Surgical and orthodontic treatment of retrognathia aims to improve orofacial function by adaptation and training of muscle capacity, which is connected with a change in muscle fibre-type proportions. The aim here was to analyse the proportion of myosin-heavy chain (MyHC) gene expression in type I (slow twitch/ST) and type IIb (fast twitch/FT) fibres during sagittal advancement of the mandible by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The experiments were carried out on 10… CONTINUE READING
