AB  - Tessier No. 7 cleft, known as lateral facial cleft, is a rare and understudied entity with an incidence of 1/80,000–1/300,000 live births. Besides perioral tissue abnormalities manifesting as macrostomia, Tessier 7 cleft also involves anomalies of the underlying bony structures. It can appear as part of a syndrome, such as Treacher-Collins syndrome or Goldenhar/Orbito-Auriculo-Vestibular Spectrum, or as an isolated form (unilateral or bilateral) with variable expressions. Bilateral maxillary duplication in Tessier 7 cleft is considered extremely rare, accounting for only two previously presented cases. Given that the cases presented in the literature mainly focus on clinical appearance and surgical treatment, without providing sufficient imaging, we aim to present key radiological features of Tessier 7 cleft in terms of evaluating the involved structures, which is essential for the therapeutic approach and final outcome. A 17-year-old male with incompetent lips and orthodontic abnormalities was referred to our Radiology Department for orthopantomography (OPG) and CT examinations. Hetero-anamnestic data revealed a history of surgical treatment of the commissural cleft conducted 2 months after the birth to enable feeding. Intraoral examination showed a maxillary cleft and supernumerary teeth. Since the given clinical presentation was inconclusive, radiological diagnostics took precedence in elucidating this complex entity.

AB  - Chondrosarcoma (CS) initially suspected to be a periodontal lesion is atypical and rare. To the best of our knowledge, only six similar cases have been reported so far. A 47-year-old woman presented with a discreet swelling of the alveolar process of the mandible, while adjacent mucosa appeared normal. Upon initial intraoral radiography, a periodontal lesion was suspected by the ordinating dentist. Further radiological evaluations included CBCT, CT, and MRI, which showed a thickening of the supporting bone with ground-glass foci but without visible calcifications. The periodontal space of the affected teeth appeared to be uniformly widened. The destruction of the vestibular and lingual cortex was observed, as well as a discreet periosteal reaction, implying the secondary involvement of these teeth and not the odontogenic nature of the lesion. The lesion was restricted to the alveolar process of the mandible, and the bone marrow was not affected. Upon biopsy, a preliminary histopathology report suggested chondrosarcoma, and the patient underwent surgery. It is important to emphasize the possible malignant nature of atypical lesions in the alveolar bone, especially in cases with the expansion of vestibular and lingual cortical plates. Additionally, postoperative “watch and see” follow-ups may be considered in cases of CS in the jaws.

AB  - Background
The mortality of oral squamous cell cancer (OSCC) in Serbia increased in the last decade. Recent studies on the Serbian population focused mainly on the epidemiological aspect of OSCC. This study aimed to investigate the demographic and imaging features of OSCC in the Serbian population at the time of diagnosis.

Methods
We retrospectively analyzed computed tomography (CT) images of 276 patients with OSCC diagnosed between 2017 and 2022. Age, gender, tumor site, tumor volume (CT-TV, in cm3), depth of invasion (CT-DOI, in mm), and bone invasion (CT-BI, in %) were evaluated. TNM status and tumor stage were also analyzed. All parameters were analyzed with appropriate statistical tests.

Results
The mean age was 62.32 ± 11.39 and 63.25 ± 11.71 for males and females, respectively. Male to female ratio was 1.63:1. The tongue (36.2%), mouth floor (21.0%), and alveolar ridge (19.9%) were the most frequent sites of OSCC. There was a significant gender-related difference in OSCC distribution between oral cavity subsites (Z=-4.225; p < 0.001). Mean values of CT-TV in males (13.8 ± 21.5) and females (5.4 ± 6.8) were significantly different (t = 4.620; p < 0.001). CT-DOI also differed significantly (t = 4.621; p < 0.001) between males (14.4 ± 7.4) and females (10.7 ± 4.4). CT-BI was detected in 30.1%, the most common in the alveolar ridge OSCC. T2 tumor status (31.4%) and stage IVA (28.3%) were the most dominant at the time of diagnosis. Metastatic lymph nodes were detected in 41.1%.

Conclusion
Our findings revealed significant gender-related differences in OSCC imaging features. The predominance of moderate and advanced tumor stages indicates a long time interval to the OSCC diagnosis.

