Complex forehead defects: a novel reconstructive technique and review of available methods.
Summary of "Complex forehead defects: a novel reconstructive technique and review of available methods."
Complex forehead defects may result from excision of tumors or trauma. The reconstructive challenge is determined by the extent of tissue loss, the quality of the remaining tissue, possibly comprised vascular supply to the affected region, and special considerations (eg, exposed bone or injury to underlying structures). This paper describes a novel reconstructive approach to correct a complex forehead defect with exposed bone and discusses the armamentarium of reconstructive options for such cases.

Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.
Drug Utilization Review
Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.
