02. ICOSIM Weekly – 9 patient cases from our practice

Dear ICOSIM Colleagues,

We are in the fortunate position to present you with unique image documentation of fatty degenerative osteolysis/osteonecrosis of the jawbone (FDOJ).

  • With this LINK you have access to the image documentation of 9 intraoperatively obtained FDOJ pathologies in patients with Atypical Facial Pain / Trigeminal Neuralgia and
  • with evidence of inadequate radiographic imaging in OPG and DVT, and
  • with histological findings and some
  • RANTES/CCL5 expression levels in the FDOK areas.

The specimens were all from affected individuals with Atypical Facial Pain/Trigeminal Neuralgia.

The images thus prove the pathogenetic existence of a FDOK with special formation of a “NICO” (Neuralgia Inducing Cavitational Osteonecrosis) in these cases.

In the hope to be able to support you collegially with it,
I remain until the next ICOSIM-Weekly

Your Hans Lechner
