Facial Plast Surg 2021 Jun 18. Epub 2021 Jun 18.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, München, Germany.

This study evaluates the surgical outcome and patient benefit after auricular reconstruction with porous polyethylene frameworks and temporoparietal fascia flaps in both children and adults. A total of 161 patients who had undergone auricular reconstruction between 2003 and 2014 by doctors in our department were asked to answer both a validated health-related quality-of-life questionnaire (Glasgow Benefit Inventory or Glasgow Children's Benefit Inventory) and a questionnaire reporting satisfaction, complaints, and complications with the reconstructed pinna. Furthermore, postoperative surgical complications were recorded. Read More

Reconstruction of a secondary scalp defect using the crane principle and a split-thickness skin graft.

BMC Surg 2021 Jan 18;21(1):41. Epub 2021 Jan 18.

School of Medicine, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: Scalp reconstruction is a common challenge for surgeons, and there are many different treatment choices. The "crane principle" is a technique that temporarily transfers a scalp flap to the defect to deposit subcutaneous tissue. The flap is then returned to its original location, leaving behind a layer of soft tissue that is used to nourish a skin graft. Read More

Role of the temporoparietal fascia free flap in salvage total laryngectomy.

Head Neck 2021 May 12;43(5):1692-1694. Epub 2021 Jan 12.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University Hospital of Verona, Verona, Italy.

The procedure for salvage total laryngectomy (STL) is burdened by a high rate of postoperative complications as a result of delayed wound healing in previously irradiated tissue. Several observational studies have investigated the role of prophylactic vascularized flaps to aid pharyngeal closure after STL and prevent the development of PCF. The use of a temporoparietal fascia free flap (TFFF) as an overlay flap for STL has been described previously in two published studies and both sets of authors agreed that the most obvious benefit of the TFFF in STL is a reduced PCF rate with low site morbidity and good functional outcomes.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Nov/Dec;31(8):2329-2330

Division of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM.

Self-inflicted gunshot wounds (GSW) to the palate result in complex bony and soft tissue trauma to the mid and upper face. Patients who survive these injuries are faced with significant speech and feeding difficulties. Upper and midface fractures open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is required for many of these patients, and consideration to incision planning is critical in order to preserve a primary option for oroantral fistula repair.

Endoscopic Endonasal Surgery for Resection of Giant Craniopharyngioma in a Toddler-Multimodal Presurgical Planning, Surgical Technique, and Management of Complications: 2-Dimensional Operative Video.

Oper Neurosurg (Hagerstown) 2020 07;19(1):E68-E69

Stanford University Medical Center, Stanford, California.

A 2-yr-old patient with a giant craniopharyngioma presented with seizures and panhypopituitarism.

Reconstruction of a scalp defect due to cochlear implant device extrusion using a temporoparietal fascia flap and a split-thickness skin graft from the scalp.

Arch Craniofac Surg 2019 Oct 20;20(5):319-323. Epub 2019 Oct 20.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Jeju National University College of Medicine, Jeju, Korea.

Cochlear implant extrusion, which is a common complication of cochlear implants, is generally repaired by a well visualized soft-tissue flap. A 61-year-old female patient with a medical history of schizophrenia who had a skin ulcer that caused cochlear implant extrusion, but that would be a stronger statement was referred to our department for removal of the implant and reconstruction of the resultant scalp defect. Accordingly, the broad defect was covered via rotation of a temporoparietal fascia flap (TPFF) using the superficial temporal artery, with the pedicle in the preauricular region as the pivot point.

Morbidity in Patients With Separation of Cartilaginous Framework: Temporoparietal Fascia Flap and Treatment With Dermal Regeneration Template.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Jan/Feb;31(1):107-109

Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara, Guadalajara, México.

Background: The full creation of an ear requires 2 reconstruction stages. In the second stage of reconstruction, the cartilaginous framework placed at first stage is separated from the head creating an auriculocephalic sulcus. Then a piece of rib cartilage is placed in the sulcus to maintain this separation and is covered with tissue that allows the integration of a full-thickness skin graft. Read More

Angiolymphoid Hyperplasia With Eosinophilia: New Concept to Lower Recurrence.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Jul;30(5):e386-e388

Plastic Surgery Department, Faculty of Medicine, Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt.

Angiolymphoid Hyperplasia with Eosinophilia (AHLE) is a rare benign vascular disorder of unknown etiology. While World Health Organization recognizes it as a benign neoplasm, its progressive nature and high recurrence rate are consistent with being a locally malignant tumor. It may present as solitary or multiple nodules with more predilection to head and neck region, especially auricular area. Read More
