  • [Title] The relation between bone mineral density in the heel and pixel intensity in the mandibular jaw bone among elderly women.
  • OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to investigate the correlation between pixel intensity (PI) in digital radiographs of the lower jaw and bone mineral density (BMD) in the heels of post-menopausal women (as measured with DXL, a combination of dual energy X-ray absorptiometry and lasers).
  • METHODS: Two intraoral periapical digital radiographs were taken in the right and left mandible premolar region, and the digital images were analysed by a computer program (Dimaxis) regarding PI.
  • RESULTS: A significant correlation was found between the PI in the left (P = 0.001) and right (P = 0.004) mandible and the BMD of the left heel for the whole group.
  • CONCLUSION: A positive correlation was found between PI in digital radiographs of the mandible and the BMD of the heel.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Tumours and tumour-like lesions of the lower face at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Ghana--an eight year study.
  • BACKGROUND: The oro-facial region including the jawbones, the maxilla and mandible and related tissues can be the site of a multitude of neoplastic conditions.
  • These tumours have a predilection for the entire facial region; however, odontogenic tumours tend to affect the mandible more than the maxilla, especially, in West African children.
  • We report results from a retrospective study spanning eight years on the frequency, clinical presentation, sites and character of lower face tumours seen in the main referral hospital in Ghana.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Records of consecutive patients of all age and sex seen by the first author's team at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital with tumours affecting the lower part of the face from January 1996 to December 2003 were retrieved, coded and entered into a database.
  • RESULTS: A total of 394 patients with oro-facial swellings were retrieved from the registry out of which 210 had lower face tumour and tumour-like lesions.
  • The most common clinical presenting features were mandibular facial swelling (63%), intra-oral swelling (55%), pain (41%) and ulceration (29%).
  • The tumours were predominantly found in the right (43%), anterior (19%) and left (18%) aspects of the lower face.
  • Sixty-two (36.3%) had benign odontogenic tumours and thirty-one (18.1%) had non-odontogenic tumour-like lesions.
  • Fifty-four (62%) of malignant tumours were squamous cell carcinoma; 58 (93.6%) of the benign odontogenic tumours were classified as ameloblastoma.
  • The mean age at presentation of all lesions was 40.4 years with over 50% of benign lesions in patients aged between 11 and 30 years.
  • CONCLUSION: Tumours and tumour-like lesions of the lower face comprising the mandible, tongue and adjacent structures are a diverse group of neoplasm and are seen commonly in practice of Maxillofacial surgery.
  • Both malignant and benign tumours are seen in the Ghanaian population.
  • In the present study, SCC and ameloblastoma were the commonest malignant and benign odontogenic tumours seen respectively; the two representing more than 65% of all tumours.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Extraction of a deeply impacted lower third molar by sagittal split osteotomy.
  • Extraction of deeply impacted wisdom molars from the lower jaw with the bone osteotomy may necessitate removal of extra bone and complicate the procedure with damage to the inferior alveolar nerve and iatrogenic fractures of the mandible.
  • In such cases, the sagittal split osteotomy offers excellent exposure to the operative field and minimizes bone loss at the mandibular ramus.
  • The presented case includes removal of a deeply impacted lower third molar presenting mild infection from the mid-ramus using the sagittal split of the mandible.
  • The sagittal split osteotomy, which appears to be a reliable technique, should be the method of preference when lower molars are deeply positioned between buccal and lingual cortices.

  • By 11 days (stage 3), the chondrocranium is nearly fully formed; however, few intramembranous bones can be detected.
  • One week later (stage 4), many of the intramembranous upper and lower jaw bones are visible but the calvaria are not present.
  • Between stages 4 (day 18) and 7 (day 44), the complete set of intramembranous bones in the jaws and calvaria develops.
  • In contrast to other reptiles, there are two rows of teeth in the upper jaw.
  • The outer tooth row is attached to the maxillary and premaxillary bones, whereas the inner row is attached to the pterygoid and palatine bones.
  • Micro-CT analysis reveals that all the young membranous bones can be recognized even out of the context of the skull.
  • These data demonstrate intrinsic patterning of the intramembranous bones, even though they form without a cartilaginous template.
  • In addition, intramembranous bone morphology is established prior to muscle function, which can influence bone shape through differential force application.
  • Thus, reptilian animal models will offer unique opportunities for understanding the early influences that contribute to perinatal bone shape.

