To compare two distraction osteogenesis techniques in post-traumatic tibial nonunion patients with composite bone and soft tissue defects.

Posterior mandibulectomy defects can be reconstructed using either soft tissue or vascularized bone. The authors hypothesize that advances in computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD-CAM) have res...
In a high conflict region, war injuries to the distal lower extremity are a major source of large composite defects involving bone and soft tissues. These defects are at the edge between using a singl...
Using mouse model of regeneration of critical size cranial defects, we studied combined effect of 1 and 10 μg of BMP-2 of prokaryotic origin and recombinant erythropoietin (Epostim) injected subcutan...
Previous studies have suggested that treatment plans for segmental bone defects (SBDs) are affected by the bone defect sizes. If the selected treatment was not the most appropriate, it would not contr...
Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw in its advanced stages requires surgical treatment to resolve the pathology and to achieve good long-term results. After complete removal of the necrotic bo...
This study will test whether the combined treatment of 0.01% atropine and soft bifocal contact lens wear produces slower myopia progression and axial elongation compared to soft bifocal co...
This study investigates safety and efficacy of traumatic bone defects treatment with use of 3D tissue engineered bone equivalent (3D-TEBE). The aim of this study is to evaluate 3D-TEBE tr...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether bifocal soft contact lenses (CLs) with low addition and nasally decentered optical zone are effective in controlling myopic progression in ...
The purpose of the study is to compare the visual performance of two soft bifocal contact lenses.
In this retrospective study, the investigators evaluated the clinical and functional results of infected nonunion of the long bone with soft-tissue defects treated simultaneously with Iliz...
Bone lengthening by gradual mechanical distraction. An external fixation device produces the distraction across the bone plate. The technique was originally applied to long bones but in recent years the method has been adapted for use with mandibular implants in maxillofacial surgery.
Injuries of tissue other than bone. The concept is usually general and does not customarily refer to internal organs or viscera. It is meaningful with reference to regions or organs where soft tissue (muscle, fat, skin) should be differentiated from bones or bone tissue, as "soft tissue injuries of the hand".
Infections of non-skeletal tissue, i.e., exclusive of bone, ligaments, cartilage, and fibrous tissue. The concept is usually referred to as skin and soft tissue infections and usually subcutaneous and muscle tissue are involved. The predisposing factors in anaerobic infections are trauma, ischemia, and surgery. The organisms often derive from the fecal or oral flora, particularly in wounds associated with intestinal surgery, decubitus ulcer, and human bites. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1688)
Implants used in arthroscopic surgery and other orthopedic procedures to attach soft tissue to bone. One end of a suture is tied to soft tissue and the other end to the implant. The anchors are made of a variety of materials including titanium, stainless steel, or absorbable polymers.
The soft tissue filling the cavities of bones. Bone marrow exists in two types, yellow and red. Yellow marrow is found in the large cavities of large bones and consists mostly of fat cells and a few primitive blood cells. Red marrow is a hematopoietic tissue and is the site of production of erythrocytes and granular leukocytes. Bone marrow is made up of a framework of connective tissue containing branching fibers with the frame being filled with marrow cells.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Anxiety is caused by stress. It is a natural reaction, and is beneficial in helping us deal with tense situations and pressure. It is deterimental when is becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations. The most common types of anxiety di...
