STUDY DESIGN Controlled human cadaver study testing the biomechanical(More)
OBJECTIVE We introduce a new metric for measuring nasal tip rotation, the "columellar facial angle." The present study aimed to determine the degree of correlation of the nasolabial angle, the nostril axis, and the columellar-facial angle as metrics of nasal tip rotation in healthy volunteers. The study also aimed to identify any nasal or facial features(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS The surgical correction of nostril stenosis and external nasal valve collapse typically involves the addition of tissue to widen and strengthen these areas. However, over the ensuing months, postoperative scar contracture may act to reverse the surgical modifications. This study aimed to determine the safety and efficacy of the use of(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Retropharyngeal abscesses are a difficult to diagnose condition in children. Though some children with such abscesses can be managed with intravenous (IV) antibiotics alone, our group has argued that surgical drainage is the gold standard for safe management and likely leads to shorter hospital stays. We present prospective data on(More)
