PURPOSE: The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effect of orthognathic surgery on the long-term quality of life of patients who received this treatment and to delineate the common reasons for dissatisfaction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, patients who underwent orthognathic surgery were studied. One hundred thirty-two patients who had undergone orthognathic surgery from 2007 to 2017 in the oral and maxillofacial surgery department participated in this study...

PURPOSE: Given the increasing costs of medical care, there has been a shift to outpatient elective surgeries in certain patient populations among all surgical specialties. The goal of this study was to compare the safety and efficacy of outpatient parotidectomy with traditional inpatient parotidectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective chart review of all patients who underwent a parotidectomy at a single tertiary academic center from 2007 through 2017...

PURPOSE: Sight-threatening injuries associated with orbital fractures are of major concern to maxillofacial surgeons whom are often the first asked to assess these patients. Eliciting signs and symptoms that are predictive of these injuries would allow expedited ophthalmic consultation and appropriate management. We hypothesized that abnormal pupillary response is predictive of major ocular injuries. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of patients with facial fractures was instituted with review of all associated ophthalmic injuries...

Avulsive injuries to the ear are extremely challenging to treat. The literature documents numerous ways to manage such injuries. This report describes a case of total auricular cartilaginous avulsion that occurred during a motor vehicle accident. The avulsed segment had an ischemia time longer than 8 hours by the time of presentation at the authors' tertiary care facility. The avulsed segment was de-epithelialized and embedded into the volar forearm. After a healing period of 6 months, a radial forearm free flap was harvested and the ear was reconstructed...

PURPOSE: Surgical orthodontic patients with facial asymmetry frequently show asymmetry of the lips, and this is often a major complaint of patients. This study investigated whether lip asymmetry associated with the maxilla and mandible was improved when 2-jaw surgery was performed in surgical orthodontic treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Inclusion criteria for this retrospective cohort study were 1) an anteroposterior maxillary relation defined as skeletal Class I; 2) menton (Me) tranverse deviation greater than 5...

Actinomycosis is a rare, chronic, slowly progressive granulomatous disease caused by filamentous gram-positive anaerobic bacteria from the Actinomycetaceae family (genus Actinomyces). It has become a rare condition because of the widespread use of antibiotics. When clinical symptoms are not typical, diagnosis of this condition becomes difficult. This report describes a case involving an 82-year-old woman who was diagnosed with actinomycotic osteomyelitis of the mandible using matrix assisted laser desorption ionization-time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS)...

PURPOSE: Arthroscopic lysis and lavage surgery (AS) is an effective modality that can decrease pain and increase maximum interincisal opening (MIO) in patients with internal derangement (ID) of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). However, some patients remain in pain or have limited mandibular range of motion despite AS. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness, prevalence of adverse effects, and predictors of response to TMJ AS in patients with TMJ arthralgia and ID...

PURPOSE: Postoperative instructions that are properly delivered can decrease postextraction side effects, such as stress, anxiety, and pain, in patients undergoing dental extraction. This study examined the role of the mode of delivering postoperative instructions in decreasing the side effects of dental extraction and increasing patient satisfaction after the procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This randomized clinical trial was conducted on a population of 120 patients presenting to the oral and maxillofacial outpatient clinic affiliated with the Shiraz University of Medical Sciences (Shiraz, Iran) in 2015...

REVIEW
Panagiotis Stathopoulos, Philip Ameerally
PURPOSE: This report describes the case of a serious orbital injury in which the globe was completely displaced into the nasal cavity and the orbit was clinically empty. The authors discuss the difficulties encountered in the management of this patient and their principles in the reconstruction of a complex defect. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this rare case of severe injury, the authors used a combined transconjunctival and ethmoidal approach to retrieve the displaced globe from the nasal cavity...

PURPOSE: The aim of this pilot study was to assay metal concentrations in the serum of patients who had undergone dental implant placement, orthognathic surgery using rigid metal fixation plates and screws, and total temporomandibular joint replacement (TMJ TJR). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty patients were identified and included in this pilot study. Sixteen patients (9 men and 8 women), with an average age of 44 years (range, 19 to 79 yr), provided informed consent to participate and were divided into 3 study groups with 4 patients in each (group 1, orthognathic surgery; group 2, TMJ TJR; and group 3, dental implant placement)...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) on peripheral nerve injury in the early period of healing. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thirty Wistar albino rats were used in this study. Rats were divided into control (C), damaged (D), PRF, and PRGF groups. The left sciatic nerves of each group were identified as group C. Crush-type injury was performed on the right sciatic nerves of the D, PRF, and PRGF groups...

PURPOSE: It has been widely accepted that a split of the deep temporal fascia occurs approximately 2 to 3 cm above the zygomatic arch and extends into the superficial and deep layers. The deep layer of the deep temporal fascia is between the superficial temporal fat pad and the temporal muscle. However, during procedures, the authors noted the absence of the deep layer of the deep temporal fascia between the superficial temporal fat pad and the temporal muscle. This prospective study was conducted to clarify the presence or absence of a deep layer of the deep temporal fascia...