  • BACKGROUND: Osteoma is a benign often asymptomatic neoplasm, consisting of well-differentiated mature bone.
  • This paper reports a case of peripheral osteoma located in the anterior mandibular region and provides a review of the literature about this lesion in the jaws.
  • PATIENT AND METHODS: A 43-year-old white woman presented with a swelling in the left mandible of 7 years duration.
  • Peripheral osteomas are more frequent in the mandible than the maxilla and the cancellous type was most frequent; males and females are equally affected in the mandible; the age range was 9-85 years.
  • CONCLUSION: The peripheral type of osteoma is most common in the lower jaws, occurs at the surface of the cortical bone and is sessile or pedicled.

13. Papazyan A: [Results of treatment of a distal deep bite according to the cephalometric analysis]. Georgian Med News; 2008 Oct;(163):25-9

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Aim of the research is analyze of changes of facial cranium bones morphometric parameters as a result of distal overbite orthodontic care.
  • On the basis of examination of 214 head telerentgenogramms in lateral projections which where received before and after orthodontic care, facial cranium bones sizes where defined, that changed as overbite orthodontic treatment result with the account of main direction of bones' development.
  • Analyzing angular linear sizes and their correlation in case of distal overbite, there were observed teeth position disorder, alveolar arches, jaw-bones and their characteristic sizes.
  • Among patients with mixed overbite in the period of jaw-bones active grow the treatment was based on 2 phases - 1) earl orthodontic therapy with the use of "2*4" system with labial bumper in space of lower bone, 2) final phase was held with the help of straight wire technique.
  • In the period of second teeth simultaneously with straight wire technique we used occlusive brackets fixed on upper incisor teeth palatal surface: among 28 patients we have fixed lingual brackets of "Ormco" production on upper incisors, among 79 patients we have stuck composite occlusive plates, intermandibular draft was used, which sponsored upper lower jaw-bones lateral teeth alveolar prolongation.
  • In the process of care advantageous alveolar compensation was fixed; facial esthetic and jaw-bones position was changing for the better.
  • In case of horizontal and neutral types of jaw-bones growth the correction of incisor overbite depth happens on the account of alveolar height reduction in space of upper and lower jaw-bones incisors and that parameter increase in space of both jaw-bones lateral teeth.
  • In case of vertical type of jaw growth alveolar shortening in space of upper jaw-bone was observed and in a less degree- of upper and lower jaw lateral teeth, and, also, of lower jaw incisors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Immediate reconstruction of a large mandibular defect of locally invasive benign lesions (a new method).
  • Locally invasive benign tumor and large lesions such as ameloblastoma, giant cell granuloma, odontogenic keratocyst, and odontogenic myxoma are a benign, invasive, lesions of the jaws that predominantly affects the mandible.
  • Despite the benign nature of these lesions, there is a high rate of local recurrence after curettage, which usually requires resection.
  • An intraoral approach provides wide and fast access to the mandible.
  • This approach represents a less invasive alternative that provides access to the mandible for curative resection of benign tumors with minimal postoperative sequelae.
  • We explored the use of the less invasive and more esthetic incision as an approach to resection and reconstruction of the mandible.
  • This approach resulted in a minimal esthetic and functional defect even though a massive mandibular resection was performed.

