A retrospective analysis of 15 cases of ankylosed temporomandibular joint (TMJ) reconstructed, with sternoclavicular joint graft (SCG), during the period 2002-2007 was undertaken. All cases were analyzed for functional adaptation of the graft, considering maximum interincisal opening, and protrusive and laterotrusive movement of the jaw. Significant(More)
Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) of the mandible is a rare and potentially life-threatening condition which can lead to massive hemorrhage. The following is a description where a large mandibular AVM presented with torrential bleeding following tooth extraction for caries. An orthopantomogram (OPG) was performed which was suggestive of aneurysmal bone cyst(More)
BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is an established tool for in-vivo evaluation of the biochemical basis of human diseases. On one hand, such lucid depiction of 'live biochemistry' helps one to decipher the true nature of the pathology while on the other hand one can track the response to therapy at sub-cellular level. Brain tumors have been(More)
This study evaluated the efficacy of a 2.0-mm locking plate/screw system compared with a 2.0-mm non-locking plate/screw system in mandibular fractures. A prospective randomized clinical trial was conducted. Patients were randomly assigned to receive 2.0-mm locking plates (group A) or 2.0-mm nonlocking plates (group B). All patients were followed up for 12(More)
BACKGROUND Invasive placental disorders are potentially life-threatening. Its diagnosis and evaluation of degree of invasiveness is vital in surgical and treatment planning. PURPOSE To compare the role of various imaging modalities used in current practice for evaluation of invasive placental disorders, and evaluate the validity of certain imaging signs(More)
INTRODUCTION MRI is becoming increasingly important in the evaluation of shoulder pain, especially in the diagnosis of rotator cuff injuries and conditions that mimic them. Parsonage-Turner syndrome is a well-defined clinical entity that presents with acute-onset shoulder pain and weakness, often first recognized on magnetic resonance imaging scans. CASE(More)
Idiopathic hypertrophic pachymeningitis is a rare entity, posing challenge to the radiologist for a confident prospective diagnosis. The same is of prime importance as in the absence of a definitive treatment, the clinician has to initiate a presumptive therapy based on radiological diagnosis, histopathology not being the pragmatic option in most cases. We(More)
Background Post-Caesarean uterine scar rupture during vaginal birth after Caesarean section (VBAC) is a potentially life-threatening complication. Prediction of scar dehiscence and scar rupture is vital in treatment planning and selecting candidates of trial of labor after a Caesarean section (CS). Purpose To assess the accuracy of magnetic resonance(More)
Genitourinary involvement of neurofibromatosis is uncommon and genital neurofibromatosis is even rarer. Involvement of clitoris by neurofibroma can lead to clitoromegaly masquerading as a male penis. We report such a case of ambiguous genitalia in a 7-year-old female child presenting with clitoromegaly since birth, in which magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)(More)