AB  - Determination of sarcopenia is crucial in identifying patients at high risk of adverse health outcomes. Recent studies reported a significant decline in masticatory muscle (MM) function in patients with sarcopenia. This study aimed to analyze the cross-sectional area (CSA) of MMs on computed tomography (CT) images and to explore their potential to predict sarcopenia. The study included 149 adult subjects retrospectively (59 males, 90 females, mean age 57.4 ± 14.8 years) who underwent head and neck CT examination for diagnostic purposes. Sarcopenia was diagnosed on CT by measuring CSA of neck muscles at the C3 vertebral level and estimating skeletal muscle index. CSA of MMs (temporal, masseter, medial pterygoid, and lateral pterygoid) were measured bilaterally on reference CT slices. Sarcopenia was diagnosed in 67 (45%) patients. Univariate logistic regression analysis demonstrated a significant association between CSA of all MMs and sarcopenia. In the multivariate logistic regression model, only masseter CSA, lateral pterygoid CSA, age, and gender were marked as predictors of sarcopenia. These parameters were combined in a regression equation, which showed excellent sensitivity and specificity in predicting sarcopenia. The masseter and lateral pterygoid CSA can be used to predict sarcopenia in healthy aging subjects with a high accuracy.

AB  - Introduction: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is inflammation of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinus mucosa. The aim of this study was to examine which of the available radiological and clinical parameters is the best indicator of the CRS severity. Methodology: In order to classify CRS, we used both a subjective assessment tool such as SNOT-22 questionnaire, as well as an objective tool such as clinical examination. We introduced three forms of CRS (mild, moderate and severe). Within these groups, we evaluated the computerized tomography (CT) parameters used as an indicator of bone remodeling, the Lund-Mackay score (LMS), CT properties of the soft tissue content in the maxillary sinuses, presence of nasal polypus (NP), presence of fungal infection and parameters indicating allergic status. Results: Frequencies of NP, positive eosinophil count, presence of fungi, areas of high attenuation, and duration of CRS and LMS significantly increased with the increased severity of CRS. Anterior wall thickness and density increased in the severe forms of CRS in the group assessed by SNOT-22. Positive correlation was detected between LMS and maximal density of sinus content and between duration of CRS and anterior wall thickness. Conclusions: Morphological changes of sinus wall detected in CT could be a useful indicator of CRS severity. Changes in bone morphology are more likely to occur in patients with longer-lasting CRS. The presence of fungi, allergic inflammation of any origin and nasal polypus potentiates more severe forms of CRS both clinically and subjectively.

AB  - Background/Aim: Mylohyoid boutonnière is a common anatomical 
variant with extremely rare clinical manifestations. We report two cases 
of symptomatic unilateral mylohyoid boutonnière with sublingual gland 
herniation. Case report: The first was a 34-year-old female with a two 
months history of a left submandibular swelling, intermittent pulsations, and 
otalgia. The second 67-year-old female presented with a left submandibular 
pain six months after total thyroidectomy due to papillary carcinoma. After 
detailed clinical and radiological evaluation by ultrasonography (US) 
and computed tomography (CT), the mylohyoid gap with sublingual gland 
herniation was diagnosed in both patients. The dynamic US with a tongue 
pressed down on the mouth floor revealed blood vessel compression by a 
herniated sublingual gland in the first patient. Conclusions: This is the first 
case of a mylohyoid boutonnière related intermittent vascular compression. 
Dynamic US and CT may help to differentiate intermittent and persistent 
sublingual gland herniation through the mylohyoid boutonnière from other 
pathological lesions in the submandibular region.

abstract = "Background/Aim: Mylohyoid boutonnière is a common anatomical 
variant with extremely rare clinical manifestations. We report two cases 
of symptomatic unilateral mylohyoid boutonnière with sublingual gland 
herniation. Case report: The first was a 34-year-old female with a two 
months history of a left submandibular swelling, intermittent pulsations, and 
otalgia. The second 67-year-old female presented with a left submandibular 
pain six months after total thyroidectomy due to papillary carcinoma. After 
detailed clinical and radiological evaluation by ultrasonography (US) 
and computed tomography (CT), the mylohyoid gap with sublingual gland 
herniation was diagnosed in both patients. The dynamic US with a tongue 
pressed down on the mouth floor revealed blood vessel compression by a 
herniated sublingual gland in the first patient. Conclusions: This is the first 
case of a mylohyoid boutonnière related intermittent vascular compression. 
Dynamic US and CT may help to differentiate intermittent and persistent 
sublingual gland herniation through the mylohyoid boutonnière from other 
pathological lesions in the submandibular region.",

