Platelet-Rich Plasma in Cosmetic Surgery

Abstract

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma containing an above baseline level of platelets and growth factors. PRP is an emerging new treatment utilized to enhance wound healing and has been in clinical use over the last several decades within many disciplines, such as orthopedic, oral-maxillofacial and cardiac surgery. Recently, PRP has come to the attention of esthetic surgeons, with burgeoning new applications ranging from hair restoration to soft tissue augmentation. The goal of this review is to describe the current body of literature on PRP as it pertains to the field of esthetics, and to review its current real-world applications. PRP's utility in cosmetic surgery is rapidly growing and offers a promising and exciting new therapeutic modality.

A New External Landmark for Mental Foramen

[Year:2013] [Month:Number] [Volume:5] [Number:1] [Pages:5] [Pages No:7 - 11]

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this study was to establish a new external landmark of mental foramen to help facilitate prediction of the location during local anesthesia and during surgery of mandibular region.

Materials and methods

One hundred and ten adult Thai cadavers of 61 males and 49 females from Department of Anatomy, Faculty of Science, Mahidol University were included in this study. The anatomy of mental foramen in 110 adult Thai cadavers (220 sides) was studied from 2008 until 2011. Measurements in vertical plane were made: (i) From gingival sulcus to mental foramen = A, (ii) from mental foramen to inferior border of mandible = B, and (iii) the ratio of A/A + B = D.

Measurements in horizontal plane were also made: (i) From symphysis menti to the mental foramen = S (in straight line and not related to mandibular curvature), and (ii) from symphysis menti to the mental foramen = C (in curved line related to mandibular curvature), and (iii) in relation to position of lower tooth/teeth, and (iv) in relation to cheilions (corners of the mouth).

Results

The results included 61 male and 49 female cadavers. On the right side, the proportion of A/A + B (D) of male and female was 0.50 and 0.46. On the left side, the proportion of A/A + B (D) of male and female was 0.50 and 0.46. The location of right and left cheilion was related with the position of mental foramen, mostly at center (male: 63.93 and 70.49%, female: 61.22 and 73.47%). If center ± 0.3 cm it was possible to find the mental foramen more easily than the point of the center (male: 95.08 and 91.80%, female: 87.76 and 93.88%). If center ± 0.5 cm, it could find the mental foramen more easily than the point of the center ± 0.3 cm (male: 98.36 and 98.36%, female: 95.92 and 97.96%).

Conclusion

The knowledge gained from this study is quite important, since it helps the surgeon to easily identify the mental foramen prior to surgery which is halfway between gingival sulcus and inferior border of mandible in vertical plane and at the cheilion position in horizontal plane.

Abstract

This article describes the anatomy of the nose and the principles of analysis of the nose and face that will aid a successful rhinoplasty. The analysis is based on the Caucasian female face and appropriate alterations will be needed in considering male patients and those with a differing ethnicity.

Management of the Internal Nasal Valve

Abstract

Nasal obstruction is one of the most common nose complaints. Internal nasal valve dysfunction is an important cause of nasal obstruction, particularly in patients who have a previous history of nasal trauma or reduction rhinoplasty. Correct assessment is crucial for accurate diagnosis and appropriate management planning. Various surgical and nonsurgical modalities for addressing the problem of internal nasal valve collapse are being reviewed in this paper. Each technique have their own advantages and disadvantage, and the choice depends on the underlying pathology, patient preference, availability of graft material. The rhinoplasty surgeon should have a thorough understanding of the available options as part of his/her armamentarium in dealing with internal nasal valve pathology.

Removal of Angiofibroma with Maxillary and Mandibular Swing: A Clinical Report

[Year:2013] [Month:Number] [Volume:5] [Number:1] [Pages:5] [Pages No:24 - 28]

Abstract

Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma is vascular tumor found in adolescent males. With development of endoscopic fraternity, tumor can be addressed successfully with endoscopic approach; but one needs maximum exposure for large angiofibroma with local infiltration around. Maxillary and mandibular swing technique for removal of the tumor gives excellent exposure and good control on vascularity of the tumor.

Postoperative follow-up for 1 year has shown minimal visible scar, cosmetic deformity in the patient.
