The double pedicle flap taken from the upper lid was described for the first time in 1888 by Tripier. To our knowledge, it is the first case of reconstruction by a myocutaneous flap described in the literature. Other authors subsequently modified the first description. The same flap taken with a single inner pedicle is now usually employed. For the authors,… (More)
The periosteum of the temporal area is mentioned at different places in the literature: either against the osseous plane like everywhere in the human body, or between the deep and the superficial temporal fascia. The subperiosteal subtemporal approach in craniofacial surgery in children is in favour of a juxta-osseous localization of the periosteum. Ten… (More)
A case of bilateral spontaneous carotid-cavernous fistula with increased intra-ocular pressure is reported. Two new methods have been performed with success on this patient during successive interventions realised by two teams (maxillo-facial surgeons and neuroradiologists). Coils and sclerotic liquid are introduced by the distal superior ophthalmic vein.
The authors describe a craniofacial surgical approach that they have used since 1987. Based on existing anatomical continuity between the subtemporal plane and the cranial periosteum, it consists of a direct subperiosteal subtemporal cleavage. Preservation of continuity between the muscle and the periosteum allows the operator to return the temporalis… (More)
The advantages of partial anterior chondrotomy for correction of protruding ears are discussed and detailed explanations provided with respect to the different surgical stages involved. The simple postoperative course and efficacy of this procedure are emphasized.
Mollusc shells are composed of more than 95% calcium carbonate and less than 5% organic matrix consisting mostly of proteins, glycoproteins and polysaccharides. In this study, we investigated the effects of matrix macromolecular components extracted from the shells of two edible molluscs of economic interest, i.e., the blue mussel Mytilus edulis and the… (More)
The authors describe the anatomopathological, clinical and evolutive characteristics of the metatypical carcinoma, based on four cases and on the existing literature. Evolution of these tumors, with a maxillo-facial preferential location, is usually longer than for other cutaneous carcinomas. Cases presented in this article illustrate the severity of such… (More)
