Group 3 ITI Consensus Report: Patient-reported outcome measures associated with implant dentistry.

Clin Oral Implants Res 2018 Oct;29 Suppl 16:270-275

Universidad Inter Continental, Mexico City, Mexico.

Objectives: The aim of Working Group 3 was to focus on three topics that were assessed using patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs). These topics included the following: (a) the aesthetics of tooth and implant-supported fixed dental prostheses focusing on partially edentulous patients, (b) a comparison of fixed and removable implant-retained prostheses for edentulous populations, and (c) immediate versus early/conventional loading of immediately placed implants in partially edentate patients. PROMs include ratings of satisfaction and oral health-related quality of life (QHRQoL), as well as other indicators, that is, pain, general health-related quality of life (e.g., SF-36).

Materials And Methods: The Consensus Conference Group 3 participants discussed the findings of the three systematic review manuscripts. Following comprehensive discussions, participants developed consensus statements and recommendations that were then discussed in larger plenary sessions. Following this, any necessary modifications were made and approved.

Results: Patients were very satisfied with the aesthetics of implant-supported fixed dental prostheses and the surrounding mucosa. Implant neck design, restorative material, or use of a provisional restoration did not influence patients' ratings. Edentulous patients highly rate both removable and fixed implant-supported prostheses. However, they rate their ability to maintain their oral hygiene significantly higher with the removable prosthesis. Both immediate provisionalization and conventional loading receive positive patient-reported outcomes.

Conclusions: Patient-reported outcome measures should be gathered in every clinical study in which the outcomes of oral rehabilitation with dental implants are investigated. PROMs, such as patients' satisfaction and QHRQoL, should supplement other clinical parameters in our clinical definition of success.

Temporomandibular joint arthroscopic findings in patients with cervical flexion-extension injury (whiplash): a preliminary study of 30 patients.

J Can Dent Assoc 2002 Dec;68(11):693-6

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Faculty of Dentistry, King Faisal University, Khobar, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Purpose: To investigate arthroscopic findings for the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in 30 patients with refractory TMJ symptoms who had suffered cervical flexion-extension injury (whiplash).

Methods: The clinical data and operative reports of all patients with a diagnosis of TMJ whiplash injury who underwent TMJ arthroscopic procedures from 1997 to 2002 were reviewed. All patients underwent preoperative clinical, panoramic, arthrographic, magnetic resonance imaging evaluation or computed tomography (or some combination). The same surgical team performed all diagnostic and therapeutic arthroscopic procedures in patients for whom conservative therapy had failed. Before the arthroscopic surgery, all of the patients had received at least 3 to 6 months of nonsurgical therapy consisting of anti-inflammatory medications, muscle relaxants, splint therapy, physiotherapy (specifically transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, moist heat, cold laser, and ultrasonography) and a soft diet.

Results: A spectrum of arthroscopic findings, ranging from chondromalacia (softening of the articular fibrocartilage) to moderate or severe synovitis and adhesions, was observed, as well as combinations of these abnormalities.

Conclusion: The primary intracapsular pathologic changes observed during TMJ arthroscopic examination of 30 patients who suffered cervical whiplash injury appear to be nonspecific, varying along a wide spectrum of findings.

The incidence of reoperation after temporomandibular joint arthroscopic surgery: a retrospective study of 450 consecutive joints.

Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol Endod 2002 Apr;93(4):408-11

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the incidence of reoperation after temporomandibular joint arthroscopic surgery in 315 consecutive patients (488 joints).

Study Design: The clinical data and operative reports of all patients who underwent arthroscopic procedures from 1995 to 2000 were reviewed retrospectively. Patients had a preoperative clinical and panoramic radiographic evaluation. Most of the patients had disk displacement without reduction. In the remaining patients, the intra-articular pathologic conditions ranged from disk displacement with reduction to degenerative joint disease. The outcome assessment was based on reduction in pain, improvement in vertical dimension of mouth opening, and mandibular excursions. The same surgical team performed all arthroscopic procedures. Before surgery, all patients received at least 3 to 6 months of nonsurgical therapy consisting of anti-inflammatory medications, muscle relaxants, splint therapy, physiotherapy, exercise, moist heat, cold laser, ultrasound, and soft diet or a combination thereof. Patients were monitored postoperatively for as long as 5 years.

Results: Results showed that approximately 20% of those patients who had temporomandibular joint arthroscopic surgery underwent further temporomandibular joint procedures ranging from repeat arthroscopic surgery to open-joint arthrotomy.

Conclusion: Temporomandibular joint surgical arthroscopy is an appropriate therapeutic modality for patients with temporomandibular joint internal derangements, with reoperation required for only 20% of patients.
