    A mammometric comparison of modified Robertson versus Wise pattern inferior pedicle reduction mammoplasty

    Victor Z. Zhu , Ajul Shah , Rachel Lentz , Tracy Sturrock , Alexander F. Au , Stephanie L. Kwei
    Aim: The advent of 3D photoimaging and mammometrics has allowed for quantitative, volumetric breast analyses. This study uses 3D photoimaging and mammometrics to compare the postoperative morphometric outcomes of the modified Robertson technique to the more traditional Wise pattern inferior pedicle technique. Methods: Inferior pedicle reduction mammoplasty was performed using either a Wise pattern or modified Robertson skin incision. 3D photography and analysis were done at 1-3 months and 6-12 months postoperatively. Results: There were 14 breasts in the modified Robertson group (ROB) and...

    Medially based de-epithelialized flap for nasal base narrowing and nostril sill augmentation in a cleft lip nasal deformity

    Kun Hwang , Jong Hwan Choi , Hun Kim , Dae Joong Kim
    Aim: The authors observed the nostril floor in a gross cadaver specimen histologically and innovated a medially based de-epithelialized flap for nasal base narrowing and nostril sill augmentation. Methods: In cadaver, fully thick section was taken from the nostril sill at the midpoint of the columella base and ala base, and stained with Masson-Trichrome. In eight patients, circumferential incision along the nostril sill and alar base freed the alar base from the upper lip. At the columellar base, fresh epithelium was shaved on the medial side of the incision line. The widened scar on the...

    Photometric analysis of absorbable barbed suture for periareolar closure in mastopexy

    Allen D. Rosen , Alanna M. Guzman , Teresa Hartman
    Aim: The primary author previously described his technique for periareolar closure in mastopexy using a pinwheel interlocking purse string with absorbable barbed suture and now reports the results of a retrospective photometric analysis comparing this technique with the same closure using Gortex® suture. This study is designed to compare the degree of areolar widening and safety profile of using absorbable barbed sutures for periareolar closure versus permanent smooth suture. Methods: A retrospective chart review was conducted of all patients whose periareolar closures were performed using...

    Soft tissue reconstruction after lower extremity limb-sparing pediatric sarcoma resection

    Kevin Shultz , Nicholas Webster , Miguel A. Soto-Miranda , Anas Eid , Jon P. Ver Halen
    Aim: Limb salvage is the treatment of choice for lower extremity bone sarcomas in children. To date, peers have not described algorithms for soft tissue reconstruction of these defects. This paper is to report a large single center series of lower extremity salvage after sarcoma treatment, with algorithm. Methods: The authors performed a retrospective review of patients undergoing resection of lower extremity bone sarcomas at a single center over 12 years. Results: In total, 65 children (29 girls, 36 boys) with a mean age of 13 years (range 2.9-23.3 years) underwent resection of a lower leg...

    Non-odontogenic hard palate cysts with special reference to globulomaxillary cyst

    Bharat Bhushan Sharma , Shweta Sharma , Arvind Jha , Kamal Deep Sharma , Jai Deep Sharma , Chattur Bhuj Sharma
    Palatal cysts are always confusing by defining their exact nomenclature or conclusive diagnosis. One of these presentations is globulomaxillary cyst which requires to be categorized under appropriate head for the management point of view. Though this entity appears to be of odontogenic in origin but because of its anatomical relation and histo-pathological background this is placed in non odontogenic group. Though the mechanism of its formation remains the same but this cyst cannot be mixed up with nasopalatine cyst as per their location. Globulomaxillary cyst appears as inverted pear...

    Total nasal septal reconstruction using costal cartilage in difficult cases of secondary septoplasty

    Kapil S. Agrawal , Raghav Shrotriya
    Rhinoplasty and septal reconstruction often require the use of cartilage grafts. Complete nasal septal reconstruction may be required in very specific situations like difficult secondary septoplasty or severely deformed post traumatic noses. Usually in these cases the septal cartilage or bone is insufficient for septal reconstruction. The authors hereby describe a new technique of complete septal reconstruction by using the 7th rib (costal) cartilage combined with author’s ingenious technique to prevent warping.
