- ZVZh Vopr Neirokhir Im N N Burdenko 2018; 82(3):103-111
- CONCLUSIONS: Based on the review, we suggest a diagnostic algorithm for nasal liquorrhea. However, the evidence presented in this review is unfortunately not very reliable, which indicates the existing need for more accurate studies.

Although nasal septal abscess (NSA) was formerly common, it has become rare since the development of antibiotics. NSA, if left untreated, can lead to intracranial complications such as meningitis and eventually result in saddle-nose deformity. NSA often occurs after injury, and indigenous skin bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus are frequently detected. We treated a patient who had injured the upper alveolus in a fall on the stairs and developed NSA two weeks later. Anaerobic bacteria, including Veillonella parvula and Peptostreptococcus sp., were detected. Symptoms were relieved by needle and incisional drainage. Our patient represents a very rare case of NSA in terms of the cause of onset and the detected bacteria. Early drainage can result in good outcomes.

We here report the case of a 45 year old patient, with no previous history of head injury, presenting with isolated intermittent headache which had evolved since the young age. Clinical examination was normal. Cerebral CT scan showed osteolytic expansive hypodense lesion of the sphenoidal sinus extending inferiorly into the infratemporal fossa and superiorly into the temporal fossa (A). This mass wasn't contrast enhanced. A mucocele was suspected. MRI was performed which showed that the mass had the same enhancement as the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and was in continuity with the temporal meninx, without modification in the cerebral parenchyma (B, C). The diagnosis of arachnoid cyst was retained. Given the extension of the cyst and the absence of nerve paralysis, therapeutic abstention as well as clinical and radiological monitoring were performed. Cystic lesions expanding from the sphenoid sinus are relatively rare and can cause non-specific symptoms. Even though these lesions are very rare they should be suspected. Quite often, diagnosis can be determined by CT scan data associated with MRI with diffusion-weighted sequence data, allowing the differential diagnosis of other injuries, in particular mucocele.
- Using three-dimensional average facial meshes to determine nasolabial soft tissue deformity in adult UCLP patients. [Journal Article]
- SSurgeon 2018 Jun 04
- CONCLUSIONS: Many of the nasolabial characteristics reported to be present in children following primary UCLP repair continue into adulthood. The detrimental soft tissue effects of orthognathic surgery for UCLP patients may be different to non-cleft individuals; and as such the site and severity of the residual deformity should be assessed prior to surgery.
- The use of bone dust to correct the open roof deformity in rhinoplasty. [Journal Article]

- CONCLUSIONS: The presented four-step surgical concept was useful for rhinoplasty surgeons to successfully manage open roof deformity in selected patients.
- Use of Roof-Shaped Costochondral Cartilage for Correction of Saddle Nose Deformity. [Journal Article]
- PRPlast Reconstr Surg 2018 Mar 26
- CONCLUSIONS: Surgical correction of a saddle-shaped nose should be an acceptable and uncomplicated technique, and the cosmetic result should be totally acceptable. There are many management options for a saddle-shaped nose. Use of roof grafts (shrunk gull wing grafts) with neo-septal and strut grafts enables simulation of the internal nasal valve and results in a natural nasal position.

- The effect of saddle nose width and cutout on saddle pressure distribution and perceived discomfort in women during ergometer cycling. [Journal Article]

The objectives were 1) to design and produce two novel unpadded bicycle saddles with a wide/medium width and partial nose cutout; 2) to investigate the responses on pressure distribution and perceived discomfort in female cyclists. For comparison, a standard saddle was also tested. Nineteen female cyclists pedaled on an ergometer cycle for 20 min with each saddle in a counterbalanced order. A pressure mat measured saddle interface pressure. Discomfort ratings were collected using a visual analogue scale. Total mean saddle pressure remained similar across saddles. The wide saddle increased anterior and decreased posterior mean saddle pressure as compared with the standard (p < .002) and the medium saddle (p < .001). Significantly increased ischial tuberosity discomfort was found for the novel saddles (p < .001), while crotch discomfort was not significantly different between saddles. The medium width saddle appeared to be the best compromise since increased crotch discomfort was avoided and saddle pressures were redistributed. Such design may be suggested as an alternative to traditional saddles for women reporting discomfort in the perineal region.
