The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 29 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books.
BioPortfolio aims to cross reference relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with selected topics - speciality.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
We examined the effect of the membranous form of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) on patients with medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging cosmetic surgical procedures. Although different techniques have been introduced for grafting the osteocartilaginous part of the nose, the alar rim remains vastly unexamined. The form and strength of the alar rim are crucial in nasal tip esthetics and function. External valve collapse may occur owing to trauma, congenital weakness, or malposition of the lower lateral cartilage (LLC). Alar pinching and collapse are possible outcomes if there is any over-resection of...
An ectopic accessory parotid gland with a congenital cheek fistula is a rare congenital condition that belongs to the oculoauriculovertebral spectrum. The clinical symptom is generally a cheek fistula. Surgical treatment can include either the removal of the ectopic gland or a duct transposition. We describe a sialendoscopy-assisted duct transposition and its associated surgical management. Sialendoscopy helped identify the fistula tract through the mucosa. Sialendoscopy-assisted duct transposition in treat...
We report a case that shows the pathognomonic orofacial features identified with acromegaly. Unilateral parotid gland enlargement was also present. Our investigation showed that the parotid gland swelling was non-neoplastic and part of the organomegalic complex associated with acromegaly. Parotidomegaly represents a very rare finding in acromegaly.
Facial trauma caused by motorcycle accidents has become a major issue because of its high prevalence and morbidity, causing death and esthetic and functional sequelae in many individuals. This work evaluated helmet and alcohol use and severity of facial fractures in motorcyclists treated at public hospitals in Pernambuco, Brazil.
Knowledge of the bony orbit and how its volume changes are clinically important in addressing traumatic injuries. Restoration of orbital volume in some patients is critical to achieving successful outcomes after such injuries. In this large cadaveric study, we aimed to assess the average volume, range of bony orbit volumes, degree of volume discrepancy between the right and left orbits, and percentage of skulls with 1- and 1.5-mL orbital volume differences via alginate impressions and volume displacement.
The position changing pattern of the condyles after intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO) on the deviated and non-deviated sides is not clearly known. This study was conducted to evaluate the changes in condylar position after IVRO in patients with facial asymmetry and to compare the deviated and non-deviated sides using computed tomography imaging.
Clinical tissue engineering has revolutionized surgery by improving surgical efficiency and decreasing the risks associated with traditional bone graft procurement techniques. Compared with autogenous bone grafts, composite tissue-engineered grafts fulfill the principles of osteoconduction, osteoinduction, and osteogenesis and provide adequate bone volume for maxillofacial reconstruction with less morbidity. The present study aimed to demonstrate the effectiveness, as defined by our success criteria, of a c...
The objective of the present systematic review was to compare the postoperative outcomes between envelope and triangular flaps after mandibular third molar surgery.
We studied the clinical presentation and microbiology of patients with deep neck space infection in a developing nation to aid in determining the relevant, appropriate, and effective empirical antimicrobial treatment. We have also described the demographic data of pediatric versus adult patients and the predominant age-related subtypes of deep neck space infections.
This study evaluated the opinion of different observer groups about the influence of the submental length on perceived attractiveness and when surgical correction was deemed necessary.
Well-defined or standardized tracheostomy decannulation guidelines are not available, and the long-term data on the outcomes in the obese are limited. The purpose of the present study was to determine the outcomes associated with tracheostomy for obese patients from surgery to decannulation. The specific aims were to measure 1) the rate of successful tracheostomy downsize; 2) the rate of successful tracheostomy decannulation; and 3) the associated pre-, intra-, and postoperative subject variables with trach...
The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate a semi-solidifying liquid formula for nasogastric tube (NGT) feeding after oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Reconstruction of symmetry after zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) fractures is essential for esthetic appearance as well as function. Therefore, this study aimed to analyze whether bony facial symmetry in patients surgically treated for unilateral ZMC fractures via intraoperative imaging differs from that of healthy individuals.
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effects of the orthodontic elastic forces used in fixed orthodontic treatment on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) with normal and anteriorly displaced discs.
Removal of foreign bodies in the craniomaxillofacial region can be challenging. The purpose of the present study was to explore the feasibility of using augmented reality (AR) technology to remove craniomaxillofacial foreign bodies.
We assessed the factors in reported oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS) studies associated with the number of citations.
We present our experience with transoral segmental mandibulectomy in conjunction with vascularized osseous mandibular reconstruction using an intraoral anastomosis that is free of extraoral incisions. Virtual surgical planning and intraoperative navigation were used to help achieve this minimally invasive and scar-free approach. In addition, we performed a cadaveric dissection to highlight relevant anatomic details of the facial artery and vein.
Complex orbital fractures can be surgically challenging because the orbital cavity contains several vital anatomic structures and visibility is limited. We present a case in which computer-aided surgical simulation (CASS), surgical navigation (SN), and a patient-specific implant (PSI) were used. Furthermore, the reported data regarding this topic were systematically searched and investigated.
Although bikeshare programs can relieve traffic congestion, concerns for cyclist safety have been reported, secondary to the low frequency of helmet use observed among bikeshare users. The purpose of the present study was to measure and compare the risk of cycling-related maxillofacial injuries in communities with and without bikeshare programs.
