    Nanotechnology applications in osteodistraction

    Adam E. Singleton , Jon P. Ver Halen
    Most current strategies for bone regeneration have relatively satisfactory results. However, there are drawbacks and limitations associated with their use and availability, and even controversial reports about their efficacy and cost-effectiveness. The induction of new bone formation through distraction osteogenesis (DO) is widespread clinical application in the treatment of bone defects, limb deformities, and fracture nonunions. However, a lengthy period of external fixation is usually needed to allow the new bone to consolidate, and complications such as refracture at the distraction gap...

    Auricular seroma: A new concept in management

    Monika Shamrao Malgonde , Manoj Kumar
    Aim: Auricular seroma is a cystic swelling with a collection of serous fluid between the perichondrium and cartilage. The successful treatment of auricular seromas remains a challenge because this disease has a high propensity for recurrence. Methods: A total of 20 patients with auricular seromas were treated by remodeling a corrugated rubber drain. Results: All patients tolerated the procedure well. No patient had any collection of fluid after the removal of the splint. No patient experienced pain, fever, or edema after treatment. The seroma disappeared without disfigurement. There were no...

    A modified bilobed flap design for nasal tip defects

    Zhi-Guo Wang , Xiu-Juan Chen , Zhen-Yu Chen
    Aim: The correction of nasal tip defects presents many challenges. Zitelli's bilobed flap has been widely used for such repairing defects, but may be complicated by interrupted scars on the nasal dorsum. Our study evaluates the design principles, results, and advantages of a modified bilobed flap for repairing nasal tip defects. Methods: The primary lobe was located between the defect and the cheek, and the second lobe was located in the cheek. The width of the primary lobe was equal to that of the primary defect. The length of the primary lobe was 10% longer than the distance of the distal...

    Comparison between four treatment modalities for active myofascial triggers point

    Atef Fouda
    Aim: The study aimed at the painful trigger points (TrPs) for the purpose of ablating muscle spasms and restoring normal muscle length to find the most effective treatment for alleviating pain and improving mouth range of motion in patients with myofascial pain dysfunction. Methods: We enrolled 72 patients with pain and reduced mouth opening due to temporomandibular joint dysfunction. Patients assigned to four groups and four treatment modalities used to treat myofascial TrPs pain. We used mean and standard deviation values. The Mann-Whitney U-test was used to compare the two groups. The...

    Internal derangement of temporomandibular joint: role of arthocentesis with steriod

    Altaf Hussain Malik
    Aim: The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of arthrocentesis with arthrocentesis plus steroid in the treatment of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) internal derangements. Methods: Nine males and 11 females aged 17-39 years were enrolled in the study. The patients were complaining of limited mouth opening and TMJ pain. Arthrocentesis was performed under aseptic conditions. All patients were clinically evaluated before the procedure, and 1 week and 6 months after the procedure. Intensity of TMJ pain and maximal mouth opening was recorded at each follow-up visit. Results: Both groups...

    Management of extensive intraparotid vascular malformation: a case report

    Katerina Anesti , Zachary Moaveni , Heng-Yi Wu
    Treatment of large soft tissue vascular lesions remains one of the greatest challenges in modern plastic surgery. The extent of the disease and the involved structures, but also the expectations of the patients are important in determining the way of treatment. The effective management of hemangiomas and vascular malformations of the head and neck requires a team approach, in order to understand the biologic behavior of the lesion, complete the diagnostic studies necessary to define the area of involvement, and understand the benefits and limitations of interventional radiologic and...

    Options for thumb revascularization: our experience and literature review

    Pradeoth Mukundan Korambayil , Prashanth Varkey Ambookan , Vinoth Kumar Dilliraj
    Traumatic injuries to the thumb resulting in segmental loss of a digital artery are not uncommon. To bridge the gap and repair a transacted digital artery, the superficial palmar arch or the radial digital artery of the index finger can be used to reconstruct the ulnar digital artery of thumb for revascularization. Revascularization following segmental loss resulting from a crushed ulnar digital artery of the thumb can be performed based on the superficial palmar arch or the radial digital artery of the index finger, avoiding anastomosis at two sites and hence providing better results. The...
