PURPOSE: Allogeneic cartilage grafting has multiple uses in rhinoplasty. Autogenous cartilage is frequently used in cases of nasal obstruction or reconstruction, but harvesting grafts can cause complications or might be contraindicated. Rhinoplasties of the patient with cleft might require costochondral grafts. Allogeneic rib is an effective and safe alternative to autogenous grafts, prevents complications, and obviates postoperative admission after rib harvest. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients who had allogeneic cartilage placed during functional or reconstructive rhinoplasty were studied from 2 institutions, including 19 who had functional rhinoplasty using allogeneic Cartiform patellar cartilage grafts and 15 patients who underwent reconstructive cleft rhinoplasty with allogeneic rib cartilage...

Cardiac arrhythmias often are transient and might not be detected using conventional electrocardiographic (ECG) techniques. The adhesive patch monitor (APM) is a single-lead, lightweight, up to 14-day continuous ambulatory ECG monitor. This study aimed to prospectively assess its usability in four boxer dogs considered either to be healthy or to have arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. Optimal recording was obtained by placing the APM on the left side of the animal's thorax, at the fifth intercostal space, slightly dorsal to the costochondral junction, and oriented either vertically or parallel to the long axis of the heart...

REVIEW
K Mitsimponas, S Mehmet, R Kennedy, K Shakib
Idiopathic condylar resorption is a well-documented but poorly-understood pathological entity that predominantly affects young women, particularly during the pubertal growth spurt. Several theories have been proposed to explain its aetiopathogenesis, the most favoured of which are the hormonally mediated theory, the theory of avascular necrosis, and the dysfunctional remodelling theory. The condition is diagnosed by a combination of clinical and radiological data as well as elements from the patient's history...

Craig P Hensley, Alicia J Emerson
Background and Purpose: Chest pain, a frequent complaint for seeking medical care, is often attributed to musculoskeletal pathology. Costochondritis is a common disorder presenting as chest pain. Initial physical therapist examination emphasizes red flag screening. Reexamination throughout the episode of care is critical, particularly when patients are not progressing and/or in the presence of complex pain presentations. The purpose of this case report is to describe the clinical reasoning process in the management of a patient referred to physical therapy with a medical diagnosis of costochondritis...

Orbital hypertelorism is a common congenital craniofacial anomaly in Asians. As Tessier pointed out, the correction of hypertelorism is effectively the correction of the nasal deformity, which is characterized by a broad, flat nose accompanying an increased interorbital distance and a lack of nasal projection. OBJECTIVES: To measure the changes in the orbital and nasal parameters after Tessier box osteotomy and primary aesthetic rhinoplasty, performed concurrently with otogenous costochondral graft...

Tietze syndrome is a rare and benign cause of chest pain that may be confused with life-threatening conditions. Characteristic findings are painful, localized inflammation of the costosternal, sternoclavicular, or costochondral joints typically of the second and third ribs. We present a patient with severe, medically refractory symptoms consistent with Tietze syndrome. Although surgical management is not the typical treatment course, symptomatic control was eventually achieved with complete resection of the involved cartilage and adjacent rib...

REVIEW
Cory M Resnick
Indications and considerations for reconstruction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) differ between growing and skeletally mature patients. Osteoarthritis, which is the most common cause of TMJ destruction in adults, is comparatively rare in children. The most common indications in young patients are congenital deformities, pathology, ankylosis and progressive resorptive processes. Options for reconstruction include distraction osteogenesis, autologous reconstruction (ie, costochondral graft, free fibula flap), and total alloplastic joint replacement...

Simulating natural characteristics and aesthetics in reconstructed ears has provided a complex 3-dimensional puzzle for those treating patients with microtia. Costochondral grafts remain the gold standard for autologous reconstruction. However, other options such as Medpor and prosthetics are indicated depending on patient circumstances and personal choice. Research into tissue engineering offers an alternative method to a traditional surgical approach that may reduce donor-site morbidity. However, tissue engineering for microtia reconstruction brings new challenges such as cell sourcing, promotion of chondrogenesis, scaffold vascularization, and prevention of scaffold contraction...

Nager syndrome, also known as Nager acrofacial dysostosis, was first described by Nager and de Reynier in 1948. The patients commonly present with micrognathia, and a preventive tracheostomy is necessary when there are symptoms of upper airway obstruction. Mandibular distraction osteogenesis is considered as an effective procedure, which not only improves micrognathia but also minimizes the chances of tracheostomy. However, mandibular distraction osteogenesis has some complications such as relapse, teeth injury, infection, and injury of the temporomandibular joints (TMJs)...

BACKGROUND: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis is a situation in which the mandibular condyle is fused to the glenoid fossa by bone or fibrous tissue. The management of TMJ ankylosis has a complicated chore, and it is challenging for the maxillofacial surgeon because of technical hitches and high rate of reankylosis. Costochondral graft (CCG) is a common treatment modality for TMJ ankylosis. One of disadvantages of CCG is unpredictability of growth pattern and risk of overgrowth...
