For reconstruction of intraoral and lower face defects, it is important to use flaps that prevent reliable and pliable soft tissue and it is possible to use aesthetically most compatible with recipient site. In this study, the authors aimed to present their clinical experiences and results of lower face and intraoral defects reconstructions with submental artery island perforator flap without including the digastric muscle to have a thinner and useful flap.
Six patients with lower face and intraoral defects that were reconstructed using the submental artery island flap between November 2013 and February 2015 were retrospectively analyzed.

Conventional anastomosis with interrupted sutures can be time-consuming, can cause vessel narrowing, and can lead to thrombosis at the site of repair. The amount of suture material inside the lumen can impair the endothelium of the vessel, triggering thrombosis. In microsurgery, fibrin sealants have the potential beneficial effects of reducing anastomosis time and promoting accurate haemostasis at the anastomotic site.

Frontal sinus fractures constitute 5% to 15% of maxillofacial fractures, and isolated anterior table injuries account for 33% of frontal sinus fractures. The treatment strategy of frontal sinus fractures should be individualized according to the extent of the injury. Endoscope-assisted repair without any fixation method for the treatment of mildly and moderately displaced (1-5 mm) and closed isolated anterior table frontal sinus fractures is a good alternative technique for treatment.

The most decisive step during free tissue transfers and replantation surgery may be respected as microvascular anastomosis. The conventional end-to-side anastomosis technique with simple interrupted sutures is well established and proven to be successful. On the other hand, conventional technique can be time consuming and can cause vascular thrombosis, vessel narrowing, and foreign-body reactions.

The tarsal plate is the skeleton support system of the eyelids; therefore, repair during eyelid reconstruction is crucial. Many autogenous graft materials have been proposed for the tarsal reconstruction, such as nasal cartilage, palatal mucosa, upper eyelid tarsus, and auricular cartilage. Nail thickness and shape are similar to the tarsal plate with enough support for the eyelid.

Random-pattern skin flaps are used widely in plastic surgery, but necrosis resulting from ischaemia in the distal sections of the flap is a serious problem. Free oxygen radicals and the accumulation of increased neutrophil granulocytes play important roles in tissue injury and may lead to partial or complete necrosis of the flap. Amniotic membrane is a biomaterial used widely in clinical settings to prevent the infiltration and activation of leucocytes.

Constricted ear deformity was first described by Tanzer and classified it into 3 groups according to the degree of constriction. The group IIB deformity involves the helix, scapha, and antihelical fold. The height of the ear is sharply reduced, and the soft tissue envelope is not sufficient to close the cartilage framework after expansion and reshaping.

Nasal dermoid cysts are one of the most frequent congenital pathologic lesions of the nasal area. These lesions may have intracranial extensions without any clinical evidence, which can be explained by the pathophysiologic development of the lesion, thought to be related to a delay or pause during the separation period of the dura and skin during embryogenesis. This factor is independent from the location and size of the lesion and may lead surgeons to misdiagnoses or inadequate treatments.

Loading the eyelid with a gold weight is a popular technique for improving closure of the eyelid in patients with facial palsy. Despite it being both safe and simple, placement of the weight into a submuscular pocket is not always successful. Ulceration of the skin, and extrusion and visibility of the implant, are quite common short or long-term complications.

Researchers have made numerous attempts to shorten anastomosis duration since Jacobson first used the term microvascular surgery in 1960. However, none of these alternatives has its combination of facility, low cost, reliability, durability, and high success rate. This study aimed to shorten the anastomosis duration, especially in operations that require multiple anastomoses, and the authors performed experimental anastomoses with the fish-mouth technique using fibrin glue.

For years, various types of fascial flaps have been used in clinical practice; however, there are many unanswered questions regarding their basic physiology, anatomy and histopathologic changes occurring after transfer. Simple and reliable flap models are needed to investigate these questions, but very few of these flap models have been described in experimental animals to date. The purpose of this study was to describe a new reliable fascia flap model in the dog-the dorsal thoracic fascia flap.
