Name: Plastic and reconstructive surgery
Neuronavigation, a ubiquitous tool used in neurosurgery, is rarely used in maxillofacial reconstructive surgery despite it offering many advantages without any disadvantage to the patient. The present...
The pediatric craniofacial skeleton fractures in patterns distinct from those typical in adults; this has implications pertinent to management that may go unrecognized. The authors reviewed multilevel...
Education and training of local healthcare staff is a crucial component of a surgical mission. Facing The World (FTW) is a UK-based craniofacial charity that provides facial reconstructive surgery to ...
Reconstructive plastic surgery is vital in assisting patients with reintegration into society after events such as tumor extirpation, trauma, or infection have left them with a deficit of normal tissu...
Investigator initial study to evaluate the use of preoperative computer modeling and the intraoperative navigation to guide reconstruction of the maxillofacial skeleton.
Craniofacial reconstruction surgery involves a surgical approach to the craniofacial region to repair cranial vault and facial deformities. The surgery is extensive, often requiring wide ...
The main objectives of the trial are the efficacy and safety of intercostal nerve block in the midaxillary line versus paravertebral block, both guided by ultrasound in patients scheduled ...
Surgical procedures for the correction of craniofacial deformities result in unavoidable and significant blood loss in small children and infants. Patients may experience blood losses that...
Primary Objective: To determine whether the use of a paravertebral block in patients undergoing reconstructive surgery for breast cancer results in decreased immediate post-operative pain...
A procedure whereby the body is stimulated to generate extra soft tissue by the application of stretching forces that stimulate new growth of tissue which, over a period of time, results in a 2-dimensional expansion of the tissue. The procedure is used in reconstructive surgery for injuries caused by trauma, burns, or ablative surgery. Various types of TISSUE EXPANSION DEVICES have been developed that exert stretching forces.
Loose, usually removable intra-oral devices which alter the muscle forces against the teeth and craniofacial skeleton. These are dynamic appliances which depend on altered neuromuscular action to effect bony growth and occlusal development. They are usually used in mixed dentition to treat pediatric malocclusions. (ADA, 1992)
Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It seeks to improve oral, dental and craniofacial health through research, research training, and the dissemination of health information by conducting and supporting basic and clinical research. It was established in 1948 as the National Institute of Dental Research and re-named in 1998 as the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.
A long flat muscle that extends along the whole length of both sides of the abdomen. It flexes the vertebral column, particularly the lumbar portion; it also tenses the anterior abdominal wall and assists in compressing the abdominal contents. It is frequently the site of hematomas. In reconstructive surgery it is often used for the creation of myocutaneous flaps. (From Gray's Anatomy, 30th American ed, p491)
