Application of obturator to treat velopharyngeal incompetence. (1/24)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of a system of velopharyngeal incompetence (VPI) management after the application of obturator. METHODS: Using nasopharyngofiberoscope (NPF) and a computer analysis system, we quantitatively analyzed the improved state of velopharyngeal incompetence in 100 patients with unilateral and/or bilateral cleft palate. RESULTS: The velopharyngeal closure (VPC) can be greatly improved by using a temporary oral prosthesis (obturator) and speech training. An objective quantitative standard was established to evaluate the change of velopharyngeal closure of cleft palate patients after surgery and conservative treatment. CONCLUSIONS: The method used is more succinct, accurate and practical than previous methods. In order to reflect the state of velopharyngeal incompetence, the concept of improvement rate of velopharyngeal incompetence (IRVPI) is put forward.  (+info)

Application of a temporary palatal prosthesis in a puppy suffering from cleft palate. (2/24)

A 3-month-old Schnauzer was presented with congenital defects of the secondary palate. On the clinical examination, coughing, sneezing, drainage of nasal discharge from the external nares and poor growth were found. Vital signs and results of blood examination were within normal ranges. Thoracic radiography revealed mild pneumonia in the right lung lobes. In a puppy suffering from cleft palates, a palatal prosthesis was applied to the hard palate in order to protect the surgical wound, because a routine surgery was not successful. A palatal prosthesis was applied and held in place using the instant glue and plastic bands to protect the surgical wound following the third repeated surgery. Although a small oronasal fistula still remained, there was no functional defect. This prosthesis was easy to apply and helpful to protect the surgical wound. In addition, this implant could be placed or adjusted without or sedation/anesthesia.  (+info)

Obturator prostheses following palatal resection: clinical cases. (7/24)

Malignant tumours of the upper gum and hard palate account for 1-5% of malignant neoplasms of the oral cavity; two thirds of the lesions which involve these areas are squamous cell carcinomas. Most of these carcinomas are diagnosed late, when they invade the underlying bone. The procedures of choice for removal are: alveolectomy, palatectomy, maxillectomy, which may be total or partial. Surgical reconstruction of the defect may be carried out using a wide range of microvascularized flaps: osteomuscolocutaneous of the internal iliac crest, an osteocutaneous flap of the fibula or scapula, fascia, or osteocutaneous radial flap, or a pedicled flap of temporal muscle. These flaps are supported by single or multiple obturator prostheses. Rehabilitation via palatal obturators is preferred in patients with a poor prognosis or in weak condition. Rehabilitation aims to: restore the separation between the oral and nasal cavities, enable the patient to swallow, maintain or provide mastication, sufficient occlusion and mandibular support, support the soft facial tissues, re-establish speech and restore an aesthetically pleasing smile. Hence, it is crucial to work in close cooperation with the staff who makes the prosthesis and who evaluates the case when the surgery is planned and obtains the necessary gnatological, anatomical and functional information. Thereafter, during the surgical stage, for the immediate obturators, or in the successive days, for the temporary obturators, work is devoted to making the prostheses. In this regard, the Odonto-prostheses Service of the Stomatological Clinic does not follow a rigid protocol but materials and techniques are selected on a personal basis, according to the features of each individual clinical case. Mobile rehabilitative systems are the systems of choice, both of which related to the traditional concepts of retention and stability and systems of self-stabilizing prostheses according to J. Dichamp, albeit modified in materials, limiting, when possible the use of prostheses which are fixed on natural teeth, on appliances or combined.  (+info)

The obturator fascia, or fascia of the obturator internus, covers the pelvic surface of that muscle and is attached around the margin of its origin.. Above, it is loosely connected to the back part of the arcuate line, and here it is continuous with the iliac fascia.. In front of this, as it follows the line of origin of the internal obturator, it gradually separates from the iliac fascia and the continuity between the two is retained only through the periosteum.. It arches beneath the obturator vessels and nerve, completing the obturator canal, and at the front of the pelvis is attached to the back of the superior ramus of the pubis.. Below, the obturator fascia is attached to the falciform process of the sacrotuberous ligament and to the pubic arch, where it becomes continuous with the superior fascia of the urogenital diaphragm.. Behind, it is prolonged into the gluteal region.. The internal pudendal vessels and pudendal nerve cross the pelvic surface of the internal obturator and are ...

