Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO, USA. Electronic address:

Objective: The contour defect resulting after parotidectomy can be cosmetically unappealing. Multiple reconstructive efforts have been reported to mitigate this problem. We describe a novel technique of vascularized parascapular fat reconstruction based on the circumflex scapular vessels and evaluate its outcomes. Read More

Objective evaluation of orbito-zygomatic reconstruction with scapular tip free flaps to restore facial projection and orbital volume.

Oral Oncol 2021 Apr 10;117:105268. Epub 2021 Apr 10.

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery/Surgical Oncology, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre/University Health Network, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

Background: Restoring anatomical contour and position of the malar eminence and orbital rim following ablative mid-face procedures is critical in maintaining facial contour and orbit position.

Objective: To report our reconstructive approach using the scapular tip free-flap (STFF) for orbito-zygomatic defects, evaluating contour and overall shape restoration.

Methods: The study included 2 series: a clinical cohort of 15 consecutive patients who underwent an orbito-zygomatic reconstruction with a STFF and a cohort of 10 patients who had CT scan imaging but did not have orbito-zygomatic surgical resection or reconstruction. Read More

Complete corporeal preservation clitoroplasty: new insights into feminizing genitoplasty.

Int Braz J Urol 2021 Jul-Aug;47(4):861-867

Division of Urology, Hospital Universitario San Ignacio, Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogota, Colombia.

Introduction: 46,XX Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) remains the first cause of genital virilization and current surgical techniques aim to restore female aspect of genitalia while preserving dorsal neurovascular bundle but not at the expense of not preserving erectile tissue. We aim to report our experience with a new surgical technique for clitoroplasty, completely preserving corporeal bodies, neurovascular bundles without dismembering the clitoris, in four patients with over a year follow up.

Materials And Methods: After IRB approval four patients with 46,XX CAH and Prader 5 and 3 external genitalia, underwent feminizing genitoplasty. Read More

Buccal Pedicle Flap Combined with Porcine Collagen Matrix: a Follow-up of 2 years on 40 Consecutive Cases.

Clin Adv Periodontics 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Director O.R.E.C.-Oral Reconstruction and Education Center Rome (Italy), Via Rovereto 6, Rome, 00198, Italy.

Introduction: A thick peri-implant mucosa is of importance to prevent recession, color alterations, bone remodeling and promote "creeping attachment". A volume stable porcine cross-linked collagen matrix has been recently introduced for soft tissue regeneration and volume maintenance. The aim of this study was to investigate peri-implant soft tissue healing and stability on 40 consecutive patients treated with buccal pedicle flap combined with the use of the collagen matrix.
