1/60. The management of patients with the kasabach-merritt syndrome.

    The kasabach-merritt syndrome comprises consumption coagulation associated with giant haemangioma. A case is reported of disseminated intravascular coagulation complicating dental extraction in a 36-year-old male with this syndrome. The pre-operative management with anticoagulant therapy is discussed and the relevant literature reviewed.

2/60. Hemorrhagic diathesis in a carrier of hemophilia b.

    A carrier of hemophilia b was found to have an unusually low factor ix level of 13 per cent. Her history of previous bleeding and the hospital course following elective dental extractions were consistent with a mild hemorrhagic diathesis. The patient is a member of a rare kindred of hemophiliacs. The mean level of factor ix in 12 carriers in this kindred was 42 per cent, with a range of 13 to 100 per cent. This patient represents the sixth reported case in which a female carrier of factor ix deficiency was symptomatic.

3/60. Chorioepithelioma presenting as a bleeding gingival mass.

    A case is reported in which a very malignant neoplasm appeared clinically to be a pregnancy tumor or a hemangioma. There was, of course, no question as to the cause of death in this particular case. It was of interest because of the rarity of the tumor, the metastasis to the oral cavity, and the fact that the final diagnosis was established from pathologic examination. The case demonstrates, with emphasis, the great importance of biopsy and routine pathologic examination of all tissue for accurate and correct diagnosis, regardless of its clinical appearance.

4/60. A new concept in the control of acute gingival hemorrhage.

    The topical application of epsilon-aminocaproic acid may be life-saving therapy for control of acute gingival hemorrhage in patients who are debilitated because of systemic diseases. When low doses were used, there have been no reports of adverse reactions.

5/60. disseminated intravascular coagulation and fibrinolysis as a cause of postextraction hemorrhage. Report of a case.

    Presented is a case in which severe, prolonged hemorrhage, subsequent to simple dental extractions in an 85-year-old Negro man, was due to disseminated intravascular coagulation, with secondary fibrinolysis resulting from metastatic adenocarcinoma of the prostate gland. The difficulty and delay in diagnosis, selection of proper therapeutic regimen, and complications encountered during treatment are discussed.

6/60. DDAVP (desmopressin; 1-deamino-cys-8-D-arginine-vasopressin) treatment in children with haemophilia B.

    We tested the response to desmopressin (1-deamino-cys-8-D-arginine-vasopressin; DDAVP) in four patients with haemophilia B [factor ix (F IX) at diagnosis 1.4-5%]. The activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) was significantly shortened in all patients. Although there was an up to 1.4-fold increase in F IX levels in three patients, maximal F IX activity remained below 10%. Much more prominent were the increases in F VIII (three- to fourfold), in von willebrand factor antigen (VWF:Ag; 2.5-fold) and particularly in VWF collagen-binding activity (VWF:CBA; fivefold). These changes were reflected by the prophylactic efficacy of DDAVP for dental surgery. After pretesting, DDAVP could be a useful drug for reducing the need for plasma products for prevention of minor surgical bleeding in patients with mild to moderate haemophilia B.

7/60. Managing patients on warfarin therapy: a case report.

    Coagulotherapy is a common therapeutic regimen most frequently utilizing warfarin. This therapy may have important dental ramifications. An understanding of the mechanisms of action and drug interactions may help avoid problems. Questions commonly arise as to what dental procedures may be safely considered when a patient is on anticoagulant therapy. The coagutherapy level is measured in values of the international normalized ratio (INR). Any question about the appropriateness of dental procedures should be referred to the physician prescriber of the anticoagulant therapy. Generally, controlling bleeding is less of a problem than the management of thrombi and vascular occlusion from decreased coagutherapy. A case is presented in which the INR reached a critical value as the result of drug interactions and miscommunication.

8/60. Near-fatal airway obstruction after routine implant placement.

    Implants have gained tremendous popularity over the past two decades, and their placement in the interior edentulous mandible has become routine. A case of near-fatal airway obstruction secondary to sublingual bleeding and hematoma is presented. The complication, anatomy of the area, and previous literature are reviewed, as are precautions to implant placement and other surgical procedures near the floor of the mouth. Although placing dental implants is generally a benign procedure, practitioners must be prepared for potential complications and have a rehearsed plan of action for the treatment of emergent situations. The floor of the mouth contains branches of the submental and sublingual and mylohyoid arteries that may lead to life-threatening complications. This caution obviously extends to any dentoalveolar surgical procedures that concerns the floor of the mouth such as tori removal, extractions, and iatrogenic dental injuries.

9/60. Angina bullosa haemorrhagica: presentation of eight new cases and a review of the literature.

    Angina bullosa haemorrhagica (ABH) describes the acute and sometimes painful onset of oral blood-filled vesicles and bullae not attributable to blood dyscrasia, vesiculo-bullous disorders, systemic diseases or other known causes. The haemorrhagic bullae spontaneously burst after a short time resulting in ragged, often painless, superficial erosions that heal spontaneously within 1 week without scarring. Although the pathogenesis is still unclear, ABH seems to be a multifactorial phenomenon: dental or functional trauma seems to be the major provoking factor. The lesions of ABH can be easily confused with other mucosal diseases. It is important that the presentation of this benign disorder is distinguished from other more serious disorders with similar presenting features. The aim of this paper is to report the clinical features of eight cases of ABH, in an attempt to distinguish ABH from other blistering diseases of oral mucosa and to describe their management.

10/60. Undiagnosed multiple myeloma causing extensive dental bleeding: report of a case and review.

    A case of multiple myeloma causing profuse bleeding during a minor dental surgical procedure is presented. The value of dental radiography in detection of bone changes associated with an undiagnosed case of multiple myeloma is highlighted. We show that the extensive bleeding during the dental procedure could have been prevented if the panoramic radiograph had been evaluated carefully before initiation of the treatment. In addition, we briefly discuss the etiologic factors responsible for the formation of hemostatic abnormalities in multiple myeloma and the value of imaging methods used in diagnostic assessment of the disease.
