We describe a new technique for the surgical reconstruction of large-sized anterior septal perforations based on the pericranial flap. The technique requires a standard open rhinoplasty combined with a pericranial flap harvested after a bicoronal approach and tunnelled to the nasal cavity. We present the case of a man with complete destruction of t...

... Few methods have been described to simplify the markings and shorten the learning curve. 8,9 Our method using the malleable ruler has simplified the preoperative markings and shortened the learning curve, especially at the beginning of our experience with the Hall-Findlay technique. Its pliability and adaptability allowed us to use it in breasts of different sizes and shapes, and the possibility of varying the area of the semicircle gave us the chance to remove more breast tissue from the upper pole, especially in large breast reduction. ...
... Though the systematic review by Kim and Rhee failed to establish the interposition graft as a significant factor in the surgical success of NSP repair [11], other reviews have concluded that these grafts significantly improve surgical success rates [29]. There are myriad options for interposition grafts including autografts like septal or auricular cartilage, temporalis fascia, mastoid fascia, or pericranium, and alloplasts such as acellular human dermis (Alloderm), polytetrafluoroethylene (Gortex), and polydioxanone (PDS) [11,23,24,[29][30][31]. Moon et al. concluded that though the interposition graft improved the surgical success rate, the type of interposition graft was not significant [29]. ...
... Dermoid cysts trapped in the ectoderm sac next to normal folds or surface is a developmental disorder caused by the failure of the ectoderm to leave the neural tube [4].The most valid theory about the dermoid cysts was proposed by New and Erich that was the persistence of the germ layers at birth, along the embryonic fusion line in the deep tissues in the neck. The irregular growth and differentiation of these cells causes the appearance of dermoid cysts. ...
... Patients with lower eyelid laxity and those who have undergone previous eyelid surgery are more prone to complications, particularly ectropion. Patients with preexisting fat protrusion are not good candidates because when the musculature is weakened this condition can be aggravated (27). Other contraindications are patients with Sjogren's syndrome, other conditions associated with dry eyes (which can be worsened) and patients who have lower scleral show. ...
