Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the years, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS), as a specialty, has seen tremendous change in the art and science of it clinical practice. Although a specialty originating from dentistry, OMFS encompasses and collaborates knowledge from disciplines of medicine and dentistry. There have been significant changes in every aspect of OMFS from diagnosis to treatment. Emphasis in the last decade has been on utilization of virtual surgical planning, minimally invasive surgical techniques, newer diagnostic tools, sophisticated tools, advances in regeneration and reconstruction of hard and soft tissues. Utilization of evidence-based practices have helped with ultimate goal of improvement in patient care outcomes while minimizing morbidity and mortality. This Special Issues on "Advances in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" focuses on review of updates in practice of OMFS including sophisticated equipment, diagnostic tools, novel surgical planning techniques, state-of-art surgical techniques, and evidence based approach.

Negative pressure wound therapy has greatly advanced the field of wound healing for nearly two decades, by providing a robust surgical adjunct technique for accelerating wound closure in acute and chronic wounds. However, the application of negative pressure wound therapy in maxillofacial applications has been relatively under utilized as a result of the physical articulations and contours of the head and neck that make it challenging to obtain an airtight seal for different negative pressure wound therapy systems. Adapting negative pressure wound therapies for maxillofacial applications could yield significant enhancement of wound closure in maxillofacial applications. The current review summarizes the basic science underlying negative pressure wound therapy, as well as specific maxillofacial procedures that could benefit from negative pressure wound therapy.