AB  - Objectives This study aims to reveal whether and which position of lower third molar (M3), assessed on a 2D image, indicates or potentially exclude the need for the CBCT exploration of the retromolar canal (RMC). We hypothesized that some positions of M3 are associated with overall higher incidence of the RMC, and particularly clinically relevant ones, thus justifying additional CBCT diagnostics. Methods CBCT exam of 186 hemi-mandibles with present M3 were selected for the study. Explorations were made during the 2-year period from January 1th 2018 to December 31th 2019 with Scanora 3Dx Sorodex (Tussula, Finland). The following variables were assessed: the presence and width of the RMC, eruption status, and angulation of the M3. The RMC presence in relation to the M3 eruption status and angulation was analyzed using appropriate statistical tests. Results RMC was present in 89 (47.8%) out of 186 hemi-mandibles. Mean canal width was 1.51 mm. 22.5% of detected canals had the diameter exceeding 2 mm. Third molar's eruption status showed no statistical correlation with the occurrence of RMC. We observed significantly higher occurrence of RMC in the hemi-mandibles containing distally angulated M3 in comparison to other orientations (p = 0.025). Conclusion Based upon our findings, we recommend preoperative CBCT in cases where distal angulation of M3 is observed on 2D images, for the purpose of RMC exploration. Lower resolution CBCT mode and limited field of view (XS or S) are sufficient for the visualization of potentially clinically relevant RMCs, with as much reducing the patient dose.

AB  - Introduction
The impact of the nasal septum morphology on the severity of obstruction symptoms has not been fully explored.

Objective
This study aimed to investigate whether the morphology of the deviated nasal septum assessed by computed tomography may explain nasal obstruction severity.

Methods
The study included 386 patients who were referred to the computed tomography examination of the paranasal sinuses. Patient selection criteria were the absence of facial anomalies, facial trauma, nasal surgery, and sinonasal tumors. Computed tomography images were used to estimate deviated nasal septum prevalence, the prevalence of Mladina's seven types of deviated nasal septum, and to measure the deviated nasal septum angle. Nasal obstruction severity was assessed by the nasal obstruction symptom evaluation, NOSE scale. The relationship between NOSE score, deviated nasal septum morphology, and deviated nasal septum angle was performed by a statistical regression model on the reduced sample of 225 patients.

Results
The prevalence of deviated nasal septum was 92.7%. Type 7 deviated nasal septum was the most frequent (34.2%) followed by type 5 (26.2%) and type 3 (23.6%). The worst NOSE scores were recorded in the type 2 deviated nasal septum (45.00 ± 28.28). The mean deviated nasal septum angle in patients with nasal obstruction was 8.5° ± 3.24. NOSE scores were not significantly associated with deviated nasal septum types and angles.

Conclusion
Patients with different types of deviated nasal septum have different NOSE scores. Computed tomography morphology of the deviated nasal septum could not fully explain the severity of nasal obstruction.

AB  - Third-party payers request objective confirmation of the nasal septum deviation (NSD) severity by computed tomography (CT) before authorizing financial support for septoplasty. Previous studies have provided contradictory results related to the link between obstruction severity and CT-measured angle of the NSD. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the diverse CT morphology of NSDs (including previously neglected types and shapes) could predict obstruction severity. The study included 225 patients with NSD. The CT morphology of the septum was analyzed using 5 different classifications of NSD that are commonly used in the clinical practice and research. The angle of NSD was also measured. Nasal obstruction was assessed by the Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation (NOSE) questionnaire. A relationship between CT morphology and the angle of the NSD and NOSE scores was analyzed using appropriate regression models. Patients with NSDs located in the anterior part of the septum always have some degree of nasal obstruction, while those with posterior NSDs did not necessarily report obstruction symptoms no matter how complicated NSD they have. Regression analysis did not reveal any causal relationship between NOSE scores and CT morphology and the angle of NSD. The presence of spurs and whether they divide nasal passages have no statistically significant predictive effect on the obstruction severity. The CT morphology and the angle of the NSD could not predict severity of the nasal obstruction. Requesting CT examination just to objectively confirm nasal obstruction is not justified.

