Measuring the Position of the Mandibular Foramen in Relation to the Dentoalveolar Plane in Pierre Robin Patients: Establishing Safety of the Horizontal Osteotomy.

Summary of "Measuring the Position of the Mandibular Foramen in Relation to the Dentoalveolar Plane in Pierre Robin Patients: Establishing Safety of the Horizontal Osteotomy."

Mandibular distraction with horizontal osteotomy of the ramus and vertical distraction vector has successfully treated airway obstruction in young Pierre Robin patients. Placing the osteotomy just above the dentoalveolar plane can minimize damage to the inferior alveolar nerve. This study maps the position of the mandibular foramen relative to the height of the dentoalveolar plane to demonstrate the safety of this technique in Pierre Robin neonates.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A physical misalignment of the upper (maxilla) and lower (mandibular) jaw bones in which either or both recede relative to the frontal plane of the forehead.

The location of the maxillary and the mandibular condyles when they are in their most posterior and superior positions in their fossae of the temporomandibular joint.

An opening in the wall between the right and the left upper chambers (HEART ATRIA) of a fetal heart. Oval foramen normally closes soon after birth; when it fails to close the condition is called PATENT OVAL FORAMEN.

A condition in which the FORAMEN OVALE in the ATRIAL SEPTUM fails to close shortly after birth. This results in abnormal communications between the two upper chambers of the heart. An isolated patent ovale foramen without other structural heart defects is usually of no hemodynamic significance.

The position or orientation of the FETUS at near term or during OBSTETRIC LABOR, determined by its relation to the SPINE of the mother and the birth canal. The normal position is a vertical, cephalic presentation with the fetal vertex flexed on the NECK.
