PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that there is no difference in skeletal stability and material-related complications for titanium or biodegradable fixation when used for various orthognathic surgeries. MATERIALS AND METHODS A systematic and electronic search of several databases with specific keywords, a reference search, and(More)
PURPOSE There is still controversy about whether orthognathic surgery negatively or positively affects temporomandibular disorders (TMDs). The purpose of this study was to determine whether orthognathic surgery has a beneficial or deleterious effect on pre-existing TMDs. MATERIALS AND METHODS A systematic review and meta-analysis were conducted based on(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the recurrence rate (RR) of keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KOTs) in patients who underwent enucleation with or without adjuvant therapy, to patients who underwent decompression with or without residual cystectomy. An extensive search of major databases through PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane CENTRAL was conducted to(More)
PURPOSE This study compared complications between subciliary and transconjunctival approaches to the infraorbital rim/orbital floor, using systematic review and meta-analysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS A systematic review with meta-analysis was conducted according to PRISMA guidelines. An electronic search in PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library was(More)
The study objective was to evaluate, through a meta-analysis, the impact on the pharyngeal airway space (PAS) of different orthognathic surgeries for the treatment of the prognathic mandible. An electronic search of three databases and hand searches were carried out up to December 2014. The inclusion criteria were clinical human studies, including(More)
The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that there is no difference in skeletal stability between bicortical screw and miniplate fixation after mandibular setback surgery with the bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO). A systematic and electronic search of several databases with specific key words, a reference search, and a manual search(More)
The objective of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to test the null hypothesis that there is no difference in postoperative skeletal stability between bicortical screw and monocortical plate fixation after mandibular advancement surgery with bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSO). A comprehensive search of major(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to identify, through meta-analysis, whether patients who require orthognathic surgery have a higher prevalence of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) than controls, both before treatment and after. MATERIAL AND METHODS A systematic review and meta-analysis were conducted based on PRISMA guidelines, to address the study(More)
PURPOSE Among the different surgical treatments for keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KOTs), there is no single method associated with a zero recurrence rate (RR). Thus, this study aimed to seek the best surgical treatment with the least RR using a weighted event rated meta-analysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS To address our study purpose, a systematic review(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to identify whether there is scientific evidence to support excision of the overlying mucosa (EOM) in conjunction with cyst enucleation to decrease the recurrence rate (RR) of keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KOTs). MATERIALS AND METHODS A systematic review with meta-analysis conforming to the Preferred Reporting(More)
