Necrosis of the Jaw - presented by Professor Alastair Goss
Tue. 30 May 2017, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm ACST
Jaw death was once considered rare. However, following the introduction of bisphosphonates it became quite common. It was of particular interest to dentists as usually the condition was triggered by simple dental treatment, most commonly extractions.
In this course the structure and function of normal bone; the effect of various therapies on the jaw bone; the differential diagnosis, prevention and management will be prevented.
This will include the struggles to bring this complication to the attention of the medical profession and its clinical and medico legal consequences.
About the Presenter:
Emeritus Professor Alastair Goss was the long term Professor and Director of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Adelaide and Royal Adelaide Hospital. His particular interest has always been in the management of complex cases. His particular interest in necrosis of the jaws was triggered when he saw a large number of cases following extractions in otherwise well patients. These were different to irradiated mandibles and other jaw pathologic cases. This triggered detailed investigations which have gained international interest. He continues to investigate and advise on complex cases.
