Modification of LeFort I osteotomy for severe maxillary vertical excess asymmetry.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Apr 13. Epub 2019 Apr 13.

SDM Craniofacial Research Centre, SDM College of Dental Sciences and Hospital, Dharwad, Karnataka, 580009, India.

A superfluous maxillary alveolus exacerbates excess of the vertical maxilla, and leads to a severe form of deformity. This poses a unique surgical challenge. In such conditions, the dimensions of the maxilla cephalad to the anterior nasal spine are normal, which limits superior repositioning of the maxilla when done in a conventional manner. Read More

Evaluation of alloplastic mandibular reconstruction combined with a radial forearm flap compared with a vastus lateralis myocutaneous flap as the first approach to two-stage rehabilitation in advanced oral cancer.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Department of Oral, Maxillofacial and Facial Plastic Surgery, School of Medicine, University Hospital RWTH Aachen; Aachen, Germany.

After continuity resection of the mandible, reconstruction of continuity with a reconstruction plate and soft tissue can be an alternative to immediate osseous reconstruction in patients with advanced oral cancer. We evaluated exposure of the plate in such reconstructions by comparing the results of a radial forearm flap (RFF) with a vastus lateralis myocutaneous flap (VLMF). We also analysed the resection margins and the incidence of secondary osseous reconstructions after one year free from relapse. Read More

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Gachon University School of Medicine, Gil Medical Center. Electronic address:

Although skin depression after parotidectomy affects the patient's satisfaction with cosmesis we know of little research about it, so we attempted to alleviate it by inserting human acellular dermal matrix (hADM) after the operation. We made a retrospective analysis of the casenotes of 63 patients who were diagnosed with parotid tumours and were operated on between January 2015 and December 2016. Factors that affect satisfaction with cosmesis, including the use of hADM, sex, age, incision, size of tumour, sample size, complications, and the name of the surgeon were recorded and evaluated on a scale from 1 (most unsatisfactory) to 10 (very satisfactory), and the satisfaction according to each factor was compared.

Should we pay attention to the aberrant nerve communication between the lingual and mylohyoid nerves?

Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Medical Biomechanics, Department of Anatomy, School of Basic Medical Science, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China. Electronic address:

An unusual communication between the lingual and mylohyoid nerves has been identified as one reason for incomplete mandibular anaesthesia, and for neuropathy. However, its anatomical features and function are poorly understood and its relations with neighbouring structures, which are valuable in reducing the side effects of surgical operations, have not been sufficiently described. The aim of this study, therefore, was to describe the communication between the nerves and to assess the implications for oral and maxillofacial surgery. Read More

Management of maxillofacial trauma in prisoners.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Salisbury District Hospital, Odstock Road, Salisbury, SP2 8BJ. Electronic address:

The incidence of injuries among prisoners is much higher than in the general population, and in the UK the number of prisoners and the incidence of injuries are rising. Maxillofacial trauma is common. Based on the cases of 12 patients, we have identified eight challenges that are associated with the management of maxillofacial trauma in this group: patient-reported mechanisms of injury that are often inconsistent with the fracture pattern, complex fracture patterns, delayed presentation, high prevalence of dental disease and of smoking, complicating medical factors such as drug use and blood-borne viruses, increased risk of further violence after discharge, and problems with follow-up logistics.

Assessment of relative uptake by mandibular condyles in a "normal" population.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Nuclear Medicine Department, Centro Hospitalar Universitário de São João, E.P.E., Alameda Professor Hernâni Monteiro, 4200-319 PORTO, Porto, Portugal.

Hyperplasia of the mandibular condyle is self-limiting, but can lead to facial asymmetry, malocclusion, pain, and dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Bone scintigraphy, particularly with single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), is effective in assessing relative condylar uptake, but we know of no standardised methods or values. Our aim, therefore was to validate the values currently used to measure relative condylar uptake in our population. Read More

Traumatic pseudoaneurysm of the superficial temporal artery.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Mar 19. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

Northwick Park Hospital, Watford Road, Harrow HA1 3UJ.

Pseudoaneurysm of the superficial temporal artery is rare. It is typically caused by blunt force to the temporal region, and presents as a painless, preauricular, pulsatile mass during the following weeks. We think that its infrequent incidence and unusual presentation warrants an increase in awareness to aid accurate and timely diagnosis. Read More

Relation between facial fractures and socioeconomic deprivation in the north east of England.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Sunderland Royal Hospital, Kayll Road, Sunderland, SR4 7TP, United Kingdom.

Patients with a low socioeconomic status suffer disproportionately from trauma, and have a high incidence of mandibular fractures. To explore how deprivation affects the incidence of facial fractures in the north east of England, we reviewed 1096 patients who were admitted to the oral and maxillofacial surgical (OMFS) unit at Sunderland Royal Hospital for treatment of a facial fracture between December 2013 and December 2017. Levels of socioeconomic deprivation, which were obtained from postcodes and the UK Government Open Data Communities database, were compared with a random sample of deprivation data from the catchment area of our hospital.

Postoperative neck pain associated with an implantable microvascular ultrasonic Doppler: a case report.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Depratment of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Musgrove Park Hospital, Parkfield Drive, Taunton, Somerset, TA1 5DA, United Kingdom.

Microvascular reconstruction in the head and neck has enabled the transfer of large amounts of tissue, and has improved functional and cosmetic outcomes for patients. Its success is primarily dependent on adequate perfusion, and though many methods have been used to monitor the circulation of flaps, the Cook-Swartz implantable Doppler has gained favour with surgeons and nursing staff. We present the unusual case of a patient who had developed recurrent infection and pain that was associated with its use. Read More
