Underdiagnosis of Nasoorbitoethmoid Fractures in Patients with Zygoma Injury
Background: Nasoorbitoethmoid fractures commonly accompany midface fractures and may be underdiagnosed, resulting in incomplete reconstruction or inadequate treatment following facial trauma. To better understand the nasoorbitoethmoid fracture diagnosis and treatment tendencies, the authors analyzed concomitant nasoorbitoethmoid injuries in the setting of zygoma fractures. Methods: The facial trauma database at a level I trauma center was evaluated. All patients with diagnosed zygoma fractures...

Risk of Intracranial Extension of Craniofacial Dermoid Cysts
Background: Dermoid cysts are benign lesions lined by keratinizing squamous epithelium that also contain epidermal adnexa (hair follicles, hair shafts, sebaceous glands, and both apocrine and eccrine sweat glands) and mesodermal derivatives (smooth muscle fibers, vascular stroma, nerves, and collagen fibers). Craniofacial dermoid cysts represent approximately 7 percent of all dermoids and have an incidence ranging between 0.03 and 0.14 percent. Methods: The authors conducted a single-center,...

Pediatric Frontal Bone and Sinus Fractures: Cause, Characteristics, and a Treatment Algorithm
Background: The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence, cause, characteristics, presentation, and management of pediatric frontal bone fractures. Methods: A retrospective cohort review was performed on all patients younger than 15 years with frontal fractures that presented to a single institution from 1998 to 2010. Charts and computed tomographic images were reviewed, and frontal bone fractures were classified into three types based on anatomical fracture characteristics. Fracture...

Cranial Fossa Volume and Morphology Development in Apert Syndrome
Background: Apert syndrome causes normal or enlarged intracranial volume overall as patients grow. This study aimed to trace the segmental anterior, middle, and posterior cranial fossae volume and structural morphology in these patients, to help discern a more focused and individualized surgical treatment plan for patients with Apert syndrome. Methods: This study included 82 preoperative computed tomographic scans (Apert, n = 32; control, n = 50) divided into five age-related subgroups. The...

Long-Term Follow-Up on Bone Stability and Complication Rate after Monobloc Advancement in Syndromic Craniosynostosis
Background: Monobloc advancement is a complex procedure used to treat patients with syndromic craniosynostosis. Studies directly addressing the long-term stability of monobloc advancement with distraction osteogenesis are underreported in the literature. The objectives of this study were to assess 5-year midface bone stability following monobloc advancement performed on patients with syndromic craniosynostosis, identify risk factors for relapse, and present strategies for prevention and management...

The Impacts of Orthognathic Surgery on the Facial Appearance and Age Perception of Patients Presenting Skeletal Class III Deformity: An Outcome Study Using the FACE-Q Report and Surgical Professional–Based Panel Assessment
Background: A recent artificial intelligence–based investigation has shown the impacts of orthognathic surgery on the patient’s facial appearance and apparent age. However, appearance and age perception as reported by patients and surgical professionals have not been addressed in the same cohort to date. Methods: FACE-Q facial appraisal (appearance and age) and quality-of-life scale scores obtained before and after orthognathic surgery, in addition to three-dimensional photographs of 70 patients...

The Utility of Early Tongue Reduction Surgery for Macroglossia in Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome
Background: Macroglossia, a cardinal feature of the (epi)genetic disorder Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, is associated with obstructive sleep apnea, speech and/or feeding difficulties, and dental or jaw malalignment. These sequelae may be treated and/or prevented with tongue reduction surgery; the authors sought to determine whether certain Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome patients may benefit from early surgical intervention before age 12 months. Methods: The authors conducted a retrospective review...

Pioneers in Modern Craniofacial Surgery: Assessing the Academic Impact of Drs. Joseph Gruss and Paul Manson
Background: The authors conducted this study to assess the impact that Drs. Joseph Gruss and Paul Manson have had on craniofacial surgery through their individual contributions and through their trainees. Methods: This was a retrospective analysis of fellows trained by either Dr. Gruss or Dr. Manson. Demographic and bibliometric measures were recorded for each fellow. Demographic factors included years since completion of fellowship training, current practice of craniomaxillofacial surgery,...

Neurotized Free Platysma Flap for Functional Eyelid Reconstruction: A Cadaveric Study of Anatomical Feasibility
Background: Conventional reconstructive options for large full-thickness eyelid defects are limited to static local flaps without replacing the missing orbicularis. The authors’ aim is to delineate the platysma neurovascular anatomy for innervated functional eyelid reconstruction. Methods: Fourteen fresh latex-injected heminecks were dissected. The locations where neurovascular structures entered the platysma muscles were expressed as the percentage distance ± SD from the sternocleidomastoid...

Facial Gender Confirmation Surgery: A Protocol for Diagnosis, Surgical Planning, and Postoperative Management
Summary: During the past 10 years, academic publications that address facial feminization surgery have largely examined the technical aspects of the different surgical procedures involved and clinical evaluations of postoperative results. This Special Topic article focuses on aspects that are underdeveloped to date but useful with regard to taking the correct therapeutic approach to transgender patients who are candidates for facial gender confirmation surgery. The authors propose a protocolized...

Synthesis of Ligand Functionalized ErbB-3 Targeted Novel DNA Nano-Threads Loaded with the Low Dose of Doxorubicin for Efficient In Vitro Evaluation of the Resistant Anti-Cancer Activity
Abstract Purpose Doxorubicin (Dox) being a hydrophobic drug needs a unique carrier for the effective encapsulation with uniformity in the aqueous dispersion, cell culture media and the biological-fluids that may efficiently target its release at the tumor site. Methods Circular DNA-nanotechnology was employed to synthesize DNA Nano-threads (DNA-NTs)...

Comparison of the Levels of Rubber Stopper-Related Organic Leachables in Commercially Available Vialed Liquid and Lyophilized Drug Products
Abstract Purpose Rubber stoppers that seal the primary packaging systems of parenteral pharmaceutical products have the potential to introduce impurities into the drug during storage. While this interaction has been well characterized for products stored as an aqueous liquid, it is not well understood how the interaction is affected when the product is stored as a lyophilized solid. Accordingly, the goal of this study was to determine...

Retinal Image Slip Must Pass the Threshold for Human Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex Adaptation
Abstract We sought to determine whether repeated vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) adaptation training to increase the VOR gain (eye/head velocity) had a lasting effect in normal subjects and whether there was a retinal image slip tolerance threshold for VOR adaptation. We used the unilateral incremental VOR adaptation technique and horizontal active (self-generated, predictable) head impulses as the vestibular stimulus. Both active and passive (imposed, unpredictable) head impulse...
