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 ...
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.
In vitro comparison of 1.5 mm vs. 2.0 mm screws for fixation in the sagittal split osteotomy
(Churchill Livingstone, 2011-12-01)
Purpose: Numerous "in vitro" investigations have been conducted to evaluate the role of screw size and pattern in determining optimal resistance to deformation, often these have been controversial. The aim of this study ...
Excision of an atypical case of palatal bone exostosis: a case report.
Bone exostosis has long been described in the literature, appearing in most cases as a torus palatinus or mandibularis. These two variations are relatively common and affect approximately 30% of the world's population. ...
The Role of Osteotomy for the Treatment of PCL Injuries
Purpose of Review The purposes of this review are to (1) describe the anatomic and biomechanical rationale for high tibial osteotomy (HTO) in the setting of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) deficiency, (2) review the ...
Two Surgical Approaches to Fracture Malunion Repair
(Assoc Avian Veterinarians, 2008-12-01)
Two birds were presented with malunion fractures. The first was a young toco toucan (Ramphastos toco) with malunion of the tarsometatarsus that was treated by an opening-corrective osteotomy and an acrylic-pin external ...
Dynamics of bone healing after osteotomy with piezosurgery or conventional drilling - histomorphometrical, immunohistochemical, and molecular analysis
Background: Piezosurgery is an osteotomy system used in medical and dental surgery. Many studies have proven clinical advantages of piezosurgery in terms of quality of cut, maneuverability, ease of use, and safety. However, ...
Incidence of Maxillary Sinusitis Following Le Fort I Osteotomy: Clinical, Radiographic, and Endoscopic Study
(W B Saunders Co-elsevier Inc, 2011-02-01)
Purpose: The correction of maxillomandibular deformities may require maxillary osteotomy procedures that usually present low rates of postoperative complications, such as maxillary sinusitis. The present study evaluated ...
Estudio digital radiográfico y densitométrico en mandíbulas de cerdos sometidos a osteotomía con alta y baja velocidad, con refrigeración líquida
The influence of the type of rotary cutting instrument on bone repair after osteotomy in swine jaw, was evaluated using digital and densitometric radiographic examinations, at controlled times. Two cross-sectional dissections ...
Biomechanical in vitro evaluation of three stable internal fixation techniques used in sagittal osteotomy of the mandibular ramus: a study in sheep mandibles
(Universidade de São Paulo (USP), Faculdade de Odontologia de Bauru, 2012-07-01)
Among the osteotomies performed in orthognathic surgery, the sagittal osteotomy of the mandibular ramus (SOMR) is the most common, allowing a great range of movements and stable internal fixation (SIF), therefore eliminating ...
