PURPOSE To determine the most appropriate plate fixation for dispersing the stress around screws in mandibular reconstruction. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty-eight three-dimensional reconstructed mandibular models with Central (C) or right Lateral (L) defects were created and divided into three groups, fixed with: (1) two screws on each side, (2) three screws(More)
OBJECTIVES Because posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) resection makes flexion gaps wider in total knee replacement (TKR), preserving or sacrificing a PCL affects the gap equivalence; however, there are no criteria for the PCL resection that consider gap situations of each knee. This study aims to investigate gap characteristics of knees and to consider the(More)
We set out this study to verify a hypothesis that orbital floor fractures tend to affect wider areas in patients with unilateral complete cleft palate. Using a striking machine, the inferior orbital rims of eight normal skulls (intact skull group) and eight skulls with parts of the maxillas removed to simulate alveolar and palatal clefts (cleft skull group)(More)
Current epidemiological surveys in the Western Pacific area and Kii Peninsula have suggested that low calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg) and high aluminum (Al) and manganese (Mn) in river, soil and drinking water may be implicated in the pathogenetic process of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and parkinsonism-dementia (PD). The condition of unbalanced(More)
In this research the determination of the T.H.A. was taken aided by the TT kinematic arch, guided technique, with chin compression and by the alternative technique, the anatomic average. After confirming that the cited methods determine discrepant points among themselves, the research was carried on, studying the influence of those points upon the model's(More)
The objective of this work was to study the intercuspid contacts in articulation of full dentures, confectioned in full adjustable articulators, and the individual compensating curve. The conclusions were: all of the examined cases showed simultaneous bilateral contacts; the number of each side varied from one patient to another; the variation on the work(More)
