PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to evaluate the potential morphologic risk factors for postoperative neurosensory disturbance (NSD) after bilateral sagittal split osteotomy. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study subjects were 30 skeletal Class III patients (9 males and 21 females), with a mean age of 22.0 years (range, 16-39 years). All patients(More)
We developed an online continuous hemodiafiltration (CHDF) system with a central reverse osmosis (RO) fluid delivery system in 1996. This was improved to a system composed of a single-patient dialysis machine and RO module in 2003. This comprises a water treatment system, an RO module, a dialysis machine with 3 endotoxin retentive filters, 2 additional(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to investigate the relation between magnetic resonance (MR) evidence of joint effusion and concentrations of proinflammatory cytokines, including interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-6, in washed-out synovial fluid samples obtained from patients with mandibular condyle fractures. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-five joints in 23(More)
UNLABELLED This study aimed to improve bone regeneration using a timed-release system for periosteal expansion osteogenesis (TIME-PEO) using a shape memory alloy (SMA) mesh device and absorbable thread in a rabbit model. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve rabbits were used in this study. The device was inserted under the periosteum at the forehead, then pushed,(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the 3-dimensional images of thinner main peripheral vessels in oral and maxillofacial regions made without contrast medium by using a new technique, fresh blood imaging (FBI). A second objective was to discern arteries from veins by using the combination of FBI with the subtraction technique. STUDY DESIGN(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate fresh blood imaging (FBI), a magnetic resonance imaging technique that does not use contrast, for identifying hemangiomas and feeding arteries in the oral and maxillofacial regions. STUDY DESIGN For 16 patients with hemangiomas, FBI visualizations of hemangiomas and feeding arteries in the oral and maxillofacial regions were(More)
The intraperitoneal (ip) administration of doxorubicin (DOX) is considered to be an important approach for the treatment of peritoneal tumors, because the prognosis of peritoneal cancer is generally poor due to its refractoriness to conventional chemotherapy. In the present study, we examined the disposition behavior of DOX after ip administration in rats(More)
The present study evaluated the use of this self-activated shape memory alloy (SMA) device, with a focus on its effects in the region under the periosteum. Twelve Japanese white rabbits were used in this study. The device was inserted under the periosteum at the forehead. In the experimental group, the device was pushed, bent, and attached to the bone(More)
BACKGROUND In conventional bone grafting technique, decortication procedure enhances the healing process and bone regeneration to reach the grafted site more readily. PURPOSE This study evaluates to improve periosteal expansion osteogenesis (PEO) using a shape memory alloy mesh (SMA) device with decortication in a rabbit model. MATERIALS AND METHODS The(More)
BACKGROUND Accidental displacement of a dental implant into the maxillary sinus is an infrequent although not uncommon complication encountered in dental clinical practice, with the main cause thought to be inadequate bone height in the posterior maxilla. We report a case of migration of a dental implant into the maxillary sinus, and discuss the benefits of(More)
