Cantú syndrome (CS) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder caused by a heterozygous pathogenic variant in the ABCC9 or KCNJ8 gene. The disorder is characterized by congenital generalized hypertrichosis, coarse acromegaloid facial features (broad nasal bridge, epicanthal folds, wide mouth, macroglossia), skeletal abnormalities (calvarial thickening, metaphyseal flares, coxa valga, scoliosis), tortuous vasculature (meningeal arteriovenous malformations), and cardiac abnormalities (patent ductus arteriosus, pericardial effusion)...

Basal cell nevus syndrome (BCNS) is a rare genetic disorder that can be caused by mutation of multiple genes, including PTCH1 , PTCH2 , and SUFU , in an autosomal dominant manner. The symptoms include some craniofacial features such as keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOTs), macrocephaly, and cleft lip and/or palate. Although comprehensive orthodontic treatment is frequently required for some of these craniofacial deformities, there are few reports that show the outcomes of comprehensive orthodontic treatment...

OBJECTIVE: Preference-sensitive surgical decisions merit shared decision-making, as decision engagement can reduce decisional conflict and regret. Elective cleft-related procedures are often preference sensitive, and therefore, we sought to better understand decision-making in this population. DESIGN: Semistructured interviews were conducted to elicit qualitative data. A hierarchical codebook was developed through an iterative process in preparation for thematic analysis...

In rare instances, cleft lip and palate occur in association with synechia , intraoral fibrous bands connecting the maxilla and mandible. The main concern in synechia is a restricted mouth opening that leads to airway and feeding problems. This study reports our experience in the treatment of 3 cases and includes a review of the literature. Three patients with intraoral fibrous bands received treatment and follow-ups in our center. Division of the bands and reconstruction of the lip and palate were successfully performed...

OBJECTIVE: The pathogenesis of nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (NSCL ± P) and nonsyndromic cleft palate only (NSCP) may be associated with genetic factors. Although some predisposing genes/loci have been reported, their attributable risk is too small to be clinically meaningful. To clarify the genetic causes and mechanisms of NSCL±P or NSCP, we conducted mutation analysis of target genes using a next-generation sequencing (NGS) approach. METHODS: The target genes, IRF6, WNT5A, WNT9B, TP63, MSX1, TFAP2A, PAX9, DLX3, DLX4, and MN1, were selected based on previous reports of potential associations with the development of NSCL±P or NSCP from genome-wide association studies and candidate gene analyses...

OBJECTIVE: Deficiencies of the upper lip vermilion occur with some frequency following repair of unilateral and bilateral clefts of the lip and can compromise the aesthetic outcome. The presence of dense scar tissue within the lip at the cleft site as well as intrinsic vermillion deficiencies can make long-lasting correction of this deformity challenging. We describe a technique to address vermillion deficiencies after cleft lip repair. DESIGN: A novel lip augmentation technique for correction of residual vermilion deficiencies after unilateral and bilateral cleft lip repair is presented...

In the United States, plastic surgery continues to be one of the most competitive fields to match into for medical graduates. However, the process is even more difficult for international medical graduates (IMGs) mostly due to their unknown academic backgrounds and unfamiliarity with US health-care system. While many IMGs pursue of research to publish articles in peer-reviewed journals and obtain letters of recommendations as a means to prove one's potential, networking with well-known plastic surgeons in US plastic surgery programs via national meetings is of utmost importance...
