Management of radiation-exposed bone in the mandible is a dilemma many oral and maxillofacial surgeons must confront and manage. Current advances in radiotherapy techniques using pin-point computerized accuracy in combination with other advances, such as morphed imaging, fractionalization protocols, minimization of scatter, and pretreatment dental(More)
BACKGROUND Head and neck arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are reported to occur in 0.1% of the population. Extracranial AVMs account for only 8.1% of head and neck AVMs. Of these, traumatically acquired AVMs of the face are generally reported as quite rare. When secondary to trauma, the lesion is usually supplied by a single vessel, as compared to the(More)
