- Malignant tumours of the parotid gland: management of the neck (including the clinically negative neck) and a literature reviewby G. Dell'Aversana Orabona, G. Salzano, V. Abbate, P. Bonavolontà, U. Committeri, F. Seidita, M. Petrocelli, T. Somma, G. Improta, L.A. Vaira, G. Iaconetta, L. Califano on 03/05/2021 at 12:00 am
Major salivary gland malignancies are rare, constituting 1%-3% of head-neck tumours. The surgical management of the clinically negative neck (cN0) does not have a univocal consensus yet. We have carried out a retrospective study on 119 cases of malignant parotid tumours that were surgically treated between January 1999 and January 2014. Our aim was to analyse preoperative findings (cytotype, cTNM) and to correlate these with postoperative results (grading, histotype, occult neck metastasis) in patients with parotid tumours to obtain an appropriate indication for neck management.
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the placement of dental implants in irradiated patients: systematic review and meta-analysisby A.F. Benites Condezo, R.Z. Araujo, D.H. Koga, M.M. Curi, C.L. Cardoso on 03/05/2021 at 12:00 am
This study was a systematic review with meta-analysis to evaluate the influence of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) on the survival of dental implants placed in patients who had had radiotherapy for cancer of the head and neck. A systematic literature search was conducted using the PubMed/Medline, Science Direct, Embase and the Cochrane Library, between January 1985 and July 2018. The study observed the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic review and Meta-Analysis) declaration and norms, and the systematic review was duly recorded in the PROSPERO (International prospective register of systematic reviews) database.
- Risk factors for bad splits during sagittal split ramus osteotomy: a retrospective study of 964 casesby N. Jiang, M. Wang, R. Bi, G. Wu, S. Zhu, Y. Liu on 03/05/2021 at 12:00 am
To identify the potential risk factors for bad splits, we calculated the incidence of bad splits from 484 patients with 964 cases of sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) and investigated the association between the occurrence of bad splits and risk factors such as gender, patients’ age, class of occlusion, unimaxillary or bimaxillary surgery, presence of the lower third molar, thickness of the ascending ramus, and the distance from the mandibular canal to the buccal cortical bone. The results showed that 40 sides (4.149%) with bad splits occurred in 36 patients (7.438%).
- BAOMS Surgery Prize 2019 Citation for Mr Niall M H McLeodby Elizabeth A Gruber, Niall MH McLeod on 03/05/2021 at 12:00 am
Niall Mark Hamilton McLeod was born in Hamburg, Germany on 8 June 1971 to Ian and Marion McLeod. Ian’s pursuit of career opportunities led the McLeod family to relocate several times and by the age of 5, Niall had lived in Germany, France, Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo), and Canada. After attending local primary schools, Niall boarded with his brother, Euan, at Rannoch School in Perthshire, Scotland. Being in the middle of nowhere, weekends were spent trekking across the highlands, or playing sports, most notably cross-country skiing where he came 3rd at Scottish schools under 16 s.
- The potential no man’s land for the 4th year dental graduateby Tristan Bradshaw, Daryl R.P. Godden, Margaret J. Coyle, Bart Finley, Iffy Beaumont, Andrea N. Beech on 01/05/2021 at 12:00 am
The Royal College of Surgeons of England stipulates that to hold a substantive specialty or associate specialist (SAS) grade post a person must be a minimum of 4 years post-graduation and have at least 2 years’ experience in their chosen speciality. We have noticed an increasing number of excellent applications for specialty doctor adverts posted by our trust without the necessary 4 years of post-graduate experience. Many of these applicants who do not comply with the RCS stipulations may be forced to take a job outside of their chosen career path.
- The Use of Computer Aided Three-Dimensional Prototyping to Surgically Assist in Tooth Autotransplantationby Jason Tong, Ben Rahmel, Jen-Ti (Rachel) Hsieh, Geoffrey Findlay on 01/05/2021 at 12:00 am
Autotransplantation is a surgical technique where a donor tooth belonging to the same individual is re-positioned into a surgically prepared socket or a site of a previous tooth extraction. This procedure is beneficial in patients with teeth affected by agenesis, trauma, significant caries, non-restorable condition or are prognostically poor due to other pathology. Autotransplantation is particularly useful in paediatric patients as properly transplanted teeth have a vital periodontium that allow for continuous growth and functional adaptation leading to preservation of the alveolar ridge.

