- Forehead region as an external reference point orthognathic surgeryby CY Chieng, Velupillai Ilankovan on 20/09/2021 at 12:00 am
Maxillary repositioning in orthognathic surgery to a planned position requires vertical, antero-posterior and transverse measurements. The latter two are obtained from the intermediate wafer in bimaxillary osteotomy and the final wafer in single jaw osteotomy. The techniques to ensure reproducibility of the vertical dimensions are varied. Also, retaining the dental midline accuracy is an important task in maxillary osteotomy.
- Gift authorships and ways to subdue itby Prashanth Panta on 20/09/2021 at 12:00 am
The principal authors decide which contributors deserve inclusion on the title page based on the quantum of work done. Although many follow ethics in research, few engage in gift authorships for different reasons.[1–3] It is highly challenging for journals to police this.
- aThe success of day case treatment of zygomatic and orbital fracturesby Lily Long, James Douglas, Maire Morton, Lachlan Carter, Jiten Parmar on 18/09/2021 at 12:00 am
Traditionally, surgical management of zygomatic maxillary-complex (ZMC) and orbital fractures occurs within two to three weeks of the injury followed by an overnight admission to allow for extended eye observations. This is due to the risk of post-operative retrobulbar haemorrhage (RBH) or orbital compartment syndrome (OCS), a rapidly progressive and sight threatening emergency which requires immediate intervention.In September 2016 the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) department at Leeds Teaching Hospitals redesigned their trauma service with a full-time trauma consultant, dedicated clinic and a weekly morning elective trauma theatre list.
- Virtual planning accuracy evaluation in bimaxillary orthognathic surgery: systematic reviewby Gustavo Marques Tondin, Marilia de Oliveira Coelho Dutra Leal, Sarah Teixeira Costa, Ricardo Grillo, Claudio Roberto Pacheco Jodas, Rubens Gonçalves Teixeira on 17/09/2021 at 12:00 am
The purpose of this research was to evaluate virtual planning accuracy in bimaxillary orthognathic surgery, in bone tissue, by analyzing the mean linear and angular differences, through comparison between planning and surgical result. Electronic databases, MEDLINE via PubMed, Web of Science, SCOPUS, Cochrane Library database, Gray Literature, and the American clinical trial registry (www.clinicaltrials .gov), were accessed as search engines. The studied population consisted of publications related to the assessment of accuracy in virtual planning in bimaxillary orthognathic surgery, between 2010 to 2020.
- MaxSim, A Novel Simulation Based Education Course for OMFS Emergenciesby Adam Matthew Holden on 15/09/2021 at 12:00 am
For Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) Senior House Officers (SHOs), with no formal medical training, the first exposure to emergency scenarios will be the first time they are having to manage them, usually alone. Simulation based education (SBE) has been demonstrated to increased experience and confidence when used in medical education , therefore an OMFS SBE course was created to facilitate this learning.
- Resection of medial orbital tumours via lateral orbitotomy and minimally invasive microscopic, transconjunctival and pre-caruncular approachesby Samer G. Hakim, Peter Sieg on 15/09/2021 at 12:00 am

- Efficacy of gastric aspiration to reduce postoperative vomiting after orthognathic surgery: double-blind randomized clinical trialby Alessandro Oliveira De Jesus, Guilherme Lacerda de Toledo, Gustavo Marques de Oliveira Chiavaioli, Mauro Henrique Nogueira Guimarães de Abreu, Ricardo Alves Mesquita, Marcio Bruno Figueiredo Amaral on 15/09/2021 at 12:00 am
Orthognathic surgery is a treatment modality indicated to correct dentofacial deformities. Postoperative vomiting can be associated with multifactorial origin mainly correlated to patient-related symptoms, anesthetic and surgical factors. Swallowed blood has been related with one of those multifactorial vomiting causes. Objective: This present study was to compare the efficacy of gastric aspiration after bimaxillary orthognathic surgery. Study design: A double blind randomized clinical trial was carried out and patients were divided in two groups (n = 44 / 39 respectively).
- Facial aesthetic surgery under local anaesthetic- “My Journey”by Velupillai Ilankovan on 15/09/2021 at 12:00 am
Beauty has been linked to the mathematics and described as a numerical ratio by “The Pythagorean Theorem”We too perceive symmetry and proportions as a guideline and framework for beauty. The Aesthetic Surgeons who recommend treatment also describe proportions vertically as one third of upper, middle, lower face and transversely from the mid-face to the chin aiming to create a triangular projection to achieve a pleasing outcome.
- A survey to ascertain peer support models available in Head and Neck cancer across the United Kingdomby Hatton RA, Crane J, Patterson J, Rogers SN on 15/09/2021 at 12:00 am
In cancers and chronic conditions, peer support (PS) has been shown to improve quality of life (QOL) and provide an important coping mechanism for patients, however there is little evidence for this intervention in Head and Neck cancer (HNC). Peer support allows individuals to come together and share information, encouragement, and experiences. It is delivered in a variety of ways including one-to-one, online, and support groups. There is limited literature regarding the timing, barriers, and types of PS available for individuals with HNC across the United Kingdom (UK).
- COVID-associated mucormycosis (CAM) in India is a multidimensional problemby Prashanth Panta, Neil Stone on 15/09/2021 at 12:00 am

