Abstract Purpose The aim of the study was to compare local and distant flaps for facial reconstruction after resection of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. Patients and Method Fifty patients with facial CSCC and subsequent facial reconstruction were retrospectively analysed. All complications such as wound infection, wound dehiscence, flap necrosis, partial or total flap loss were recorded. The aesthetic outcome was evaluated using colour prints of patients’ photographs of different flaps in te...
Abstract Objectives Operative management of squamous cell carcinoma of the maxillary alveolus and hard palate (MHSCC) is still a controversial issue, especially for cN0 cases. We report the survival outcomes in patients with MHSCC, including the rate of cervical occult metastasis for UICC stages I/II and survival after elective neck dissection (END). Methods 77 patients with primary MHSCC were followed-up from 2 months to 14.6 years within a prospectively obtained patient cohort. Factors influen...
Abstract Objective Evaluating Kinesio Taping (KT) use to reduce pain and edema in individuals subjected to surgical extraction of impacted mandibular third molars. Materials and Methods Thirteen individuals (5 men and 8 women, mean age: 23.25 years) were subjected to mutual extraction of two mandibular third molars based on the same surgical protocol and pharmacological approach. All individuals were subjected to kinesio taping application on one side of patients’ face (test group - KT), in the ...
Summary In spite of the many imaging modalities used in clinics, the one that best reflects the true delineation of skull-base (infratemporal fossa, ITF) malignancies is still unknown. In order to compare the tumor recognition capabilities of different imaging modalities, established murine models and patients with skull-base tumors were evaluated by computer tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (18FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) for deline...
Abstract Objective This study aimed to compare the complications at the donor site of supra-versus subfascially harvested anterolateral thigh perforator free flaps. Method We searched PubMed, Web of Science, EMBASE, the Chinese BioMedical Literature Database (CBM) and the Cochrane Library until December 31, 2018, to identify studies that compared complications at the donor site of the supra-versus subfascially raised anterolateral thigh perforator free flaps. Two authors individually extracted t...
Summary Purpose A relationship between positional cranial deformation and facial asymmetry has been suggested; however, details regarding this relationship remain to be clarified. This study aimed to elucidate the relationship between facial asymmetry and positional plagiocephaly using three-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT). Methods One-hundred-and-twenty-nine patients were included, and cranial vault asymmetry index (CVAI) and cephalic index (CI) were used as indicators of positional cra...
Abstract Correction of cleft lip-nose deformity in adult patients is different from that in children. One-stage correction has proved to be a suitable technique for patients with cleft-lip nose deformity. This study aimed to explore a particular single-stage method and evaluate the effect of simultaneous reparation of secondary unilateral cleft lip-nose deformities. Cleft lip patients who had previously undergone nasolabial surgery with residual poor nasal/lip appearance were included. The alveo...
Abstract Introduction The amount of fluids administered intraoperatively seems to influence the postoperative outcome, and especially the transfusion of red blood cell concentrates (RBC) are known to have an increased risk of postoperative complications. This prospective study focuses on patients planned with microvascular free flap reconstruction and investigates the effect of various types and amounts of volumes given intraoperatively and on the intensive care unit with regard to overall posto...
Abstract The aim of the study was to assess if there is a time difference (operative time, ischemia time, planning time and hospitalization) between computer-assisted surgery (CAS) and conventional planning in cranio-maxillofacial surgery. An electronic search was performed in June 2018. Studies comparing time difference between CAS and traditional planning were included. 28 publications were included, with 536 patients in the CAS group and 784 in the control group. 18 studies reported on mandib...
