- 2021 ACOMS Elaine A. Stuebner Scholars Award Winning Essayby Caitlin B.L. Magraw on 20/07/2021 at 12:00 am
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed life as we know it. The “new normal” has become a catch phrase to describe the many adaptations individuals and institutions have had to make in their lives due to the pandemic. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, the new normal is a concept we know well. We have had to adjust to a new normal at every stage of our career to be successful: during graduate school, residency/fellowship training, and our everyday practice. Each of these phases in our lives has required adjustment in our lifestyles and priorities, a tremendous amount of dedication and personal sacrifice.

- Unicystic ameloblastoma with stromal giant cells: A case series of a rare entityby Liam Robinson, Felipe Paiva Fonseca, Júlio César Tanos Lacerda, Wilie F.P. van Heerden on 20/06/2021 at 12:00 am
Ameloblastoma is a locally aggressive, benign epithelial odontogenic neoplasm currently classified to include conventional, unicystic and extraosseous/peripheral subtypes. Giant cells have been reported in various malignancies, but rarely in odontogenic neoplasms. To date, only a single case of unicystic ameloblastoma with stromal giant cells has been reported in the literature. We report two new cases with histological features compatible with unicystic ameloblastoma with stromal giant cells. CD68 immunohistochemical staining of the giant cells supported a histiocytic origin.
- Awareness of the risk of radiation-related caries in Head and neck cancer patients: A survey of physicians, dentists, and patientsby Beatriz Nascimento Figueiredo Lebre Martins, Natália Rangel Palmier, Ana Carolina Prado Ribeiro, Mario Fernando de Goes, Marcio Ajudarte Lopes, Thais Bianca Brandão, Cesar Rivera, César Augusto Migliorati, Joel B.

Radiation-related caries (RRC) is one of the most aggressive complications of radiotherapy (RT) in head and neck cancer (HNC) survivors. Lack of RRC awareness may contribute to the occurrence of this oral cavity complication. RRC may be considered a “forgotten oral complication” by HNC patients, oncologists, and dentists. The present study aimed to assess the level of awareness of RRC among physicians, dentists, and patients.
- Thyroid Carcinoma Discovered Incidentally During Surgical Resection of Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma: A Case Seriesby Xinyuan Ning, Jaimie Hittman, Joshua Lubek, Rana Malek on 20/06/2021 at 12:00 am
The occurrence of two synchronous primary cancers of different origin in the head and neck region is rare. The incidence of thyroid carcinoma found during surgical resection of primary oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCCa) is about 0.3-1.9% of patients. Because of the rarity of cases, there is no consensus on management. To clarify significance and management of such lesions, we report 13 cases in which incidental thyroid carcinoma was discovered during surgical resection for primary oral SCCa. A total of 1295 cases of head and neck SCCa from a four-year period were reviewed, of which we found 13 cases of concurrent thyroid malignancy providing an incidence rate of approximately 1%.

- Handheld intraoral dental x-ray devices should supplement but not replace conventional radiographic equipmentby James R. Geist on 06/06/2021 at 12:00 am
Recent changes in the laws regulating dental practice in some jurisdictions have increased interest in the use of handheld portable dental x-ray units for intraoral radiography. These devices, which have been commercially available for many years, include a battery-powered x-ray generator that is not fixed to an immobile place in the operatory but is instead held by the operator during exposure. In some configurations, the unit can be attached to a mobile tripod and operated by cable from a location distant from the generator.
- Autologous platelet concentrates in oral surgery: protocols, properties and clinical applicationsby Dr Laura O'Sullivan, Dr Rícheal Ní Ríordáin on 04/06/2021 at 12:00 am
Autologous platelet concentrates (APCs) are a relatively new phenomenon, with initial reports on their regenerative potential published as recently as 1998. Despite their relative infancy, a huge body of evidence exists in support of their capacity to promote osseous and soft tissue regeneration through the physiological processes of platelet activation and subsequent growth factor release. APCs have transformed many areas of healthcare and are now considered an essential component of the surgical milieu.
