INTRODUCTION The aim of this controlled study was to analyze the degree and localization of 3-dimensional (3D) facial asymmetry in adult patients with cleft lip and palate (CLP) compared with a control group and its impact on the visual perception of faces. METHODS The degree of 3D asymmetry was analyzed with a novel method without landmarks in 18 adults(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of facial asymmetry on how an adult population with unilateral cleft lip and palate (CLP) perceived themselves and were perceived by others. 3D facial data of 30 adult patients with cleft lip and palate (CLP) was scanned and standardized extra- and intraoral photographs were taken. The measured degree(More)
The aim of this study was to develop a reliable threedimensional (3D) analysis of facial soft tissues. We determined the mean sagittal 3D values and relationships between sagittal skeletal parameters, and digitally recorded 3D soft tissue parameters. A total of 100 adult patients (nª = 53, nº = 47) of Caucasian ethnic origin were included in this study.(More)
Several investigations have analysed the frequency of sella turcica anomalies in patients with severe craniofacial deviations. Until now, there have been no studies concerning the prevalence of sella turcica bridging in homogenous groups of patients. Therefore, the aims of this controlled study were to analyse the prevalence of sella turcica bridging and(More)
Tooth eruption is a complex developmental process requiring coordinated navigation through alveolar bone and oral epithelium. Primary failure of tooth eruption (PFE) is associated with several syndromes primarily affecting skeletal development, but it is also known as a nonsyndromic autosomal-dominant condition. Teeth in the posterior quadrants of the upper(More)
OBJECTIVE To present a new orthopedic method for treatment of infants with Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) and upper airway obstruction (UAO) as an alternative to other established nonsurgical and surgical techniques such as positioning, nasopharyngeal or endotracheal intubation, tongue-lip adhesion, extension, distraction, or tracheostomy. DESIGN Review of(More)
The objective of this study was to analyze the reliability of a landmark-independent method for determining the facial symmetry plane and degree of asymmetry based on three-dimensional data from the facial surface from two sets of recordings, one performed consecutively and one performed on different days. We used an optical 3D-sensor to obtain the facial(More)
Although there is principal agreement that increased facial asymmetry is associated with decreased facial attractiveness, there are no studies analysing face perception in patients with a unilateral cleft lip and palate (CLP) (uCLP) compared to orthognathic Class III patients. To this end, three-dimensional (3D) data on the faces of 30 adults with a(More)
Unilateral positional plagiocephaly is the most common deformity of the head in infants. As part of a prospective controlled clinical study, the pathomorphology of the positional plagiocephaly in early infancy was examined. The goal was to use noninvasive three-dimensional (3D) imaging to generate, for the first time ever, a standard database of infants(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the immediate, long-term, and carry-over effects of nasopharyngoscopic biofeedback therapy in patients with cleft palate who exhibit velopharyngeal dysfunction (VPD). DESIGN Pre- versus posttreatment and follow-up comparisons. SETTING Cleft palate center of the Heidelberg University Hospital, Heidelberg, Germany. SUBJECTS Eleven(More)
