BACKGROUND: Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is a common treatment for mandibular angle fractures. It is unknown, however, whether the insertional torque of the fixation screws is a risk factor for postoperative complications. PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was to determine the association between fixation screw insertional torque and postoperative inflammatory complications (POICs). STUDY DESIGN, SETTING, SAMPLE: The authors conducted a prospective cohort study consisting of all adult patients treated with ORIF of mandibular angle fractures using a single six-hole lateral border plate secured with monocortical screws from January 1, 2020, to October 31, 2022, at a large, urban academic hospital...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of maxillofacial and head injuries associated with electric scooters (e-scooter, ES) has risen in concordance with its popularity. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare maxillofacial and head injury location, type, and severity related to ES and bicycle accidents and to identify factors contributing to injury severity. STUDY DESIGN, SETTING, SAMPLE: The authors implemented a multicenter retrospective cohort study in Seattle, Washington, and enrolled a sample of ES riders and bicyclists who sustained maxillofacial injuries between September 2020 and September 2022...

BACKGROUND: Injections using buffered lidocaine may decrease discomfort, have a quicker onset, and be a more efficacious local anesthetic. Previous studies have been inconclusive in the oral context. PURPOSE: To address if bicarbonate buffered 2% lidocaine can decrease pain from the use of local anesthesia, has a quicker onset time, and is more efficacious. STUDY DESIGN: The design was a single-center double-blinded randomized control trial, set in an outpatient oral and maxillofacial clinic housed in the University of Cincinnati Medical Center...

BACKGROUND: Segmental maxillary osteotomies require precise occlusal control due to variability in individual segment positioning. The role of maxillomandibular fixation (MMF) technique on occlusal control has not been validated. PURPOSE: The purpose is to measure and compare the accuracy of occlusal positioning among MMF techniques. STUDY DESIGN, SETTING, SAMPLE: This was a double-blinded in vitro study on experiment models to simulate a 3-piece LeFort I osteotomy...

Segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia (SOD) is a rare and unusual nonhereditary developmental disorder that affects one side of the maxilla, impacting the hard tissue, soft tissue, and dentition in the affected area. It most frequently presents with enlargement of the gingival and osseous tissue of the affected side and hypodontia of the involved quadrant. Cutaneous irregularities of the impacted area are also common. We report a case of SOD arising in the right maxilla of a three-year-old female. Our report and review of the literature highlight the clinical, radiographic, and histopathologic characteristics of SOD, as well as the management of patients and the proposed etiologies of its pathogenesis...

BACKGROUND: Distraction osteogenesis is a progressively popular technique for maxillofacial bone reconstruction, but there is a notable gap in the analysis of bone volume within the distraction segment and the exploration of associated influencing factors. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to quantitatively analyze the new bone volume and the distraction gap volume in the three-dimensional (3D) model and explore the influencing factors associated with the percentage of the new bone volume to the distraction gap volume...

PURPOSE: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) surgery is being increasingly performed globally with considerable success leading to improved quality of life for patients affected with disabling temporomandibular disorders. One of the most unusual phenomena noted during maxillofacial surgery due to stimulation of the trigeminal nerves is the Trigeminocardiac reflex (TCR), which causes sudden bradycardia and hypotension causing alarm and distress to the surgical and anesthetic team. The purpose of this systematic review is to identify the frequency and discuss the pathophysiology of the TCR especially during TMJ surgery...

BACKGROUND: Artificial Intelligence, by answering questions about disease prevention strategies, can contribute to making diseases more treatable in their early stages. PURPOSE: This study aims to evaluate the quality of patient information by assessing the responses of the Chat Generative Pretrained Transformer (ChatGPT, Open AI, USA) artificial intelligence model to questions related to medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ). STUDY DESIGN, SETTING, SAMPLE: The study was prospective cross-sectional design...

BACKGROUND: Vascularized fibula free flap (VFFF) remains gold standard for reconstruction of bony defects of the maxilla or mandible. Research and publications in recent years essentially focused on the evolution and improvement of the recipient reconstructed area but very few concerning the donor site morbidity. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to analyze walking ability of patients following VFFF operation and to determine if there are long term walking disabilities...

BACKGROUND: Though the epidemiology of craniomaxillofacial (CMF) fractures has been well documented at urban hospitals, the characteristics of these fractures in rural hospitals have not been well studied. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to report on the epidemiology of CMF fractures at a regional Level 1 trauma center serving a large rural population in central Illinois. STUDY DESIGN, SETTING, SAMPLE: This is a retrospective cohort study at a community-based regional tertiary referral center that serves a predominantly rural population...

BACKGROUND: Several measures have been implemented to minimize the side effects of impacted third molar (M3) removal including the use of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF). PURPOSE: This study compared the effects of three modifications of PRF (leukocyte-PRF [L-PRF], advanced-PRF [A-PRF], and advanced-PRF plus [A-PRF +]) on the side effects of impacted M3 removal. STUDY DESIGN, SETTING, AND SAMPLE: This double-blinded randomized controlled trial was conducted at the Oral Surgery Department of Kashan University between September 2022 and May 2023 on patients undergoing mandibular impacted M3 removal...

BACKGROUND: Head and neck soft tissue sarcoma (HNSTS), rare and heterogeneous malignancies, are treated primarily treated with surgery. However, prognostic indicators that might guide HNSTS management are poorly defined. PURPOSE: Main purpose of this study is to find variables linked to HNSTS patients' prognosis. Assessment of the TNM system is the secondary purpose. STUDY DESIGN, SETTING, SAMPLE: This study is a retrospective cohort performed on HNSTS patients who received surgery at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Head and Neck Oncology, Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital School of Medicine, Shanghai Jiao Tong University from January 1, 2006, to December 31, 2014...

Botulinum toxin (BTX) injection is a common treatment for bruxism, but there is no literature on potential salivary gland complications. This paper presents a case of acute parotitis in a 60-year-old female following BTX injections to the masseter muscle. This case highlights the possible salivary gland complications after injection of BTX into the masticatory muscles. An electronic search of PubMed and Embase databases was conducted to create a literature review in order to delve into the etiology behind the presented case and suggest potential preventive measures to avoid salivary gland complications...

BACKGROUND: In December 2019, an outbreak of a novel pneumonia-like illness, COVID-19 (C-19), emerged in Wuhan, China. In March 2020, as the incidence of C-19 rose, the Israeli government, like that of other nations, declared a national state of emergency, and a full, general lockdown was announced. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to determine the incidence and characteristics of pediatric maxillofacial trauma presentation during the 2020 C-19 lockdown restrictions and compare them to periods outside lockdown between 2019 and 2020 (Pre-C-19)...
