PURPOSE The goal of secondary cranioplasty is permanent cerebral protection in an esthetically acceptable fashion. Reconstruction of cranial defects can be performed with several different materials. Alloplastic materials, such as preformed methyl-methacrylate (PMMA) cranioplasties, are an alternative frequently used at our institution. This retrospective(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this investigation was to ascertain the macroscopic and microscopic details at rhinion and throughout the cartilaginous nasal pyramid in 35 white cadavers. MATERIALS AND METHODS Demographic information on 35 white cadavers was collected. This included sex, height, weight, brief medical history, age at death, and cause of death. All(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the edentulous vs dentate specimen intraoral bone harvest sites. We wished to identify if there were any sites that yielded similar quantities of bone regardless of the status of the dentition. STUDY DESIGN There were 59 cadavers in the study.

From the results presented it is clear that the abdominal filling with peritoneal dialysate interferes with pulmonary gas exchange. Two-litre cycles, not surprisingly, have a greater effect than a 1-litre cycle. The most important and often the only change is on the arterial Pao2. There was no known pulmonary disease in any of the patients studied, but in(More)
PURPOSE The conchal bowl is a portion of auricular cartilage commonly used as an autologous graft for various maxillofacial procedures. Few studies have attempted to describe the anatomy of this region in detail, particularly in relation to the curvature of the conchal bowl. The present study has provided detailed information about the anatomy of the(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to quantify and compare the amount of bone that can be harvested from the mandibular symphysis, ascending ramus/body, coronoid process, and the zygomatic-maxillary buttress using a within-subject study design. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three continuous outcomes (area, thickness, and volume) were measured at 4 sites(More)
