Treatment of mandibular angle fracture: Revision of the basic principles.

Chin J Traumatol 2019 Mar 1. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Aydin University, Istanbul, Turkey. Electronic address:

Biodynamics of mandibular angle fractures has been extensively discussed in the literature in search for the best way to fixate and expedite recovery of trauma patients. Pioneers like Michelet and Champy had the greatest impact on evolving of osteosynthesis in maxillofacial traumatology; they introduced their basic principles frequently used to describe the biomechanics of mandibular fixation. Their concept states when a physiologic load is applied on mandibular teeth a negative tension will be created at superior border and a positive pressure will appear at inferior border. Read More

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

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.

Objectives: Compression screws that can fix a fracture of the condylar head of the mandible are available. Although typical titanium lag screws are generally used, a series of headless screws have been designed for this purpose. The "headless" advantage derived from the complete submergence of the screw in the bone after fixation is the lack of irritation of the lateral ligament of the temporo-mandibular joint by the screw head.

What Is the Effect of Treating Mandibular Fractures on Weight and Prealbumin?

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

Assistant Professor, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, LA. Electronic address:

Purpose: Fracture healing relies on the body to coordinate an inflammatory and anabolic reaction to re-establish osseous union. Although many factors affect this process or even disrupt it, the role of the body's nutritional reserves is not well understood. The purposes of this study were to describe the weight changes and to identify trends in laboratory values commonly used in nutritional assessment during mandibular fracture treatment. Read More

A New Method To Reposition the Displaced Articular Disc For a Patient With Comminuted Condylar Fracture.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Mar 1. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

School of Stomatology China Medical University, Shenyang, China.

Background: Repositioning the displaced articular disc is the key procedure that prevents ankylosis of the temporomandibular mandibular joint (TMJ) in the treatment of patients with comminuted condylar fractures. The conventional procedure performed clinically is to use two anchors and sutures to reposition the displaced articular disc. Therefore, this paper introduces a new and economical method to reposition the articular disc without metallic implantation materials. Read More

Dental Implant Therapy in a Patient with Acromegaly: A Clinical Report.

J Prosthodont 2019 Apr 12;28(4):355-360. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Reconstructive Sciences, University of Connecticut Health Center, Farmington, CT.

Acromegaly is an adult endocrine disorder that results from excessive growth hormone after closure of the growth plates and is associated with significant morbidity and increased mortality. The orofacial features of patients with acromegaly are thick lips with a tendency towards mandibular overgrowth with prognathism, jaw thickening, maxillary widening, drifting of teeth, malocclusion, and increased gonial angle, all of which can challenge the prosthodontist in dental rehabilitation. Additionally, excessive secretion of growth hormone and insulin-like growth factors have been shown to increase bone turnover, which in turn leads to weakening of bone microarchitecture and high risk of fragility fractures.

Unidade de Doenças Auto-imunes/Medicina 7.2, Hospital de Curry Cabral, Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Central, Lisboa, Portugal.

Sudden respiratory distress in association with severe weight loss are unusual features of systemic sclerosis (SSc). We report the case of a 56-year-old Caucasian woman with a 9-year history of a diffuse form of SSc who presented with acute stridor due to vocal cord paralysis and required an emergency tracheostomy. She had sought medical attention only after 4 years of disease onset, presenting with a mask-like face, diffuse skin thickening, acro-osteolysis and severe interstitial lung disease. Read More

[Frequency and management of complex facial fractures-an oral and maxillofacial surgical assessment].

Unfallchirurg 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Klinik für Mund‑, Kiefer- und Gesichtschirurgie, Campus Virchow-Klinikum, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Augustenburger Platz 1, 13353, Berlin, Deutschland.

Introduction: The treatment of facial fractures is an integral part of the oral and maxillofacial surgical treatment spectrum. In the case of complex fractures that involve multiple levels of the facial skeleton associated with severe concomitant injuries, an individual and interdisciplinary treatment approach is needed, which requires the infrastructure of a national trauma center.

Objective: The aim of this study was to analyze the incidence and management of patients with complex facial fractures and considering the concomitant injury pattern. Read More
