Patients with cleft lip and/or palate (CLP), who undergo numerous medical interventions from infancy, can suffer from lifelong debilitation caused by underdeveloped maxillae. Conventional treatment approaches use maxillary expansion techniques to develop normal speech, achieve functional occlusion for nutrition intake, and improve esthetics. However, as patients with CLP congenitally lack bone in the cleft site with diminished capacity for bone formation in the expanded palate, more than 80% of the patient population experiences significant postexpansion relapse...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Esthetic wires are commonly used in orthodontic treatments. Surface roughness is an important factor in the friction and bacterial adhesion in these wires. Surface roughness of esthetic wires has not been assessed, except in a few recent (mostly qualitative esthetics) studies. The aim of this study was to quantitatively compare the surface roughness of 4 coated esthetic wires with that of a conventional orthodontic wire. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this in vitro trial, 25 coated and uncoated orthodontic archwires were studied, including: NiTi Memory wire (American Orthodontics, USA) as a control group; Orthocosmetic Elastinol (Ortho Organizers, USA); Perfect (Hubit, Korea); Imagination (Gestenco, Sweden); EverWhite (American Orthodontics, USA)...

Fournier's gangrene is a rapidly progressing necrotizing fasciitis restricted to the perineal and genital regions. Although rare, it is an acute life-threatening disease, requiring rapid radical surgical debridement and antibiotic treatment, resulting in large soft tissue defects. Various reconstructive methods for defect coverage are applied to satisfactorily reconstitute functionality and esthetics.

S Mühlstädt, P Anheuser, N Mohammed, A D Bach
The adult buried penis afflicts the patient with shame and is also potentially associated with considerable urogenital complications. Due to obesity, chronic urogenital lymphedema or subsequent inflammatory urogenital conditions, such as a lichen sclerosus et atrophicus, the clinical appearance of the adult buried penis is extremely variable. Epidemiological data are non-existent. Therapeutically, a combination of various plastic surgery procedures is often necessary for the best esthetic and functional results...

REVIEW
Alvaro E Acosta, Catalina Santa Vélez
Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a slow growing tumor with a very low metastatic potential but with significant subclinical extension and great capacity for local destruction. Thus, the first surgeon approached with such challenging tumor must attempt to cure the patient with a method that spares healthy tissue and ensures an optimal oncological, functional, and esthetic result. The treatment of DFSP often requires a multidisciplinary approach. Depending on location, dermatologic surgeons, surgical oncologists, head and neck surgeons, neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons, and occasionally medical oncologists may be involved with the management...

INTRODUCTION: Composite injuries of the volar surfaces of fingers are frequently associated with digital vessel and nerve damage. Flow-through glabrous flaps can provide esthetic tissue coverage as well as revascularization, and using a neurovascular flap, allows primary reconstruction of the digital nerve. METHODS: Between June 2010 and August 2014, we prospectively studied the use of Microsurgical flow-through glabrous flaps to achieve simultaneously digital revascularization and soft tissue coverage in 13 fingers of 12 patients who experienced volar injuries, comprising 6 great toe fibular flaps, 3 medial plantar flaps, 1 pedis medialis flap, and 3 hypothenar flaps...

OBJECTIVE: Facial keloids commonly occur in young patients. Multiple keloid masses often converge into a large lesion on the face, representing a significant obstacle to keloid mass excision and reconstruction. We describe a new surgical method that excises the keloid mass and resurfaces the wound by saving the keloid skin as a skin flap during facial keloid treatment. METHODS: Forty-five patients with facial keloids were treated in our department between January 2013 and January 2016...

OBJECTIVE: Yttrium-stabilized zirconia is susceptible to low temperature degradation after interaction with water. Various mechanisms by which water molecules destabilize the tetragonal phase have been proposed, while the concept of yttrium depletion by the incorporation of hydroxyl ions in the crystalline structure either through the formation of YOH/ZrOH bonds or small α-Y(OH)3 crystallites, is prevailing. The present study was performed to investigate the surface alterations on a 3Y-TZP dental ceramic during the process of in-vitro aging and to further explore the yttrium depletion mechanism that occurs upon interaction with water...
