Significant orbital trauma can result in orbital floor fractures with subsequent prolapse of the orbital contents into the paranasal sinuses. Prolapse of the periorbita can result in extraocular muscle entrapment, diplopia, enophthalmos, and even visual loss. Management of orbital floor fractures traditionally has been accomplished through transconjunctival(More)
BACKGROUND Recently developed endoscopic brow-lifting techniques and instrumentation are being used for treatment of anterior table frontal sinus fractures. Potential endoscopic treatment options include fracture reduction with or without plating and fracture repair with hydroxyapatite bone cement (HA). OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of miniplates and(More)
OBJECTIVES Recent literature has suggested that histopathologic analysis of routine tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy (T&A) specimens may be unnecessary. This study investigates T&A specimen handling practices in the United States between 1989 and 1999. METHODS Surveys were sent to 4715 members of the American Academy of Otolaryngology. Surveys assessed(More)
INTRODUCTION Traditional advanced imaging modalities such as CT and MRI are limited in their ability to perform accurate linear distance and angular measurements regardless of anatomical orientation. The construction of 3D models has been used to perform anthropometric analyses as well as in the reconstruction of rapid prototypes. We hypothesized that such(More)
OBJECTIVE The most accurate orbital reconstructions result from an anatomic repair of the premorbid orbital architecture. Many different techniques and materials have been used; unfortunately, there is currently no optimal method. This study compares the use of preformed vs intraoperative bending of titanium mesh for orbital reconstruction in 2-wall orbital(More)
OBJECTIVE : To demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of a novel software tool designed specifically for volumetric analysis of the orbit. METHODS : The software was evaluated for accuracy and speed in analysis of orbital CT data sets. The analysis included: 1) intraoperator error: one operator repeatedly evaluated a single orbit multiple times. The(More)
Frontal sinus fractures account for 5% to 15% of all maxillofacial injuries. Historically, a large percentage of these injuries were treated aggressively because of the long term risk of mucocele formation. This required a coronal incision with the associated surgical sequelae including a large scar, alopecia, and paresthesias. In light of these sequelae(More)
Orbital floor blow-out fractures (OBFs) result from trauma to the globe and periorbita. These fractures occur in repeatable patterns that can be endoscopically classified as either medial or lateral to the infraorbital nerve (V2). Medial fractures are the most common and can be separated into "trap door" and "blow-out" fractures. Fractures that extend(More)
OBJECTIVES Transconjunctival and subciliary approaches to orbital floor blowout fractures (OBF) have known risks of postoperative eyelid malposition. This study evaluates the endoscopic transmaxillary repair of OBFs in a cadaveric model and clinical setting. METHODS Sixteen cadaveric and 10 clinical OBFs were repaired endoscopically. A Caldwell-Luc(More)
Oral clefts are among the most common of all birth defects. The exact etiology of palatal clefting is unclear, however, it is believed to be a multifactorial disruption of embryologic morphogenesis. Evaluation of these patients is complex and requires a thorough understanding of palatal anatomy and embryology. A team approach is used to addresses the varied(More)
