A case is reported of spontaneous bone formation on the maxillary sinus floor associated with the extraction socket of a maxillary impacted tooth. An impacted maxillary second premolar of a 20-year-old male had been pushed into the maxillary sinus during surgical extraction. The tooth was removed using the sinus elevation technique. After 5 months of(More)
Aspiration of a tooth in facial trauma is a known complication. There have been few reports on the consequences of maxillofacial trauma, especially when the patient is intubated. We report 2 complicated cases of multiple teeth aspiration and their removal in intubated patients. A special technique using flexible bronchoscopy with simultaneous tracheotomy(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the results of elective neck dissection versus those of observation in the treatment of early stage oral squamous cell carcinoma and to identify factors related to recurrence and survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a retrospective study of 52 patients who underwent elective neck dissection and 27 who did not receive neck(More)
Management of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis is challenging for the oral and maxillofacial surgeon because it involves the mouth opening, dentofacial deformity, diet problem, and quality of life. Although surgical techniques to treat TMJ ankylosis have improved, reankylosis is a persistent problem. The temporalis myofascial flap provides good(More)
Nasopalatine duct cyst is one of the most common cysts among the nonodontogenic cysts in the maxillofacial area. This lesion usually does not show specific symptoms except for pressure from large cysts or infectious symptoms. Surgical removal including the epithelial lining is considered the treatment of choice. There are few reports of cases of endoscopic(More)
BACKGROUND The conventional transcervical resection for submandibular gland disease has some risks and an unsatisfactory cosmetic result. Recently, robot-assisted surgery has been developed as a plausible substitute for conventional surgery which provides an excellent cosmetic outcome. CASE PRESENTATION The authors performed robot-assisted sialadenectomy(More)
BACKGROUND Tunneled transposition of the facial artery myomucosal (FAMM) island flap on the lingual side of the mandible has been reported for intraoral as well as oropharyngeal reconstruction. This modified technique overcomes the limitations of short range and dentition and further confirms the flexibility of the flap. This paper presents a case of(More)
Among various surgical methods introduced to optimize esthetic results, robotic surgery has gradually expanded in scope. As incision, approach, and operation view in robotic surgery differ from existing surgical methods, we should consider reconstruction from a different perspective. We recently experienced two mandibular reconstruction cases after tumor(More)
Herniation after harvesting of deep circumflex iliac artery (DCIA) flap is a known but not a common complication. It occurs about 2.8 to 9 % according to the literatures and can proceed to a more severe complication such as bowel obstruction. There are several factors that exacerbate the risk: surgical factors, operator factor, and patient factors. Surgical(More)
CONCLUSIONS This is the first report of mandibular reconstruction using the retroauricular (RA) or the modified face-lift (MFL) approach in head and neck cancer. This approach may have advantages over the conventional approach, especially in its superior aesthetic results. OBJECTIVE The fibular osseous or osteocutaneous free flap is a widely accepted(More)
