BACKGROUND Neurofibromatosis type 1 manifests itself by the development of plexiform neurofibromas, with craniofacial deformities caused by bone alterations and soft-tissue infiltration. The medical treatment of this disease is disappointing, and the surgical management of these deformities calls for aggressive procedures. There is a strong risk of(More)
The authors propose a combined approach for the treatment of orbito-palpebral haemangiomas. Two cases are presented and discussed. Pre-operative evaluation included coronal, axial, and sagittal CT scans as well as a selective arteriogram. These studies assisted the planning of the surgical approach. An intracranial/extracranial surgical approach was used(More)
BACKGROUND Graves' ophthalmopathy affects orbital contents and eyelids. Protrusion of the globe can also be the result of myopia and/or an abnormal orbit shape, which is responsible for nonsyndromic exorbitism. It is necessary to recognize these components of protrusion to treat patients adequately. The authors present a surgical strategy for treatment of(More)
Experience with the surgical management of cranio-orbital neurofibromatosis in 14 patients is reported (age range, 6-40 years). The skeletal abnormality of the orbit that occurs in a small proportion (less than 1%) of patients with neurofibromatosis is, in essence, the absence of the membranous portions of the sphenoid and the adjacent bone forming the(More)
Recent progress in plastic surgery techniques have clearly contributed to the improvement of the aesthetic prognosis of facial burns. However, although current excision-graft techniques achieve good quality skin, often in sufficient quantity, these grafts give the face a fixed, inexpressive, flat mask appearance, du to the inevitable phenomena of scar(More)
Suzanne Noël, a pioneer of aesthetic surgery in Europe, first published her results with cosmetic blepharoplasty in 1926, in a book entitled: "The social role of aesthetic surgery". Paul Tessier further expanded the range and surgical possibilities of blepharoplasty by incorporating lateral canthopexies and underlying the importance of the craniofacial(More)