AB  - Background/Aim. The Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation (NOSE) scale is widely used in clinical practice for assessment of quality of life in patients with nasal obstruction. It has been validated in several countries up to date. The aim of this study was to validate and crossculturally adapt the NOSE scale for Serbian population. Methods. The Serbian version of the NOSE scale (NOSEs) was prepared through forward and backward translation, committee review, and pretesting. Validation process was carried out on 50 patients diagnosed with the nasal septal deviation (the study group) and 50 ear, nose and throat (ENT) patients with other non-rhinological diagnosis (the control group). Results. The NOSE-s instrument demonstrated good reliability (Cronbach α coefficient 0.81). Stability and reliability of the NOSE-s questionnaire were confirmed by test-retest procedure showing no statistically significant difference in obtained responses (Goodman- Kruskal gamma coefficient 0.83). Item and total scores were significantly higher in the study group than in the control group indicating the very good inter-group discrimination (p < 0.001). Inter-item and item-total correlations were similar to the original NOSE instrument. Three months after septoplasty, a mean NOSE-s score in patients was 19.2 ± 12.8. Calculated standardized response mean of 1.7 showed high sensitivity to change. Conclusion. The Serbian version of the NOSE scale is simple, valid and reliable instrument for estimating the nasal obstruction. Therefore, it can be recommended for application in rhinological practice and research in Serbian speaking population.
AB  - Uvod/Cilj. Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation (NOSE) ska-
la se koristi u kliničkoj praksi za procenu kvaliteta života bole-
snika sa nazalnom opstrukcijom. Do sada je validirana u ne-
koliko zemalja. Cilj ove studije je bio da se validira i kultural-
no adaptira NOSE skala za korišćenje u srpskoj populaciji.
Metode. Srpska verzija NOSE scale (NOSE-s) je pripremana
na sledeći način: prevodom na srpski jezik, potom povratnim
prevodom na engleski jezik, komisijskim pregledom prevoda i
pretestiranjem skale. Proces validacije sproveden je u grupi od
50 bolesnika sa postavljenom dijagnozom devijacije nosne
pregrade (studijska grupa) i među 50 bolesnika koji su se lečili
na Klinici za uho, grlo i nos, kod kojih je postavljena dijagno-
za nekog drugog ne-rinološkog problema (kontrolna grupa).
Rezultati. NOSE-s instrument je pokazao dobru pouzdanost
(Cronbach α coefficient 0.81). Stabilnost i pouzdanost NO-
SE-s upitnika su potvrđeni test-retest procedurom pokazujući
da nema statistički značajne razlike u dobijenim odgovorima
(Goodman-Kruskal gamma coefficient 0.83). Skor pojedinačnih pi-
tanja, kao i ukupan zbir su bili viši u studijskoj grupi bolesnika
nego u kontrolnoj grupi, pokazujući da postoji razlika između
grupa (p < 0.001). Međusobna veza između pojedinačnih pita-
nja i pojedinačnog pitanja i ukupnog zbira je bila sličnih vred-
nosti kao i kod originalne skale. Tri meseca nakon septoplastike
prosečan NOSE-s skor je bio 19.2 ± 12.8. Izračunata je i vred-
nost standardized response mean (1.7) koja je pokazala visoku senzi-
tivnost upitnika na promenu. Zaključak. Srpska verzija NOSE
skale je jednostavna za korišćenje, validna i pouzdana za proce-
nu nosne opstrukcije. Zbog toga je peporučujemo za upotrebu
u svakodnevnoj rinološkoj praksi kao i u budućim kliničkim is-
traživanjima u populaciji koja govori srpski jezik.

