Intérêt de la scintigraphie osseuse dans la prise en charge des ostéonécroses des maxillaires liées aux bisphosphonates

Abstract : First cases of bisphosphonates related osteonecrosis of jaws (BRONJ) have been described in 2003. Since then, this subject is one of the central concerns of several scientific communities, well beyond the oral sphere. The prevalence of BRONJ is evolving. Their etiology is not well established and the results of the treatments are inconstant. So many points that make the care to patients under bisphosphonates really complex. Early diagnosis is essential in treatment outcome. So nuclear imaging including scintigraphy with technetium 99m seems to be helpful. It may allow detection before the onset of symptoms, facilitate localization of necrosis and it may be useful for the monitoring of such lesions after surgery. These are new applications for oncologist and dentist, in order to improve the management of patients treated by bisphosphonates.
