In a retrospective analysis of 49 patients who received bone graft augmentation to the maxillary sinuses in conjunction with implant insertion, 11 patients had a significantly reduced success rate. The aim of the present study was to determine whether bone quality, as assessed by osteometry and selected haematologic and urinary tests, influences the(More)
This report presents our experience with 12 consecutive patients treated by the method of SAILER19, comprising bone grafting to the floor of the nose and the maxillary sinus after a Le Fort I inferior repositioning of the maxilla followed by immediate implantation of endosseous implants. The corticocancellous grafts were harvested from the iliac crest.(More)
Bilateral sagittal split osteotomy may be associated with postoperative sensory deficiency in the area innervated by the inferior alveolar nerve. The aim of this study was to assess the neurosensory response of the inferior alveolar nerve after such surgery. Fifty consecutive patients receiving mandibular setback or advancement were investigated. Four(More)
Fifty-two patients with malocclusions underwent orthodontic treatment in combination with orthognathic surgery involving a Le Fort I and/or sagittal split osteotomy. Approximately 5 years after surgery, the patients were examined for signs and symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMD). The frequencies were found to be low in comparison with(More)
The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the results of 2-stage maxillary sinus reconstruction using titanium implants placed into iliac corticocancellous bone blocks previously grafted to the floor of sinuses. Fifty consecutive patients received 314 Brånemark implants of varying lengths; 202 implants were placed in the grafted bone and 112 were(More)
The aim of the present retrospective study was to evaluate the results of a one-stage reconstructive procedure using titanium implants placed in iliac corticocancellous bone blocks grafted to the floor of maxillary sinuses. Forty-nine patients received 314 Brånemark implants, of which 171 implants of various lengths were placed in the grafted bone and 143(More)
PURPOSE Two different methods of rigid fixation were compared for postoperative stability 6 months after mandibular advancement for treatment of Class II malocclusion. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty (30 + 30) patients from two different oral and maxillofacial units treated for a Class II malocclusion by bilateral saggital split osteotomy (BSSO), and two(More)
A technique is described for inserting autogenous iliac bone into the maxillary sinus of the edentulous patient via a fenestration of the anterolateral maxillary wall, maintaining the mucous membrane lining of the sinus intact, and allowing insertion of titanium screw implants into the atrophic maxilla at the same operation. This method avoids a Le Fort I(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine whether bone quality, as assessed by osteometry and histologic parameters, can be used to predict implant integration in conjunction with maxillary sinus reconstruction. STUDY DESIGN Twelve patients with severely atrophied maxillary alveolar processes were treated through use of a two-stage surgical(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare two different methods of rigid fixation for any difference in postoperative stability after mandibular advancement. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty-eight patients with Class II malocclusion treated by bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) and mandibular advancement were selected for this retrospective study. Group A (n = 16) had(More)
