Background null Nasal defects following Mohs resection are a reconstructive challenge, demanding aesthetic and functional considerations. Many reconstructive modalities are available, each with varying utility and efficacy. The goal of this study was to provide an algorithmic approach to nasal reconstruction and illustrate lessons learned from decades of reconstructing Mohs defects. null Methods null A retrospective review was conducted of consecutive patients who underwent nasal reconstruction ...
SUMMARY Nasal tip deprojection is a common goal in rhinoplasty. Several techniques have been described, many of which require destructive techniques that compromise the intrinsic integrity and morphology of the lateral crura. Through lateral translocation of the domes and shortening of the medial crura, nasal tip deprojection can be achieved without disrupting the integrity of the lateral crura. The domes are recreated lateral to the intrinsic domes with a standard transdomal suture, and excess ...

BACKGROUND Little is known about the detailed growth of the cranial fossae, even though they provide an important structural connection between the cranial vault and the facial skeleton. This study details the morphologic development of isolated cranial vault synostosis and associated syndromes on cranial fossa development. METHODS A total of 125 computed tomographic scans were included (nonsyndromic bicoronal synostosis, n = 36; Apert syndrome associated with bicoronal synostosis, n = 24; Crouz...

Background null Despite advances in melanoma management, there remains room for improvement in the accuracy of sentinel lymph node biopsy. The authors analyzed a prospective cohort of patients with primary cutaneous melanoma who underwent sentinel lymph node biopsy with lymphoscintigraphy and indocyanine green fluorescence to evaluate the quality and accuracy of this technique. null Methods null Consecutive primary cutaneous melanoma patients who underwent sentinel lymph node biopsy with radiois...

SUMMARY: The coronavirus disease of 2019 pandemic became a global threat in a matter of weeks, with its future implications yet to be defined. New York City was swiftly declared the epicenter of the pandemic in the United States as case numbers grew exponentially in a matter of days, quickly threatening to overwhelm the capacity of the health care system. This burgeoning crisis led practitioners across specialties to adapt and mobilize rapidly. Plastic surgeons and trainees within the New York U...

BACKGROUND Time-based training models in plastic surgery vary in exposure, resulting in low confidence levels among graduates. The evolution of postgraduate medical education into a competency-based model to address these issues requires an understanding of interventions described in the plastic surgery literature to identify gaps and guide creation of assessments to demonstrate competence. METHODS A systematic search of the MEDLINE, Embase, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literatu...

BACKGROUND Hand surgeons have the potential to substantially decrease the surgical disability burden in the developing world through educator trips. The Lancet Commission supports contextually driven educator trips grounded in the needs of local hosts, yet few organizations perform a comprehensive assessment of learning interests or the hosting institutions' surgical capacity before the trips. METHODS The authors adapted the Personnel, Infrastructure, Procedures, Equipment, and Supplies question...

Background null The role of nutritional intervention in wound care has been a topic of controversy. Although the efficacy of macronutrient supplementation has been well described, there is a paucity of evidence and no official recommendation regarding the use of vitamins and minerals to optimize wound healing. This is the first review of vitamin and mineral wound intervention that systematically summarizes the literature using Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses gu...

BACKGROUND The primary element of a crooked nose is a midline deviation of the nasal pyramid. To date, no surgical strategies have been described as compatible with the philosophy of dorsal preservation. The dorsal preservation technique differs from the Joseph structured rhinoplasty because it preserves both the keystone area and the continuity of the cartilaginous vault. The authors focused on the versatility of the dorsal preservation technique even for the deviated nose, introducing the "Pis...
