Abstract

The aims of this study were to introduce fixed symmetrograph as a device to analyze arch symmetry and to compare the result of arch symmetry measurements using such appliance with commonly used symmetrograph in Faculty of Dentistry Padjadjaran Universitas (Orthocross). Twenty based study models used in this study. The method used in this study was by comparing the result of measurement using orthocross with the result of measurements using fixed symmetrograph. The result of this study revealed there was no significant difference between measurement using orthocross with measurement using fixed symmetrograph (P>0,05). Based on the result of this study, it is recommended to use this fixed symmetrograph, because there were several advantages using this device, for example, symmetrograph’s midlines superimpose exactly with study model’s midlines with the aid of two vertical pins. Even more, the study model can be fixated using two fixators so that the study model and fixed symmetrograph were not moving during measurement.

Abstract

Left untreated or not properly managed odontogenic infection can cause spreading into facial spaces. Severe oral and maxillofacial infection can spread systemically and cause sepsis.1 Sepsis can induce unfavorable condition for the kidney, which is Acute Kidney Injury (AKI).2,3 The aim of this paper is to report a rare case of an oral and maxillofacial  infection with sepsis-induced AKI and upper airway obstruction which have high mortality rate. The standard treatment consists of proper monitoring of vital function, fluid resuscitation, drainage of accumulated purulence, empirical use of antibiotics chosen to cover the spectrum of potential pathogens until culture results are available, and supplemental oxygen.1,4 This is a case report of  a 48 year old female patient with oral and maxillofacial infection suffers sepsis-induced AKI and upper airway  obstruction. This patient was diagnosed as right submandibular abscess  which has extended into right buccal space, with sepsis, stage I AKI, and upper airway obstruction due to retropharyngeal abscess. We managed this patient with oxygenation, fluid resuscitation, antibiotics and analgesic administration, incision and drainage, and also extraction of mandibular right third molar. Tracheostomy, incision and drainage of retropharyngeal abscess were supposed to be performed by ENT department, but the patient refused. However the patient still survived. In case of oral and maxillofacial infection, the involvement of distant organ should be investigated, because this conditions result in high mortality rate. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment are important and able to lead to a better survival.
