Prophylactic Use of Buccal Fat Flaps to Improve Oral Mucosal Healing following Furlow Palatoplasty.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 04;143(4):1179-1183

Chicago, Ill. From the Division of Plastic Surgery, Lurie Children's Hospital of Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine.

Furlow palatoplasty is increasingly used both for primary palatoplasty and for secondary correction of velopharyngeal insufficiency. Although Furlow palatoplasty offers the advantage of lengthening the palate, the most tenuous component of the oral mucosal repair is anterior transposition of the oral mucosal Z-plasty flap, with superficial separation of the oral mucosa observed in up to 53 percent of cases of secondary Furlow palatoplasty. To mitigate this problem, the authors prophylactically placed pedicled buccal fat pad flaps to provide an additional vascular layer to promote healing of the overlying oral mucosal Z-plasty flap.

Congenital Midline Cervical Cleft and W-Plasty: Our Experience.

Int J Otolaryngol 2018 2;2018:5081540. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

Department of Pediatric Otolaryngology, Robert Debre University Hospital, Paris, France.

Objectives: Congenital midline cervical cleft (CMCC) is a very uncommon congenital anomaly of the midline anterior neck, and although it has very pathognomonic features (including nipple-like protuberance), it could be mistaken for other congenital neck lesions, such as thyroglossal duct cyst and branchial apparatus anomalies. Thus, it represents a challenging diagnosis. In this 21-patient series, we discuss the clinical features of CMCC, its pathophysiology characteristics, and its modalities management. Read More
