Craniofacial reconstruction surgery involves a surgical approach to the craniofacial region to repair cranial vault and facial deformities. The surgery is extensive, often requiring wide scalp dissections and multiple osteotomies and has been associated with significant morbidity. Some of the most severe and commonly seen problems are associated with the rate and extent of blood loss. Efforts to minimize surgical bleeding may translate to reduced transfusion requirements and...
3D printing is a technology that allows for physical creation of a 3D model (usually made of plastic) based on computer generated 3D images from CT scans. The 3D images of craniofacial skeleton using computer software are routinely generated and, in turn, these 3D images can be used to create a plastic 3D model using a 3D printer. Unstable or comminuted facial fractures need to be reduced and rigidly fixated using titanium plates and screws. Bending and shaping of the plates i...
This study will evaluate the use of free autologous dermal fat grafting to treat complex craniofacial wounds that have failed standard treatment and to understand how these grafts help the wounds heal. Half of the patients in this study will be randomly chosen to have free autologous dermal fat grafting (in addition to any other care required, such as antibiotics or surgery to clean the wound) to treat their complex craniofacial wounds. The other half of patients will receive s...
This study will be conducted on patients with monostotic unilateral craniofacial fibrous dysplasia affecting zone I (fronto-orbital, zygomatic, and upper maxillary regions). Computer guided shaving will be performed for all the patients, and the accuracy of this procedure will be assessed.
Surgical procedures for the correction of craniofacial deformities result in unavoidable and significant blood loss in small children and infants. Patients may experience blood losses that exceed one to two blood volumes. In an effort to reduce our transfusion requirements, we have introduced tranexamic acid into our practice. However, the benefit of tranexamic acid in pediatric craniofacial surgery has not yet been reported. We hypothesize that the intraoperative use of tranex...
Children often experience pain and anxiety during minor medical procedures. In addition to pain medication, distraction may help children cope with the pain. This may include interacting with books, TV, toys or videogames. Virtual Reality (VR) is an immersive experience using sight, sound, and position sense. Using VR may enhance distraction during the painful procedure and may reduce attention to pain. This study will randomize children (6 - 16 years old) to receive Virtual ...
Craniofacial reconstruction procedures are undertaken in young children to improve appearance, prevent functional disturbances, and enhance psychosocial development. These procedures involve wide scalp dissections and multiple osteotomies and have been associated with significant morbidity. The most commonly seen perioperative complications are associated with the rate and extent of blood loss. This prospective observational registry will be a research tool which will provid...
This study will evaluate the use of free autologous dermal fat grafting to treat complex craniofacial wounds that have failed standard treatment and to understand how well these grafts work to repair wounds long term. Patients who have undergone free autologous dermal fat grafting to treat complex craniofacial wounds 2-30 years ago will have photographs and small biopsies taken of the area that was grafted.
This is a prospective study that will examine psychosocial improvements among CF adolescents and caregivers going through the Stress Management and Resiliency Training - Relaxation Response Resiliency Program (SMART-3RP).
Tranexamic acid (TXA), as an antifibrinolytic agent, has shown a tremendous interest in surgery by reducing blood loss ; but only few articles have been reported in the plastic surgery scope. The aim of this study was to investigate whether oral administration of TXA reduces surgical drainage in primary breast augmentation using implants.
The purpose of this research project is to ascertain the effectiveness of plastic head covering in prevention of hypothermia. Hypothermia is defined by body temperature
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with biliary stent placement is crucial for palliative treatment in patients with malignant bile duct obstruction who cannot perform surgery due to advanced diseases or associated comorbidities. Stent patency is challenge in ERCP. Self expanding metallic stents (SEMS) have a longer duration of patency and fewer of recurrence occlusion of stent when compared with plastic stent (PS). However, the cost of MS is more expensive t...
To assess if a virtual out patient clinic via a telephone review was an acceptable and safe alternative to a clinic attendance for a broad range of general surgical patients discharged following a hospital admission.
This study investigates a possible fibrinolytic effect of sequential compression devices (SCDs). These devices have been used for decades to reduce risk of deep venous thrombosis (DVT). However, a randomized study in plastic surgery outpatients has not been done. This study is undertaken to remedy that deficiency in our knowledge base.
This study will use a technique called blink reflex to study and compare how the brain controls muscle movement in patients with craniofacial dystonia, their first-degree relatives, and healthy, normal volunteers. People with dystonia have sustained muscle contractions that cause twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal postures. In focal dystonia, this happens in one area of the body, such as the hand, neck, or face. Three groups of people may be eligible for this study:...
The research design is a randomized prospective clinical trial comparing Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided drainage of WON using FCSEMS and plastic stents. The trial will be conducted at the Florida Hospital Center for Interventional Endoscopy, Orlando, Florida.
Background: Some head and facial abnormalities are rare and present at birth. Others are more common, and may not show up until puberty. These conditions have different causes and characteristics. Researchers want to learn more about these conditions by comparing people with face, head, and neck abnormalities to family members and to healthy volunteers without such conditions. Objectives: To learn more about abnormal development of the face, head, and neck. To de...
Although first reports of the clinical use of adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRC) suggest that this approach may be feasible and effective for soft tissue augmentation, there is a lack of randomized, controlled clinical trials in the literature. Hence, this study aimed to investigate whether a novel protocol for isolation of ADRC and their use in combination with fat tissue improve the long-term retention of the grafts in paediatric patients with craniofacial microsomia.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the complication of the puncture related complication in AVG (arteriovenous graft) such as pseudoaneurysm and hematoma, and the dialysis adequacy using plastic cannula versus metal needle in hemodialysis patients
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common form of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). Weight reduction has always been advocated in patients with OSA who are overweight and may lead to improvement in the severity of OSA. Previous study reported a randomized controlled trial of dietician-led lifestyle modification program (LMP) in 104 patients and found that LMP group had significantly more weight loss and reduced OSA severity, and the response was sustained after 8 months. ...
Keratinized gingiva around dental implants are necessary to achieve esthetic appearance in the anterior teeth, also it is more resistant to abrasion, recession, less in plaque accumulation and inflammation, and easy to manipulate during stage two surgery and impression making in prosthetic stage. For the aforementioned reasons over year's authors have developed many techniques to increase the amount of keratinized gingiva around the dental implants such techniques are apically ...
The Mayo Clinic Foregut Surgery Report Card Questionnaire has been created in order to have a consistent evaluation tool for patients undergoing foregut surgery in order to standardize and validate outcome measures.
The primary objective of this clinical trial is to assess the influence of orthognathic surgery on facial soft tissue, such as changes (volume, linear, angular) of facial hard and soft tissue, in three dimensions, so enabling the setup of 3D normative value tables.
Currently, routine preoperative biliary drainage (PBD) was not recommended. However, PBD is still necessary in case of patients with cholangitis or very high level of bilirubin or patients who are expected to receive delayed surgery. The aim of this clinical trial is to demonstrate non-inferiority of uncovered self-expandable metal stent to plastic stent for PBD by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in patients with periampullary cancer undergoing curative intent ...
This study looks in to the rate of biliary stent dysfunction for plastic and metallic stents in patients who need biliary drainage due to a tumor in pancreas before possible pancreaticoduodenectomy. Complications related to the biliary decompression, and possible post-surgical complications in all patients are also recorded. This trial aims to confirm whether metallic biliary stents really are superior to plastic stents as some previous studies suggest. Specific patient groups...