- Response to letter regarding Clinical Outcomes of Nerve Repair 10.1016/j.bjoms.2020.07.005by Simon James Atkins, Elena Kyriakidou on 26/04/2021 at 12:00 am
We would like to thank you for our interest in our paper. We would agree that surgery at one month post-injury would be rarely indicated, as a significant proportion of injuries may recover either fully, or to a level where surgery would not be beneficial to a patient. Our suggested management protocol, suggests that if ‘limited or no recovery’ is seen one month post-injury, referral should be made for assessment to a specialist centre such as ours. As highlighted in our paper, in the United Kingdom, many patients have seen significant delay in referral, assessment, and surgery and earlier referrals for poorly recovering injuries would allow for any indicated surgery to be undertaken at an earlier stage (3-6 months).
- A pilot study to evaluate safety culture perception in the operating theatres of an acute NHS Trust using the National Air Traffic Services (NATS) Appby Peter A. Brennan, Ayesha Dalal, John Knighton, Richard Jones, Rachel Oeppen on 23/04/2021 at 12:00 am
An area critical to safety in an organization is the perceived and actual culture. National Air Traffic Services (NATS) work closely with large safety-critical industries including various aviation companies to enable them to identify strengths and vulnerabilities with an aim to improving safe practice. NATS have developed a simple free downloadable self-assessment App that individuals can use to assess their own culture perception in their organization. The App has 16 questions arranged in four domains but to our knowledge it has not been used to date in healthcare.

- Re: Clinical outcomes of lingual nerve repairby Nadeena Sri Swarnagupta Jayasuriya, Sakuntha Ratnapreya, Irosha Rukmali Perera, Loshan Senarathna on 20/04/2021 at 12:00 am
It is with great enthusiasm we read the article written by Atkins and Kyriakidou, 20201 regarding the promising clinical outcomes of lingual nerve repair among a case series of 114 patients. As substantiated by the evidence, authors concluded that lingual nerve repair contributed to good sensory outcomes and significant improvements in the incidence and degree of neuropathic pain among patients of all ages despite being delayed. However, in our practice, we found patients who regained a reasonable degree of sensation were willing to accept and did not suffer neurological pain.
- CT-guided transfacial buccal space core biopsy of deep head and neck space lesions: Our experienceby M Couzins, R Ali, O Mitchell, PA Brennan, J Bekker on 20/04/2021 at 12:00 am

- Photogrammetric analysis of patients with facial palsy and its correlation with the Sunnybrook Facial Grading Systemby Ioannis Kyriazidis, Juan Enrique Berner, Toby Brann, Hui Yu, Charles Nduka on 09/04/2021 at 12:00 am
No consensus has been reached on an ideal method to objectively measure facial palsy, especially for patients with synkinesis1,2. We previously reported the use of landmarks to photogrammetrically assess ocular synkinesis3 and smile excursion in healthy individuals4. These include: the angle between the commissure, contralateral commissure and ipsilateral endocanthion (CCE); eye surface area (ESA); and midline to commissure distance (MCD). The aim of this study was to compare affected and non-affected hemi-faces of patients with facial palsy using these landmarks and assess its correlation with Sunnybrook Facial Grading System scores.
- Evaluation of alveolar process resorption after tooth extraction using the socket shield technique without immediate implant installation: A randomized controlled clinical trialby Getúlio Batista de Oliveira, Iêda Margarida Cruzoé Rebello, Kátia Montanha Andrade, Nara Santos Araujo, Jean Nunes dos Santos, Patricia Ramos Cury on 08/04/2021 at 12:00 am

