PURPOSE: To evaluate the effectiveness of chlorhexidine (CHX) gel and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) compared with PRF alone in preventing the development of alveolar osteitis (AO). MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a double-blinded trial, patients undergoing surgical management of bilateral impacted mandibular third molars were randomly divided into 2 groups; 1 group received PRF in 1 extraction socket with the other socket as its control and the other group received 0.2% CHX gel plus PRF in 1 socket with the other socket serving as its control...

PURPOSE: Descending necrotizing mediastinitis (DNM) is a serious complication of head and neck infections and has an excessively high mortality rate owing to the lack of understanding of DNM. We assessed the clinical characteristics, diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of odontogenic DNM and evaluated the risk factors affecting the prognosis of DNM to provide an up-to-date overview for clinical practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study, enrolling a sample of patients with DNM due to odontogenic infection who had been referred from January 2013 to December 2016...

PURPOSE: The use of technology to aid in assessment, planning, and management of complex craniomaxillofacial injuries is increasingly common. Preoperative computed tomography (CT) evaluation is considered the standard of care, and intraoperative imaging is becoming increasingly accessible. Limited data exist regarding the implication of intraoperative CT on decision making in the management of all sites of facial fractures. The purposes of this study were to characterize the use of an intraoperative CT scanner for craniomaxillofacial surgery within our institution, to quantify the effect of intraoperative CT on surgical decision making, and to attempt to provide guidance on when to use this technology...

PURPOSE: Virtual surgical planning (VSP) with subsequent computer-aided design and manufacturing have proved efficacious in improving the efficiency and outcomes of a plethora of surgical modalities, including mandibular reconstruction and orthognathic surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Five patients underwent complex mandibular reconstruction after traumatic injury using VSP from July 2016 to August 2017 at our institution. The Johns Hopkins University Hospital institutional review board approved the present study...

PURPOSE: In this prospective, randomized, double-blind controlled study, we evaluated the effects of leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF) alone and combined with a hyaluronic acid (HA) sponge on pain, edema, and trismus after mandibular third molar surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In total, 60 patients were included in this study. The patients were randomly divided into 3 groups: L-PRF group (L-PRF was applied to the socket), L-PRF-plus-HA group (L-PRF combined with HA was applied to the socket), and control group (nothing was applied)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare the daily food intake rate and the rate of screw loosening between 2 groups of rabbits with mandibular continuity defects: custom implant (CI) group and 5-hole mini-plate group. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two types of cylindrical implants were printed, and their physical strength was compared. In this study using rabbits, 1 group (n = 5) received a CI for the reconstruction of a mandibular continuity defect (CI group) and the other group (n = 5) received a 5-hole mini-plate without a bone graft (reconstruction plate [RP] group)...

GAPO syndrome is characterized by growth retardation, alopecia, pseudoanodontia, and ophthalmic abnormalities. This very rarely reported syndrome affects various ethnic groups and can present with manifestations other than those usually reported. Pseudoanodontia is a rare clinical and radiologic manifestation that is always associated with GAPO syndrome. Osteomyelitis of the jaws is a less common disease that is usually attributed to odontogenic causes. This case report describes osteomyelitis of the mandible in a patient with GAPO syndrome...

PURPOSE: Computer-assisted design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) techniques are in widespread use for maxillofacial reconstruction. However, CAD/CAM surgical guides are commercially available only in limited areas. To use this technology in areas where these commercial guides are not available, the authors developed a CAD/CAM technique in which all processes are performed by the surgeon (in-house approach). The authors describe their experience and the characteristics of their in-house CAD/CAM reconstruction of the maxilla...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the midterm outcomes of fixed, full-arch, fiber-reinforced resin bridges on ultrashort implants in terms of marginal bone loss and overall implant survival. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with severely atrophic mandibles, corresponding to Cawood and Howell class V and class VI, were included in this prospective temporal cohort study. Mesial and distal peri-implant bone levels were measured on panoramic radiographs taken at the time of implant insertion (baseline) and at follow-up visits...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to answer the following clinical question: of patients who have their third molars (M3s) removed, do those who receive only postoperative antibiotics compared with those who receive no perioperative antibiotics have a lower frequency of postoperative inflammatory complications? MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors designed and implemented a prospective cohort study and enrolled a sample of patients who had at least 1 M3 removed in an ambulatory private practice setting from June 2011 through May 2012 by oral and maxillofacial surgeons participating in a practice-based research collaborative...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of the digital diagnosis and treatment program for maxillofacial fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The data of 626 patients with maxillofacial fractures were analyzed retrospectively from January 2010 to August 2016. These patients were divided into 2 groups. In the experimental group, preoperative planning was conducted and transferred to patients with guiding templates and navigation according to the digital diagnosis and treatment program for maxillofacial fractures...

PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to analyze the potential of using low-dose volumetric computed tomography (CT) during different phases of respiration for identifying patients likely to have severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), defined as a respiratory disturbance index (RDI) higher than 30. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective study was undertaken at the Ramathibodi Hospital (Bangkok, Thailand). Patients with diagnosed OSA (N = 82) were recruited and separated into group 1 (RDI, ≤30; n = 36) and group 2 (RDI, >30; n = 46)...

PURPOSE: Le Fort-type fractures are very rare in children, and there is a paucity of literature presenting their frequency and characteristics. The purpose of this study was to determine the etiology, frequency, and fracture patterns of children with severe facial trauma associated with pterygoid plate fractures in a pediatric cohort. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of all children aged younger than 16 years with pterygoid plate and facial fractures who presented to our institute between 1990 and 2010...

PURPOSE: The admission rate of patients aged 80 years or older (oldest-old) with head and neck (HN) oncologic disease is on the rise. Our goal was to study the demographic characteristics, reasons for admission, types of surgical procedures, and postoperative complications of the oldest-old patients with HN malignancy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study including all inpatients aged 80 years or older who were admitted to the department of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery or department of oral and maxillofacial surgery because of HN oncologic disease between 2009 and 2013...

PURPOSE: The objective was to determine the dimensional impact, on the occlusal and articular level, of the gap produced in the lingual plate from symphyseal fractures, correlated with the dimensional change in the posterior mandibular width. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed an observational experimental study based on 30 computed tomography scans of patients treated by the Maxillofacial Surgery Service, Hospital Clínico Mutual de Seguridad, Santiago, Chile, between 2012 and 2016...
