This study, therefore, aims to compare the Retromandibular (extra-oral) approach and EAORIF for the treatment of condylar fractures.MethodA Prospective analysis of 32 Cases of Condylar fractures that reported to SDM Craniofacial Centre, Dharwad, India, was carried out. 16 patients were treated by the Retromandibular (RM) approach and 16 patients underwent EAORIF in the time period of 2012 to 2017. Patients were evaluated for clinical parameters like fracture site, displacement, surgical duration and functional parameters like occlusion, maximum interincisal opening, deviation of mouth on lateral movements, temporomandibula...

CONCLUSION:: Alloplastic reconstruction allows for precise vertical reconstruction of the ramus and condyle and sagittal repositioning of the mandibular body. The glenoid fossa component is firmly anchored to the skull base assuring a stable centric relation on the reconstructed side. Consistent and acceptable results can be achieved in skeletally mature patients. PMID: 30543122 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ZMC symmetry was assessed quantitatively.Materials and MethodsThe sample comprised 25 patients who underwent surgical reduction of comminuted ZMC fractures. They were divided into two groups according to the use of surgical navigation. Reduction outcomes were evaluated using three-dimensional computed tomography models. Five pairs ...

CONCLUSION:: Cephalic index appears to quantify the severity of sagittal synostosis better than MSVA. Cephalic index also has better responsiveness than MSVA to measure a reduction in severity of disease; however, MSVA is a better descriptive craniometric measurement. Midsagittal vector analysis was able to quantify the shift in morphology in sagittal synostosis following surgical treatment. PMID: 30537860 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This was a qualitative prospective study using in-depth, semi-structured interviews. Ten patients who fulfilled the inclusion criteria were recruited during their attendance at the Adult Craniofacial Clinic at the Eastman Dental Hospital, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Our objective was to identify key issues that affect the quality of life (QoL) of adult patients with craniofacial anomalies. This was a qualitative prospective study using in-depth, semi-structured interviews. Ten patients who fulfilled the inclusion criteria were recruited during their attendance at the Adult Craniofacial Clinic at the Eastman Dental Hospital, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Interviews ceased when no new themes arose. A framework method of analysis was used to identify themes that related to QoL.

This animal model study investigates whether a biosynthetic bone graft cross-linked with smoothened agonist activates the hedgehog signaling pathway in the reconstruction of craniofacial bony defects in female rats and if this is associated with bone regeneration.
