Gregor M. Bran, MD, and colleagues describe the use of a custom-made pressure device used as adjuvant therapy following treatment of auricular keloids by surgical excision and corticosteroid injection. The authors applied this device to 7 patients postoperatively and did not observe any keloid recurrences over a mean follow-up period of 24 months.
Noah P. Parker, MD, and colleagues present the results of an anatomical study of the orthodromic temporalis tendon transfer, a surgical technique used for the dynamic reanimation of the paralyzed face. The authors performed cadaveric dissections on 20 hemifaces to define the locations of relevant at-risk structures in the field of surgical dissection and to define the reach of the mobilized temporalis tendon during this reconstructive procedure.

The results were analyzed to determine the impact of surgery on patient perceptions of both nasal airway patency and cosmetic appearance of the nose.
Danny Meslemani, MD, and Robert M. Kellman, MD, performed a review of zygomaticomaxillary complex fractures. The authors highlight the classification, presentation, diagnosis, and management of this commonly encountered facial fracture pattern.
