PURPOSE: The installation of implants has become a routine procedure in the clinic. However, it takes time and adequate bone thickness, and for that, tissue engineering has made efforts to develop substitutes for autografts, in view of certain disadvantages of this material. The decision to choose the most suitable graft material for each case is an important step in the success of bone reconstruction. This study was to verify, by means of immunohistochemical study, that the addition of bone morphogenetic protein had some influence on biomaterials commercially available, taking into account the formation of mineralized tissue, bone replacement, and the amount of degradation of biomaterials...

BACKGROUND: The main goal of treatment of mandibular fractures is to restore normal dental occlusion and promote appropriate bone healing and a normal mouth opening. Recently, there has been a resurgent interest in the use of screws for intermaxillary fixation of mandibular fractures. This study was therefore designed to determine how the clinical outcomes of the use of screws for intermaxillary fixation compare with the use of miniplates in the treatment of mandibular fractures in Nigeria...

PURPOSE: Alcohol intoxication is an important contributor to traumatic facial injuries. The period following injuries afford clinicians a useful window of opportunity to provide alcohol screening and brief intervention (SBI) which may affect changes in patients' future drinking behaviour. Although SBI has been reported to decrease at risk drinking and potentially trauma recurrence, it is not routinely utilised in most clinical settings in the world. This study aims to assess utilisation of, as well as patients' knowledge and attitude towards SBI in the management of patients presenting with alcohol-related facial fractures...

INTRODUCTION: Although some studies addressed the differences between subciliary and transconjunctival approaches, no previous prospective comparative study on displaced zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) fracture that repaired by three-point internal fixation using also upper gingivolabial incision and upper eye lid incision. So, the effect of these incisions on the comparison was not investigated. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare transconjunctival and subciliary approaches for open reduction and internal rigid fixation (OR/IF) of ZMC fractures...

Odontogenic orbital abscess is a rare but well-documented complication of sinusitis and infections spreading from dental apical lesion. We report a case of orbital abscess with periorbital cellulitis, in a 35-year-old man with positive recent dental history of a periapical dental infection arising from the second upper left premolar spread into maxillary sinus. The patient has shown facial edema, ocular pain, ophthalmoplegia, proptosis, and initial visual symptoms. A surgical intervention to drain the abscess and a revision of the dental lesion and maxillary sinus were required...

PURPOSE: We will aim to develop implants made of a Ni-Ti shape memory alloy which can be applied for the treatment of midface fractures, such as isolated orbital floor fractures. These can then be implanted in a compressed form and unfold automatically in the body. With the help of newly developed application instruments, the implants can be applied along transnasal and transantral approaches into the maxillary sinus. Our objective is to evaluate the operation process and the functionality of these implants, already in a pre-investigation by an experienced surgeon on a phantom...

We report a case of a 48-year-old male patient with "krokodil" drug-related osteonecrosis of both jaws. Patient history included 1.5 years of "krokodil" use, with 8-month drug withdrawal prior to surgery. The patient was HCV positive. On the maxilla, sequestrectomy was performed. On the mandible, sequestrectomy was combined with bone resection. From ramus to ramus, segmental defect was formed, which was not reconstructed with any method. Post-operative follow-up period was 3 years and no disease recurrence was noted...

Temporomandibular joint arthrocentesis and arthroscopy have recently exceeded open surgeries for disorders that failed to respond to conservative treatment. The efficacy of arthrocentesis in reestablishing normal mouth opening and reducing pain and dysfunctions is now commonly accepted, but in contrast to arthroscopy, there are no large series studies on arthrocentesis complications. We report the major complication occurred in our experience: a case of a patient that complained of a violent vertigo, without hearing disorders, following the procedure...

Wolfgang Funk
BACKGROUND: Producing youthful facial appearance by face-lifting often comes along with an undesired loss of patient's individual phenotype. This may result from insufficient preservation of retaining ligaments, the "guardians of facial identify," and from severance of the intersegmental connections of the superficial musculo-aponeurotic system (SMAS), which tether, structure, and compartmentalize facial soft tissue into defined, relevant anatomical zones. METHODS: The technique reported here preserves most retaining ligaments...

INTRODUCTION: TMJ arthrocentesis involves lavage of the upper joint space which forces the disc apart from the fossa and washes away the inflammatory components of the joint. To increase the joint space during arthrocentesis, the patient is usually asked to open the mouth and deviate it to the opposite side so as to distract the condyle from the glenoid fossa thereby increasing joint space. METHOD: The authors describe a simple and rapid technique of preparing a custom-made mouth prop to hold the mandible in eccentric position during arthrocentesis...
