Hemimandibular hyperplasia was first described in 1836 by Adams as a disorder that causes condylar hyperplasia, deforming facial asymmetry and has an unknown etiology. The objective of this study was to report a patient with surgical correction through orthognathic surgery and high condilectomy for the treatment of hemimandibular hyperplasia. The patient complained of pain and cracking in the right temporomandibular joint region and was dissatisfied with the aesthetic appearance of the face. Virtual planning was done for bimaxillary orthognathic surgery and preparation of prototyped surgical guides. Stereolithographic models were used for the preparation of the acrylic guides of the osteotomies for the high condilectomy and the contour of the mandibular base. Orthognathic surgery resulted in the maxillary repositioning with correction of the inclination of the occlusal plane, reduction of the height of the ramus and right mandibular body and class I dental attachment. Mandibular contour osteotomy was performed with acrylic guide in the basilar. The condilectomy was performed by endaural access. In 2-year follow-up, there are no signs of recurrence.

Second-stage reconstruction of mandibular defects faces problems of anatomic disorder and bone displacement due to tumor resection. As a newer technique, virtual surgical planning (VSP) may help to in...
Virtual surgical planning (VSP) uses patient-specific modelling of the facial skeleton to provide a tailored surgical plan which may increase accuracy and reduce operating time. The aim of this study ...
Virtual surgical planning (VSP) is increasingly described in craniofacial surgery literature. However, the quality of the literature that has been published is unknown. The objective of this systemati...

An orally active TESTOSTERONE 5-ALPHA-REDUCTASE inhibitor. It is used as a surgical alternative for treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Treatment technique in a virtual environment which allows the participant to experience a sense of presence in an immersive, computer-generated, three-dimensional, interactive environment that minimizes avoidance behavior and facilitates emotional involvement. (from Curr Psychiatry Rep (2010) 12:298)
Benign proliferation of the ENDOMETRIUM in the UTERUS. Endometrial hyperplasia is classified by its cytology and glandular tissue. There are simple, complex (adenomatous without atypia), and atypical hyperplasia representing also the ascending risk of becoming malignant.
A treatment program based on manipulation of the patient's environment by the medical staff. The patient does not participate in planning the treatment regimen.
Areawide planning for hospitals or planning of a particular hospital unit on the basis of projected consumer need. This does not include hospital design and construction or architectural plans.
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...
Pain is a feeling (sharp or dull) triggered in the nervous system which can be transient or constant. Pain can be specific to one area of the body eg back, abdomen or chest or more general all over the body eg muscles ache from the flu. Without pain ...
