Various materials have been proposed for cranial reconstruction. Bone autograft and alloplasts such as polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) and hydroxyapatite (HA) cement are most commonly used at the present time. Patients submitted for cranioplasty were evaluated. The prognostic factors influencing the results and the outcome were analyzed. Three hundred twelve(More)
Augmentation of the craniomaxillofacial region is required for many aesthetic and reconstructive procedures. A variety of different materials and techniques have been used. Coralline hydroxyapatite has proved to have biocompatible properties as a bone graft substitute. This study further analyzes the use of porous coral-derived hydroxyapatite granules in(More)
A method of harvesting fat with intact cells using a veterinary needle and a fine needle aspiration device is described. Viable fat cells are obtained in large amounts. A large subcutaneous postradiation thigh defect was reconstructed with harvested fat placed subcutaneously in various sessions. A good, but not perfect, reconstruction was obtained. This(More)
Keloids of the earlobe pose a complex management problem. They are relatively common sequelae of trauma or irritation to the skin of the earlobe, and usually appear in predisposed individuals as benign, smooth, globular outgrowths on one or both sides of the earlobe. Depending on their size, depth, and duration, a number of treatment approaches have been(More)