NCI CPTC Antibody Characterization Program. NCI CPTC Antibody Characterization Program .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The OMF Pathology Department Registry was searched for cases coded from 1990 to the present as "SEF," "fibrosarcoma not otherwise specified" or "neoplasm of uncertain histiogenesis."
  • Tumor location included the infra-temporal fossa, buccal mucosa (recurrence extending into bone), anterior mandible (intraosseous primary, focally extending into soft tissue), and left parotid and submandibular gland (with metaplastic bone) regions.
  • Tumor sizes ranged from 1.0 to 5.7 cm, median 3.5 cm.
  • The spindled to primarily epithelioid tumor cells formed moderately cellular sheets and cords of irregularly contoured medium to large, round to oval, occasionally overlapping nuclei, indistinct nucleoli, wispy eosinophilic (retracting) cytoplasm, and distinctive cytoplasmic borders, embedded in osteoid-like stroma.
  • Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were positive for vimentin, 1 case focally for CD34, whereas all cases were negative for S100 protein, keratins, EMA, desmin, and SMA.
  • OMFRSEF occur in adults in various locations, but with a common propensity to involve bone; there is recurrent potential and morbidity with higher grade lesions.
  • The differential diagnosis for these tumors in this site includes sclerosing carcinoma, Ewing/PNET, osteosarcoma, osteoblastoma, and benign and malignant myoepithelial salivary gland tumors.
  • The collagen, focal spindle cell features, HPC-like vasculature, and weak focal CD34 reactivity in one case might have raised a possible relationship between OMFRSEF and low grade malignant solitary fibrous tumor, but the intraosseous propensity, epithelioid features and relative lack of CD34 make this a distinctive entity.

  • Keratocysts most commonly occur as single lesions in the jaw of otherwise healthy persons.
  • The mandible, especially the third molar region, the angle of the mandible and the ascending ramus are involved far more frequently than the maxilla.
  • This led to the tentative suggestion that the keratocyst might be a benign cystic neoplasm rather than simply an odontogenic cyst.

  • The microscopic examination indicated a diagnosis of ameloblastoma.
  • Ameloblastoma is a benign epithelial neoplasm of odontogenic origin, and depending on the stage of development, it can mimic a periapical lesion and therefore should be considered in establishing an endodontic differential diagnosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Multiple cemento-ossifying fibromas of the jaw: a very rare diagnosis].
  • The cemento-ossifying fibromas (COF) of the jaws are well circumscribed, generally slow-growing, benign lesions which enlarge in an expansive manner.
  • The term"cemento-ossifying fibroma"is used to describe fibrous lesions containing calcifications with strong similarity between bone and cementum.
  • Although WHO and some authors regard the cementifying fibroma (CF) as an odontogenic tumor and consider ossifying fibroma (OF) separately as non-odontogenic neoplasm, there is general agreement that CF and OF represent only histologic variants of the same lesion.
  • The case of a 36-year old woman with multiple cemento-ossifying fibromas of the mandible and maxilla demonstrates the diagnostic procedures and a possible therapeutic strategy for this rare lesion.

  • Osteoblastoma is a benign neoplasm of bone characterized by a proliferation of osteoblasts forming bone trabeculae set in a vascularized fibrous connective tissue stroma.
  • We report 24 examples of this neoplasm arising in the maxilla and mandible and compare the clinical and radiographic characteristics of this neoplasm to 53 previously reported examples of osteoblastoma and osteoid osteoma in the jaws.
  • When all cases are combined, a predominant trend is observed whereby osteoblastoma occurs predominantly on the left side of the posterior mandible and is associated with pain, tenderness, and discomfort.
  • We also provide a rationale for use of the term "osteoblastoma" for any benign osteoblastic neoplasm arising in the jaws.

