We summarize up-to-date planning technics of orthognathic and reconstructive surgery operation which appeared with three-dimensional imaging, using literature data and some clinical examples. In many cases, orthognathic and reconstructive operations mean the only treatment of facial deformity caused by tumour, traumatic injury or congenital anomaly. In this field, radiology plays an important role not only in the diagnosis but also in the planning of the treatment. With the appearance of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), the previously used two-dimensional cephalometric analysis on lateral cephalogram was changed for three-dimensional cephalometric measurements...

INTRODUCTION: Impacted mesiodentes in the inverted position may interfere with the base of the nasal cavity or the nasal septum. They can rarely erupt into the nose as well. Traditionally they are extracted via intraoral approaches (transpalatal or vestibular). Also, an endoscopically assisted transnasal approach can be used. In this paper, the authors are the first to present a group of patients suffering from impacted mesiodentes who have been surgically treated using a modified maxillary vestibular approach with subperiostal intranasal dissection...

Peri-implantitis, restoration loosening and fracture, implant structural damage are common post-restorative complications in implant rehabilitation. With an increasing incidence, they may occur in implant-supported single or splinted crowns, bridges, overdenture or fixed denture. Possible causes involve not only the design of implant components structure and characteristics of restorative materials, but also the design of restoration and the occlusal function and structure of patients. Despite the hard texture of teeth, occlusal force may cause abrasion to occlusal and proximal aspects, as well as mesial migration of tooth, leading to continuous change of occlusal structure and function through the whole life...

BACKGROUND: Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a compressive neuropathic disorder at the level of the wrist. Acupuncture and other methods that stimulate acupuncture points, such as electroacupuncture, auricular acupuncture, laser acupuncture, moxibustion, and acupressure, are used in treating CTS. Acupuncture has been recommended as a potentially useful treatment for CTS, but its effectiveness remains uncertain. We used Cochrane methodology to assess the evidence from randomised and quasi-randomised trials of acupuncture for symptoms in people with CTS...

OBJECTIVES: Auricular deformities therapy by external molding is possible. It must be undertaken early, ideally before the sixth week of life. Persistency of maternal hormones impregnation during the first six weeks of life permits to maintain the malleable cartilages. They can thus be molded into a new position. After the end of this hormonal therapy, the cartilages gradually become rigid in a specific position. MATERIAL AND METHODS: All infants under 6 weeks of age with isolated auricular deformities between July 2015 and July 2016 received a neonatal treatment with an external molding device called EarWell© or a custom-made one with silicone...

Removable complete dentures have been the most costeffective treatment option for edentulous jaws since decades. However, certain problems are encountered by the patients such as stability of the lower dentures resulting in poor masticatory efficiency. Ridge resorption and inadequate bony support are the long-term complications comprising the stability of the denture and patient finding it difficult to control denture movement during speaking and eating reducing patient compliance. Mandibular implant retained over dentures or hybrid dentures have shown to be better alternatives in terms of retention, stability and patient satisfaction...

This review highlights the contributions of American oral and maxillofacial surgeons to the field of orthognathic surgery. The present state of the art and science of orthognathic surgery is the harvest of yesterday's innovation and research. An improved understanding of the biological and surgical principles and the routine involvement of orthodontics have fueled widespread adoption of a coordinated approach to the treatment of dentofacial problems. Technologic advances in rigid internal fixation, virtual surgical planning with computer-aided manufacturing of occlusal splints and cutting guides, custom implants, and worldwide interest in the correction of dentofacial and craniofacial deformities have resulted in highly predictable, efficient, and safe treatment, which scarcely resembles the situation 70 years ago...

Kidney-sparing surgery of upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) requires a stringent follow-up with frequent ureteroscopies. Triage testing could reduce the number of follow-up ureteroscopies and hence minimize the invasiveness of follow-up. The use of urine-based markers for triage seems appealing but should be feasible with selective urine from outpatient cystoscopy to maximize the reduction of invasiveness. In this study, the feasibility of UroVysion® fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) for the detection of UTUC in 1 mL of selective urine is investigated...
