#1
R Fitzgerald, A Smyth
Patients with cleft lip and palate may require orthognathic surgery to correct severe impairments in midfacial growth. Maxillary advancement in this group, however, is linked to deterioration in velopharyngeal function (VPF), and it is not clear how cleft teams assess this risk. We therefore surveyed surgeons from 15 cleft units who provide orthognathic treatment, to gain an understanding of current practice in the UK and Ireland. A total of 16/21 surgeons from 14/15 units responded. While 14/16 surgeons agreed that these patients are at risk of a deterioration in VPF after maxillary advancement, two disagreed...

Injuries to the parotid ducts are difficult to locate, assess, and repair, and traditionally, solid metal dilators and soft plastic tubes have had only limited success. We describe the Seldinger technique with a central venous catheter, which makes repair easier.

Our objective was to identify key issues that affect the quality of life (QoL) of adult patients with craniofacial anomalies. This was a qualitative prospective study using in-depth, semi-structured interviews. Ten patients who fulfilled the inclusion criteria were recruited during their attendance at the Adult Craniofacial Clinic at the Eastman Dental Hospital, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Interviews ceased when no new themes arose. A framework method of analysis was used to identify themes that related to QoL...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the calcium, sodium, potassium, serum iron, vitamin B12, and albumin concentrations, and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, in samples of serum from patients with primary trigeminal neuralgia (TN), and investigate the associations between them. Results from 73 patients who had been diagnosed with primary TN between December 2015 and 2017 were compared with those of 70 healthy subjects. Calcium (p=0.013), iron (p=0.004), and albumin (p=0.001) concentrations in the primary TN group were significantly lower than those in the control group, whereas the ALP activity was significantly higher in the TN group than in the control group (p=0...

REVIEW
O Buhara, S Pehlivan
We have estimated the joint effects of two important risk factors on early failure of implants and then ranked all quoted risks by importance. We made a systematic search of published papers listed in PubMed, Web of Knowledge, Scopus, and Cochrane Central up to March 2018, and identified a total of 437 records. Eight studies met the inclusion criteria, in which seven significant risk factors for early failure were selected and used to build a conceptual simulation model. Selected risk factors were: "male sex", "smoking", "quality of bone", "short implants", "wide implants", "adjacent teeth", and "periodontitis"...

L A Davies, E M S Crawford, J L Jones, S D Jones
In the UK, patients who have bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) have generally been thought to require inpatient admission and an overnight hospital stay. However, since the introduction of national standards on day case surgery in the UK in 2011, patients at the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport, have been treated as day cases, and have been pleased with the results. The aim of this paper was to show that these procedures conform to current national standards, and can be done successfully and safely. We retrospectively reviewed all patients who had isolated BSSO planned as day cases between March 2015 and February 2017...

Patients with disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) who do not respond to non-operative treatment may require invasive procedures such as arthrocentesis and arthroscopy. We divided 80 patients with dysfunction of the TMJ into two groups: a control group who were treated by conventional arthrocentesis, and an experimental group who were treated by ultrasound-guided arthrocentesis. Both groups were monitored three days, one week, and one month postoperatively and the clinical outcomes compared. The experimental group had a significant reduction in the degree of pain in the immediate postoperative period (p=0...

Conservative treatment of odontogenic tumours with decompression or marsupialisation is not common, but can be done successfully in those with a cystic pattern. We present a calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour that was treated by tube decompression and subsequent enucleation.

We assessed the use of peptides containing arginylglycylaspartic acid (RGD) that target integrin αvβ6 as a potential approach for a fluorescence-assisted intraoperative cytological assessment of bony resection margins (F-AICAB) in patients who had bone-infiltrating squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the head and neck. This was assessed to demarcate invasive carcinoma cells that stained for αvβ6. Specimens from bony resection margins (n=362) were defined as either malignant or benign according to the results of cytological and histological examinations...

Patient-reported outcomes are increasingly used by clinical teams as indicators of quality when assessing treatment after a diagnosis of head and neck cancer. About a third of patients report reduced sexual interest or enjoyment after such treatment but, despite that, there is no questionnaire about intimacy that has been developed specifically for them. The aim of this study was to develop such a questionnaire, to gain an indication of the relative incidence of individual items, and to compare characteristics such as age, stage, treatment, time since treatment for an established head and neck cancer, and a health-related quality of life (QoL) measure (European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Quality of Life Questionnaire-C30 with the Head and Neck 35 module)...

We retrospectively studied the clinical features, complications, and outcomes of deep neck infections in 31 adult patients with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) (HIV group) and 192 patients without (non-HIV group). In the HIV group, the cause was more likely to be odontogenic (21 (68%) compared with 90 (47%); odds ratio (OR) 2.38; 95% CI 1.06 to 5.32). In both groups, the parapharyngeal, submandibular, and masticator spaces, were those most often involved. However, in the HIV group, Ludwig's angina was common, and was the main cause of airway obstruction...

Our aim was to assess the association between the angle of impaction of the third molar and the position of the mandibular canal on cone-beam computed tomography (CT). We designed a retrospective study of 100 cone-beam CT images of 173 mandibular third molars that were obtained between January 2012 and December 2015, and recorded the angle of impaction of the third molar, the position of the mandibular canal in relation to the impacted tooth, and the potential contact between the roots of the tooth and the mandibular canal...

Over the last couple of years, new teaching methods have been developed and implemented in German universities, but only rarely in dental schools. The aim of this project therefore was to implement students' requests for such methods to be used in dental education. In 2012, based on an analysis of both quantitative and qualitative requirements, we designed a questionnaire for quantitative analysis, and evaluated a series of lectures on oral and maxillofacial surgery. Based on our findings, we then designed a blended learning module that was gradually integrated into the series...

The osteotomy in a bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSRO) is made in close proximity to the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN), so direct damage to the nerve and irreversible neurosensory deficit may result. The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of injury to the nerve when a conventional osteotomy using an osteotome was made, with that after manual twist splitting. We retrospectively reviewed the casenotes of 769 consecutive patients who had bilateral SSRO either alone or with a simultaneous maxillary procedure by a single surgeon from May 2009 - October 2016...
