#1
J M Foletti, P Scolozzi
Titanium mesh implants have proved their effectiveness in the reconstruction of fractures of the orbital wall, and their compromise between stiffness and elasticity allows for optimal support of the orbital contents. However, after recurrent orbital trauma, these implants (even when properly positioned) can become a potential "penetrating object" that threatens the critical adjacent anatomical structures. We report the case of a patient with recurrent facial trauma whose orbit had previously been reconstructed with a titanium implant, and which resulted in severe deformation...

PURPOSE: The widely used external approach (Weber-Fergusson incision) for the removal of maxillary ethmoid tumors leaves stigmatizing scars and deformities on the patient's face. As an alternative technique, the scarless facial degloving approach was first described in the 1970s; since then, several modifications have been developed. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The authors have been using a modified facial degloving technique for 7 years to remove maxillary ethmoid tumors...

PURPOSE: Maxillofacial deformities are always psychologically and physically distressing to the patients and is also challenging to the treating surgeons. The term Micrognathia means a "small jaw". True micrognathia, where the maxilla or the mandibular skeleton does not grow to the full size can be congenital or acquired. Distraction osteogenesis also called as callus distraction or callostasis or osteodistraction or distraction histogenesis is a biological process of regenerating newly formed bone and adjacent soft tissue by a gradual and controlled traction of surgically separated bone segments...

Among all different types of cutaneous scleroderma, Parry Romberg syndrome and linear scleroderma “en coup de sabre” typically involve the visage. Gradual degeneration of the tissues, from the skin up to the bone, is the stigmata of the diseases and the range of clinical manifestations is wide. They typically start during childhood and slowly progress before stabilizing. Considering the gravity of the associated deformity and its impact on facial function and appearance, we strongly advocate a prompt intervention that however must be tailored on paediatric patients...

Introduction  The temporalis myofascial (TM) is an important reconstructive flap in palate reconstruction. Past studies have shown the temporalis myofascial flap to be safe as well as effective. Free flap reconstruction of palate defects is also a popular method used by contemporary surgeons. We aim to reaffirm the temporalis myofascial flap as a viable alternative to free flaps for palate reconstruction. Objective  We report our results using the temporalis flap for palate reconstruction in one of the largest case series reported...

Individuals with debilitating facial injuries and deformities have achieved significant improvement of aesthetic form and function after undergoing a face transplantation. The involvement of surgical technologists and perioperative nurses in the care of the recipient and donor plays a critical role in the success of these procedures. There are unique challenges that staff members may be presented with when caring for a donor and recipient undergoing a face transplantation, including less comfort with and knowledge of the surgical procedure and instrumentation, an increased amount of equipment and personnel in the OR, donor and recipient admission and discharge care, and increased shift length...

Facial scar and deformation caused by burn injury severely affect physical and psychological well-being of pediatric burn patients, which needs medical workers and pediatric burn patients' family members to pay much attention to and to perform early rehabilitation treatment. Pressure therapy is an important rehabilitative strategy for pediatric burn patients with facial scar, mainly including wearing headgears and transparent pressure facemasks, which have their own features. To achieve better treatment results, pressure therapy should be chosen according to specific condition of pediatric burn patients and combined with other assistant therapies...

BACKGROUND: Neocentromeres are rare and considered chromosomal aberrations, because a non-centromeric region evolves in an active centromere by mutation. The literature reported several structural anomalies of X chromosome and they influence the female reproductive capacity or are associated to Turner syndrome in the presence of monosomy X cell line. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of chromosome X complex rearrangement found in a prenatal diagnosis. The fetal karyotype showed a mosaicism with a 45,X cell line and a 46 chromosomes second line with a big marker, instead of a sex chromosome...

Visualization and tracking of the facial whiskers is required in an increasing number of rodent studies. Although many approaches have been employed, only high-speed videography has proven adequate for measuring whisker motion and deformation during interaction with an object. However, whisker visualization and tracking is challenging for multiple reasons, primary among them the low contrast of the whisker against its background. Here, we demonstrate a fluorescent dye method suitable for visualization of one or more rat whiskers...
