The purpose of this study was to evaluate hypoesthesia of the lower lip using trigeminal somatosensory-evoked potential following 2 types of sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) and intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO). There were 30 patients with mandibular prognathism, with and without asymmetry, who were divided into three groups: the Obwegeser(More)
OBJECT Because of their histological similarities, it is occasionally difficult to differentiate neurocytoma and dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (DNT) from oligodendroglial tumors. This study was conducted to investigate genetic differences among these tumor types in terms of loss of heterozygosity on chromosomes 1p and 19q, and p53 gene mutation. (More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the differences in bite force changes and occlusal contacts after sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) and intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO) with and without Le Fort I osteotomy. Sixty female patients with diagnosed mandibular prognathism with or without asymmetry were divided into four groups (SSRO, IVRO,(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to histologically and immunohistochemically evaluate bone regeneration using 3 different implant materials in rabbit mandibles and to compare the bone regenerative capability of these materials in an animal model. STUDY DESIGN Adult male Japanese white rabbits (n = 48; 12-16 wks old; 2.5-3.0 kg) were divided into 4(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to objectively evaluate hypoesthesia of the upper lip following Le Fort I osteotomy in combination with mandibular osteotomy with trigeminal somatosensory evoked potential (TSEP). SUBJECTS AND METHODS The subjects consisted of 25 patients with mandibular prognathism with maxillary retrognathism mandibular prognathism(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate bone formation between the proximal and distal segments after a sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) with bent plate fixation. PATIENTS AND METHODS The subjects were 23 patients (46 sides) who underwent bilateral SSRO setback surgery. They were divided into titanium and absorbable plate groups. A 3 to 7-mm gap was made between the(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the changes in temporomandibular joint (TMJ) morphology and clinical symptoms after intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO) with and without a Le Fort I osteotomy. Of 50 Japanese patients with mandibular prognathism with mandibular and bimaxillary asymmetry, 25 underwent IVRO and 25 underwent IVRO in combination(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the changes in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and ramus after sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) with and without Le Fort I osteotomy. The subjects consisted of 87 Japanese patients diagnosed with mandibular prognathism with and without asymmetry. They were divided into 2 groups (42 symmetric patients and 45(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between disc position and stress direction on the condyle by means of stress analysis using the rigid body spring model (RBSM) theory. The material consisted of 88 joints of 44 Class III dentofacial deformity patients, divided into symmetry and asymmetry groups on the basis of the Mx-Md midline position.(More)
