Lingual frenotomy in neonates: past, present, and future
Publication date: Available online 23 March 2019Source: British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial SurgeryAuthor(s): K. Ganesan, S. Girgis, S. MitchellAbstractDuring the last decade, increasing awareness of breastfeeding and its health benefits has not been reflected in the provision of lingual frenotomy in neonates with tongue-tie. This could be because of inconsistencies in our understanding of the importance and treatment of ankyloglossia. In this review, we discuss the current clinical guidance...

Publication date: Available online 22 March 2019Source: British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial SurgeryAuthor(s): Y. Shimada, Y. Kawasaki, Y. MaruokaAbstractBilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSRO) is commonly used in orthognathic surgery. Although abnormal sensation in areas that are innervated by the inferior alveolar nerve is a well-known neurological complication of mandibular osteotomy, facial palsy is rare postoperatively. We present a case of peripheral facial palsy that developed...

An Interdisciplinary Approach to Treatment of Adult Facial Arteriovenous Malformations: A Review of the Literature and A Single Institution's Experience With "Late" Surgical Resection and Aesthetic Reconstruction
Background: Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are high flow vascular anomalies that are difficult to manage given their high recurrence rate. At this time, the optimal treatment of AVMs involves embolization and surgical resection. However, few studies have examined patient outcomes after a delayed surgical resection approach. Methods: A retrospective chart review of all patients presenting to a single institution with vascular malformations from 2000 to 2016 was performed. Patients with...

Trends and Outcomes of Management of Mandibular Fractures
Introduction: the diversity of the causes of trauma produces different patterns of fractures depending on sociodemographics, lifestyle, industry, and outdoor activities. Mandibular fractures (MFs) are the commonest facial fractures. Reconstruction aims to restore the preinjury anatomy and function as much as possible. Aim of the study: to evaluate the demographics, etiologies, patterns, treatment modalities and outcomes of management of MFs in southern Egypt. Patients and Methods: records...

The Second Division of Trigeminal Nerve for Corneal Neurotization: A Novel One-Stage Technique in Combination With Facial Reanimation
Corneal neurotization represents an effective surgical strategy to restore corneal sensibility in patients affected by neurotrophic keratopathy. Corneal sensibility is essential in preserving structure and function of the eye. Loss of corneal sensibility can lead to a degenerative condition of the cornea known as neurotrophic keratopathy. Moreover, patients suffering from facial palsy show failure of full eyelid closure resulting in chronic corneal exposure and subsequent progressive damage. ...

Medication-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw: The Use of Leukocyte-Platelet-Rich Fibrin as an Adjunct in the Treatment
Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw are bone exposures in the maxillofacial region that does not heal after 8 weeks from the observation of a health care provider in patients with history of the intake of antiresorptive agents and no previous irradiation of the craniofacial region. Initially attributed only to the intake of bisphosphonates they have later been associated also with the intake of other classes of antiresorptive medications. This retrospective study analyzed records from patients...

This study aimed to assess the repair of surgically created bone defects filled with blood clot, autogenous bone, and calcium phosphate cement, by histomorphometric and immunohistochemical analyses. Ten adult male rabbits were used. Three bone defects were prepared with an 8-mm diameter trephine bur in the parietal region of each animal and filled with blood clot (Group BC), autogenous bone (Group AB), and calcium phosphate bone cement (Group CPC). The animals were euthanized at 40 and 90 postoperative...
