INTRODUCTION Surgical correction of malocclusion changes the force to moment ratio of masticatory muscles inserting at the mandible caused by shortening, lengthening and rotation of the bone following osteotomy. During muscle adaptation the expression of mRNA for the myosin heavy chain (MyHC) of type I and type II fibres may be changed. MATERIAL AND METHODS The adaptation of the masseter muscle was investigated at the mRNA level in 10 patients 6 months after orthognathic surgery in the… CONTINUE READING
