BACKGROUND Horizontal advancement genioplasty can be extremely rewarding for microgenia. However, it is challenging for even very experienced surgeon to determine the three-dimensional position of the distant bone fragment during the operation. This study aimed to apply and evaluate computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing techniques for(More)
BACKGROUND In patients with mild to moderate Parry-Romberg syndrome (PRS), plastic surgeons have mainly focused on the restoration of soft tissue deficiencies. While, bone deficits are easily overlooked. This study developed a new method combines the autologous mandibular outer cortex (MOC) grafting with fat grafting in mild to moderate patients with PRS,(More)
UNLABELLED Oblique mandibular chin-body osteotomy is a widely used narrowing genioplasty. However, the historic challenge is how to achieve a highly symmetric result of oblique mandibular chin-body osteotomy. Here, we present a novel and simple method to achieve a highly symmetrical mandibular chin-body osteotomy. METHOD Ten consecutive patients underwent(More)
BACKGROUND Reduction gonioplasty is frequently used to achieve an oval-shaped face in Asia. However, the soft tissue response and bone regeneration of reduction gonioplasty which are keys to the outcome are still unclear. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of bone regeneration on facial width and the soft tissue response of reduction(More)
M oday, Sptem er 6, 2016 CONCLUSIONS: Bitemporal to biparietal ratios are a quantitative, objective clinical measure that can be used to differentiate patients with significant trigonocephaly from those with metopic ridging but no significant cranial deformity. In no case of trigonocephaly did CT scan provide information that would alter surgical planning(More)
With the development of computer technology and database management system, more and more data will be accumulated. The problem of the effective usage and selection of these surge data gives birth to a new subject - Data-Mining. Clustering is one of the “Three Data-Mining Technologies”. The K-means algorithm is a simple, practical and(More)
BACKGROUND Mandible contour surgery, including reduction gonioplasty and genioplasty, has become increasingly popular in East Asia. However, it is technically challenging and, hence, leads to a long learning curve and high complication rates and often needs secondary revisions. The increasing use of 3-dimensional (3D) technology makes accurate single-stage(More)
