Abstract

This study was carried out to assess the success rate ofapicectomy of anterior and premolar teeth. Out of 336 patients,who had undergone apicectomy in a private practice between1997–2001, only 256 patients (76.2%) completed the twoyears recall visits; which was the minimum time recommendedin this study to judge whether the operation was successfulor not. The age range of the patients was 12–67 years(mean of 34.7 years), 136 were males and 120 were females.The overall success rate of apicectomy in this study was89.1%. Sex of the patient had no bearing on the success rate(p > 0.05). Highly significant influence of the patient’s age onthe success rate was observed (p < 0.01); the success rate increasedproportionally with increased age. Highly significantinfluence of the type of the apicectomised tooth on the successrate was noted (p < 0.001); upper anterior teeth showed thehighest success rate (92.1%), whereas upper premolars showedthe lowest success rate (77.4%). Periapical condition of thetooth prior to the operation, preoperative vs postoperative obturationof the root canal, and orthograde obturation vs retrogradeobturation were not significant factors affecting the successrate of apicectomy (p > 0.05).

Abstract

The present study aimed to assess the effect of differentflap designs on pain, swelling and trismus following surgicalremoval of impacted mandibular third molar. The study wascarried out in Oral and Maxillofacial Department, DentalTeaching Hospital of Dentistry College, Mosul University.Sixty patients were included in the research where theywere divided into 4 groups, each comprised of 15 patients. Inthe first group, the impacted teeth were removed using an envelopeflap. In the second group, a standard flap was used forthe removal of impacted teeth. For the third group, the impactedteeth were removed using modified standard flap.While in the fourth group, S–shaped flap was used. Pain,swelling and trismus were assessed clinically post–operativelyat 1 day, 3 days and 7 days intervals. Pain and swellingwere evaluated subjectively while trismus was evaluated bymeasuring the maximum mouth opening ability (in mm) betweenthe right upper and right lower central incisors using avernier. The results showed no significant effect among the 4flap designs on post–operative complaints.It was concluded that the type of incision appears tohave no effect on the degree of pain, swelling and trismusfollowing surgical removal of impacted lower third molar.

Abstract

ABSTRACTThe data of this study of cleft lip & Palate are related to a sample of 638 patients who were born with this deformity andwere referred to the plastic unit between1994-2003. These patients were evaluated in respect to age at presentation,family history, and type of deformity, sex ratio, laterality and clinical severity. All patients were operated on then followedup for a period of 5 months to 2.5 years. The results of the analysis of the data show that there is steady increase in thenumber of referred cases each year. The bulk of the orofacial defect is the isolated cleft lip, which account for 44.4% ofthe cases with male predominance except in cleft palate. Left sided cleft with or with out palate was found to be as twicecommon as right side cleft lip. The unilateral cleft is three times as bilateral; while in cleft lip and palate it's twice ascommon. The increase in the number of referred cases may reflect the increase in the birth rate and also increase in thenumber of cases due to increase environmental pollution.

المعلومات الواردة في هذا البحث حول الشق الولادي للشفة العليا و سقف الفم مأخوذ من مجموعة 638 مريض ولدوا بهذا التشوه وتمت إحالتهم لشعبة الجراحة التقويمية من مختلف مناطق جنوب العراق خلال الفترة مابين 1994- 2003. تمت دراسة هؤلاء المرضى بالنسبة للعمر في المراجعة الأولى، وجود تشوه مماثل في العائلة، نوع التشوه، نسبة نوع التشوه بين الذكور و الإناث، النسبة لجهة اليمين أو اليسار وأخيرا شدة التشوه. كل المرضى المشمولين بالدراسة تم فحصهم وإجراء العملية اللازمة لهم ومتابعتهم للفترة ما بين خمسة شهور و سنتان ونصف من قبل نفس الجراح. وقد تبين من نتائج هذه الدراسة إن هناك زيادة سنوية في عدد المرضى المراجعين وان غالبية التشوهات هي شق الشفة العليا وحيدة الجانب (44.4%) وان الذكور يكونون الغالبية بين الجنسين إلا في شق سقف الفم حيث الغالبية من الإناث. وتبين أيضا أن شق الشفة العليا للجهة اليسرى مع أو بدون شق سقف الفم هو ضعف مثيلتها في الجهة اليمنى. و شق الشفة العليا للجهة الواحدة يعادل ثلاث مرات شق الشفة للجهتين ولكنها تعادل مرتين في حالة وجود فتحة في سقف الفم. إن الزيادة السنوية في عدد المرضى قد تعكس زيادة في عدد الولادات وقد تعكس أيضا زيادة في التلوث البيئي؟.
