REVIEW
J A Higginson, A C Bartram, R J Banks, D J W Keith
Unilateral condylar hyperplasia is a rare disease that causes facial asymmetry as a result of excessive vertical or horizontal growth, or both, of the mandibular condyle. Investigation should address the patient's concerns, and establish whether the disease is active with the use of single positron emission tomography (PET). Proportional reduction of the condyle arrests active disease and restores mandibular height, and any residual asymmetry can be corrected according to conventional orthognathic principles...

The aims of this study were to evaluate the efficacy of partial parotidectomy using retrograde dissection of the marginal mandibular branch of the facial nerve for benign tumours of the parotid gland and to establish the indications for its use. We examined 106 consecutive patients with previously untreated benign tumours in the lower portion of the parotid gland who were treated by parotidectomy. The first group (anterograde group, n=52) consisted of those who had standard anterograde parotidectomy. The remaining patients, who underwent retrograde parotidectomy, were further divided into two groups: those in whom the upper edge of the tumour was located below the mastoid tip (below mastoid group, n=46) or those in whom it was above the mastoid tip (above mastoid group, n=8)...

Most minimally invasive treatments for dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) are empirical, and aimed at the painful trigger points with the purpose of preventing muscular spasm and restoring normal function. In this prospective study I investigated whether the choice of site of injection of hypertonic dextrose affected the benefits of treatment of internal derangement and pain. I studied 72 patients with pain and clicking as a result of dysfunction of the TMJ. Patients were divided into four groups with four separate sites for intra-articular injection...

We retrospectively studied 136 patients who had free flap reconstruction for cancer of the head and neck at a single centre (2008-2015) to evaluate complications, assess factors associated with them, and analyse their impact on outcome. Preoperative and perioperative data, and surgical and medical complications were recorded, and the impact of the complications on duration of hospital stay and survival were assessed. A total of 86 (63%) patients had complications. Compared with those who did not, they had a higher rate of alcohol abuse (21/86, compared with 5/50, p=0...

We describe a case of multiple Zargar grade IIA ulcerations of the oral mucosa with no systemic toxicity in a patient after ingestion of an organophosphate. Serial debridement, control of superadded infections, and active physiotherapy were the mainstay of the treatment plan. We know of no other reported cases of poisoning by organophosphates that caused burns of the oral mucosa and no systemic toxicity.

Metastatic tumours to the jaw bones are rare, and usually develop during the final stages of cancer. Some, such as those of lung, breast, and kidney, are more likely to metastasise to the jaw. We have therefore analysed the clinical and epidemiological characteristics of patients with metastatic tumours. We retrieved the notes of 4 478 patients with metastatic tumours to the jawbones who were treated in the Clinical Hospital Centre Dubrava in Zagreb, Croatia, during the 15 years 2002-17 and made a retrospective analysis of patients' age, sex, site of primary tumour, site and clinical presentation of the metastases, time interval since diagnosis of the primary tumour and oral metastases, and time interval from diagnosis of oral metastases to death...

Atherosclerosis is a systemic condition that is responsible for many diseases, and becomes a problem in cases where plaques form at several sites. The formation of a thrombotic embolus may jeopardise vascular operations, including microvascular anastomoses in replantation procedures or free tissue transfers. A mobile imaging tool for the detection of thrombosis preoperatively or intraoperatively would be valuable. An intimal injury, simulating removal of atherosclerotic plaques, was made microsurgically in 60 rat aortas, and results were analysed macroscopically, histologically, and with intraoperative indocyanine green (ICG) videoangiography immediately postoperatively...

Our aim was to evaluate the efficacy of high condylectomy combined with orthodontic treatment for active unilateral condylar hyperplasia in 25 affected patients, by an analysis of the maxillary and mandibular changes on cone-beam computed tomography (CT). High condylectomy was the sole operative treatment. Variables that reflected the canting of the occlusal plane, the height of the maxillary complex, the buccolingual angulation of the maxillary first molar, the height of the ramus, the total length of the mandible, and the deviation of the chin were measured and compared between the two sides and between time intervals: preoperatively (T1) and the end of treatment (T2)...

After reconstruction of a segmental mandibular defect with a fibular free flap, a vascular crisis can be detected clinically and a "no-flow" phenomenon found during re-exploration. Traditional methods used to solve this include removal of the failed flap and delayed mandibular reconstruction, or restoration of the defect with a functional reconstruction plate or contralateral fibular free flap. Our aim therefore was to investigate under what circumstances it is feasible to use a non-vascularised fibular bone graft (NVFB) as a free bone graft after the failure of a vascularised fibular free flap...

The only cutting technique used for osteotomies in orthognathic surgery for many years has been a saw, but recently piezoelectric surgery has been introduced as a possible alternative. The aim of this study was to find out if piezoelectric surgery can be more comfortable for patients having orthognathic surgery. A total of 25 patients with dentofacial deformities (seven male and 18 female), were treated from January 2016 to September 2017. In 11 patients, osteotomies were made using a conventional saw, while in 14 a piezoelectric device was used...

Minor salivary glands are ubiquitous in the oral cavity, and related diseases are often indolent and asymptomatic. We describe the unusual features of sclerosing polycystic adenosis, and its similarities to more sinister conditions of the minor salivary glands. Its importance is currently uncertain and research points to a pathogenesis that is neoplastic, which can create ambiguity. Sclerosing polycystic adenosis is a newly-discovered condition that merits further discussion and research to evaluate its full impact...
