Where the stone is proximal to the lingual nerve, i.e. at the hilum of the gland, stone retrieval via an intraoral approach should be avoided, as there is a high risk of damage to the lingual nerve during exploration in the posterior lingual gutter. Treatment is by simultaneous submandibular gland excision and removal of the stone and ligation of the submandibular duct under direct vision.

T4 tumors of the oral tongue often cross the midline, for which total glossectomy is the only option to achieve adequate tumor clearance. c) Classical radical neck dissection involves resection of the cervical lymphatics, the lymph nodes and those structures closely associated such as the internal jugular vein, the accessory nerve, the submandibular gland and the sternomastoid muscle. These structures are all removed en bloc and in continuity with the primary disease if possible. The main

disability that follows the operation is the drooping of the shoulder due to paralysis of the trapezius muscle as a consequence of excision of the accessory nerve. Modified radical neck dissection in selected cases one or more of the three following structures are preserved, the accessory nerve, the sternocleidomastoid muscle or

the internal jugular vein, but otherwise all major lymph node groups and lymphatics are excised. Selective neck dissection in this type of dissection one or more of the major lymph node groups is preserved along with sternomastoid muscle, accessory nerve and internal jugular vein.

SEQ. 62 A 47 years old intravenous drug abuser who is suspected to have HIV infection presented with right sided parotid abscess requiring incision and drainage. as a surgeon, what precautions will you take to protect yourself during parotid surgery Key 62 wear goggles for eye protection Wear double gloves and long shows carry out the procedure in an orderly manner. Surgical assistants should be kept to a minimum should be instructed not to move while the operation is proceeding. If the assistants position is to be adjusted then the operating surgeon should stop operating while changes are being made. This should avoid the risk of the operating surgeon injuring an assistants hand while it is being moved across the operative field. The operation should proceed in a slow and methodical manner with meticulous attention to hemostasis, taking care to avoid unexpected rapid bleeding which changes the tempo of the procedure and increases the risk of inadvertent injury to the operators. No sharp instruments or scalpels should be passed across the operative field from hand to hand. All instruments are passed from the scrub nurse to the surgeon and back to the scrub nurse in a dish, thereby reducing the risk of injury while passing instruments.

SEQ. 63 A 46 years old man presents with an irregular bright red lesion on the mucosal aspect of right cheek, diagnosed as Erythroplakia a) Define Erythroplakia b) Enumerate the pathological features of this lesion c) Outline the treatment of this lesion

Key 63 a) Erythroplakia is dened as any lesion of the oral mucosa that presents as a bright red plaque which cannot be characterized clinically or pathologically as any other recognizable condition. b) The lesions are irregular in outline and separated from adjacent normal mucosa. The surfaces may be nodular. These lesions occasionally coexist with leukoplakia. c) As the incidence of malignant change in Erythroplakia is 17-fold higher than in leukoplakia. In every case of Erythroplakia there are areas of epithelial dysplasia, carcinoma in situ or invasive carcinoma.

SEQ. 66 A 45 years old female has been diagnosed as a case of Sjogren Syndrome a) What is Sjogren Syndrome b) How will you diagnose this condition c) How will you treat this patient Key 66 a) b) Sjgrens syndrome is an autoimmune condition causing progressive destruction of salivary and lacrimal glands. The characteristic pathological feature of Sjgrens syndrome is the progressive lymphocytic inltration, acinar cell destruction and proliferation of duct epithelium in all salivary and lacrimal gland tissue. The diagnosis is based on the history as no single laboratory investigation is pathognomonic of either primary or secondary Sjgrens syndrome Management of Sjgrens syndrome remains symptomatic. No known treatment modies or improves the xerostomia or keratoconjunctivitis sicca. An ophthalmological assessment is important, and articial tears are essential to preserve corneal function. For dry mouth, various articial salivary substitutes are available, but


patients often consume large volumes of water, carrying a bottle of water with them at all times. In the dentate patient, the use of salivary substitutes with uoride is important to counter the risk of accelerating dental caries. Other oral complications include oral candidosis and accelerated periodontal disease.

SEQ. 71 A 35 years old motorcyclist met a road traffic accident and sustained abrasions and lacerations of the face. A deep lacerations on the right side causes complete transection of ipsilateral facial nerve and parotid duct a) b) c) d) Key 71 Enumerate the basic steps while examine a patient for faciomaxillary trauma Outline the principles of management of facial soft tissue injuries What is the treatment of transected facial nerve What is the treatment of transected parotid duct

