Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology: A Rationale for Diagnosis and Treatment,
Second Edition

Robert E. Marx and Diane Stern

It has been more than a decade since the first edition of this comprehensive oral and maxillofacial pathology book was published. This award-winning text covers the vast array of conditions that oral and maxillofacial surgeons need to be prepared to identify and treat. In addition to its clinical presentation, each disease entity includes its pathogenesis, differential diagnosis, diagnostic work-up, histopathology, treatment, and prognosis. This updated two-volume edition includes several new disease entities, the latest information on recognizing and treating previously described conditions, and new clinical images and cases that better portray the clinical presentation and/or treatment of specific diseases. Significant additions include the section on bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the jaws and the incorporation of new reconstructive techniques using recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein, stem cell concentrates, and tissue engineering principles. An essential reference for any oral and maxillofacial surgeon or resident. All revisions ensure that this new edition is up to date and in compliance with the current standards of care.

In commemoration of the 10-year anniversary of the first edition, we are offering this edition at a special price.

The Osteoperiosteal Flap:
A Simplified Approach to Alveolar Bone Reconstruction

Edited by Ole T. Jensen

This volume presents procedures for various osteoperiosteal flaps. This relatively closed wound approach seems to spontaneously activate the epigenetic signal within the gingivoalveolar complex, and the augmentation develops in a manner analogous to primordial growth. Soft tissue generally follows suit, and implant therapy can commence, creating a functional gingiva-alveolus-implant matrix. Once mastered, bone flaps can almost entirely eliminate the need for block grafting or guided bone regeneration.

Decision Support Software (CD-ROM)

Decision Support software provides diagnostic tools that can be used chairside to interpret radiographic findings (DS X-Ray) or identify and manage oral soft tissue lesions (DS OML). These CD-ROM programs can help clinicians narrow diagnosis by pinpointing images with similar characteristics from the software libraries. Clinical features, differential diagnosis, and appropriate clinical management are included for each diagnosis. Questions such as when to refer a patient to a specialist are also amply addressed.

Piezoelectric Bone Surgery: A New Paradigm

Tomaso Vercellotti

Pediatric Head and Neck Pathology:
Clinico-Pathologic and Therapeutic Principles

Robert O. Greer, Robert E. Marx, M. Sherif Said,
and Lori D. Prok

The problems attendant to the accurate diagnosis for and proper management of the child with a tumor or disorder of the head and neck represent a substantial challenge to the clinician and pathologist. This work presents a much-needed discussion of both common and uncommon lesions affecting the head and neck region of children. It is designed using a unique, easy-reference format that should allow quick resolution of statistical issues and diagnostic quandaries related to the age, sex, site, and clinical presentation as well as the histopathology and molecular biology of a particular tumor or disorder. The pathogenesis of every lesion is included along with differential diagnostic considerations, management options, and prognosis. The central focus of most chapters is tissue type or a specific disease entity rather than anatomical location. This book will be of interest not only to pathologists but also to oral and maxillofacial surgeons, general dentists, pediatricians, pediatric general surgeons, otolaryngologists, and oncologists.
