Rhinoplasty necessitates use of a varied spectrum of techniques tailored to each patient’s anatomic characteristics. To understand and describe surgical techniques better, rhinoplasty surgeons have been using pictorial records instead of text descriptions. However, because paper records are commonly filed or scanned to a personal computer and uploaded to an ...

Importance  This study clarifies the pedicle geometry and vascular supply of a midline forehead flap for nasal reconstruction. It reports on the vascular reliability of this flap and its ability to reduce hair transposition to the nose, a major complicating factor of previous forehead flap designs.

Importance  Facial nerve injury leads to severe functional and aesthetic deficits. The transgenic Thy1-GFP rat is a new model for facial nerve injury and reconstruction research that will help improve clinical outcomes through translational facial nerve injury research.

Objective  To determine whether serial in vivo imaging ...

Original Investigation 
Eugene A. Chu, MD; Michael Li, MD; Frances B. Lazarow, MD; Brian J. F. Wong, MD, PhD

Importance  Blepharoplasty is one of the most commonly performed facial aesthetic surgeries. While myriad techniques exist to improve the appearance of the lower eyelids, there is no clear consensus on the optimal management of the orbital septum.

Objectives  To evaluate the safety and feasibility of the ...

Importance  Facial paralysis can contribute to disfigurement, psychological difficulties, and an inability to convey emotion via facial expression. In patients unable to perform a meaningful smile, free gracilis muscle transfer (FGMT) can often restore smile function. However, little is known about the impact on disease-specific quality of ...

Importance  To our knowledge, orthodromic temporalis tendon transfer (OTTT) for dynamic facial reanimation has not been described for use in children.

Observations  Three pediatric patients with permanent facial paralysis underwent OTTT using our modified technique between August 30, 2010, and January 23, 2012. Outcomes were assessed ...

Case Report/Case Series 
Holger G. Gassner, MD; Payam Maneschi, MD; Frank Haubner, MD

Importance  The stairstep graft is a novel method to modify the lateral anchoring point of lateral grafts for nasal valve correction.

Observations  Eight consecutive patients with a diagnosis of nasal valve collapse were included in the study. The novel method of stairstep grafts was performed to ...

Original Investigation 
Masoud Saman, MD; Sameep Kadakia, MD; Yadranko Ducic, MD

Importance  Patients are placed in maxillomandibular fixation (MMF) to restore premorbid occlusion prior to open reduction–internal fixation (ORIF) of mandibular fractures. Maintaining MMF for these patients for several weeks postoperatively is a widely accepted dictum.

Objective  We compare postoperative ORIF outcomes in dentate patients with noncomminuted ...

Anh Q. Truong, MD; Daniel C. O'Brien, BS; E. Bradley Strong, MD; Arthur Dublin, MD

Importance  Classically, pterygoid plate fractures have been associated with fractures of the mid-face and skull base. When isolated pterygoid plate fractures are identified on imaging that only extends to the level of the skull base, other related facial fractures may be missed. We sought to evaluate isolated ...

Original Investigation 
Shaun Mehta, BMSc; Andres Gantous, MD, FRCS(C)

Importance  This study evaluates the postoperative outcomes achieved with incisionless otoplasty for the correction of prominauris.

Objective  To determine whether incisionless otoplasty is a reliable and replicable technique in correcting prominauris.

Design, Setting, and Participants  This study consisted of a retrospective electronic medical record review ...

Importance  Androgenetic alopecia is a highly prevalent condition that can profoundly impair the quality of life in both men and women.

Objective  To provide the up-to-date medical and surgical treatment options for patients with androgenetic alopecia.

Evidence Review  A Medline search of scientific literature was ...

Importance  Many techniques to increase nasal tip projection and rotation have been described. Some patients complain about aesthetic loss during the postoperative period. The lateral crural steal technique has been used to improve nasal tip rotation, definition, and projection.

Objective  To evaluate the lateral crural steal ...

Importance  This study describes a reliable technique for mucosal reconstruction of large defects using components of a common free flap technique.

Objective  To review the harvest technique and the varied scenarios in which the anterolateral thigh adipofascial flap (ALTAF) can be used for mucosal restoration in ...

Importance  Acquired soft-tissue injury with resultant volume loss may cause significant deformity in size, shape, and body or facial contour. Current autologous fat transfer techniques have several limitations, including availability, donor site morbidity, and unpredictable rates of resorption. We present an extracellular matrix (ECM) biomaterial derived from ...
