AbstractBackgroundContrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become the gold standard when assessing the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in children. To our knowledge, no previous pediatric study has compared findings of TMJ MRI with direct visualization of the joint using arthroscopy.ObjectiveTo determine if subjective findings on contrast-enhanced MRI of the temporomandibular joint correlate with arthroscopic findings of acute and chronic inflammation of the TMJ in children.Materials and methodsPatients who had temporally related TMJ arthroscopy and contrast-enhanced TMJ MRI between March 2014 and March 2016 we...

AbstractOsseous choristoma is a rare entity in the oral and maxillofacial region. The most common site is the tongue, followed by the buccal mucosa. Osseous choristoma of the muscle is unusual and few cases have been described in the literature. No reports have described osseous choristoma arising on the medial side of the lateral pterygoid muscle. Herein, we report the first such case. A 61-year-old woman was referred to our facility for treatment of temporomandibular joint disorder. Computed tomography (CT) revealed two osseous lesions on the medial side of the lateral pterygoid muscle. Preoperatively, a three-dimensiona...

CONCLUSIONS:: TMJ changes were common in elderly with hand OA and characterized by bone productive changes. The radiologic features indicated a late stage TMJ OA. Interpretation challenges related to subtle changes were identified and are reflected by the rather low observer agreement. The diagnosis of TMJ OA should be based on evident and clear abnormalities only. PMID: 30633546 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Todic J, Martinovic B, Pavlovic J, Tabakovic S, Staletovic M Abstract AIM: Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) refer to functional disorders of the masticatory system, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and masticatory muscles. The main objective of this study was to determine whether and to what extent temporomandibular disorders (TMD) affect the maximum bite force (MBF). METHODS: The present study included subjects with and without temporomandibular disorder. The presence of TMD was assessed by means of the Helkimo clinical dysfunction index analysis. We measured the maximum bite pressure (MBP) and occlusal...

Statement of the Problem:Various pathologic conditions can affect the thickness of the roof of glenoid fossa (RGF). The relationship between the RGF thickness and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) is not explicitly investigated. Considering the changes in RGF thickness, as a radiographic sign for TMD diagnosis, the phenomenon may necessitate specific treatment and may influence the treatment course and results.Purpose:This research was designed to examine the relationship between TMD and RGF thickness changes compared to non-TMD group.   Materials and Method:CBCT images of 70 TMD patients (140 joints) and 70...

BertagnaAbstractThe dental profession has long been the primary source for clinical management of patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMDs). However, patients with a facial pain problem may seek diagnosis and/or treatment from other healthcare providers. These providers may be physicians or other doctoral-level practitioners, or they could be members of various allied groups such as physical therapists or occupational therapists, acupuncturists, etc. However,...

Abstract Pseudoaneurysms are rare lesions secondary to blunt or penetrating trauma, temporomandibular joint surgery, or orthognathic surgery. They are usually produced by arterial breach leading to extravasation of blood. The compressed perivascular tissue forms the wall of aneurysmal sac. This sac gradually expands and can be damaged. Nonsurgical interventions are the treatment of choice for pseudoaneurysms. In the case reported here, emergent endovascular injection of acrylic glue was successful in the treatment of a pseudoaneurysm from a branch of the internal maxillary artery secondary to surgical extraction of impac...
