Comparative efficacy of analgesic gel phonophoresis and ultrasound in the treatment of temporomandibular joint disorders

Conclusion: The results of this study suggests that though plain ultrasound as well as phonophoresis with aceclofenac gel are effective in the management of temporomandibular disorders. Phonophoresis was found be slightly superior as evident in VAS scores and CRP levels though not statistically significant.

CONCLUSION: Infrared Thermography resulted in low AUC, making it difficult to differentiate TMD via thermographic analysis. The intensity of pain upon palpation in patients with TMD may be accompanied by a decrease in local temperature. PMID: 31794257 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This report aims to present the concept of reestablishing lateral pterygoid muscle function during total temporomandibular joint (TMJ) replacement surgery. The key feature is a lattice structure (scaffold) located in the condylar neck of a titanium, three-dimensionally (3D)−printed mandibular component that houses morselized autologous bone from the resected condyle and osteogenic stem cells from iliac bone marrow aspirate, and to which the fibrous enthesis component (collagen attachments to a bone fragment) is fixed via suture cerclage prior to the development of the bony union. Five TMJs were replaced using enthesi...

Publication date: Available online 26 November 2019Source: Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Medicine, and PathologyAuthor(s): Yukio Watabe, Yusuke Matsuzaki, Shiro ShigematsuAbstractTrismus can have intra- and extra-articular causes. Extra-articular trismus can be caused by head and neck cancers and associated treatments, oral submucous fibrous, odontogenic infection, trauma and so on. However, scar contracture due to major recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) has not been reported previously as a cause of trismus. We performed Z-plasty for surgical treatment of severe trismus caused by acquired scar contracture f...

CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: The assessed lesions were associated with osteoarthritis, and they accumulated in the TMJs as horses aged. In the absence of signs of pain manifested as changes in mastication, behavior, or performance, it would be difficult to determine the point at which accrued pathological changes represented the onset of clinically important osteoarthritis of the TMJs.

In this study, the results of clinical diagnosis of the population of 557 consecutive patients with orofacial pain based on multidisciplinary diagnostics were evaluated. 15.6% of patients have given up on the participation in the study. It has been shown that the patients who dropped out of the study were significantly older (p=0.0411) than those who agreed to participate, but there was no difference in gender ratio (p=0.185) since the proportion of female patients prevailed. In an analysis of 84.4% of patients participating in the study, the elevated anxiety values were established (mean value on STAI 1 was 39.2 and STAI ...

ConclusionsProteus syndrome oral and maxillofacial manifestations may include dental agenesis, impacted teeth, malocclusion, asymmetric dental growth and maturation, frontal line displacement, asymmetric tongue enlargement, mandibular hemihypertrophy and asymmetry, presence of exostoses/hyperostosis, degenerative changes in the temporomandibular joint, alterations of maxillary and mandibular vertical and/or horizontal growth, and enlargement of mandibular canal and foramen. The PROSPERO systematic review registration number is CRD42019140942.

This study, therefore, aims to compare the retromandibular (extraoral) approach and EAORIF for the treatment of condylar fractures.Study DesignA prospective analysis of 32 cases of condylar fractures that reported to the SDM Craniofacial Centre (Dharwad, India) was carried out. Sixteen patients had been treated with the retromandibular (RM) approach, and 16 had undergone EAORIF in the period from 2012–2017. Patients were evaluated for clinical parameters, such as fracture site, displacement, and surgical duration, as well as for functional parameters, such as occlusion, maximum interincisal opening, deviation of mout...
