AIM: The success rates of free flaps in patients undergoing head and neck cancer (HNC) surgery are very high (95%- 97%) but the development of a surgical site infection (SSI) can put flap viability at risk. The aim of our study is to identify the risk factors for SSI in patients undergo free flaps reconstruction after head and neck cancer removal. MATERIAL OF STUDY: Seventyseven patients (44 male and 33 female) from April 2006 to April 2015 admitted at the Department of Maxillofacial Surgery of the University of Naples "Federico II" were included in this study...

PURPOSE: The role of antibiotic use in third molar (M3) surgery is controversial. The purpose of this study was to measure the association between antibiotic use and postoperative inflammatory complications after M3 surgery in the community office-based ambulatory private practice setting. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors designed and implemented a prospective cohort study and enrolled a sample composed of patients who had at least one M3 removed in a private practice setting by oral and maxillofacial surgeons participating in a practice-based research collaborative from June 2011 through May 2012...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of a 3- versus 1-day antibiotic regimen on the rate of surgical site infection (SSI) in patients undergoing orthognathic surgery at a department of oral and maxillofacial surgery in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective, randomized controlled trial was conducted. All patients received 1 day of intravenous antibiotics after surgery. Then, patients were randomly distributed into groups that received 2 days of additional antibiotics (group A) or placebo (group B)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this retrospective study was to determine the prevalence of surgical site infection (SSI) after orthognathic surgery at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of Capital Health and Dalhousie University (Halifax, NS, Canada). PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review of all patients undergoing orthognathic surgery from October 2005 through April 2013 was performed. The outcome variable was SSI. The primary predictor variable was the antibiotic used for prophylaxis...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study is to retrospectively evaluate the postoperative complication rates for absorbable type-I collagen sponge (Ateloplug; Bioland) use in third molar extraction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January to August 2013, 2,697 total patients undergoing third molar extraction and type-I collagen sponge application in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Yonsei University Dental Hospital (1,163 patients) and Dong-A University Hospital (1,534 patients) were evaluated in a retrospective study using their operation and medical records...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the prophylactic application of antibiotics in oral and maxillofacial surgery and to provide a scientific basis for its reasonable use. METHODS: The use of prophylactic antibiotics in the oral and maxillofacial surgery was conducted in our hospital from January 2011 to August 2013 based on a retrospective survey, and the conditions and affecting factors were analyzed. RESULTS: The utilization rates of prophylactic antibiotics were respectively 98...

Surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molar (SRIMTM) is the most common procedure performed in oral and maxillofacial surgery. In the literature, many complications associated with lower third molar removal are described such as pain, swelling, trismus, infection, inflammation, and nerve damage. Antibiotics are routinely used either pre-operatively or post-operatively to reduce the chances of surgical site infection (SSI). However routine use of antibiotics for SRIMTM is still controversial. For antibiotics to be effective in reducing post-operative infective complications, the time of administration is very important...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of single dose Azithromycin as prophylactic antibiotic in surgical removal of mandibular third molar. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was carried out as an open clinical trial on fifty (23 males & 27 females) patients chosen from the ones referred to our Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Department for surgical removal of mandibular third molar (SRMTM). Pre-surgical evaluation of pain, swelling, lymphadenopathy, fever and purulent discharge from the surgical site were made...

PURPOSE: This study was performed to gain some knowledge on the possible relation between surgical site infection (SSI) and geriatric patients who undergo surgical treatment of oral squamous cell carcinoma and to identify the risk factors in this specific population. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study from 2004 through 2010 at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine was conducted...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical site infection (SSI) is a very common problem in hospital infection control. It represents a risk for the safety of the patient and therefore its reduction is a priority in Health Services. The aim of the study is to analyse the incidence of SSI in the surgical departments of a tertiary hospital. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A prospective cohort study was conducted on 14,455 patients admitted from January 2001 to December 2004. The cumulative incidence (CI) crude and adjusted for the National Nosocomial Infection Surveillance (NNIS) index and the incidence density (ID) of SSI were calculated...

Data regarding the use of prophylactic antibiotics and infection rate following surgery for fractures of the zygomatic bone is scarce. Therefore an audit of the use and outcomes of antibiotic prophylaxis for surgery of fractures of the zygoma was undertaken. Following audit approval, four maxillofacial surgery units in the Yorkshire Region gathered prospective data for 134 patients undergoing surgery for fractures of the zygoma. Data was collected on four groups of patients undergoing surgery for fractures of the zygomatic bone: uncomplicated reductions of the zygomatic arch, reductions of the zygomatic complex without mini-plate fixation, reductions of the zygomatic complex using mini-plate fixation but excluding zygomatico-maxillary buttress, and fixation of the zygomatic complex with miniplates including the zygomatico-maxillary buttress...
