Each facial fat compartment exhibits septal boundaries, a regional perforator blood supply, and a specific tendency toward deflation in aging. Recognition of compartment anatomy is one of the keys to safe subcutaneous dissection of the cheek, as facial nerve branches are often superficially positioned at transition points between compartments. Recognition of compartment-specific deflation provides a guideline for volume restoration in facial rejuvenation.

Thieme; 2019. doi:10.1055/b-006-160161Comment: “Surgical Principles” provides a step-by-step overview of the treatment of the ophthalmic plastic surgery patient, from preoperative patient evaluation through postoperative care. The fundamental principles and techniques essential to success in ophthalmic plastic surgery are similar to those that underlie other branches of surgery. Careful attention to detail, meticulous surgical technique, and an utmost respect for the functional requirement of the eye are of paramount importance. A surgeon who is well versed in fundamental surgical principles and techniques will avoid unnecessary complications and the requirement for secondary procedures.
- CockpitComment: Most metacarpal fractures can be adequately identified with radiographs in two planes. Further diagnostic imaging with high-resolution CT is only necessary for dislocated fractures of the bases and heads of the metacarpals. Functionally, the exact position of metacarpals II–V together with the transverse palmar arch is a prerequisite for undisturbed, convergent movement of the fingers, while the integrity of the trapeziometacarpal joint is essential for unrestricted abduction and opposition of the thumb. This makes detection of subtle displacements of fragments in the metacarpus especially important.
