Single Surgery Mandibular Resection, Reconstruction and Bone Graft via Intra-Oral Approach: A Novel Technique
Jameel Desai and Coelette Smit
Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 20, 2018
Challenges in mandibular bony defect reconstruction still exist. The use of compacted autogenous particulate corticocancellous bone, together with a human humerus allograft presents an exciting opportunity to simplify the reconstruction of such defects. This is especially the case when the surgery may be done in one stage via an intra-oral approach. We present a case where all of the above have been incorporated for the reconstruction of the mandible....
The Use of Allogenic Human Demineralised Humerus as a Mandibular Reconstructive Conduit: A Novel Technique
Jameel Desai and Coelette Smit
Article Type: Brief Report | First Published: December 20, 2018
Reconstructing mandibular defects after trauma or ablative surgery is reliably done with compressed autogenous cortical and cancellous particulate bone. We present the use of a demineralised allogenic humerus shaft as a conduit for the autogenous particulate bone. This technique simplifies surgery, is less morbid for the patient, the graft also resembles the remaining native mandible and reduces overall treatment cost for such patients....

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 30, 2018
Cystic lesions of the minor salivary glands are very common. These lesions are referred to clinically and collectively as mucoceles and can be of either the extravasation or the retention type. Intraoral retention phenomenon is quite common but the presence of retention cyst extraorally mimicking as midcheek mass is rare. These lesions often arise from the salivary glands, but can also originate from the muscles, buccal fat pad, or other structures. We report a case of 40-year-old female present...

Thirty-six female adult Wistar albino rats divided into three groups according to the number of corticosteroid injection, each group has two subgroups according to the time of scarification either after one week or two weeks after the last injection. The most affected structure of the temporomandibular joint is condylar head and temporal bone, followed by hyaline cartilage and the fibrous layer. The articular disc and retro-discal tissue are the last structure to be affected with intra-articula...

Lymphangiomas are benign hamartomatous tumors which are characterized by abnormal proliferation of lymphatic vessels. They are lymphatic malformations which are localized to head and neck region. They are rare located in the oral cavity. Tounge, lips, buccal mucosa, soft palate and floor of the mouth are affected in the oral cavity. However buccal mucosa is infrequent in litarature. In this report report, a rare case of lymphangioma of the left buccal mucosa of retromlar area in a 30-year-old fe...
Enucleation of Ameloblastoma - Case Report of 16-Year-Old Male
Anusha A Hennedige, Dimitrios Doumpiotis and Syed Ahad
Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 12, 2018
Ameloblastomas are benign, locally invasive, polymorphic neoplasms that consist of proliferating odontogenic epithelium (usually of a follicular or plexiform pattern) lying in a fibrous stroma. They are known to have a high recurrence rate and are sometimes managed aggressively with radical surgery which usually involves wide resections and free flap reconstruction. Here we present a case report illustrating that certain variants of ameloblastomas have less likelihood of recurrence hence conserv...
Advanced MRI Sequences (Diffusion and Perfusion): Its Value in Parotid Tumors

Article Type: RESEARCH ARTICLE | First Published: September 07, 2018
Tumors of salivary glands constitute 3% of neoplasms of the body. Clinical signs and symptoms usually occur in tumors at advance stages. Dynamic-contrast-enhanced and diffusion-weighted MR sequences have been described as useful diagnostic tools in other locations. Our goal is to evaluate the utility of these techniques for parotid tumors. We retrospectively reviewed the Parotid tumors operated by our department whit Dynamic-contrast-enhanced and diffusion-weighted MR sequences between 2012 and ...
