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)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of different surgical procedures on soft tissue and skeletal changes. PATIENTS AND METHODS 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(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 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)
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 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)
PURPOSE In most cases, the removal of third molars leads to a significant degree of tissue trauma, resulting in common postoperative symptoms and signs of pain, facial swelling, dysfunction, and limited mouth opening (trismus). The beneficial effects of cold treatment on postoperative swelling, edema, pain, and inflammation, as well as the reduction in(More)
To identify factors that minimise damage during the drilling of sites for dental implants, we reviewed published papers on the amount of heat that is generated. We systematically searched English language studies published between January 2000 and February 2014 on MEDLINE/PubMed and found 41 articles, of which 27 related to an increase in temperature during(More)
PURPOSE Surgical techniques affect primary implant stability, which is required for osseointegration. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of full-guided surgery on the dimension of implant site in relation to primary stability. MATERIALS AND METHODS After implant site preparation in artificial bone by full-guided (FG) or non-guided (NG)(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the contact surface area (CSA) between bony segments after performing 4 different osteotomy techniques for genioplasty. STUDY DESIGN Virtual genioplasties were done in terms of sliding or chin-shield genioplasty and 1- or 2-tiered genioplasty on computed tomography (CT) data from 42 patients. Advancement or(More)
