Several inorganic materials have been shown previously to hold some osteogenic capacity. The purpose of this study is to compare the bone-forming abilities of hydroxyapatite ceramic, high-density porous polyethylene, and bone collagen within the periosteal island flap of rabbit tibia using histological and biochemical analysis. With this goal, four discrete(More)
Gardner syndrome, a variant of familial adenomatous polyposis, is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by gastrointestinal polyps that develop in the colon as well as in the stomach and upper intestine (duodenum), multiple osteomas, and skin and soft tissue tumors. Cutaneous findings include epidermoid cysts, desmoid tumors, and other benign tumors.(More)
In this study, 500 frontal and supraorbital transcranial passages were studied in 50 cadavers and 200 crania of 500 samples. One hundred six specimens had a frontal foramen (notch), and all the samples had a supraorbital foramen (notch). The frontal passage was a foramen in 7 samples and a notch in 99 samples. As for the supraorbital passage, it was found(More)
The aim of this study was to classify the buccal branches of the facial nerve in relation to the parotid duct and its relevance to surgical procedures such as rhytidectomy and parotid gland surgery. In this study, 30 cadaver heads (60 specimens) were dissected. The vertical and horizontal relationships between the buccal branches of the facial nerve and(More)
UNLABELLED Descriptions of superficial anatomic landmarks for the identification of the zygomatic branches of the facial nerve, and their relevance for plastic surgery, are lacking in the literature. This paper provides such a description and discusses its relevance to facial surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-six specimens, including the parotid(More)
Fibrous dysplasia is a nonneoplastic developmental disease of osseous tissue. It is a lesion of unknown etiology, uncertain pathogenesis, and diverse histopathology. In this series of 16 patients with fibrous dysplasia of the craniomaxillofacial bones, the disease was generally monostotic and most commonly maxillary in location. Two patients demonstrated(More)
Bone grafting plays an important role in the dental rehabilitation of patients with alveolar cleft. During the period between 1993 and 2001, 12 patients with alveolar clefts have been treated in our clinic. Cancellous iliac bone grafts were used in all 12 patients. Seven patients had left and five patients had right complete unilateral cleft lip and(More)
In this current study, the clinical data and postoperative follow-up findings of 118 patients with a primary lower lip carcinoma who were treated between 1983 and 1999 in the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery are presented. Medical records were reviewed retrospectively and data were collected concerning age, gender, followup period, location(More)
Creation of alternative vascular conduits has been one of the most challenging subjects in the history of vascular surgery. In the past, afferent arteriovenous fistulas have been used by vascular surgeons to rescue ischaemic extremities. We have undertaken a comprehensive investigation to characterize arterialization of the venous system at different levels(More)
We have developed a new and simplified injection technique based on a mixture of latex and lead oxide. This injection technique is unique in its possession of both color and radio-opacity. We have developed and refined this methodology in rats, and have demonstrated it to possess superior qualities of injectability. Depiction of small vessels is highly(More)
