    ABSTRACT: Purpose: In order to further assess the survival value of orbital exenteration in malignant orbital and periorbital tumors. Methods: The charts of 44 patients exenterated for a neoplasm of the orbit or periorbit mere reviewed in a retrospective study. Results: The overall 4-year survival was 45%, 26 patients had free margins on histological examination and 24 patients had developed local recurrence or metastasis. Local recurrence or metastasis were significantly more common in the group with transected margins than in the group with free-margins (p=0.01). Survival between the group of patients with local recurrence or metastasis and the group without local recurrence or metastasis showed statistically significant difference (p=0.0025). In contrast, survival between the group of patients with free margins and the group with transected margins did not show statistically significant difference (p=0.13), Conclusion: Surgical free margins section is a key element in successful cancer surgery but seems not the only prognosis variable.

    ABSTRACT: Split skin graft is frequently needed in the treatment of burned patients. Scalp is often free of burns. Due to its good skin quality and important surface, scalp is a very interesting skin donor site, specially in case of children. A controlled, randomised clinical trial was carried out in 10 French Plastic Surgery or Burns Units. It assessed the efficacy and the acceptability of calcium alginate dressing (Algosteril) versus paraffin gauze dressing (Jelonet) in the treatment of scalp donor sites in children. 67 children (mean age 54 months) entered the study, 34 in the alginate group and 33 in the control group. Follow-up visits were on day 2/d3, d5/d6, Day complete healing, d30 and d60 after surgery. The two groups were comparable on inclusion (demographic characteristics, burn nature and surface, donor site surface and thickness of split skin graft). The mean healing time was 10 and 11 days for Algosteril and Jelonet group respectively (ns). The quality of the newly formed tissue was estimated to permit a sooner skin reharvesting in the Algosteril group than in the control group (p = 0.003). Bleeding through dressing was significantly less important in the Algosteril group (p = 0.02). Changes were considered by investigators less painful with Algosteril on day complete healing (p = 0.0096). Hair growth is homogenous in both groups on day 30 and day 60 (ns). These results showed that scalp is a very interesting skin donor site and that Algosteril is of a real interest in donor site treatment.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of cleft care is to favor a normal socialization of patients with fewer therapeutic coercion. It supposes a full multidisciplinary team including psychologist, speech therapeutic, dental orthopedist, oto-rhino-laryngologist and surgeons. All of them have to be well trained which supposes a sufficient amount of cases: anglo-saxon studies have proven that a mean of at least 20 new cases per year of primary cleft were necessary. With purposes to enhance the effectiveness of treatment: prospective studies and measurements of results must be evaluated with the help of objective criteria. These are the goals of our team in lille. Our surgical principles are those of functional procedures, which privilege the muscle function's repair.

    ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: To report a newborn with van der Woude syndrome, Pierre Robin sequence, and oral synechiae. Pierre Robin sequence is a rare manifestation of van der Woude syndrome as are oral synechiae. We speculate that the oral synechiae may be causally related to the development of Pierre Robin sequence in this patient.

    ABSTRACT: To review the possible craniomaxillofacial deformative consequences associated with ectodermal dysplasias and embryonic malformations, which include dental ageneses. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, University Hospital, Lille, France. Sixteen patients (seven boys and nine girls, aged 4 to 34 years) with pure ectodermal dysplasia (no ectodermal dysplasia syndromes). All patients had a clinical examination. Seven (two boys and five girls, aged 4 to 25 years) had undergone plaster casts and radiographic and Delaire's cephalometric studies before being treated. All patients had tooth ageneses (from hypodontia to anodontia), associated with cutaneous dyshidrosis and hair and nail dystrophy. Most of them had a short face, with an unusual facial concavity, a maxillary retrusion, and a relative mandibular protrusion. MANAGEMENT RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: Depending on their ages and their orthopedic abnormalities, patients underwent either dental or prosthodontic, orthodontic, orthopedic, orthognathic, or implant treatment. So as not to interfere with the growth pattern, we preferred to reserve implant and orthognathic surgery for full-grown cases. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons must undertake a comprehensive approach to these patients to improve their dental, masticatory, growing, and orthognathic conditions.

