What are craniomaxillofacial bone tumors?

They are formations that have their origin in the space between the CRA-neo, face and jaw and areas of relationship. The bone origin, the same pa-Till says, affect the organic area so generous that the individual has in his body, and there are areas such as the skull, face and ultimately the maxillo-mandibular region seating tumors grown by forming tissue or bone structures related to them as mucosal or dental structures derived properly at times to tumor formation. And that is a little generic situation that are craniomaxillofacial bone tumors.


How to help detection technological advances in medicine?

First say they are the history and clinical examination based medicine. From there there is no doubt that new technologies have a strong interest. In this sense panoramic radiography, ultrasound, finally, less invasive technologies first. After that it may require the need to scan, MRI, use of radioactive isotopes, much more complex inclusive sum tests pictures etc ... then, with all this, we can come to a diagnostic profile and gotten this profile diagnosis we can approach turn to see if it is for example in the case of tumors, benign or malignant simply by morphology, the degree of invasion, which may occur in the images of traditional anatomy tumors.


What is the involvement of bone tumors craniomaxillofacial?

The intervention depends on the diagnosis in general. To intervene malignancies to do surgeries that allow a field of good visibility and that the best possible access. In case of benign tumors can be a little more cautious and do very important exhibitions. That said, in tumors affecting the skull and jaws, are commonly used joint way, the skull and even the face is mobilized, the intracranial neuro structures can be moved and if the jaw usually have to take into consideration the structures cervical. Always we try to be possible as traumatic for the post-operative equally well be.


How is the post-operative care and what should follow after the surgery?

The post-operative depends somewhat on the track and whether they have had to use extraordinary means of ventilation of the patient during surgery. Normally all you operate the palate up is less painful than what we operate palate down and the structures corresponding to the jaw and neck region. For maximum comfort helps us, besides the atraumatic surgery, particularly the collaboration of anesthesiologists and intensivists. This does not mean that all patients require intensive care, often recovery rooms returned to the patient directly to the plant without further stay.
