Abstract

HPVs are a large and varied group of viruses capable of infecting both animals and humans. They have evolved together with their respective hosts and are isolable in different and numerous species of birds, reptiles, marsupials and mammals. The present study aims to analyze and compare the epidemiological aspects of 251 HPV-associated benign lesions treated with three different surgical approaches. Between January 2004 and December 2019, 251 HPV-associated benign lesions (papillomas and / or condylomas) were treated at the Center of Medicina e Patologia Orale Laser Assistita of the University of Parma. After loco-regional anesthesia, the excisional biopsy was performed with A): 15C scalpel blade; B): molecular quantum resonance scalpel (RQM); C): Nd: YAG laser (1064 mn, 3.5W, 70Hz). The epidemiological analysis considered: gender, age, site of the lesion, surgical technique and recurrence. Our study did not show substantial differences in gender prevalence and the mean age of 50 years (minimum 8 years, maximum 85 years). Our study showed that HPV-associated lesions are localized in almost half of patients (47.9%) on the tongue or hard palate, less frequently on the cheeks (16.3%) and on the upper or lower lip (14,4) and in less than 10% of patients in the soft palate. Our study showed a low relapse rate (3%) for all three therapeutic approaches used, meaning that the cold blade, RQM scalpel and Nd: YAG laser can be successfully used to treat lesions associated with HPV, the laser approach has proved to be slightly more effective: probably thanks to the radicalization obtained through carbonization of the biopsy surrounding tissues. Since a small group of these viruses are the responsible agent of several types of human cancers (including squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity), early screening and treatment of HPV-associated lesions is essential to prevent the development of oncological diseases.
