Multiplanar and combined distraction osteogenesis for three-dimensional and functional reconstruction of unilateral large maxillary defects.

Abstract

We have developed a new way of three-dimensional and functional reconstruction of unilateral large maxillary defects by multiplanar and combined distraction osteogenesis of the zygoma, maxillary alveolar process, and hard palate. In the first procedure we started the internal curvilinear distraction osteogenesis of the left zygoma in one patient who had had… (More)
