Condylar position can change after mandibular reconstruction using the free fibula flap. The present study evaluated changes in condylar position using computed tomography (CT) after mandibular reconstruction with condylar head preservation.
This article was published in the following journal.
The structure of the mandibular condylar cartilage (MCC) is regulated by dynamic and multifactorial processes. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of altered dietary loading, estrogen lev...
To investigate the changes in insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) expression levels in the degenerative mandibular condylar cartilage.
This study aimed to evaluate and compare the demographic characteristics of mandibular condylar fractures between children and adolescents.
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of mandibular forward repositioning on expression of lubricin in rat posterior condylar cartilage.
In surgical approaches to condylar fractures, there is a risk of damage to the transverse facial artery (TFA) which may in turn account for impaired blood supply to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). ...
In condylar fracture surgery, reduction is the most difficult step and the key factor which determined the postoperative outcome. Therefore, the aim of this study is to develop a new instr...
Of all the bones in the maxillofacial area, the condylar process is the most susceptible to fracture. The incidence of condylar fracture accounts for 25% to 50% of all mandibular fractures...
this study is to compare the posterior condylar offset , posterior condylar offset ratio and tibial slope of Egyptian population with Asian and Western results.These results may be importa...
In the small and highly specialized field of TMJ surgical treatments, restriction of the mandibular condylar movement outside of the articular eminence is one of the treatment choices sugg...
Patients with mandibular sub-condylar fractures underwent either either open reduction with internal fixation (ORIF) or closed reduction with external fixation (CREF) and were followed up ...
The posterior process on the ramus of the mandible composed of two parts: a superior part, the articular portion, and an inferior part, the condylar neck.
The physical restoration of oromandibular defects.
Moving a retruded mandible forward to a normal position. It is commonly performed for malocclusion and retrognathia. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992)
A complete denture replacing all the natural mandibular teeth and associated structures. It is completely supported by the oral tissue and underlying mandibular bone.
Endovascular reconstruction of an artery, which may include the removal of atheromatous plaque and/or the endothelial lining as well as simple dilatation. These are procedures performed by catheterization. When reconstruction of an artery is performed surgically, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.
