The technique of total lower lip reconstruction with a composite radial forearm-palmaris longus free flap was further refined in this report. A ventral tongue flap enhanced the lip aesthetics by recreating the vermilion. Lip suspension was enhanced by securing the palmaris tendon to the malar eminences as well as to the cut ends of the orbicularis oris… (More)
Onion bulbs are concentric lamellar structures formed by Schwann or perineurial cells, which may be seen in several generalized or localized diseases of the peripheral nerve. There is debate regarding the pathogenesis of localized tumefactions displaying these microscopic structures. We report the fifth case, to our knowledge, of a Schwann cell-onion bulb… (More)

A pseudoaneurysm originating at the petrous portion of the internal carotid artery was initially misinterpreted on MR images as typical postoperative change within a resolving abscess cavity.… (More)
