Remaking the face: Pushing the boundaries of allotransplantation to the craniofacial region (related to TripleO-D-20-1530R2) For July 2021 Oral Med Editorial submission
Innovation in modern medicine never ceases to amaze me. During my days as an oral medicine fellow at the National Institutes of Dental Research in the late 1980s, where salivary gland dysfunction was studied from various approaches, I was introduced to the concept of salivary gland transplantation. More accurately, this was the transfer of a major gland out of the field of head and neck radiation therapy in an attempt to preserve gland function. This gland transfer would hopefully facilitate oral health maintenance and future ability to partake in gastronomic pleasures for the cancer survivor. (Source: Oral Surgery, Oral M...

Oral lesions containing amyloid-like material
During oral pathology daily practice, true amyloid may be identified in oral amyloidosis and several odontogenic tumors. However, histological examination often reveals other oral and perioral diseases with similar eosinophilic, acellular, amorphous substances. These include extensive areas of collagenous sclerosis, fibrin deposition, elastic fiber degeneration and dentinoid material, which may resemble amyloid under light microscopic examination. These materials are often termed amyloid-like due to their close histological resemblance to true amyloid. (Source: Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology, Oral Radiology, and Endodontics)

Oral Findings and Treatment of Patients with Face Transplants in Helsinki
Face transplantation (FT) is performed for patients with severe facial disfigurements, due to trauma caused by burns, ballistic injuries or animal attacks, or due to severe congenital or attained malformations. The goal of the FT is to restore missing or injured facial structures, improve the quality of life (QOL), and enhance functional abilities, such as chewing, swallowing, breathing, talking, and esthetics.1 The first FT was performed in 2005.2-4 Currently, the estimated global number of FTs is 44, performed in 17 different centers.

Complications after mandibular setback with intraoral vertical ramus osteotomies: a retrospective cohort analysis of 133 patients
Several surgical techniques can be performed to achieve setback of the mandible. The bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) is most frequently used, but vertical ramus osteotomies performed through extra- or intraoral access can achieve the same sagittal and occlusal relations1,2. The disadvantage of the BSSO is a relative high ratio of neurosensory disturbance (NSD), ranging from 10-20% in most studies3. Also, surgical site infection (SSI) can be encountered, and may require additional surgery for removal of osteosynthesis-material4.

A systematic review of metastatic cancer presenting in osteonecrosis of the jaws (MC-ONJ) in patients undergoing antiresorptive and/or antiangiogenic therapy for skeletal-related adverse events
Osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) is reported to be primarily associated with patients receiving bisphosphonate (BP) therapies, but has been found in patients taken a number of other medications. A number of recent reports have noted the presence of metastatic cancers in the histological analysis of osteonecrotic lesions from the jaw. The aim of the present review is to estimate the frequency and the type of metastatic cancer most commonly found in ONJ specimens in patients undergoing antiresorptive and/or antiangiogenic drug therapy.

Furthermore, repeated intubation attempts are associated with increased patient morbidity and mortality.
