Inappropriate treatment or untreated fractures of the zygomaticoorbital area results in secondary deformities such as loss of malar projection, enophthalmos, and dystopia. Secondary deformities can be corrected with osteotomies, contour restoration, or a combination of both. Contour restoration can be performed with using onlay grafting with autogenous(More)
The objective of the current study was to investigate flap viability and to determine optimal delay time by designing various blood flow patterns in the superficial inferior epigastric (SIE) artery (A) and vein (V) flap model. Flaps measuring 7 x 7 cm were created in 42 Sprague-Dawley rats, which were divided into six groups. In group I rats (AV-AV), the(More)
Functional disorders due to alar valve collapse and cosmetic unsatisfactory results can be seen after rhinoplasty operation in some patients. Because of overresection of the upper and lower lateral cartilages, nasal lateral walls may collapse during inspiration pressing against the septum and obstructing airway. On the other hand, overresection may result(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this article is to present the long-term outcomes of ultra-thin polyethylene implants used for orbital floor reconstruction in facial trauma patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS From 1998 to 2004, 38 patients underwent orbital floor reconstruction with porous polyethylene implants with a mean follow-up of 4 years. A subciliary incision(More)
Nine patients with massive combat injuries of the lower extremities were treated with Ilizarov bone transport in conjunction with free muscle flap coverage. In 4 patients soft-tissue coverage was applied first, and distraction osteogenesis was initiated 4 to 6 weeks later. In 3 patients both methods were applied simultaneously, and in 2 patients soft-tissue(More)
A 5-year review of 101 cases of zygomatico-orbital fractures is presented. The epidemiology, fracture patterns, treatment modalities, and complications were evaluated in this retrospective study. A majority of fractures were sustained by males and resulted from trauma inflicted during altercations and traffic accidents. The most common fracture pattern was(More)
BACKGROUND This experimental study was designed to investigate and compare the effects of different anesthesia techniques on rat cremaster muscle flap microcirculation. METHODS Fifty male Sprague-Dawley rats (130-150 g body weight) were divided into five experimental groups containing ten animals each. Group I, group II, and group III were designated as(More)
In this report, the technical details of a new surgical technique are presented for the treatment of chronic recurrent dislocation of the temporomandibular joint. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Two millimeters of skin incision is carried out 2-2.5cm below the articular eminence, and a tunnel is created above the superficial(More)
Although there is a controversy about success and failure of autologous fat tissue transfers, it is a widely accepted method for soft tissue augmentation and is performed by many plastic surgeons as well as dermatologists all around the world. Its advantages are that it does not cause reactions, its absorption rates have been reduced by increased knowledge,(More)
Following transplantation, the microvascular endothelium and endothelial cells play a critical role in allograft rejection, as well as response to surgical trauma. In this study, endothelial-cell damage was assessed through microvascular permeability, and the role of surgical trauma was evaluated during the acute phase of limb allograft rejection. Eighteen(More)
