The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of an algorithm based on the mass tensor model (MTM) for computerized 3D simulation of soft-tissue changes following bimaxillary osteotomy, and to identify patient and surgery-related factors that may affect the accuracy of the simulation. Sixty patients (mean age 26.0 years) who had undergone(More)
A major concern in mandibular advancement surgery using bilateral sagittal split osteotomies (BSSO) is potential postoperative relapse. Although the role of postoperative changes in condylar morphology on skeletal relapse was reported in previous studies, no study so far has objectified the precise changes of the condylar volume. The aim of the present(More)
BACKGROUND Prophylactic removal of asymptomatic disease-free impacted wisdom teeth is surgical removal of wisdom teeth in the absence of symptoms and with no evidence of local disease. Impacted wisdom teeth may be associated with pathological changes, such as pericoronitis, root resorption, gum and alveolar bone disease (periodontitis), caries and the(More)
PURPOSE To quantify the postoperative rotation of the proximal segments in 3D and to assess its role on skeletal relapse and condylar remodelling following BSSO advancement surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS 56 patients with mandibular hypoplasia who underwent BSSO advancement surgery were enrolled into the study. A CBCT scan was acquired preoperatively, at(More)
