PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of the surgical treatment of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) in a large cohort. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective cohort multicenter study was designed. Patients were enrolled if they were diagnosed with BRONJ and received operative treatment. Data on demographic, health… (More)
Invasive local procedures are often reported in clinical history of patients suffering from Bisphosphonates-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaws (BRONJ) but over 40% of spontaneous forms have been also described in literature. We compared age, gender, underlying bone disorders, bisphosphonate therapy, clinical features and surgical outcome of 205 cases (36.2%)… (More)
During the last 30 years, a huge research has been performed about the markers involved in the atherogenetic process and in the fatty acid thrombogenetic effect. More recently many studies have been made on the biochemical aspects of the saturated fatty acids with respect to the cardiovascular risk, in particular, the Stearic Acid (SA). Because of the… (More)
Synovial sarcoma (SS) is the most common nonrhabdomyosarcomatous soft tissue sarcoma in childhood, but the head-neck site accounts for less than 5% of cases. The authors report a 10-year-old boy with SYT-SSX1 positive left parapharyngeal SS, resistant to front-line VAIA chemotherapy, who obtained a good partial response by salvage regimen (I(3)VE + CEV +… (More)
The neoplastic pathology of the cervico-cephalic district in an advanced stage of the disease often of necessity involves radical, mutilating operations. Following some brief remarks, personal experience in the reconstructive surgery of the ventral face of the mobile tongue and the oral floor is presented.
Fractures of the orbito-maxillo-zygomatic complex are often associated with fractures of the temporo-zygomatic arcade. After a brief discussion, the authors describe a simple method to support the fractured arcade in the event of inadequate containment and/or the precarious stability of the latter.
Only 200 cases of this extremely rare disease of unknown etiology have been reported in the literature. The paper examines the various surgical techniques and describes two cases operated by the authors.
Adenopathies in general and cervicofacial adenopathies in particular are a pathology that can affect both medical and surgical disciplines. They may be found in both acute and chronic disorders, in children and in adults, and in local or systemic forms with benign or malignant pathogenesis. It is clear that the differential diagnosis and consequently the… (More)
The Authors report a technique of a conservative transmandibular approach for the surgical treatment of tonsillar region malignancies. The procedure is based upon the preparation of a vascular mandibular flap through two osteotomies, which are performed, the first above the mandibular foramen and the second below the mental foramen. The main advantages of… (More)
Following some brief remarks on the main techniques of antineoplastic chemotherapy, a simple technique for guaranteeing patency of the endarterial catheter is presented. Using a special microchannel infusor, it was possible to prevent catheter obstruction in 100% of the cases treated.
