Treatment of Craniomaxillofacial Fibrous Dysplasia
Abstract: Fibrous dysplasia is a benign osseous disease, although radical resection is commonly recommended because of the possibility of recurrence or malignant change. However, radical resection is undesirable, particularly in the maxillofacial region, because facial bones are difficult to replace in an aesthetically-pleasing manner after radical excision. In our department, conservative shaving, as reported by Chen and Noordhoff, is used to reduce tumor volume while maintaining facial aesthetics that are as normal as possible. We have experienced eight cases of craniomaxillofacial fibrous dysplasia and successfully applied conservative shaving to the maxillofacial lesions. These cases have exhibited no recurrence, and their facial contours have improved remarkably.
