Objective: The aim of this article was to present the surgical technique and the outcomes of rectangular body ostectomy in the treatment of severe mandibular prognathism. Methods: Mandibular setback by bilateral rectangular body ostectomies combined with Le Fort I level maxillary advancement was performed. The deep bony concavity of paranasal area was grafted with bone blocks harvested from the ostectomized segments of the mandible. Results: Satisfactory functional and aesthetic outcomes were obtained by rectangular body ostectomy combined with Le Fort I level maxillary advancement and an acceptable profile was provided for the patient. Conclusions: The mandibular rectangular ostectomy remains a safe and versatile procedure with predictable results in well-selected cases. Copyright © 2012 by Mutaz B. Habal, MD. Source

BMJ Case Reports

Adenoid cystic carcinoma is a malignant neoplasm most commonly originating in the salivary glands of head and neck region. The clinical and pathological findings typical of this tumour include slow growth, perineural invasion and potential local recurrence. Up to 50% of these tumours occur in the intraoral minor salivary glands usually in the hard palate. We present a case report of a 26-year-old woman who was diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma of the right buccal mucosa. The peculiarity of the lesion and the approach we made is the key factor in the presentation. Copyright 2013 BMJ Publishing Group. All rights reserved. Source

Based on the clinical and epidemiological studies conducted among 312 military personnel of Interior Ministry troops, it was noted that the largest number of the surveyed, both in the younger and older age groups, had an expressed pathology of hard tooth tissues and periodontal tissues. The highest prevalence and intensity of inflammatory periodontal disease and tooth decay was detected with the increased age of the surveyed. Professional oral hygiene was required for 75.64% of patients with gingivitis and periodontitis. Comprehensive periodontal treatment, which included in addition to occupational hygiene and sanitation the conservative therapy and surgical treatment, was necessary for 13.46% military personnel with moderate and severe chronic generalized periodontitis in average. Based on the results of clinical and laboratory research, our focus on the remedies of plant origin is well founded, as they do not cause allergic reactions or other side effects, contribute to the improvement of hygienic condition, normalizing the immune system and microbiocenosis of the mouth, and have both therapeutic and prophylactic efficacy, which is very important for the surveyed population group.

Clinical Oral Implants Research

Objectives: It is of imperative clinical significance to define a safe threshold for planned immediate implant restoration. The aim of this report was to evaluate the prognostic accuracy of resonance frequency analysis (RFA) measurements recorded at two different times (implant placement and 8-week post-implant placement) and to determine the optimal threshold value for predicting failure risk of immediately restored/loaded implants. Material and methods: Twenty-eight 8- or 9-mm-diameter implants were placed in either a fresh molar extraction socket or a healed site. An electronic RFA device was used to record the implant stability quotients (ISQs) at implant placement surgery, 8 weeks and 1 year. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was used to identify the optimal cut-off level. Sensitivity and specificity were also determined at the selected cut-off value. Results: The area under the ROC curve for RFA at 8 weeks was 0.93 with a significant P-value (P = 0.001). The optimum cut-off value for detecting implant stability was 60.5 ISQ measured at 8 weeks, with sensitivity and specificity of 95.2% and 71.4%, respectively. Conclusions: The implant stability measurements after 8 weeks showed a better accuracy in predicting implants that were at risk of failure than those taken at the time of implant placement. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons A/S.
