- The interplay of hypoxia and autophagy in epithelium-derived ameloblastoma cell survival: a pilot studyby Anwar A.A.Y. Almuzaini, Kathleen Boesze-Battaglia, Faizan Alawi, Sunday O. Akintoye on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Ameloblastoma is the most clinically significant benign odontogenic tumor of the jaws. Ameloblastomas have a locally aggressive growth pattern and a high rate of malignant transformation. The etiopathogenesis of ameloblastoma is still unknown, and there is still a paucity of information on the factors regulating the locally aggressive growth characteristics of ameloblastoma. Hypoxia and autophagy are 2 mechanistic processes associated with tumor behavior as several tumor cells induce a hypoxic microenvironment to survive.
- Thalidomide therapy for refractory mucosal disease: benefit and risks over 10 yearsby Thomas Saunsbury, Molly Harte, Carolina Venda-Nova, Krupali Patel, Tim Hodgson on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
The immunomodulatory and antiangiogenic effects of thalidomide have been demonstrated in a number of refractory ulcerative oromucosal conditions, including recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS), Behçet disease, erythema multiforme (EM), erosive lichen planus, and orofacial granulomatosis (OFG). Thalidomide acts by modulating the inflammatory cascade, interacting with various cytokines, including tumor necrosis factor-α, interleukin 10, and cyclooxygenase 2. Despite its efficacy, thalidomide is associated with a number of risks, including peripheral neuropathy, thromboembolic disease, and embryofetal toxicity, which limit its clinical use.

Several lesions of diverse origin may be detected in the oral cavity of young children, affecting the oral mucosa, jaws, or teeth. Their clinicopathologic features may show considerable overlap. We present an interesting case of a “ringlike hard mass” of initially unknown nature around the cervical area of a primary tooth in a young child, and we discuss the diagnostic challenges.
- Osteonecrosis of jaw secondary to stem cell transplantby Shaiba Sandhu, Vidya Sankar on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) is necrosis of mandibular or maxillary bone, which may lead to bone exposure, regardless of the etiology. It is thought to be attributed to insufficient blood supply and altered bone turnover, resulting in a disrupted repair process and eventually leading to the collapse of bone in the setting of microfractures. We report what is, to the best of our knowledge, the first case of ONJ secondary to stem cell transplant (SCT).
- Pediatric Ameloblastoma: An Update on 28 Years of Experienceby Max R. Emmerling, Nicholas Wilken, Donita Dyalram, John Caccamese, Robert Ord on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Ameloblastoma is a benign but aggressive odontogenic tumor of the jaws that may be divided into unicystic and multicystic/solid histologic subtypes. Unicystic lesions can be further subdivided based on the presence of mural involvement of the surrounding bone, and these classifications are important in directing treatment. Ameloblastomas are relatively rare in the pediatric population and there remains controversy surrounding their management in these patients. Classically, pediatric ameloblastomas have been reported as presenting with the unicystic subtype the majority of the time (76.5%),1 yet recurrence rates in pediatric ameloblastomas have been reported to be much higher than recurrence rates for ameloblastoma overall.
- Association of Candida and fluconazole therapy with proinflammatory cytokines in oral leukoplakia: a pilot studyby Shalini Gupta, Alpana Sharma, Immaculata Xess, Gagandeep Singh, Nidhi Gupta, Kalaivani Mani, Anuradha Yadav, Swati Dahiya, Sheetal Sharma on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Chronic inflammation caused by infection may lead to the production of proinflammatory cytokines (PICs) that can cause DNA damage and cell proliferation, thus playing a role in carcinogenesis. Candida infection has been reported to be increased in oral leukoplakia (OL) and is associated with an increased rate of malignant transformation into oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). In vitro studies have demonstrated that the interactions between Candida and the oral epithelium lead to the release of PICs (interleukin [IL]-6, IL-8.
- Minimally Invasive Approach for Total Temporomandibular Joint Replacementby Adam Wandell, Daniel Perez on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
This article describes a novel technique for replacing the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) with a prosthesis. The technique applies a simple endaural incision to approach the temporomandibular joint in order to place a total joint prosthesis. This is followed by small trochar site incisions for plating of the prosthesis. The technique was performed on 4 patients (8 TMJs). The potential benefits and complications of this approach are discussed throughout the article.

Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic inflammatory mucocutaneous disease. It has been related to hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection as one of the extrahepatic pathologic manifestations. The current treatment for HCV infection with direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) is highly effective and safe. This study aimed to evaluate the impact of HCV eradication on OLP clinical manifestations.
- Does the Use of a Wrap in Three-Dimensional Surgical Planning Influence the Bony Margin Status of Benign and Malignant Neoplasms of the Oral, Head and Neck Region? An Initial Investigationby Omar Kholaki, Brandon J. Saxe, Fayette C. Williams, Thomas Schlieve, Roderick Y. Kim on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Three-dimensional surgical planning (3-DSP) is becoming commonplace in the management of benign and malignant disease for oral and maxillofacial surgery practice within the last decade.1 In pathologic resections of the head and neck cysts and tumors in particular, a virtual wrap is used to delineate the tumor resection margin. However, there has yet to be a study in regard to the accuracy of this wrap and its effect on bony margin status. This study aims to discuss our experiences with the use of wraps created with 3-DSP and explore the accuracy of the wrap for margin status.

