PURPOSE: Sjögren syndrome (SS), although commonly associated with xerostomia and xerophthalmia, can present with extraglandular manifestations that make definitive diagnosis difficult. The 2 leading diagnostic classification systems include a positive minor salivary gland biopsy (MSGB) result as a major inclusion criterion. The purpose of this study was to better define the role of the MSGB in establishing a diagnosis of SS in a cohort of referred patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study of patients referred to the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (Boston, MA) over a 5-year period to establish a diagnosis of SS...

Achondroplasia is the most common genetic form of human dwarfism, characterized by midfacial hypoplasia resulting in occlusal abnormality and foramen magnum stenosis, leading to serious neurologic complications and hydrocephalus. Currently, surgery is the only way to manage jaw deformity, neurologic complications, and hydrocephalus in patients with achondroplasia. We previously showed that C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) is a potent stimulator of endochondral bone growth of long bones and vertebrae and is also a potent stimulator in the craniofacial region, which is crucial for midfacial skeletogenesis...

BACKGROUND: The scope of microvascular tissue transfer in the Head and Neck reaches from coverage of simple soft tissue defects to complex 3-D reconstructions using multiple or chimeric flaps. This paper summarises the presentation given at the Congress of the French Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Marseille 2017. It was the aim of our work to add further elements to this wide spectrum of reconstructive possibilities. METHODS: For patients with small intraoral soft tissue defects in whom the use of a radial forearm flap would not be justified because of its donor site morbidity, but who nevertheless would take a benefit from a small free flap, we used mini-perforator flaps from the lower leg...

Many conditions may affect the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), but its incidence in individual joint diseases is low. However, inflammatory arthropathies, particularly rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, appear to have a propensity for affecting the joint. Symptoms include pain, restriction in mouth opening, locking, and noises, which together can lead to significant impairment. Jaw rest, a soft diet, a bite splint, and medical therapy, including disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and simple analgesia, are the bedrock of initial treatment and will improve most symptoms in most patients...

Bone graft procedures, in particular maxillofacial repair, account for half of the orthopedic procedures done in the US each year. Infection is a major issue in surgery, and should be of primary concern when engineering biomaterials. Silver is of renewed importance today, as it has the ability to potentiate antibiotics against resistant bacterial strains. In order to reduce long term infection risks, it is necessary for the scaffold to maintain a silver ion release for the length of the healing process. In this study, silver doped porous β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) scaffolds were engineered using liquid porogen based method with the goal of meeting these requirements...

Pain is a subjective feeling and one of the defense and alerting mechanisms of the body, which is distinguished from the body senses, including touch sensation and perception of heat, cold, pressure, etc. Pain, discomfort, and edema are very common after dental procedures, especially after periodontal surgeries, usually occurring during the first 24 hours after surgery; such pains are classified as medium to severe pains. Generally, medications are used to manage patients' pain and discomfort. One of the most commonly used medications for pain control is Ibuprofen, which is one of the NSAIDs and is a simple derivative of phenylpropionic acid...

BACKGROUND: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis is a situation in which the mandibular condyle is fused to the glenoid fossa by bone or fibrous tissue. The management of TMJ ankylosis has a complicated chore, and it is challenging for the maxillofacial surgeon because of technical hitches and high rate of reankylosis. Costochondral graft (CCG) is a common treatment modality for TMJ ankylosis. One of disadvantages of CCG is unpredictability of growth pattern and risk of overgrowth...

Osseointegrated dental implants are common and widely used to treat edentulism. Implant displacement into the maxillofacial spaces during surgery or after a period of use is a complication recognized in the literature. Foreign objects such as titanium dental implants in the maxillofacial region must be removed because they cause infection due to tissue reaction. In this report, the authors present the case of a patient whose dental implant slipped into the submental space after surgical integration and describe the surgical removal of the implant via an extraoral approach...

Azizollah Khodakaram-Tafti, Davood Mehrabani, Hanieh Shaterzadeh-Yazdi
The purpose of this review is to have an overview on the applications on the autologous fibrin glue as a bone graft substitute in maxillofacial injuries and defects. A search was conducted using the databases such as Medline or PubMed and Google Scholar for articles from 1985 to 2016. The criteria were "Autograft," "Fibrin tissue adhesive," "Tissue engineering," "Maxillofacial injury," and "Regenerative medicine." Bone tissue engineering is a new promising approach for bone defect reconstruction. In this technique, cells are combined with three-dimensional scaffolds to provide a tissue-like structure to replace lost parts of the tissue...

Saee Deshpande, Usha Radke
PURPOSE: Rehabilitation of maxillofacial deformities is a challenging task because it involves not only a lot of skills and expertise but also many disciplines working in unison for optimum outcome. However, more often than not a prosthodontist is not a member of tumor board and consulted after surgery which affects the prognosis of the rehabilitation adversely. There was a perceived need to create awareness among referring surgeons and physicians, and interprofessional education (IPE) initiatives were deemed necessary to improve this collaboration...

Jong Woo Choi, James P Bradley
"Surgery-First" for patients with malocclusion and skeletal disharmony is a new process of employing bony corrective surgery (first) without removal of dental compensations followed by orthodontic finishing (second). This process breaks with the time-tested principles of traditional orthognathic surgery. Not unexpectedly, there is slow adoption of this new process, particularly in the West. Ten frequently asked questions regarding Surgery First are asked and answered in this report in an attempt to provide an increased level of comfort for Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgeons in instituting this process in their practice...
