To establish the prognostic factors for primary intraosseous squamous cell carcinoma we designed a retrospective study of patients treated in the head and neck department of a tertiary referral centre in China from 2010-2015. We collected clinical, radiological, and histopathological data from 36 patients treated during the given time period, among which 34 were followed up. There were 22 male and 12 female patients, 13 of whom gave a history of smoking tobacco and four who drank alcohol. All 34 patients were treated by segmental mandibulectomy and neck dissection...

Actinic keratosis, leukoplakia, carcinoma in situ, and superficially invasive carcinomas of the lower lip are caused mainly by the cumulative effects of exposure of the vermilion of the lower lip to ultraviolet radiation. Current treatments all have limitations: cryosurgery or electrosurgery is suitable to treat only focal lesions; topical chemotherapy, which is an option for diffuse actinic damage, yields unreliable results; and laser treatment fails to rejuvenate the vermilion. However, "lip shave", which involves full-thickness excision of the damaged vermilion and reconstruction with an advancement labial mucosal flap, will produce a fresh mucosal lining to the vermilion border...

Facial palsy is a severe condition that may be ameliorated by facial reanimation, but there is no consensus about how to judge its success. In this study we aimed to test a new method for assessing facial movements based on 3-dimensional analysis of the facial surfaces. Eleven patients aged between 42 and 77 years who had recently been affected by facial palsy (onset between 6 and 18 months) were treated by an operation based on triple innervation: the masseteric to temporofacial nerve branch, 30% of the hypoglossal fibres to the cervicofacial nerve branch, and the contralateral facial nerve through two cross-face sural nerve grafts...

To evaluate the effect of postoperative irrigation with chlorhexidine on inflammatory complications after the extraction of lower third molars under local anaesthesia, we recruited 100 patients to participate in a controlled, single-blind, randomised clinical trial. They were assigned to one of two groups: the intervention group (postoperative irrigation of the surgical site with chlorhexidine for seven days) or the control group (postoperative chlorhexidine mouth rinse for seven days). The primary outcome variables were pain, swelling, trismus, infection, and alveolar osteitis...

Nodular fasciitis is a relatively rare benign lesion of the soft tissue, which often presents in the fascia or deep subcutaneous tissues. It most commonly presents in the upper extremities and trunk and the head and neck region, particularly in younger patients. Its pathogenesis is poorly understood and it is predominantly thought to be a reactive lesion, although some have suggested that it may be a benign neoplasm. Advances in molecular testing and imaging have greatly assisted diagnosis. We discuss the benefits of ubiquitin-specific protease 6 (USP6) gene rearrangement testing and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to aid this uncommon diagnosis...

We designed a retrospective study to evaluate the efficacy of retroseptal transconjunctival approaches in the management of fractures of the zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC). The patients were from a single institution, and had had three-point fixation of fractures of the ZMC between 2008 and 2016. A total of 77 patients (56 men and 21 women with a mean (range) age of 28 (18-54) years), were divided into two groups. Group I (n=51) had had reduction and fixation of the infraorbital rim using a retroseptal transconjunctival approach...

Many maxillofacial patients have serious short, medium, or long-term problems, as well as having to make informed decisions about often life-changing interventions. Validated comprehensive information, at the right time and the right level for a diverse group of users (patients, carers, and professionals), is vital if patients are to make a serious contribution to their treatment. We describe the development of an online resource for this purpose. Maxfacts.uk aims to cover every aspect of oral and maxillofacial surgery and care, from neck dissection and ballistic wounds to physiotherapy and texture-modified foods...

The 8th edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) Staging Manual introduces "depth of invasion" and "extranodal extension" into the head and neck section, and our aim was to find out if these changes have an impact on prognosis. We evaluated 174 patients who had had oral squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) resected between 2003 and 2012. The clinical records were reviewed, the patients' tumours restaged according to the 8th edition of the AJCC, and we analysed five-year survival to verify whether different correlations were made between the T and N stages and disease-specific survival using the 7th and 8th editions...

We evaluated 78 patients who had intermaxillary fixation (IMF) of fractured mandibular condyles with arch bars and wires. Depending on whether the wires were bent apically or occlusally during placement of the arch bars, we randomly divided the patients into two groups (n=39 in each), then compared pain, satisfaction with oral hygiene, and complications between the groups at five to six weeks postoperatively when the arch bars were removed. Outcomes were significantly better in the occlusal group than in the apical group...

We investigated the prognosis after three years of treatment for recurrent dislocation of the temporomandibular joint with autologous blood given intravenously in 21 patients with a mean (range) age 64 (17-92) years of whom 16 had coexisting systemic disease. The mean (range) follow up from the first injection was 64 (41-99) months. Eighteen patients had no recurrence during the first 36 months after their first injection, which showed that this minimally-invasive treatment was effective, particularly for those who had conditions that made a mouthpiece or operation unsuitable...

Preservation or regeneration of the papilla has always been a challenge around consecutive implants or with implants next to teeth, and many studies have evaluated the papilla's behaviour and patterns based on surgical technique and prosthetic design, though evidence about its behaviour around zirconia implants is scarce. The aim of this study was to evaluate papilla behaviour between implants and teeth (tooth-implant group) and between consecutive implants (implant-implant group). Ninety patients with 122 zirconia implants (Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant) were examined at the one-year follow up...

REVIEW
D Parry, R S Oeppen, H Gass, P A Brennan
As clinicians we sometimes fail to look after ourselves at work. We often do not drink enough during the day or miss lunch breaks while caring for patients, and this can be particularly evident during an all-day operating list when procedures are long and complex. Some operating theatre staff do not even eat breakfast regularly. Inadequate intake of fluids or nutrition can impair performance, lead to tiredness and headaches, and may compromise both our own health and the care we provide to patients. Other high-risk organisations, including aviation, have recognised that employees must look after themselves if they are to optimise their performance...

The head and neck cancer Patient Concerns Inventory (PCI-HN) is a holistic, self-reported list of items that can help patients to disclose their needs and concerns during routine follow-up consultations. The aim of this study was to report how often it was used during the first three years of follow up after treatment for oral cancer, and the range of issues that were raised. The sample comprised consecutive patients treated over a three-year period with curative intent. All clinic attendances were reviewed until October 2015 or until patients had a recurrence, a subsequent primary, metastases, or were discharged home or to follow up at a peripheral hospital, or started palliative care...
