Oroantral fistula (OAF) is an epithelialized communication between the oral cavity and maxillary sinus. This article describes the use of a turn over flap pedicled to the sinus membrane and harvested from the edentulous area immediately anterior or posterior to the defect for closure of chronic OAF. We describe a case of long standing OAF of 15 years duration that was closed at our unit using this new technique. An attempt is also made to discuss the prerequisites for the use of this technique. © 2012 Asian AOMS, ASOMP, JSOP, JSOMS, JSOM, and JAMI. Source

Nasopalatine duct cyst (NPDC) is described as most common non-odontogenic developmental cyst of the jaws. Despite being common, its clinical and radiographic presentation could be varied and it can sometimes be a diagnostic challenge. This paper presents an unusual case of an infected NPDC associated with an impacted inverted mesiodens and a history of trauma that misled the clinical diagnosis. © 2015, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research.
