Surgical excision with peripheral ostectomy
: a definitive, yet conservative, approach to the surgical management of ameloblastoma.
A 1-mm transverse ostectomy
was created using an oscillating saw (Stryker Command 2; Stryker Corp, Kalamazoo, MI, USA) at 50% of the entire length of the humerus to create a small nonload-sharing fracture gap model, followed by one of the 3 repair techniques outlined below.
The only trans-operative complication was the difficulty to rotate the caudal acetabular rim due to osteotomy and not ostectomy
of the pubic segment in a single patient.
Brannon and colleagues reviewed a case series of 44 recurrent cementoblastomas and recommended a peripheral ostectomy
, in addition to surgical removal, to reduce the chance of recurrence.
Femoral head ostectomy
to treat a donkey for coxofemoral luxation.
All six patients spontaneously regenerated large segments of the mandible from full-body ostectomy
to hemimandibulectomy defects.
and tooth sectioning were then performed.
After detaching the flap, visualization of the dental elements was not possible and ostectomy
was necessary to expose a portion of the teeth (Figure 5).
Simultaneous bilateral femoral head and neck ostectomy
for the treatment of canine hip dysplasia.
Calcaneal osteotomy or ostectomy
and retrocalcaneal decompression are done in selected patients yielding variable results.
En bloc resection or enucleation with peripheral ostectomy
results in the best outcome.
This obviously limits one's ability to create good chin contour due to the limited bone bulk and safety with ostectomy
of the partial thikness bone.
