The current literature, including meta-analyses and systematic reviews incorporating data from 54 separate studies, suggests that prophylactic antibiotics be used conservatively in the setting of mandibular trauma.
TRIO Best Practices
Laryngeal conservation surgery includes open and endoscopic approaches that address select malignant laryngeal lesions to achieve local control while preserving function.
Although the number of randomized control trials is lacking, the current literature suggests mucosal flap preservation may improve outcomes following endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy.
Resectable stage IVA/IVB tumors should be treated with surgery followed by chemoradiation, with consideration for dabrafenib/trametinib biotherapy for BRAFV600E-mutated tumors.
The primary advantage of laryngeal reinnervation is prevention of denervation atrophy, which limits the long-term voice outcomes of static procedures. Recovery or maintenance of muscle tone is expected to lead to more symmetric vibratory masses, symmetric mucosal wave propagation, and improved voice quality.
Platelet-rich plasma has a therapeutic role in hair restoration, with most trials examined having a low risk of bias.
Middle cranial fossa and transmastoid approaches to superior semicircular canal dehiscence repair are effective approaches that result in acceptable rates of favorable hearing outcomes for patients.
Functional rhinoplasty is an umbrella term used to describe the various surgical techniques that alter the external nasal structure with the goal of improving nasal breathing. Numerous techniques have been described and shown to be successful.
