Antiresorptive agent-related osteonecrosis of the jaw results in appreciable morbidity in affected patients. Nowadays many physicians prescribe an antiangiogenic agent for the management of malignant metastases. Everolimus is a serine-threonine kinase that acts as an inhibitor of mammalian target of rapamycin, which results in reduced growth of cells,(More)
This study proposes a system for classifying facial asymmetry with accompanying mandibular prognathism to facilitate choice of surgical method. We examined hard and soft tissue measurements obtained from posterior-anterior cephalometric radiographs and clinical facial photographs of 153 patients (86 male, 67 female), classifying them according to menton(More)
Our aim was to evaluate the postoperative stability associated with differing degrees of mandibular setback and their relations after intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO). We planned a retrospective cohort study of 94 patients (mean age (range) 23 (18-46) years) selected from a larger group who had been diagnosed with mandibular prognathism with or(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate postoperative changes in proximal segments and condyles on the transverse plane after intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy. This is a retrospective study that included 200 subjects operated on, from 2003 to 2010, from whom we compared preoperative and postoperative (7 days, and 1, 3, 6, and 12 months) submentovertex(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term stability of the improvement of symptoms associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders after intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy for the treatment of mandibular prognathism. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 217 patients who had undergone bilateral intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effect of an active physical therapy (PT) protocol after transoral vertical ramus osteotomy and to investigate the rehabilitation patterns of mandibular movement. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 187 patients diagnosed with mandibular prognathism with or without facial asymmetry who had(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the postoperative stability of the surgery-first approach using intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO). We retrospectively studied a sample derived from the patients who were treated by the surgery-first approach using a LeFort I osteotomy and IVRO for correction of class III dentofacial deformity from 2008 to 2012.(More)
Ultrasonographic examination is widely used for screening of abnormal findings on prenatal screening. Cleft lip with or without cleft palate of the fetus can also be screened by using ultrasonography. Presence of abnormal findings of the fetal lip or palate can be detected by the imaging professionals. However, such findings may not be familiar to oral and(More)
An oral foregut cyst is a rare congenital choristoma lined by the respiratory and/or gastrointestinal epithelium. The exact etiology has not been fully identified, but it is thought to arise from misplaced primitive foregut. This lesion develops asymptomatically but sometimes causes difficulty in swallowing and pronunciation depending on its size. Thus, the(More)
