OBJECTIVE To evaluate the outcome of presurgical nasoalveolar molding therapy in the treatment of patients with bilateral cleft lip and palate. DESIGN A prospective study with blinded measurements. SETTING The Cleft and Craniofacial Clinic at the University of Texas at Houston Medical School, Houston, Texas. PATIENTS Eight patients with bilateral(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate and summarize the evidence comparing nonsurgical therapies in the treatment of infants with deformational plagiocephaly. DATA SOURCES Scientific articles and abstracts published in English between January 1978 and August 2007 were searched from 5 online literature databases, along with a manual search of conference proceedings.

PURPOSE The purpose of this prospective multicenter study was to assess the accuracy of a computer-aided surgical simulation (CASS) protocol for orthognathic surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS The accuracy of the CASS protocol was assessed by comparing planned outcomes with postoperative outcomes of 65 consecutive patients enrolled from 3 centers.(More)
The current surgical treatment of sagittal craniosynostosis often fails to produce a normal cephalic index; however, recent reports of early endoscopic suture release and postoperative helmet therapy promise improved cranial symmetry. The role of helmet therapy is critical in this approach, but there are few reports on the use of helmet therapy after(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the use of molding helmet therapy in the treatment of positional brachycephaly and posterior positional plagiocephaly. Four hundred twenty-eight children with positional brachycephaly or plagiocephaly were included in this study. In this group of patients, 132 (32%) were treated with positioning alone. Of the 292(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of helmet therapy (DOC band) in the correction of patients with moderate to severe posterior deformational plagiocephaly. DESIGN In this prospective study, the infants were evaluated using 18 anthropometric measurements. PATIENTS The charts of 248 patients seen between August 1, 1995, and(More)
Complex maxillofacial malformations continue to present challenges in analysis and correction beyond modern technology. The purpose of this paper is to present a virtual reality workbench for surgeons to perform virtual orthognathic surgical planning and soft-tissue prediction in three dimensions. A resulting surgical planning system, i.e.,(More)
Two basic problems have been associated with traditional 2-dimensional cephalometry. First, many important parameters cannot be measured on plain cephalograms; and second, most 2-dimensional cephalometric measurements are distorted in the presence of facial asymmetry. Three-dimensional cephalometry, which has been facilitated by the introduction of(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this pilot study was to test a new Le Fort I internal distraction device. PATIENTS AND METHODS A new internal Le Fort I distraction device designed by 1 of the authors was used in 3 patients with cleft lip and palate and severe maxillary hypoplasia who needed maxillary advancements in excess of 12 mm. Presurgical planning used(More)
Distraction osteogenesis of the mandible has found an application in the treatment of patients with a variety of different mandibular deformities. Compared with the relatively simple unidirectional distraction of long bones as described by Ilizarov, the three-dimensional distraction of the mandible is extremely complex. Whereas experience with orthognathic(More)
