The role of head posture has been demonstrated in patient with dentofacial deformities. However, the relationship between body posture and jaw disorders is unclear. Moreover, patients with...
The correlation between tooth inclination and bone thickness and the comparison between thickness measurements and buccolingual inclination before and after dental decompensation will be e...
Cleft palate repair requires high doses of opioids for pain control postop. An alternative approach is placement of nerve blocks in the pterygopalatine fossa bilaterally, blocking the maxi...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and duration of effect of bupivacaine given preoperatively as a bilateral suprazygomatic maxillary nerve block and to compare it with peri...
Orthognathic surgery is commonly performed for the treatment of dentofacial deformities. Yet, one of the most prevalent and long-term complication encountered is neurosensory disturbance t...
To estimate the cumulative incidence of arthritis-induced orofacial symptoms, dysfunctions, and dentofacial deformities in growing individuals with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) in a 36 month re...
Expansion of the maxilla using a segmental Le Fort I osteotomy is a routine and commonly used procedure in the treatment of dentofacial deformities. Although orthognathic surgery has seen tremendous a...
A common analgesic technique for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is to inject local anesthetic into the periarticular tissue during surgery, known as local infiltration analgesia (LIA). Since the soluti...
The buccal nerve (BN) supplies sensation to the skin over the anterior part of the buccinator, buccal mucosa, and buccal gingivae corresponding to the second and third molar teeth. Some dental anatomy...
The Le Fort I maxillary osteotomy is a versatile and simple procedure, which has gained popularity nowadays, to correct a wide range of malocclusion and maxillofacial deformities. This procedure is of...
The intermediate sensory division of the trigeminal (5th cranial) nerve. The maxillary nerve carries general afferents from the intermediate region of the face including the lower eyelid, nose and upper lip, the maxillary teeth, and parts of the dura.
An abnormality of the jaws or teeth affecting the contour of the face. Such abnormality could be acquired or congenital.
Sudden occurrence of BRADYCARDIA or HEART ARREST induced by manipulations of the MAXILLARY NERVE AND MANDIBULAR NERVE during a craniomaxillofacial or oral surgery. It is the maxillary and mandibular variants of OCULOCARDIAC REFLEX.
The intentional interruption of transmission at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION by external agents, usually neuromuscular blocking agents. It is distinguished from NERVE BLOCK in which nerve conduction (NEURAL CONDUCTION) is interrupted rather than neuromuscular transmission. Neuromuscular blockade is commonly used to produce MUSCLE RELAXATION as an adjunct to anesthesia during surgery and other medical procedures. It is also often used as an experimental manipulation in basic research. It is not strictly speaking anesthesia but is grouped here with anesthetic techniques. The failure of neuromuscular transmission as a result of pathological processes is not included here.
The air space located in the body of the MAXILLARY BONE near each cheek. Each maxillary sinus communicates with the middle passage (meatus) of the NASAL CAVITY on the same side.
