Recently, number 507 of the scientific journal of the Croatian Academy of Science and Art, and more precisely 34th number of the Medical sciences Class was published. It should be stressed that only a year after the founding of the Academy (1866), under the first president Dr. Franjo Rački, the year 1867 saw publication of the scientific journal titled “Rad” (Croat. work) that represents the oldest such journal in Croatia and its vicinity. Up until number 60 it was a joint publication of all the classes of Academy, and subsequently some of the classes begun to publish their own series of “Rad”. The Class of the Medical Sciences started the publication of its own series in 1951, and has endured with minor interruptions in publication.
It must be pointed out that this number, 507/34, is the first in the history of the Academy and the Class of the Medical Sciences that is entirely dedicated to dental medicine, and the guest editor is for the first time a dentist (V. Jerolimov, associated member of the CASA). The content is based on the themes of the traditional symposium on temporomandibular disorders that is organized by the Class of the Medical Sciences of the Croatian Academy of Science and Art (chairpersons M. Valentić-Peruzović and V. Jerolimov), and all manuscripts are available on the scientific journal portal of Croatia (http://hrcak.srce.hr) under the title Biomedicine and healthcare.
3rd Symposium on temporomandibular disorders was organized in December 2009 under the title Scientific approach to differential diagnosis of temporomandibular disorders, when a contingent of acclaimed professionals held interesting lectures, analyzing the topic mostly in a multidisciplinary approach. The main aim of the symposium was to present scientific basis for differential diagnosis of temporomandibular disorders.
These disorders are some of the most demanding diseases in the population regarding the diagnosis, therapy and prognosis, in adults and children alike. Temporomandibular disorders have variable symptoms, pain being one of the more frequent signs that are most debilitating for the patients. The etiology is usually very clear, but sometimes completely puzzling. Therefore, many scientists and clinicians throughout the world are involved in the research of such disorders, and even some organizational units of clinical, scientific and academic institutions are involved.
These disorders require team work and multidisciplinary approach, early discovery and detailed choice of diagnostic and therapeutic measures. Until now, many specialist divisions of medicine and dental medicine have been involved in the research of these disorders: dental medicine, ENT surgery, neurology, psychiatry, rheumatology, physiatry, radiology, just to name a few. This is the reason for incomplete understanding of these disorders, in spite of great advances in research. The total knowledge database is dispersed in the mentioned disciplines, and there is not enough communication among the different specialists and subspecialists, so there is, consequently, a lack of harmonization among the disciplines.
Current approach to patients with temporomandibular disorders demands multidisciplinarity. This has been pointed out during the symposium, stressing only evidence-based medical procedures can enable us to reach correct diagnosis and treatment of temporomandibular disorders.
