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 order to investigate the risk of damage to the TFA, and prevent lesions to this artery resulting from TMJ surgical procedures, we studied the distance between the TFA and the head of the condylar process.

Fractures of the mandibular condyle are reported to account for 9 %-45 % of all mandibular fractures. There has been a long lasting controversy on the superiority of different treatment options with e...
Increased anatomical knowledge of skin vascularization, such as the recent description of angiosome and perforasome concepts, has led to important innovations in flap surgery. In this sense, few studi...
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 recons...
The transverse facial artery (TFA) perfuses the lateral face. Knowledge of topographical anatomy of the lateral face is crucial for safe procedural performance in aesthetic and plastic surgery, especi...
The aim of the study was to evaluate the resorption of the mandibular condylar head after open reduction and internal fixation of fractures with small-fragment screws and to evaluate the functional ou...
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...
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...
To compare the effect of redesigned transverse facial cleft treatment and traditional transverse facial cleft treatment.
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 ...
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...
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.
Artery originating from the internal carotid artery and distributing to the eye, orbit and adjacent facial structures.
The artery supplying nearly all the left half of the transverse colon, the whole of the descending colon, the sigmoid colon, and the greater part of the rectum. It is smaller than the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) and arises from the aorta above its bifurcation into the common iliac arteries.
An extra-anatomic method of surgical revascularization in which the AXILLARY ARTERY is anastomosed to FEMORAL ARTERY.
The application of scientific knowledge or technology to the field of radiology. The applications center mostly around x-ray or radioisotopes for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes but the technological applications of any radiation or radiologic procedure is within the scope of radiologic technology.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
