The reconstruction of orbital-maxillary-zygomatic complex (OMZC) on patients suffering from trauma and space-occupying lesions is challenging due to the irregularity of craniomaxillofacial bones. To overcome the challenge in precise OMZC reconstruction, individual three-dimensional (3D) disease models and mirror-imaged 3D reconstruction models were printed on the basis of the computer tomography. Preoperative planning by rehearsing surgical procedures was made on the 3D disease models and the scaffolds including titanium and absorbable meshes or plates were anatomically premolded using the mirror-imaged 3D models as guide...

The surgical treatment of dentofacial deformities is performed routinely and predictably in dentate patients. However, when dealing with the edentulous maxilla, treatment becomes more challenging and less predictable. In these cases, the combination of orthognathic surgery and osseointegrated implants could be a viable alternative to enable fixed rehabilitation. A patient with an edentulous and atrophic maxilla with maxillomandibular discrepancy and high esthetic requirement was treated with a combination of osseointegrated implants and orthognathic surgery...

The purpose of this case report was to assess whether patient-specific implants (PSI: Xillocs) and soft tissue flaps contribute in reconstructing large mandibular defects. Five patients with a medical situation and history not suitable for free microvascular bone flaps were operated with PSI and evaluated. The mean follow-up time was 12 months. The excellent fit, convenient surgery, and esthetic outcome were seen as the major advantages. The PSI can, in the authors' experience, be considered as a useful alternative provided they are well embedded by viable tissue and attached to vital resection margins of the recipient bone...

Skeletal Class II high-angle open bite is often accompanied by osteoarthrosis of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ-OA). This type of malocclusion is challenging to correct, and it has been reported that patients with TMJ-OA treated with orthognathic surgery often experience skeletal relapse and a poor prognosis. This case report describes the treatment of a 25-year-old woman with retrognathia and TMJ-OA, whose masseter and temporal muscle activities were weak. Temporary anchorage devices were placed in the maxilla and the mandible, and the first molars were intruded...

PURPOSE: Some clinicians are concerned that if an intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO) is used to position the mandible posteriorly, the proximal segments should be positioned laterally to the distal segment, which could increase the transverse mandibular width, leading to esthetically unfavorable results. This study investigated short- and long-term postoperative transverse mandibular width changes in the soft and hard tissue after IVRO for mandibular prognathism. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study comprised 44 patients who were treated with mandibular setback surgery using an IVRO...

Eosinophilic granuloma is the most common form of Langerhans cell histiocytosis and corresponds with bone lesions characterized by pain, rapid growth, and high tendency of recurrence after inadequate curettage. It is a rare disease that is difficult to diagnose clinically and radiographically because it mimics other odontogenic cysts and tumors. In this report, the reconstruction of an osseous defect with an iliac graft and a modified implant-supported hybrid prosthesis after surgical excision of an eosinophilic granuloma in the mandible of a 27-year-old male patient was described...

Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) is the most common benign salivary gland neoplasm, and its malignant transformation rarely occurs. Diagnosis is based on clinical features of local or regional malignancy or distant metastasis, and histological identification of invasion and cellular atypia. Buccal fat pad, also called Bichat fat pad, is an excellent option to create tissue coverage over surgically treated areas, providing great blood supply. Thus, this study aims to report a surgical treatment of a patient who reported to the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Traumatology service of a hospital in the city of Fortaleza, presenting a large lesion in the right side of the palate...