- Investigating the Prevalence and Risk Factors Associated With SARS-CoV-2 Infection Among Oral & Maxillofacial (OMS) Residents in the United Statesby Marvin Thomas, Kenneth Fleisher on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory disorder 2) has emerged as the primary global health concern of 2020. Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS) residents, like other health care personnel, have been on the front line providing care to SARS-CoV-2-negative and SARS-CoV-2-positive patients across the United States. As surgeons of the head and neck, OMS residents may be at an increased risk of infection; however, little is known about the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 infection among OMS residents across the United States.
- The first reported case of proliferative fasciitis in the oral cavityby Chitra Priya Emperumal, Parish Sedghizadeh, Audrey Boros, James Mcandrews, Carl Allen on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Proliferative fasciitis is a benign and reactive lesion involving fibroblasts in the subcutaneous tissues and deep fascia, with a rare occurrence in the head and neck region. It is considered a variant of nodular fasciitis, which could involve trauma as an etiology. Proliferative fasciitis mostly occurs in adults, but cases in children have been reported. Clinically, it can present as an aggressive lesion with pain or no symptoms, mimicking sarcomas.
- Effective Method of Lowering MRSA Carriage Rates on Surfaces in a Dental School–Based Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Clinicby Kyle Frazier, Mark Stevens, Catherine Jauregui, Craig Taylor, Stephen Looney, Rebecca Paquin on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am

- Feedback in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Educationby Lindsay L. Graves, Balaji Kolasani, Thomas Schlieve on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
The practice of giving feedback has never been evaluated in OMS (oral and maxillofacial surgery) education. The aim of this study was to characterize variations in feedback-giving strategies utilized in resident education and compare this to their preferred ways of receiving feedback. As a secondary aim, we wish to gauge residents’ satisfaction with the feedback they receive. As a tertiary aim, we wish to compare residents’ and attendings’ perception of said feedback.
- Timing Is Everything: Measuring Outcomes in Primary Cleft Rhinoplastyby Hossein E. Jazayeri, Joseph Lopez, Kevin C. Lee, Jason W. Yu, David L. Best, Zachary S. Peacock, Arun K. Gosain, Sean P. Edwards, Derek M. Steinbacher on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
The timing of ideal repair of the cleft nasal deformity has been a contentious topic among craniomaxillofacial surgeons over the last several decades. Several tissues are adversely affected, from bone through the vestibule, cartilage, and external skin. While surgical techniques, paradigms and philosophies have evolved, several important considerations are factored into the clinical decision making to perform a rhinoplasty at the time of cleft repair, such as growth interruption and several craniofacial growth centers, scarring, and the predicted aesthetic result at growth maturity.
- Distribution of human papilloma virus 16 in oral sites affected by squamous cell carcinomaby Wafaa Saleh, Sarah Fitzpatrick, Jilan Youssef, Seunghee Cha, Joseph Katz on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Studies have indicated that cases of HPV-associated squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in the oropharynx and the oral cavity are on the rise. However, the distribution of human papilloma virus (HPV) in different sites of the oral cavity affected by oral SCC (OSSC) has not been well characterized. The present study was designed to investigate the anatomic sites of HPV-16 infection associated with OSCC in the oral cavity and correlate HPV-16 positivity with tumor suppressor gene expression and clinical/pathologic features of OSCC.

- Clinical Pathologic Conference Case 5: A nonhealing gingival ulcerby Austin J. Shackelford, Charles W. Ross, Sean P. Ferris, John J. Picard, Yoshie Umemura, Theodora E. Danciu on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
A 70-year-old man presented to the University of Michigan School of Dentistry Oral Medicine Clinic with a 6-month history of “raw burning pain” in the left posterior mandible compromising his ability to eat and speak. He denied trauma or placement of any products in the area. The patient had a 10-year history of primary focal segmental glomerulosclerosis for which mycophenolate mofetil (CellCept) was being taken at a dose of 1500 mg bid. The patient also had a history of myocardial infarction 12 years prior, a total knee arthroplasty because of osteoarthritis 6 years prior, and gastroesophageal reflux disease.
- Optimizing overnight oral appliance for sustained-release varnish delivery system of sirolimusby Rakefet Czerninski, Ori Finfter, Zakhar Nudelman, Yuval Tal, David Kirmayer, Michael Friedman on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Intraoral trays can be used to deliver treatment materials and medications for dental or mucosal conditions. Maintaining appropriate salivary levels of the active ingredient is challenging when using local application. We have previously analyzed salivary levels and local effects of slow-release varnishes (with clotrimazole or sirolimus as the active ingredient) during the daytime. The aims of the present study were as follows: (1) to optimize overnight appliances for slow-release medications by measuring saliva and blood levels and (2) to evaluate the safety of overnight use.
- Clinical Pathologic Conference Case 4: Malignancy mimicking a reactive process: Multifocal leukoplakias and pigmented lesions on the buccal mucosaby Kathleen Higgins, Parish P. Sedghizadeh, F. Kyle Yip, Audrey Boros on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
The patient was a 50-year-old male with a social history significant for heavy smoking of many years’ duration. On intraoral exam, the right buccal mucosa displayed multiple scattered areas of pigmentation that vary in size, shape, and intensity of color with 2 areas of overlying leukoplakia that were relatively well defined (Figure 1). There was also a solitary oval pigmented lesion that was heterogeneous in color on the left soft palate (Figure 2). Because of the patient's social history, the clinician was concerned about the leukoplakias on the right buccal mucosa, which prompted an incisional biopsy of the anterior and posterior leukoplakic areas.
- Disparities in the geospatial distribution of dentists in the United States in 2017by Robert Semco, Justin C. Mccarty, Molly P. Jarman, Gezzer Ortega, Tarsicio Uribe-Leitz, Stephen Sonis, Alessandro Villa, Regan W. Bergmark on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Advanced dental and oral health conditions disproportionately affect racial and ethnic minority patients and patients of low socioeconomic status. The impact that the geographic distribution of dentists has on these disparities is largely unknown. The aims of this study were to map the geographic distribution of dentists within the United States at the county level and to determine whether this distribution explains a component of the observed health disparities.

