The use of titanium clips in septal surgery for correction and strengtheningPermanent correction of septal deformities is one of the most difficult and controversial subjects in aesthetic nasal surgery. The main reasons for failure in most of the corrective procedures are either not to weaken the septal cartilage enough to straighten it, or to treat the septum too radically causing iatrogenic..
Recent advances in reconstructive oral and maxillofacial surgeryReconstruction within the head and neck is challenging. Defects can be anatomically complex and may already be compromised by scarring, inflammation, and infection. Tissue grafts and vascularised flaps (either pedicled or free) bring healthy tissue to a compromised wound for optimal healing and are the current gold..

The reading man flap for closure of large meningomyelocele defectsBackground: Closure of the skin defect in myelomeningocele repair is an essential step that determines the quality of the surgical result. In large myelomeningoceles, however, adequate skin coverage may not be accomplished by direct closure or skin undermining. In such cases, the skin defect is best repaired using..
Comparison of sensory recovery at the subfascial and suprafascial donor sites of the free radial flap
Comparison of sensory recovery at the subfascial and suprafascial donor sites of the free radial flapThe radial flap may be raised using a subfascial or suprafascial approach. The latter donor site is associated with fewer healing complications. We retrospectively evaluated the quality of sensory recovery within two comparable groups of 30 patients with subfascial and suprafascial donor sites. When considering the two..
