TREATMENT OF MAXilLARY SINUSITIS

TREATMENT OF MAXILLARY SINUSITIS Early treatment of maxillary sinusitis consists of humidification of inspired air to loosen and aid in the removal of dried secretions from the nasal passage and the sinus ostium. Also required are antibiotics, systemic decongestants, And topically applied congestants to decrease mucosal edema and inflammation and to promote drainage of the sinus through \ts natural opening. On

SURGERICAL MANAGEMENT OF BENEFITLESIONS IN ORL SOFT TISSUSE

SURGERICAL MANAGEMENT OF BENEFITLESIONS IN ORL SOFT TISSUSE  Superficial soft tissue lesions of the oral mucosa arc Usually benign and in niost instances lend themselves tu simple surgical removal using biopsy techniques (see Chapter 21), They include fibromas, pyogenic granulomas. papillomas, peripheral giant cell granulomas, verruca vulgaris; rnucocclcs (i.e .. mucous extravasation phenomena), and epulis Ii

MALIGNANT TUMORS OF THE ORAL CAVITY

MALIGNANT TUMORS OF THE ORAL CAVITY Management of the oral cavity may arise from a variety ot tissues, such as salivary gland, muscle, and blood vessels, or may even present as metastases from distant sites, I( sl common, however, are epidermoid carcinomas ot he oral mucosa. Treatment Modalities for Malignancies Malignancies of the oral cavity are treated with surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, or a combination

PRINCIPLES OF SURGICAL MANAGEMENT OF JAW TUMORS

PRINCIPLES OF SURGICAL MANAGEMENT OF JAW TUMORS A discussion of the surgical management of jaw tumors is made easier by the fact that many tumors behave similarly and therefore can be treated in a similar manner. The three main modalities of surgical excision of jaw tumors are (1) enucleation (with or without curettage), (2) marginal (i.e., segmental) or partial resection, and (3) composite resection (Box 22-

SURGICAL MANAGEMENT OF CYSTS AND CYSTLIKE LESIONS OF THE JAWS

SURGICAL MANAGEMENT OF CYSTS AND CYSTLIKE  LESIONS OF THE JAWS Surgical management of oral pathologic lesions can best be discussed by broadly dassifying pathologic lesionsinto the following major categories cysts and cysrlike  lesions of the jaws, benign tumors of the jaws, malignant tumors, and benign lesions of oral soft tissues. If the cyst has not expanded or thinned the cortical plate, normal contour and

BASIC SURGICAL GOALS

Eradication of Pathologic Condition The therapeutic goal of any extirpative surgical procedure is to remove the entire lesion and leave no cells that. could proliferate and cause a recurrence of the lesion. The methods used to achieve this goal vary tremendously and depend on the nature of the pathologic condition of the lesion. Excision of an oral carcinoma necessitates an aggressive approach that must sacrif