la se koristi u kliničkoj praksi za procenu kvaliteta života bole-
snika sa nazalnom opstrukcijom. Do sada je validirana u ne-
koliko zemalja. Cilj ove studije je bio da se validira i kultural-
no adaptira NOSE skala za korišćenje u srpskoj populaciji.
Metode. Srpska verzija NOSE scale (NOSE-s) je pripremana
na sledeći način: prevodom na srpski jezik, potom povratnim
prevodom na engleski jezik, komisijskim pregledom prevoda i
pretestiranjem skale. Proces validacije sproveden je u grupi od
50 bolesnika sa postavljenom dijagnozom devijacije nosne
pregrade (studijska grupa) i među 50 bolesnika koji su se lečili
na Klinici za uho, grlo i nos, kod kojih je postavljena dijagno-
za nekog drugog ne-rinološkog problema (kontrolna grupa).
Rezultati. NOSE-s instrument je pokazao dobru pouzdanost
(Cronbach α coefficient 0.81). Stabilnost i pouzdanost NO-
SE-s upitnika su potvrđeni test-retest procedurom pokazujući
da nema statistički značajne razlike u dobijenim odgovorima
(Goodman-Kruskal gamma coefficient 0.83). Skor pojedinačnih pi-
tanja, kao i ukupan zbir su bili viši u studijskoj grupi bolesnika
nego u kontrolnoj grupi, pokazujući da postoji razlika između
grupa (p < 0.001). Međusobna veza između pojedinačnih pita-
nja i pojedinačnog pitanja i ukupnog zbira je bila sličnih vred-
nosti kao i kod originalne skale. Tri meseca nakon septoplastike
prosečan NOSE-s skor je bio 19.2 ± 12.8. Izračunata je i vred-
nost standardized response mean (1.7) koja je pokazala visoku senzi-
tivnost upitnika na promenu. Zaključak. Srpska verzija NOSE
skale je jednostavna za korišćenje, validna i pouzdana za proce-
nu nosne opstrukcije. Zbog toga je peporučujemo za upotrebu
u svakodnevnoj rinološkoj praksi kao i u budućim kliničkim is-
traživanjima u populaciji koja govori srpski jezik.",

AB  - Objectives The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between side asymmetry in nasal resistance (NR) and severity of the nasal airway obstruction (NAO) in patients with different types of nasal septal deformity (NSD). Design Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) study. Setting The study was conducted in a tertiary medical centre. Participants The study included 232 patients, who were referred to the CT examination of the paranasal sinuses. Exclusion criteria were sinonasal and respiratory diseases that may interfere with the nasal obstruction. The presence and the type of NSD were recorded according to the Mladina's classification. Main outcome measures The presence and severity of NAO in each patient were assessed by NOSE questionnaire. Eight computational models of the nasal cavity were created from CT scans. Models represented seven Mladina's NSD types and a straight septum of a symptomless patient. CFD calculated airflow partitioning and NR for each nasal passage. Side differences in NR were calculated by the equation increment NR = NRleft - NRright. The relationship between NOSE scores, airflow partitioning and side differences in NR was explored using Spearman's correlation analysis. Results Mladina's types of NSD showed differences in airflow partitioning and the degree of side asymmetry in NR. A significant positive correlation was detected between side differences in NR and NOSE scores (R = .762, P = .028). A significant negative correlation was found between the per cent of unilateral airflow and NR (R = -.524, P = .037). Conclusions Our results demonstrated that side asymmetry in NR could explain differences in NAO severity related to the NSD type.

AB  - Objective: We aimed to investigate alteration in cellular signaling mediated by vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and parameters of oxidative stress/nitric oxide generation, superoxide dismutase (SOD) and neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS), underlying altered functional mechanical loading of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) during lateral mandibular deviation. Design: Thirty-eight 5-week-old male Wistar rats were divided into experimental group, which received acrylic resin appliance that shifted mandible to the left during closure, and control group. Computed tomography and histomorphometry were used for condyle analyses, while samples of condyle, synovial membrane and m. masseter were analyzed with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and spectrophotometry to determine VEGF and nNOS protein concentrations, and SOD activity. Results: Experimental group of rats developed smaller and asymmetrical mandibles. Less of new bone and cartilage formation and larger bone marrow cavities area were found in the experimental group. Higher VEGF expression in condyle and m. masseter as well as higher nNOS expression in m. masseter and synovial membrane were found in the experimental compared to the control group. Alteration of SOD activity was found in m. masseter and synovial membrane in the experimental group. Conclusions: Lateral mandibular deviation induces mandibular and condylar morphological changes as well as significant cellular signaling alterations in condyle, synovial membrane and masticatory muscle. Cellular VEGF protein overexpression and oxidative stress/nitric oxide disbalance could be the mechanisms underlying unbalanced functional TMJ loading due to mandibular deviation.

