F M Ryba, K George
Point-of-care ultrasound is an ultrasound examination that is made at the bedside by the examining clinician in the Accident and Emergency department, clinic, ward, or operating theatre, and it has been growing in popularity since it was first introduced in the 1990s. It is used as an adjunct to clinical examination to aid diagnosis or treatment. We have carried out a pilot survey to assess whether oral and maxillofacial surgeons in the United Kingdom either need or desire to make such an examination. We present the results of our survey and discuss the uses and benefits of point-of-care ultrasound in oral and maxillofacial surgery...

We report the outcomes of 12 patients with osteochondroma of the mandibular condyle who were treated by condylectomy with sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) between January 2011 and October 2015. Variables assessed before and after operation were imaging, appearance, maximum mouth opening, maximum mandibular protrusion, lateral excursion, and function of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Patients were followed up for a mean (range) of 21 (13 - 30) months. Outcomes were satisfactory with no complications or recurrence...

For a sagittal split ramus osteotomy to be secure, the relation between the outer and inner contours of the cortex at the inferior border of the mandible is critical. The lowest point of the outer contour is not always immediately below that of the inner contour, and the former is placed more lingually than the latter in about a third of all cases. This tendency is much more noticeable in skeletal class I and II malocclusions than class III. It is therefore important to examine the lowest point of the inferior border in every case, and to carry the inferior part of the buccal cut on to the lingual side if necessary...

Mandibular step osteotomy is a useful technique for large mandibular setbacks. We report a case of a patient who had a mandibular step osteotomy using a CAD/CAM-derived wafer for mandibular setback with reduction of the arch.

REVIEW
J Breeze, M S Dover, R W Williams
Hypodontia is the term most commonly applied to the condition in which teeth congenitally fail to develop. Such cases differ from teeth that have been lost early or that have failed to erupt, although their initial presentation may be similar and therefore not recognised. The range of missing teeth and their physical and psychological results is large, and the difference in complexity in the management of a patient with isolated hypodontia compared with one with oligodontia or anodontia together with skeletal and orthognathic discrepancies should not be underestimated...

In 2008, we presented our security "high-tech" individual extra-light device mask (SHIELD), a protective shield based on the face cast of an injured soccer player that can be customised. It allows a shortened convalescent period, is comfortable, fits well, and allows the patient to continue to play at a professional level in their chosen sport or activity in the shortest time possible. It has been used often in both amateur and professional categories of many sports, and we now present an update.

E A Garbin Junior, V N de Lima, G A C Momesso, J M Mello-Neto, N M Érnica, O Magro Filho
Our aim was to compare the wound healing of autogenous bone grafts with that of fresh-frozen allogeneic block bone in rabbits. We used 25 animals. One was killed before the experiment to provide the allogeneic bone, and the remainder were killed at four time points (n=6 in each group). On histometrical analysis there was a significant difference between the two groups only at 45days and between 15 and 45days in the intergroup analysis. However, there was significantly more revascularisation (p<0.05), resorption (p<0...

R Taylor, M H Ali, T E Howe, I Varley
Dually-registered specialists in oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) may be subject to disciplinary hearings by the General Medical Council (GMC) and the General Dental Council (GDC) for the same allegations, a phenomenon referred to as "double jeopardy" within the specialty. Previous efforts by both councils to simplify regulatory arrangements have made little progress. We have therefore reviewed the range and scope of fitness to practise (FTP) proceedings relevant to OMFS. We searched the online GMC register to find registered OMFS specialists and obtained FTP proceedings from 2004-2016 through a Freedom of Information request from the GDC...

In this study we investigate the five most cited articles in the British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (BJOMS). Articles cited were usually published in other OMFS journals (40%) or dentistry journals (32%). The mean (SD) SCImago Journal and Country Rank, (SJR) (an interface to access the bibliometric database of journals) for cited papers was 0.64 (SD=0.56). Nearly one third of citations were of research in OMFS and dentistry, suggesting its relevance to the wider academic community.

R H Hossameldin, J P McCain, G Dabus
The aim of the present study was to assess the efficacy of using prophylactic embolisation of the internal maxillary artery to minimise the risk of bleeding during gap arthroplasty. We studied a prospective series of 14 patients with ankylosis of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) between January 2011 and February 2016, who were under the care of one surgeon. They were all treated by embolisation of the internal maxillary artery 24hours before gap arthroplasty. The main outcome variable was estimated blood loss, and others included the need to extend the gap arthroplasty, and the risk of reankylosis...

To find out whether documentation for the extraction of wisdom teeth complies with National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines, we reviewed the referral letters and hospital notes of patients treated at the maxillofacial unit of two NHS Trusts (A: 314 records and B: 280) over 12 months (1 September 2012 to 31 August 2013). Compliance was assessed as unsatisfactory ("indication for extraction not mentioned", "incorrect indication", "indication unclear") or satisfactory ("correct indication implied", "correct indication explicit")...

E Mayo, S Sharma, J Horne, H M Yuen, A Lee, A Gulati
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) that originates in the pinna is thought to have a high risk of metastases (up to 16%) compared with under 5% for cutaneous SCC at any other site, and histological features of the primary tumour may provide evidence for further surveillance or treatment. To identify any association between histological features and the risk of metastases we made an electronic search of the histopathological records at the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust for all patients who presented with auricular SCC from 2007-2012...