- Radiotherapy and the survival of dental implants: A systematic reviewby Bizhan Shokouhi, Tanya Cerajewska, Bizhan Shokouhi, Tanya Cerajewska on 15/09/2021 at 12:00 am
The effects of head and neck cancer treatment with adjuvant radiotherapy can be devastating for patients. There is frequently loss of function due to tooth loss, pain and discomfort from xerostomia and mucositis, and a significant psycho-social impact. Dental implants provide an effective means of rehabilitation for many; however, irradiation poses a unique set of challenges that can affect the outcome of treatment. The aim of this review is to evaluate whether radiotherapy in head and neck cancer patients affects dental implant survival and discuss the details of pertinent influencing factors.
- Experience of a UK Level One Trauma Centre in Orbital Floor Fractures: A Focus on the Surgical Approach and Lid-Related Complicationsby Khaled Borghol, Natalie Turton, Ian Sharp on 15/09/2021 at 12:00 am
The two surgical approaches to access orbital fractures are transconjunctival and transcutaneous. The aim of this study was to assess the outcomes of orbital repairs with a focus on lid-related complications and their management. A retrospective analysis was carried out over a 5-year period, from January 2015 to January 2020, assessing all consecutive orbital repairs in our unit. Data was collected for variables including demographics, fracture pattern, surgical approach, and details of any post-operative complications.
- Does the geriatric nutrition risk index predict the prognosis of patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma?by Kenji Yamagata, Satoshi Fukuzawa, Fumihiko Uchida, Kazuhiro Terada, Naomi Ishibashi-Kanno, Hiroki Bukawa on 15/09/2021 at 12:00 am
Malnutrition is associated with the prognosis of malignant diseases. The geriatric nutritional risk index (GNRI), based on serum albumin (ALB) levels and the present and ideal body weight, is a simple screening tool to predict the risk of malnutrition and mortality in patients. We hypothesized that nutritional markers could predict the prognosis of patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). The primary predictor variable was the GNRI score and the primary outcome variable was overall survival (OS).
- The Teachable Moment & Mentoringby Leonard B. Kaban, Jeffrey C. Posnick on 03/09/2021 at 12:00 am
What is “a teachable moment”? Think of it as an unplanned occasion to provide insights on a topic, a procedure, or an issue that is occupying the attention of a person(s) you are engaged with at that moment. It requires an opportunity, a recipient (student, trainee, colleague) and a willing teacher (mentor). Teachable moments are unplanned, so they must be sensed and acted upon by the teacher or mentor. The concept was popularized by Robert Havighurst in his 1952 publication: “When the time is right, the ability to learn a particular task will be possible.” This is “a teachable moment.” During daily interactions, it can be difficult to seize the attention of a student or trainee.

- Re: Following the trend in maxillofacial surgery literatureby Andrew J Gibbons, Bharath Puttur on 30/08/2021 at 12:00 am
This timely article by Wilson et al 1 demonstrated that the trend in the maxillofacial literature is towards higher quality research. However, the paper clearly showed, but did not discuss, the very low number of audits published in the British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the complete absence of published audits in the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