AB  - Background: Secondary tumours of the hyoid bone and thyroid cartilage are extremely rare. In this paper, we present a case of the hyoid bone and thyroid cartilage metastases in a patient treated for sigmoid colon adenocarcinoma. Case Report: Four years after sigmoid colon adenocarcinoma was diagnosed and treated with surgery and chemotherapy, the patient developed bone metastases in the left sacroiliac joint and right proximal humerus. Although the patient did not complain of any related symptoms, in a bone scintigraphy the accumulation of Technetium-99m was incidentally detected in the two sites of the anterior neck. On ultrasound examination there were two hyperechoic and heterogeneous masses with calcifications placed in front of the hyoid bone and thyroid cartilage. Computerized tomography demonstrated massive hyoid bone and thyroid cartilage destruction. Conclusion: In patients with progressive sigmoid colon adenocarcinoma, destruction of the hyoid bone and thyroid cartilage could be suspected for metastases.

AB  - Anatomy of frontal sinuses varies individually, from differences in volume and shape to a rare case when the sinuses are absent. However, there are scarce data related to influence of these variations on impact generated fracture pattern. Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyse the influence of frontal sinus volume on the stress distribution and fracture pattern in the frontal region. The study included four representative Finite Element models of the skull. Reference model was built on the basis of computed tomography scans of a human head with normally developed frontal sinuses. By modifying the reference model, three additional models were generated: a model without sinuses, with hypoplasic, and with hyperplasic sinuses. A 7.7 kN force was applied perpendicularly to the forehead of each model, in order to simulate a frontal impact. The results demonstrated that the distribution of impact stress in frontal region depends on the frontal sinus volume. The anterior sinus wall showed the highest fragility in case with hyperplasic sinuses, whereas posterior wall/inner plate showed more fragility in cases with hypoplasic and undeveloped sinuses. Well-developed frontal sinusesmight, through absorption of the impact energy by anterior wall, protect the posterior wall and intracranial contents.

AB  - Background/AimLe Fort lines have traditionally been considered as zones of weakness in the mid-facial skeleton although the structural basis of increased bone fragility at these sites has not yet been investigated. Considering recent findings of occlusal loading-related regional heterogeneity in the mid-facial bone micro-architecture, the aim of this study was to explore whether such heterogeneity in cortical and cancellous bone micro-architecture may contribute to increased fragility at Le Fort fracture sites. Materials and MethodsTwenty-five cortical and thirteen cancellous bone specimens were harvested from a dry skull and analyzed by micro-CT. Specimens were classified into Le Fort or Non-Le Fort groups based on their location in the mid-facial skeleton. ResultsCortical bone along Le Fort lines showed tendencies toward lower thickness (1.50.63 vs 1.75 +/- 0.79; P=.39) and greater porosity (11.48 +/- 5.67 vs 10.28 +/- 5.28; P=.59). A significant difference was detected in the trabecular degree of anisotropy which was higher in cancellous bone from Le Fort fracture sites (2.14 +/- 0.69 vs 1.58 +/- 0.34; P=.02). ConclusionsRegional heterogeneity in cortical bone micro-architecture could not fully explain increased fragility of the mid-facial skeleton at the Le Fort lines. However, regional differences in trabecular bone anisotropy may contribute to increased bone fragility.

AB  - Endocranial bone lesions have attracted intensive scientific debate on their aetiology. In recent literature, the lesions were almost exclusively interpreted as of infectious origin. In this paper, we give new insight into the aetiology of endocranial lesions, distinguishing the lesions of vascular origin from those caused by tuberculosis or other conditions. The analysis is based on a rare case of a young female individual who displayed multiple endocranial lesions with ‘serpens endocrania symmetrica’ morphology. The lesions were associated with an uncommon branching pattern of the middle meningeal artery and marked side differences in teeth pathology. Postcranial skeleton showed signs of the left upper limb weakness. The macroscopic finding of the endocranial lesions along with the skeletal evidence of neurological damage, together with characteristic radiological and histological features, can lead to diagnosis of arteriovenous malformations. This study aims to improve understanding of the aetiology of endocranial bone lesions.

