REVIEW
J Breeze, D Tong, A Gibbons
Ballistic maxillofacial trauma in the UK is fortunately relatively rare, and generally involves low velocity handguns and shotguns. Civilian terrorist events have, however, shown that all maxillofacial surgeons need to understand how to treat injuries from improvised explosive devices. Maxillofacial surgeons in the UK have also been responsible for the management of soldiers evacuated from Iraq and Afghanistan, and in this review we describe the newer types of treatment that have evolved from these conflicts, particularly that of damage-control maxillofacial surgery...

R Brown, L Tomasello, D A Mitchell, A Sebald, S Stepney
This study was prompted by awareness of the importance of research into quality of life (QoL) for patients with diseases of the head and neck, the important part questionnaires currently play in this field, and awareness of the "questionnaire fatigue" experienced by many patients. Our multidisciplinary research group raised coincidental awareness of the widespread use of ternary graphs in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities as a graphical tool for quantitative, semiquantitative, or purely graphical characteristics of ternary mixtures...

Repeated haemorrhages in peripheral nerve sheath tumours of the salivary glands are rare. We report the case of a patient with neurofibromatosis type 1 who had two episodes of massive haemorrhage in his right parotid gland the day after a minor injury. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons should be aware that vasculopathy may occur in patients with these tumours.

We describe our experience with the use of 854 couplers for venous or arterial anastomoses, or both, in 601 free flaps for reconstruction of defects of the head and neck. We reviewed 601 patients who had had free flaps (with the microvascular anastomoses being made with couplers in 519) between July 2013 and December 2015. Personal details, and clinical data including the site of the defect, the tumour excised, the types of flaps, the size of the couplers, the method of anastomosis (venous or arterial) in which the coupler was used, and postoperative complications were recorded...

There is a subgroup of patients with mandibular fractures who could safely and effectively be managed in an outpatient day-care unit. Suitability depends on medical, social, and operative factors, and identification of the correct criteria will govern management after that in the emergency department. Reduced use of beds would lead to less money being spent on emergency treatment, and increased capacity for elective surgery. The aims of this study were to identify a group of patients with mandibular fractures whose duration of operation and period of recovery would be suitable for treatment in the day-care unit, and to evaluate the potential financial benefits...

The aim was to analyse the short-term and long-term therapeutic efficacy of dextrose prolotherapy for dislocation or subluxation (hypermobility) of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Sixty-one patients with symptomatic hypermobility of the TMJ were included in this single-arm prospective study, in which they were each given four sessions of intra-articular and pericapsular injections six weeks apart. Each injection comprised 10% dextrose/mepivacaine solution 3ml. Clinical outcomes including severity of pain on movement according to the numerical rating scale (NRS), maximal interincisal opening, clicking, and frequency of locking were measured before treatment (T1), during treatment (T2) (just before the third session of injections), at the short-term follow-up (T3) (three months after treatment), and at the long-term follow-up (T4) (1-4 years after treatment)...

It is difficult to fix fractures of the condylar head of the mandible. Several techniques have been described which show satisfactory outcomes, but stability can be questionable, and some can cause irritation of the soft tissues. We describe a technique and first results of treating such fractures with resorbable magnesium-based headless bone screws (Magnezix(®) 2.7mm CS; Syntellix AG, Hanover, Germany).

Our aim was to assess the accuracy of computer-aided orthognathic surgery for maxillary repositioning in 15 patients with mandibular hyperplasia and normal temporomandibular joints (TMJ). We aligned preoperative and postoperative virtual skulls at the cranium using surface superimposition then recorded and calibrated three 3-dimensional coordinates (maxillary dental landmarks U0, 6R, and 6L) on the skulls. Errors between these preoperative and postoperative landmarks were calculated and the largest error of every patient was chosen for assessment...

Mental health disorders such as depression or anxiety, or both, are more common in patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD) (16%-40%) than in the general population (16%), and failure to recognise them may be detrimental to the management of TMD. Paper-based screening tools previously reported in this group require assessment by clinicians and subsequent collation of data. We describe our experience of a new system - IMPARTS (Integrating mental and physical: research training and services), which uses validated tools to identify and to monitor the progress of patients who may benefit from psychological intervention...

Sialadenitis is one of the common complications of radioiodine treatment for thyroid malignancy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of radioiodine-induced sialadenitis and other side effects by using a self-administered questionnaire. From 1 January 2011 to 31 December 2012 all consecutive patients with a newly-established diagnosis of thyroid cancer who were treated with adjuvant radioiodine at La Timone University Hospital were sent a self-administered questionnaire on salivary complaints that had been specifically designed for this study...

W Terro, St J Crean
Cancer of the head and neck has profound psychosocial and physical effects on patients, so quality of life (QoL) is an essential consideration-not only is it of importance to the patient but it also provides a subjective measure of the success of treatment. However, we know of little work about its influence on carers. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of the diagnosis and treatment on the QoL of patients and their carers from baseline (preoperatively) to three months postoperatively. Thirty-six patients and 21 primary carers were enrolled, and patients completed one head-and-neck-specific measure, the University of Washington Head and Neck, Version Four (UW-V4), and three other questionnaires, both at the time of diagnosis and at one and three months postoperatively...

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...
