A present limitation of forensic anthropology practice in China is the lack of population-specific criteria on contemporary human skeletons. In this study, a sample of 203 maxillofacial Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images, including 96 male and 107 female cases (20-65 years old), was analyzed to explore mandible sexual dimorphism in a population of(More)
PURPOSE A new operating method was used to treat traumatic temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis, to restore the structure of the TMJ, to improve the secondary maxillofacial deformity, and prevent recurrence of TMJ ankylosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-six patients (20 females, 16 males; aged 5 to 54 years old) with TMJ ankylosis type II or III of 1 to(More)
PURPOSE To compare the outcome of inferior and superior joint space injection of sodium hyaluronate in patients with disc displacement without reduction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred twenty patients with disc displacement without reduction of TMJ were randomized into 2 experimental groups. One group of patients(More)
The aim of the study was to prepare an active recombinant human perforin by comparing 5 candidate segments of human perforin. Full-length perforin, MAC1 (28-349 aa), MAC2 (166-369 aa), C-100, and N-60 of human perforin were selected as candidate active segments and designated, respectively, HP1, HP2, HP3, HP4, and HP5. The target genes were amplified by PCR(More)
Osteochondroma is one of the most common benign bone tumors, but it is rare in the mandibular condyle. The purpose of this study was to increase the clinical and radiographic cognition of osteochondroma in the mandibular condyle. Thirty-four patients with radiographic and pathologic features of unilateral condylar osteochondroma were included in this(More)
PURPOSE The retrospective study evaluated long-screw (bicortical screw) osteosynthesis used in the surgical treatment of sagittal fracture of the mandibular condyle and compared it with titanium plates and removal of the condylar fragment. PATIENTS AND METHODS Ninety-five patients with sagittal fracture of the mandibular condyle received open surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Hyaluronic acid (HA) injection is widely used in the treatment of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) osteoarthritis (OA). Proteoglycan 4 (PRG4) is another joint lubricant that protects surface of articular cartilage. But few studies had explored the role of HA in regulation of PRG4 expression in TMJ OA. In this study, the effects of HA on the(More)
PURPOSE This study compared the effect of superior and inferior joint space injections of hyaluronic acid (HA) and evaluated osteoarthritic changes in patients diagnosed with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) anterior disc displacement without reduction (ADDw/oR) in association with osteoarthritis (OA) by cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Synovial chondromatosis (SC) of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a rare proliferative disorder characterized by the formation of cartilaginous or osteocartilaginous nodules in synovium and joint space. Fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF-2) is frequently applied in chondrogenic differentiation assays. Therefore, we hypothesized that FGF-2 might(More)
