To date, reperfusion with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) remains the gold standard treatment for ischemic stroke. However, when tPA is given beyond 4.5 hours of stroke onset, deleterious effects of the drug ensue, especially, hemorrhagic transformation (HT), which causes the most significant morbidity and mortality in stroke patients. An important(More)
Patients suffering from facial paralysis are on the hazard of disfigurement and loss of vision due to loss of blink function. Functional-electrical stimulation (FES) is one possible way of restoring blink and other functions in these patients. A blink restoration system for uni-lateral facial paralyzed patients is described in this paper. The system(More)
OBJECTIVE Bone sawing or cutting is widely used for bone removal processes in bone surgery. It is an essential skill that surgeons should execute with a high level of experience and sensitive force perception. Surgical training simulators, with virtual and haptic feedback functions, can offer a safe, repeatable and cost-effective alternative to traditional(More)
INTRODUCTION The present study was aimed to characterize the clinicopathological, immunohistochemical features and treatment outcomes of primary oral and maxillofacial liposarcomas by presenting the experience over a 16-year period at a tertiary referral Chinese institution for head neck cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS This retrospective clinical study(More)
This paper investigates the effect of fiducials configuration on target registration error (TRE) and test the accuracy of theoretical model of TRE prediction in image-guided cranio-maxillofacial surgery. The skull specimen is prepared with 20 titanium microscrews placed at defined locations and scanned with a 64-slice spiral computed tomography unit. These(More)
Numerous problems regarding craniomaxillofacial navigation surgery are not well understood. In this study, we performed a double-center clinical study to quantitatively evaluate the characteristics of our navigation system and experience in craniomaxillofacial navigation surgery. Fifty-six patients with craniomaxillofacial disease were included and randomly(More)
BACKGROUND A method for assessing dental maturity in different populations was first developed in 1973 by Demirjian and has been widely used and accepted since then. While the accuracy for evaluating dental age using Demirjian's method compared to children's chronological age has been extensively studied in recent years, the results currently available(More)
BACKGROUND Craniomaxillofacial fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a benign bone lesion characterized by facial disfigurement and functional impairment. The aim of this study was to characterize the epidemiological and clinical features of craniomaxillofacial FD by presenting data from a representative Chinese population during a 15-year period (1994-2009).
