OBJECTIVE Despite the increasing popularity of propranolol for treatment of infantile hemangioma (IH), there is need for further evidence of efficacy and safety. This study is a retrospective review of one institution's experience treating IH with propranolol using a standard protocol. METHODS Between 2009 and 2014, patients with IH were evaluated for(More)
BACKGROUND Few reports exist on sport-related craniofacial fracture injuries in the pediatric population. Most patients with craniofacial injuries are adults, and most studies on pediatric sport injuries do not focus specifically on craniofacial fractures. The authors' goal was to provide a retrospective, descriptive review of the common mechanisms of(More)
BACKGROUND Repair of complex cranial defects is hindered by a paucity of appropriate donor tissue. Bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP2) and transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGFβ1) have been shown separately to induce bone formation through physiologically distinct mechanisms and potentially improve surgical outcome for cranial defect repair by obviating(More)
BACKGROUND Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) has been shown to be an effective therapy in the acute calvarial defect wound and in calvarial defects complicated by chronic scar and radiation. The authors assessed the effectiveness of rhBMP-2-mediated bone regeneration in calvarial defects complicated by durectomy. METHODS Sixteen(More)
BACKGROUND This study demonstrates the safety and efficacy of allograft alone in revision alveolar bone graft surgery. METHODS A retrospective review of the authors' institution's alveolar bone graft experience (from 2004 to 2012) with open iliac crest bone graft, minimal-access iliac crest bone graft plus supplemental allograft, and revision allograft(More)
BACKGROUND The safety and efficacy of supplemental allograft combined with iliac crest autograft as a treatment for cleft alveolus defects is poorly characterized. The authors report the safety and efficacy of supplemental demineralized bone matrix and cancellous allograft with iliac crest bone autograft in cleft alveolar bone defects. METHODS A(More)
BACKGROUND Dermal regenerate templates are currently widely used in both adult and pediatric burn reconstruction. Despite this, the safety and efficacy of regenerate templates combined with full-thickness skin grafts for the reconstruction of pediatric facial defects traditionally treated with local flaps is not widely published. The aim of this study is to(More)
BACKGROUND Congenital breast anomalies present challenging management decisions to the plastic surgeon. One must consider the optimal age of reconstruction as well as the ideal surgical technique. Amazia, a very rare condition characterised by a complete lack of breast tissue in the presence of a nipple areolar complex (NAC), is one such congenital breast(More)
We report a case of an 11-year-old patient presenting with a displaced anterior table frontal sinus fracture, resulting in a contour deformity. Fractures of the anterior table that result in contour irregularities may be an indication for operative management. The frontal sinus, however, continues to develop through late adolescence, and our patient's(More)
