Background: facial injury has led to furtherance in techniques of internal fixation,
improvements in plating system. Trauma to the facial bones and exposure of the site
and internal fixation with micro and mini plates. Evaluating 10 patients with fractures
of maxilla and mandible and open reduction and internal fixation with and comparison
of micro and mini plates with load bearing capacity, stability at the fracture site and
postoperative complications. Objectives: Comparison of micro and mini plates in
maxillofacial trauma cases.
Materials and Methods: Sample consists 10 subjects, 5 each in two groups clinically and
radiographically diagnosed with Group 1 (maxillary fractures) and Group 2
(mandibular fractures) which were subdivided into 5 each treated with miniplate and
microplate respectively. All cases have been evaluated clinically for various parameters
for minimum of 1 months 2 month and 3 months of assessment of any postoperative
complications. Post operative evaluation for pain and fracture site stability and post of
infections, mouth opening, wound healing was observed.
Results: Study resulted as microplates are more and enough stability and have good
adequate capacity of adaptation when compared with mini plates because of flexibity of
plate and less size of the microplates feels less hard than mini plates when used in
Conclusion: Microplates have good adequate adaptation and rigid enough to provide
adequate stability of the fracture segment when compared with mini plates, many
number of fractures evaluation in maxilla and mandible finally concluded microplates
are good at maxilla fixation and mandible.

Desmoplastic ameloblastoma (DA) a rare type of ameloblastoma, arises from the rests of dental lamina, developing enamel organ, epithelial lining of odontogenic cyst or from the basal cells of the oral mucosa. Clinically, DA develops as a slow growing, painless, bony hard swelling resulting in facial asymmetry. Histologically, it represents stromal collagenization or desmoplasia with small nests and strands of odontogenic epithelium. But the true biologic profile of DA is not well understood as they mimic fibro-osseous lesions clinico-radiographically. As DA is a rare entity,we aim to discuss three case reports of DA from a single institution which deserves pre-eminence owing to its distinct site, radiological and histological features, local aggressiveness and high chance of false clinical appearance. Desmoplasia is an inductive phenomenon occurring in the mesenchymal tissue of the head and neck region. The pathologist and the clinician should be aware of the concepts and the association with malignant transformation and spread of the lesion in order to deliver appropriate treatment.

Fibrous dysplasia is an idiopathic skeletal disorder in which the trabecular bone is replaced and distorted by poorly organized, structurally unsound fibro-osseous tissue. The lesion is classified into two forms: Monostotic and polyostotic. Characteristic radiographic appearance shows an expanded osseous lesion having poorly defined margins covered by a thin “eggshell” cortex and lacking periosteal new bone formation.
