This paper aim to assess the anatomical spaces of head and neck region and causative microorganisms responsible for infections, evaluate the resistance of antibiotics used in treatment and compare the findings with previously reported microbial flora in the orofacial infection. Forty-two patients were recorded. All underwent surgical incision and drainage,(More)
BACKGROUND As the tumor spreads through the pathway of least resistance, the present study was carried out to evaluate the presence of perineural infiltration and spread of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) along the perineural spaces in gingivobuccal sulcus tumors infiltrating into the mandible. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES (1) To investigate the incidence of(More)
Schwannomas (Neurilemmomas) are benign, encapsulated, slow-growing, and usually solitary tumours originating from Schwann cells of the peripheral nerve sheath with uncertain etiology. Approximately 25-48% of cases are seen in the head and neck region, of which 1% appears in the oral cavity. Lingual schwannoma can affect all age groups with peak incidence(More)
AIM To evaluate the incidence of oral squamous cell carcinoma concomitant with oral sub mucous fibrosis in central India and to correlate precipitating factors associated with oral submucous fibrosis and oral squamous cell carcinoma. This paper also aims to study the incidence of oral squamous cell carcinoma arising secondary to untreated oral submucous(More)
PURPOSE This study was performed to measure the total and ionic serum calcium levels and incidence of hypercalcemia in patients with Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma (OSCC) and its clinical significance and relevance. MATERIALS AND METHODS A randomly selected sample of seventy patients of histologically confirmed Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma (OSCC) at any of(More)
BACKGROUND Lateral cephalometric standards of normal Central Indian adults having class I occlusion and acceptable facial profile were studied using the Burstone and Legan comprehensive cephalometric analyses that are specific for orthognathic surgery. AIM To study normal dentofacial patterns of adult population belonging to Central India. MATERIALS AND(More)
The surgical management of maxillofacial trauma has come a long way in the last four millennia and without doubt will go further. The principles are not new but the interpretation constantly changes. A retrospective review of 52 inpatient records of mandibular fracture patients was done for the period 1 January 2003 to 30 June 2005.
Reconstruction of full-thickness defects of the head and neck is a challenge. In this clinical study, we assessed the role of the bilobed/bipaddled pectoralis major myocutaneous flap (PMMF) for the reconstruction of large full-thickness defects of the cheek, after resection of oral cancer. After resection of oral cancer, 62 cases of through-and-through(More)
The purpose of the present study was to find, if there exists, a co-relation between presence of unerupted mandibular third molar and fracture of mandibular condyle. A retrospective, multicenter study was done collecting the data of all mandibular condyle fractures treated from November 2006 till August 2015. Data was collected from the patient’s records(More)
