[Featured Article] The management of perioperative pain in craniosynostosis repair: a systematic literature review of the current practices and guidelines for the future

craniosynostosisCraniosynostosis is a condition characterized by a premature fusion of one or more cranial sutures. The surgical repair of craniosynostosis causes significant pain for the child. A key focus of craniosynostosis repair is developing effective strategies to manage perioperative pain. This study aimed to review perioperative pain control strategies for craniosynostosis repair systematically.

[Featured Article] Therapeutic effects of sialendoscopy for diagnosis and treatment of hyposalivation patients: a retrospective study

therapeuticHyposalivation is disease with multiple symptoms. This disease is hard to be diagnosed and to be treated, and there are not enough clinical protocols to cure the disease. In this study, we propose our own treatment protocols which aim not only to cure the disease but also to care for the disease-related symptoms.

Aims and scope

Maxillofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes clinical and basic research on the epidemiology, etiology, treatment, and prevention of congenital and acquired anomalies/defects involving the oral and maxillofacial regions. The journal focuses on investigating the causative factors of oral and maxillofacial anomalies/defects and the development of surgical methods and materials for morphological reconstruction or functional restoration. Maxillofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is the official journal of the Korean Association of Maxillofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. 

 

The journal welcomes high quality original articles, case/technical reports, collective or current reviews, editorials, and brief communications and covers the following main subjects:

• Congenital deformity of maxillofacial area
• Dental and maxillofacial reconstruction
• Tissue engineering related to maxillofacial reconstruction
• Cosmetic surgery and related material research of maxillofacial area
• Orthognathic surgery-related research
• Temporomandibular joint reconstruction
• Anatomic research of maxillofacial area
