BACKGROUND Advances in imaging, surgical technique, and perioperative care have made craniofacial resection (CFR) an effective and safe option for treating malignant tumors involving the skull base. The procedure does, however, have complications. Because of the relative rarity of these tumors, most existing data on postoperative complications come from(More)
PURPOSE Our aim was to determine the precision of MR imaging evaluation of perineural spread of head and neck tumors. METHODS Nineteen patients had complete extirpation of head and neck tumors (10 squamous cell carcinomas, four adenoid cystic carcinomas, one poorly differentiated carcinoma, one salivary duct carcinoma, one mucoepidermoid carcinoma, one(More)
Introduction Impact of treatment and prognostic indicators of outcome are relatively ill-defined in esthesioneuroblastomas (ENB) because of the rarity of these tumors. This study was undertaken to assess the impact of craniofacial resection (CFR) on outcome of ENB. Patients and Methods Data on 151 patients who underwent CFR for ENB were collected from 17(More)
Sexual reassignment surgery for individuals with gender identity confusion has been highly successful, especially in the male-to-female transformation. A troublesome problem for some of these individuals is the retention of their male voice. Although castration and estrogen therapy may produce minor elevations of pitch and the assumption of a falsetto voice(More)
Fine molecular mapping of the 4p16.3 aneuploidy syndromes in four translocation families EDITOR—Deletions of 4p16.3 have attracted considerable attention, particularly since the introduction of FISH and molecular techniques, and are associated with a variety of clinical pictures. Although all aVected subjects are mentally retarded, this can vary from(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study is to determine the prevalence of tobacco consumption (i.e., cigarette use) among survivors of head and neck cancer after treatment with radiation therapy (RT). METHODS AND MATERIALS A longitudinal study was conducted with 230 patients previously treated with RT for squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. All(More)
Maxillary osteotomies are done to correct discrepancies in structural facial harmony. The deformities involve retrusion or protrusion, as well as pathological shortening and elongation of the maxilla. Surgical orthopedics of the maxilla move the nose in part, or in whole, in relationship to the rest of the face. Corrective rhinoplasty is sometimes necessary(More)
Adult rats fed high concentrations of dietary protein for 9 weeks gained more weight than rats fed isoenergetic diets containing less protein. There were no significant differences in tail and body lengths among several groups of rats on diets containing different amounts of protein; however, total body fat was significantly greater in the rats fed on diets(More)

Much of craniofacial trauma involves the frontal sinuses. Because of its response to injury, the frontal sinus mucosa has an innate ability to develop mucoceles, and if infected, mucopyocoeles. This article presents a therapeutic algorithm for all forms of craniofacial trauma with concentration on the most severe injury-the through and through fracture and(More)
