Surgical Correction of Facial Deformity
A combination of procedures is performed to repair the ligaments and tendons that support the arch. Bone cuts are often made to help restore the arch. Proper correction of flatfoot deformity can often help to improve pain and walking ability.
The features and treatment of acromegaly are described and emphasis placed on the apparent failure of the bone deformities to regress. A method of one stage correction of such residual facial deformity is described and illustrated in a patient with deformities of the mandible, frontal, zygomatic and nasal bones, nine years after hypophysectomy.
