Several technical modifications based on the anatomical position of the neurovascular bundle and its bony mandibular canal have been developed, aiming to prevent injury to the intraalveola...
Patients who have mandibular deformity and will undergo bilateral sagittal split osteotomy will be included in the study.One side of the osteotomies randomly will be considered as study gr...
The goal of this study is to evaluate whether the use of a bone graft substitute at the osteotomy site will result in better stability and diminish early relapse after mandibular lengtheni...
Bimaxillary osteotomy is a surgery procedure of the orthognathic surgery field with the aim to correct dental and facial abnormalities, for both functional and aesthetic cases. The inciden...
The goal of this study is to determine if the use of calcium phosphate paste in mandibular lengthening surgery causes more complications as surgical site infections and hardware removal. ...
This study was conducted to compare fracture patterns and operation times after sagittal split osteotomy (SSO) by Hunsuck/Epker approach, performed using a burr or ultrasonic device, with and without ...
A stable occlusion at the time of surgery is considered important for post-surgical stability after orthognathic surgery. The aim of this study was to determine whether skeletal stability after bimaxi...
Correction of maxillofacial skeletal dental deformities often includes surgical interventions in the maxilla and mandible. Le Fort I maxillary osteotomies are performed to correct maxillary horizontal...
An orthodontic-orthognathic patient with obstructive sleep apnea treated with Le Fort I osteotomy advancement and alar cinch suture combined with a muco-musculo-periosteal V-Y closure to minimize nose deformity.
In some severe skeletal Class III patients, mandibular setback surgery using sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) is performed to correct mandibular protrusion. However, in patients diagnosed with ob...
Sagittal sectioning and repositioning of the ramus of the MANDIBLE to correct a mandibular retrusion, MALOCCLUSION, ANGLE CLASS III; and PROGNATHISM. The oblique sectioning line consists of multiple cuts horizontal and vertical to the mandibular ramus.
Transverse sectioning and repositioning of the maxilla. There are three types: Le Fort I osteotomy for maxillary advancement or the treatment of maxillary fractures; Le Fort II osteotomy for the treatment of maxillary fractures; Le Fort III osteotomy for the treatment of maxillary fractures with fracture of one or more facial bones. Le Fort III is often used also to correct craniofacial dysostosis and related facial abnormalities. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p1203 & p662)
Intraoral OSTEOTOMY of the lower jaw usually performed in order to correct MALOCCLUSION.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the SUPERIOR SAGITTAL SINUS or the inferior sagittal sinus. Sagittal sinus thrombosis can result from infections, hematological disorders, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES. Clinical features are primarily related to the increased intracranial pressure causing HEADACHE; NAUSEA; and VOMITING. Severe cases can evolve to SEIZURES or COMA.
Complete severing of the CORPUS CALLOSUM. In humans it is usually performed to treat medically intractable, multifocal EPILEPSY. EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS of split brain preparations are used in research.
