From Cystostomy to Active Decompression: The Surgeons’ Battle Against Odontogenic Cysts


From Cystostomy to Active Decompression: The Surgeons’ Battle Against Odontogenic Cysts
Los quistes odontogénicos representan un desafío para los cirujanos orales y maxilofaciales. Las opciones de tratamiento incluyen cirugía resectiva y enfoques conservadores. El propósito de este artículo es revisar la historia de la marsupialización/descompresión y otras técnicas basadas en principios similares.
