BACKGROUND Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis due to undiagnosed condylar fractures has a high incidence in India compared to western countries. We evaluated the demographics, injury pattern, hospital reporting and referral pattern of undiagnosed condylar fractures complicating TMJ ankylosis in northern India. METHODS We did a retrospective analysis(More)
INTRODUCTION Langer-Giedion syndrome (trichorhinophalangeal syndrome type II) is an extremely rare disorder characterized by dysmorphic facial features, multiple exostoses, mental retardation and digit deformities. We report the first case of any maxillofacial pathology in such a syndromic patient. CASE PRESENTATION A 22-year-old Indian woman with mild(More)
We describe the use of a piezoelectric osteotome for removal of bone in patients with ankylosis of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and its advantages over conventional techniques. We studied 35 patients with ankylosis of 62 TMJ (27 bilateral and 8 unilateral, 2 recurrent) who were treated by gap arthroplasty between 1 January 2011 and 31 December 2012. We(More)
Trauma management has evolved significantly in the past few decades thereby reducing mortality in the golden hour. However, challenges remain, and one such area is maxillofacial injuries in a polytrauma patient. Severe injuries to the maxillofacial region can complicate the early management of a trauma patient owing to the regions proximity to the brain,(More)
AIM To retrospectively evaluate neurosensory disturbance (NSD) after bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO). MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective review was carried out to assess inferior alveolar nerve function in patients treated by BSSO from 2010 to 2013. All patients included in the study were assessed using objective (cotton swabs and pin prick(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the success of autogenous transplantation of embedded/impacted third molars harvested using piezosurgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective pilot study enrolled 20 healthy patients with non-restorable first/second molars and a caries-free retrievable embedded/impacted third molar. Piezosurgery was used for removing(More)
Hypertrophic pachymeningitis is a rare inflammatory process that causes thickening of the dura mater. Most cases are idiopathic, but it can result from many inflammatory and infective conditions. We present a case of pachymeningitis of the cavernous sinus, the aetiology of which may have been dental.
AIM We report our experience with the use of 1.7 mm 3-dimentional (3D) strut plate for the management of mandibular angle fractures. METHODS This prospective study enrolled 15 patients in whom mandibular angle fractures were treated with 1.7 mm 3D plate using trans-buccal trochar. Patients were evaluated at 72 h, 2 weeks, 6 weeks and 12 weeks for fracture(More)
A number of surgical treatment modalities have been described in literature for closure of oro-antral communications. None of the methods however provide for immediate prosthetic rehabilitation of the communication site. We describe a case of oro-antral communication treated using autogenous third molar transplantation. At 18 months of follow-up, the(More)
AIM The aim of this cross-sectional study was to assess knowledge regarding autogenous tooth transplantation among oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) residents in India. STUDY DESIGN The sample of the survey consisted of Indian OMFS post-graduate residents attending the "1st Asian Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery PG Convention" held from 29th to 31st(More)
