INTRODUCTION Orofacial clefts are the most common craniofacial anomaly observed in the United States. Permitted by recent advancements in anesthesia and multimodal pain management, there has been a trend toward outpatient cleft lip repair to alleviate hospital burden and minimize healthcare costs. The purpose of this study was to compare complication rates between outpatient and inpatient cleft lip repair from large national samples as well as identify preoperative factors that predicted dischar...

ABSTRACT Oral-facial-digital syndromes (OFDSs) represent a heterogenous group of embryonic development disorders characterized by malformations of the face, oral cavity, and extremities. Oral-facial-digital syndrome type II is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by median cleft lip, gingival frenula, cleft lobulated tongue, and polydactyly. There are few reports on surgical techniques for correction of incomplete median cleft lip. Here we describe a novel surgical method that we used to...

ABSTRACT This paper presents the outcomes of a pediatric bilateral condylar fracture treated with intermaxillary fixation (IMF) and an occlusal stop.A 6-year-old girl presented with the complaint of pain on her chin. She had fallen down, whereas riding a bicycle and her face hit the road. She had limited mouth-opening (10 mm). Panoramic radiography and computed tomography confirmed a bilateral condylar fracture. The inclination of the fractured condyle (IFC) was 39.2° and 42.4° on the left and r...

BACKGROUND Blood loss and subsequent transfusion are key concerns in the surgical management of craniosynostosis, and have been associated with increased morbidity, requirement for intensive care admission and increased length of hospital stay. Patient blood management guidelines advocate treatment of anemia before elective surgical procedures where significant blood loss is anticipated. At present there is little evidence in the literature investigating the clinical value of this practice in pe...

ABSTRACT Unilateral sphenoid dysplasia is a rare but distinctive manifestation of neurofibromatosis type 1, causing pulsatile exophthalmos, decreased vision, and facial deformity. Surgical intervention is required to prevent visual deterioration. However, the reconstruction of a complex cranial base defect while fulfilling cosmetic needs is challenging. The asymmetric anatomy impedes identification and preservation of vital structures, and the use of bone grafts is often unsustainable due to res...

ABSTRACT Perioperative management of bleeding in children can be challenging. Microvascular imaging techniques have allowed evaluating the effect of blood transfusion on the microcirculation, but little is known about these effects in children. We aimed to investigate the effects of blood management using macro- and micro-hemodynamic parameters measurement in children undergoing craniofacial surgery. This is a prospective observational repeated measurement study including fourteen children. The ...

ABSTRACT Mandibular fractures are the third most prevalent maxillofacial traumatic events. Surgical approaches to the condyle are a debated topic. This study describes a mini-invasive technique for condylar fracture reduction. The patient of this study suffered multiple traumatic injuries including a carotid artery dissecting aneurysm, which contraindicated the standard open reduction and internal fixation technique. The novel minimally invasive technique involves intraoral access and fracture f...
