Full Abstract: Commenting on Dr. Jaime Planas' article, Further Experience with Rupture of the Orbicularis Oris in Trumpet Players, (Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery: Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons 81, no. 6 (June 1988): 975-81), Dr. Sullivan suggests that Dr. Planas make a mucosal side incision in the repair of a ruptured orbicularis oris in the future to avoid scaring. Planas agreed, and in fact did so on the same patient in a second operation to shorten the orbicularis oris after the initial rupture and subsequent first repair surgery.
