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)
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)
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)
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 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)

Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a malignant mesenchymal tumor arising from the embryonal muscle cells (rhabdomyoblasts), and is the most common soft tissue sarcoma in children and young adults accounting for 4-6% of all malignancies in this age group. Though rare overall, embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma is the most common malignancy arising in the pediatric female(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)
We report two infants presenting with unilateral congenital facial palsy since birth. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in both the cases revealed complete unilateral aplasia of facial nerve. To our knowledge, this is the first reported MR depiction of nonsyndromic isolated facial nerve aplasia. Imaging features and the pertinent anatomy is discussed along(More)
