Systematic review of the role of corticosteroids in cervicofacial infections.

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

Maxillofacial surgery Trainees Research Collaborative, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow.

The role of corticosteroids in the management of cervicofacial infections continues to cause controversy. Systemic anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects that reduce swelling and improve symptoms in the head and neck may make these agents an effective addition to the antibiotics used and to surgical management, although this same effect may dull the physiological response to infection, and allow infections to progress. We have systematically reviewed the evidence for the use of corticosteroids in common cervicofacial infections following the PRISMA guidelines. Read More

Cytoplasmic HMGB1 and HMGB1-Beclin1 complex are increased in radioresistant oral squamous cell carcinoma.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, College of Medicine, Chung-Ang University, Seoul, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

Cytoplasmic high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) is an autophagy regulator, and autophagy is important in the radioresistance of various solid cancers. We evaluated the degree of autophagy and cytoplasmic HMGB1 in radioresistant oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) by culturing the SCC15 and quasiliquid layer 1 (QLL1) SCC cell lines that originate from cancer of the oral tongue and a metastatic lymph node, respectively, and then delivered radiation to induce radioresistance to cells. We then compared the degree of autophagy between non-irradiated control and radioresistant cancer cells using a western blot assay. Read More

Intraoperative verification of resection margins of maxillary malignancies by cone-beam computed tomography.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Head and Neck Oncology and Surgery, The Netherland Cancer Institute/Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hospital, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Electronic address:

Resection of maxillary cancer often results in incomplete excision because of the tumour's proximity to important structures such as the orbit. To deal with this problem we prospectively investigated the feasibility of intraoperative imaging during maxillectomy to verify the planned resection margins. In total, six patients diagnosed with maxillary cancer listed for maxillectomy were included, irrespective of the histological type of tumour. Read More

Evaluating societal outcomes of orthognathic surgery: an innovative application of the Social Return on Investment methodology to patients after orthognathic treatment.

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

Gloucestershire NHS Hospitals Foundation Trust, 1 College Lawn, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL53 7AG. Electronic address:

Outcomes after orthognathic treatment are complex, and include improvements to mental and physical health, and psychosocial adjustments. The Social Return on Investment (SROI), a framework that is recognised by the government, explores the wider social value of interventions, but has not yet, to our knowledge, been used to measure the value of surgical procedures. To test its feasibility in a surgical setting and to begin to understand the wider nature of the changes experienced by patients after orthognathic surgery, we designed a pilot study that focused on the first two stages of the six-stage model.

Evolution in the management of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma: systematic review of outcomes over the last 25 years.

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

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Longfleet Road, Poole BH15 2JB, UK. Electronic address:

The treatment of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) has evolved over the last 25years, from open surgery to combined chemoradiotherapy, and now to the development of minimally invasive procedures, but evidence for the best treatment is lacking. We therefore did a systematic search of the MEDLINE database for studies published between 1992 and 2017 that reported oncological or functional outcomes, or both. Predefined inclusion and exclusion criteria were used for screening and selection, and 45 studies were chosen. Read More

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester Head and Neck Centre, Manchester Royal Infirmary, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9WL.

The Taser X26 (Axon) is a conducted energy device that is used by the police forces in the United Kingdom to deliver a high voltage shock that will disable a person. Injuries related to its use are uncommon but can be serious, the extent of the damage caused being related to the structures targeted and the length of deployment of the electrical charge. We describe a 15-year-old boy who had a penetrating midfacial injury after deployment of a Taser, the barb of which became embedded in the subtarsal region of his left cheek. Read More

Interproximal bone in maxillary anterior teeth in subjects with Class III facial deformity: Are there options for segmental maxillary osteotomy in "surgery first"?

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, State University of Campinas, Piracicaba, Brazil.

Our aim was to give a morphometric description of the interproximal bone between the anterior maxillary teeth of subjects with class III facial deformity, who were candidates for segmented Le Fort I osteotomy. We measured the width of the interproximal bone from the upper right canine to the upper left canine in cone-beam computed tomographic images of 35 subjects, and identified five interproximal areas of measurement. The lower and upper measurements were established 5mm and 10mm from the cervical crest of the interproximal bone. Read More

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 4;57(1):41-46. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and Oral Medicine, Faculty of Odontology, Malmö University, Malmö, Sweden.

Our aim was to try and find out whether contamination with saliva during insertion of dental implants affects osseointegration in bone that has been augmented with different grafts. Six bony defects were created in each of the calvaria of six sheep, and then augmented with three different materials (autogenous bone, bovine bone, and resorbable biphasic ceramic bone substitute) After five weeks of healing, three implants contaminated with saliva (contaminated group) and three not contaminated (uncontaminated group) were placed in the centre of the augmented areas. For histomorphometric analysis, bone implant contact, bone area fraction occupancy, bone and material area, and bony area were measured after a healing period of five weeks. Read More

Non-tuberculous Mycobacterium infection after transfer of autologous fat to the face: a rare case.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Medical School of Chonbuk National University, Jeonju, Republic of Korea; Research Institute of Clinical Medicine of Chonbuk National University-Biomedical Research Institute of Chonbuk National University Hospital.

Autologous fat has long been used as a filler in the face, and has recently gained popularity in plastic surgery with a wound infection rate of 1% - 5%. The incidence of mycobacterial infections has increased over recent decades, which is attributed in part to the increased popularity of these procedures. Infections by non-tuberculosis mycobacteria often cause chronic inflammation and progressive infection that may eventually manifest themselves as severe scars, fistulas, and hollows, and irregular facial contours.

