A longitudinal study of TMJ sounds prior to and after combined orthodontic-orthognathic surgical procedures was carried out. The relative frequency of such sounds two days prior to operation (T0) and three months (T1), eight months (T2), 14.5 months (T3), and 25.5 months (T4) postoperatively remained--treatment-independently--largely unchanged.

A group (n = 20) of young, clinically symptom-free subjects (Helkimo Di = 0) was compared with a group (n = 22) of TMJ-patients (Di greater than 2) regarding the frequency and the amount of axiographic findings of malfunction. 5 different mandibular movements were monitored using the SAS-system with tenfold magnification in 2 planes of recording. An(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the within- and between-session reliability of axiographic tracings. 22 patients with different degrees of TMJ dysfunction were examined using the SAS system. Within one and between two axiographies, respectively, the most frequent evaluation according to an index assignment was "very good". However, when tracings(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the differences in the electronic axiographic tracings within one axiographic examination and the differences between two axiographies, with respect to the reliability of their length, curvature and inclination values. 22 patients with varying degrees of TMJ dysfunction were examined using the SAS system after(More)
