Pierre Robin syndrome (PRS) is characterized of a triad of clinical signs: micrognathia, glossoptosis and obstruction of the upper airways frequently associated with palatal cleft. It is a heterogenic pathological entity and it can be found as isolated disease (nsPRS) or in association with other syndromes (sPRS), with more pronounced symptoms and systemic involvement. This review aims to summarize the principal features of PRS, analysing the different aspects of the disease. Epidemiological data highlight incidence, severity and mortality of PRS; pathophysiological mechanism reports the etiology and pathogenesis of the disease distinguishing between isolated and syndromic form...

Jorge Chaurand
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis is a complex entity that requires accurate diagnosis and prompt treatment. Multiple surgical modalities have been proposed to treat TMJ ankylosis, including gap arthroplasty, interpositional arthroplasty, and total joint reconstruction. This article is to report one treated with patient specific implants due to its complexity, technical considerations are presented and could be an option for patients with similar conditions requiring this type of complicated treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Maxillary transverse deficiency (MTD) is a common facial disharmony that may need surgical assisted rapid palatal expansion (SARPE). The aim of this study was to present our SARPE technique and to report about our experience. MATERIEL AND METHOD: Medical records of all class III patients who underwent SARPE in our department from 2010 to 2015 and for whom a follow-up of at least 1 year was available, were included in a retrospective study. The technic consisted, after short orthodontic preparation allowing for divergence of the upper central incisors, in a complete Le Fort I osteotomy without down fracture, and medial sagittal submucosal separation of the hard palate under general anesthesia in an inpatient procedure...

Background Ameloblastoma is a rare benign odontogenic tumor with a metastasis rate estimated at 2% of cases, mainly involving the lung (80%) and lymph nodes (20%). Methods We hereby present the case of a 26 year old patient with a history of locally recurrent mandibular ameloblastoma who developed a temporal intracranial ameloblastoma tumor requiring a collaborative neurosurgical and maxillo-facial radical surgical approach. Conclusion Although ameloblastomas are histologically benign, the temporal topography questions the dissemination pathophysiology of the tumor (metastasis or local extension through temporal muscle fibers), mainly relevant in cases of multiple recurrences...

Brain abscess (BA) is an encapsulated infection and can be the consequence of head and cranio-maxillo-facial surgery or trauma, or may be secondary to cavernous thrombophlebitis, but is most frequently due to hematogenous septic dissemination from an adjacent site of infection, such as the paranasal sinuses, middle ear or oral cavity. We report a rare and unfortunate case of multiple BA caused by dental procedures in a young man with undiagnosed patent foramen ovale (PFO). Simple routine dental procedures, such as tooth brushing and professional oral hygiene, can predispose to life-threatening conditions...

Panagiotis Stathopoulos, Leo Stassen
The etymology of the word tracheotomy derives from two Ancient Greek words: the word trachea (Greek τραχɛία tracheía) and the word stoma (Greek στóμα stóma) meaning "mouth," and refers to the making of an opening. It is believed that an early tracheostomy was performed by the Greek physician Asclepiades of Bithynia, in order to treat upper airway obstruction. A secure airway in the intraoperative and early postoperative period is of paramount importance for a number patients undergoing head and neck cancer surgery...

Mucograft is collagen matrix was designed for use in open healing situations due to its compact outer layer. The technique presented in this article is an attempt to avail this attribute for covering open oral wound in guided bone regeneration (GBR) procedure. The essential idea of this technique is to avoid scoring of periosteum, submucosa and muscle layer for buccal flap advancement. Therefore, we used mucograft to cover bone substitute and barrier membrane in GBR surgical procedure. Thus, we avoided periostal-releasing incisions (PRI) and gained reposition of the flap to original level without impairing the attached keratinized gingiva...

INTRODUCTION: Inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) lesions related to endodontic treatments can be explained by the anatomical proximity between the apices of the mandibular posterior teeth and the mandibular canal. The aim of this article is to review the management of inferior alveolar nerve lesions due to endodontic treatments and to establish a therapeutic flow chart. METHODS: A review of publications reporting IAN damage related to endodontic treatment over the past 20 years has been conducted, using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses checklist; it combines an electronic search of the PubMed® and Google Scholar® databasis...

Dry socket is a common complication of dental extraction, especially extraction of third molars. Knowledge of the frequent risk factors of alveolitis osteitis is useful in determining high-risk patients, treatment planning, and preparing the patients mentally. The aim of this narrative review was to summarize the common risk factors of dry socket. A bibliographic search was carried out to find literature regarding risk factors of dry socket after tooth extraction. Each full article or abstract was read at least twice, and the relevant information was summarized...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this retrospective clinical study was to evaluate the indications for and the utility of reconstruction plates in the management of benign mandibular pathological lesions. The complications associated with plate use were also assessed. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The clinical and radiological data of 23 patients (16 males, 7 females) with large, benign mandibular pathologies were evaluated. During operations, reconstruction plates were used to prevent mandibular fracture or to allow for bone reconstruction after segmental or disarticulation resection...

BACKGROUND: Facial burn outcomes are often difficult to treat. Residual scars represent a problem for aesthetic and functional concerns as well as for patient's social and psychological life. Autologous fat graft can be used in the treatment of burn outcomes, providing a sensitive improvement in the quality of the burned areas. The aim of our report is the discussion of the value of lipofilling and fractional CO2 laser in optimizing aesthetic and functional results of burn sequelae. METHODS: We treated twenty four patients with post burns scars who underwent to autologous fat graft followed by CO2 fractional laser treatment...

INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to investigate the knowledge and capabilities of dentists and dental students in their last year of study in regard to risk factors of medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) in Spain. MATERIAL AND METHOD: We conducted a cross-sectional study consisting of a questionnaire survey in Asturias, Spain. The study was divided into three groups: dentists who worked for the public dental health care system (n=32), dentists who worked exclusively as private health care practitioners (n= 136), and dental students in their last year (year five) of study (n= 38)...

INTRODUCTION: Numb chin syndrome (NCS) or mental neuropathy (MN) is a disorder characterized by sensory neuropathy on the distribution of the inferior alveolar nerve or mental nerve. The most frequent causes are of odontogenic origin (infections, wrong therapies). Other etiologies are related to primary tumor, metastasis, osteoradionecrosis and medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ). The aim of this study is to highlight the clinical importance of NCS as one of the first symptoms of cancer or as consequence of drug therapy...

A few cases of accidental displacement of mandibular molar or fragment of tooth into adjacent anatomical spaces, during surgical interventions have been reported. This report describes a unique case of swelling with extra oral skin fistula in mandibular body region caused by unrecognized displacement of a lower first molar root into buccal space.

INTRODUCTION: Malignant degeneration of a branchial cyst is rare [1]. It varies from 4% to 22% [2]. CASE: Report: A74-year-old man presented to our department with a left painless upper neck mass which was excised and histopathology revealed squamous cell carcinoma in a cystic lesion. The appropriate clinical tests and imaging were performed to determine the possible presence of a primary tumor. No primary carcinoma was found. This finding suggests that this was a malignant degeneration of a branchial cyst...
