Severe Anxiety Among Female Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery Residents: Can Gender Discrimination Be a Cause?
The article in a recent issue of the journal by Al Atassi et  al1 on the relation of perception of personal achievement and anxiety among oral-maxillofacial surgery (OMS) residents was very interesting. The investigators sent a 20-question survey to all the OMS residents enrolled in programs affiliated with the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons in 2017. Although the response rate was low (20%), the results of the survey were important, showing that 58% of OMS residents had moderate to severe levels of anxiety; in addition, residents with severe anxiety were 91% more likely to report low levels of...

We were delighted to read Dr Ghai's response to our study. Our intention in publishing our studies ( “What a Shame: Increased Rates of OMS Resident Burnout May Be Related to the Frequency of Shamed Events During Training”1 and “Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Resident Perception of Personal Achievement and Anxiety: A Cross-Sectional Analysis”2) was to generate an ongoing conversation within the field about topics of wellness and burnout. Gender discrimination is of central importance to that discussion, and we are grateful that Dr Ghai brought this topic to the forefront. (Source: Journal of Oral and...

An Unusual Case of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) after Orthognathic Surgery: A Case Report and Review of Literatures
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is primarily caused by obstruction of blood flow in the deep veins in the lower limbs. It is a form of thrombophlebitis and can be a major cause of morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients. This paper aims to report an unusual case of DVT in a 21-year-old female class III patient who underwent bimaxillary orthognathic surgery (BSSO and LeFort I osteotomy) under general anesthesia. She developed DVT unexpectedly one week after the surgery, with episodes of sweating and chills, as well as lower limb edema, tenderness and rigidity.

Embedded tooth: unique mimicker of keratoacanthoma
A 58-year-old woman presented to the Department of Dermatology with a 30-day history of a moderately painful enlarging nodule on her upper cutaneous lip. Two weeks prior to presentation, she fell on the sidewalk leading to injuries of the oral mucosa, right temple, and knees. She also noticed that the upper lateral incisor, a 3-year-old implant, was missing and had it replaced by a dentist. Physical examination revealed a 1.3 cm erythematous crusty nodule on the upper cutaneous lip and vermillion border resembling a keratoacanthoma-type squamous cell carcinoma (Fig 1a).

Effects of Timing of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy on Mandibular Distraction Osteogenesis: An Experimental Study in a Rat Model

Head and neck tumors are known to most commonly metastasize to the lungs, skeletal system, and liver, generally within two years of definitive treatment and in the context of poor locoregional control of the primary lesion.
