Facial asymmetry is one of the commonest facial anomalies, with reported incidence as high as 34%. Hemifacial microsomia (HFM) has an incidence of 1 in every 4000-5600 children and is one of the commonest causes of facial asymmetry. The standard treatment of HFM is orthognathic surgery by bilateral saggital split osteotomy (BSSO) or distraction osteogenesis(More)
AIM The aim is to review the English literature for post-traumatic superolateral dislocation of mandibular condyle (SDMC),discuss their dynamics and clinical management and to propose to modify the existing classification of SDMC. PATIENTS AND METHODS A literature search was carried at Pubmed, Sciencedirect, Google and references from reported articles(More)
INTRODUCTION The goal in treating Hemifacial microsomia (HFM) is to improve facial symmetry, allow functional jaw movement, obtain stable occlusion, and achieve patient satisfaction. This study was planned with an aim to assess the outcome of simultaneous maxillomandibular distraction osteogenesis in hemifacial microsomia. MATERIAL & METHODS Seven(More)

INTRODUCTION In cases of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis, interposition arthroplasty allows return of functional jaw movements. In order to improve the facial appearance, distraction osteogenesis is the treatment of choice, and may be timed either as a pre-arthroplastic, simultaneous or post-arthroplastic procedure. This study was planned to compare(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed with the aim to assess the efficiency of hydroxyapatite/collagen (HA/Col) bio-scaffold with bone marrow aspirate (BMA) to reconstruct mandibular condyle in patients with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seven pediatric patients with TMJ ankylosis, who visited our outpatient clinic and whose(More)
