In a patient with progressive ophthalmological problems, including uncontrolled intraocular pressure related to a cavernous sinus dural arteriovenous fistula, urgent intervention may be necessary to prevent permanent visual loss. We report a case in which inadequate transarterial embolisation and lack of access for transvenous catheterisation, including a(More)
In a computed tomographic study, 56 patients with facial defects were examined to assess the availability of bone for extraoral Brånemark implants (3 or 4 mm long, 3.75 mm diameter) to bear facial prostheses. Bone depths were determined in the auriculotemporal (2-8 mm), infraorbital (0-10 mm), lateroorbital (8-14 mm), supraorbital (1-14 mm) and medioorbital(More)
The surgical technique, indications, and results of the infrahyoid muscle flap are presented. This flap is fed by the superior thyroid vessels and innervated by the ansa cervicalis. The flap is indicated in case of medium-sized defects in the floor of the mouth, the tongue, the buccal mucosa, and the lateral pharyngeal wall. The advantages of the technique(More)
Contemporary computer-assisted surgery systems more and more allow for virtual simulation of even complex surgical procedures with increasingly realistic predictions. Preoperative workflows are established and different commercially software solutions are available. Potential and feasibility of virtual craniomaxillofacial surgery as an additional planning(More)
Transpalatal distraction has been established as a technique for surgical assisted rapid palatal/maxillary expansion (SARPE/SARME) in order to correct transverse maxillary deficiency. From 2007 until 2013 bone borne transpalatal distraction devices have been inserted in 50 patients affected by transverse maxillary deficiency and transpalatal distraction has(More)
Patients who have undergone enucleation of the eye can be treated with glass eye prostheses, provided retention is adequate. Inadequate retention due to contraction of the conjunctival mucosa is a common problem which frequently affects the lower fornix first. This can be corrected using a free full-thickness buccal mucosa graft. Indications, operative(More)
OBJECTIVE This clinical study examined the quality of life of face-disabled patients who had received a facial prosthesis. PATIENTS AND METHODS The examination of the 58 patients was performed using different questionnaires. For the evaluation of the subjective health-related quality of life an instrument constructed by the WHO was used (WHOQOQL-Bref).(More)
INTRODUCTION Damage to dentoalveolar structures related to general anaesthesia is a well-known complication and may represent a relevant morbidity for affected patients. Central documentation of perioperative dentoalveolar injuries was performed since 1990 in the Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine in cooperation with the Department of(More)
The unusual case of a mandibular arteriovenous malformation in a patient with severe hemophilia A and hepatitis C is reported. Supplementary substitution of various coagulation factors allowed direct puncture and intralesional injection of a liquid adhesive, resulting in complete anatomic and clinical cure without peri- or postoperative bleeding.(More)
