OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether virtual surgery performed on 3-dimensional (3D) nasal airway models can predict postsurgical, biophysical parameters obtained by computational fluid dynamics (CFD). METHODS Presurgery and postsurgery computed tomographic scans of a patient undergoing septoplasty and right inferior turbinate reduction (ITR) were used to(More)
The cleft nasal deformity seen in patients with unilateral and bilateral cleft lip presents a formidable challenge for the facial plastic surgeon. The underlying anatomic deformities combined with scarring from previous procedures make secondary cleft rhinoplasty a difficult procedure for even the most experienced surgeons. Numerous techniques for secondary(More)
Prominent ears affect approximately 5% of the population and can have a significant psychological impact on patients. A wide variety of otoplasty techniques have been described, all sharing the goal of re-creating the normal appearance of the ear and achieving symmetry between the 2 sides. Recent trends in otoplasty techniques have consistently moved toward(More)
OBJECTIVES We describe the clinical presentation and management of a patient with a remote history of orbital trauma who presented with spontaneous right enophthalmos and radiographic findings consistent with silent sinus syndrome over 30 years after her initial orbital injury. METHODS The patient chart and imaging results were reviewed. A literature(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW The versatile and reliable paramedian forehead flap is the workhorse interpolated flap for nasal reconstruction and its use has been expanded to reconstruct other areas of the face. The goal of this article is to review the recent research describing the modern concepts and techniques in forehead flap reconstruction of facial defects. (More)
The outcomes of aesthetic and functional nasal surgery are difficult to assess objectively because of the intricate balance between nasal form and function. Despite historical emphasis on patient-reported subjective measures, objective measures are gaining importance in both research and the current outcomes-driven health care environment. Objective(More)
OBJECTIVE Propranolol has recently become the treatment of choice for management of subglottic and airway hemangiomas. This literature review aimed to determine the success rate of propranolol for managing these lesions as well as the rate of rebound growth following propranolol treatment cessation. STUDY DESIGN Literature search involving MEDLINE and(More)
We present a case of a 26-year-old man who sustained a close-range gunshot wound to the head. His injuries included significant left orbital injury resulting in a ruptured, blind eye and severely comminuted fractures of the left orbital roof, superior and inferior orbital rims, and orbital floor. Associated injuries included left frontal lobe injury,(More)
BACKGROUND Patients commonly present with complaints of postnasal drainage (PND) without objective evidence to support a sinonasal or infectious etiology. PND has been attributed to extra-esophageal reflux (EER), and an empiric trial of antireflux medication often is used to treat PND and associated symptoms. This study was performed to (1) evaluate the(More)
