A 68-year-old female presented with a right parotid mass and partial frontal peripheral facial nerve palsy. Pre-operatively, the mass was thought to be benign. Surgical intervention consisted of parotidectomy with sacrifice of the facial nerve due to the nerve's involvement in the tumoural process and its intrapetrosal course. Immediate nerve reconstruction(More)
The use of autologous calvarian split thickness bone grafts is a well accepted preprosthetic surgical procedure for reconstruction of the severely atrophied maxilla. Although generally accepted as being a superior bone graft regarding long-term stability, the reported risks in the literature may dissuade the surgeon. A modified cone-beam computed tomography(More)
A systematic review of the literature concerning robotic surgery in oral and maxillofacial (OMF), craniofacial and head and neck surgery was performed. The objective was to give a clear overview of the different anatomical areas of research in the field of OMF, craniofacial and head and neck surgery, in all its fields (pre-clinical and clinical). The(More)
PURPOSE The role of dental implants as part of functional and esthetic oral rehabilitation after ablative intraoral tumor surgery has been established. The purpose of this article is to highlight the phenomenon of tumor recurrence around dental implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-one consecutive cases of patients all treated surgically for squamous(More)
A 65-year old patient developed a sacral decubitus ulcer with osteomyelitis after a jaw reconstruction for osteonecrosis of the jaw. (Figure 1B illustrates the skin color just before start of tigecycline treatment). Based on cultures, the unfavourable evolution of the wounds, and her β-lactam allergy, tigecycline was given for a total of 102 days. After 2.5(More)
BACKGROUND A 65-year-old patient developed an unexplained and ultimately lethal metabolic acidosis under prolonged treatment with tigecycline. Tigecycline is known to have a selective inhibitory effect on eukaryotic mitochondrial translation. The underlying molecular mechanisms of the metabolic acidosis in this patient were explored. METHODS Oxidative(More)
