Cosmetic and functional reconstruction of large and complex calvarial defects remains a challenge for craniofacial surgeons. Computer-designed alloplastic implants have revolutionized the conceptualization and approach to these reconstructions and have become a reliable and irreplaceable part of the surgical armamentarium. We are reporting a case of complex(More)
OBJECTIVE Mandibular osteoradionecrosis (ORN) is a serious complication of radiotherapy (RT) in head and neck cancer patients. The aim of this study was to analyze the incidence of and risk factors for mandibular ORN in squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the oral cavity and oropharynx. STUDY DESIGN Case series with chart review. SETTING University(More)
Bisphosphonate related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) is defined as exposed necrotic bone appearing in the jaws of patients treated by systemic IV or oral BPs never irradiated in the head and neck area and that has persisted for more than 8 weeks. More than 90% of cases of osteonecrosis of the jaw have been in patients with cancer who received IV-BPs. The(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively evaluate the use of a single Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (AO) 2.0-mm locking reconstruction plate for linear noncomminuted mandibular fractures without the use of a second plate. PATIENTS AND METHODS We analyzed the clinical and radiologic data of 45 patients with 74 fractures (21 single fractures, 22 double(More)
BACKGROUND The goal of this study was to prospectively evaluate the use of two distractors for a simultaneous maxillo-mandibular distraction osteogenesis without the use of intermaxillary fixation in the restorative treatment of hemifacial microsomia. METHODS The authors analyzed the clinical and radiological data of five patients with type I hemifacial(More)
BACKGROUND Intracranial extension and a cutaneous sinus tract are rarely seen with craniofacial dermoid cysts, with few cases reported in the literature. METHODS We report a case of a 1-year-old girl who was initially seen with a cutaneous fistula of the frontotemporal region, which revealed an intracranial dermoid cyst. RESULTS The patient underwent a(More)
Langerhans’ cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare and enigmatic clonal disorder that affects mainly children. It is characterized by single or multiple granulomatous mass lesions composed of cells with the Langerhans’ cell phenotype. Clinical presentation and behavior are heterogeneous and can range from a solitary lytic bone lesion (i.e., eosinophilic(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively evaluate the accuracy and reliability of "freehand" posttraumatic orbital wall reconstruction with AO (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Osteosynthese) titanium mesh plates by using computer-aided volumetric measurement of the bony orbits. METHODS Bony orbital volume was measured in 12 patients from coronal CT scan slices using OsiriX Medical(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate retrospectively the use of ITI dental implants used for anchoring facial prostheses in the restorative treatment of midface defects. The authors analyzed the clinical data of 26 patients with orbital defects (n = 11), orbitonasal defects (n = 4), orbitonasomaxillary defects (n = 3), and nasal defects (n = 8). Data(More)
