Resumen

HERNANDEZ VIGUERAS, Scarlette et al. Evaluation of Periapical Lesions by Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Patients Referred for Apical Surgery. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2017, vol.11, n.2, pp.128-132. ISSN 0718-381X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-381X2017000200002.

The use of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in endodontics has increased, justifying its use in more complex cases, such as apical surgery. The aim was to evaluate the radiologic characteristics found in a group of patients referred to apical surgery, using CBCT. A descriptive study was conducted in a group of patients referred for apical surgery. In these patients, a clinical examination, a conventional radiographic evaluation and CBCT were performed. A total of 18 patients were examined (6 men and 12 women), ages were between 19 and 64 years old. The major diameter of the lesions ranged from 6 mm to 16 mm. The use of CBCT in apical surgery provides more complete information to the surgeon, allowing greater precision when performing surgical access and detects a greater number of periapical lesions than with conventional radiography. In complex cases is possible obtain better diagnosis and treatment planning.

Palabras clave : cone beam computed tomography; endodontic; apical surgery.