Odontogenic Keratocysts are benign, developmental, locally aggressive odontogenic cystic lesions with a high risk of recurrence. As such, the most effective treatment modalities remain controversial. The mainstay of treatment remains enucleation with or without decompression. The use of adjunctive therapies is widely reported.
- The Use of Augmented Reality Navigation to Optimize the Surgical Management of Craniofacial Fibrous Dysplasiaby Yuan Gao, Kai Liu, Li Lin, Xudong Wang, Le Xie on 31/03/2021 at 12:00 am
To apply an augmented reality (AR) navigation technique based on a head- mounted display in the treatment of craniofacial fibrous dysplasia and to explore the feasibility and the value of AR in craniofacial surgery. With preoperative planning and three-dimensional simulation, the normal anatomic contours of the deformed area were recreated by superimposing the unaffected side onto the affected side. We completed the recontouring procedures in real time with the aid of an AR navigation system. The surgical outcome was assessed by superimposing the post-operative computed tomography images onto the pre-operative virtual plan.

We did not know what we were getting ourselves in for, but it was an experience like no other.
- Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis of the Temporomandibular Joint – no longer the forgotten jointby Kaisha Patel, Barbara Gerber, Kathryn Bailey, Nadeem R. Saeed on 31/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) of the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is a frequent occurrence in children, with an increasing awareness of the condition in all healthcare professionals. TMJ involvement presents a challenge in both diagnosis and treatment as late presentation can still occur as the disease often develops asymptomatically. This can result in facial deformity and/or functional difficulties including obstructive sleep apnoea. Early diagnosis is therefore essential, requiring a high index of clinical suspicion coupled with the judicious use of gadolinium contrast MRI.
- Prospective observational study on the clinical behavior of dental implants in patients with hemophilia. Preliminary resultsby Patricio Cesar Gatti, Miryam Parreira, Agustina Gutierrez Fillol, Ariel Gualtieri, Sebastián Ariel Puia on 31/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Hemophilia is a recessive congenital hereditary hemorrhagic disorder characterized by the decrease in or absence of the functional activity of factor VIII (Hemophilia A) or factor IX (Hemophilia B). The hematological medical treatment for these patients is systemic replacement therapy with factor VIII or factor IX concentrates. Dental implants are considered the gold standard for the replacement of missing teeth. There is no evidence or safe protocol for their use in patients with hemophilia. The objective of this study was to evaluate the clinical osseointegration and the incidence of postoperative bleeding in patients with hemophilia.

Clinical and MRI features were analyzed and divided into three types based on MRI classification: type I with loose bodies, type II with homogeneous masses and type III with a mixture of loose bodies and homogeneous masses. All SCs occurred in the superior compartment of the TMJ. There were 2 patients (14%) categorized as type I, 5 patients (36%) as type II and 7 patients (50%) as type III.
- Dermal metastases in oral cancer after curative treatment - A single institution cohort studyby Avinash Chaitanya S, Anil Kumar A, Pooja Dalakoti, Madhu Narayana B, Sravan Kumar, Jonathan G.T., T. Subramanyeshwar Rao, L.M. Chandra Sekhara Rao S, Hemantkumar Nemade on 29/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Dermal metastasis (DM), by definition, is the involvement of the skin by cancer cells originating from cancer elsewhere in the body. They are considered as rare site of distant failure in head and neck cancers. They are bearers of poor outcomes. There is a limited literature available regarding dermal metastases. This study was undertaken to analyse the factors associated with incidence and outcomes.
- Pilot of the Patient Concerns Inventory – Ward Discharge in Patients following major reconstructive surgery for head and neck cancerby J. Indoe, S. Lane, K. Davies, S.N. Rogers on 28/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Planning discharge from hospital following microvascular free-tissue surgery can be complex and challenging. Planning involves the patient, carers, and multiple health professionals. Poor communication and expectations can delay discharge or give a suboptimal discharge process. It was hypothesised that prompt-list modelled along the principals of the Patient Concerns Inventory (PCI) could be help in discharge planning. The aim of this study was to define the items and format of a PCI-Ward Discharge (PCI-WD) and undertake a small pilot.
- The role of illicit drugs in developing medication-related osteonecrosis (MRONJ): a systematic reviewby R. Sacco, R. Ball, E. Barry, O. Akintola on 28/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) is a challenging condition to treat. It has primarily been associated with anti-resorptive and anti-angiogenic drugs, which are increasingly being used to prevent adverse skeletally-related complications in patients with cancer and bone pathologies. Although these medications have been proven to cause osteonecrosis of the jaws (ONJ) there are also a number of other drugs that could potentially cause this condition. The aim of this systematic review is to ascertain whether there is an associated risk of osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) in recreational drug users (RDU).

