In vitro biomechanical evaluation of sagittal split osteotomy fixation with a specifically designed miniplate
Recent studies have evaluated many methods of internal fixation for sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO), aiming to increase stability of the bone segments while minimizing condylar displacement. The purpose of this study ...
Lingual Short Split: A Bilateral Sagittal Split Osteotomy Technique Modification
The technique of sagittal split osteotomy of the mandibular ramus is an established technique that has been evolving over the years, with significant improvements regarding stability, better bone contact between the segments, ...
In vitro biomechanical comparison of six different fixation methods following 5-mm sagittal split advancement osteotomies
The sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) is a surgical technique used widely to treat many congenital and acquired mandibular discrepancies. Stabilization of the osteotomy site and the potential for skeletal relapse after ...
Comparison of the Stability of Mandibular Sagittal Osteotomy Fixation between Two Types of Titanium Miniplates: A Biomechanical Study in Sheep Mandibles
(Thieme Medical Publ Inc, 2018-06-01)
This study aimed to compare the biomechanical stability of the fixation of mandibular sagittal split osteotomy of the ramus by two types of titanium miniplates in sheep mandibles. Seven preserved sheep mandibles with similar ...
Mechanical evaluation of six techniques for stable fixation of the sagittal split osteotomy after counterclockwise mandibular advancement
We have evaluated the resistance to displacement of six stable methods of fixation of a sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) in the mandibular advancement with counterclockwise rotation. We tested 60 synthetic hemimandibles ...
