Cosmetic and functional reconstruction of large and complex calvarial defects remains a challenge for craniofacial surgeons. Computer-designed alloplastic implants have revolutionized the conceptualization and approach to these reconstructions and have become a reliable and irreplaceable part of the surgical armamentarium. We are reporting a case of complex(More)
Metastasis of a tumour to the mandibular condyle is rare. We describe a case in which a patient presented with isolated condylar metastasis mimicking acute internal derangement of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Open biopsy revealed a lesion seated within the condylar head and extending through the bony cortex to the infratemporal fossa. Histopathology(More)
Venous malformations are the most common of all vascular anomalies. Phleboliths are described as characteristic of such malformations; furthermore, when they are encountered in the major salivary glands, they must be differentiated from salivary calculi. We report a case of an intraoral venous malformation in the left retromolar area with multiple(More)
In the vast majority of cases, precise symmetric reconstruction of maxillofacial defects remains an unsolved problem for craniofacial surgeons. Computer-designed alloplastic implants have contributed considerably to improvement in the accuracy and reliability of facial rehabilitation, rapidly becoming an irreplaceable part of the surgical armamentarium.

PURPOSE The goal of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the use of 2.4-mm AO titanium reconstruction plates for mandibular fractures. PATIENTS AND METHODS We analyzed the clinical and radiologic data of 63 patients with 63 single fractures (53 comminuted, 5 dislocated, and 5 with bone loss) and 2 patients with double fractures. Fracture location(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively evaluate the use of titanium mesh plates in a combined transcaruncular-transconjunctival approach for severe medial orbital wall fractures. PATIENTS AND METHODS We analyzed the clinical and radiologic data of 10 patients with isolated blow-out orbital fractures. The fracture location was the medial wall in 5 (50%) and the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate vertical stability after combined orthodontic surgical treatment of skeletal anterior open-bite malocclusion. MATERIALS AND METHODS A literature search was performed to locate studies pertaining to vertical stability after combined orthodontic surgical treatment of skeletal anterior open-bite malocclusion. Data from the identified(More)
PURPOSE To describe and evaluate the reliability and the accuracy of a specific computed tomography-based assessment in predicting treatment decisions for pure orbital floor blowout fractures (BOFs). MATERIALS AND METHODS In this retrospective cohort study, the charts of all patients presenting with isolated BOFs from January 2009 through April 2011 at(More)
Cosmetic and functional re-establishment following primary or secondary treatment of comminuted and complex midfacial fractures remains a challenge for surgeons. Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS) has revolutionized the conceptualization and approach to these reconstructions and has become a reliable part of the surgical armamentarium. Computer aided(More)
