RESUMEN

El ameloblastoma es un tumor de origen odontogénico, con un comportamiento altamente agresivo. Estos pueden ser sólidos o multiquístico, uniquístico, periférico o extraóseo y desmoplásico. Dentro de las alternativas de manejo, se pre!ere un tratamiento que garantice seguridad para el paciente, como la resección radical o en bloque. Cada vez se utiliza menos el tratamiento conservador debido a una alta tasa de recidiva. Se presenta un caso de paciente masculino de 13 años, que fue visto en el Hospital Nacional Rosales, en el servicio de cirugía maxilofacial de El Salvador, por una in"amación en la región posterior mandibular en el lado izquierdo de la cara. El examen intraoral reveló leve extrusión y movilidad grado 2 de pieza 36 y 37. Los análisis clínicos, radiográ!cos e histopatológicos con!rmaron el diagnóstico de ameloblastoma. Fue tratado de forma conservadora mediante curetaje, ostectomía periférica y marsupialización. Se tuvo buen resultado estético y funcional, con un adecuado proceso de cicatrización y regeneración ósea !siológica, sin la necesidad de materiales de injerto óseo. Después de un seguimiento de 8 años, no hubo evidencia de recurrencia. Esta decisión depende de la variante clínica, la extensión tumoral y el adecuado control postoperatorio del paciente


Ameloblastoma is a tumor of odontogenic origin and highly aggressive. Four clinical variants of ameloblastomas are known: solid or multicystic, unicystic, peripheral or extra- osseous and desmoplastic. Among the treatment alternatives, a treatment that ensures a high percentage of successful prognosis for the patient is preferred, being the most indicated, radical resection, or in bulk. Conservative treatment is less used due to its recurrence rate. A clinical case of a 13-year-old male patient is presented to the Rosales National Hospital, in the Maxillofacial Surgery service of El Salvador with an in"ammation in the posterior mandibular region on the left side of the face. Intraoral examination revealed mild extrusion and mobility grade 2 of parts 37 and 36. Clinical, radiographic and histopathological analyzes con!rmed the diagnosis of Ameloblastoma. It was treated conservatively by curettage, peripheral osteotomy and marsupialization. A good aesthetic and functional result was obtained, applying the conservative technique, with an adequate healing and physiological bone regeneration, without recourse to bone grafting materials. After an 8-year follow-up no evidence was found of tumor recurrence. The decision regarding the type of treatment to be applied, depends on the clinical variables, tumor extension and adequate postoperative monitoring and care of the patient

RESUMEN

Infecções maxilo-faciais graves são caracterizadas pela disseminação do processo infeccioso aos tecidos adjacentes e espaços fasciais da região de cabeça, pescoço e tórax. Sua principal origem é odontogênica, geralmente resultante de infecção periapical e doença periodontal. Podem variar de infecções bem localizadas de baixa severidade, até infecções graves, com potencial de disseminação para espaços fasciais da cabeça e pescoço, podendo causar o comprometimento de estruturas vitais, septicemia e morte. Essas infecções podem atingir diversos espaços, dentre eles o espaço mastigatório, composto pelos espaços fasciais: submassetérico, pterigomandibular, temporal profundo e temporal superficial. Esses quatro compartimentos do espaço mastigatório, comportamse clinicamente como espaços separados, pois, na maioria dos casos, somente um compartimento torna-se infectado, entretanto, infecções severas ou duradouras podem envolver todos os quatro compartimentos. O objetivo do presente estudo é apresentar o manejo clínico e cirúrgico de infecção odontogênica disseminada para o espaço temporal superficial. Paciente de 51 anos de idade, do sexo feminino, com histórico de infecção odontogênica disseminada para o espaço temporal superficial, tendo como fator etiológico resto radicular da unidade 13. Procedeu-se drenagem ambulatorial do conteúdo associada à antibioticoterapia. Após o período de 07 dias, houve remissão da condição. Apesar de incomum, infecções odontogênicas originadas de dentes anteriores, podem se disseminar para os espaços mastigatórios. Independente de sua origem deve ser tratada de forma imediata, drenando o espaço comprometido, identificando a causa e eliminando-a, e associando o uso de antibióticos como coadjuvante(AU)


