This review summarizes current knowledge and experience with piezosurgery, a promising, meticulous and soft tissue-sparing system for bone cutting, based on ultrasonic microvibrations. The main advantages of piezosurgery include soft tissue protection, optimal visibility in the surgical field, decreased blood loss, less vibration and noise, increased(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed (1) to determine whether scanner arm rotation causes significant movement of the head restraint and (2) to measure patient movement and its variation during the scan. STUDY DESIGN The iCAT scanner and a high-speed camera were used. The 40 patients were divided into 2 groups: the open-eyed group and the blindfolded group. (More)
Orthognathic surgery has varying effects on respiratory parameters. The authors undertook a prospective study of patients requiring mandibular advancement, mandibular setback and maxillary Le Fort I advancement, and surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion (SARME). Breathing parameters were monitored in a sleep laboratory the night before the operation(More)
Stem cells biology is one of the most frequent topic of physiological research of today. Spinal fusion represents common bone biology challenge. It is the indicator of osteoinduction and new bone formation on ectopic model. The purpose of this study was to establish a simple model of spinal fusion based on a rat model including verification of the possible(More)
This retrospective non-randomized 10-year follow-up study compared 147 patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the oral cavity requiring hemimandibulectomy, treated by surgical resection, therapeutic neck dissection and radiotherapy. The 5-year survival rates were compared related to localization, size of the tumour, infiltration of locoregional(More)
Stability of bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) is an important goal for every surgeon. In the article factors influencing stability of the surgery result are reviewed. Special emphasis is given to different types of fixation of bone fragments. Their advantages and disadvantages in clinical use are discussed. Relapse after BSSO is usually classified(More)
Bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) aims to correct congenital or acquired mandibular abnormities. Temporary or permanent neurosensory disturbance is the most frequent complication of BSSO. To evaluate the influence of IAN handling during osteotomy, the authors undertook a prospective study in 290 patients who underwent BSSO. The occurrence and(More)
We introduce a hypothesis that obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is primarily caused by an inherited reduced adaptability of upper airway striated muscles such that they cannot maintain patency when there is reduced consciousness (sleep). This reduced ability is caused by a deficiency of the genes for specific myosin heavy chain (MHC) proteins, which(More)
Piezosurgery is a promising meticulous system for bone cutting, based on ultrasound microvibrations. It is thought that the impact of piezosurgery on the integrity of soft tissue is generally low, but it has not been examined critically. The authors undertook an experimental study to evaluate the brain tissue response to skull bone removal using(More)
Bilateral sagittal split osteotomy of the mandible with counterclockwise rotation of the occlusal plane alone has traditionally been considered the least stable treatment method. Two miniplates on each side of the osteotomy may resolve this problem. The authors compared early vertical and transverse stability of a simple mandibular advancement (group A),(More)
