Article
Purpose The unprotected nature of motorcycle riding exposes motorcyclist to elevated risk of sustaining facial soft tissue injuries; however, its link with an underlying facial bone fracture remain unexplored. The purpose of this study is to determine whether the type and site of soft tissue injury (STI) sustained by motorcyclists were associated w...

Subcutaneous emphysema (SE) is a swelling which develops due to air entrapped underneath the subcutaneous tissue and facial planes causing distention of the overlying skin. SE can develop due to trauma, surgery, or infection. The diagnosis of SE is mostly based on clinical findings of crepitation upon palpation of the swelling. Once diagnosed, SE i...

Background Tooth extraction post radiotherapy is one of the most important risk factors of osteoradionecrosis of the jawbones. The objective of this study was to determine the predictors of osteoradionecrosis (ORN) which were associated with a dental extraction post radiotherapy. Methods A retrospective analysis of medical records and dental panor...

Intraoperative computed tomography (CT) has been previously described and acknowledged for its use in orbital blowout fracture reconstructions. We described a clinical case series managed by this technique combined with intraoperative image fusion for accuracy in orbital implant position. In total, eight patients who sustained a total number of 19...

Osteoradionecrosis (ORN) of the jaws and medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (MRONJ) are uncommon but serious diseases affecting the oral and maxillofacial region with clinically similar appearance but distinct pathophysiology. Management of ORN and MRONJ is inherently challenging and the treatment outcomes are unpredictable. The use of au...

Introduction: Condyle fracture can be treated surgically (ORIF) or conservatively (CTR). When treated by CTR, the fracture might not heal in a morphologically ideal shape. The severity of the deformity and its effects on the functional outcome is not known. This study would investigate the anatomical outcome of CTR and its effect on the functional...

Introduction: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been suggested to be beneficial in managing compromised acute and chronic wounds. To shed some light on its effectiveness in head‑and‑neck wounds, a retrospective review on the use of HBOT was done. Materials and Methods: The medical records of patients receiving HBOT for head-and-neck conditions w...
Article
Aim: The objective of this review was to determine the different types of surgical intervention in the management of nasal bone fractures, the outcomes, and complications associated with each intervention. Methods: A search was conducted using the PubMed and Cochrane Database of Systematic Review databases from January 1, 1997 until September 9,...
Article
Orbital fractures pose specific challenge in its surgical management. One of the greatest challenges is to obtain satisfactory reconstruction by correct positioning of orbital implant. Intraoperative computed tomography (CT) scan may facilitate this procedure. The aim of this study was to describe the early use of intraoperative CT in orbital fract...
Article
Full-text available
Anterosuperior temporomandibular joint dislocation is rare. Manual reduction of such dislocation is difficult especially when treatment is delayed. Therefore, it has an increased likelihood of needing surgical intervention to achieve reduction. The authors report a case of an anterosuperior temporomandibular dislocation in a 19-year-old male follow...
Article
Distraction osteogenesis allows superior skeletal advancement compared to conventional surgical osteotomy. It can be considered as a reliable and predictable surgical procedure and is widely used to correct the craniomaxillofacial bone discrepancy. Nevertheless, the outcome is technically dependent and requires comprehensive peri-operative assessme...
Article
The mandibulotomy is a procedure that was developed to improve access in tumour resection. This study aimed to investigate the complications associated with mandibulotomy and analyze factors that could affect the risks of developing these complications. The hospital records of all patients who underwent a mandibulotomy as part of their tumour ablat...
Article
Full-text available
We describe a case of extensively comminuted mandibular fracture that extends bilaterally to the angle of mandible successfully treated with the use of condylar positioning device (CPD). This simple, yet effective, technique that almost exclusively described in orthognathic surgery is useful when advance surgical techniques such as pre- or intraope...

A 53-year-old female patient was referred to us with a posttraumatic frontoorbital deformity following motor vehicle accident after 2 months of her injury. Using the virtual surgical planning software, comprehensive analysis of the deformity, and preoperative planning was simulated. The reconstruction of the defect was then determined and approxima...
Article
In this unusual case report, we describe an adult patient who developed postoperative complication of vasovagal-like symptoms mimicking oculocardiac reflex (OCR) following secondary reconstruction of orbital floor blowout fracture utilizing computer generated, fully customized, patient-specific polyetheretherketone (PEEK) implant. Careful assessmen...
Article
Traumatic pseudoaneurysm involving the maxillary artery is rare. Owing to its anatomic location, internal maxillary artery is usually protected by its surrounding structures. Formation of pseudoaneurysm usually takes place after several weeks to months of the initial injury. In this case, we reported a pseudoaneurysm arising from left internal maxi...
Article
Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is a rare genetic disorder that develops following exposure to volatile anaesthetic agents and depolarizing muscle relaxants. In this case report, a 10-year-old boy with cleft lip and palate underwent alveolar bone grafting for right cleft alveolus. In this surgery, the MH episode occurred approximately 2 h following ind...
Article
Background: Glutamine supplementation is a novel approach to perioperative nutritional management. Methods: This study was a prospective randomized clinical trial of effects of enteral glutamine supplementation in surgical patients with head and neck malignancy in a tertiary center. This study measured the effects of supplementation within 4 wee...
Article
Background: Maxillofacial injuries comprising hard tissue as well as soft tissue injuries can be associated with traumatic brain injuries due to the impact of forces transmitted through the head and neck. To date, the role of maxillofacial injury on brain injury has not been properly documented with some saying it has a protective function on the...

We present a case of a 20-year-old woman presenting initially with an asymptomatic palatal swelling. Radiographic examination showed a cyst at the right maxilla with bucco-lingual expansion and perforation of palatal bone. Incisional biopsy was carried out via a buccal approach and the result revealed a benign odontogenic cyst, in keeping with radi...

The radiation induced fibroatrophic process was recently proposed as an explanation on the pathophysiological pathway for the development of osteoradionecrosis. The use of pentoxifylline and tocopherol has been suggested to be able to reverse this process. The authors report a case of a longstanding osteoradionecrosis in a 60 years old male. The pa...
