The purpose of this study was to evaluate the craniofacial effects of thalassaemia major and involved a cephalometric analysis of two samples, consisting of 30 thalassaemic patients and 30 control cases. Differences between the groups were tested by Variance analysis (two factors completely randomized design). It was found that thalassaemia major had(More)
A case of delayed differentiation and/or calcification, that is, development, followed by accelerated growth of the maxillary second premolars is presented. This condition was accompanied by the congenital absence of mandibular second premolars even though maxillary and mandibular third molar germs were present. The case was followed over a five-year(More)
Taking the presence of an interplay between the vertical and sagittal components of craniofacial development into consideration, the beneficial therapeutic potential impacts of controlling vertical development on the correction of Class II discrepancies has been previously investigated. In the present study, a modified maxillary orthopaedic splint combined(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between head posture and craniofacial morphology in nonsyndromic cleft lip and palate children with oronasal fistula. PATIENTS A total of 31 cleft lip and palate patients with a mean skeletal age of 7.59 (+/-2.11) years were involved. Fifteen had complete unilateral cleft lip and palate, 13 had(More)
Craniomandibular dysfunction, mandibular range of motion and occlusal contacts subsequent to surgical-orthodontic treatment were studied in 20 adults with Le Fort I impaction and/or advancement, 34 with vertical ramus setback, 12 with sagittal split advancement and 16 with Le Fort I impaction, and/or advancement and bilateral vertical ramus setback.
