CT Findings in Temporal Bone Osteoradionecrosis
ConclusionMastoid effusion and external auditory canal erosions are commonly seen with TB-ORN. Clinically moderate or severe cases of TB-ORN are more likely to demonstrate enhancing soft tissue (P = 0.002), soft tissue gas (P = 0.002), and temporomandibular joint involvement (P = 0.07).
Benign skull base tumors and infratemporal fossa tumors are challenging to diagnose. These regions are difficult to examine clinically, and the lesions are often asymptomatic initially. When the lesions are symptomatic, the presenting symptoms are often nonspecific and may be attributed to disease affecting surrounding structures. Current case reports document lateral skull base tumors presenting with symptoms suggestive of neuralgia, such as periauricular or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain.1-3 Additional reports on pathology in this region describe restriction in maximal incisal opening and malocclusion as the initial ...
Conclusion The patients with self-reported awake bruxism undergoing an orthodontic treatment did not develop TMJ/masticatory muscle pain. The self-reported awake bruxism is associated with higher anxiety and depression levels and a poorer OHRQoL in patients during the orthodontic treatment.
ConclusionsThe results of this study indicate that screening for depression and anxiety should be considered in the diagnosis of patients with orofacial pain attributed to a TMD.Clinical relevancePHQ-9 and GAD-7 could be used to assist clinicians, without specific training in mental health, to screen for potential signs of existing comorbidity of depression or anxiety disorders in patients with orofacial pain attributed to TMD.

This study aims to correlate degenerative TMJ with condylar volume, grayscale and chin deviation.
The aim of the present study was to test the hypothesis that the dose of estrogen replacement therapy may have an influence on the clinical, radiographic and histopathologic changes within the TMJ.

The aim of this study was to present the results of a modification of the arthroscopic anterior myotomy for the treatment of internal derangement (ID) of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ): the minimally invasive arthroscopic anterior myotomy (MIAAM). Fifteen joints with Wilkes stages III –IV ID treated with this technique were studied. Clinical data evaluated were pain (visual analogue scale, VAS) and articular movements (preoperatively and at 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months postoperative). The position of the disc at 1 year after surgery was compared with the pre-surgical position, u sing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

The objective of present study is to evaluate and compare the efficacy of intra-articular platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and arthrocentesis in management of TMDs.Materials and MethodsTwenty-four patients with complaint of reduced mouth opening, joint noise, pain, jaw deviation, not responding to medicinal treatment and coming under group II/III of RDC/TMD were included. Patients were randomly and equally divided in two groups. In group A, arthrocentesis was performed, whereas group B patients underwent intra-articular injections of PRP. Patients were clinically evaluated preoperatively to 12 months postoperatively.Result...