- Potential prognostic implication of α-smooth muscle actin (Α-SMA) in oral squamous cell carcinoma compared with basaloid squamous carcinomaby Sahar Abass Elbarrawy, Mohamed Abass Elbarrawy on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Oral squamous cell carcinoma is the most common multistep malignant tumor affecting the oral cavity. One of the most aggressive variants of this neoplasm is the basaloid squamous carcinoma. The cancer-associated fibroblasts in the tumor microenvironment are now the focus of intense research and are believed to correlate with poor prognosis. They are characterized by α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) expression, which is a myofibroblast marker. The aims of the present study were as follows: (1) to evaluate the role of α-SMA in the progression of both neoplasms, (2) to study the prevalence of this marker with different grades of this neoplasia, and (3) to determine the immunoreactive localization of α-SMA in the lymph nodes of patients with these tumors.
- Masson tumor of the lingual tongue: a case reportby Elizabeth Hatton, Jennifer Frustino, Maureen Sullivan, Mark Burke, Rachael Rossitto on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia, or Masson tumor, is a benign lesion of the head and neck region. The etiology of the lesion arises within a blood vessel and is thought to be reactive and associated with vascular injury. Masson tumors comprise approximately 2% of all vascular tumors of skin and subcutaneous tissues; however, this is rarely seen intraorally. It is important to consider at the time of differential diagnosis to distinguish from malignancy and avoid aggressive surgery or unnecessary treatment.
- Role of salivary biomarkers for detection of systemic diseasesby Arvind Vishwanath Shetti on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Analysis of inflammatory biomarkers in saliva could offer an attractive opportunity for the diagnosis of different systemic conditions specifically in epidemiologic surveys. The aim of this study was to investigate if certain salivary biomarkers could be used for detection of common systemic diseases.
- Osteonecrosis of mandible secondary to sickle cell crisisby Fatmah Alhendi, Rabie M. Shanti, Eric T. Stoopler, Thomas P. Sollecito, Takako I. Tanaka on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is an autosomal recessive hemoglobinopathy causing amino acid substitution in the B-hemoglobin chain of erythrocytes. SCD affects 1 in 500 African American children. SCD is associated with multiorgan morbidity and significant reduction in life expectancy. Vaso-occlusive crisis associated with SCD is characterized by acute pain and local tissue hypoxia and necrosis. The extremities, back, and chest are frequently affected, and jaw involvement is very rare. To the best of our knowledge, only 3 cases of jaw osteonecrosis secondary to SCD have been reported in the English-language literature.
- Association of psychosocial stress and temporomandibular disorders in the adolescent populationby Roopali Kulkarni, Laura Ospina, Scarlet B. Charlemo, Eric T. Stoopler, Takako I. Tanaka on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Research has shown an increasing number of adolescent patients who present with somatization of pain disorders. The importance of assessing a patient's psychological and behavioral status in diagnosing temporomandibular disorder (TMD) has been explored in adults; however, its application in adolescents is unclear. The objectives of this study are to determine the association between psychosocial stress and TMD among adolescents and to further investigate the type of psychosocial stress that has the highest impact on this population.
- Regulation of STAT4 by ETS1 in Sjögren syndrome pathogenesisby Katrina Jessica Myers, Farah Mougeot, Jean-Luc Mougeot, Braxton Noll, Joel Napenas on 01/04/2021 at 12:00 am
Primary Sjögren syndrome (pSS) is a chronic autoimmune disease mainly affecting women over the age of 40, causing dry mouth and eyes. The etiology of pSS is complex and includes the overexpression of inflammatory cytokines from affected salivary gland epithelial cells (SGECs). Our group has previously identified candidate biomarkers overexpressed in salivary gland tissues of patients with pSS. We showed that ETS proto-oncogene 1 (ETS1) had higher mRNA and protein expression in pSS salivary glands that correlated with higher levels of lymphocytic infiltration.
