BACKGROUND At the beginning of the twentieth century, smallpox affected every continent and country in the world, but over the first half of the twentieth century this disease was eliminated in most countries, including Korea, thanks to the World Health Organization's eradication program. Most survivors of smallpox have facial scars with a distinct(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate whether a small dose of midazolam and lessening the propofol dosage could prevent cardiovascular change at tracheal intubation for induction in aged patients. METHODS Eighty patients over 65 years (ASA physical status 1, 2) scheduled for elective surgery received general anesthesia with remifentanil and(More)
which permits unrestricted non-commercial use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Retiform hemangioendothelioma was differentiated from low-grade cutaneous angiosarcoma by Calonje et al. [1] in 1994; retiform hemangioendothelioma is a very rare tumor of the blood vessels, with less than 30 cases(More)
The purposes of this study were to observe bony orbital volume (OV) changes in pure blow-out fractures according to fracture location using a facial computed tomographic scan and to investigate whether the OV measurements can be used as a quantitative value for the evaluation of the surgical results of the acute blow-out fracture.Forty-five patients with(More)
Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy is a hereditary, autosomal dominant, slowly progressive disorder with onset that occurs during middle age. Major symptoms are ptosis and dysphagia resulting primarily from selectively involved levator palpebrae and the pharyngeal muscles. Progressive, usually symmetrical blepharoptosis, with or without dysphagia, appears(More)
BACKGROUND Temporalis muscle transfer produces prompt surgical results with a one-stage operation in facial palsy patients. The orthodromic method is surgically simple, and the vector of muscle action is similar to the temporalis muscle action direction. This article describes transferring temporalis muscle insertion to reconstruct incomplete facial nerve(More)
BACKGROUND Restoring orbital volume in large blowout fractures is still a technically challenge to the orbital surgeon. In this study, we restored the orbital wall using the combination of transorbital and transnasal approach with additional supports from the paranasal sinuses, and we compared the surgical outcome to that of a conventional transorbital(More)
BACKGROUND Bioabsorbable plates and screws are commonly used to reduce maxillofacial bones, particularly in pediatric patients because they degrade completely without complications after bone healing. In this study, we encountered eight cases of a delayed foreign body reaction after surgical fixation with bioabsorbable plates and screws. METHODS A total(More)
Open reduction and anatomic reduction can create better function for the temporomandibular joint, compared with closed treatment in mandible fracture surgery. Therefore, the double miniplate fixation technique via mini-retromandibular incision was used in order to make the most stable fixation when performing subcondylar fracture surgery. Those approaches(More)
Accurate perioperative evaluation of enophthalmos is important to determine the adequacy of surgical repair in orbitozygomatic fracture. In this study, the authors evaluated the degree of enophthalmos using Hertel and Naugle exophthalmometry in patients with pure blowout fracture and orbitozygomatic fracture, and compared the results. Fifty patients were(More)
