BACKGROUND: Intermaxillary fixation (IMF) techniques are commonly used in mandibular fracture treatment to reduce bone fragments and re-establish normal occlusion. However, non-IMF reduction techniques such as repositioning forceps may be preferable due to their quick yet adequate reduction. The purpose of this paper is to assess which non-IMF reduction techniques and reduction forceps are available for fracture reduction in the mandible. METHODS: A systematic search was performed in the databases of Pubmed and EMBASE...

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is a mutilating disease associated with the majority of patients with recurrent epistaxis episodes. The aim of this study was to present a single institution experience with patients treated for nasal epistaxis using a combination of Nd:YAG laser and argon plasma coagulation (APC) vs Nd:YAG laser alone, with a minimum follow-up of 3 years. 45 patients (21 men, 24 women) aged from 15 to 84 years with the diagnosis of HHT were treated in the Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery in Homburg/Saar between 10/2002 and 10/2012 because of epistaxis, using a combination of Nd:YAG laser and APC or Nd:YAG laser alone...

OBJECTIVE: Various measurements are used to quantify cranial asymmetry in deformational plagiocephaly (DP), but studies validating cut-off values and comparing the accuracy of such measurements are lacking. In this study, we compared the accuracy of four different measurements in classifying children with and without DP diagnosed by visual assessment, and sought to determine their optimal cut-off values. STUDY DESIGN: Two experts rated 407 3D craniofacial images of children aged between 3 and 36 months old using the Argenta classification...

INTRODUCTION: The role of the volume of radicular and dentigerous cysts on clinical symptoms is unclear and potentially may predict development of pre- and postoperative complications, especially after cystectomies with large bony defects. Therefore the aim of this study was to assess pre- and postoperative symptoms associated to the volume of jaw cysts. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective chart review of 111 patients with follicular or dentigerous cysts from 2008-2012...

PURPOSE: The measurement of excursive jaw movements is an important instrument for evaluating the functional condition of the temporomandibular system. Dento-maxillofacial development differs widely within different age, weight or height clusters. Tooth eruption is part of the development of the temporomandibular system. Therefore, the dental developmental stage might reflect temporomandibular development more appropriately. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the dental age is a more suitable parameter for evaluating the mandibular movement range of children in the mixed dentition stage than chronological age...

PURPOSE: Maxillofacial fractures represent a serious public health problem. Their epidemiology is extremely variable, and its analysis is crucial to establish effective treatment and prevention of these injuries. However only two works have been published about maxillofacial fracture epidemiology in Italy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The records of 1720 patients diagnosed with maxillofacial fractures in a 15-years period (2001-2015) in our department were retrospectively reviewed...

Perceptual evaluation remains the gold-standard evaluation of cleft speech, but with any human interpretation, there can be bias. Eliminating bias, allowing comparison of speech data between units, is labor and time intensive. Globally, there is a shortage of listeners. We have developed a computer learning system to evaluate cleft speech. Our automated cleft speech evaluator interprets resonance and articulatory cleft speech errors. Speech recognition engines typically ignore voice characteristics and speech errors of the speaker, but in cleft speech evaluation, these features are paramount...

BACKGROUND: Poor prognosis of sinonasal cancers (SNC) is usually due to the non-specific symptoms leading to late diagnosis with locally advanced disease. However, previous prognostic studies were often based on heterogeneous cohorts because of the scarcity of SNC. With squamous cell carcinoma being the main histological subgroup, the study aimed to perform a prognostic analysis on sinonasal squamous cell carcinoma (SNSCC) particularly, and to evaluate the oncological results of a multimodal therapy...

PURPOSE: The free osteomyocutaneous fibular flap has become one of the primary options for mandibular reconstruction, because of the later introduction and development of virtual surgical planning (VSP). However, VSP is associated with high additional pre-operative effort and costs. Therefore, the purpose of the study was to develop a new individual cost-effective pre-operative planning concept for free fibula mandible reconstruction and to compare it with VSP regarding clinical parameters and post-operative outcome...

INTRODUCTION: Locoregional recurrence plays a key role in treatment failure of patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue. In a large amount of studies lymph node ratio could be demonstrated as a promising parameter to stratify risk of patients with oral cavity cancer. However data on the influence of lymph node ratio on locoregional recurrence of tongue squamous cell carcinoma is very rare. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective chart review of 130 patients with treatment naive squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue...
