Is there a role for pentoxifylline tocopherol in the management of advanced osteoradionecrosis of the jaws with pathological fractures? Case reports review of the literature.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Oral and Maxillofacial Unit, Monash Health, Victoria, Australia.

Osteoradionecrosis (ORN) is an infrequent but serious complication of radiotherapy, especially in the head and neck region. It is a slowly progressive condition, with management in the early stages focused on symptom control, and surgery usually reserved for advanced ORN. However, established ORN is difficult to treat.

Mandibular canal-related parameters interpreted in panoramic images and CBCT of mandibular third molars as risk factors to predict sensory disturbances of the inferior alveolar nerve.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Section of Oral Radiology, Department of Dentistry and Oral Health, Aarhus University, Aarhus C, Denmark.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Mar 9. Epub 2019 Mar 9.

University Hospital Centre 'Sisters of Mercy', University Hospital for Tumors, Department of Radiotherapy and Medical Oncology, Ilica, Zagreb, Croatia.

Accessory parotid gland tumours (APGTs) are very rare. Regarding their anatomical location, an adequate surgical approach is necessary to provide safe resection and satisfactory postoperative results. The aims of this study were to present our tertiary centre experience in surgical treatment and management of APGTs and to review the literature regarding their treatment, particularly in terms of surgical modalities.

Prelamination of the latissimus dorsi flap for reconstruction in head and neck surgery.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Feb 28. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany.

Free microsurgical tissue transfer of the latissimus dorsi flap may be indicated for the restoration of intra- and extraoral defects, especially when a large-sized skin island flap is required. In many cases, use of the latissimus dorsi flap for coverage of large-sized intraoral defects results in bulkiness due to the proportion of subcutaneous fat. Prelamination of free flaps appears to be a promising technique to overcome this flap bulkiness. Read More

Complication rates and clinical outcomes of osseous free flaps: a retrospective comparison of CAD/CAM versus conventional fixation in 128 patients.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Charité - Universitaetsmedizin Berlin, Corporate Member Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Berlin Institute of Health, Berlin, Germany.

Studies evaluating plate-related complications in patient-specific versus conventional fixation systems in free flap surgery are lacking. This was a retrospective study of 128 osseous free flaps with a minimum follow-up of 12 months. Wound healing disorders, plate exposure, fixation failure, and subtotal osseous union were recorded and evaluated statistically by univariate and regression analysis. Read More

Is there an association between overweight/obesity and dental implant complications? A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, School of Dentistry, University of Pernambuco, Camaragibe, PE, Brazil. Electronic address:

The aim of this systematic review was to test the following hypotheses: (1) that there is no difference in implant survival rate between individuals with overweight or obesity and those who are within the ideal weight range; (2) that there are no differences between these groups regarding indicators of peri-implant health. Two independent reviewers performed a literature search of the PubMed/MEDLINE, Scopus, and Cochrane Library databases for studies published up to April 1, 2018. A meta-analysis was performed to determine the risk difference for implant failure and mean difference for marginal bone loss, probing depth, and bleeding on probing. Read More
