OBJECTIVES Third-generation cephalomedullary nails currently represent the gold standard in the treatment of unstable trochanteric femur fractures. Recently, an extramedullary rotationally stable screw-anchor system (RoSA) has been developed. It was designed to combine the benefits of screw and blade and to improve stability using a locked trochanteric(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of different surgical procedures on soft tissue and skeletal changes. Pre- and postoperative lateral cephalograms of 191 class III patients aged 16–58 years were retrospectively analyzed and divided into three groups according to the surgical therapy they had undergone. Group I had undergone maxillary(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical treatment and complications in patients with zygomatic bone fractures can lead to a significant degree of tissue trauma resulting in common postoperative symptoms and types of pain, facial swelling and functional impairment. Beneficial effects of local cold treatment on postoperative swelling, edema, pain, inflammation, and hemorrhage,(More)
The intention of oral rehabilitation in patients with mandibular defects is an early prosthetic treatment with maximum possible functionality and high accuracy. The present study describes a new computer-aided technique for mandibular reconstruction using a free vascularized iliac flap and simultaneous insertion of dental implants into the flap while it is(More)
BACKGROUND Transanal endoscopic microsurgery as a local therapy option for rectal neoplasms is a tissue-sparing technique that protects the anal sphincter. The present retrospective analysis reports the course of observation after local excision of adenomas and T1 low-risk carcinomas using transanal endoscopic microsurgery. METHODS In a retrospective(More)
BACKGROUND The intention of mandibular reconstruction is to restore the complex anatomy with maximum possible functionality and high accuracy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of computer-assisted surgery in primary mandibular reconstruction with an iliac crest bone flap compared with an osteomyocutaneous fibula flap. MATERIALS AND(More)
PURPOSE Although orbital floor fractures are frequently treated by the Ethisorb patch or polydioxanone foil, the utility of these treatments in extensive fractures remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to examine objectively the extent to which such flexible absorbable materials can restore orbital geometry in comminuted and defect fractures.(More)
BACKGROUND The introduction of computer-assisted surgery was a milestone in functional reconstructions of facial skeletal defects. PATIENTS AND METHODS We compared five computer-assisted and five conventional reconstructions with fibular grafts in the course of a pilot study. A rapid prototyping guide translated the computer-assisted surgery plan into(More)
Surgical treatment and complications in patients with mandibular fractures leads to a significant degree of tissue trauma resulting in common postoperative symptoms and signs of pain, facial swelling, mandible dysfunction and limited mouth opening (trismus). Beneficial effects of local cold treatment on postoperative swelling, oedema, pain, inflammation and(More)
BACKGROUND Computer-assisted surgery plays an increasingly important role in mandibular reconstruction, ensuring the best possible masticatory function and aesthetic outcome. METHODS Twenty patients were randomly assigned to computer-assisted or conventional mandibular reconstruction with vascularized iliac crest bone graft in a prospective study(More)
