Purpose: Current ballistics and high-energy explosion possess unnoticed, new and significant biophysics and pathophysiology wounding effects that are unique in comparison with civilian trauma. The primary blast wave effects of compressed air due to explosion lead to tattered and crushed eggshell injuries to the upper central midface (UCM). High-energy shell fragments of various shapes and sizes cause extensive destruction and are different from assault rifle's bullets that cause high energy transfer to the  tissue by creating a temporary cavitation...

Oral cancer is a major health problem in India, and in certain parts, it represents more than 50% of all cancers. Since almost all of these patients receive chemo-radiotherapy with or without surgery for treatment, a vast majority of them also develop oral mucositis, a debilitating adverse effect of chemo-radiation. There have been various reports in the literature regarding the beneficial role of honey in the management of oral mucositis. The objective of this study was to investigate whether the application of honey in mucositis confers any significant improvement in lesions of mucositis and more specifically whether application of honey brings about any improvement in the quality of life of patients suffering from chemo-radiation-induced oral mucositis...

Maxillary sinus grafting is a commonly used treatment alternative in cases with insufficient bone height to enable insertion of implants in the posterior maxilla. It is commonly carried out with autogenous grafts, biomaterials or both. Autogenous bone grafts are considered gold standard for this procedure; however, due to donor site morbidity, it is not as commonly used as other biomaterials. Mandibular tori are hyperostoses on the lingual side of the mandible in the premolar region. This a case in which mandibular tori were used for a sinus augmentation procedure...

Pseudoaneurysms are rare lesions secondary to blunt or penetrating trauma, temporomandibular joint surgery, or orthognathic surgery. They are usually produced by arterial breach leading to extravasation of blood. The compressed perivascular tissue forms the wall of aneurysmal sac. This sac gradually expands and can be damaged. Nonsurgical interventions are the treatment of choice for pseudoaneurysms. In the case reported here, emergent endovascular injection of acrylic glue was successful in the treatment of a pseudoaneurysm from a branch of the internal maxillary artery secondary to surgical extraction of impacted maxillary third molar...

A hemangiopericytoma is a type of soft tissue sarcoma that originates in the pericytes in the walls of capillaries which was characterized in 1942. It is commonly seen in the age group of 5th-6th decades of adults and only 5-10% of cases occur in children with extreme rare occurrence in head and neck region (16%). A rare case of hemangiopericytoma in a 4-year-old female patient is presented here and its clinical, histopathological and immunohistochemically features are discussed. Though surgical resection remains the mainstay, excisional biopsy was primarily performed to reach the final diagnosis...

Cartilage analogue of fibromatosis is a relatively common tumor in the palms and soles of young children and adolescence. The characteristic histological finding of the tumor is the differentiation toward cartilage formation within a background of fibromatosis-like growth. Therefore, the tumor may cause potential diagnostic problems in the maxillofacial bones where it has not been described. The purpose of the present report is to describe the imaging characteristics, histological and immunohistochemical features of an extremely rare case of cartilage analogue of fibromatosis in the maxillary alveolar bone of a 25-year-old female...