  • [Title] Aggressive pregnancy tumor mimicking a malignant neoplasm: a case report.
  • AIM: The aim of this report is to present the management of an aggressive, highly proliferative pregnancy tumor with clinical and radiographic characteristics highly suggestive of a malignant neoplasm.
  • BACKGROUND: Pregnancy tumor is a benign hyperplastic gingival lesion occurring during pregnancy that is indistinguishable from a pyogenic granuloma arising in nonpregnant females, or in males.
  • CASE DESCRIPTION: A 28-year-old woman at four months of gestation was referred for a massive gingival swelling (5.5 cm in greatest diameter) on the mandibular left side.
  • Advanced alveolar bone loss also was found beneath the lesion.
  • A malignant process was suspected, and an incisional biopsy revealed a pregnancy tumor.
  • SUMMARY: Pregnancy tumor represents an important differential diagnosis of oral masses and can behave in a very aggressive fashion, mimicking a malignant tumor.
  • CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE: This lesion should always be included in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue masses in a pregnant woman even if the lesion is clinically very aggressive.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In 1992 The World Health Organization adopted a new classification that included these fibromas as benign osseous tumours.
  • While such tumours of the mandible are common, those of the maxilla are rare.
  • The differential diagnosis included fibrous dysplasia, osteoid osteoma, osteoblastoma, chronic sclerosing osteomyelitis, ameloblastoma, squamous cell carcinoma of the maxillary sinus, calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumour (Pindborg tumour) and calcifying odontogenic cyst (Gorlin cyst).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC), first identified as a separate and distinct lesion by Gorlin et al. in 1962, is an uncommon benign lesion, consisting of a proliferation of odontogenic epithelium and scattered nests of ghost cells and calcifications that may form the lining of a cyst or present as a solid mass.
  • The COC occurs alone or occasionally with odontomas or other odontogenic tumors, and it is this variable histology and clinical behavior that has raised the question of whether or not it is a cyst or a true neoplasm.
  • The odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) is a locally aggressive odontogenic cyst lined by parakeratinizing epithelium that also exhibits characteristics of a neoplasm, including rapid growth, a high rate of recurrence when treated conservatively, and the presence of a gene mutation.
  • We describe a patient diagnosed with an OKC of the mandible that arose simultaneously with a COC of the anterior maxilla.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVES: The aim of this work was to report on the clinical, radiological and histological characteristics of ameloblastomas concerning bone structures of the face, rare but not exceptional tumours, and to communicate our experience of their treatment.
  • The diagnostic context, the treatment and the development of the disease are given in detail, emphasizing the frequency of local relapse of this histologically benign condition.
  • The frequency of local relapse in the cases of close resection, leaving in place micro-foci, justifies enlarged intervention, which is often bone destructive.
  • CONCLUSION: When the continuity of the bone is interrupted, in particular at the level of the mandible, and if the general condition of the patient permits, repair is preferable.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Nerve sheath myxoma (NSM) is an extremely rare benign neoplasm in the oral cavity.
  • METHODS: Intraoral examination revealed a painless and well-defined nodule in the lingual gingival mucosa of the right mandibular lateral incisor, which measured approximately 1.0 cm in diameter.
  • According to the histopathologic and immunohistochemical features, the diagnosis of NSM was established.
  • CONCLUSION: Although NSM is an extremely rare oral tumor, it should be considered in the clinical differential diagnosis of gingival nodules.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective survey of odontogenic tumors based on the classification of Kramer et al was undertaken at the Maxillofacial Unit, Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Kaduna, Nigeria, from all histopathologically proven cases of tumors and tumor-like lesions of the oral and perioral structures.
  • RESULTS: There were 990 tumor and tumor-like lesions of the oral and perioral structures, of which 318 were odontogenic tumors (32%).
  • Twelve histopathologic types of odontogenic tumors were found with more benign (n=314; 99%) than malignant (n=4; 1%).
  • Ameloblastoma made up 233 (73%) of the tumors, followed by odontogenic myxoma (n=38; 12%), ameloblastic fibroma (n=9; 3%), and the adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (2%).
  • Among 275 surgically treated odontogenic tumors, enucleation was performed in 64 cases (23%), dentoalveolar segment resection with preservation of lower border of the mandible (n=33; 12%), segmental resection (n=168; 61%), and composite resection (n=9; 3%); 1 case was deemed inoperable.
  • CONCLUSION: Ameloblastoma is a fairly common tumor of Nigerian Africans accounting for 73% of odontogenic tumors and 24% of all tumors and tumor-like lesions of the oral and perioral structures.
  • Various forms of resection are practiced to eradicate the tumor in view of the late presentation in our environment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Ameloblastic carcinoma is a very rare malignant odontogenic neoplasm of the mandible and maxilla, accounting for some 66 reported cases.
  • The initial microscopic evaluation of the biopsy and radiographic findings were consistent with benign peripheral ameloblastoma without cellular atypia and extensive fields of acantomatous pattern, but immunohistochemical investigation found strong positivity for Bcl-2, cytokeratins CAM 5 and 6, and for Ki-67/MIB-1, changing our diagnosis.
  • Cellular features of malignancy in the surgical specimen confirmed the diagnosis of ameloblastic carcinoma.
  • This case of an aggressive ameloblastic carcinoma of the maxillary gingiva that presented with an unusual histological pattern illustrates that these tumors can create a diagnostic challenge that may require extensive surgical sampling and/or removal to establish the diagnosis.

