More powerful contemporary computer hardware has enabled the development and exploration of a wide variety of techniques to depict spatial characteristics of computer-generated objects in three-dimensional (3D) space. Particularly, the role of stereoscopic viewing and the use of object motion to reflect the position and size of objects in 3D space have been(More)
Traumatic carotid-cavernous fistulae are rare yet potentially lethal vascular anomalies in the skull base seen after craniomaxillofacial trauma. This aberrant vascular communication has been extensively evaluated and classified, with a number of treatment modalities available to clinicians. The ultimate and definitive treatment of carotid-cavernous fistulae(More)
Dentists should be aware of the characteristics of suture material, and the technique used should provide effectiveness and ease. Dentists who routinely perform dentoalveolar surgery should have at least 1 type of absorbable and 1 type of nonabsorbable suture readily available within their operatory supply. This article focuses on the physical properties of(More)
The management of fractures of the mandibular condyle continues to be controversial. This is in part attributable to a misinterpretation of the literature from decades prior, a lack of uniformity of classification of the various anatomical components of the mandibular condyle, and a perceived potential to cause harm through the open approach based in part(More)
The ideal modality for fixation of pediatric craniomaxillofacial fractures remains elusive for a number of reasons. Surgeons who manage these injuries have replaced wiring techniques with the introduction of some form of reconstructive implant. The most commonly used implants are either resorbable or semi-rigid titanium. This presentation is a synopsis of(More)
