Blepharoptosis (ptosis) is one of the most common eyelid disorders encountered in ophthalmology. Several procedures have been developed to correct ptosis. The most common complications of ptosis surgery are well defined in the literature. Herein, we report a rare complication of superior rectus muscle paralysis following levator resection surgery for a(More)

Venous ulcers are characterised by longstanding and recurrent loss of skin integrity. Once occurred, healing is slow and recurrence is high because of inappropriate conditions of the wound bed. This study involves 20 patients with chronic venous ulcers at least 6 weeks of duration treated with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT). Patients underwent a(More)
AIM Large defects of the scalp, head and neck region are often encountered by plastic surgeons. The repair of such defects is dependent upon their location, size and depth. This study describes the use of large scalp flaps as a salvage procedure in the reconstruction of large scalp, head and neck region defects in elderly patients with poor general(More)

BACKGROUND Prominent ear deformity (PD) is an unacceptable condition of pinna that affects 5% of the population and is associated with emotional stress, behavioral disturbances, and social restrictions in relationships. Conchal hypertrphy, inadequate formation of antihelical fold, earlobe placement ahead than it should be, or various combinations of these(More)
Constricted ear deformity was first described by Tanzer and classified it into 3 groups according to the degree of constriction. The group IIB deformity involves the helix, scapha, and antihelical fold. The height of the ear is sharply reduced, and the soft tissue envelope is not sufficient to close the cartilage framework after expansion and reshaping.This(More)
