This study evaluated the results of curettage followed by spray propane, butane, and isobutane gas combination cryosurgery in 10 patients with ameloblastoma. The patients' age ranged from 7 to 87 years (mean, 31 years), with equal prevalence in both men and women. Five cases were diagnosed as solid ameloblastomas and 5 as unicystic ameloblastomas. Before enucleation and cryosurgery, the unicystic lesions received marsupialisation to decrease their size. No patient showed evidence of clinical or… CONTINUE READING
