Various types of grafts, implants and devices are used in the treatment of maxillofacial trauma, pathologic conditions and orthognatic surgery. These can be visualized on panoramic radiographs, and radiologists should be knowledgeable of their normal and abnormal radiographic findings as well as their indications and functions. After review of this...

Lipomas are rarely found in the parotid gland region. Because of their rarity at this site, they are not often considered in the differential diagnosis of parotid tumors. The parotid lipoma is a slowly growing, asymptomatic, freely movable, soft mass. Preoperative diagnosis is generally difficult. We present a case of a slowly enlarging mass of the...

Reconstruction of the mandible with a free fibular graft is one of the most common treatment choices following tumor resection. But as the graft is often vertically deficient, pathological fracture may occur because of occlusal forces after prosthetic rehabilitation. Distraction osteogenesis can be a good choice for the repair of the fibular flap....

The term ‘solitary bone cyst’ defines several lesions such as simple bone cyst, hemorrhagic cyst, traumatic bone cyst, and idiopathic bone cavity. Solitary bone cysts are not true cysts, they lack an epithelial lining and their etiology is uncertain. Solitary bone cysts are common lesions affecting long bones and less frequently, the jaws, especial...
