OBJECTIVES Bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) is a relatively rare but serious side effect of bisphosphonate (BP)-based treatments. This retrospective study aimed to investigate the risk factors and predictive markers in cases where patients were refractory to a recommended conservative treatment offered in our hospital. PATIENTS AND(More)
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)
OBJECTIVE Endoscope-assisted transoral open reduction and internal fixation (EAORIF) for mandibular condyle fractures has recently become popular because it is minimally invasive, provides excellent visibility without a large incision, and reduces surgical scarring and the risk of facial nerve injury. This report describes a retrospective clinical study(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)
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)
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)
SUBJECTS The purpose of this study was to evaluate the treatment modalities for neurosensory disturbances (NSDs) of the inferior alveolar nerve occurring after retromolar bone harvesting for bone augmentation procedures before implant placement. METHODS One hundred four patients, of which 49 and 55 exhibited vertical or horizontal alveolar ridge defects(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)
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)
