- 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.
- 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.

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.

- 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.

It is now approaching 12 months since the WHO declared coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) a global pandemic.1 Aside from the core signs and symptoms, an increasing number of less common presentations have been reported.2 A number of possible oral manifestations have also been proposed.3 We would like to present a possible association between COVID-19 and tongue swelling that has not previously been reported.
- Is extracapsular dissection for pleomorphic adenoma rather a euphemism for enucleation jeopardising the intactness of the capsule?by Konstantinos Mantsopoulos, Ann-Kristin Iro, Matti Sievert, Sarina Katrin Müller, Abbas Agaimy, Mirco Schapher, Michael Koch, Heinrich Iro on 09/03/2021 at 12:00 am
For the meanwhile second-most-frequent benign tumour of the parotid gland,1,2 the prefix “pleomorphic” reflects the cyto-/architectural diversity of these lesions, which in turn reflects the variable combinations of epithelial and myoepithelial elements, intermingled with a similarly variable mucoid, myxoid or chondroid mesenchymal tissue component. Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) of major salivary glands (in contrast to its minor salivary gland counterpart) is surrounded by a varying fibrous capsule separating it from surrounding normal parenchymal or fibroadipose connective tissue.
- Patient Perceptions of Costs in the NHS: An Evaluationby Aysha Mariam Nijamudeen, Robert Jackson Banks on 06/03/2021 at 12:00 am
The cost of the NHS, wastage within it and how much trusts have overspent is a national obsession. Despite these widespread opinions, the costs of individual treatments and impacts of non-attendance appear to be little understood. There is a paucity of literature with regards to patients’ awareness of costs associated with services provided by the NHS. The authors’ aim to ascertain whether patients are aware of the costs associated with care services provided, and if this data could aid educating patients on NHS costs to reduce missed appointments.
- Providing National Level Teaching to OMFS Specialty Trainees in a Virtual Classroom Setting using Learning theories of Educationby M. Garg, D. Dhariwal, C. Newlands on 05/03/2021 at 12:00 am
COVID-19 has resulted in an expansion of webinar-based teaching globally. Socially distanced e-learning is the new normal. The delivery of regional OMFS teaching programmes in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, for Specialty Trainees (ST’s) under the Joint Committee on Surgical Training (JCST) and Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Programme (ISCP) umbrellas is variable. We recognised the need to provide additional teaching to supplement this teaching, at a time of crisis in our countries and healthcare systems, which had jointly led to significant impact on the progression of training.

A systematic review with meta-analysis and algorithm of treatmentby Suellen Sombra da Rocha, Pedro Henrique da Hora Sales, Paulo Henrique Rodrigues Carvalho, Raimundo Nonato Maia, Ricardo Franklin Gondim, José Maria Sampaio de Menezes Junior, Manoel de Jesus Rodrigues Mello on 04/03/2021 at 12:00 am
The treatment of mandibular fractures by gunshot ranges from late conservative repair to more aggressive early repair in a single stage. Treatments that preserve bony architecture as much as possible should be used, minimising patient morbidity and the complexity of future surgeries. The purpose of this study was to use a systematic review to determine which method of treatment was most effective for mandibular fractures by gunshot. Searches were conducted on Medline via PubMed, Scopus, Central Cochrane, and Sigle via Open Grey up to August 2019.
- Return to normal diet following mandibular fractures – how long is long enough?by T. Manzie, M.C. David, A. Bobinskas on 04/03/2021 at 12:00 am
Mandibular fractures are a common injury managed by Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Current open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) treatment strategies are based on Champy’s ideal line of osteosynthesis with the use of miniplate and loadsharing fixation techniques.
