As part of the LBA-SMOCC (Large-Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Ama-zonia – Smoke, Aerosols, Clouds, Rainfall, and Climate) 2002 campaign, we studied the emission of carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO 2), and aerosol particles from Amazonian deforestation fires using an instrumented aircraft. Emission ratios for 5 aerosol number (CN) relative(More)
Twenty-one patients who underwent bilateral sagittal split osteotomies using rigid fixation were evaluated by neurosensory testing. Neurosensory tests included light touch (LT), brush stroke direction (BSD), two-point discrimination (2-P), and temperature (T). Tests were conducted using the two-alternate forced choice method. The density of neurosensory(More)
In order to assess the degree of similarity of the infraorbital nerve and inferior alveolar nerve, thirty subjects with no history of sensory injury were examined by a battery of neurosensory tests including: light touch, brush stroke direction, two-point discrimination, and thermal disk temperature assessment. In a matched sample experimental design, the(More)
Fifty patients who had undergone Le Fort I maxillary osteotomies were studied. Cephalograms were available preoperatively and at least 6 months postoperatively. Soft-tissue analysis of the nasal profile was done employing three angles commonly used in the photometric analysis performed for rhinoplasty: nasal tip projection angle, columellar angle, and(More)
Augmentation with malar implants has traditionally relied on fixation techniques such as creation of a precise pocket, external taping, and transcutaneous fixation techniques with bolsters. We present an alternate technique that fixates the implants to the rigid facial skeleton rather than to the dynamic active facial soft tissues. To avoid the use of(More)
Our technique modifications include a systematic preauricular approach to the zygomatic arch and preservation of the temporal fat pad, which is left undisturbed. The preauricular extension permits greater access along the zygomatic arch, which may additionally reduce the risk of injury to the frontal branch of the facial nerve. Leaving the temporal fat pad(More)
