GARCIA PULIDO, Evelio; SUAREZ GONZALEZ, Joel  y  RODRIGUEZ SARDUY, René. Need for oral-maxillofacial protheses in Matanzas municipality in the year 1999. Rev Cubana Estomatol [online]. 2004, vol.41, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-297X.

This paper was aimed at finding out the need for oral-maxillofacial prostheses in Matanzas municipality as well as the performance of these appliances and their relation with sex, age and etiology. A cross-sectional descriptive study was made in which the population cared for by the different health care areas of this municipality was taken as reference. A stratified sampling design by conglomerates was applied to obtain a sample, finally composed of 1937 persons and those who met the inclusion criteria were administered the Oral-maxillofacial rehabilitation requirement survey. The results showed that the ocular oral maxillofacial prosthesis was the one that males and young patients preferred most. Trauma lesion was the predominant cause for both sexes followed by oncological problems. Auricular and maxillary regions were more affected in males than in females. No effects were seen in orbital, nasal, mandibular and complex regions.
