This study aims to identify and distinguish various factors that may influence the clinical symptoms (limited mouth opening and malocclusion) in patients with maxillofacial fractures. From January 2000 to December 2009, 963 patients with maxillofacial fractures were enrolled in this statistical study to aid in evaluating the association between various risk factors and clinical symptoms. Patients with fractured posterior mandibles tended to experience serious limitation in mouth opening. Patients who sustained coronoid fractures have the highest risk of serious limitation in mouth opening (OR = 9...

OBJECTIVE: Perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis in patients undergoing surgery for maxillofacial fractures is standard practice. However, the use of postoperative antibiotic prophylaxis remains controversial. This systematic review and meta-analysis sought to evaluate the effect of postoperative antibiotic therapy on the incidence of surgical site infection (SSI) in patients with maxillofacial fractures. METHODS: MEDLINE, Embase, and the Cochrane Library were searched from inception through October 2017...

The management of fractured mandibles typically involves admission and operation at the time of presentation. While this should involve only a short stay in hospital these patients are surgically stable, and so priority is often given to more urgent cases. We retrospectively evaluated the postoperative medical requirements of patients who were operated on at Fiona Stanley Hospital, Perth, Western Australia between 1 January 2015 and 31 December 2016. Patients were excluded if they had had multiple facial fractures, multiple injuries, had fractures that were comminuted or in edentulous mandibles, and those who had been in hospital for preoperative medical investigations and care...

A population of patients in Amsterdam with midfacial fractures was studied. Traffic accidents were found to be the most common cause, followed by violence and falls. The zygomatic complex was the most common fracture site. The majority of surgically treated patients consisted of men between 20 and 29 years of age. In addition to fracture displacement, indicative factors for surgery appear to be age, comorbidity and the presence or absence of functional problems. 8.1% of the surgically treated patients appear to have suffered brain damage...

INTRODUCTION: Maxillary transverse deficiency (MTD) is a common facial disharmony that may need surgical assisted rapid palatal expansion (SARPE). The aim of this study was to present our SARPE technique and to report about our experience. MATERIEL AND METHOD: Medical records of all class III patients who underwent SARPE in our department from 2010 to 2015 and for whom a follow-up of at least 1 year was available, were included in a retrospective study. The technic consisted, after short orthodontic preparation allowing for divergence of the upper central incisors, in a complete Le Fort I osteotomy without down fracture, and medial sagittal submucosal separation of the hard palate under general anesthesia in an inpatient procedure...

The zygomaticomaxillary complex fractures are common fractures among the all facial fractures, and the zygomatic arch fracture accounts for approximately 10% of all facial fractures. Various routes (Gillies app, Direct cutaneous app, Bicoronal, intraoral) and devices (Foley's ballon catheter, Rowe zygoma elevator, Langenbach, deschamps needle holder, Bone hook) for a surgical intervention of the zygomatic arch have been introduced. However, no study exists that has described an effective method of surgery for zygomatic arch fractures that have been left untreated for a long period, or for unstable reduction that have not been reduced >1 month after surgery...

The great incidence and controversies related to the diagnosis, treatment, surgical accesses, and type of osteosynthesis materials confer an outstanding role to condylar fractures among facial fractures. Plate configurations, with diverse formats and sizes, may be used to surgically resolve condylar fractures. With the purpose of improving the advantages and minimizing the disadvantages of fixation techniques, the neck screw was developed aiming at the needed stabilization to render a correct fixation through a system of dynamic compression...

Objectives: The goal of this study was to evaluate the rates of complications, morbidity, and safety with the transparotid approach. Materials and Methods: A retrospective study was conducted and consisted of 53 surgically treated patients in the past five years for low condylar neck and subcondylar fractures. Only patients with malocclusion and who underwent open reduction with internal fixation with the retromandibular transparotid approach were included. The examined parameters were postoperative suboptimal occlusion, deflection, saliva fistula, and facial nerve weakness...

Accurate reduction is the key to successful treatment of bone fractures. Complicated zygomaticomaxillary complex fracture, known as one of the most challenging facial bone fractures, is often hard to achieve an accurate reduction, thus leading to facial deformity. In this study, twenty patients with unilateral complicated zygomaticomaxillary complex fractures were included and randomly divided into experimental and control groups, which is with and without the aid of surgical navigation, respectively. The pre- and postoperative imaging data were collected and then analysed using Geomagic Studio 11 software and Brainlab iPlan CMF 3...

BACKGROUND: Despite substantial displacements, fractures of the mandibular condyle rarely lead to necrosis. This illustrates the negligible role of the inferior alveolar artery in intraosseous supply to the condyle, and led to this systematization of its arterial vascularization. METHODS: Forty-two temporomandibular joints from nonembalmed cadaveric specimens were studied following injection of latex (n = 32) or India ink (n = 10). RESULTS: The intraosseous branches of the inferior alveolar artery that lead to the condyle were inconstant and often rudimentary...

The maxilla is arguably the most anatomically intricate structure of the craniofacial skeleton, and the hard palate is an important bone that regulates the width and architecture of the face. The management of palatal fractures has long been a matter of debate, and varies with anatomical pattern and other injuries to the craniofacial skeleton. We have studied 18 palatal fractures during a five-year period that were treated using 3-dimensional rectangular plates placed across the palatal vault together with fixation of other fractures of the facial bones...

CONTEXT: In fibrous dysplasia (BFD) normal bone and bone marrow are replaced by fibro-osseous tissue, leading to fracture, deformity and pain. BFD may be isolated, or in association with cutaneous hyperpigmentation and/or hyperfunctioning endocrinopathies, termed McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS). GH hypersecretion has been described in 10-20% of MAS-BFD patients. Aim of the study is to determine the impact of GH-insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF1) axis hyperactivity on MAS-BFD morbidities and the efficacy of GH excess therapy...

Facial fracture management dates as early as Hippocratic era. Comminuted mandibular fractures are one of the challenging clinical condition requiring high surgical expertise to achieve a good functional and esthetic outcome. In presence of infection and other facial fractures managing comminuted mandibular fracture becomes more challenging. Here we present a case of grossly comminuted and infected mandibular fracture with delayed presentation managed by using maxillary distractor as stabilizing agent. Using a maxillary distractor for managing a fractured mandible has been seldom reported in literature...

A series of surgical cases operated in our unit are considered to analyze and evaluate the different techniques and sequencing employed in the surgical management of double/triple mandibular fractures involving a condylar fracture. Deviating from the normal sequence of reducing and fixing the dentate segment first, we addressed the condylar segment first. A combination of different approaches for different cases such as a periangular with a vestibular, a preauricular and a retromandibular with a vestibular were used according to the type of fractures...

PURPOSE: The authors hypothesized that the risks of optic canal injury in down-fracturing after Le Fort 3 osteotomy vary depending on the separation patterns of the orbital walls. This study verifies this hypothesis using biomechanical simulation. METHODS: Ten finite-element skull models were produced using computer tomography data from ten persons. These models were modified to simulate Le Fort 3 osteotomy models by removing junctions between the neurocranium and facial cranium...

BACKGROUND: Blunt pharyngoesophageal injuries pose a management challenge to the trauma surgeon. The purpose of this study was to explore whether these injuries can be managed expectantly without neck exploration. METHODS: The National Trauma Databank datasets 2007-2011 were reviewed for blunt trauma patients who sustained a pharyngeal injury, including an injury to the cervical esophagus. Patients who survived over 24 h and were not transferred from other institutions were divided into two groups based on whether a neck exploration was performed...
