11/39. An iatrogenic foreign body (dental bur) in the maxillary antrum: a report of two cases.

    Two cases of foreign bodies of the antrum are reported. One was a turbine bur which presumably entered through an oro-antral fistula after a tooth extraction. The other was also a turbine bur where the mode of entry was not clear (lack of oro-antral fistula), but it presumably entered through the socket of the extracted tooth. The mucosa of the antrum appeared normal in spite of the lengthy presence of the foreign body.

12/39. Use of the serratus anterior free flap to treat a recurrent oroantral fistula.

    We describe the successful use of the serratus anterior free muscle flap to obliterate a recurrent oroantral fistula in a 39-year old male who 19 years before this surgery had sustained a high velocity impact to his right face with multiple subsequent corrective surgeries. There was no complication from the serratus anterior free flap surgery and no postoperative scapular winging. The serratus anterior muscle is a versatile flap and ideal for various defects. It should be considered for obliteration of oroantral fistulas when no local or regional tissue is available because of previous surgery or trauma.

13/39. Management of arsenic trioxide necrosis in the maxilla.

    Historically, pulp-necrotizing agents were commonly used in endodontic treatments. They act quickly and devitalize the pulp within a few days. However, they are cytotoxic to gingiva and bone. If such an agent diffuses out of the cavity, it can readily cause widespread necrosis of gingiva and bone, which can lead to osteomyelitis of the jaws. Although the use of arsenic trioxide can cause severe damage to surrounding tissues, producing complications, it is still used in certain areas in the world. This article presents and discusses two cases of tissue necrosis and their surgical management. These cases showed severe alveolar bone loss in the maxilla, which affected the patients' quality of life and limited the restorative possibilities. As dentists, we should be aware of the hazardous effects of arsenic trioxide and should abandon its use. Because of its cytotoxicity, there is no justification for the use of arsenic trioxide in the modern dental practice.

14/39. Palatal perforation associated with intranasal prescription narcotic abuse.

    BACKGROUND: Palatal perforation resulting from insufflation of cocaine has been well documented. In comparison, reports of destructive orofacial lesions resulting from intranasal abuse of prescription narcotics are rare. We present the clinical and histologic findings in a case of palatal perforation arising in a patient abusing a prescription opioid drug. The patient denied any history of cocaine use but admitted to habitually crushing and snorting a hydrocodone/acetaminophen preparation.Study design The patient presented to our clinic seeking resolution of speech difficulties associated with an oroantral fistula. Surgical repair of the defect had been attempted unsuccessfully in the past. In addition to blood and chemistry panels, endoscopic examination was conducted, with removal of several biopsy specimens for histologic evaluation and flow cytometry. biopsy specimens included both lesional and perilesional tissue from within the oral and nasopharyngeal cavities. culture and cytology for fungal organisms were also performed. RESULTS: Histopathologic examination revealed normal mucosa with diffuse and focal inflammatory changes and no evidence of malignancy. Polarizable foreign material was noted in the specimens. The absence of lymphoid neoplasia was confirmed by flow cytometric analysis. The toxicology panel was positive for the presence of opiates in the blood. culture and cytology were positive for candidal organisms. A palatal obturator was fabricated for the patient, producing significant improvement in the quality of speech. CONCLUSIONS: This may represent a case of palatal perforation resulting from abuse of a drug other than cocaine. The potential for drugs other than cocaine to produce destructive orofacial lesions should be considered.

15/39. Dental implant therapy in the treatment of an oroantral communication after exodontia.

    A new technique in which a dental implant was the ultimate therapy for the treatment of an oroantral communication (OAC) that was created subsequent to the extraction of a maxillary first molar is described. A search of the English-speaking literature has not revealed implant therapy as part of documented modalities for the treatment of an OAC created following dental extraction. The OAC was closed by a sandwich technique that uses two resorbable membrane materials (Bio-Gide, Osteohealth, Shirley, NY) that surround a bone substitute (Bio-Oss, Osteohealth). This procedure, together with additional onlay grafting with the same bone substitute, was used also to regenerate subantral bone to enable the subsequent placement of an endosseous implant after 12 months. An 8-month postoperative radiograph showed creation of a new maxillary sinus bony floor and subantral bone of good quality, and height that can permit the placement of an endosseous dental implant.

16/39. A new surgical management for oro-antral communication: the resorbable guided tissue regeneration membrane--bone substitute sandwich technique.

    This paper describes a new technique for the closure of oro-antral fistula/communication, in which both hard tissue (bone) and soft tissue closure is achieved. The sandwich technique utilizes a suitable bone grafting material sandwiched between two sheaths of Biogide (a resorbable membrane) for the hard tissue closure of oro-antral communication post traumatic exodontia. The bone grafting material utilized for this case was Bio-oss. The result obtained was excellent with regeneration of sufficient bony tissue to allow placement of an endosseous implant. This sandwich technique is a simple and excellent technique for the closure of oro-antral communication, especially when subsequent placement of endosseous implant is considered without the need of donor site surgery for bone grafting. The otorhinolaryngologists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons should find this technique very useful in the closure of oro-antral fistulae.

17/39. Chronic odontogenic maxillary sinusitis.

    The aim of the present study was to estimate average age of the patients in both sexes treated for MS, distribution by sex, amount of dexter and sinister MS with and without the fistulas into the maxillary sinus, with and without the foreign-bodies, length of stay in the Department of Maxillofacial Surgery at Kaunas Hospital of University of medicine during the period from 1999 till 2004. The retrospective data analysis of the patients' treated from chronic MS was made. 346 patients (213 females and 133 males) were treated for chronic MS. 55 cases of chronic dexter MS with a fistula into maxillary sinus, 98 cases of chronic dexter MS without a fistula, 45 cases of chronic sinister MS with a fistula, 112 cases chronic sinister MS without a fistula, 16 cases of foreign-bodies in dexter maxillary sinus, 20 cases of foreign-bodies in sinister maxillary sinus have been detected. The main age of the female was 46.6 /-15.0, the main age of the men was 42.1 /-14.4. Statictically significant difference in the age difference of the women and the men was found (p=0.0024). It was determined, that females diagnosed and treated with chronic MS were 1.6 times more than males during the period from 1999 till 2004 in Kaunas Hospital of University of medicine. Females treated for chronic MS were 4.5 years older than males.

19/39. Herniation of the antral membrane through an extraction site. Report of a case.

    A case of herniation of the antral membrane through a recent extraction site is presented. The lesion was initially diagnosed as a tumor by the referring dentist. Oroantral fistulas are not an uncommon finding after dental extractions. It is rare, however, to see herniation of the antral membrane with large polyps extending through the fistula into the oral cavity. A search of the literature revealed only two other such cases. Surgical removal of the polyps and closure of the oroantral fistula by means of a buccal sliding flap technique is discussed.

20/39. A new approach for repair of oro-antral-nasal fistulae. The anteriorly based buccinator myomucosal island flap.

    Oral-antral-nasal fistula (OAN) is a commonly encountered clinical problem. The literature is filled with a plethora of methods described for closing a persistent OAN. Local flaps are available to close minor to moderate defects, however, large fistulae can be a very challenging reconstructive problem. Various areas of the oral cavity have been used for closure of OAN. We describe a technique to reconstruct the oral cavity, in this case an OAN. The anteriorly based buccinator myomuosal island pedicle flap (BMIP) provides an alternative method for reconstructing the oral cavity. An extensive review of the literature as well as the anatomy of the buccinator, its reconstructive capabilities, and two case reports are included.
