The aim of this study is to present our management protocol of sphenopalatine artery bleeding, demonstrating that nasoendoscopic cautery (NC) was a more effective method than the nasal packing, in terms of shorter inpatient stay and reduced complications rate. We present ten posterior epistaxis not resolved by nasal packing. Tabotamp® was placed in the area(More)
Fibula modeling techniques for mandible reconstruction carry a high risk of bone perfusion impairment and low predictability of osteotomy angles. To restore the parabolic shape of the mandible, the number of osteotomies should be as small as possible to preserve both periosteal and endosteal perfusion. We report our approach with sagittal split osteotomy(More)
INTRODUCTION In 1997, Morykwas et al introduced negative pressure dressings to manage complicated wounds; since its introduction, the vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) system has been successfully used in the fields of general surgery, orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, and gynecology. Recently, some authors described this technique to manage complex wounds(More)
It is generally recognised by surgeons that there are anatomical variations of the popliteal artery and its branches, and knowledge of these has important clinical implications for fibula flap harvest. The aim of this study was to report our experience on 101 fibula free flaps, highlighting a new type of anatomical variation of the peroneal artery in a(More)
Osteomas are the most common benign tumors of the paranasal sinuses. They are usually localized in the frontal sinus and less often in the other paranasal sinuses. In this article, we report the surgical treatment of an unknown frontal sinus osteoma discovered after an acute exophthalmos. We have chosen an external approach to obtain a radical excision of(More)
BACKGROUND There is a multitude of reported surgical approaches and technical variants with some unresolved technical problems to gain direct access to mandibular condylar head fractures; they can be divided into 2 groups: intraoral and extraoral. In 2005, Neff et al (Mund Kiefer Gesichtschir 2005;9:80), supported by a previous experimental work, reported a(More)
Ameloblastic carcinoma (AC) is a rare neoplasm of the maxillofacial district. It usually occurs in the posterior region of the jaw. In one third of cases, it occurs in the maxilla, usually in the posterior portion. From a review of international literature, we found 60 cases described. A 77-year-old patient presented to our division of maxillofacial surgery(More)
The nose is the most common site for facial skin cancer; nonmelanoma skin cancers are the most common tumors of this region. Median and paramedian forehead flaps have been proposed for nasal defects greater than 2.5-3 cm in diameter. The aim of this study was to describe a peculiar case of a recurrence of a squamous cell carcinoma in a forehead flap of a(More)

Hemangiopericytoma is a vascular tumor that is believed to arise from the Zimmermann's pericytes, smooth muscles cells localized around the blood vessels. This tumor presents as a slowly enlarging painless mass with a clear predilection for the musculoskeletal system. The aim of this work was to introduce a peculiar case of a tongue hemangiopericytoma(More)
