AN INTERNALLY CONTROLLED, DOUBLE-BLIND COMPARISON OF THE EFFICACY OF ONABOTULINUMTOXINA AND ABOBOTULINUMTOXINA

Kartik D. Nettar, MD, and colleagues present the results of a blinded prospective trial comparing the efficacy of 2 commercially available neuromodulators used to treat lateral orbital rhytids. Ninety patients were treated with onabotulinumtoxinA to one side of the face and abobotulinumtoxinA to the opposite side of the face. The authors conclude that abobotulinumtoxinA offers superior efficacy in the treatment of lateral orbital rhytids compared with onabotulinumtoxinA.

ORBICULARIS MUSCLE POSITION DURING LOWER BLEPHAROPLASTY WITH FAT REPOSITIONING

Steven M. Couch, MD, and colleagues report on the intraoperative changes of the orbicularis oculi muscle relative to the inferior orbital rim during transconjunctival lower eyelid blepharoplasty with subperiosteal fat repositioning. The authors present the results of 30 consecutive patients undergoing the procedure and describe the surgical effect on the eyelid-cheek interface in the aging midface.

HINGED FOREARM SPLIT-THICKNESS SKIN GRAFT FOR RADIAL ARTERY FASCIOCUTANEOUS FLAP DONOR SITE REPAIR

Kofi Boahene, MD, and colleagues performed a prospective review of a modified technique in the harvest and application of split-thickness skin grafts from the primary flap donor site in forearm fasciocutaneous flaps. The authors used this surgical technique in 16 patients and conclude that it is a reliable method of repairing the radial forearm free flap donor site that offers a number of advantages over traditional methods.

The authors discuss the heterogeneous nature of these congenital lesions and highlight the variety of treatment options available, including medical therapy, laser photocoagulation, and surgery.
