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....

Treatment of a Mandibular Anterior Lingual Recession Defect with Minimally Invasive Laterally Closed Tunneling Technique and Sub-Epithelial Connective Tissue Graft

Vrushali Abhyankar, David Wong and Jules Mascarenhas

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 08, 2018

Surgical coverage of mandibular lingual recession is not a routinely implemented treatment procedure because of its lack of esthetic significance, which is one of the most common indications for recession coverage. A gold standard for recession coverage, the sub epithelial connective graft is used in conjunction with a novel modification of the tunneling technique to treat the lingual recession on mandibular anterior teeth....

A Rare Occurrence of Mucous Retention Cyst in Midcheek Region - A Case Report

Sushrut Vaidya, Srivalli Natarajan, Usha Asnani, Nitesh D Patkar and Adil Gandevivala

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...

Atef A Fouda

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 23, 2018

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...

Hypoxia Induced Chemo-Resistance of Aggressive Central Giant Cell Granulomas and Their Treatment Options based on Cytogenetic Analysis of Bcl2 Gene

Mohamed I Mourad, Layla M Saleh, Rehab A Ahmed, Laila E Amin, Mona Denewar and Mahitab El-gamily

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 19, 2018

Bone giant-cell granuloma (GCG) is a rare non-neoplastic lesion. Hypoxia induces drug resistance in clinical tumors. The concept between drug resistance and apoptosis has been well defined but the relationship between reduced oxygen species and apoptosis is not a one-way story. Therefore, this study is an attempt to investigate the anti-apoptotic role of Bcl2 gene and Bcl2 protein in the hypoxia induced chemo-resistance of aggressive GCG. Forty cases of buffered formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded...

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...

Treatment of Acquired Retrognathia Secondary to Infantile Temporomandibular Joint Luxation with Intraoral Vertico-Sagittal Ramus Osteotomy

Khaled Gamal Dahy, Katsu Takahashi, Honoka Kiso, Kensaku Aihara, Kazuo Chin and Kazuhisa Bessho

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 17, 2018

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders are under-diagnosed in pediatric patients, and infantile TMJ luxation is a very rare condition. Luxation early in life can cause skletofacial problems, such as retrognathia, if it is left untreated for a long time. It is well known that severe retrognathia is one of the most common causes of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). The authors report a case of infantile TMJ luxation with secondary retrognathia associated with SDB, in which intraoral vertico-sagit...