Short- and long-term mortality and causes of death after reconstruction of cancers of the head and neck with free flaps.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 21;57(1):21-28. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

University of Oulu, Medical Research Center, Research Group of Surgery, Anaesthesia and Intensive Care and Department of Anaesthesiology, Oulu University Hospital, Finland.

The use of free flaps to reconstruct cancers of the head and neck is accompanied by appreciable postoperative morbidity and high long-term mortality, but the causes of death and the impact of postoperative complications on survival have not been well studied. We have therefore analysed retrospectively the causes of death and survival of 146 such patients operated on between 2008 and 2016 of whom a total of 62 (43%) had died by the end of 2016. The cause of death was the primary disease in 45 of the 62. Read More

Effect of hyaluronic acid on the osseointegration of dental implants.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 14;57(1):53-57. Epub 2018 Dec 14.

Kirikkale University, Dentistry Faculty, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

The mechanism of osseointegration is related to many factors, including the quality of the bone, the biocompatibility and surface characteristics of the implant material, the surgical technique, and functional loading. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of hyaluronic acid gel on the osseointegration of implants placed in defined areas of the mandible in rabbits. Hyaluronic acid is known to have an osteoinductive effect during regeneration of bony defects, and we thought that it might also have a favourable effect on osseointegration, a specialised mechanism to heal bone.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 6;57(1):12-20. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Industrial Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Girne American University, via Mersin 10, Kyrenia, North Cyprus, Turkey.

We have estimated the joint effects of two important risk factors on early failure of implants and then ranked all quoted risks by importance. We made a systematic search of published papers listed in PubMed, Web of Knowledge, Scopus, and Cochrane Central up to March 2018, and identified a total of 437 records. Eight studies met the inclusion criteria, in which seven significant risk factors for early failure were selected and used to build a conceptual simulation model. Read More

Day-case bilateral sagittal split osteotomy.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 Dec 6;56(10):968-971. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, Royal Gwent Hospital, Cardiff Road, Newport, NP20 2UB, United Kingdom. Electronic address:

In the UK, patients who have bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) have generally been thought to require inpatient admission and an overnight hospital stay. However, since the introduction of national standards on day case surgery in the UK in 2011, patients at the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport, have been treated as day cases, and have been pleased with the results. The aim of this paper was to show that these procedures conform to current national standards, and can be done successfully and safely. Read More

Velopharyngeal insufficiency after maxillary advancement in patients with cleft palate - a survey of risk assessment in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 8;57(1):58-61. Epub 2018 Dec 8.

Northern and Yorkshire Cleft Lip and Palate Service, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Leeds General Infirmary, Great George St, Leeds LS1 3EX.

Patients with cleft lip and palate may require orthognathic surgery to correct severe impairments in midfacial growth. Maxillary advancement in this group, however, is linked to deterioration in velopharyngeal function (VPF), and it is not clear how cleft teams assess this risk. We therefore surveyed surgeons from 15 cleft units who provide orthognathic treatment, to gain an understanding of current practice in the UK and Ireland. Read More

Dept. of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Government Dental College and Hospital, Kottayam, Kerala University of Health Science, Kerala, India. Electronic address:

Patients with disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) who do not respond to non-operative treatment may require invasive procedures such as arthrocentesis and arthroscopy. We divided 80 patients with dysfunction of the TMJ into two groups: a control group who were treated by conventional arthrocentesis, and an experimental group who were treated by ultrasound-guided arthrocentesis. Both groups were monitored three days, one week, and one month postoperatively and the clinical outcomes compared. Read More

Fluorescence imaging of invasive head and neck carcinoma cells with integrin αvβ6-targeting RGD-peptides: an approach to a fluorescence-assisted intraoperative cytological assessment of bony resection margins.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 Dec 28;56(10):972-978. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University Hospital rechts der Isar, Technische Universität München, Ismaninger Str. 22, 81679 Munich, Germany.

We assessed the use of peptides containing arginylglycylaspartic acid (RGD) that target integrin αvβ6 as a potential approach for a fluorescence-assisted intraoperative cytological assessment of bony resection margins (F-AICAB) in patients who had bone-infiltrating squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the head and neck. This was assessed to demarcate invasive carcinoma cells that stained for αvβ6. Specimens from bony resection margins (n=362) were defined as either malignant or benign according to the results of cytological and histological examinations. Read More

Rural and urban differences in orthognathic surgical patients in the north east of Scotland.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 Dec 25;56(10):931-935. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, Foresterhill Road, Foresterhill, Aberdeen, AB25 2ZN.

We have previously identified differences in the presentation and treatment of cancer between patients who live in rural compared with urban areas, but have not yet seen differences in those treated by orthognathic surgery. We hypothesised that patients from areas further away from the hospital face higher costs to attend and may not present with minor problems as often as those who live nearby. We therefore retrospectively reviewed all those (n=216) who had presented for orthognathic surgery over a six-year period (May 2011 to May 2017). Read More

Mitchell-Hoole-Kanatas (MHK) questionnaire: the first to measure patient-reported outcomes relating to problems with intimacy after diagnosis and treatment of head and neck cancer.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2018 Dec 22;56(10):910-917. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Leeds Teaching Hospitals and St James Institute of Oncology, United Kingdom. Electronic address:

Patient-reported outcomes are increasingly used by clinical teams as indicators of quality when assessing treatment after a diagnosis of head and neck cancer. About a third of patients report reduced sexual interest or enjoyment after such treatment but, despite that, there is no questionnaire about intimacy that has been developed specifically for them. The aim of this study was to develop such a questionnaire, to gain an indication of the relative incidence of individual items, and to compare characteristics such as age, stage, treatment, time since treatment for an established head and neck cancer, and a health-related quality of life (QoL) measure (European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Quality of Life Questionnaire-C30 with the Head and Neck 35 module).
