    Adjunctive tests cannot replace scalpel biopsy for oral cancer diagnosis.
    Evid Based Dent 2015 Jun;16(2):46-7
    Centre for Evidence-based Dentistry, Dental Health Services Research Unit, University of Dundee, Dundee, Scotland, UK.
    Data Sources: Medline, the Cochrane Diagnostic Test Accuracy Studies Register, the Cochrane Oral Health Groups Trials Register, Embase and MEDION.

    Study Selection: Two of the reviewers independently assessed titles abstracts and extracted data. Cross-sectional diagnostic test accuracy studies (or consecutive series) and randomised studies of diagnostic test accuracy that reported the diagnostic test accuracy of vital staining, oral cytology, light-based detection and oral spectroscopy, blood or saliva analysis used as an adjunct to conventional oral examination in detecting PMD or oral squamous cell carcinoma of the lip or oral cavity were considered.

    Clinical correlative study on early detection of oral cancer and precancerous lesions by modified oral brush biopsy and cytology followed by histopathology.
    J Cancer Res Ther 2014 Apr-Jun;10(2):232-8
    Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology, Subharti Dental College, Subhartipuram, Meerut, India.
    Background: Oral cancer accounts for 5% of all malignant tumors and 60% of these lesions are well advanced at the time of diagnosis. The early diagnosis could prevent a large number of deaths due to this disease.

    Aims: This study aims to evaluate and compare the clinical usefulness of exfoliative cytology, modified brush biopsy (without computer assisted analysis), and biopsy in early detection of oral premalignant and malignant lesions. Read More

    Sensitivity of direct immunofluorescence in oral diseases. Study of 125 cases.
    Med Oral Patol Oral Cir Bucal 2008 May 1;13(5):E287-91. Epub 2008 May 1.
    Facultad de Odontología Universidad de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
    Unlabelled: Direct immunofluorescence (DIF) is widely used for the diagnosis of bullous diseases and other autoimmune pathologies such as oral lichen planus. There is no evidence in the literature on how the following variants influence the detection rate of DIF: intraoral site chosen for the biopsy, perilesional locus or distant site from the clinical lesion, number of biopsies and instrument used.

    Objectives: to determine if the following variants influenced the sensitivity (detection rate): intraoral site chosen for the biopsy, perilesional or distant site from the clinical lesion, number of biopsies and instrument used (punch or scalpel). Read More

    Biopsy of the buccal mucosa in oral lichen planus: the traditional method versus the use of a new pressure forceps.
    J Am Dent Assoc 2007 Jul;138(7):957-62
    Department of Oral Medicine, University of Murcia, Spain.
    Background: The authors designed a pressure forceps, called the "B forceps," for use in performing biopsies. They compared biopsy specimens taken with and without the aid of the B forceps from buccal mucosa of 84 patients divided equally into two groups, all of whom satisfied the World Health Organization's diagnostic criteria for oral lichen planus. They analyzed the advantages and disadvantages of using this instrument. Read More

    [Incisional biopsy in oral medicine: punch vs traditional procedure].
    Minerva Stomatol 2003 Dec;52(11-12):481-8
    Dipartimento di Scienze Stomatologiche G. Messina, Università degli Studi di Palermo, Palermo, Italy.
    Aim: In oral medicine the incisional biopsy, removing a specimen of tissue for microscopic examination, represents an important step in diagnosis and management. Up till now, many practitioners have used the traditional scalpel 15 and, recently, the scalpel punch, an easy and quick device with a circle lama, has been introduced. The aim of the present study was to compare clinical effects of the punch biopsy technique versus traditional method with scalpel 15. Read More

    Artefacts produced by suture traction during incisional biopsy of oral lesions.
    Clin Otolaryngol Allied Sci 2002 Dec;27(6):549-53
    Stomatology Department, School of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
    The aim of this study is to compare the artefacts ascribed to the technique of incisional biopsy using a punch or scalpel and the influence of suture use for traction and delivery of the specimen. A total of 160 samples were obtained from 10 fresh pig tongues by four experienced oral surgeons. Handling artefacts (squeeze artefacts): crush, splits, fragmentation and pseudocysts were assessed.

    Effects of an erbium, chromium: yttrium, scandium, gallium, garnet laser on mucocutanous soft tissues.
    Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol Endod 1996 Oct;82(4):386-95
    Biolase technology inc., San Clemente, Calif., USA.
    Objectives: Lasers are effective tools for soft tissue surgery. The erbium, chromium: yttrium, scandium, gallium, garnet laser is a new system that incorporates an air-water spray. This study evaluates the cutting margins of this laser and compares healing with laser and conventional scalpel and punch biopsy-induced wounds. Read More

    Avoiding artefacts in oral biopsies: the punch biopsy versus the incisional biopsy.
    Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 1995 Aug;33(4):244-7
    Coventry and Warwickshire Hospital.
    Fifty oral biopsy specimens were removed, 24 with a punch and 26 by conventional incision with a scalpel. All specimens were routinely processed in the histopathology laboratory and examined for artefacts. Significantly fewer artefacts were found in the punch biopsy group compared to the incisional biopsy group. Read More
