Clinical photography is an essential facility to support the work of cranio-maxillo-facial surgical departments. This paper highlights the requirements to ensure the highest quality and consistency of photographs taken and provides a standardized set of both facial and intra-oral views that fit the needs of accurate digital photo-documentation in(More)
Ten facial radiographs with fractures and 10 without fractures were viewed by eight oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) and eight accident and emergency (A&E) doctors who were each asked questions about the presence and site of any fractures as well as the quality of the images and diagnostic confidence. Each radiograph was then transmitted over a(More)
The study assessed the dosage, clinical sedative effect, and safety of intranasal midazolam in 32 children. Data were complete for 29 patients (21 with lacerations and 8 cases of dental trauma). Sedation was adequate to ensure successful completion of treatment under local with or without topical anaesthetic in 22 of the 29 cases (76%). They became sedated(More)
As stated in the first part of this publication standardized clinical photographs are essential for planning, documentation and demonstration of surgical procedures in cranio-maxillo-facial surgery (Ettorre et al., 2006). This article expands the previously defined standards in facial digital photography. Additional picture sets for special topics are(More)

OBJECTIVE (i) To determine the incidence of thromboembolic disease (TED) in major maxillofacial surgery and in particular deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). (ii) To determine current thromboprophylactic practice in the specialty. DESIGN Retrospective survey by questionnaire of five year experience and current practice in UK(More)
Trauma patients presenting to emergency rooms (ER) in rural or remote locations have significantly less access to oral and maxillo-facial surgery (OMFS) specialists. In this case, OMFS services at four hospitals were rearranged to concentrate expertise, inpatients, and 24/7 cover on a single site. A Federation (managed clinical network) model was used that(More)
The role of antibiotic prophylaxis in patients with prosthetic joints who require dental treatment is controversial. A Working Party of the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (BSAC) recently suggested that there was no evidence to support the use of antibiotic prophylaxis in these patients. The purpose of this study was to determine how closely(More)
Prosthetic joint replacement is a major achievement of orthopaedic surgery. There has been much research on surgical technique, survival rates of prostheses and the use of thromboprophylaxis, but one issue has apparently escaped scientific rigour in favour of personal beliefs, namely the need for prophylaxis against infection in patients with replacements(More)
