A case of bilateral spontaneous carotid-cavernous fistula with increased intra-ocular pressure is reported. Two new methods have been performed with success on this patient during successive interventions realised by two teams (maxillo-facial surgeons and neuroradiologists). Coils and sclerotic liquid are introduced by the distal superior ophthalmic vein.
BACKGROUND In periodontal disease, interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) is responsible for the matrix breakdown through excessive production of degrading enzymes by periodontal ligament fibroblasts and osteoblasts. Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) plays an important role in tissue regeneration as one of the factors capable of counteracting IL-1beta(More)
The authors, reviewing a series of 16 at least subtotal nasal reconstructions over the past 4 years, discuss the respective advantages of the two methods, which both give good results for this purpose. Nowadays, the balance favors expansion despite its duration and complexity for the very significant aesthetic benefits in terms of forehead scarring. The(More)
BACKGROUND Although osteogenic distraction is a well-established technique, the distraction device still needs to be improved, miniaturized, and made lighter, more flexible, and more adaptable for mandibular reconstruction in adults with gunshot wounds. The authors successively used unidirectional and bidirectional devices, followed by a bone transporter(More)
Five adult patients with gunshot wound defect underwent bilateral mandibular lengthening by an extraoral device. All patients presented with interrupting mandibular defect of 50 to 100 mm. Distraction of bone fragments led to mandibular reconstruction without bone grafting and simultaneous expansion of soft tissues, avoiding free or pedicled myocutaneous(More)
The juxtaoral organ is a normal and constant structure of the oral cavity. It consists of benign epithelial nests. We describe an intraoral tumour of the juxtaoral organ in a child. The tumour was not diagnosed after clinical and radiological examinations because it is extremely rare. A histological examination revealed a tumour of the juxtaoral organ,(More)
INTRODUCTION Horsley wax® is an efficient bone haemostatic agent commonly used in bone surgery. But it is non resorbable and surgeons should be aware of possible complications, which can appear many years later. OBSERVATION We report three cases of foreign body granulomas due to bone wax. A 14-years-old female patient with an Apert syndrome underwent Le(More)
The authors present a case of a large neuroma of the hypoglossal nerve of unusual size and weight, the precise nature of which could be defined only after excision, since its cystic surface suggested a diagnosis of cystic lymphangioma. The following special features may be noted: The rarety of neuromas of the XIIth cranial nerve; the influence of the(More)
A rapidly growing tumor in the temporal area extended into the infratemporal fossa. Imaging findings favored a hypervascularized meningo-sarcoma type extracranial tumor, but the pathology report on the surgical specimen confirmed the diagnosis of capillaro-venous angioma. The therapeutic approach was preoperative hyperselective embolization then access via(More)
