BACKGROUND This study was the result of a constant evaluation of surgical techniques and results to obtain excellence in primary cleft rhinoplasty. METHODS This was a retrospective study from 1992 to 2003 comparing the long-term outcomes of four techniques of nasal reconstruction. There were 76 patients divided into four groups: group I (n = 23 patients),(More)
BACKGROUND Vulvar defects result chiefly from oncologic resection of vulvar tumors. Reconstruction of vulvar defects restores form and function for the purpose of coitus, micturition, and defecation. Many surgical options exist for vulvar reconstruction. The purpose of this article is to present our experience with vulvar reconstruction. METHODS From 2007(More)
OBJECTIVE We hypothesize that primary repair of submucous cleft palate (SMCP) with Furlow palatoplasty will not lead to significant differences in speech outcomes for syndromic and nonsyndromic children. DESIGN Retrospective analysis of patients with primary Furlow repair of SMCP between 2004 and 2012. SETTING Tertiary care center. (More)
Flap coverage is ideal for wounds exposing bone and tendon, but technically less demanding and speedier options might be considered for small shallow wounds and for wounds with adjacent tissue loss precluding local flaps. We revisited the use of autologous dermal grafting-in combination with vacuum-assisted closure (VAC)-for such wounds.Five small- to(More)
Palatal clefts in conjunction with space-occupying lesions of the oral or nasal cavities are of interest because they may represent a developmental etiology of palatal clefts. Epignathus is a rare space-occupying tumor of the nasopharynx that can arise from the upper jaw, palate, and sphenoid. It can protrude through the mouth, causing respiratory(More)
The poor solubility of many newly discovered drugs has resulted in numerous challenges for the time-controlled release of therapeutics. In this study, an advanced drug delivery platform to encapsulate and deliver hydrophobic drugs, consisting of poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles incorporated within poly (ethylene glycol) (PEG) microgels,(More)
BACKGROUND The distally based sural artery flap is a reliable, local reconstructive option for small soft tissue defects of the distal third of the leg. The purpose of this study is to describe an adipofascial flap based on a single sural nerve branch without sacrificing the entire sural nerve, thereby preserving sensibility of the lateral foot.

PURPOSE To evaluate pharyngeal airway space (PAS; nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal, and total airway) volume and the correlation of an obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and hypopnea syndrome screening questionnaire (STOP-BANG) with various mandibular setbacks during bimaxillary surgery and compare these findings with an age- and gender-matched skeletal Class I(More)
