Summary of "Pedicled Buccal Fat Flap: An Underutilized Source of Vascularized Periorbital Volume."

Pedicled buccal fat flaps have demonstrated great utility for oral reconstructions. We present a retrospective case description detailing the utility of the buccal fat pad (BFP) as an anterior maxillary flap for midfacial and lower eyelid volumization and reconstruction. A 64-year-old healthy female had undergone bilateral lower blepharoplasty with silicone tear tough implantation, complicated by infection of the right tear trough implant. Delayed implant removal resulted in chronic infection and inflammation producing significant right lower eyelid retraction, and full-thickness scarring to the orbital rim. Reconstruction was performed, featuring the creation of a midfacial subperiosteal pocket and to access the BFP, which was mobilized and secured to the inferior orbital rim. Long-term follow-up confirms ongoing viability of the surgical intervention. Herein, the BFP is shown to be a source of vascularized volume in reconstructive periorbital surgery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Endonucleases that remove 5' DNA sequences from a DNA structure called a DNA flap. The DNA flap structure occurs in double-stranded DNA containing a single-stranded break where the 5' portion of the downstream strand is too long and overlaps the 3' end of the upstream strand. Flap endonucleases cleave the downstream strand of the overlap flap structure precisely after the first base-paired nucleotide, creating a ligatable nick.

A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.

A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.

The volume of BLOOD passing through the HEART per unit of time. It is usually expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with STROKE VOLUME (volume per beat).

Administration of a soluble dosage form between the cheek and gingiva. It may involve direct application of a drug onto the buccal mucosa, as by painting or spraying.
