Recurrence of nonsyndromic odontogenic keratocyst after marsupialization and delayed enucleation vs. enucleation alone: a systematic review and meta-analysis
- 68 Downloads
This study was conducted in order to determine whether marsupialization before definitive enucleation of nonsyndromic odontogenic keratocysts (OKCs) is capable of decreasing the recurrence rate more effectively than just enucleation.
We searched MEDLINE, Web of Science, Scopus, and Cochrane Library, until August 5th of 2017 for original studies reporting on the treatment of OKCs with and without previous marsupialization and the related recurrence rate. All records and data were independently assessed, meta-analysis was performed, and the odds ratio of recurrence was the effect measure; P value for the summary effect of < 0.05 was considered statistically significant.
The 748 records retrieved were reduced to 6 studies to be qualitatively assessed and 5 studies were included in the meta-analysis. The overall odds ratio of 0.57 [0.25–1.28] of the pooled values pointed that marsupialization reduced the recurrence rate in comparison to just enucleation; however, the P value showed that there is no strong evidence to support this statement.
Marsupialization followed by enucleation after 12 to 18 months reduces the recurrence rate, but more studies are necessary to support this statement.
