Transpalatal distraction has been established as a technique for surgical assisted rapid palatal/maxillary expansion (SARPE/SARME) in order to correct transverse maxillary deficiency. From 2007 until 2013 bone borne transpalatal distraction devices have been inserted in 50 patients affected by transverse maxillary deficiency and transpalatal distraction has(More)
Model catalyst systems have been prepared by growth of small metal aggregates on thin well ordered oxide films of alumina and silica. These systems lend themselves to structural and morphological characterization via scanning probe microscopies and transmission electron microscopy and bridge to a certain extent the materials gap between metal single crystal(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to evaluate changes in the marginal bone level of dental implants in irradiated and nonirradiated patients and to identify possible influential factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six patients with 194 implants were involved in the study (7 women and 29 men). The mean age of the patients was 65.8 years (39 to 90(More)
For patients with acute ischemic stroke due to total occlusion of the internal carotid artery (ICA), an effective intervention to improve neurologic symptoms and clinical outcome has not yet been established. Some authors have reported successful revascularization for patients with acute stroke symptoms secondary to ICA occlusion only in isolated series and(More)
CONTEXT The management of severe maxillary constriction can be challenging. For that purpose surgically assisted maxillary expansion by transpalatal distraction (TPD) can typically be recommended after skeletal maturity. However in selected cases bone borne transpalatal distraction devices can contribute to improve maxillary constriction considerably(More)
UNLABELLED Although beta-oxidation of fatty acids is suppressed rapidly during ischemia, the behavior of fatty acid extraction at different flow rates is incompletely understood. This study assessed the relationship between flow and extraction of (123)I-iodophenylpentadecanoic acid (IPPA) in the isolated heart model, especially at low flow. METHODS(More)
Contemporary computer-assisted technologies can support the surgical team in the treatment of patients affected by dentofacial deformities. Based on own experiences of 350 patients that received orthognathic surgery by the same team from 2007 to 2015, this clinical review is intended to give an overview of the results and risks related to the surgical(More)
INTRODUCTION Distraction osteogenesis (DO) has been applied to the field of craniomaxillofacial surgery for more than two decades. Although relevant factors for successful distraction osteogenesis are well known there are ongoing controversies about indications and limitations of the method and there is still a lack of evidence based data. Since 2003 the(More)