  • The primary tumor revealed typical histological features of benign CEOT showing sheets of polyhedral epithelial cells associated with abundant eosinophilic amyloid-like materials.
  • On the other hand, the locally recurrent tumors had malignant features, such as increased nuclear pleomorphism with frequent mitotic figures and vascular invasion of tumor cells, as well as increased proliferative activity assessed by immunostaining for Ki-67.
  • This suggests that platinum derivatives could be a chemotherapeutic agent of choice against this rare tumor.

  • While osteoblastomas are rare, and their sarcomatous change even rarer, our experience with this case lead us to suggest that a therapeutic preventative approach, involving both chemotherapy and total excision of the tumor, is the regime to adopt with osteoblastomas which involve soft tissues and have radiological features suggesting malignancy.

  • [Title] Extension of Pindborg tumor to the maxillary sinus: a case report.
  • The calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor is a benign epithelial odontogenic lesion that accounts for less than 1% of all odontogenic tumors.
  • It is most frequently seen in the posterior areas of the mandible.
  • This tumor was encased between the right maxillary lateral and canine roots with extension to the maxillary sinus.
  • Histologically, the tumor is composed of sheets of epithelial cells with eosinophilic or clear cytoplasm, intercellular bridges, nuclear pleomorphism, but no mitotic figures, amorphous eosinophilic and calcified materials were seen within the sheets of epithelial cells.

  • [Title] [Diagnosis and surgical approach of parapharyngeal space neoplasms].
  • PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to investigate the diagnosis and reasonable surgical approach for parapharyngeal space neoplasms.
  • 87.5% of the neoplasms were benign and 12.5% were malignant.
  • CT or MRI provided useful information such as their sizes, shapes, extents and the relationship between the neoplasm and surrounding tissues.
  • The trans-cervical approach was used in 10 cases, the trans-parotid approach in 10 cases, the trans-mandible approach in 4 cases.
  • CONCLUSIONS: CT and/or MRI are essentially useful tools for diagnosis and presurgical planning.
  • Based on the trans-cervical approach, according to the size, origination and nature of the neoplasms, choose of the trans-parotid or the trans- mandibular approach for surgical treatment is reasonable.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The ameloblastic carcinoma is a rare malignant odontogenic tumor which rather occurs in the mandible than in the maxilla.
  • Current classifications do not consider benign histopathological features at the primary and malignant features at the metastatic tumour site.
  • In 54% the primary diagnosis was ameloblastic carcinoma, 34.6% revealed pulmonary metastases, however, only in one patient cervical lymph node metastasis could be found.
  • Nineteen of 26 patients (73,1%) were controlled during a median follow-up time of 54,3 months (6 to 156 months); 6 patients died of disease after a median time of 62,7 months (7 to 156 months) after initial diagnosis.
