The aim of this serial case report is to discuss the surgical management for laterognathia with bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) on a clinical case of asymmetrical dentofacial deformity due to an excessive mandibular unilateral laterognathia. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Case Report:</strong> This case report contains two cases of mandibular laterognathia. Both of our patients underwent a corrective procedure with bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSO) that performed mandibular setback and rotation. Post-operative follow-up showed the patient was in good condition and no complications were noted.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Conclusion:</strong> The mandibular setback and rotation procedure can be performed with a bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSO). Significant improvement of laterognathia in occlusion, masticatory function, and facial appearance was achieved by surgical management with BSSO procedure.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Keywords:</strong> <em>laterognathia, </em><em>bilateral sagittal split osteotomy, mandibular setback</em>.</p> Christo Billy Simanjuntak Abel Tasman Yuza Seto Adiantoro Saptiadi Oktora Copyright (c) 2024 International Journal of Medical and Biomedical Studies http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2024-04-03 2024-04-03 8 2 1 8 10.32553/ijmbs.v8i2.2764 Characteristics Of Pleomorphic Adenoma at Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Bandung Period 2017-2022 https://ijmbs.info/index.php/ijmbs/article/view/2782 <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Introduction: </strong>Pleomorphic adenoma (benign mixed tumors) is the most common neoplasm affecting both major and minor salivary glands, slow growing, asymptomatic, and unilateral. The most affected location of the tumor is major salivary glands namely parotid glands and in minor salivary glands, it manifests in the intraoral, namely the palate region. This study aims to obtain information about the characteristics of patients with pleomorphic adenoma at the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department of Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Bandung.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Methods: </strong>This study is a retrospective descriptive analysis method based on the medical data record of a patient who was diagnosed with pleomorphic adenoma and undergoing treatment at Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department of Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Bandung period 2017 to 2022. The data obtained include age, gender, patient domicile, tumor predilection location, supporting examination, and definitive treatment<em>.</em></p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Results: </strong>The total participants in this study were 27 patients, with women 8 (70%), range at the age of 31-50 years old (30%). The majority of patients were from Bandung City (56%). Most of the lesion were found in major salivary glands was at parotid gland with 3 patient (10%) and in minor salivary was at the palate region with 18 patients (77%). Most common supporting examination used in this study were fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB), panoramic x-ray, and CT scan, with definitive treatment received by the respondent were surgical excision.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Pleomorphic adenomas are often occurred in women during third decade of life. The majority of the lesion occurred in minor salivary gland at the palate region. Surgical excision is most definitive treatment were performed. </p> <p><strong>Keywords: </strong><em>Patient</em><em> characteristics, pleomorphic Adenoma, salivary gland</em></p> Muftihat Israr Farah Asnely Putri Eka Marwansyah Oli'i Abel Tasman YUza Copyright (c) 2024 International Journal of Medical and Biomedical Studies http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2024-05-02 2024-05-02 8 2 14 19 10.32553/ijmbs.v8i2.2782 Characteristic of Odontoma at Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital during 2017 – 2022 https://ijmbs.info/index.php/ijmbs/article/view/2784 <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Introduction: </strong>Odontoma is a benign odontogenic tumor that originates from abnormalities in the development of tooth tissue (hamartoma) and is characterized by abnormal calcification of tooth tissue such as enamel, dentin, cementum, and pulp. Odontomas are divided into 2 types, namely compound odontoma and complex odontoma. The epidemiologic characteristics of odontoma in several studies show differences. This study aimed to obtain information and analyze the characteristics of odontoma at Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department of Hasan Sadikin General Hospital for the period January 2017 – December 2022.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Methods: </strong>This study is a retrospective descriptive study based on the medical data record of a patient who was diagnosed with odontoma and undergoing treatment at Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department of Hasan Sadikin General Hospital for the period January 2017 to December 2022. The variables studied include age, gender, lesion location, diagnosis, and treatment, and. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Results: </strong>The total participants in this study were 18 patients (9 males and 9 females), with the highest age range at the age of 11-20 years (50%), and the type of compound odontoma as many as 8 patients (44.4%), and complex odontoma as many as 10 patients (56%). Most of the lesions were found in anterior maxilla with 6 patients (33%), 11% in the right maxilla, 5% in the left maxilla, 17% in the anterior mandible, 6% in the right mandible, and 28% in the left mandible. Particularly, based on the treatment received by the patients, all patients went under enucleation treatment (100%).</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Odontomas are equally common in males and females during the second decade of life. Complex odontoma is more common than compound odontoma. Odontoma occur mainly in the anterior maxilla, especially the compound type. Conservative surgery, such as enucleation, is a common treatment.</p> <p><strong>Keywords: </strong><em>Odontoma, patients characteristics, treatment</em></p> Tito Sulakso Endang Sjamsudin Winarno Priyanto Dian Maifara Putri Copyright (c) 2024 International Journal of Medical and Biomedical Studies http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2024-04-21 2024-04-21 8 2 10.32553/ijmbs.v8i2.2784
