lore fascia

Giuseppe Colombo, Vittorio Ruvolo, Valentina Pagliarulo
AIM: Facial aging is the union of multiple effects such as exposure to the sun, ambiental stress, smog, tobacco. It reflects the dynamic, cumulative effects of time on the skin, soft tissues, and deep structural components of the face showing skin textural changes and loss of facial volume. There are a multitude of techniques currently used to perform face lifts, but the unique objective is to achieve a good and safe result. METHODS: This paper describes a new safe approach to midfacial rejuvenation that combines the elements of superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) plication, about four vectors, with a blepharoplasty to achieve long-lasting improvement of the aging midface and a more natural effect...

BACKGROUND: A 270-degree partially tubed pectoralis major myocutaneous flap (PMMF) is an excellent option for total circumferential pharyngoesophageal defects in patients who are not candidates for more complex reconstructions. METHODS: Patients undergoing circumferential pharyngoesophageal reconstruction with partially tubed PMMF were reviewed. End points were stricture, fistula, resumption of oral intake, perioperative death, and recurrence. RESULTS: Eleven patients underwent 270-degree PMMF for reconstruction: 6 (55%) were men and 5 (45%) were women (mean, 62 years; range, 42-78 years)...

BACKGROUND: Lore's fascia and the platysma-auricular ligament are discreet fascial structures anterior and inferior to the auricle respectively. The nomenclature and descriptions of these structures have been presented inconsistently in the literature. There is also concern that placement of platysma suspension sutures into these structures may risk damage to the underlying facial nerve trunk. The aim of this study was to clarify the anatomy of Lore's fascia and the platysma-auricular ligament, and their relationship to the facial nerve trunk...

Over a 5-year period, my technique of approaching and modifying the aging neck has changed from direct suturing of the medial platysma bands and strong posterior traction of the platysma to superior elevation of the posterior platysma and strong fixation to the tympanoparotid fascia. When indicated, redundant anterior platysmal bands are resected instead of approximated. Evaluation of these anterior bands preoperatively for thickness and degree of descent allows more precise decision-making regarding the need to resect redundant and excessively thick or long anterior platysmal bands...

BACKGROUND: Experience with anatomical dissection has suggested that two potential complications of rhytidectomy are related to the anatomy of the periauricular adipose compartments: great auricular nerve injury and the "subauricular band" phenomenon. This study describes this anatomy and its relationship to these potential complications. METHODS: The results of 24 fresh hemifacial cadaver dissections were included in this study. Injections included the use of methylene blue and fixable dye injected into specific regions around the ear...

BACKGROUND: Although the "open abdomen" has likely contributed to improved outcomes in trauma patients, the challenge of subsequent fascial closure has emerged. Since mid 2004, we have incorporated Wittmann Patch staged abdominal closure into our management of the open abdomen. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of this device on our incidence of fascial closure versus planned ventral hernia. METHODS: Patients managed by open abdomen from 2001 through 2006 were identified from the trauma registry...

Anatomically, the platysma muscle is composed of two parts: a facial part and a cervical part. This observation allows a better understanding of the modifications due to aging. The correction of platysma bands needs nearly vertical directional vectors at the facial level. The periosteum of the malar bone and the anterior border of the parotid fascia are two solid structures that are not modified during aging. They allow the anchoring of the ptotic tissues including premalar fat pads, jowls, and platysma bands...

BACKGROUND: The authors developed a technique for the treatment of the cervical area during face lifts. The authors called this technique platysma suspension and platysmaplasty rather than plication. METHODS: After an anatomical study on 10 corpses on which the authors tested the various platysma suspension techniques, they carried out platysma suspension associated with platysmaplasty in 30 patients. RESULTS: This technique consists of suspending the free edge of the platysma muscle and fixing it to a resistant tissue close to the earlobe (Loré's fascia or tympanoparotid fascia)...
