The Quality of Life of Patients with Surgically Treated Mandibular Fractures and the Relationship of the Posttraumatic Pain and Trismus with the Postoperative Complications: A Prospective Study.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2019 Apr 17;55(4). Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Primary Health Care Center, 20000 Podgorica, Montenegro.

Due to the fact that the mandible is the only movable bone in the face, it is often exposed to the influence of external forces. The incidence of trismus and posttraumatic pain in unilateral mandibular corpus fractures may be related to the occurrence of complications. There is a decrease in the quality of life of these patients. Read More

The Transverse Facial Artery and the Mandibular Condylar Process: An Anatomic and Radiologic Study.

J Stomatol Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Apr 6. Epub 2019 Apr 6.

Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, APHP, Hôpital Beaujon, F-92110, Clichy, Univ Paris Diderot, Sorbonne Paris Cité, Paris, France; EA 2496, Orofacial Pathology, Imaging and Biotherapy Laboratory, France. Electronic address:

Introduction: In surgical approaches to condylar fractures, there is a risk of damage to the transverse facial artery (TFA) which may in turn account for impaired blood supply to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). In order to investigate the risk of damage to the TFA, and prevent lesions to this artery resulting from TMJ surgical procedures, we studied the distance between the TFA and the head of the condylar process.

Methodology: A dissection study was conducted on 10 fresh cadavers (20 condylar specimens dissected), involving fifty CT scans of the face with intravenous contrast. Read More

Treatment of Panfacial Fractures and Three-Dimensional Outcome Analysis: The Occlusion First Approach.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Mar 28. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, College of Medicine, Ulsan University, Seoul, Korea.

Successful management of panfacial fractures requires an understanding of the component fracture patterns and the ability to relate them anatomically to the stable elements of the skull. However, there is no widespread agreement on the ideal approach to treatment of panfacial fractures and several techniques have been proposed. Here, the authors suggest the "occlusion first" approach, a technique that involves larger segment reduction as the initial step to provide an appropriate occlusal plane. Read More

Department of Neurology and Psychiatry, Neurosurgery, 'Sapienza' University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Introduction: Carotid Cavernous Fistulas (CCFs) are a rare type of arteriovenous shunt that develop within the cavernous sinus (CS). Direct CCFs entails a direct communication between the cavernous internal carotid artery (cICA) and the CS and are typically high flow lesion. Most CCFs drains into the ophthalmic veins (typical venous drainage pattern), leading to the pathognomic ocular clinical triad associated with a CCF. Read More

Facial Fractures as a Result of Falls in the Elderly: Concomitant Injuries and Management Strategies.

Craniomaxillofac Trauma Reconstr 2019 Mar 17;12(1):45-53. Epub 2018 May 17.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School, Newark, New Jersey.

Mechanical falls are a common cause of facial trauma in the elderly population. It has been shown that the likelihood of sustaining a facial fracture due to a fall or activities of daily life significantly increases with age. Craniomaxillofacial fractures are most common during the first three decades of life; however, elderly patients more frequently require lengthy hospital stays and surgical intervention, and have shown increased complication rates compared with younger patients.

Fracture status in middle-aged individuals with early CKD: cross-sectional analysis of the CARTaGENE survey.

Osteoporos Int 2019 Feb 22. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

CHU de Québec Research Center, L'Hôtel-Dieu-de-Québec Hospital, Endocrinology and Nephrology Axis, Faculty and Department of Medicine, Université Laval, 10 McMahon, Quebec City, Quebec, G1R 2J6, Canada.

Whether early chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with fracture in middle-aged adults is unclear. In a cross-sectional analysis of the CARTaGENE survey, we observed that early CKD was not associated with increased fracture, did not modify the association between calcaneal QUS and fracture, but modified the association between clinical, pharmacological parameters and fracture.

Introduction: The association between advanced CKD and increased fracture risk is well described. Read More

Imitating human soft tissue on basis of a dual-material 3D print using a support-filled metamaterial to provide bimanual haptic for a hand surgery training system.

Quant Imaging Med Surg 2019 Jan;9(1):30-42

Regensburg Medical Image Computing (ReMIC), Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg (OTH Regensburg), Galgenbergstraße 32, 93053 Regensburg, Germany.

Background: Currently, it is common practice to use three-dimensional (3D) printers not only for rapid prototyping in the industry, but also in the medical area to create medical applications for training inexperienced surgeons. In a clinical training simulator for minimally invasive bone drilling to fix hand fractures with Kirschner-wires (K-wires), a 3D-printed hand phantom must not only be geometrically but also haptically correct. Due to a limited view during an operation, surgeons need to perfectly localize underlying risk structures only by feeling of specific bony protrusions of the human hand. Read More
