Malformation and plastic surgery in childhood.

Siegert R, Magritz R - GMS Curr Top Otorhinolaryngol Head Neck Surg (2014)

Bottom Line: Malformations of the head and neck show a huge variety of clinical symptoms with functional and esthetic consequences.These must consider eating, speech, mimic expression, hearing and "esthetics" or at least "normality".A survey of the most common head and neck malformations and their treatment options are presented here.

ABSTRACT
Malformations of the head and neck show a huge variety of clinical symptoms with functional and esthetic consequences. Often times its rehabilitation requires multi-staged and multi-disciplinary procedures and concepts. These must consider eating, speech, mimic expression, hearing and "esthetics" or at least "normality". A survey of the most common head and neck malformations and their treatment options are presented here.

Mentions: From about the age of two partially implantable hearing aids are available. While the systems with open implants (BAHA, Ponto) are usually implanted not before preschool, we have developed a closed system (Sophono) that is used clinically since 2006 and has now been implanted in over 2,500 patients worldwide [33]. With the new minimally invasive implantation technique [36], the system can be used in virtually any bone thickness and therefore at any age. We have previously used it in children from the age of two [35]. The principle is that a titanium-welded double magnet is implanted into or onto the bone, which fixes a specific, externally worn bone conduction hearing aid on the scalp (Figure 16 (Fig. 16)). With this transcutaneous coupling all biological and psychological problems of open implants in percutaneous systems can be bypassed.