Severe maxillofacial infections are characterized by the spread of the infectious process to adjacent tissues and fascial spaces of the head, neck and chest region. Its main origin is odontogenic, usually resulting from periapical infection and periodontal disease. It can range from well-localized infections of low severity to severe infections with potential for dissemination to spread through the facial planes of the head and neck, which can lead to compromised airways, resulting in septicemia and death. These infections can reach several spaces, among them the masticatory space, composed of fascial spaces: subassayeric, pterygomandibular, deep temporal and superficial temporal. These four compartments of the masticatory space behave clinically as separate spaces, since in most cases only one compartment becomes infected, however, severe or long-lasting infections may involve all four compartments. The goal of the present study is to present the clinical management of disseminated odontogenic infection for superficial temporal space. A 51-year-old female patient with a history of odontogenic infection, disseminated to the superficial temporal space, having as the etiological factor the root rest of unit 13. Outpatient drainage of contents and antibiotic therapy-associated was performed. After the period of 07 days, there was remission of the condition. Although uncommon, odontogenic infections originating from anterior teeth may spread to masticatory spaces. Regardless of its origin, it must be treated immediately, draining the compromised space, identifying the cause and eliminating it, and associating the use of antibiotics as a coadjuvante(AU)

RESUMEN

The surgeon needs to have an inexpensive, available, nontoxic, and practical disinfectant that is effective in sanitizing against the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) virus. The purpose of this article was to review the evidence for using hypochlorous acid in the office setting on a daily basis. The method used to assemble recommendations was a review of the literature including evidence for this solution when used in different locations and industries other than the oral-maxillofacial clinic facility. The results indicate that this material can be used with a high predictability for disinfecting against the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) virus.

RESUMEN

Household isolation measures to reduce coronavirus transmission during the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in increased risk of domestic violence and abuse (DVA). DVA physical injury most frequently involves the face. Dentists, dental care professionals, oral surgeons and oral and maxillofacial surgeons all have a critical part to play in identifying patients experiencing DVA, who present with dental and facial injury, and in making referrals to specialist agencies. This paper describes how to ask questions about DVA sensitively and how to make an appropriate referral. Early intervention and referral to a DVA advocate can prevent an abusive situation becoming worse with more intense violence. It can save lives.

RESUMEN

Several uncertainties exist regarding how we will conduct our clinical, didactic, business, and social activities as the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) global pandemic abates and social distancing guidelines are relaxed. We anticipate changes in how we interact with our patients and other providers, how patient workflow is designed, the methods used to conduct our teaching sessions, and how we perform procedures in different clinical settings. The objective of the present report is to review some of the changes to consider in the clinical and academic oral and maxillofacial surgery workflow and, allow for a smoother transition, with less risk to our patients and healthcare personnel. New infection control policies should be strictly enforced and monitored in all clinical and nonclinical settings, with an overall goal to decrease the risk of exposure and transmission. Screening for COVID-19 symptoms, testing when indicated, and establishing the epidemiologic linkage will be crucial to containing and preventing new COVID-19 cases until a vaccine or an alternate solution is available. Additionally, the shortage of essential supplies such as drugs and personal protective equipment, the design and ventilation of workspaces and waiting areas, the increase in overhead costs, and the possible absence of staff, if quarantine is necessary, must be considered. This shift in our workflow and patient care paths will likely continue in the short-term at least through 2021 or the next 12 to 24 months. Thus, we must prioritize surgery, balancing patient preferences and healthcare personnel risks. We have an opportunity now to make changes and embrace telemedicine and other collaborative virtual platforms for teaching and clinical care. It is crucial that we maintain COVID-19 awareness, proper surveillance in our microenvironments, good clinical judgment, and ethical values to continue to deliver high-quality, economical, and accessible patient care.

RESUMEN

PURPOSE: The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has had an immense impact on the healthcare industry. Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS) clinical practice uniquely exposes providers to COVID-19. The purpose of the present study was to understand the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on OMS residency training programs (OMSRTPs): 1) training and education; 2) availability and use of personal protective equipment (PPE); 3) experience with, and use of, screening and viral testing; 4) resident experience; and 5) program director (PD) experience and observations of the immediate and future effects on OMSRTPs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: OMS residents and PDs in OMSRTPs in the United States were invited to participate in the present cross-sectional study from April 1, 2020 to May 1, 2020. A 51-question survey was used to evaluate the effects of COVID-19 on OMSRTPs and to assess the 5 specific aims of the present study. RESULTS: A total of 160 residents and 13 PDs participated in the survey, representing 83% of US states or territories with OMSRTPs. Almost all residents (96.5%) reported modifications to their training program, and 14% had been reassigned to off-service clinical rotations (eg, medicine, intensive care unit). The use of an N95 respirator mask plus standard PPE precautions during aerosol-generating procedures varied by procedure location, with 36.8% reporting limited access to these respirators. Widespread screening practices were in use, with 83.6% using laboratory-based viral testing. Residents scheduled to graduate in 2022 were most concerned with the completion of the graduation requirements and with decreased operative experience. Most residents (94.2%) had moved to web-based didactics, and a plurality (47%) had found increased value in the didactics. CONCLUSIONS: Sweeping alterations to OMS clinical practice have occurred for those in OMSRTPs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the overall OMSRTP response has been favorable, residents' concerns regarding the ubiquitous availability of appropriate PPE, operative experience, and completion of graduation requirements requires further deliberation.

