Abstract The pathogenesis of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) remains unknown, and the development of a reliable experimental model would help to improve our understanding of it. We used 12 domestic pigs of which 6 made up the experimental group and were treated with zoledronate 4 mg intravenously weekly for 5 weeks, while the control group (n = 6) were given no drugs. On day 60 the right second maxillary and mandibular third molars were extracted. Thirty days later 3 anim...

Abstract Introduction Growing evidence suggests a correlation of alternative polarization of macrophages (M2) with a bad outcome of oral cancer. Macrophage polarization plays a significant role in the progression of hyperlipidemia and atherosclerosis, being influenced from plasma cholesterol. On the other hand plasma lipids have been studied epidemiologically as risk factors in carcinogenesis. Goal of our pilot study was the investigation of a possible association of plasma lipids with tumor out...

Summary Background Polarization of tumor infiltrating macrophages is associated with the prognosis of solid malignancies and correlates with the occurrence of lymph node metastases in oral squamous cell carcinomas (oscc). Early stage (T1/T2, N0) oscc are characterized by a good prognosis and can be cured by surgery. The postoperative regime usually contains no adjuvant radio-/chemotherapy. The current pilot study was conducted to elucidate whether macrophage polarization in tumor resection speci...

Abstract Introduction Among numerous techniques that have been described for lip repair, the Tennison–Randall method has gained popularity over time and is preferred by many surgeons due to the predictability of the outcome. This study aims to evaluate the esthetic outcome reached in the nasolabial region following primary lip repair with the use of this method. Materials and methods Forty-four patients with unilateral cleft lip (with or without alveolar cleft) were assessed retrospectively thro...

Summary Background The scapular/parascapular free flap was described by Saijo in 1978 and has since then been widely used in reconstructive procedures. Materials and methods This is a retrospective study, describing our experience with the use of free scapula/parascapular flap in 130 reconstructions over a period of 5 years in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of the University Hospital of Erlangen. Demographical data, data regarding the underlying pathology, flap raising details,...
