The diagnosis is clinical and microbiological (anaerobic organisms). This syndrome associates an acute oropharyngeal infection with septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein (sometimes many days before the lung(More)
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)

When secondary to trauma, the lesion is usually supplied by a single vessel, as compared to the(More)
