The study aimed to calculate the location and intensity of the maximum stress fields on the fixation plates and surrounding maxilla following Le Fort I osteotomies after advancement procedures using three-dimensional finite element analysis. The models were generated using skull CT scan data. Le Fort I osteotomy simulations were made and two separate(More)
Ankylosis of temporomandibular joint is a condition in which partial or complete immobilization of mandible occurs because of fusion between mandibular condyle and skull base. This condition can be treated orthodontically, surgically, or therapeutically or by prosthodontic rehabilitation. A 10-year-old female patient presented to the Department of Oral and(More)
The aim of the second part of this study was to evaluate the mechanical behaviour of 2- versus 4-plate fixation and bony structures after Le Fort I impaction surgeries using three-dimensional finite element analysis (3D-FEA). Two 3D-FEA models were created to fixate the impacted maxilla at the Le Fort I level as 2-plate fixation at the piriform rims (IMP-2(More)
Chondrosarcomas are the malignant cartilagenous tumors and they are seen rarely in the head and neck area. They are usually slow growing lesions. The head and neck chondrosarcomas may show an aggressive course and the occurrence of this malignant cartilagenous tumor in the parapharyngeal space is only a few. They are mostly located in relation with jaw(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the mechanical behavior of different fixation methods used in bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSRO). Part 1 comprises of the results of the analysis for mandibular advancement, four different fixation configurations of six hole fragmentation mini plates with monocortical screws and lag screws and(More)
Direct or indirect trauma to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) may cause several injuries such as fibrous adhesion, ankylosis and fracture. The aim of this study was to examine and compare the histological changes of TMJ and adjacent soft tissue after direct or indirect trauma to TMJ. In this study, a total of 35 healthy young adult guinea pigs were exposed(More)
We used three-dimensional finite element analysis to compare the biomechanical stability of bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomies fixed by lag screws with linear and triangular configuration, and double or single six-hole miniplates with monocortical screws after set-back operation. The three-dimensional finite element model contained 122,717 elements(More)
Having studied the effect of maxillary advancement and maxillary impaction in parts 1 and 2 of this research, the purpose of this study was to investigate the biomechanical behavior of different fixation models in inferiorly and anteriorly repositioned maxilla following Le Fort I osteotomy. Two separate three-dimensional finite element models, simulating(More)
