PURPOSE: Whistle deformities are frequent sequelae after surgical correction of cleft lip, trauma, or tumor excision. The aim of this study was to examine the role of autologous free fat grafting in the reconstruction of whistle deformity. PATIENTS: Fifteen patients with whistle deformity were enrolled in this pilot study. The mean follow-up period was 19 months. Liposuction was done followed by the replantation of an average of 2.2 ml autologous fat per patient (range 0...

INTRODUCTION: Animal bite injuries to the head and neck regions are an important public health problem. Most of these bites are from dogs. A 10-year retrospective study was undertaken to determine the prevalence of animal and human bites. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective study was done from January 2011 to December 2016 and included 387 patients with a mean age of 21.51 years. Data collection included age, sex, days of hospitalization, lesion type, and clinical management...

The purpose of this study was to retrospectively investigate the multivariate relationships between specific risk factors and postoperative hemorrhage after tooth extraction in patients who were prescribed oral antithrombotic therapy. Risk factors for postoperative hemorrhage after tooth extraction were evaluated using univariate and multivariate analyses. Patient characteristics such as age and gender; the presence or absence of known comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cerebral infarction, and alcohol consumption; and perioperative diarrhea were assessed...

Nasal dorsum augmentation is commonly performed using autologous cartilage grafts, also in the Turkish Delight technique. The aim of this study was to describe a modification of the Turkish Delight technique for dorsal augmentation consisting of small hydroxyapatite-calcium carbonate granules (0.5-1 mm) that were wrapped in layers of oxidized cellulose and glued with 1-2-cm(3) fibrin sealant and to compare its utility with that of other techniques. Clinically stable and satisfactory results were achieved in the four cases examined...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to compare the value of screening for synchronous multiple primary cancers in other organs by esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) or (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography (PET-CT) in patients newly diagnosed with oral cancer. METHODS: We retrospectively examined consecutive Japanese patients who were diagnosed with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and were screened for synchronous multiple primary cancers in other organs by EGD and/or PET-CT between January 2010 and December 2015 at our institution...

INTRODUCTION: Hemophilic pseudotumor is a rare complication occurring in patients with hemophilia, frequently seen in the femur, tibia, pelvic bones, iliac bones, or rarely in the maxillofacial region. CASE REPORT: A 7-year-old male reported with a spontaneous extra-oral swelling that was managed with pre-operative transfusion of factor IX along with curettage of the lesion. Our report presents only the fourth case in literature wherein this tumor presented in a patient with hemophilia B...

INTRODUCTION: This study was performed to evaluate the efficacy and post-operative complication of 3-dimensional (3D) titanium miniplate and locking plate in mandibular fractures (parasymphysis, symphysis, body, and angle). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty patients, with non-comminuted mandibular fractures treated with open reduction and internal fixation using 3D titanium miniplate system or locking plate system through an intra-oral approach, were included in this study...

INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to establish the anatomical relation between nasal septum deviation (NSD) and oropharynx volume in different facial patterns using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). METHODS: Ninety CBCT examinations were analyzed. InVivoDental software was used to evaluate cephalometric image reconstructions in terms of facial type, determined from cephalometric measurements indicative of growth direction; the presence of NSD was also evaluated...

Lymphatic malformations are rare slow-flow vascular malformations, with high tendency to appear in the head and neck region. The treatment of these lesions ranges from follow-up to sclerosing agent injection to surgical excision. The authors present a case of a new born with large extensive lingual and submandibular lymphatic malformation, for which the patient underwent tracheostomy and gastrostomy insertion. He was then treated successfully with sclerosing agent injections followed by surgical excision, with 7 years follow-up...

REVIEW
Kai H Lee, Andrew Hughes
Facial trauma is commonly associated with excessive consumption of alcohol and is often associated with interpersonal violence or motor vehicle accidents. Alcohol-related trauma presentation to hospitals causes a major service burden, and there have been efforts to reduce such trauma load with educational programs and social support. Brief alcohol intervention (BAI) in an acute setting (emergency department or trauma centre) has been shown as an effective means to reduce future alcohol intake and the incidence of future alcohol-related injuries, especially in the period immediately following injuries...

PURPOSE: A comparative study of the use of the 2.0-mm locking fixation system with conventional systems in the treatment of mandibular fractures was performed. METHODS: For this study, 87 consecutive patients with 112 mandibular fractures were randomized to receive either 2.0-mm locking plates (n = 45) or conventional 2.0- or 2.4-mm plates (n = 42) and had a minimum follow-up of 6 months. Fractures were classified based on the degree of displacement and complexity...

PURPOSE: This retrospective study investigated the relationship between the degree of neurosensory disturbance (NSD) and mandibular movement distance after sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) and assessed sensory recovery. METHODS: Lower lip hypoesthesia was evaluated at 1 week, 1 month, and 2 months after SSRO in 38 patients categorized according to the distance of mandibular movement: S group (0-7 mm; n = 17, 4 males and 13 females) and L group (7-14 mm; n = 21, 7 males, 14 females)...

PURPOSE: The efficacy of intraoperative nerve monitoring is controversial in the literature. This study of a single surgeon's experience seeks to determine if the use of intraoperative nerve monitoring influences recurrent laryngeal nerve injury during thyroid surgery. METHODS: Six hundred fifty-seven patients with normal pre-operative vocal fold function underwent thyroid surgery without the use of intraoperative nerve monitoring from September 1997 to January 2007, while 761 patients underwent thyroid surgery from February 2007 to February 2016 with routine use of nerve monitoring...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to carry out morphologic and topographic analyses of retromolar canals on cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) scans, comparing findings to others obtained from the corresponding digital panoramic radiographs. METHODS: Sixty-one CBCT scans were analysed digitally, as well as their corresponding digital panoramic radiographs. The prevalence and distribution of these canals, foramen diameters, and intraosseous communications were also evaluated...
