A treatment algorithm for patients with large skull bone defects and first results.
From 2004 until today twelve consecutive patients have been operated on successfully according to this treatment plan and the treatment algorithm is proved to be reliable. Expand
Surgical and prosthetic reconsiderations in patients with maxillectomy.
The purpose of this study was to establish and evaluate new possibilities for rehabilitation of patients with obturator prosthesis who had undergone partial or total maxillectomy because of tumourExpand
Cranioplasty with customized titanium and PEEK implants in a mechanical stress model.
It seems that the mechanical properties of PEEK could provide better protection when used for cranioplasty in patients after craniectomy if reconstruction with autogenous bone is not possible. Expand
Pilot study of modification of the bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) in pig mandibles.
The additional osteotomy facilitates the BSSO technique and it reduces the likelihood of bad splits and damage to the inferior alveolar nerve in pig mandibles. Expand
Additive manufacturing for microvascular reconstruction of the mandible in 20 patients.
Evaluated model mandibles made preoperatively by additive manufacturing were used to prebend reconstruction plates prior to mandibular resection and reconstruction with microvascular bony flaps, which reduces the operating time. Expand
Interval cranioplasty with patient-specific implants and autogenous bone grafts--success and cost analysis.
High success rates and reliability of PSIs may change the treatment strategy in patients undergoing interval cranioplasty, and the hospital stay was shorter in the PSI group. Expand
Patient-Specific Implants Compared With Stored Bone Grafts for Patients With Interval Cranioplasty
In patients with interval cranioplasty who have a higher risk for complication or failure, the use of patient-specific implants (PSIs) should be the treatment of choice. Expand
Guided bone regeneration: dynamic procedures versus static shielding in an animal model.
This study compared dynamic periosteal elevation with static shielding in an animal experiment and found no significant differences regarding bone quantity or quality between the two techniques. Expand
Prospective comparison of perioperative antibiotic management protocols in oncological head and neck surgery.
Based on findings of the study, an extended postoperative antibiotic prophylaxis is recommended for patients undergoing major oncological head and neck surgery. Expand
The accuracy of computer-assisted primary mandibular reconstruction with vascularized bone flaps: iliac crest bone flap versus osteomyocutaneous fibula flap
Virtual surgical planning is an effective method for mandibular reconstruction with vascularized bone flaps, and can help to restore the anatomy of the mandible with high accuracy in position and shape. Expand
