A linguoverted impacted tooth with orocutaneous fistula - a rare case report.

Clujul Med 2018 Oct 30;91(4):479-483. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

Dept. of Oral Pathology, MDS, Manipal College of Dental Sciences, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal, India.

The orocutaneous fistulous tract of odontogenic origin is often a diagnostic challenge, due to its rare manifestation and absence of dental signs and symptoms. The odontogenic cutaneous fistula is often misdiagnosed as a superficial skin lesion of non-odontogenic origin delaying the treatment. The diagnosis and treatment must be precise and swift to improve the clinical outcome and minimize the complications. Read More

Utility of an Anterior Tibial Perforator for Skin Paddle Viability in Through-and-Through Defects of the Mandible.

Eplasty 2018 20;18:e24. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Division of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus; Aurora.

The present report describes an alternative technique of using a flow- through, double-paddle, fibular, osteocutaneous free flap based on one perforator from the peroneal system and one perforator from the anterior tibial system for a through-and-through mandibular defect. The patient was a 65-year-old man who underwent a composite resection of the floor of the mouth, mandible, and chin pad due to recurrent oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma. The fibula was harvested with one posterior-lateral septal perforator from the peroneal system and with a second skin perforator from the anterior tibial system to perfuse a 15 × 14 cm skin island.

Successful Treatment of a Persistent Oroantral Fistula via Transbuccal and Transnasal Endoscopic Debridement in a Horse.

J Vet Dent 2018 Mar;35(1):28-34

1 Equine Department, VetAgro-Sup, University of Lyon, Marcy l'Etoile, France.

We report an unusual case of a young Quarter Horse with a large dental fracture fragment displaced into the maxillary sinus, leaving an oroantral communication that caused food impaction and metaplastic calcification in the sinus and facial deformation with cutaneous fistulation. Oral extraction of a remaining tooth fragment from its alveolus was succeeded by a maxillary sinusotomy for removal of the abnormal sinus contents. Since the oroantral fistula did not heal spontaneously following the placement of a silicone dental prosthesis, minimally invasive transbuccal and transnasal endoscopic approaches were used to encourage closure of the oroantral fistula by alveolar granulation.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, London Health Sciences Centre, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University, London, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

Both early and advanced stage laryngeal cancers are treated with organ-preserving strategies including radiation alone or concurrent chemoradiotherapy. While organ-preserving modalities have proven effective in eradicating cancer while also preserving laryngeal function, there remains a proportion of cases where residual or recurrent cancer prevails, or conversely, where radiotherapy renders a larynx dysfunctional. In these circumstances, salvage total laryngectomy is often the surgical treatment. Read More

Laser Assisted Treatment of Extra Oral Cutaneous Sinus Tract of Endodontic Origin: A Case Report.

J Lasers Med Sci 2017 29;8(Suppl 1):S68-S71. Epub 2017 Aug 29.

Department of Laser, School of Dentistry, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Sinus tract (or fistula) is a common manifestation of pulpal necrosis with periapical pathosis that requires conventional or rarely surgical- endodontic treatment in order to heal. It is mainly identified intraorally and in rare cases manifestation is extra orally, which may frequently be misdiagnosed with cutaneous lesion and incorrectly treated. New technologies such as lasers have been developed as adjuncts to standard endodontic antimicrobial procedures in order to increase the success rate of endodontic therapy while complying with the desire of saving a natural tooth.

Preliminary Evaluation of Percutaneous Treatment of Echinococcal Cysts without Injection of Scolicidal Agent.

Am J Trop Med Hyg 2017 Dec 28;97(6):1818-1826. Epub 2017 Sep 28.

Department of Clinical, Surgical, Diagnostic and Paediatric Sciences, University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy.

Puncture, Aspiration, Injection of scolicidal agent, Re-aspiration is the most widely used percutaneous treatment of cystic echinococcosis (CE). Among its perceived risks is chemical sclerosing cholangitis, a serious complication due to the caustic effect of the scolicidal solution on the biliary tree, when a patent cystobiliary fistula occurs. To simplify the protocol, we decided to omit injection and reaspiration of the scolicidal agent and to implement a full course of albendazole (ABZ) therapy instead of the routine 1-month ABZ prophylaxis.

It is very obvious that the linear stapler can shorten the operation time, reduce the incidence of pharyngeal fistula, and shorten the oral feeding time in total laryngectomy. However the stapler was used in the total laryngectomy not as widespread as in gastrointestinal surgery. In order to further understanding the function of the linear stapler device in the total laryngectomy, the stapler's composition, working principle, classification,method to use, operation method, and application of advantages and disadvantages will be reviewed.

Management lacrimal sac abscesses using lacrimal probe and crawford silicon tube.

BMC Ophthalmol 2016 Nov 30;16(1):211. Epub 2016 Nov 30.

Eye Center, Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine, No. 88 Jiefang Rd, Hangzhou, 310009, China.

Background: Treatment of lacrimal sac abscess of the traditional surgical approach may result in complications from cutaneous fistula formation, damage the sac, cause skin scarring and even have the potential for inducing cicatricial ectropion. We designed a new treatment scheme that is expected to achieve internal drainage with the use of lacrimal probe and crawford silicon tube.

Methods: A prospective study was performed for the management of lacrimal sac abscesses. Read More

Complications of Zygomatic Implants: Our Clinical Experience with 4 Cases.

Acta Stomatol Croat 2016 Sep;50(3):251-257

Private practice, Athens, Greece.

Zygomatic implants have been used for rehabilitation of the edentulous atrophic maxilla as an alternative to bone grafting for almost two decades resulting in satisfactory clinical outcomes. However, the patients with edentulous atrophic maxilla treated using this technique may present serious complications that could put the prosthetic restoration at risk. Four cases are reported in this paper, one case with a cutaneous fistula in the left zygomatic-orbital area caused by aseptic necrosis at the apical part of the implant, which was treated with the surgical removal of this part, a second case with loss of the right zygomatic implant due to failure of osseointegration and two cases of periimplantitis that resulted in partial and complete removal of the implant, respectively.

Vastus lateralis myofascial free flap in tongue reconstruction.

Acta Otorhinolaryngol Ital 2016 Aug;36(4):321-325

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Regina Elena National Cancer Institute, Rome, Italy.

In the last decade, the antero-lateral thigh free flap (ALT) has become the most popular free flap for tongue reconstruction because of less donor site morbidity and better cosmetic outcomes. However, fascio-cutaneous ALT may be insufficient to reconstruct major tongue defects, while its muscular-cutaneous variant (using the vastus lateralis muscle) may be too bulky. The present study describes our preliminary experience of tongue reconstruction with vastus lateralis myofascial flap, which could potentially offer unique advantages in head and neck reconstruction including adequate bulk when needed, optimal functional results and obliteration of dead space thus preventing fistulas and infections with minimal morbidity.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Odontogenic Cutaneous Sinus Tracts in an 11-Year-Old Boy: A Case Report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2016 May;95(20):e3662

From the Department of Stomatology of Guangzhou Women and Children's Medical Center (KC,YL,HX); and Medicine School of Jinan University (YL), Tianhe District, Guangzhou, Guangdong, China.

Odontogenic cutaneous sinus tracts (OCSTs) are generally primarily misdiagnosed and inappropriately treated by virtue of their rarity and the absence of dental symptoms. Accurate diagnosis and treatment and the elimination of the source of infection can reduce the incidence of complications and relieve the pain of the patient.In this case report, we present the case of an 11-year-old patient with an apparent abscess but an unobvious draining sinus tract in his left cheek.