AB  - Understanding of the occlusal load distribution through the mid-facial skeleton in natural dentition is essential because alterations in magnitude and/or direction of occlusal forces may cause remarkable changes in cortical and trabecular bone structure. Previous analyses by strain gauge technique, photoelastic and, more recently, finite element (FE) methods provided no direct evidence for occlusal load distribution through the cortical and trabecular bone compartments individually. Therefore, we developed an improved three-dimensional FE model of the human skull in order to clarify the distribution of occlusal forces through the cortical and trabecular bone during habitual masticatory activities. Particular focus was placed on the load transfer through the anterior and posterior maxilla. The results were presented in von Mises stress (VMS) and the maximum principal stress, and compared to the reported FE and strain gauge data. Our qualitative stress analysis indicates that occlusal forces distribute through the mid-facial skeleton along five vertical and two horizontal buttresses. We demonstrated that cortical bone has a priority in the transfer of occlusal load in the anterior maxilla, whereas both cortical and trabecular bone in the posterior maxilla are equally involved in performing this task Observed site dependence of the occlusal load distribution may help clinicians in creating strategies for implantology and orthodontic treatments. Additionally, the magnitude of VMS in our model was significantly lower in comparison to previous FE models composed only of cortical bone. This finding suggests that both cortical and trabecular bone should be modeled whenever stress will be quantitatively analyzed.

AB  - Although the concept of the occlusal load transfer through the facial skeleton along the buttresses has been extensively studied, there has been no study to link microarchitecture of the mid-facial bones to the occlusal load distribution. The aim of this study was to analyze micro-structural properties of the mid-facial bones in relation to occlusal stress. The study was performed by combining the three-dimensional finite element analysis (3D FEA) and micro-computed tomography analysis (micro-CT). Clenching was simulated on the computer model of the adult male human skull which was also used as a source of bone specimens. After the PEA was run, stress was measured at the specific sites in cortical shell and trabecular bone of the model along and between the buttresses. From the corresponding sites on the skull, twenty-five cortical and thirteen cancellous bone specimens were harvested. The specimens were classified into high stress or low stress group based on the stress levels measured via the FEA. Micro-architecture of each specimen was assessed by micro-CT. In the high stress group, cortical bone showed a tendency toward greater thickness and density, lower porosity, and greater pore separation. Stress-related differences in microstructure between the groups were more pronounced in trabecular bone, which showed significantly greater bone volume fraction (BV/TV) and trabecular thickness (Tb.Th) in the high stress group. Our results suggest that the mid-facial bones in the adult dentate male skull exhibit regional variations in cortical and trabecular bone micro-architecture that could be a consequence of different occlusal

AB  - Приликом ревизионих ископавања црквe Светог Јована у Студеници 2012. године поново је истражен и документован ктиторки гроб. У раду је дата антрополошка анализа откривених скелетних остатака. Анализа је обухватила: испитивање степена очуваности костију, утврђивање полне припадности, индивидуалне старости и телесне висине скелета, анализу морфолошких и метричких елемената, израчунавање кранијалних и посткранијалних индекса, посматрање епигенетских карактеристика и макроскопског прегледа ентеза, анализу присутних зуба, као и детаљан опис и тумачење откривених патолошких стања. Утврђено је да је у гробу био сахрањен мушкарац, који је у тренутку смрти имао 35–45 година, као и да је током живота боловао од анкилозирајућег спондилитиса. У горњим вилицама је регистрован недостатак (хиподонција) сталних латералних секутића, док је у доњој вилици утврђено постојање torus mandibularis-а.

AB  - Background: Developmental disturbances of the paranasal sinuses are proposed as the cause of osteoma. We examined whether such disturbances may result in the frequent presence of anatomical variations of the paranasal sinuses in patients with osteoma. Methodology/Principal: The study was performed retrospectively on 2,820 patients subjected to CT examination during 2005 - 2011. Demographic and CT characteristics of osteoma, and associated pathological findings were evaluated for 104 patients with diagnosed osteoma. The presence of anatomical variations was assessed for 51 osteoma patients with a complete medical history, and for 1,233 patients from a control group. Results: The prevalence of osteomas was found to be 3.69%, with male to female ratio 1.08:1. The frontal sinus was most commonly affected, The presence of anatomical variations was more frequent in patients with osteoma than in controls, with significant differences confirmed for the sphenomaxillary plate, infraorbital cell, and crista galli pneumatization. Conclusions: The paranasal sinus osteoma is associated with higher prevalence of anatomical variations, This can be explained either by the stronger influence of genetic and/or environmental factors on the development of the paranasal sinuses in patients with osteoma, or by their higher susceptibility to abovementioned factors.

AB  - Children are often under-represented in excavated populations due to the poor survival of their bones. Using a group of medieval burials from Serbia, our researchers examine the differential survival of children and of different parts of the body within the same terrain, and rightly urge us to take these factors into consideration before attempting demographic, ritual or social interpretations.
