Complete Healing of Radicular Cysts only by Marsupialization


Cagri Delilbasi, Emir Yuzbasioglu and Kader AydiN

Marsupialization is defined as opening a window in the cyst wall which enables integration of the cyst lining with oral mucosa. This helps shrinkage of the cyst and provides more conservative surgical procedure fortotal removal of the lesion. Marsupialization is usually performed prior to enucleation and curettage. However, complete healing of the relatively large cysts in adults only by marsupialization is rare. Here we reported two cases of large radicular cysts of the jaws those treated only by marsupialization.
