The article by Fisher and Frodel titled “Facial Suspension With Acellular Dermal Allograft”1 was a retrospective review of 11 consecutive patients with facial paralysis who were treated with such acellular dermis grafts. This graft was noted to produce good early results in our 1999 study.1 In our review, we stressed the importance of using such grafts in a subset of patients that might have otherwise been treated with material such as expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE; GORE-TEX; W. L. Gore Associates Inc, Flagstaff, Arizona) or autogenous material such as fascia lata.