RESUMEN

La pandemia por la nueva infección respiratoria conocida como enfermedad coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), causada por el virus SARS-CoV-2, ha desencadenado una perturbación sin precedentes en la actividad habitual de los servicios de cirugía oral y maxilofacial en España, retrasando la atención rutinaria de pacientes e intervenciones quirúrgicas programadas. Los cirujanos orales y maxilofaciales son uno de los colectivos sanitarios con mayor riesgo de infección nosocomial por el estrecho contacto que se produce con los pacientes asintomáticos y sintomáticos con infección por SARS-CoV-2 a través de la cavidad oral y orofaringe. El propósito del presente documento ha sido actualizar la evidencia disponible para el manejo y tratamiento seguro y efectivo en consulta, cirugías ambulatorias, programadas y urgentes y hospitalización, minimizando al mismo tiempo, tanto como sea posible, el riesgo de contagio para el cirujano oral y maxilofacial, personal sanitario y pacientes. Este documento pretende esclarecer los aspectos más significativos y crear un protocolo común de manejo de pacientes con COVID-19 en cirugía oral y maxilofacial durante la fase aguda de propagación y de control posterior de la pandemia en nuestro país


The pandemic due to the new respiratory infection known as coronavirus 2019 disease (COVID-19), caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, has triggered an unprecedented disruption in the normal activity of oral and maxillofacial surgery departments in Spain, delaying routine patient care and elective surgical interventions. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are one of the healthcare groups with the highest risk of nosocomial infection because of the close contact that occurs with asymptomatic and symptomatic patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection through the oral cavity and oropharynx. The purpose of this document has been to update the available evidence for the safe and effective management and treatment in outpatient clinic, ambulatory, elective and emergency surgeries, and hospitalization, while minimizing as much as possible the risk of infection for the oral and maxillofacial surgeon, health workers and patients. This document aims to clarify the most significant aspects and create a common protocol for the management of patients with COVID-19 in oral and maxillofacial surgery during the acute stage of spread and subsequent control of the pandemic in our country

RESUMEN

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is rapidly changing our habits. To date, April 12, 2020, the virus has reached 209 nations, affecting 1.8 million people and causing more than 110,000 deaths. Maxillofacial surgery represents an example of a specialty that has had to adapt to this outbreak, because of the subspecialties of oncology and traumatology. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of this outbreak on the specialty of maxillofacial surgery and how the current situation is being managed on a worldwide scale. To achieve this goal, the authors developed an anonymous questionnaire which was posted on the internet and also sent to maxillofacial surgeons around the globe using membership lists from various subspecialty associations. The questionnaire asked for information about the COVID-19 situation in the respondent's country and in their workplace, and what changes they were facing in their practices in light of the outbreak. The objective was not only to collect and analyse data, but also to highlight what the specialty is facing and how it is handling the situation, in the hope that this information will be useful as a reference in the future, not only for this specialty, but also for others, should COVID-19 or a similar global threat arise again.

RESUMEN

Background: Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) is a dental specialty evolving from the anatomical region of head and neck. Differing from the belief, its scope does not start and end with teeth. The aim of the study was to survey the perception of OMFS among dental, medical, and paramedical professionals. Materials and Methods: A structured questionnaire cross-sectional survey made up of 17 clinical situations pertaining to various complaints of patients was distributed among 50 medical and dental undergraduates, 50 medical and dental practitioners, and 50 general populations with a total number of 250 samples who were selected randomly. The collected data was tabulated using Microsoft excel for any predictable patterns. The results were analyzed taking absolute percentages of the responses into consideration. Results: The results were compiled and tabulated and the data analyzed. While wisdom tooth removal, trauma, and facial bone fractures were recognized to be mainly treated by maxillofacial surgeons, the other maxillofacial problems were poorly recognized to be treated by our specialty. In our study, 67.3% of general public and 62.4% of medical professionals approached other medical specialist for the clinical conditions. The Chi-square results of few clinical situations were statistically significant with a P value of less than 0.05, which suggest that there is indeed a statistically significant difference between the responses of medical profession and the public on whom to approach regarding certain clinical cases. Conclusion: The study revealed that the majority of the public are lacking in knowledge about the benefits that the specialty can offer. It has been found that even though the Medical professionals are better informed, lacunae existed about information as to where our major activity lies. If patients are to have access to the best treatment available, it is essential that we edify the public about the scope of our specialty.