a) Commence with lacerations and soft-tissue injuries Systematically examine bones including the occiput and cranial vault Check dental occlusion and palpate the mouth Check cranial nerves Photographs are useful b) Facial soft tissues have an excellent blood supply and heal well. They should be sutured as soon as possible following the injury after careful exploration, debridement and cleaning, particularly where foreign bodies may be embedded. Many lacerations may be closed using local anaesthesia, injecting into the edges of the wound. If the patient is due to have a general anaesthetic and there is a delay, the wounds should be temporarily closed in advance, using local anaesthesia. Tissue sufciently traumatized to have lost its blood supply should be removed with a sharp scalpel, and the edge to which it is to be apposed trimmed to t as appropriate. Great care should be taken to replace tissues accurately, particularly in cosmetically important landmarks such as the vermilion border of the lips, the eyelids and nasal contours. Hemostasis is important. Muscle and underlying tissues should be brought together with absorbable sutures so that the edges of the wound lie passively within 2 mm of their nal position. Then ne monolament sutures (5/0 or 6/0) are used to bring the wound edges together Sutures should be placed so as to avoid compromising the blood supply of the apices of small aps. Vacuum drains are used where there is concern over dead space beneath the wounds. The lacerations should be covered with antibiotic ointment two or three times per day, and broad-spectrum antibiotics should be prescribed. Ideally, alternate sutures should be removed from the third day with the remaining sutures removed on the fth day. Intraoral lacerations require careful debridement, and closure in layers with resorbable suture materials. Lacerations to mobile structures such as the tongue and soft palate can often be under estimated in terms of their depth. Failure to close the deeper layers of intraoral lacerations may predispose to later dehiscence, c) Primary repair is the most appropriate treatment d) Cannulate from the mouth and anastomose over the stent

SEQ. 75 what do you know by term a) healing by first intention b) healing by second intention give two examples of each Key 75

a) Where wound edges are apposed healing proceeds rapidly to closure; this is known as healing by first intention or primary healing; eg surgical wounds closed primarily , thyroidectomy , parotidectomy or traumatic laceration on face sutured primarily heal by first intention b) Where the wound edges are apart, such as when there has been tissue loss, the same biological processes occur, but rapid closure is not possible. Angiogenesis and fibroblast proliferation result in the formation of granulation tissue. These contracts to reduce wound area and allow epithelialization across its surface to achieve wound closure. This is known as healing by second intention. all wound after debridement kept open for healing by second intention or wound after incision and drainage also heal by second intention SEQ. 76 A patients has undergone subtotal thyroidectomy for toxic goitre a) enumerate various post-operative complications b) how will you manage postoperative hemorrhage in such case Key 77 a) hypoparathyroidism , primary and reactionary hemorrhage, injury to recurrent laryngeal nerve , injury to superior laryngeal nerve , thyrotoxicosis crises , keloid scar, seroma formation b) if postoperative hemorrhage occurs within 24 hours it is called reactionary hemorrhage if airway is compromised in the ward open the stiches to relieve the pressure of hematoma and pack the wound.

Fractures may be identied with ease through this route and xed with plates or wires. The dental arch is restored to its original shape as far as possible so that it matches the pre-morbid occlusion with the mandibular arch. To achieve accurate location, dental arch bars or eyelet wires may need to be applied. Where this is anticipated, the necessary wiring is undertaken before the main part of the operation is commenced.

SEQ. 80 A patients with hepatitis C infection has come to you for dental treatment a) What precautions you will take to avoid transmission to other patients and yourself b) How will you sterilize, used instruments c) What is the rout of infection in hepatitis C Key 80 a) there should be careful protocols for the handling of blood and body fluids in order to reduce the risk of auto-infection and cross-infection, for hepatitis B and C viruses such precautions are of particular importance in patients who have pre-existing infection or who are immunosuppressed.

General measures include: education of staff so that they are fully aware that there is a full vaccination Programme for hepatitis B; the availability of advice for staff in the event of injury. practical measures include: identifying high-risk patients reduction of the number of staff in the theatres to cover essential roles only removal of all extraneous equipment from the theatre; Staff should avoid contact with contaminated body fluids, especially blood, and in this respect abrasions should be covered. If the member suffers from eczema, he or she should be excluded from the theatres and if contamination does occur rapid washing should be undertaken. When handling potentially contaminated blood or body fluids, scrub staff should use non permeable gowns and masks with eye protection and should double glove. Circulating personnel should use plastic aprons and wear gloves. Spills should be dealt with by staff wearing gloves and using absorbent disposable clothes; hypochlorite 1 per cent solution may be applied to blood spilt on the floor. Particular care should be taken with the handling of sharps, which should always be kept in receivers. Swabs should be counted but not left exposed, as for routine operations on a spike rack; they should be placed in deep swab pockets on plastic racks. Disposable equipment should be placed in yellow bags at the earliest possible time, then sealed and double bagged with a hazard label attached. Soiled linen should be placed in special alginate bags and sent to the laundry clearly m arked. At the end of the case all surfaces should be cleaned with detergents and the Domestic Officer informed. b) high level of disinfection and cleaning of instrument then sterilization of instrument c) This may follow blood transfusion, plasma infusion and, rarely, the administration of sera, infection resembling infective hepatitis except that the incubation period is about 12 weeks. Transmission by plasma has been reduced by avoiding the pooling of plasma from a large number of donors. Trans-mission by syringes is prevented if all syringes are disposable. It occurs

amongst those who are drug addicts and possibly after tattooing or ear piercing. There is an extremely high rate among certain homosexual communities. In certain centers more than 50 per cent of male homosexual patients have antibody indicating exposure and about 5 per cent have active disease. In Athens, a group of prostitutes was found to have a rate 20 times that of married pregnant women, possibly due to more frequent coitus near the period or to other sexually transmitted diseases, producing bleeding that transmits the infection.
