Can palatal splint improve stability of segmental Le Fort I osteotomies?
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of a palatal splint on stability in multi-segment maxillary osteotomies. Setting and Sample Population: Retrospective series of fifty-one adult patients, ...
Inicial nasal mucosa detachment using piezoelectric device in the Le Fort I osteotomy: A technical note
In maxillary Le Fort I type osteotomy the detachment of the nasal mucosa should be done carefully. Piezoelectric surgery contributed much to increase the safety of osteotomies, despite the initial advantage of minimizing ...
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 ...
The use of a bite fork to help mobilize the maxilla after downfracture during the Le Fort I osteotomy: a technical note
Introduction The Le Fort I osteotomy is indicated to reposition the maxilla in the surgical correction of dentofacial deformities. Although it is a known surgical step, like any surgical procedure, it can have complications ...
Segmental osteotomy with interpositional bone grafting in the posterior maxillary region
(Churchill LivingstoneEdinburghEscócia, 2012)
Segmental osteotomy for the correction of a malpositioned single implant: an 8-year follow-up
This case report is an 8-year follow-up of a malpositioned single implant, which was treated with segmental osteotomy, to confirm the treatment's characteristics, indications, and advantages. Deep buccal positioning of an ...
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, ...
Sagittal Mandibular Osteotomy for Removal of Intraosseous Lesion
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2014-05-01)
The ramus sagittal split osteotomy or mandibular body is an established technique for correction of dentofacial deformities but can have an accurate indication in cases requiring surgical access to remove lesions or more ...
Effects of lateral osteotomy on surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion
This study aimed to assess the potential effects of two different osteotomy designs of the maxillary lateral wall on dental and skeletal changes after surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion (SARME). Thirty adult ...
New treatment for frontal sinus hypertrophy
A new treatment of frontal sinus hypertrophy is described. The anterior wall is removed, inverted, and attached again. The resulting depression is filled with bone dust. Details are discussed, and a case is presented.
