Bhama and colleagues describe a methodology for prospective evaluation of patients with facial paralysis that permits optimal assessment of clinical outcomes.
Boahene et al measure the available excursion of the temporalis muscle-tendon unit after release from the coronoid in 13 consecutive patients undergoing the temporalis muscle-tendon transfer procedure for facial reanimation. Tension was varied on the released tendon during electrical stimulation of the muscle to determine the optimal muscle length.
Hohman et al establish functional recovery parameters after interposition autografting in a rodent facial nerve model.
SecLevelofEvidenceMoubayed and colleagues report a precise anatomical study of tip position in rhinoplasty on cadaveric specimen.
Jacono et al compare the occurrence of distal edge necrosis between subcutaneous and deep-plane dissection methods for reconstructive cervicofacial rotation-advancement flaps.
Andretto Amodeo et al define the connection between the superficial layer of the deep temporal fascia and the prezygomatic area and demonstrate the presence of a deep fascial layer in the midface.
To determine if the KLS Martin Sonic Weld system provides plate-screw construct stability in human head specimens even when placed at acute angles in midface fracture repair fixation compared with conventional plating systems that use titanium plates, Carron and coauthors tested 20 cadaveric head specimens.
Sadick and colleagues present a new surgical technique for lobule correction in otoplasty.
Ahmed et al describe soft-tissue reconstruction using a novel magnet-retained facial prosthesis without osseointegrated abutments, performed in a patient after traumatic loss of the entire left lower part of the face, including lips, commissure, and mentum.
Pawar and Wang review anatomy of the cleft nasal deformity, repair strategies and timing, surgical techniques for both unilateral and bilateral cleft nasal deformity, and outcomes for secondary cleft rhinoplasty.
