OBJECTIVES Radiolucent mandibular lesions seen on panoramic radiographs develop from both odontogenic and non-odontogenic structures. They represent a broad spectrum of lesions with a varying degree of malignant potential. The purpose of this review is to illustrate the characteristic imaging findings-as well as the clinical and histological features-of(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy and reliability of the hand drawn cephalometric tracing technique for predicting the soft-tissue profile and their association with subjective evaluation. Distances from 8 soft-tissue landmarks to X and Y reference lines were determined on planned versus actual cephalometric profiles of 30 patients. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the reliability, accuracy and rapidity of a specific computational method for assessing the orbital floor fracture area on a CT scan. METHOD A computer assessment of the area of the fracture, as well as that of the total orbital floor, was determined on CT scans taken from ten patients. The ratio of the fracture's area to the orbital(More)
INTRODUCTION To evaluate the accuracy of CAD/CAM generated splints in orthognathic surgery by comparing planned versus actual post-operative 3D images. METHODS Specific planning software (SimPlant(®) OMS Standalone 14.0) was used to perform a 3D virtual Le Fort I osteotomy in 10 fresh human cadaver heads. Stereolithographic splints were then generated and(More)
INTRODUCTION Hypertrophy of the calvarium has different aetiologies, among them the rare Proteus syndrome. CASE REPORT We report here the case of a young girl initially treated for relapsing right then left large chronic subdural haematoma, who progressively developed craniofacial hypertrophy consistent with the diagnosis of Proteus syndrome. Calvarium(More)
INTRODUCTION The ideal approach to orbital medial wall fractures remains controversial. Only the coronal approach exposes the medial wall completely. The transcaruncular approach enables a clear and wide view of the medial wall without any visible scar compared to usual transcutaneous techniques. This approach can be combined with a transconjunctival(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the accuracy and reliability of a computer simulation system that predicts the results of an internal curvilinear mandibular distractor in the treatment of hemifacial microsomia and severe mandibular retrognathia. METHODS A two-dimensional computer analysis and simulation system was(More)
