oral surgery in HIV
Jul 25, 2000

I'm in dentistry in Spain. I'm studying oral surgery and implantology in HIV patients. Do you send scientific references about this?. Thanks.

Response from Dr. Reznik

A reference that may be helpful is listed below:

"Human Immunodeficiency Virus serostatus and the risk for post operative complications" International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, 1994; 23:100 - 103; Dodson TB

For those who are wondering if there is any difference in post-operative complications after oral surgery for people living with HIV/AIDS, the answer is that most published literature shows no significant difference in outcomes based on HIV serostatus.

I hope this information proves helpful.
