Laser-Assisted Microvascular Anastomosis of Free Flaps in Reconstruction of Orofacial Defects: A Comparative Study Among Conventional Methods and Diode Laser Anastomosis
AbstractBackgroundThe key role played by anastomosis determines the outcome of any free flap surgery. Besides many methods, the application of LASERS for performing microvascular anastomosis gaining popularity in recent times. The ease of application, utilizing lesser time for performing anastomosis than the conventional methods and minimal injury to the vessel layers, are contributing factors to the success of free flap surgery. Laser-assisted vascular anastomosis (LAVA) fulfills the criteria of lesser vessel wall damage and faster anastomosis and thus resulting in reduced flap ischemic time and overall outcome of the sur...

A Rare Lesion at Rare Location: A Surgeon ’s Enigma
AbstractLeiomyosarcoma of palate is a rare malignant spindle cell tumour in oral cavity. It is often misdiagnosed with other benign lesions like nodular fasciitis, clinical and histological similarity of rapid growth, rich cellularity, as the pathogenesis is unknown, which can make diagnosis and management challenging. The non-specific clinical, radiologic and pathological presentation of spindle cell tumours causes diagnostic difficulty due to similarities to granulation tissue, benign or malignant lesions in histologic and imaging features. Nevertheless, differentiation is important because the prognosis and treatment va...

Quandary in Diagnosing Peripheral Ossifying Fibroma and Pyogenic Granuloma : A Case Report with Mini Review
AbstractThe soft tissues of the oral cavity are constantly subjected to microtrauma due to various factors. The gingiva in particular reacts to these beyond a point resulting in reactive hyperplastic lesions. Amongst these, the pyogenic granuloma and the peripheral ossifying fibroma are the most common clinical entities. Since they have a similar clinical presentation but diverse histomorphologic illustrations, it was advocated that there exists an interrelation between these two reactive fibrous overgrowths. Hence, this paper is intended to abolish the quandary in diagnosing peripheral ossifying fibroma and pyogenic granu...
