Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the actual outcome of marsupialization when it is applied as the sole treatment of large jaw cysts. Twenty patients were included, where cyst marsupialization was performed, spiral CT scan was utilized in diagnosing, treatment planning and follow-up of the patients at 3 months, 6 months and 12months intervals. Results showed, that marsupialization is a reliable procedure for treatment of large jaw cysts, with complete elimination of the cystic cavity both clinically and radio-graphically in thirteen cases, while significant reduction in the size of the cavity was shown in the remaining seven cases. However it is expected that there will be complete elimination of the cavities within those patients at a longer follow-up period. © IDOSI Publications, 2013.
