In cases of a difficult intubation where numerous intubation methods, including laryngoscopy, have failed, yet oral intubation is still necessary, the method of tube exchange after fiberoptic nasal intubation may be attempted. Fiberoptic nasal intubation allows intubation to be performed relatively easily when the laryngeal view grade is poor. We report a case in which our attempt at oral intubation for total maxillectomy with laryngoscopy and fiberoptic oral intubation had failed due to an unexpected difficult airway; subsequently, we successfully completed the surgery by performing fiberoptic nasal intubation to secure the airway, followed by using a tube exchanger to exchange to an oral endotracheal tube...

PURPOSE: Current nonvascular osseous reconstructive options for reconstruction of the orbital floor after maxillectomy include options such as scapular tip and iliac crest bone grafts. The aim of this study was to determine whether these donor sites were morphologically comparable with the orbital floor. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective cross-sectional study design was selected. By use of a pre-existing melanoma database (January 1, 2005, through September 20, 2015), computed tomography scans of the head, neck, thorax, and pelvis were obtained from patients without evidence of bony metastases...

Patients who have maxillectomy can be rehabilitated with reconstructive surgery or obturator prostheses with or without osseointegratable implants. To identify studies on possible treatments in this group, we systematically searched the Scopus, Embase, PubMed/Medline, and Cochrane databases to collect data on patients' characteristics, radiotherapy, and results related to speech, swallowing, mastication or diet, chewing, aesthetics, and quality of life. Of the 1376 papers found, six were included, and one other was included after an additional search of references...

INTRODUCTION: Ocular invasion is extremely rare for a primary eyelid Basosquamous Carcinoma (BSC). It can however occur in neglected cases if the clinical signs are overseen and the BSC is misdiagnosed for a less aggressive skin carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 58-year-old man suffering from an inferior eyelid BSC that had been neglected for 7 years was referred to our clinic. A local infiltration of the maxillary sinus and the contents of the orbit by the tumor was discovered, and he was managed with a left orbital exenteration and resection of the involved orbital bone...

BACKGROUND: Inverted papillomas (IPs) are benign neoplasms, most commonly arising from the mucosal lining of the maxillary sinus. IPs can have single or multifocal sites of attachment. Although pedicle location is an important factor to consider in surgical planning, it is less clear whether the location or number of IP attachment sites hold any prognostic value. Herein, we aimed to determine the prognostic significance of the number and location of attachment sites of IPs originating from the maxillary sinus when managed by a pure endoscopic approach...

Tumour-induced osteomalacia (TIO) is a rare paraneoplastic form of renal phosphate wasting that results in severe hypophosphatemia, defective vitamin D metabolism, and osteomalacia. In the case reported here, maxillary TIO was not diagnosed for 6years, although initial complaints were reported when the patient was 12years old. Meanwhile she suffered from profound growth limitation, pain, weakness, and spontaneous multiple bone fractures, culminating in complete loss of ambulatory ability and severe limitation in daily activities...

PURPOSE: Patients treated with maxillofacial prosthetics often experience emotional problems because of the remaining facial skin concavity such as a surgical scar. In such cases, cosmetic treatment can potentially correct their skin tone imperfections and deformities. This study aimed to evaluate the clinical availability of novel cosmetics-based material for craniofacial small concavity by initiating a cosmetic treatment in a preliminary case. METHODS: Eighteen patients with aesthetic problems such as craniofacial deformities, small defects, and concavities on their faces underwent cosmetic treatment that was performed by makeup practitioners...

Variant angina is caused by coronary artery spasm (CAS) with ST-segment elevation. We herein report a case of recurrent CAS during 2 operations in the same patient. An 80-year-old woman was scheduled to undergo tracheostomy, submandibular dissection, left partial maxillectomy, and coronoidectomy. We administered ephedrine and phenylephrine to manage hypotension during general anesthesia. Immediately after the administration of these drugs, the ST segment elevated. We decided to cease the operation and transport the patient to the department of cardiology...

