PURPOSE To investigate changes in the masseter muscle following osteotomy of the prominent mandibular angle using real-time 3-dimensional (3D) ultrasonography, and to supply guidance for resection of the mandibular angle. MATERIALS AND METHODS Real-time 3D ultrasonography was applied pre- and postoperatively (over a 6-month follow-up period) to 10(More)
Parry-Romberg syndrome is characterized by a progressive hemifacial atrophy involving the skin, subcutaneous tissue, and underlying bone structures. The aim of plastic surgical treatment is to restore a harmonious and symmetrical appearance to facial deficits.

The three-dimensional (3-D) Titanium miniplate system is one of the newest internal rigid fixation for the maxillo-mandibular surgery in recent years. The geometry of the plate assures a good stability in the three-dimensions of the fracture sits. Thirty patients suffering from maxillo-mandibular fractures had been operated on using the 3-D Titanium(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the surgical reconstruction for correction of enophthalmos deformity caused by orbital blow-out fractures. METHODS From December 1996 to March 2004, 56 cases of enophthalmos deformity caused by orbital blow-out fracture were repaired. There were 37 cases diplopia, 35 cases with worsened visual acuity than pre-trauma. Typical sub-ciliary(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the application of three-dimensional CT(3D-CT) in the treatment of oblique facial clefts with mandibular outer cortex, including the surgical design and results assessment. METHODS From Jan. 2003 to Dec. 2013, 22 cases with oblique facial cleft, who underwent mandibular outer cortex onlay bone graft were retrospectively studied.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of the anticoagulants on PRP quality, so as to clarify the appropriate anticoagulant used in PRP production. METHODS The microstructure change of platelets collected via heparin, citrate, acid citrate dextrose (ACD) and citrate-theophylline-adenosine-dipyridamole ( CTAD) was observed by TEM following time course. The(More)