- Immediate post-operative care on high dependency unit or ward following microvascular free tissue transfer: lessons learnt from a change in practice imposed during the Covid 19 pandemicby P. James, F. Bekiroglu, D. Broderick, O. Khattak, D. Lowe, A. Schache, R.J. Shaw, S.N. Rogers on 26/08/2021 at 12:00 am
The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in sudden changes to the established practice of using high dependency (HDU) for the first night of postoperative care following microvascular free tissue transfer. Patients were managed instead on the head and neck ward. This retrospective case-note review aimed to report outcomes in consecutive patients treated before and during the pandemic and to reflect on the implications of ward-based care rather than HDU.235 patients had free tissue transfer between 3rd January 2019 and 25th February 2021, 125 before the pandemic (lockdown 23rd March 2020), and 110 during the pandemic (52 ward managed and 58 HDU managed).
- Lower lip depressor reanimation using anterior belly of digastric muscle transfer improves psychological wellbeing in facial palsy patientsby Nigel Tapiwa Mabvuure, Rui Pinto-Lopes, Lauren Bolton, Kallirroi Tzafetta on 26/08/2021 at 12:00 am
The authors previously published positive peer-reviewed (21 raters using the Terzis scale) and photogrammetric (Emotrics) outcomes in patients who had undergone two-stage lower lip reanimations up to 2018. Other series have published surgeon and peer-rated results but only two series (n=12) assessed patient’s views using patient satisfaction surveys.
- Praise and raise of the ancient changeby Chisci Glauco on 26/08/2021 at 12:00 am
found interest in the article by Harazono et al. that raised 40 cases of schwannoma in the oral and maxillofacial region.  First of all, I should congratulate Harazono et al. on their article for the great number of cases regarding a rare pathology: however, some critical aspects in the text should be pointed out.

- Treating the N0 Neck in early stage oral cancer a pause for re-assessment?by Andrew Lyons, Selvam Thavaraj, Parinita Swarnkar, Jean-Pierre Jeannon, Alastair Fry, Gillian Hall, Rafal Niziol, Maria Teresa Guerrero-Urbano, Peter Brennan on 20/08/2021 at 12:00 am
The incidence of metastases following neck dissection in the apparent lymph node negative neck in oral cancer is between 7-33%; early resection of cervical metastases may well increase survival. Modern imaging techniques can reduce the yield of previously undiagnosed metastatic nodes in elective neck dissection (END). An audit of 112 consecutive cases was conducted to determine the proportion of undiagnosed nodal metastases, after END. There were neck metastases in 10 cases (9%), which were mainly (but not all) micrometastic.
- Sexual dimorphism and geographical variance: their impact on the reliability of the antilingula as a landmark in human mandibular surgeryby M. Kapur, R.A. Shah, A. Ferro, S. Basyuni, C. Brassett, V. Santhanam on 19/08/2021 at 12:00 am
The intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO) is an orthognathic procedure that is used to correct dentofacial abnormalities, and is performed by approaching the lateral aspect of the mandibular ramus. This approach, however, precludes visualisation of the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) on the medial side, thereby placing it at risk of iatrogenic damage. The antilingula, a bony prominence on the lateral mandibular ramus, has been proposed as a landmark for prediction of the IAN’s location during IVRO.
- Use of the greater palatine pedicled flap for the surgical management of trismus in oral submucous fibrosisby Arunkumar Shadamarshan R, Rohit Sharma, Ritu Grewal, Seema Patrikar on 17/08/2021 at 12:00 am
The aim of this paper was to clinically evaluate the efficacy of the greater palatine pedicled flap (GPPF) for the correction of trismus in oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF). This retrospective study was designed from the patients diagnosed with OSMF who underwent transection of fibrous bands and coverage of the defect in the retromolar trigone (RMT) region using GPPF from 2008-2019. Cases were analysed for preoperative (MOpre-op), and postoperative mouth opening (MOpost-op), secondary healing of the palate, and complications of the procedure.

This study aimed to: evaluate the experience of medical students in the field of OMFS, the awareness of medical students to OMFS resources/societies and to determine the greatest motivators and deterrents for students in pursuing a career in OMFS.
- Unicystic Ameloblastoma: analysis of surgical management and recurrence risk factorsby Fadi Titinchi, Peter A Brennan on 06/08/2021 at 12:00 am
Unicystic ameloblastoma is a distinct pathological variant with varying evidence published about its behaviour and surgical management. Due to paucity of large studies in the literature with long-term follow-up, the aim of this study was to analyse its surgical management and identify clinico-pathological features associated with recurrences.All histopathologically confirmed lesions diagnosed at two referral centres between 1995 and 2020 were retrospectively analysed. Demographic, clinical, radiological and histopathological features were analysed along with surgical methods and follow-up data.
- Patients experience and perceived concerns regarding obtaining and taking prescriptions for head and neck osteoradionecrosisby Edward J Willcocks, Yvonne B Y Lim, Simon N Rogers on 05/08/2021 at 12:00 am
The main components of the medical management of osteoradionecrosis (ORN) are combinations of clodronate, pentoxifylline, tocopherol, sometimes with antibiotics or chlorhexidine rinses. Anecdotally in the Cheshire and Merseyside network, patients report having difficulties getting and taking their prescription, hence the aim was to survey patient experience of obtaining prescriptions, administration of the medications, and side effects.Patients prescribed tocopherol and pentoxifylline from the pharmacy department’s record database from the period of January 2019 to June 2020 were invited to take part in a semi-structured telephone survey.
- Masseter muscle defined sarcopenia and survival in head and neck cancer patientsby David M McGoldrick, Aghiad Yassin Alsabbagh, Moinuddin Shaikh, Laura Pettit, Sunil K Bhatia on 05/08/2021 at 12:00 am
Sarcopenia is increasingly recognised as a poor prognostic factor in older patients undergoing cancer treatment. Recently, masseter muscle cross sectional area (MMCSA) has been shown to accurately identify sarcopenic patients. We aimed to apply this novel technique to a head and neck cohort to identify any potential relationship with survival.

