Fibula free flap reconstruction of the mandible in cancer patients: evaluation of a combined surgical and prosthodontic treatment concept.
The final goal of mandibular reconstruction following ablative surgery for oral cancer is often considered to be dental implant-supported oral rehabilitation, for which bone grafts should ideally beExpand

Automatic extraction of the mid-facial plane for cranio-maxillofacial surgery planning.
Recently developed computer applications provide tools for planning cranio-maxillofacial interventions based on 3-dimensional (3D) virtual models of the patient's skull obtained fromExpand

Extensive augmentation of the alveolar ridge using autogenous calvarial split bone grafts for dental rehabilitation.
Free autogenous iliac bone is the most commonly used graft material for an extensive alveolar ridge reconstruction. The application of iliac bone, however, is associated with problems, such asExpand

Bi-directional distraction osteogenesis of the alveolar bone using an extraosseous device.
OBJECTIVES In alveolar distraction, the bone segment tends to incline palatally or lingually, making rigid control of the segments difficult. The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of aExpand

Outcome and patterns of failure after postoperative intensity modulated radiotherapy for locally advanced or high-risk oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma
BackgroundTo determine the outcome and patterns of failure in oral cavity cancer (OCC) patients after postoperative intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) with concomitant systemicExpand

Quantifying the influence of bone density and thickness on resonance frequency analysis: an in vitro study of biomechanical test materials.
PURPOSE Resonance frequency analysis (RFA) offers the opportunity to monitor the osseointegration of an implant in a simple, noninvasive way. A better comprehension of the relationship between RFAExpand

A new method for computer-aided operation planning for extensive mandibular reconstruction.
Reconstruction of the mandible is challenging, because of the mandible’s significant effect on facial harmony and its central role in mastication, speech, swallowing, and tongue base supportExpand

Policy of routine titanium miniplate removal after maxillofacial trauma.
PURPOSE The literature shows that hardware removal rates after the fixation of maxillofacial fractures with miniplates are not insignificant. The aim of the present survey was to clarify the policiesExpand

A new approach for 3D computer-assisted orthognathic surgery—first clinical case
Abstract A new method for planning orthognathic surgery has been developed that combines CT-based 3D computer planning technology with conventional dental plaster cast occlusion planning techniques.Expand

3D surgical planning and navigation for CMF surgery
In this paper we describe a system for corrective and reconstructive CMF surgery that allows planning of bone segment relocations in 3D and transfer of the goal positions into an intra-operativeExpand
