In the present study, two biphasic calcium phosphate biomaterials (BCP) with HA/TCP ratios of 50/50 and 30/70 were obtained from a pure HA biomaterial. The biomaterials which showed the same three-dimensional geometry were implanted into corticocancellous costal defects of sheep. In the specimens of all three biomaterials, abundant bone formation, mineral(More)
Grafting of the maxillary sinus is an established treatment modality to provide sufficient bone for the fixation of dental implants. We stated the hypothesis that the porous fluorohydroxyapatitic (FHA) biomaterial FRIOS Algipore could be used as a suitable biomaterial for sinus grafting in severely atrophic maxillae. To investigate the accuracy of our(More)
We report a case of congenital infiltrating lipomatosis of the face (CILF) with right TMJ ankylosis causing asymmetry and reduced mouth opening. The management involved soft tissue debulking combined with a right TMJ arthroplasty and is explained in detail. A review of the relevant literature revealed the rarity of this condition. The diagnosis of CILF(More)
High-precision anatomical facsimile models of the patients' skulls, individually produced by colour stereolithography, were used in the preoperative planning for seven patients with complex maxillofacial tumours. Selectively coloured models facilitated the management of ablative surgery and reconstructive procedures as well. The indicators for preoperative(More)
The present study investigated whether bone regeneration and biomaterial replacement would be improved by loading of biogenous biphasic biomaterial scaffolds (HA/TCP ratio 30/70) with rhBMP-2, and whether the placement of three barrier membranes differing in structure and porosity (prototyped SLA Ti specimens, GORE RESOLUT Adapt specimens, and titanized(More)
Biodegradable osteosynthesis devices can be viewed as addition to, not yet replacement for conventional metal osteosynthesis materials. In a series of 65 patients with zygomatic fractures, a short-term complication/sequelae rate of 22.8% and a long-term complication rate of 9.4% were recorded. Lactosorb plates, panels and screws were the only devices used(More)
Several dietary factors have been associated with the occurrence of cancers of the oral cavity and oropharynx, larynx and oesophagus, collectively called upper aerodigestive tract (UADT) cancers, but the evidence is considered as inconclusive. We hypothesised that the traditional Mediterranean dietary pattern may be more strongly inversely associated with(More)
Experimental and clinical investigations have documented the modulatory role of the globe in the development of the orbit. In cases of absence or early loss of the globe, severe hypoplasia of the orbit and midface has been reported by several authors. Statical conformers and orbital osteotomies have been used to correct the resulting facial asymmetry. When(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of standard anticoagulation and intermittent catheter irrigation on clot formation on intraarterial chemotherapeutical catheters. METHODS Sixteen nonheparinized catheters were placed in the carotid vessels of 10 patients. Ten catheters were perfused with chemotherapeutic drugs; six catheters(More)
The present study investigated the hypothesis that hydroxyapatite (HA), tricalcium phosphate (TCP), and a HA-gel coated on endosseous titanium (Ti) implants by spark discharging (SD) and dip coating would achieve predictable osseointegration without evident bioresorption of the coatings on the long term. A costal sheep model was used for the implantation of(More)