The present invention provides an obturator tip having a rigid, elongated, distal section having a blunt, rounded, distal end designed to separate tissue. The distal section is connected to a proximal section by a central section having tapered outer surfaces. The obturator tip of the present invention is equipped with arc shaped blades positioned on opposite sides of the tip and 180 degrees apart from each other. In one embodiment, the arc shaped blades are positioned rearwardly with respect to the distal section of the obturator. This feature of the present invention allows the elongated distal section to create a small, non-cutting tissue separating track prior to blade contact with the patient.
An obturator for a cannula includes an elongate member and a flexible disc. The cannula has proximal and distal ends and a lumen extending therebetween. The distal end of the cannula has a circular cross-section. The cannula also includes a first portion having a non-circular cross-section and at least one fluid aperture formed adjacent the distal end. The flexible disc of the obturator is coupled to a distal end of the elongate member, both of which are adapted to be telescopically received in the lumen of the cannula. The flexible disc is configured to restrict the flow of fluid, entering the at least one fluid aperture, through the lumen.

A 52-year-old female patient with a history of rectal carcinoma underwent targeted radiotherapy on right-sided pelvic lymph node metastases (42 Gy in 21 fractions). She later developed local post-radiation retroperitoneal fibrosis with resulting ureteric stenosis. Serial oncological follow ups with 18F-FDG PET-CT showed a right-sided increased uptake in the obturator internus (Figures 1 and 2, X) and obturator externus muscles, at a significant distance inferiorly to the irradiated zone. This uptake first became visible 22 months after the last radiotherapy session, reached a peak after 25 months (Figure 1), and all but disappeared after 32 months without any further oncologic treatment. It was associated with gradual and permanent muscular volume loss compared to the contralateral side. This volume loss reached a maximum after 37 months (Figure 2). The previous pelvic irradiation suggests that post-irradiation scarring led to injury of the nerves innervating the obturator muscles (i.e., the ...

The obturator foramen (Latin foramen obturatum) is the large opening created by the ischium and pubis bones of the pelvis through which nerves and blood vessels pass. It is bounded by a thin, uneven margin, to which a strong membrane is attached, and presents, superiorly, a deep groove, the obturator groove, which runs from the pelvis obliquely medialward and downward. This groove is converted into the obturator canal by a ligamentous band, a specialized part of the obturator membrane, attached to two tubercles: one, the posterior obturator tubercle, on the medial border of the ischium, just in front of the acetabular notch the other, the anterior obturator tubercle, on the obturator crest of the superior ramus of the pubis Reflecting the overall sex differences between male and female pelvises, the obturator foramina are oval in the male and wider and more triangular in the female. Additionally, unilateral pelvis hypoplasia can cause differences in size between the obturator foramina, and there ...

Treatment of Pierre Robin Sequence. Pierre Robin Sequence can be variable in its severity. We judge the severity based on the affect it has on the airway. Some children will just need a little supplemental oxygen and to be placed on their side to sleep while others will require intubation with a breathing tube and ventilator immediately after birth. This is purely dependent on how much obstruction the tongue causes on the upper airway. More mild cases tend to resolve on their own within a few weeks to months. More moderate and severe cases (based on overnight sleep studies) may require surgical intervention. Historically, a tracheostomy was the only option to relieve the airway obstruction. This is still an option today, but is considered a last resort if the child fails or is not a candidate for other options. A procedure called a tongue lip adhesion was developed to avoid a tracheostomy and entailed sewing the tip of the tongue to the inside of the lower lip to pull the tongue forward and ...

Pierre robin sequence (PRS) is a rare condition characterized by cleft palate, retrognathia and glossoptosis, PRS is a sequence, i.e. a chain of certain developmental malformations, one entailing the next. The reported birth prevalence of PRS ranges from 1 in 2000 to 1 in 30, 000, Bush and Williams suggested 1 in 8500. A genetic cause to PRS was recently identified and may be caused by genetic anomalies at chromosomes 2, 11, or 17; in addition to that etiology is classified as isolated form, syndromic form and unique PRS. This rare syndrome presents the symptoms alliance to classical traid, U or V shaped cleft palate, microganathia/retroganathia, glossoptosis and associated anomalies of syndromes mainly with regard to respiratory and feeding problems.there are various advancement in the area of perinatal diagnosis of PRS, which help us to early identification and effective management.
