Abstract Introduction: Disadvantages of open reduction of subcondylar fractures include visible facial scars and potential facial nerve damage. Endoscope-assisted procedures have solved these problems, however the anatomical adaptation of osteosynthesis plates to the fractured area is difficult in the limited surgical field. Three-dimensional pre-shaped plates specialized for subcondylar fractures recently became available. They are originally not for endoscope-assisted procedures but it may be useful for endoscopic approach because they are very small and pre-shaped. Case report: This paper presents a case of 43-year-old male patient with subcondylar fracture. The treatment provided was open reduction and internal fixation of a subcondylar fracture with three-dimensional pre-shaped plates via transoral approach under endoscopic visualization. Conclusion: The paper highlights contemporary management of subcondylar fracture to avoid complications associated with open reduction and restore the post-operative functions.

Abstract Head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs) frequently invade the bones of the facial skeleton. Semaphorin 4D (Sema4D) is an axon guidance molecule produced by oligodendrocytes. Sema4D was also identified in the bone microenvironment and many cancer tissues including HNSCC. To date, however, the role of Sema4D in cancer-associated bone disease is still unknown. This is the first study to demonstrate the role of Sema4D in bone invasion of cancer. In the clinical tissue samples of bone lesion of HNSCC, Sema4D was detected at high levels, and its expression was correlated with insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) expression. In vitro experiments showed that IGF-I regulates Sema4D expression and Sema4D increased proliferation, migration and invasion in HNSCC cells. Sema4D also regulated the expression of receptor activator of nuclear factor κβ ligand (RANKL) in osteoblasts, and this stimulated osteoclastgenesis. Furthermore, knockdown of Sema4D in HNSCC cells inhibited tumor growth and decreased the number of osteoclasts in a mouse xenograft model. Taken together, IGF-I-driven production of Sema4D in HNSCCs promotes osteoclastogenesis and bone invasion.

Abstract Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dislocation can occur during daily activities and negatively affect a patientʼs quality of life. Although both nonsurgical and surgical techniques have been used to treat recurrent TMJ dislocation, the former is not always successful and the latter, although having a high success rate, is invasive and requires hospitalization. Recently, autologous blood injection has been used to treat recurrent TMJ dislocation. However, this technique is not yet widely used in clinical practice. We designed this study to obtain further information as to efficacy, safety and stability of autologous blood injection for recurrent TMJ dislocation.