BACKGROUND: Maxilla is perhaps the most essential and visible part of the mid-face. It is a threedimensional structure and when reconstructing maxillectomy defects the principles of aesthetics as well as the best functional outcomes are taken into account. The aim of this study is to compare the Anterolateral Thigh Flap (ALTF) to the standard option like the Rectus Abdominis Free Flap (RAMFF) for the reconstruction of complex maxillary defects. METHODS: This descriptive case series was conducted at the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Shifa International Hospital Islamabad, Pakistan from 2009 to 2016...

Carcinoma cuniculatum (CC) is an extremely rare neoplasm of the oral cavity. It is essentially a well-differentiated variety of squamous cell carcinoma and shows lower metastasis risk. The histological features of CC can mimic that of papillary squamous cell carcinoma or verrucous carcinoma. CC commonly affects the plantar region of the foot, and very few cases have been described in the oral cavity. The classical histological characteristics noted are infiltration of underlying connective tissue by squamous epithelium with keratin cores and keratin-filled crypts...

BACKGROUND: Traditional free flap reconstruction of complex intraoral defects often uses large lip-splitting incisions. To reduce morbidity and preserve aesthetics, we have adopted a more technically demanding visor technique obviating an incision through the lower lip through which the resection and reconstruction are performed. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of patients who underwent free flap reconstruction of intraoral defects over 7 years by a single plastic surgeon (C...

Positional change in the retropharyngeal carotid artery, a rare phenomenon over time, is even rarer in previous reports, and it is important to be aware of this before any neck surgical procedure. A woman in her 50s underwent an anterior maxillectomy for upper gingival cancer, without neck dissection. The patient had medical histories of diabetes mellitus and liver dysfunction, with unremarkable family histories. Serial neck contrast-enhanced computed tomography for detecting locoregional recurrence had been performed as a follow-up during 4 years...

Ameloblastoma represents the most common epithelial odontogenic tumor. Because of the proximity of the maxillary tumors to the orbit and skull base, it should be managed as radically as possible. Maxillectomy, mainly via the transfacial or transoral approach, represents the most common type of surgical procedure. Drawback of these approaches is limited control of the superiomedial extent of the tumour in the paranasal area. We report the use of a combined endoscopic endonasal and transoral approach to manage maxillary plexiform ameloblastoma in a 48-year-old male patient...

BACKGROUND: Addressing anterior maxillary sinus pathology endoscopically that is inaccessible with an endoscopic modified medial maxillectomy requires either a prelacrimal approach (PLA) or an endoscopic Denker's approach (EDA). The PLA involves removing the medial wall of the prelacrimal recess (PLR), which is the bone between the pyriform aperture (PA) and nasolacrimal duct (NLD), from nasal floor to orbital floor. The PLA preserves the inferior turbinate and NLD, whereas both are sacrificed during an EDA...

A maxillofacial patient's quality of life is distorted and social integration becomes difficult. An obturator is a maxillofacial prosthesis used to close a congenital or acquired tissue defect, primarily of the hard palate and/or contiguous alveolar/soft-tissue structures. Subsequently, it restores the esthetics, speech, and function. The present clinical report aimed for the prosthetic rehabilitation of a maxillectomy defect by the incorporation of a semi-precision attachment as PRECI-SAGIX - male part of 2...

Sinus fungal ball is defined as noninvasive chronic rhino-sinusitis with a clump of mold in the paranasal sinuses, typically affecting the maxillary sinus. Fairly good outcomes of endoscopic surgery have been reported where the ball is removed through the antrostomy. However, the affected sinus tends to have a smaller cavity and thicker bony walls. As such, it is often challenging to maintain a window size that is sufficient to control possible recurrence. The endoscopic modified medial maxillectomy procedure was applied to a 61-year old and a 70-year old female patient with maxillary sinus fungal ball...
