ABSTRACT

Unlabelled: Brief background: Oroantral communication (OAC) is the space created between the maxillary sinus and the oral cavity, which, if not treated, will progress to oroantral fistula (OAF). Several methods of surgical OAC repair have been described, but only a few have gained recognition.

Materials and methods: A 13 years old male child patient with complaint of difficulty in drinking water and change in voice diagnosed as OAF managed with closure with buccal fat pad (BFP).

Discussion: Oroantral fistula is an abnormal communication resulting most frequently from extraction of the upper posterior teeth. Many techniques have been proposed for the closure. The preferred technique may vary from one surgeon to another.

Conclusion: The adequate availability of BFP in children, effortless mobilization excellent blood supply and minimal donor site morbidity make it a perfect flap for OAF closure in pediatric patient.

Figure 1: Oroantral fistula with gutta-percha placed in it

Mentions: A 13 years old male child reported to the department of pedodontics, PGIDS, Rohtak with chief complaint of difficulty in drinking water and change in voice since 1 month. Patient gave history of traumatic removal of his right upper back tooth (due to caries) 1 month back following which these problems started. On examination, his right maxillary permanent first molar was missing, there was slight opening on the buccal side of the alveolar process. There was nasal discharge of oral fluids along with nasal twang. Diagnosis of OAF was made (Figs 1 and 2). Patient was then referred to department of oral and maxillofacial surgery for further management.
