This book aims to fill the gap created by the lack of formal training in cryosurgery, which leads not only to an underutilization of the technique but also to inappropriate uses with unpleasant consequences for patients. The book covers all practical aspects of cryosurgery and also offers a theoretical foundation for practice. Basic principles, equipment, and techniques are described, and procedures are explained step by step for a range of applications, including common benign lesions, vascular lesions, premalignant conditions, and malignancies. An important feature is the coverage of the latest advances in combination treatments such as topical drugs and cryosurgery, ultrasound and cryosurgery, photography and cryosurgery, cryobiopsy, and immuno cryosurgery. Use of cryosurgery as palliative treatment is also discussed, and the closing chapters consider postoperative care, complications, and future directions.

Hemangiomas and vascular malformations are common place congenital birth marks (i.e. port wine stains) either present at birth or developing during the child's first years of life. In the past, the treatment of these congenital vascular lesions lacked a detailed plan of therapy, partly due to the belief that, given time, they would disappear. This book provides a new classification of the disorder which permits physicians to conduct a more sophisticated diagnosis and to select the most scientific approach of treatment for their removal with minimal blood loss.

This presentation of tumors and cysts of the mandible and maxilla discusses 71 separate pathologic entities. The authors, three pathologists with extensive experience in the interpretation of jaw lesions, have utilized 353 radiographs, photomicrographs, and sketches to illustrate the wide range and scope of bone pathology within this unique part of the skeletal system. Normal embryogenesis and development of the jaws and dentition, histology of odontogenesis, and classification of tumors and cysts are covered. A comprehensive and broad array of benign, malignant, and dysplastic lesions includes odontogenic, nonodontogenic, and fibro-osseous lesions of the jaws. Representative plain radiographs, computerized tomographic images, and color photomicrographs form the basis for clinicopathologic correlation. Routine diagnostic procedures and stains are stressed as the basis for establishment of a definitive diagnosis. As a result, this volume will be an essential resource for pathologists, radiologists, and clinicians charged with establishing a diagnosis and treatment plan for patients with tumors and cysts of the jaws.

Bisphosphonates and Osteonecrosis of the Jaw: A Multidisciplinary Approach

During the early 19th century, it was discovered that adding yellow (now called white) phosphorous to matchstick heads made it easier to ignite matches. The phosphorous vapors were breathed in by workers and combined with other chemicals in the body to produce a potent nitrogen-containing bisphosphonate. Today's oral nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates and intravenous nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates circulate around the body the same way as the phosphorous vapors, and are absorbed into bone and ingested by osteoclasts. When this unique binding process of bisphosphonates to bone occurs, osteoclasts are poisoned, and this reduces or eliminates bone turnover. Alveolar bone in the mandible and maxilla turns over more rapidly than in long bones, so the jaws are a better target for bisphosphonate toxicity. It wasn't until 2003 that today's intravenous and oral nitrogen-containing bisphosphonate medications were implicated as major risk factors in the development of exposed necrotic bone of the jaws. Most of the researchers who reported cases of bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the jaw found that these patients were treated with zoledronate, pamidronate, or a combination of these drugs, which are commonly used for treating breast cancer or myeloma. In about 5% of cases, subjects with BIONJ were being treated for osteoporosis. Precipitating events that contribute to BIONJ are tooth extractions (about 50% of cases), mandibular exostoses, periodontal disease, and local trauma from ill-fitting dentures. It is not known if the placement of dental implants is a precipitating factor. The book aims to meet the need of medical practitioners working in all fields that use bisphosphonates, and to present the conservative and surgical treatment methods currently in use. There will also be detailed information on the literature relating to dental implants in patients treated with bisphosphonates.
