1.Posterior lingual glands consist of two sets of minor salivary glands that serve important functions in oral physiology. To investigate the hypothesis that the hypoglossal nerve provides sympathetic innervation to the posterior lingual glands. We provide the first evidence of the structural and functional connections between the sympathetic component of the hypoglossal nerve and posterior lingual glands.
2.A staging system based on the degrees of bone exposure (E), infection (I), and bleeding (B) was developed. Cumulative success of treatment and risk factors that affect treatment outcomes were analyzed. The grades of infection and bleeding are important factors in guidance of treatment and prediction of outcomes.
