BACKGROUND: Palatomaxillary defects were historically restored with a prosthetic obturator; however, advances in local and free tissue transfer has provided a viable alternative for appropriately selected patients with palatomaxillary defects. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of patients who underwent palatomaxillary reconstruction by the lead author between 1998 and 2016 was conducted. Patients who were restored with a palatal obturator were excluded. RESULTS: One hundred forty patients were reconstructed with a total of 159 local, regional, and free flaps with a 96...

This article presents an overview of intramuscular gluteal augmentation involving primary and secondary augmentation with implants. Although gluteal augmentation is a well-studied procedure, few reports have described the intramuscular technique or this technique in association with lipofilling. This article presents experience with a combined technique; this recent innovation combines placement of an anatomic silicone gel implant underneath the gluteus maximus and immediate fat grafting. Primary and secondary gluteal augmentations using implants resulted in satisfactory outcomes...

Gluteal augmentation is rapidly gaining in popularity and this is driving aesthetic surgeons to gain experience and develop techniques to meet patient expectations. Currently, the 2 main techniques - gluteal fat grafting and gluteal implant for augmentation have significant limitations. Autologous fat grafting seems to have a mortality rate significantly higher than other aesthetic procedures. Implant based gluteal augmentation is equally difficult. This is a broad review of all the complications associated with both types and autologous gluteal augmentation...

BACKGROUND: The repair of extensive upper limb skin lesions in pediatric patients is extremely challenging due to substantial limitations of flap size and donor-site morbidity. We aimed to create an oversize preexpanded flap based on intercostal artery perforators for large-scale resurfacing of the upper extremity in children. METHOD: Between March 2013 and August 2016, 11 patients underwent reconstructive treatment for extensive skin lesions in the upper extremity using a preexpanded intercostal artery perforator flap...

Background: Even when clubfoot deformity is treated in a timely manner, the consequences observed in adulthood include hypoplasia of the calf muscles, gait impairment, decreases in foot size and can also affect the tibial length. These consequences may have negative impacts on the patient's subjective appraisal of long-term outcomes, and can influence the patient's self-esteem in both male and female patients. Objectives: We present our experience in the treatment of undeveloped calves after surgical treatment of congenital clubfoot...

Cosmetic procedures are common and utilize many techniques to obtain aesthetically good outcomes for patient satisfaction with acceptable safety standards. Cosmetic procedures that involve the gluteal region are becoming increasingly popular as various procedures can target the gluteal region such as liposuction, tumescent liposuction, cosmetic filler injections, autologous fat transfer, depot drug delivery, and implants. Complications of cosmetic gluteal procedures can be localized or systemic with systemic complications being responsible for most deaths...

Background: Acellular dermal matrix was introduced in breast reconstruction in 2001 and is gradually becoming a standard component for immediate breast reconstruction and nipple-sparing mastectomy. The reconstructive technique allows for improved aesthetic outcomes. However, there seems to be uncertainty regarding complication rates. The aim of this review was to systematically evaluate complication rates related to this method. Methods: This systematic review was conducted according to the recommendations outlined in the Cochrane Handbook for reviews and reported in line with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses statement...

Current trends in bilateral cochlear implantation (CI) favor a minimally invasive subperiosteal pocket technique. Symmetric receiver-stimulator (R/S) placement is an important goal for bilateral CI, especially with regard to patient satisfaction. In this article, we describe a method easily adopted to achieve optimal symmetry. Upon reviewing the Senior Author's 11 bilateral CI cases using the direct subperiosteal pocket technique with the proposed "mirror template," we found improved symmetry, which translated into high patient and family satisfaction regarding the aesthetics of the symmetric R/S placement...
