Comparison of scar outcomes of alar flare region using absorbable and non-absorbable sutures: a single-blind study
Mehmet Emrah Ceylan, Hasan Hüseyin Balıkçı

  • During septorhinoplasty, alar base interventions are performed frequently.

  • One of the major factors affecting the scar outcome is the suture material used.

  • Absorbable sutures were reported to provide favorable cosmetic outcomes on skin wounds.

  • There is no study investigating scar outcomes of alar base using different sutures.

  • Vicryl rapid has worse scar outcomes on alar base compared to Polyproplyene.

Surgical outcomes between two endoscopic approaches for maxillary cysts
Zhengcai Lou

  • The headaches were the most common symptom of Maxillary Sinus (MS) Retention Cysts (RCs).

  • 70.1% of RCs within MS were in the inferior wall.

  • IMA combined with basal mucosa electrocoagulation and MMA alone provided similar symptomatic relief.

  • IMA had shorter operation times and lower postoperative recurrence rates of RCs.

  • There were no significant pairwise correlations between closure of the opening and symptomatic failure or cyst recurrence.
