• Acute closed locked conditions - displaced meniscus Rarely, trismus is a symptom of nasopharyngeal or infratemporal tumors/ fibrosis of temporalis tendon, when patient has limited mouth opening, always premalignant conditions like oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) should also be considered in differential diagnosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • The clinical features of OSMF includes progressive inability to open the mouth ( Trismus ) due to oral fibrosis and scarring, pain and burning sensation upon consumption of spicy food stuffs, increased salivation, change of gustatory sensation, hearing loss due to stenosis of the eustachian tubes, dryness of the mouth, nasal tone to the voice, dysphagia (if esophagus is involved).

  • It has been used in ophthalmology, dermatology, and rheumatology.The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of HA and Benzydamine hydrochloride (BnzHCl) sprays in reducing swelling, pain, and trismus after the surgical extraction of impacted mandibular third molars. (nationalelfservice.net)
  • Trismus due to bilateral mandibular coronoid hyperplasia. (bmj.com)
  • Conclusion Under limitations of this study, using low-power laser with mentioned parameters, clinically reduces pain, swelling and trismus after surgical removal of impacted mandibular wisdom, but not statistically significant. (semanticscholar.org)
  • Corticosteroids are widely used to reduce pain, swelling and trismus following third molar surgery ( Dental Elf 3rd Sept 2012 and 5th March 2013) baut can cause adrenal suppression, delayed wound healing, and increased susceptibility to infection so should HA be found to be effective with fewer adverse effects this would have wider clinical use.

  • We describe a patient with a locked-in syndrome due to a vascular malformation of the basilar artery-megadolichobasilar artery (fusiform aneurysm, vertebrobasilar dolichoectasia) with bilateral masticatory spasms and persistent trismus. (baillement.com)
  • Trismus is often followed by stiffness of the neck and other muscles throughout the body as well as uncontrollable spasms. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Although unilateral restriction may occur, by definition, trismus is a bilateral process that results from increased tone mediated by the efferent portion of the reflex arch of the trigeminal nerve. (statpearls.com)
  • Unilateral trismus caused by vertebrobasilar dolichoectasia with truncal irritation of the motor root of the trigeminal nerve is a rare disease that has been described only once . (baillement.com)
  • In contrast to an irritation of the trigeminal nerve in this patient, we presume that rather an irritation of the trigeminal nuclear area was the cause of trismus in our patient, because MRI could not demonstrate a contact of the magadolichobasilaris to both trigeminal roots. (baillement.com)
