Re: Patient-specific soft tissue reconstruction: an IDEAL stage I report of hemiglossectomy reconstruction and introduction of the PANSOFOS flap: considerations in personalised surgical planning for soft tissue reconstruction of head and neck defects

We read with great interest the first report on PANSOFOS in head and neck using 3D printing technology.1

Computed tomographic indications for occult skull fractures in paediatric head trauma diagnosed at the time of wound closure under general anaesthesia

Children with head injuries commonly present to the emergency department with forehead lacerations, and are frequently referred to the oral and maxillofacial team. Assessing the Glasgow coma scale (GCS) and neurological status of these patients is particularly challenging and there remains marked ambiguity regarding the use of computed tomographic (CT)...

A review of technical notes published in BJOMS: a comparison 10 years on

Technical notes are known to be a popular method of publishing novel surgical techniques, up-to-date technological advances, and tricks of the trade in oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS). The British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (BJOMS) has a dedicated section for such papers, and this article explores the publication of technical notes...

Synovial fluid levels of VEGF and FGF-2 before and after intra-articular injection of hyaluronic acid in patients with temporomandibular disorders: a short-term study

Our purpose was to measure the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) synovial fluid (SF) levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) before and after intra-articular injection of hyaluronic acid (HA) and to investigate the possible mechanism involved in the therapeutic value of HA. We analysed the synovial fluid...

What are the limitations of the non-patient-specific implant in titanium reconstruction of the orbit?

There is ongoing discussion about patient-specific implants (PSI) to reconstruct orbital defects. Although PSI offer excellent clinical outcome, they are expensive. Subsequently, their routine application is not indicated. The purpose of this study was to estimate the frequency of implant malposition and revision procedures after primary orbital repair...

Tamoxifen exposure induces cleft palate in mice

Cleft palate is a common birth defect in mammals, which can be caused by genetic or environmental factors, or both. Decades have witnessed that many environmental exposures during gestation extremely increase the incidence of cleft palate. Tamoxifen (TAM), a widely-used drug in treating breast cancer, has been reported to be associated with craniofacial...

Does the UK undergraduate medical curriculum prepare students in oral and maxillofacial surgery? A scoping review

Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) is one of 10 surgical specialties recognised by the General Medical Council (GMC). The GMC states that newly qualified doctors should be familiar with a wide range of specialties and should refer patients appropriately. However, inadequate awareness of and exposure to OMFS in UK medical schools have been widely...
