PURPOSE Gunshot wounds are a rare occurrence during times of peace. The removal of projectiles is recommended; in some cases, however, this is a controversy. The reproduction of a projectile image can be difficult if it is not adjacent to an anatomical landmark. Therefore, navigation systems give the surgeon continuous real-time orientation(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to determine whether postoperative control of the neurostimulator placement within the pterygopalatine fossa (PPF) by means of 3-dimensional (3D) cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) was of therapeutic relevance compared to intraoperative CBCT imaging alone. MATERIAL AND METHODS Immediately after implantation(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to evaluate the use of intraoperative cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in monitoring the results of repositioning and osteosynthesis of condylar process and head (capitulum) fractures of the mandible to see if CBCT is beneficial for these patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS Sixty patients (22 females and 38 males, age range 16-79(More)
INTRODUCTION Analyzing chromosomal amplifications delivers valuable information for identification of oncogenes. For carcinomas of the oral cavity only few genes have been identified in amplified regions. The aim of this study was to search genes in amplified regions as possible biomarkers and targets for novel therapies. MATERIAL AND METHODS DNA from 10(More)
Early detection and complete resection of oral carcinomas is of crucial importance for patient survival. This could be significantly improved by developing a non-invasive, sensitive and real-time detection technique. Time-resolved autofluorescence measurement is state-of-the-art technology originally developed for non-destructive inspection of material. In(More)
PURPOSE The surgical approaches for the open treatment of condylar process fractures have been controversial. In our study, we evaluated the morbidity of the transparotid approach during 2 years of follow-up. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 48 patients with condylar process Class II and IV fractures according to classification of Spiessl and Schroll, were(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this retrospective investigation was to evaluate the position of the nasotracheal tube in the nose and to show its anatomical relationship with the maxillary sinus ostium. METHODS Fifty data sets from patients who had undergone endonasal intubation were analyzed for tube positioning. There was a drop-out of eight data sets due to(More)