    ABSTRACT: The authors report an original 1.9-micrometers diode laser assisted microvascular anastomosis (LAMA) in human. This technique has been applied in 20 patients during reconstructive surgery for digital replantations (nequals6), for digital revascularizations (nequals4) and for free flap transfers (nequals10). LAMA were always performed on vessel (16 arteries and 6 veins) which did not impede the chance of success of the surgical procedure in case of thrombosis. LAMA was performed with a 1.9-micrometers diode laser after placement of 2 equidistant stitches at 180 degrees. The diode spot was obtained by means of a 300-micrometers optic fiber transmitted to the vessel wall via a pencil size hand piece. The following parameters were used: spot size equals 500 micrometers , power equals 70 to 220 mW, pulse duration equals 0.7 to 3 seconds. Ten to 15 spots were applied on each face. The mechanism involved is a thermal effect on the collagen of the adventitia and media leading to a phenomenon which the authors have termed 'heliofusion'. Immediate assessment consisted in evaluating the permeability by patency test (O'Brien) and water tightness. Secondary assessment consisted in evaluating the clinical success, confirmed by Doppler at one month.

    ABSTRACT: An aneurysm of the medium arteries is one of the major complications of Kawasaki syndrome. Eleven cases of giant coronary aneurysm have been reported. CASE REPORT: We report a new case in a nine-month-old child. Ischemia of the left hand was the first symptom. Diagnosis was made 30 days later. Anticoagulant and fibrinolytic treatments did not prevent necrosis of four fingers. CONCLUSION: The prognosis of Kawasaki disease depends on early diagnosis and management. Infants younger than seven months of age are more susceptible to developing coronary and midartery aneurysms, which therefore justifies a close observation during the acute phase and later on. In the case of a coronary artery aneurysm, Doppler echography of the upper and lower limbs is mandatorily recommended. Anticoagulant therapy should be started once the diagnosis of mid-artery aneurysms is made. Ischemia of the extremities can lead to necrosis and amputation. Until now, anticoagulants, vasodilators and fibrinolytic agents were not proven to be effective.

    ABSTRACT: The CATCH 22 association (Cardiac defect, Abnormal facies, Thymic hypoplasia, Cleft palate, Hypocalcemia) combines certain signs common to various syndromes (Di-George syndrome, velocardiofacial syndrome, etc.) in combination with a 22q11 chromosomal microdeletion. Velopharyngeal insufficiency can be a complementary sign, or even a presenting sign of this chromosomal anomaly. After clinical examination of these patients, velopharyngeal insufficiency appeared to be due to a deep nasopharynx rather than to a short soft palate. We therefore reviewed 11 patients with teleradiography. We studied the length of the soft palate, the depth of the nasopharynx, the ratio of the depth of the nasopharynx over the length of the soft palate, and we compared our results with those observed in reference populations. The results demonstrate nasopharyngeal disproportion with a normal length of the soft palate and increased depth of the nasopharynx. This anatomical finding therefore encourages us to propose sphincteroplasty rather than velopharyngoplasty.

    ABSTRACT: A series of 11 inferior gluteal free flaps is presented in eight patients with a mean age of 3 years and 3 months. The flap has been used four times for breast reconstruction, five times for the sequelae of axillary and popliteal burns, and twice for posttraumatic problems. Three necrosis were observed due to poor limb vascularity (electric burns, atheroma, sequelae of trauma). It is possible to form a pedicle of 7–8 cm. There is minimal donor site scarring which is the flap’s strong point. Undoubtedly this flap deserves a place with other classical breast reconstruction techniques. It can also be used as a back-up technique for release of contractures over joints.

    ABSTRACT: Conservative management is usually proposed for common childhood hemangiomas because most lesions resolve spontaneously. The authors report 29 cases of children with hemangiomas treated surgically. Surgical indications were defined at various stages. The study concerned 29 children operated in our pediatric surgery and plastic surgery departments between 1989 and 1995. The average postoperative follow-up was 3 years and 8 months. The average age of the patients was 5 years; two-thirds of children were girls. The hemangioma was a very large lesion, subcutaneous and cutaneous (mixed) in 23 cases, only subcutaneous in 2 cases, only cutaneous in 4 cases, and was located on the face in 19 cases. Six complications (5 ulcerations, 1 Kassabach-Merritt syndrome) were observed.

