The purpose of this study was to evaluate the mechanical behavior of different fixation methods used in bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSRO). Part 1 comprises of the results of the analysis for mandibular advancement, four different fixation configurations of six hole fragmentation mini plates with monocortical screws and lag screws and(More)
We used three-dimensional finite element analysis to compare the biomechanical stability of bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomies fixed by lag screws with linear and triangular configuration, and double or single six-hole miniplates with monocortical screws after set-back operation. The three-dimensional finite element model contained 122,717 elements(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to compare the effects of two drugs on motor performance and analgesic efficacy in a rat model. MATERIAL AND METHODS Rats were randomly divided into four groups as follows: propofol (600 μg/kg/min), dexmedetomidine (1 μg/kg/min), morphine (83 μg/kg/min) and control. The rats were placed on a rotating rod and(More)
The aim of the current study was to comparatively evaluate the mechanical behavior of 3 different fixation methods following various amounts of superior repositioning of mandibular anterior segment. In this study, 3 different rigid fixation configurations comprising double right L, double left L, or double I miniplates with monocortical screws were compared(More)
