Biopsy specimens from patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma were examined by in situ hybridisation for evidence of RNA complementary to herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1, HSV type 2, and adenovirus type 2. RNA complementary to HSV was found in 66% of carcinomas and 33% of non-malignant lesions from other patients. In a further study with internally(More)
The object of the study was to assess the comparative efficacy of three single doses (200, 400, 600 mg) of soluble ibuprofen and ibuprofen tablets after third molar surgery in 148 patients and aged 18-40 years. Outcome was measured by overall assessment of pain (AUC360) assessed from serial visual analogue scales, the number of patients taking additional(More)
Since early this century, when Rous (1911) first demonstrated the association of a tumour (chicken sarcoma) with a transmissible agent, evidence has accumulated on possible associations between viruses and various neoplasms. There is now conclusive evidence linking some RNA viruses (Temin, 1972) and DNA viruses (Rapp, 1973) with tumours in(More)
This retrospective study analysed the accuracy and reliability of predictions generated in patients treated with orthognathic surgery by comparing Quick Ceph Image software (Quick Ceph Image Pro version 3.0) predictions with post-surgical lateral cephalographs. Pre- and post-surgical lateral cephalographs of 28 adult patients (12 males and 16 females) were(More)
Autogenous cancellous bone grafting is a common procedure in maxillofacial surgery. Open harvesting usually results in a long scar and considerable morbidity, but harvesting using a trephine can be done through a smaller scar with minimal morbidity. The commonly used anatomical areas for trephine harvesting are the iliac crest and the tibial shaft. A(More)
Donor site morbidity is important in deciding the site for harvest of cancellous bone for alveolar bone grafts. Many studies have supported the view that tibia is safe with few complications in the short term. We know of no studies on the long-term complications to the donor site after tibial bone grafting in children with alveolar clefts. The casenotes of(More)
A rare case of multiple mucoceles in a 4-year-old boy is reported. The patients presented with multiple sessile swellings on his lower lip, with no obvious local aetiology. The patient was otherwise well. The lesions were excised surgically and histopathological examination confirmed the lesions to be extravasation-type mucoceles. The article includes a(More)
