Educational Objective: Parry-Romberg Syndrome is a rare disorder which results in progressive hemifacial atrophy. Microsurgical reconstruction is considered the gold standard for volume replacement after the progression ends and the facial structure stabilizes. However, many patients opt for less invasive procedures for facial augmentation. We pres...
Article
To determine the rate of hematoma formation in drainless deep-plane rhytidectomy and compare it with the rate using the same technique with the use of fibrin glue. This is a retrospective review of 605 patients (78 male and 527 female) who, over a 6-year period, underwent deep-plane face-lift surgery (n = 544) or lateral superficial musculoaponeuro...
Article
Neither tissue sealants nor short-scar face-lift incisions are new concepts in plastic surgery; however, their routine application together in a large series of patients may be. The short scar face-lift allows all face-lift patients to avoid any hair-bearing incisions; consequently, alopecia and hairline abnormalities are eliminated, as are thicken...

Polymorphous hemangioendotheliomas are rare, low-grade borderline malignant vascular tumors of endothelial cell origin. To the best of our knowledge (MEDLINE 1966-2002), there have been nine cases of polymorphous hemangioendothelioma reported in the English literature. Most of the initial patients reported were men, but we present the third case in...

We reviewed the outcomes of seven cancer patients who had been diagnosed with invasive fungal sinusitis; six patients had hematologic malignancies and one had breast cancer. At the time of their sinus diagnosis, all patie...

Surgical management of unilateral vocal cord paralysis has evolved over the last three decades. The recent use of type I thyroplasty has resulted in improvements in voice, swallowing, and respiration. The study was performed to evaluate our experience in 28 patients undergoing arytenoid adduction as part of their surgical rehabilitation of unilater...
Article
The transient expression of stress proteins in cells exposed to adverse environmental conditions is thought to provide a survival advantage. In the present study, the expression of the major mammalian stress protein, Hsp72, was characterized in the rat peripheral auditory system following varying periods of unilateral cochlear ischemia and reperfus...
