LEARNING OBJECTIVES: After studying this article, the participant should be able to: 1. Describe the orbital anatomy and completely understand the important components relevant to surgical correction of enophthalmos, including oculo-orbito relations. 2. Understand the pathophysiology and predictive factors for posttraumatic enophthalmos and identify the challenges associated with correction of enophthalmos in the late setting. 3. Develop a surgical plan for late enophthalmos repair and...
CONCLUSIONS: These data quantifying 3D lip and cheek smile displacements improve the understanding of facial movement and may be applicable to future assessment/planning of facial reanimation surgeries.
Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) remains the leading cause of pregnancy-related deaths worldwide. Typically, bleeding is controlled by timely obstetric measures in parallel with resuscitation and treatment of coagulopathy. Early recognition of abnormal coagulation is crucial and haemostatic support should be considered simultaneously with other strategies as coagulopathies contribute to the progression to massive haemorrhage. However, there is lack of agreement on important topics in the current...
CONCLUSIONS: In this review, we demonstrate the high RoB of observational studies evaluating DIEP breast reconstruction, which may jeopardize the validity of findings. We recommend that authors consult the ROBINS-I tool not only when assessing observational studies for systematic reviews but also when designing or conducting these studies. In our study, we present additional considerations for each domain to provide researchers with guidance on assessing and conducting surgical observational...
