Ectopic Preauricular Sinus in a Facial Cleft and Microtia Patient.

Arch Craniofac Surg 2017 Dec 23;18(4):287-291. Epub 2017 Dec 23.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, National Medical Center, Seoul, Korea.

Preauricular sinus is a congenital malformation that is very commonly encountered among the general population and it has especially high prevalence among Asians when compared to other ethnic groups. It can often go unnoticed or easily overlooked by the patient or even by doctors because most of them are asymptomatic and is most of the time only a tiny pit that can be trivial in terms of aesthetics. We report a very rare and unique case that has no precedence what so ever; hence no reported case in the literature: an ectopic preauricular sinus in a facial cleft and microsomia patient. Read More

Mini-invasive surgery of infratemporal fossa schwannomas.

J Laryngol Otol 2015 Feb 8;129(2):187-93. Epub 2015 Jan 8.

Department of Otolaryngology and Skull Base Surgery,Nord University Hospital,Assistance Publique Hôpitaux de Marseille,France.

Background: Infratemporal fossa schwannomas are benign, encapsulated tumours of the trigeminal nerve limited to the infratemporal fossa. Because of the complications and significant morbidity associated with traditional surgical approaches to the infratemporal fossa, which include facial nerve dysfunction, hearing loss, dental malocclusion and cosmetic problems, less invasive alternatives have been sought.

Methods: This paper reports two cases of infratemporal fossa schwannomas treated in 2012 using mini-invasive approaches. Read More

Reconstruction techniques for tissue defects formed after preauricular sinus excision.

Arch Plast Surg 2014 Jan 13;41(1):45-9. Epub 2014 Jan 13.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Eulji University Hospital, Eulji University School of Medicine, Daejeon, Korea.

Background: Preauricular sinuses are congenital abnormalities caused by a failure of fusion of the primitive tubercles from which the pinna is formed. When persistent or recurring inflammation occurs, surgical excision of the infected tissue should be considered. Preauricular defects inevitably occur as a result of excisions and are often difficult to resolve with a simple suture; a more effective reconstruction technique is required for treating these defects.
