The First World War and the number of facial injuries made specialized trauma centers necessary. Alberic Pont was trained both in medicine and dentistry. He founded in Lyon one of the first French specialized wards, which received more than 7000 soldiers overall. Through his charisma, his skills, his creativity and his generosity, he must be considered as a symbol among the pioneers of maxillo-facial surgery, which was then at its early stage. The centenary of World War I is the occasion to shed light on this man who dedicated his career to those who were renamed "broken faces"...

Since maxillo-facial region is quite complex, growth and developmental defect cause various anomalies. It is known that 70% of whole genetic disorders have any symptom or abnormal condition in maxilla-facial region. Cleft lip and/or palate is the most popular congenital anomaly and is seen in 0.2% of general population. Cases with Treacher Collins syndrome and Robin sequence are with respiratory problem due to the small mandible or mandibular retrusion. Achondroplasia is a genetic disease with short-limbed dwarfism due to abnormal proliferation or differentiation of chondrocytes...

Maxillofacial prosthetics is an important and recognized sub-discipline of prosthodontics that forms a key component of postgraduate training programmes. General dentists have a role to play in the management of maxillofacial defect patients even though treatment usually requires a multidisciplinary approach in an institutional environment. Maxillofacial prosthetic cases frequently present with complex histories but simple patient goals. The conservatively managed implant-retained auricular prosthesis, speech aid prosthesis and orbital prosthesis cases described in this report were completed in a postgraduate clinical residency program and highlight the intrinsic complexities, challenges and ultimately satisfaction related to cases of this nature...

BACKGROUND: Compromised wound healing in cranio-maxillo-facial surgery is a threat to the patient's rehabilitation. Therapy of chronic and/or infected wounds is time- and cost-consuming, burdensome and occasionally futile. Cold atmospheric plasma is a new approach that promises to overcome these limitations. The aim of this proof-of-concept study was to evaluate the clinical outcome of cold plasma irradiation in patients with impaired wound healing who are refractory to conservative wound therapy and/or revision surgery...

Nasal Natural Killer (NK)/T cell lymphoma, commonly mentioned in the literature as Lethal Midline Granuloma (LMG) is an unusual pathology of the oro-maxillo-facial region characterized by aggressive and progressive destruction of the face, nose, palate and pharynx. This disease is now classified as a T-cell lymphoma based on modern cytogenetics, immunologic and molecular studies. However, it is mentioned in various literatures by various names. Here, we present one such clinically diagnosed, histopathologically and immunologically confirmed case of LMG, designated as NK/T cell lymphoma in a 56-year-old male...

Three-dimensional (3-D) printing or additive manufacturing, an advanced technology that 3-D physical models are created, has been wildly applied in medical industries, including cardiothoracic surgery, cranio-maxillo-facial surgery and orthopaedic surgery. The physical models made by 3-D printing technology give surgeons a realistic impression of complex structures, allowing surgical planning and simulation before operations. In orthopaedic surgery, this technique is mainly applied in surgical planning especially revision and reconstructive surgeries, making patient-specific instruments or implants, and bone tissue engineering...

Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by recurrent partial or complete pharyngeal collapses during sleep. The pathophysiology of OSAS is complex and multifactorial. Factors influencing upper airway patency include a reduction in upper airway dimensions that can result from both anatomical and functional alterations (obesity, fluid shift or maxillo-facial structural changes), and increased pharyngeal collapsibility owing to reduced neuromuscular compensation and lack of the pharyngeal protective reflex during sleep...

BACKGROUND: Programmed cell death-1 (PD-1) is a negative regulator of T-cell responses. Expression of PD-1 and its ligands PD-L1 and PD-L2 in chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) is poorly studied. METHODS: Expression of PD-1, PD-L1, PD-L2, TGF-β, IL-5, and IL-10 mRNA was measured by real-time quantitative PCR on tissue homogenates of patients with CRSwNP (n = 21) and healthy controls (n = 21) and on primary epithelial cells. Disease severity was scored using the Lund-Mackay scores of maxillofacial computed tomography (CT) scans...

The identification of an individual from skeletal remains plays a vital role in forensic investigation as it is essential for the identification of the individual's age, sex, and/or race and further analysis. Skeletal characteristics differ from one population group to another since population-specific osteometric standards exist for sex determination. Since the mandible is the largest, strongest and most durable compact facial bone, it is the best preserved after death. While sexual dimorphism of the mandible is indicated by its shape and size, morphometric analysis is more accurate in the determination of sex from the skull...

BACKGROUND: Airway management in the emergency room can be challenging when patients suffer from life-threatening conditions. Mental stress, ignorance of the patient's medical history, potential cervical injury or immobilisation and the presence of vomit and/or blood may also contribute to a difficult airway. Videolaryngoscopes have been introduced into clinical practice to visualise the airway and ultimately increase the success rate of airway management. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that the C-MAC videolaryngoscope improves first-attempt intubation success rate compared with direct laryngoscopy in patients undergoing emergency rapid sequence intubation in the emergency room setting...
