Comprehensive analysis of patients with failure of mandibular hardware
Mandible fractures (MFs) are the second most common facial fractures in adults.1,2 Treatment of MFs are essential to maintain proper speech, swallowing, and mastication.3 Most MF undergo open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF). When ORIF of MF fails, significant cost to patients and healthcare systems exists4; treatment complications cost on average $11,637 (range, $3,682 to $29,805) 4 per case. Previous studies evaluated factors likely to cause mandibular hardware to fail (i.e. delay in surgical intervention,5 location of fracture,5 medical comorbidities,6 patient compliance, 6 substance abuse, 6 plating technique/s, ...

Intratumor hemodynamics using contrast-enhanced MRI in intra-arterial chemotherapy for head and neck cancers
Intra-arterial chemotherapy (IACT) has long been used to treat head and neck cancer and has recently garnered attention owing to its superior therapeutic results [1,2]. The therapeutic effects of IACT are related to the ability of the administered agent to cover the entire tumor. Computed tomography (CT) has been used to determine if the agent covers the lesion. However, metallic artifacts are common in CT images of the head and neck area, which can make the tumor invisible. To solve this problem, the authors of a previous study developed a method to confirm the area of the contrast agent perfusion by administering a small...

Why Doesn't Medicare Treat All Diagnostic Tests Equally?
When a patient presents with an oral lesion or signs and/or symptoms of disease, a biopsy is frequently required to determine the underlying cause. Tissue biopsies are a critical link in the chain of patient care since a single, definitive diagnosis for a lesion is rarely provided on the basis of its clinical or radiographic features alone. Such diagnostic uncertainly can delay proper treatment or lead to interventions that inadvertently make the condition worse. After the biopsy sample is received by a surgical pathology laboratory, it receives a gross (macroscopic) evaluation followed by processing and routine histologic...

GLI1-altered epithelioid soft tissue tumor: a newly described entity with a predilection for the tongue
A novel subset of epithelioid soft tissue tumors with GLI1 gene fusions or amplifications has recently been characterized. Histologically, these tumors typically exhibit multinodular or plexiform growth of ovoid, round to epithelioid neoplastic cells, with a distinctive nested architecture separated by a rich delicate arborizing vascular network. The immunoprofile is variable and non-specific, indicating no definitive line of differentiation. GLI1-altered epithelioid soft tissue tumor is considered to be a low grade sarcoma, however, with limited number of cases reported the biologic behaviour of this entity is unclear. (S...
