PURPOSE To demonstrate our experience using internal devices for unidirectional distraction osteogenesis in treating different mandibular hypoplasias (with or without maxillary deformities). An algorithmic table for diagnosis, and treatment planning is presented. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty internal distraction devices were used in 16 patients with(More)
PURPOSE This report presents the results of distraction osteogenesis using unidirectional extraoral and intraoral devices in 8 patients with different grades of vertical mandibular ramus hypoplasia. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eight patients with hypoplastic mandibles underwent unilateral lengthening of the ascending ramus using unidirectional extraoral or(More)
BACKGROUND Distraction osteogenesis has been used for reconstruction of bone and soft-tissue defects. The authors present their clinical experience in the reconstruction of mandibular segmental defects by means of internal distraction osteogenesis. METHODS Ten patients with mandibular defects ranging from 30 to 80 mm in length were treated in the authors'(More)
PURPOSE To present the authors' clinical experience with unidirectional internal distraction devices to reconstruct mandibular defects. PATIENTS AND METHODS Five patients have been treated with mandibular distraction osteogenesis to reconstruct different acquired segmental defects. These mandibular defects (35 to 80 mm in length) were reconstructed by(More)
Maxillomandibular advancement (MMA) can be effective for managing obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA); however, limited information is available on the predictor surgical variables. This study investigated whether normalization of the mandibular occlusal plane (MOP) was a determinant factor in curing OSA. Patients with moderate or severe OSA who underwent MMA(More)
The authors describe a new technique for reconstruction of mandibular body defects. The feasibility of distraction osteogenesis with submerged (internal) devices for reconstruction of segmental mandibular defects is investigated in an experiment with five adult dogs. A segmental mandibulectomy was performed on the horizontal ramus. The bony defect was(More)
PURPOSE In this article, a new method of upper lip augmentation using a bilateral buccal fat pad flap is reported. This prospective study evaluated the changes in the upper lip that occur after maxillary surgery with concomitant mobilization of the bilateral buccal fat to improve upper lip projection. MATERIALS AND METHODS A bilateral pedicled buccal fat(More)