- Is Manual Reduction Adequate For Intraoperative Control Of Occlusion During The Fixation Of Mandibular Fractures? A Systematic Review And Metanalysisby Ashutosh Kumar Singh, Samarika Dahal, Sumit Singh, Krishna KC, Rajib Chaulagain on 27/07/2021 at 12:00 am
The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate if manual intraoperative control of occlusion is adequate for mandibular fracture reduction, compared to intermaxillary fixation (IMF). We searched PubMed, Embase, Cochrane library and Clinical trial registry as well as references of included trials. Our primary outcome of interest was the reduction of fracture anatomically and radiographically, occlusal disturbances and incidence of revision procedures due to poor occlusion or reduction. Our secondary outcomes of interest were operative time and infective complications.
- NICO Phase II clinical trial – focus on an emerging immunotherapy strategy for the adjuvant treatment of locally-advanced oral cancersby R.C. Brooker, A.G. Schache, J.J. Sacco on 27/07/2021 at 12:00 am
Outcomes remain poor for patients presenting with locally-advanced oral cancers and it remains imperative to re-evaluate adjuvant therapies to provide improved outcomes, ideally without compromising on long-term quality of life. We present current available evidence that supports the use of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) in squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the head and neck and discuss trials examining the integration of ICI into the locoregional management of such lesions that are resectable.

- Evaluation of cheiloplasty and palatoplasty on palate surface area in children with oral clefts: longitudinal studyby Danielle Zola Almeida Prado, Eloá Cristina Passucci Ambrosio, Paula Karine Jorge, Chiarella Sforza, Márcio De Menezes, Simone Soares, Cleide Felício Carvalho Carrara, Fabrício Pinelli Valarelli, Maria Aparecida Andrade Moreira Machado, Thais Marchini Oliveira on 21/07/2021 at 12:00 am
This study aimed to evaluate the palatal surface area in children with different oral clefts after primary surgeries and at 5 years of age. This is a longitudinal study was composed by 216 digital models: unilateral complete cleft lip (UCL), unilateral complete cleft lip and palate (UCLP), and complete cleft palate (CP). The models were analyzed at four periods: T1 (before cheiloplasty), T2 (before palatoplasty), T3 (after palatoplasty); and T4 – 5 years. Area of dental arches was measured through stereophotogrammetry software.
- Comparative study of the anaesthetic efficacy of 4% articaine versus 2% lidocaine with adrenaline during extraction of mandibular molars using an inferior alveolar nerve blocking techniqueby G. Vishal, R. Dandriyal, N. Indra B., H.P. Singh, A. Chaurasia on 20/07/2021 at 12:00 am
Various anaesthetic agents have been used in dentistry for the extraction of teeth. The most commonly used local anaesthetic agent is lidocaine hydrochloride. Recently, articaine hydrochloride came into existence because of its versatile properties and longer duration of action. Due to lack of study of effects of articaine on various systems, the present study is aimed to compare the anaesthetic efficacy of articaine and lidocaine with adrenaline during the extraction of mandibular molars. A total of 100 patients was randomly divided into two groups (50 each) and clinical variables such onset and duration of anaesthesia, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, pulse rate, and pain perception were recorded at different time intervals using a visual analogue scale.
- Surgical treatment of fractures of zygomaticomaxillary complex: effect of fixation on reposition and stability. A systematic reviewby Iva I. Raghoebar, Frederik R. Rozema, Jan de Lange, Leander Dubois on 19/07/2021 at 12:00 am
Management of zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) fractures can be challenging. Consequently, there is a difference in treatment amongst clinicians. In literature it remains unclear if the number of fixation points affects the quality of the anatomical reduction, stability through time, and the potential complications. Therefore, the objective was to assess the outcome of no fixation, one-point fixation and multiple point fixation of ZMC fractures. MEDLINE, EMBASE and The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials were searched to identify eligible studies.
