The Glandular Odontogenic Cyst (GOC) was first coined by Gardner et al. [2], in 1988 as an odontogenic origin, is a rare developmental lesion considered a distinct entity because of its uncommon clinical and histopathological characteristics. This lesion can involve either jaws, but the anterior region of the mandible is the most affected area. It strikes(More)
Giant cell reparative granuloma accounts for 1-7% of all benign lesions of the jaw. It often arises in the maxilla followed by mandible and affects children and young adults. It is usually a slow-growing lesion. The fast growing lesions are rare and despite the innocent histological appearance, has an aggressive behavior mimicking a malignant lesion. In the(More)
INTRODUCTION Mandibular reconstruction has changed significantly over the years and continues to evolve with the introduction of newer technologies and techniques. PURPOSE This article reviews the history of oromandibular reconstruction, biomechanics of mandible, summarizes the reconstruction options available for mandible with defect classification,(More)
INTRODUCTION Fibro-osseous lesions are a diverse group of bone disorders and include developmental, reactive or dysplastic diseases and neoplasms. They share overlapping clinical, radiographic and histopathologic features and demonstrate a wide range of biological behaviour. AIM To evaluate the characteristics, treatment and outcome of benign(More)
INTRODUCTION Securing an airway in maxillofacial injuries remains a challenge and is an important objective on the part of a maxillofacial surgeon to thoroughly understand its management. PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and complications of submental intubation in the management of midfacial/panfacial trauma patients where(More)
Myofibroma and myofibromatosis is a well-recognized spindle cell neoplasm that occurs predominantly in infants and young children. They have been described under different names since 1951. These lesions are a benign fibroblast and myofibroblast proliferation containing a biphasic presentation of spindle shaped cells surrounding a central zone of less(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and comparison between 2.0 mm locking plate system and 2.0 mm Champy's titanium mini plating system in mandible fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 20 patients with mandibular fractures were selected and divided into two groups A and B on randomized basis. Group A was treated with open(More)
This study used the manual visualized treatment objectives (VTO) as a tool to evaluate the predictive value of the computer-assisted VTO. Presurgical cephalometric tracing predictions generated by oral and maxillofacial surgeons and computer-assisted VTOs were compared with the postsurgical outcome as seen on lateral cephalometric tracings. Ten measurements(More)
Povidone-iodine (PVP-I) is an antiseptic agent commonly used on intact skin in preparation for surgery and on open wounds. In oral surgery it is used for irrigating alveolar sockets following extraction. The present authors found by chance that irrigation of extraction sockets with povidone-iodine led to cessation of bleeding in patients without recurrence.(More)
