Edward I Chang, Peirong Yu
BACKGROUND: A double island free fibula (DIFF) flap can be used for reconstruction of through-and-through or complex mandibulectomy defects, but prospective studies are lacking. METHODS: Prospective analysis of all double skin paddle fibula flaps performed from 2010 to 2016. RESULTS: Overall, 16 patients underwent reconstruction with a DIFF flap (average age: 59.1 years). One patient, who underwent a DIFF flap and developed osteoradionecrosis, requiring a second flap...

RATIONALE: A pedicle pectoralis major musculocutaneous (PMMC) flap is one of the strategies for head and neck reconstruction. Seldom studies reported the case in which the skin area of previous modified radical mastectomy (MRM) had been used as a PMMC flap in head and neck reconstruction. PATIENT CONCERNS: An 84-year-old female who had suffered from left breast cancer and undergone a left modified radical mastectomy (MRM) more than 20 years earlier. DIAGNOSES: She had squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue and had undergone partial glossection and left modified radial neck dissection...

BACKGROUND: Plate-related complications following head and neck cancer ablation and reconstruction remains a challenging problem often requiring further management and reconstructive surgeries. We aim to identify an association between surgical site infections (SSI) and plate exposure. METHODS: A retrospective study between 1997 and 2014 was performed to study the association between postoperative SSI and plate exposures. Eligible patients included those with a history of oral squamous cell carcinoma who underwent surgical resection, neck dissection, and free tissue reconstruction...

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Several factors affect the prosthetic outcome of patients with mandibular defects. However, it is questionable whether fixed or removable implant-supported prostheses meet the expectations and satisfaction of the patients. The perspectives of these patients are important in managing the prosthetic treatment strategies. PURPOSE: The purpose of this prospective clinical study was to evaluate the satisfaction and oral health-related quality of life of patients with marginal mandibulectomies with implant-retained overdentures and fixed metal-acrylic resin prostheses...

CASE DESCRIPTION A 12-year-old neutered male domestic shorthair cat had been treated for a mass arising from the lingual aspect of the caudal right mandibular body. Cytoreductive surgery of the mass had been performed twice over a 2-year period, but the mass recurred following both surgeries. The mass was diagnosed as an osteosarcoma, and the cat was referred for further evaluation and treatment. CLINICAL FINDINGS Clinical findings were unremarkable, except for a 2-cm-diameter mass arising from the lingual aspect of the right mandible and mild anemia and lymphopenia...

Commissurorraphy is a surgical procedure designed to move the lip commissure rostrally. This procedure may be helpful as a unilateral procedure in cases of unilateral mandibulectomy to support tongue function and improve esthetics. Bilateral commissurorraphy is utilized in cases of radical bilateral mandibulectomy and as a salvage procedure for support of bilateral mandibular fractures in cases where rigid surgical fixation is not feasible. Dehiscence is the most likely complication of commissurorraphy. Tension can be reduced at the rostral extent of the incision by utilizing mattress sutures, intravenous fluid tubing, and/or buttons to prevent tearing through sutures...

Cervical chylomas are rare pseudocystic collections that lack an epithelial lining and arise from the thoracic duct or its tributaries; although they typically develop after neck surgery or trauma, they can arise from unknown causes. Treatment options include not only conservative therapy, such as dietary modification, repeated aspirations, and sclerotherapy, but also include surgical excision. We describe a case of a chyloma in a 64-year-old Japanese woman with squamous cell carcinoma of the gingiva. The chyloma developed following left segmental mandibulectomy with radical neck dissection and reconstruction, using a titanium plate and a pectoralis major myocutaneous flap...

Oral lichen planus (OLP) is an immune-mediated mucocutaneous disease associated with an increased risk in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Nearly all cases of malignant transformation have been reported in patients >40 years old. We report the case of a 37-year-old woman with a 5-year history of erosive OLP who presented with malignant transformation to OSCC. Delineating the margins of the disease was impossible at presentation given her OLP, and she was initially treated with concurrent chemoradiation therapy...

Mandibular resections compromise the balance and symmetry of mandibular functions. Since centuries there has been advent of various prosthetic treatment modalities to improve the masticatory efficiency. Swing lock dentures, a treatment facet with high degree of clinical effectiveness, yet gradually fading into oblivion due to its design complexities, has been resurrected by retaining its indigenous concept of reciprocation, and consolidating aesthetics with introduction of newer breed of aesthetic material (Thermoplastic Acetal resin)...

Intraosseous schwannomas of the mandible are rare tumors that usually arise from peripheral nerve sheaths of the main trunk or branches of the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN).A systematic review of the English literature through PubMed was conducted from 1945 to 2016. Forty-nine patients of mandibular intraosseous schwannomas were identified. The most common location of the tumor was the posterior mandible (61.2%). There were 28 patients in whom the tumor involved the IAN (57.1%). The most commonly performed procedures included enucleation through a mucoperiosteal flap and a bone window (73%), curettage (10%), segmental mandibulectomy (10%), and sagittal split ramus osteotomy (6%)...

Combined upper alveolectomy and segmental mandibulectomy are complex defects. Reconstruction of these defects is usually suboptimal. We describe the case of a pediatric patient with vessel-depleted neck with recurrent vascular malformation involving the ramus and coronoid process of mandible and a previous history of maxillectomy and a reconstruction with anterolateral thigh flap. The patient underwent wide resection. The defects involving the upper alveolus and mandible were simultaneously reconstructed with a single free fibula flap...

Acanthomatous ameloblastoma is a common, locally invasive, nonmetastasizing tumor of the canine oral cavity. The long-term prognosis for canine acanthomatous ameloblastoma is good if complete excision can be achieved, usually by maxillectomy or mandibulectomy. A variant of acanthomatous ameloblastoma with atypical foci was noted in 5 dogs. There was no age, breed, or sex predisposition. Atypical cells were pleomorphic with a high mitotic rate. They were immunohistochemically negative for cytokeratin, vimentin, melan A, PNL2, CD3, Pax5, CD18, chromogranin A, and synaptophysin...

The loss of teeth and the alveolar bone secondary to resection of mandibular tumors may lead to unfavorable esthetic and functional results with a significant impairment of mastication.The authors report a 53-year-old patient with recurrence of ameloblastoma who was submitted to marginal mandibulectomy. Bone defect was immediately reconstructed using fresh frozen bone graft and 9 months after reconstruction 3 dental implants were inserted in the grafted bone. After 6 months, dental rehabilitation was achieved using a fixed implant-supported prosthesis...

INTRODUCTION: Marginal mandibulectomy (MM) is indicated for oral cavity squamous cell carcinomas (OCSCC) that abut or minimally erode the mandible without gross invasion. Successful implementation of MM is predicated on accurate patient selection and appropriate adjuvant treatment based on well-known host and tumor characteristics. The incidence of microscopically diagnosed bone involvement in MM specimens and its implications on outcomes have however not been reported in large contemporary series...

Mandibulectomy and mandibulotomy procedures are performed with the oscillating saw and the acoustic energy generated during the osteotomies is transferred to the cochlea via temporomandibular joint and air conduction. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of mandibulectomy and mandibulotomy on cochlear function. This study was carried out on 15 patients who underwent at an otolaryngology department of a tertiary medical center between January 2013 and August 2015. The study was designed as a prospective study...