- A transfacial lithotomy approach to intraparenchymal stones in submandibular gland: our primary explorationby Lisong Xie, Yiping Pu, Chuangqi Yu, Xiaohu Zhang, Lingyan Zheng on 25/03/2021 at 12:00 am
The article describes our exploration of the transfacial sialolithotomyapproach to intraparenchymal stones in the submandibular gland assisted with sialendoscopy and gland preservation. 5 patients with large intraparenchymal stones in submandibular gland were included. Ultrasonography and computer tomography (CT) scans were performed to locate the stones. As the large intraparenchymal stones failed to retrieve throughout endoscope, patients were treated by a transfacial lithotomy approach with sialendoscopy.
- A surgical instrument to improve implant positioning in orbital reconstruction: a feasibility studyby R. Schreurs, L. Dubois, C. Klop, L.F.M. Beenen, P.E.M.H. Habets, T.J.J. Maal, A.G. Becking on 25/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Adequate positioning of an orbital implant during orbital reconstruction surgery is mandatory for restoration of the pre-traumatised anatomy, but visual appraisal of the implant’s position is limited by the keyhole access and protruding soft-tissues. A positioning instrument, that attaches to the implant, was designed to provide feedback outside the orbit. The goal of this study was to evaluate the effect on implant positioning accuracy of the instrument workflow compared to visual appraisal. Ten orbits in five human cadaver heads were reconstructed twice: once using visual appraisal and once using the instrument workflow.
- A systematic review of medication related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) in patients undergoing only antiangiogenic drug therapy: surgery or conservative therapy?by Roberto Sacco, Julian Woolley, Ginal Patel, Monica Diuana Calasans-Maia, Julian Yates on 24/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Osteonecrosis of the jaw is a severe adverse condition affecting patients exposed to specific types of medications. Previous studies have highlighted that osteonecrosis of the jaw is triggered by invasive dental procedures and can be very challenging to manage, especially in oncologic patients. The primary aim of this review is to analyse all available evidence on the management (surgical and/or conservative) of medication related-osteonecrosis of the jaws (MRONJ) in patients with a history of antiangiogenic drugs therapy and not previously exposed to any antiresorptive drug treatments.

- Stress hyperglycaemia or diabetes mellitus in cervicofacial infections? A Maxillofacial Surgery Trainees Research Collaborative (MTReC) Studyby MTReC Writing group, MTReC Collaborative on 24/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is thought to be associated with poor outcomes in cervicofacial infections (CFI), yet little is known about the prevalence of DM in CFI. Stress hyperglycaemia (SHG), a normal physiological response to inflammation, is distinct from DM, though they overlap and may be conflated. We aimed to establish the prevalence of DM and SHG in CFI and determine the effect of each on severity of disease and outcome measures.
- Does angulation of osteotome during pterygomaxillary dysjunction for a Le Fort I osteotomy influence stress transmission to the orbit? A finite element simulation in normal and cleft maxillaeby M. Juliet, A. Parameswaran, M. Pedamally, N. Aggarwal, M. Ramanthan, Y. Mori on 23/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Pterygomaxillary (PTM) dysjunction is a technique-sensitive step in Le Fort I osteotomy. Various studies implicate improper osteotomy techniques and anatomical variations of the midface in ophthalmic/orbital complications. The aim of this study was to assess the stress distribution and its transmission to the orbit during PTM dysjunction while using different angulations of the osteotome. The study involved the generation of two virtual models from the computed tomographic images of a non-cleft and cleft patient.
