Learning objectives

The course aims to enable students to know and understand the major maxillofacial diseases and to orientate on the appropriate surgical treatment.
This does not mean the direct transfer of this knowledge on a practical application (the maxillo-facial surgery is a discipline of medical relevance), but the capacity of the practitioner to identify diseases and direct patients to an expert for a correct solution.

LEARNING OUTCOMES
The students at the end of the course will demonstrate knowledge and understanding about:
- Oro-maxillo-facial embryology and anatomy.

- Congenital malformations: cleft lip and palate syndrome of the 1st and 2nd branchial arch, craniofacial dysostosis
- Dysmorphoses: maxillary retrusion, maxillary protrusion, mandibular retrusion, progenism, laterodeviation, open bite, macroglossia.
- Trauma: injuries of the face, jaw fractures, zygomatic, mandibular condylar fractures, craniofacialfractures, malconsolidation.
- Neoplasms: skin cancer of the face and lips, epithelial tumors of the oral cavity and jaws, Etiopathogenesis of carcinoma of the oral cavity, symptoms and signs of cancer and cervical metastases, combination therapies, staging; mesenchymal tumors; cysts and odontogenic tumors; salivary gland tumors; reconstructive surgery maxillofacial.
- Inflammatory processes: odontogenic maxillary sinusitis, oro-sinusal communications; salivary stones, sialadenitis.
- Temporomandibular joint syndrome: algico-dysfunctional temporomandibular joint ankylosis, recurrent dislocation, extra-articular mouth opening limitations.

Teaching methods

Class lessons: the program themes will be discussed with the aid of slides. The proposed topics will be the subject of collective discussion and study on the basis of ideas and any questions raised during the lessons themselves.

Assessment methods and criteria

The achievement of the goals of the course is verified by an oral exam.
Answering questions about the contents of the course, the student will demonstrate whether he/she has achieved the goals of knowledge and understanding of the contents.
