Benign symmetrical lipomatosis (BSL) is a rare disorder characterized by the presence of multiple, symmetric, nonencapsulated fat masses in the face, neck, and other areas. Typically, this entity has been related to the presence of three anterior bulges in the neck. The disorder was first described by Brodie in 1846. After that, Madelung in 1888 and Launois(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of local recurrences (LRs) and second primary tumors (SPTs) from squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the oral cavity primarily treated with surgery and to further study their relationship with several primary tumor clinical and pathological features. METHODS Five hundred of 522 patients with(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to objectively assess the reliability of the cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) as a tool to pre-operatively determine radiographic bone density (RBD) by the density values provided by the system, analyzing its relationship with histomorphometric bone density expressed as bone volumetric fraction (BV/TV) assessed by(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to analyze implant survival in patients who received radiotherapy treatment for oral malignancies and in patients who had suffered mandibular osteoradionecrosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed retrospectively 225 implants placed in 30 patients who had received radiotherapy as part of the oncologic treatment. Radiation(More)
Since its publication in 1920 by Gillies, costochondral grafts have been used by surgeons to replace and injured mandibular condyle and to reconstruct the temporomandibular joint. This procedure is currently applied in cases of congenital dysplasia, developmental defects, temporomandibular ankylosis, neoplastic disease, osteoarthritis and post-traumatic(More)
Various conditions are responsible for the development of acquired temporomandibular joint (TMJ) defects, the reconstruction of which represents a unique challenge, as the TMJ plays an important role in the functioning of the jaw including mastication, deglutition, and phonation. Autogenous reconstructions such as costochondral or sternoclavicular joint(More)
The schwannomas are nervous tissue tumors. We report a case of schwannoma of oral tongue. Because schwannomas are quite rare in the oral cavity, they are often not immediately included in the differential diagnosis of oropharyngeal masses, causing delay in identification and treatment. The definitive diagnosis requires histopathologic examination.
The authors evaluate the results of transoral endoscopic-assisted open reduction and miniplate fixation of subcondylar fractures. Seventeen patients were treated from August 2005 to April 2007. Inclusion criteria were: adult patients, inability to achieve adequate occlusion with closed reduction, dislocation of the condylar fragment between 10 and 45(More)
Upper airway obstruction secondary to the use of oral anticoagulants has been reported. In most of the cases, it is produced by retropharyngeal and laryngeal hematomas. The sublingual space is an extremely rare site for bleeding, but this constitutes a life-threatening complication, it must be considered as an emergency situation, and the main priority is(More)
Arthroscopic surgery has been reported to decrease pain in relation to the TMJ, improving maximal interincisal opening (MIO). The aim of the present study was to report the clinical outcome of arthroscopic surgery for the treatment of chronic closed lock (CCL) of the TMJ. Five hundred consecutive patients (670 joints) with TMJ derangement who underwent(More)
