    J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2016 Nov 24. Epub 2016 Nov 24.
    Head of Oral Pathology Service, Institute of Pathology, Rabin Medical Center, Petach-Tikva; Head of Oral Pathology Service, Tel-Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Tel-Aviv, Israel. Clinical Professor, Department of Oral Pathology and Medicine, Goldschleger School of Dental Medicine, and Clinical Professor, Department of Pathology, Sackler School of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel.

    Application of a non-invasive reference headband and a surgical splint for intraoperative paediatric navigation.
    Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2017 Mar 3;46(3):360-362. Epub 2016 Sep 3.
    Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, General Hospital Sint-Jan Bruges-Ostend, Brugge, Belgium.
    The key to the success of surgical navigation based on computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) planning is the registration process. This has to be precise and adapted to the surgical needs. However, the application of a conventional rigid skull-fixed navigation star for accurate registration is limited for use in the paediatric population, because of the risk of unstable fixation, dural perforation, and intracranial bleeding.

    Professor and PG Guide, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology and Microbiology, Padmashree Dr D Y Patil Dental College and Hospital , Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, India .
    Introduction: In the WHO classification of odontogenic tumours, hard tissue formation has been considered as a sub-classification however, this parameter has not been much explored in dental follicle in literature. Epithelial-mesenchymal interactions play an important role in odontogenesis and its associated pathologies; therefore research on dental follicle should also include mesenchymal components along with epithelial components. Additionally, special stains to identify the nature of such depositions in dental follicle have been less explored. Read More