    ABSTRACT: The multidisciplinary consultations are an increasingly frequent disease management with complex pathologies. Each actor knows “a priori” the calendar of its own interventions. During this consultation, these various actors will have to negotiate their calendar with the other speakers. It is significant to have a good representation of the events of these calendars on a time-line with an univocal and reproducible representation. This talk shows how speakers of a multidisciplinary consultation carry out a chart of the calendar of assumption of responsibility. This graph is used as model to establish a proposal of optimal calendar. This calendar is connected, with the various decisions from each one, to a context which can change according to the evolution of the diseases. This model allows the creation of a programming tool written in Prolog IV for the management of the calendar under constraint

    ABSTRACT: Gynecomastia is the commonest breast lesion in males. Fifty-two patients (mean age 24 years) operated in our department were reviewed with a mean follow-up of two years and a half. Gynecomastia occurred most frequently during puberty (63%), was bilateral (75%) and idiopathic (65%). The size of the enlargement was evaluated according to Simon's-classification based on breast-volume and skin-redundancy. 18 stage 1, 22 stage 2A, 9 stage 2B, 3 stage 3. Clinical examination and mammography determined the consistency of gynecomastia: adipose or firm. 4 different surgical managements were used: 32 subcutaneous mastectomies, 12 liposuctions, 6 liposuctions assocaited with subcutaneous mastectomy, 1 total mastectomy. One patient had liposuction on one side and subcutaneous mastectomy on the other one. All techniques gave good morphologic results. Nonetheless, the authors recommend the combination "liposuction and subcutaneous mastectomy", as this technique presents many advantages: small intraoperative blood loss, good skin redraping, short hospital stay, complete histologic examination of the material removed.

    ABSTRACT: The authors reported an original 1.9 micrometer diode laser assisted microvascular anastomosis (LAMA) in human. This technique has been applied in 12 patients during reconstructive surgery for digital replantations (n equals 2), for digital revascularizations (n equals 3) and for free flap transfers (n equals 7). Fourteen end-to-end anastomoses (10 arteries, 4 veins) were performed. LAMA were always performed on vessel which did not impede the chance of success of the surgical procedure in case of thrombosis. LAMA was performed with a 1.9 micrometer diode laser after placement of 2 equidistant stitches. The didoes spot was obtained by means of an optic fiber transmitted to the vessel wall via a pencil size hand piece. The used parameters were as followed: spot size equals 400 micrometer, power equals 70 to 220 mW, time equals 0.7 to 2 seconds, mean fluence equals 115 J/cm2. The mechanism involved is a thermal effect on the collagen of the adventitia and media leading to a phenomena which the authors have termed 'heliofusion.' This preliminary trial has permitted to define the modalities of its use in human. The technique is simple, rapid and easily learned. The equipment is not cumbersome, sterilizable and very ergonomic. LAMA does not replace sutures but is complementary, thanks to a reduction in the number of stitches used and to an access to surgical areas which are not easily accessible. This study must be completed by a larger scale study to confirm this technique and its reliability. Others uses could performed on different tissues such as biliary and urinary track, specially under laparoscopic conditions.

    ABSTRACT: The persistence of a residual communication between mouth and nose, is an important sequela a after primary closing of cleft palate. This retrospective study reports twenty-one cases of a new technique (retro-incisive flap) used for closing this residual communication. This flap is an easy and reliable method with an 85% success rate, so we recommend it as the first choice in this indication.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to present a measuring tool, in the form of a dual-rating grid, for preoperative appearance and postoperative results in the treatment of labionasal clefts. This study was carried out on 43 children with partial unilateral clefts, operated on using a derivation of Millard's technique. The preoperative initial severity score (ISS) was the sum of points each corresponding to a precise anatomic anomaly. A severe cleft was given a rating of 6, and a mild cleft a rating of 1. The postoperative results score (PRS) was the sum of points corresponding to residual or acquired anatomic anomalies: a good result was given 0.5, and a poor result 3.5. Each score was a mark given separately and agreed on by two surgeons. To compare the rating grids, the correlation between the ISS and the PRS was calculated. Twenty-four patients had an ISS less than 5; 19 patients had an IGS more than or equal to 5. Marks for the PRS were between 0.5 and 3.5 with the majority at 1 to 1.5. This study demonstrates the coherent connection between these two pre- and postoperative rating grids.
