This study investigated predictive risk factors of condylar remodeling changes after counterclockwise maxillomandibular advancement (CCW-MMA) and disc repositioning surgery. Forty-one female patients (75 condyles) treated with CCW-MMA and disc repositioning had cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans taken pre-surgery, immediately after surgery, and at an average 16 months post-surgery. Pre- and post-surgical three-dimensional models were superimposed using automated voxel-based registration on the cranial base to evaluate condylar displacements after surgery...

The aim of this study was to evaluate midpalatal suture maturation in adults, as observed in cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images. CBCT scans from 78 subjects (64 female and 14 male, age range from 18 to 66 years) were evaluated. Midpalatal suture maturation was verified on the central cross-sectional axial slice in the superior-inferior dimension of the palate, using methods validated previously. Intra-examiner agreement was analyzed by weighted kappa test. Multinomial logistic regression was used to test whether sex and chronological age (adults <30 years or ≥30 years) could be used as a predictor for the maturational stages of the midpalatal suture...

REVIEW
L G Mercuri, B M Saltzman
Although the risk factors and diagnosis of heterotopic ossification (HO) are discussed in the orthopedics literature, the etiology of HO, as well as its prevention and management, remain theoretical. Furthermore, there is a lack of information in the literature regarding HO in temporomandibular joint replacement (TMJR). This article provides a qualitative review of information relative to the etiology, diagnosis, and management of HO to inform and encourage further investigation in TMJR. The orthopedic HO literature considered for this qualitative review was drawn from a comprehensive examination of the subject published previously by one of the authors...

Caudal septal deviation leads to unfavorable esthetic as well as functional effects on the nasal airway. A modification to the tongue-in-groove (TIG) technique to correct these caudal septal deformities is described. With placement of a temporary suspension suture to the caudal septum, manual traction is applied, assuring that the caudal septum remains in the midline position while it is being secured with multiple through-and-through, trans-columellar and trans-septal sutures. From 2003 to 2016, 148 patients underwent endonasal septoplasty using this modified technique, with excellent functional and cosmetic outcomes and a revision rate of 1...
