was then elevated, and the maxillary bone was exposed from the pyriform aperture anteriorly to the pterygomaxillary fissure posteriorly.
Following decongestion, the mucoperiosteum
over the area anterior to the axilla of middle turbinate was either elevated as a flap or the mucosa overlying the bone was cauterised.
This occlusal scheme stabilizes the dentures and centralizes forces on the residual ridge to protect alveolar bone resorption.6 However, this statement has been questioned since the balance is often lost during chewing.7 Studies have also demonstrated that balanced occlusion existing at denture delivery is often lost due to frequent post insertion adjustments, cold flow of acrylic and compression of mucoperiosteum
under masticatory loads without patients complaining about it.7 In natural dentition, canine guidance disengages posterior teeth during excursive movements and reduces elevator muscle activity of the mandible.6
After performing antisepsis, local anesthesia, and incision the mucoperiosteum
flap displacement was done and osteotomy was carried out to allow access to the affected area.
Flaps of mucoperiosteum
were raised from hard palate on both sides of cleft.
The island (tadpole) flap of the palatal mucoperiosteum
based on an intact and fully mobilised vascular pedicle is an effective and versatile technique for a single stage, two layered repair of palatal fistulae.
Enucleation is complete excision of lesion and marsupialization, or Partsch's technique, consist of removing a window from the lesion and suturing the surrounding mucoperiosteum
to the margins of the cyst wall.
Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) is an inflammation of the mucoperiosteum
of middle ear cleft which is associated with recurrent ear discharge through tympanic membrane perforation and deafness (1).
Delayed eruption of permanent maxillary incisors has numerous causes such as supernumerary teeth, tooth malformation or dilacerations, tooth agenesis, cysts or other pathological obstructions in the eruptive path, retained primary incisor that has become ankylosed, presence of a dense mucoperiosteum
or submucosa that acts as a physical barrier to eruption, lack of space or in association with certain syndromes.
The reported advantages of this technique include: operator and patient ease as there is no need to attach hooks or elastics, reduction in adjustments, continuous forces over a long period of time, friction-free system, healthy periodontium (as the eruptive process is through normal, closed mucoperiosteum
) and reduced risk of infection (11,42,43).
Even minor trauma may injure the nasal septum, which can lead to the development of a nasal septal hematoma or nasal septal abscess, defined as a collection of pus between the cartilaginous or bony nasal septum and its normally coapted mucoperichondrium or mucoperiosteum
. (1) Although the occurrence of nasal septal abscess is uncommon, serious complications may result, necessitating prompt diagnosis and management.
Gingivitis refers to inflammatory, erosive and ulcerative conditions which are confined to the mucoperiosteum
covering the alveolar processes.
