BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES From 1989 to 2009, at the Department of Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Surgery, Umberto I Polyclinic, "Sapienza" University of Rome, 3236 patients affected by maxillo-mandibular malformations were submitted to orthognathic surgery, by means of rigid internal fixation. Follow-up highlighted the surgical complications and the possible(More)
The LeFort III osteotomy is the surgical treatment performed in patients with mid-facial retrusions in craniofacial dysostoses such as Crouzon, Apert, Pfeiffer syndromes, etc. The first authors to report the accomplishment of this osteotomy were Gillies and Harrison in 1951, this technique was then resumed and improved by Tessier in 1967, who made five(More)
Orbital dystopia is one of the most frequent clinical signs of craniofacial malformation. The term dystopia indicates the mono- and bilateral asymmetry of the orbits at least in one of the three-dimensional planes. The diagnosis is based on the clinical test of the patient with the support of diagnostic instruments such as teleradiography in both standard(More)
Lung asbestos bodies were searched for in 65 subjects with pulmonary cancer and without occupational exposure and in 65 matched controls. No significant association between the presence of asbestos bodies and occurrence of lung cancer was found. Nevertheless, adenocarcinoma was significantly associated with the presence of lung asbestos bodies in men. The(More)
The central giant cell granuloma of the maxillo-mandibular region is a relatively uncommon lesion (3.5%-0.1%). Essentially, it occurs in the second decade of life and it is mainly located in the mandibular region. The female/male ratio is 3:1. The authors present an unusual localisation of central giant cell granuloma in a five year old child's maxillary(More)
