We studied the influence of a dental occlusion perturbation on postural control. The tests were performed in three dental occlusion conditions: (Rest Position: no dental contact, Maximal Intercuspal Occlusion: maximal dental contact, and Thwarted Laterality Occlusion: simulation of a dental malocclusion) and four postural conditions: static (stable(More)
Lingual nerve damage is one of the most common complications of lower third molar removal. However evaluation of the factor involved in these lesions is difficult since most previous series are heterogeneous. The purpose of this prospective randomized study was to ascertain the impact of lingual nerve protection in a homogeneous series including only(More)
tions, 3) low levels of platelets (<100 × 10 9 /L) and 4) increased capillary permeability (5). Our patient fulfi lled all 4 criteria. Few cases of reported DHF fulfi ll criterion 3 due to the short duration of severe thrombocytopenia in mild clinical forms (8). Increased vascular permeability was shown in our patient by the peritoneal and bilateral pleural(More)
The anatomical and physiological relation between temporal muscle and temporomandibular joint are well-knowed. The versatility of the temporo muscle-fascia flap must be stressed. The posterior temporal flap is a simply, reliable procedure, with low morbidity. This technique is probably the procedure of choice in discal replacement and in interposition(More)
We report a new cephalometric method for profile analysis, which uses strictly exobasicranial landmarks: 13 anatomic points, 9 bone points and 4 skin points. The analysis is based on phylogenetic, ontogenetic, anatomic and biomechanical data. The face is comprised between a new exobasicranial plane represented by the Nasion-Glenion (Na-Gl) and the classical(More)
We report a new cephalometric method for profile analysis, which uses strictly exobasicranial landmarks: 13 anatomic points, 9 bone points and 4 skin points. The analysis is based on phylogenetic, ontogenetic, anatomic and biomechanical data. Phylogenetic analysis reveals that the occipital plate belongs more to the cranial vault than the base of the skull.(More)
Attributing dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) to whiplash injury is a difficult problem to solve. TMJ disorders do not seem to be secondary to direct articular trauma but rather caused by a postural disorder of the cervical spine. Occlusal disorders and stress further complicate the picture. Four clinical cases illustrate a new hypothetical(More)
Through a revision of the classical anatomy of the exocranial skull base, the authors present of a new exobasicranial plan in cephalometry, the Nasion-Glenion (or Porion plane). The median part of the base devoted to ventilation goes from the Nasion to the spheno-occipital synchondrosis, joining two essentially cartilaginous sites. The lateral parts, with(More)
Posterior displacement of the temporo-mandibular joint disk is exceptional. The most typical clinical sign is sudden onset unilateral molar open bite. This lateral open bite is accompanied by a sensation of an intra-articular foreign body and more rarely by painful episodes. The joint sounds are not characteristic. Mouth opening is slightly limited. There(More)
