associated with some morbidity and comes at the expense of the option for salvage surgery.

Methods: The authors devised a simplified procedure for covering the cartilage blocks by creating a pocket in the postauricular temporoparietal fascia. Read More

Clinical Outcomes of Osseointegrated Prosthetic Auricular Reconstruction in Patients With a Compromised Ipsilateral Temporoparietal Fascial Flap.

J Craniofac Surg 2016 Jan;27(1):44-50

*Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Alberta †Institute for Reconstructive Sciences in Medicine, Misericordia Hospital, Covenant Health Group ‡Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.

Patients with major ear deformities and associated compromise of the superficial temporal artery are poor candidates for autogenous ear reconstruction because of a tenuous ipsilateral temporoparietal fascial flap (TPFF). Osseointegrated prosthetic auricular reconstruction (OPAR) is an alternative to contralateral free TPFF microsurgical and autogenous reconstruction, but data on clinical outcomes are limited. The records of patients with ear loss or major deformity and a compromised ipsilateral TPFF who underwent OPAR from 1989 to 2013 were reviewed. Read More

Pediatric skull base reconstruction: case report of a tunneled temporoparietal fascia flap.

J Neurosurg Pediatr 2016 Mar 6;17(3):371-7. Epub 2015 Nov 6.

Pediatric Neurosurgery, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago; and 

The authors of this report present a pediatric case involving the use of a tunneled temporoparietal fascia flap to reconstruct a skull base defect for a multiply recurrent clival chordoma and cerebrospinal fluid leak, demonstrate the surgical technique through illustrations and intraoperative photos, and review the pertinent literature. A 9-year-old female patient underwent extensive clival chordoma resection via both the endoscopic and open approaches, which ultimately exhausted the bilateral nasoseptal flaps and other intranasal reconstructive options. Following proton beam radiation and initiation of chemotherapy, tumor recurrence was managed with further endoscopic resection, which was complicated by a recalcitrant cerebrospinal fluid leak.
