An In Vitro Evaluation of Rigid Internal Fixation Techniques for Sagittal Split Ramus Osteotomies: Setback Surgery
(W B Saunders Co-Elsevier IncPhiladelphia, 2012)
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 ...
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 ...
Comparison of five different fixation techniques of sagittal split ramus osteotomy using three-dimensional finite elements analysis
(Churchill LivingstoneEdinburghEscócia, 2012)
Effect of the number of screws on the stability of locking mandibular reconstruction plates
Atrophic mandible fractures are frequently a challenge to stabilize. This study evaluated, through mechanical testing in vitro, the number of locking screws that is sufficient to withstand loading when applied with a locking ...
Fixation of autogenous bone grafts with ethyl-cyanoacrylate glue or titanium screws in the calvaria of rabbits
(Churchill Livingstone, 2009-02-01)
This study compared the fixation of autogenous onlay bone grafts with cyanoacrylate glue (Super Bonder) and with titanium screws. Twenty rabbits underwent bilateral parietal ostectomies. Bone segments were fixed anteriorly ...
Metacarpophalangeal and interphalangeal joint arthrodesis: a comparative study between tension band and compression screw fixation
(Sage Publications, 2015)
A retrospective, comparative cohort study was performed of metacarpophalangeal or proximal interphalangeal joint arthrodesis with either tension band (n = 28) or compression (Acutrak Mini) screw (n = 29) methods. We compared ...
Accuracy of a dynamic surgical guidance probe for screw insertion in the cervical spine: a cadaveric study
(Springer Verlag, 2017)
© 2016, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Study design: A fresh frozen cadaver study was conducted. Objective: To report the cortical breach rate using the dynamic surgical guidance (DSG) probe versus traditional freehand ...
