OBJECTIVE The goals of this retrospective clinical study were to identify surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion (SARPE) complications and assess their incidence, with the aim of informing surgeons and orthodontists of the risks of this widely used procedure before they recommend it to patients. STUDY DESIGN Between June 2008 and July 2010, 60(More)
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of these new generation hemostatic agents on early-stage soft tissue healing of warfarin-treated rats by measuring the tissue factor (TF) activities. Rats in the warfarin group were treated intraperitonally with 0.1 mg/kg warfarin, and rats in the control group were treated with 1 mL/kg saline. All rats had 3(More)
PURPOSE Maxillary sinus's inferior pneumatization is a physiological process, which increase with time and accelerates following extraction. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of nasal septal deviation (NSD), concha bullosa (CB), and Haller's cells (HC) and to examine the correlation of maxillary sinus inferior pneumatization (MSIP) with(More)
The management of midfacial fractures includes the treatment of facial fractures, dentoalveolar trauma, and soft-tissue injuries, as well as associated injuries, mainly of the head and neck [1]. The management of fractures of the maxillofacial complex remains a challenge for the oral maxillofacial surgeon, demanding both skill and expertise [2]. The success(More)
PURPOSE An ultrasonic resorbable pin (SonicWeld, KLS Martin, Mühlheim, Germany) was compared with hyaluronic acid (Hyaloss Matrix, Anika Therapeutics, Bedford, MA) for their ability to maintain space in non-grafted sinus lifting. MATERIALS AND METHODS A comparative split-mouth study was designed and implemented. Six women and 4 men were included (mean(More)
AIM Ankaferd Blood Stopper (ABS) is a new promising local hemostatic agent, and its mechanism on hemostasis has been shown by many studies. However, the effects of ABS on skin superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) activities have not been investigated before. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of this new generation local hemostatic(More)
The purpose of this report is to evaluate the effectiveness of a high Le Fort I osteotomy design, including the malar bones, which allows segment sliding over the zygoma and forces the osteotomized segment to move forward with distraction. Two patients (male, 23-and 30-year-old) with malar deficiency underwent high Le Fort I osteotomy and surgically(More)
Objective To explore the effects of hyaluronic acid (HA) on bleeding and associated outcomes after third molar extraction. Methods Forty patients who had undergone molar extraction were randomly divided into two groups; 0.8% (w/v) HA was applied to the HA group (n=20) whereas a control group (n=20) was not treated. Salivary and gingival tissue factor (TF)(More)
