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
