OBJECTIVE To obtain detailed anatomic and physiologic information on the levator veli palatini muscle from MRI in individuals with repaired cleft palate and to compare the results with those from normal subjects reported by Ettema et al. (2002). DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING University-based hospital. PARTICIPANTS Four men (ages 22 to 43 years)(More)
Computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology today is the standard in manufacturing industry. The application of the CAD/CAM technology, together with the emerging 3D medical images based virtual surgical planning (VSP) technology, to craniomaxillofacial reconstruction has been gaining increasing attention to reconstructive surgeons. This(More)
Mandibular distraction osteogenesis has gained popularity for the treatment of mandibular hypoplasia and asymmetry. With this technique, significant skeletal and soft tissue changes in the lower face can be produced in a relatively short time period without the need for extensive surgery. Despite general acceptance, the long-term sequelae of the procedure(More)
Osseointegrated titanium implants to the cranial skeleton for retention of facial prostheses have proven to be a reliable replacement for adhesive systems. However, improper placement of the implants can jeopardize prosthetic outcomes, and long-term success of an implant-retained prosthesis. Three-dimensional (3D) computer imaging, virtual planning, and 3D(More)
The treatment of patients with unilateral cleft lip has undergone significant development during the last decades. With better understanding of the anatomy of the unilateral cleft lip and nasal deformities, primary correction of the nasal deformity at the time of lip repair, critical evaluation of short and long-term results following various treatment(More)
The coronal incision has been modified so that if it needs to be extended to improve exposure, the extension will be behind the ear and therefore less noticeable. The incision has been used in 25 adults and 30 children with no complications. Its cosmetic appearance is superior to the preauricular coronal incision, and it is preferred especially by young(More)
Oncologic mandibular reconstruction has changed significantly over the years and continues to evolve with the introduction of newer technologies and techniques. Patient demographic, reconstructive, and complication data were obtained from a prospectively maintained clinical database of patients who underwent head and neck reconstruction at our institution.(More)
