Ameloblastoma: Management and Outcome.

Cureus 2018 Oct 10;10(10):e3437. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Otolaryngology, Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, PAK.

Introduction Ameloblastoma is a locally destructive tumor with a propensity for recurrence if not entirely excised. Management of ameloblastoma poses a challenge for all involved in the field of head and neck surgery because successful treatment requires not only adequate resection but also a functional and aesthetically acceptable reconstruction of the residual defect. Methods Patients who had histologically proven ameloblastoma between 1991 and 2009 were identified from the database of Aga Khan University Hospital. Read More

Reconstruction of major defects of the jaws.

Authors:
M D Batstone

Aust Dent J 2018 Mar;63 Suppl 1:S108-S113

Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, University of Queensland, Herston Qld, Australia.

Prosthetic replacements in the 19th and early 20th century were superseded by pedicled flaps and obturators. These have subsequently been superseded by free tissue transfer which currently is the mainstay of reconstructive jaw surgery. Although malignant and benign processes of the jaws are the predominant cause of segmental defects, a significant proportion still occurs due to trauma, or even iatrogenic causes such as radiotherapy.

Microdamage assessment of bone-cement interfaces under monotonic and cyclic compression.

J Biomech 2014 Nov 22;47(14):3466-74. Epub 2014 Sep 22.

Mechanical Behaviour of Materials Laboratory, School of Engineering, University of Portsmouth, UK.

Bone-cement interface has been investigated under selected loading conditions, utilising experimental techniques such as in situ mechanical testing and digital image correlation (DIC). However, the role of bone type in the overall load transfer and mechanical behaviour of the bone-cement construct is yet to be fully quantified. Moreover, microdamage accumulation at the interface and in the cement mantle has only been assessed on the exterior surfaces of the samples, where no volumetric information could be obtained.

The functional and aesthetic reconstruction of midfacial and orbital defects by combining free flap transfer and craniofacial prosthesis.

Clin Oral Investig 2015 Mar 26;19(2):413-9. Epub 2014 Apr 26.

Department of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery, Regensburg University Medical Centre, Franz-Josef-Strauss-Allee 11, 93053, Regensburg, Germany,

Objectives: The reconstruction of complex facial defects should satisfy both aesthetic and functional requirements. In the midfacial area, the nasal passage should be sufficiently separated from the orbit and the oral cavity to avoid both dysphagia and articulation disorders and to allow unimpaired nasal breathing. In the case of large defects, the use of craniofacial prostheses alone is ineffective in the restoration of functional units in the majority of patients. Read More

Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, Monash University, Clayton, Victoria, 3800, Australia.

Biomechanical models predict that recruitment of gluteus maximus (GMax) will exert a compressive force across the sacroiliac joint (SIJ), yet this muscle requires morphologic assessment. The aims of this study were to document GMax's proximal attachments and assess their capacity to generate forces including compressive force at the SIJ. In 11 embalmed cadaver limbs, attachments of GMax crossing the SIJ were dissected and their fascicle orientation, length and attachment volume documented. Read More

Repair of large segmental bone defects: BMP-2 gene activated muscle grafts vs. autologous bone grafting.

BMC Biotechnol 2013 Aug 8;13:65. Epub 2013 Aug 8.

Background: Common cell based strategies for the treatment of osseous defects require the isolation and expansion of autologous cells. Since this makes such approaches time-consuming and expensive, we developed a novel expedited technology creating gene activated muscle grafts. We have previously shown that large segmental bone defects in rats can be regenerated by implantation of muscle tissue fragments activated by BMP-2 gene transfer. Read More

Reconstruction of osteochondral lesions of the talus with autologous spongiosa grafts and autologous matrix-induced chondrogenesis.

Am J Sports Med 2013 Mar 7;41(3):519-27. Epub 2013 Feb 7.

Orthopaedic Department, University of Basel Hospital, Basel, Switzerland.

Background: Osteochondral lesions (OCLs) of the talus are a common entity in sports orthopaedics. There are several operative techniques with a good outcome on follow-up examinations. However, limitations such as sacrificing healthy cartilage (osteochondral autograft transfer system [OATS], mosaicplasty), multiple-stage operative procedures (matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte transplantation [MACI], autologous chondrocyte implantation [ACI]), high costs (ACI, allograft), and limited availability (allograft) do remain and reflect potential drawbacks of the currently used techniques.

The superolateral thigh flap: cadaver and computed tomographic angiography studies with a clinical series.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2013 Feb;131(2):310-22

Plastic Surgery and Reconstructive Microsurgery, Hospital Quirón, Madrid, Spain.

Background: There are few references to the reconstructive possibilities of the ascending branch of the lateral circumflex femoral artery other than the tensor fasciae latae muscle flap and the so-called muscle pedicle bone grafting technique.

Methods: An anatomical study was performed to evaluate the ascending branch of the lateral circumflex femoral artery and its contribution, through direct branches, to the iliac crest and skin.

Results: In nine of 20 dissections, a small branch of the ascending branch of the lateral circumflex femoral artery was found to reach the iliac crest in the space defined by the rectus femoris, gluteal muscles, and tensor fasciae latae. Read More
