Gender and Diversity in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
- Eyelid and Periorbital Soft Tissue Traumaby Audrey C. Ko, Kellie R. Satterfield, Bobby S. Korn, Don O. Kikkawa on 01/08/2021 at 12:00 am
Facial trauma often involves injuries to the eyelid and periorbital region. Management of these injuries can be challenging due to the involvement of multiple complex anatomic structures that are in close proximity. Restoration of normal anatomic relationships of the eyelids and periocular structures is essential for optimum functional and aesthetic outcome after trauma. This review provides an overview of the current literature involving soft tissue trauma of the eyelid and periorbital tissue, and highlights key steps in patient evaluation and management with various types of injuries.
- The Gender Pay Gap in Oral Surgeryby Lauren Bourell on 14/07/2021 at 12:00 am
Men and women receive unequal pay for equal work, a gap of approximately 20% to 30% in income across most professions, including medicine and surgery. Inequality also exists in academic advancement, with far fewer women holding positions as full professors, program directors, or department heads. Women may be discouraged from pursuing surgery as a career, and they face unique challenges related to gender expectations in their role as surgeons. Steps to identifying gender bias and correcting the pay gap are important to ensure the growth and vitality of the specialty.
- Management of Human and Animal Bitesby James Murphy, Mohammed Qaisi on 09/06/2021 at 12:00 am
Dogs are the animal most frequently implicated in causing bite injuries to the human face. Dog bite injuries are most prevalent in younger patients. Pasteurella species are commensals of the oral microbiome of dogs and cats and are frequently implicated in infections resulting from dog and cat bite injuries. HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C need to be considered in bites inflicted by humans. All animal bite wounds should be washed out. Most animal bite injuries can be managed in an outpatient setting. Given the cosmetically sensitive nature of the face, bite wounds generally merit suturing, even in delayed presentations.
- Management of Salivary Gland Injuryby Raymond P. Shupak, Fayette C. Williams, Roderick Y. Kim on 09/06/2021 at 12:00 am
Although a rare sequala of soft tissue injury, salivary gland trauma may result in significant morbidity. Salivary gland injury can involve the major as well as the minor glands. Because of the proximity of adjacent vital structures, a thorough history and physical examination are mandatory during patient evaluation. Trauma to the major salivary glands may involve the parenchyma, duct, or neural injury. Treatment requires adherence to primary principles of soft tissue management. Ductal and neural injury should be repaired primarily. Sialocele and fistula are potential complications of repaired and unrepaired salivary gland injury.
- Management of Ear Traumaby Amir Nojoumi, Brian M. Woo on 09/06/2021 at 12:00 am
Facial trauma remains a common reason for visits to the emergency department or urgent care facility. The ear remains susceptible to trauma given its delicate anatomy and position in the maxillofacial region. Understanding the anatomy and recognizing the circumstances regarding the mechanism of injury help dictate treatment. The goals of treatment should remain to restore the physiologic form and function of the ear. Middle ear injuries should also be addressed during the process. Although primary repair remains feasible in most cases, there are instances when delayed and staged reconstruction is necessary to achieve successful results.
- Soft Tissue Traumaby Ashley Houle, Michael R. Markiewicz, Nicholas Callahan on 09/06/2021 at 12:00 am
Repair of soft tissue trauma to the lips requires careful attention to both function and esthetics. This article outlines basic lip anatomy, goals in managing lip injury, and appropriate workup and ultimate treatment of various types of trauma to the lips.
- Management of Traumatic Trigeminal and Facial Nerve Injuriesby Michael R. Markiewicz, Nicholas Callahan, Michael Miloro on 09/06/2021 at 12:00 am
In the area of craniomaxillofacial trauma, neurosensory disturbances are encountered commonly, especially with regard to the trigeminal and facial nerve systems. This article reviews the specific microanatomy of both cranial nerves V and VII, and evaluates contemporary neurosensory testing, current imaging modalities, and available nerve injury classification systems. In addition, the article proposes treatment paradigms for management of trigeminal and facial nerve injuries, specifically with regard to the craniomaxillofacial trauma setting.
- Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the Professional Career of Women in OMSby Rachel A. Bishop, Jennifer E. Woerner, Franci Stavropoulos on 05/06/2021 at 12:00 am
The COVID-19 pandemic altered all facets of society on a fundamental level, impacting work, mental health, and family life. Female surgeons experienced gender inequity and bias prior to COVID, therefore, women in OMS were affected disproportionately by the repercussions of the pandemic. Well-established inequalities are intensified during times of crisis. The potential success of a female academic surgeon, during the pandemic, is influenced by: lack of adequate and proper fitting personal protective equipment (PPE); shifting to virtual only educational formats; decreasing research publications; and bearing the burden of domestic responsibilities. This article will enlighten readers regarding the preexisting inequalities in the OMS specialty, how the COVID pandemic exacerbated these ubiquitous issues, and how the specialty should accommodate for these inequities moving forward.
- Management of Soft Tissue Traumaby Rui P. Fernandes on 04/06/2021 at 12:00 am
Trauma management remains one of the cornerstones of the specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Often, the emphasis tends to be on the management of the bony fractures, whereas the management of soft tissue injuries arguably does not receive the same attention. In this issue, we have sought to rectify this neglect. Dr Dyalram has brought together a group of craniomaxillofacial experts to share their approaches toward the management of this important area in craniofacial trauma.
- Management of Laryngeal Traumaby Nadir Elias, James Thomas, Allen Cheng on 04/06/2021 at 12:00 am
The larynx is a complex anatomic structure and a properly functioning larynx is essential for breathing, voice, and swallowing. Laryngeal trauma is often associated with other injuries, including intracranial injuries, penetrating neck injuries, cervical spine fractures, and facial fractures. Although uncommon, laryngotracheal injuries may lead to life-threatening airway emergencies. Because laryngeal injuries are rare, even surgeons with a great deal of experience in managing maxillofacial trauma have limited exposure to management of laryngeal and tracheal injury. This article reviews a protocol for the evaluation, management, and treatment of these injuries in the trauma patient.
- Management of Scalp Injuriesby Joshua Yoon, Joseph S. Puthumana, Arthur J. Nam on 03/06/2021 at 12:00 am
Soft tissue wounds in the scalp are a common occurrence after trauma or resection of a malignancy. The reconstructive surgeon should strive to use the simplest reconstructive technique while optimizing aesthetic outcomes. In general, large defects with infection, previous irradiation (or require postoperative radiation), or with calvarial defects usually require reconstruction with vascularized tissue (ie, microvascular free tissue transfer). Smaller defects greater than 3 cm that are not amenable to primary closure can be treated with local flap reconstruction. In all cases, the reconstruction method will need be tailored to the patient’s health status, desires, and aesthetic considerations.
- Management of Nasal Traumaby John M. Nathan, Kyle S. Ettinger on 01/06/2021 at 12:00 am
Facial trauma can have long-lasting physical and mental consequences. Trauma to the nose is commonly seen in the emergency department. Nasal lacerations account for 7% of all facial lacerations. Thorough examination and documentation including photographs is important for documentation and creating a reconstruction plan. Underlying damage to cartilage or bone must be reconstructed initially or in a delayed fashion to recreate the pretrauma anatomy and function. There are several options for soft tissue nasal reconstruction, including local flaps, skin grafts, pedicle flaps, and free flaps. At present there is no standard of care for postoperative facial trauma wound care.
