BACKGROUND Histological grading is an important diagnostic tool to predict the clinical and biological behaviour of cancer. Cervical lymph node metastasis indicate poor prognosis of oral cancer. Considering economical status of a third world country, Anneroth's grading system is less expensive, more informative than TNM staging and Broder's grading system.(More)
The serum iron concentration and Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC) status of 24 patients of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) were compared with the findings of 13 healthy subjects. OSCC was found to have association with low serum iron level. More patients were found to be with significantly lower iron content in serum (p<0.05). But no association(More)
Temporalis muscle transfer is a versatile technique frequently used for reconstructive procedures in the maxillofacial region. However the thickness of the pedicle may interfere with masticatory function when used anteriorly in the oral cavity. To repair full-length mid-palatal defects in fully dentate patients the flap can be passed through the maxillary(More)

The clinical observations on 14 cases of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis including age and sex incidences as well as surgical management are presented in this paper. Ankylotic TMJ arthroplasty which include condylectomy with or without interpositional materials such as auricular cartilage and temporalis muscle flap to prevent reankylosis was used as(More)
In a search for dry socket five hundred and thirty six (536) impacted third molars were surgically removed among 435 patients.

INTRODUCTION Malignancies of the tongue represent one of the greatest management challenges for the maxillofacial surgeons as well as oncologists, because of the adverse effects of treatment on oral and pharyngeal function, the eventual quality of life, and the poor prognosis of advanced disease. Therefore, it is important to use judgment and experience in(More)
An experiment was conducted using lonidamine and gossypol against Ehrlich tumour in the foot pad of CD-1 mice. These compounds alone were mild antitumour agents, but their cytotoxicity increased when they were combined with hyperthermia. The antitumor effect was further increased by 5-hydroxytryptamine, particularly when combined with lonidamine.
