In this study, we used cartilage cell sheets covering bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells-Polycaprolactone/Hydroxyapatite (BMSCs-PCL/HA) scaffolds (cell sheet group) transplanted subcutaneously and intramuscularly in mini-pigs. In contrast, autogenous chondrocytes were seeded on polyglycolic acid/ polylactic acid (PGA/PLA) scaffolds for 4 and 12 weeks in-vitro pre-cultivation. Then, they were used as a cartilage-phase composition covering BMSCs-PCL/HA scaffolds, then the entirety (biphase scaffold group) was transplanted subcutaneously into mini-pigs. After 12 weeks, the harvested samples were examined histologically. The c...

Abstract Aim: To assess changes in the craniocervical structure and in hyoid bone position in skeletal Class II subjects with and without temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Materials and Methods: The cephalometric analysis of 59 subjects with skeletal Class II was evaluated and compared. The measurements considered were ANB as a parameter of Class II and C0-C1 distance, C1-C2 distance, craniocervical angle, and hyoid bone position for the cervical spine analysis. Patients were divided into patients with TMD (group A) and patients without TMD (group B). TMD were evaluated with Diagnostic Criteria for TMD (DC/T...
