81. Surgical treatment of a rare case of bilateral ptosis due to localized ocular amyloidosis Full Text available with Trip Pro

Surgical treatment of a rare case of bilateral ptosis due to localized ocular amyloidosis We describe a rare case of a 31-year old woman with bilateral ptosis due to localized amyloidosis. She referred a nine-year history of ptosis and surgical treatment with frontalis suspension three years previously. Following complete ophthalmological examination and evaluation of the ptosis we carried out tarsal and fornix biopsy, which revealed accumulation of a weakly eosinophilic amyloid positive (...) , the corrective procedure for ptosis was still effective. Surgical treatment of ptosis is very complex and requires precise indications. Appropriate management depends on the etiopathogenesis, accurate diagnosis, and clinical findings.

87. Computation of breast ptosis from 3D surface scans of the female torso Full Text available with Trip Pro

Computation of breast ptosis from 3D surface scans of the female torso Stereophotography is now finding a niche in clinical breast surgery, and several methods for quantitatively measuring breast morphology from 3D surface images have been developed. Breast ptosis (sagging of the breast), which refers to the extent by which the nipple is lower than the inframammary fold (the contour along which the inferior part of the breast attaches to the chest wall), is an important morphological parameter (...) that is frequently used for assessing the outcome of breast surgery. This study presents a novel algorithm that utilizes three-dimensional (3D) features such as surface curvature and orientation for the assessment of breast ptosis from 3D scans of the female torso. The performance of the computational approach proposed was compared against the consensus of manual ptosis ratings by nine plastic surgeons, and that of current 2D photogrammetric methods. Compared to the 2D methods, the average accuracy for 3D

88. SIX2 haploinsufficiency causes conductive hearing loss with ptosis in humans Full Text available with Trip Pro

SIX2 haploinsufficiency causes conductive hearing loss with ptosis in humans The ossicles represent one of the most fundamental morphological features in evolutionary biology of the mammalians. The mobile ossicular morphology abnormalities result in the severe conductive hearing loss. Development and patterning of the middle ear malformation depend on genetic and environmental causes. However, the genetic basis for the risk of congenital ossicle malformation is poorly understood. We show here (...) nine affected individuals in a Chinese pedigree who had bilateral conductive hearing loss with ptosis. We performed whole-genome sequencing and array comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) analysis on DNA samples from the Chinese pedigree. We confirmed the presence of a novel 60 kb heterozygous deletion in size, encompassing SIX2 in our family. Mutation screening in 169 sporadic cases with external ear and middle ear malformations identified no pathogenic variant or polymorphism. We suggest SIX2

91. A Novel Approach to Submandibular Gland Ptosis: Creation of a Platysma Muscle and Hyoid Bone Cradle Full Text available with Trip Pro

A Novel Approach to Submandibular Gland Ptosis: Creation of a Platysma Muscle and Hyoid Bone Cradle Submandibular gland ptosis is a common impediment to obtaining superior surgical aesthetic results in neck lift surgery. Techniques for suspending the submandibular gland have been proposed, but these procedures have the drawbacks of disturbing the floor of the mouth mucosa and periosteum. We present an approach of submandibular gland suspension for the treatment of gland ptosis by employing (...) a platysma and hyoid bone fascia cradle. Our technique was performed on cadaveric models. The platysma muscle and hyoid bone cradle for submandibular gland ptosis was created on the left side of the neck in two cadavers. A submental incision with sharp dissection was performed to raise a supraplatysmal flap. A subplatysmal plane was developed until the submandibular gland was identified. Sutures were used to pexy the platysma to the hyoid bone periosteum and deep cervical fascia, tightening the overlying

Oculomotor Nerve Palsy Presented with Isolated Unilateral Ptosis and Minimal Upgaze Palsy This case with unilateral complete blepharoptosis and slight limitation of upgaze as ocular findings due to midbrain infarction represents an unusual form of intra-axial oculomotor nerve involvement. A 65-year-old man was admitted with acute unilateral ptosis of the left eyelid and gait ataxia. He had chronic hypertension in the medical history. The neurologic examination revealed that he had a complete (...) ptosis of the left eyelid, slight limitation of elevation in the left eye, bilateral dysmetria, and gait ataxia. Magnetic resonance imaging showed acute infarction in the central part of midbrain tegmentum. Previous models for arrangement of oculomotor fascicle in the midbrain suggest that a lesion involving the most caudal fibres for levator palpebrae and superior rectus without affecting other extraocular muscles and pupillomotor fibres is the most likely aetiology.
