Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a relatively common disorder whose cause is still unknown. Oral cancer is preceded in most cases by pre malignant lesions-leukoplasia, submucous fibrosis and lichen planus. Free radicals and reactive oxygen species play important roles in both pathogenesis of lichen planus and carcinogenesis. Thus monitoring systemic and saliva(More)
Large lower lip defects are very difficult to reconstruct and obtain an aesthetic appearance and an acceptable function. The reconstructive aims are to restore the oral lining, the external cheek, oral competence, and function (i.e., articulation, speech, and mastication). This study presents the authors' approach to simultaneous reconstruction of complex(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in the temporomandibular joint morphology, regarding the relation between mandibular condyle and fossa, after bilateral sagittal split osteotomy in Angle class III dentomaxillary anomalies. Preserving the preoperative position of the condyle during sagittal split osteotomy is considered important to obtain(More)
Odontogenic acute mediastinitis is an polymicrobial infections caused in most cases by gram negative and anaerobic germs. The odontogenic origin of the cases in this study was based on anamnestic inquiry of the patients, which reveales a dental treatment 7-15 days before the diagnosis of acute mediastinitis was established. Clinical features are often(More)
METHODS This study evaluates the clinical efficiency of four regimens of antibiotic prophylaxis against wound infection in aseptic oral and maxillofacial surgery that does not involve implantation of foreign material and included 140 adult patients randomly distributed into four groups.

Amoxicillin-Ac.-Clavulanic i. v. wurde in Gruppe 1 präoperativ in einer 1-maligen Dosis, in Gruppe 2 5 Tage lang verabreicht. Cefazolin wurde in Gruppe(More)
Photodynamic therapy is an emerging method for local destruction of tissue by generating toxic oxygen species using light absorbed by an administered or an endogenously generated photosensitiser. It is a promising treatment for patients with cancer. More recently it has found increasing use as a method of therapy for non-cancerous illnesses. Following(More)
An important criterion in the diagnostic and therapeutic assessment of severe true mandibular prognathia (characterized by excessive growth of the mandible and hiperdivergent facial growth pattern) is the orientation of the occlusal plane compared with the facial benchmark represented by the Frankfurt horizontal line. This is because orthognatic surgery in(More)
