BACKGROUND Craniosynostosis following placement of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt for hydrocephalus has been sporadically described. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the general risk of developing craniosynostosis in this patient population. METHODS The authors retrospectively reviewed records and radiographs of infants who underwent ventriculoperitoneal shunt placement for hydrocephalus from 2006 to 2012. Recorded variables included date of shunt placement, demographics, comorbi...
BACKGROUND Despite successful legislative efforts by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the Plastic Surgery Political Action Committee remains underused. Participation in advocacy and financial contributions of ASPS members fall below those of similar surgical subspecialties. This study aims to perform a data-driven investigation into the impact of Plastic Surgery Political Action Committee efforts on the practicing plastic surgeon. METHODS A retrospective review of the ASPS proced...

BACKGROUND Retrobulbar filler injection has recently been considered an ideal method for orbital volume enhancement due to its nontoxic, easily reversible, and noninvasive characteristics. This study determined the arterial distribution in the orbit with the aim of defining a safety zone for retrobulbar filler injections used to enhance the orbital volume. METHODS Twenty-seven orbits of 24 formalin-embalmed cadavers were dissected. The orbital arteries were identified after removal of the eyebal...
