BACKGROUND Although there are patients who want cosmetic lateral canthoplasty to lengthen the lateral palpebral fissure of the lateral canthal area, no recommendable operational procedure exists that results in an acceptable scar formation. Because of the round eyeball shape, lengthening and widening of the lateral palpebral fissure should not be in the(More)
Epicanthoplasty is commonly performed on Asian eyelids. Consequently, overcorrection may appear. The aim of this study was to introduce a method of reconstructing the epicanthal fold and to apply this method to the patients. A V flap with an extension (eagle beak shaped) was designed on the medial canthal area. The upper incision line started near the(More)
The aim of this study was to elucidate the precise anatomy of the zygomaticomandibularis muscle through cadaveric dissection and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Five fresh human cadavers and 10 fixed cadavers were dissected. Nine preserved human cadavers were used for the MRI study. Four volunteers took MRIs of their head as well. Zygomaticomandibularis(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the volumetric and histologic changes of the acellular cadaveric dermis, lyophilized bovine pericardium, irradiated bovine tendon, and autologous cartilage transplanted subcutaneously in the rats. Four different kinds of implants were placed in subcutaneous pockets of the dorsum of 40 Wister rats. The implants with(More)
The aim of this study is to elucidate the microscopic structures above the superior fornix relation to blepharoptosis operation. Eight fixed cadavers of Korean adults were used. In six cadavers, 12 orbits were explored after removal of brain. In two cadavers, histologic sections were made. Below the levator, thick fibrous sheath was covering superior(More)
A Gram-stain-negative, cream-pigmented, aerobic, non-motile, non-spore-forming and short-rod-shaped bacterial strain, designated CAU 1123T, was isolated from mud from reclaimed land. The strain's taxonomic position was investigated by using a polyphasic approach. Strain CAU 1123T grew optimally at 37 °C and at pH 7.5 in the presence of 2 % (w/v) NaCl.(More)