RESUMEN

A novel ß-coronavirus (2019-nCOV), identified in Wuhan City in late December 2019, is generating a rapid and tragic health emergency in Italy due to the need to provide assistance to an uncontrollable number of infected patients and, at the same time, treat all the non-deferrable oncological and traumatic maxillofacial conditions. This article summarises the clinical and surgical experience of Maxillofacial Surgery Unit of "Magna Graecia" University (Catanzaro -Italy) during the COVID-19 pandemic and would like to provide a number of recommendations that should facilitate the scheduling process of surgical activities during the COVID-19 pandemic and reduce the risk of infection among healthcare professionals.

RESUMEN

Maxillofacial departments in 23 surgical units in Italy have been increasingly involved in facing the COVID-19 emergency. Elective surgeries have been progressively postponed to free up beds and offer human and material resources to those infected. We compiled an inventory of 32 questions to evaluate the impact of the SARS-COV2 epidemic on maxillofacial surgery in 23 selected Italian maxillofacial departments. The questionnaire focused on three different aspects: the variation of the workload, showing both a reduction of the number of team members (-16% among specialists, -11% among residents) due to reallocation or contamination and a consistent reduction of elective activities (the number of outpatient visits cancelled during the first month of the COVID-19 epidemic was about 10 000 all over Italy), while only tumour surgery and trauma surgery has been widely guaranteed; the screening procedures on patients and physicians (22% of maxillofacial units found infected surgeons, which is 4% of all maxillofacial surgeons); and the availability of Personal Protective Equipment, is only considered to be partial in 48% of Maxillofacial departments. This emergency has forced those of us in the Italian health system to change the way we work, but only time will prove if these changes have been effective.

RESUMEN

BACKGROUND: Oral surgeons are exposed to blood spatter. The authors evaluated the prevalence of and risk factors for blood spatter in facial masks during oral surgery procedures. METHODS: The authors evaluated facial masks and caps of oral surgeons and assistants for blood spatter using the Kastle-Meyer test after different oral surgery procedures. The authors correlated the presence of blood spatter to the clinician, type of surgery, surgery time, and self-awareness of blood spatter, using χ2 and t tests. RESULTS: The authors analyzed a total of 202 samples and detected blood particles in 46% of the samples in both operators and assistants. The authors observed blood contamination in all types of procedures, and in 4% of the cases, the internal part of the visor was also affected. Clinicians were unaware of the presence of blood spatter in 40% of the cases. CONCLUSIONS: The risk of clinician contamination with blood during tooth extraction and implant placement was 46%. The risk increased with the use of high-speed instruments and longer surgery time. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: The use of facial protective devices should be mandatory during oral surgery procedures to avoid blood contamination, especially when rotary devices are used. In many cases, imperceptible blood spatter is present.

RESUMEN

AIM: The aim of the current study was to correlate the clinical symptoms that are associated with temporomandibular disorder (TMD) to the osseous changes occurring in the affected temporomandibular joint (TMJ), as detected by cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The clinical data of patients that presented with TMJ symptoms was collected and correlated with the CBCT findings for the same patients. Patient recruitment took place over a 1-year period in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology department of the same academic institution. RESULTS: There was a limited mouth opening (MO) (<3 cm). More importantly, there was a statistically significant positive relation between pain and loss of cortication. CONCLUSION: There was no significant correlation between CBCT findings consistent with TMJ degeneration and clinical symptoms. CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE: Cone-beam computed tomography evaluation of the TMJ is important for providing information about the state and level of TMJ degeneration if any. However, clinical findings should be the most important factor when considering management options for symptomatic TMJ.

RESUMEN

The emergence of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by the SARS-CoV-2 (SC2) virus, in late December 2019 has placed an overwhelming strain on healthcare institutions nationwide. The modern healthcare system has never managed a pandemic of this magnitude, the ramifications of which will undoubtedly lead to lasting changes in policy and protocol development for viral testing guidelines, personal protective equipment (PPE), surgical scheduling, and residency education and training. The State of Washington had the first reported case and death related to COVID-19 in the United States. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons have a unique risk of exposure to SC2 and developing COVID-19 because of our proximity of working in and around the oropharynx and nasopharynx. The present report has summarized the evolution of COVID-19 guidelines in 4 key areas: 1) preoperative SC2 testing; 2) PPE stewardship; 3) surgical scheduling guidelines; and 4) resident education and training for oral and maxillofacial surgery at the University of Washington, Seattle, Washington.

RESUMEN

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has affected the world in unprecedented ways. It is clear that this pandemic, unlike any public health challenge in recent memory, has the potential to fundamentally alter the delivery of many healthcare services, including the practice of oral and maxillofacial surgery. In response to this global health crisis, the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS) COVID-19 Response Conference was held virtually on April 9, 2020, organized by oral and maxillofacial surgeons (OMSs) and administrators from multiple institutions to provide a forum for OMSs to discuss how COVID-19 has affected the specialty. As evidence-based information on COVID-19 continues to emerge, the present report serves as a method to disseminate the current opinions and management strategies from a variety of experts in OMS.
