Following radical oral cancer surgery and postoperative adjuvant radiotherapy with a total dose of 60 Gy, 71 IMZ and 150 Brånemark implants were placed in the mandibles and 28 Brånemark implants were placed in the maxillas of 60 patients between 1985 and 1995. Adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy was not used. Osteoradionecrosis of the mandible occurred in(More)
BACKGROUND Multimodal therapeutic strategies gain importance in locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. Quantitative regression grading can be traced as an independent prognostic parameter in the histological examination in many neoadjuvantly treated cancers. Various regression systems have been suggested. We propose an easy to apply(More)
Between 1987 and 1997, 275 dental implants were inserted in the mandibles of 63 patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the lower oropharyngeal level following a radical surgical procedure. Thirty-five of these patients had been preirradiated with a complete dose of 60 Gy. In a retrospective analysis we have reviewed the data of these patients for age,(More)
The objective of surgically maintaining shape and lumen after frontal sinus injuries can be achieved by using various types of osteosynthesis and reconstructive materials. In cases with extensive fracture defects we recommend alloplastic anterior wall reconstruction using titanium screens as an alternative to conventional procedures.
A comparative study was carried out of 276 Brånemark fixtures in the irradiated and nonirradiated anterior mandible with a mean follow-up period of 58.2 months. Postoperative radiotherapy with 60 Gy and 100% isodose for the anterior mandible using a 6-MV linear accelerator, conventional fractioning, and a split-course technique was administered in the(More)
We analysed the files of 52 patients with advanced head and neck tumors who were treated in a pilot phase. The therapy consisted of two courses of induction chemotherapy with ifosfamide and cisplatin followed by hyperfractionated-accelerated radiotherapy with a total dose of only 30 Gy. Surgery was performed within the following 7 days with tumor resection(More)
PURPOSE This clinical study deals with the efficiency of arthrocentesis in acute arthropathy of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). PATIENTS AND METHODS In total 142 patients (41.5 years average) were included in the examination. Inclusion criteria were a restriction of mouth opening <40 mm and/or TMJ pain >3 on a visual analog scale (VAS). The first(More)
Cytophotometric examinations of solid carcinomas of Ehrlich in mice don't show a considerable cyto-cinetic effect after administration of Vincristin. On the other hand, Adriamycin causes in the same tumor a significant stop in the G2 + M phase with a synchronization factor of 1,4 to 1,5 related to G2. The following experiment with the combined Adriamycin(More)
