A total of 154 adult patients with sleep complaints underwent a polysomnography and a craniofacial cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). OSA was defined as an apnea and hypopnea index (AHI) or an oxygen desaturation index (ODI) ≥ 10. Soft tissues and craniofacial bones volumes were prospectively measured by CBCT and collected blindly from sleep polysomnography. Among the study patients, 127 (83%) suffered from OSA and 27 (17%) did not. OSA patients demonstrated a narrower maxillo-palatine core volume (11...

INTRODUCTION: The mandible consists of different segments, each of which possess its own specific characteristics regarding emergence, ossification during growth and pathologies. Orthodontists need to be very familiar with these developmental anomalies if they are to avoid failure in their orthopedic or orthodontic treatments and in order to understand the reasons for the lack of success of "conventional" treatments. Each segment must develop correctly if the mandible is to achieve optimal development and occupy a normal position within the cranio-facial complex...

OBJECTIVES: Acoustic emission (AE) is a non-destructive test to detect energy release. This technique was applied during rapid maxillary expansion (RME) to evaluate the reaction of the craniofacial skeleton. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A swine model was analysed. Soft tissues were removed from two heads, while other two were preserved intact. A palatal expander (PE) was positioned and AE sensors were placed on the intermaxillary, fronto-nasal, and maxillo-lacrimal sutures...

The identification of an individual from skeletal remains plays a vital role in forensic investigation as it is essential for the identification of the individual's age, sex, and/or race and further analysis. Skeletal characteristics differ from one population group to another since population-specific osteometric standards exist for sex determination. Since the mandible is the largest, strongest and most durable compact facial bone, it is the best preserved after death. While sexual dimorphism of the mandible is indicated by its shape and size, morphometric analysis is more accurate in the determination of sex from the skull...

Craniofacial microsomia remains the second most common craniofacial deformity after cleft lip and palate. Mandibular pathology has been classically scored from type I to type III by the modified Pruzansky-Kaban classification. The authors report a case of a 5-year-old patient with Goldenhar syndrome and bilateral type III craniofacial macrosomia. The patient had absence of bilateral glenoid fossas, condyles, coronoids, and rami as well as hypoplasia of the symphysis, parasymphysis, and mandibular body. Reconstruction was performed using 2 costochondral rib autografts to reconstruct a ramus and assist in the development of a neo-glenoid fossa at the cranial base...

Although underestimated, visual involvement is among the most frequent neurological complications of head trauma. There is no consensus in the management of these patients and visual recovery is uncertain. The goal of our study is to describe the clinical presentation and the clinical course of traumatic optic neuropathy in patients with head or maxillo-facial trauma. The clinical records of 8 patients, treated from November 2007 to March 2012, were reviewed in the department of ophthalmology (visual testing) of the university regional medical center in Lille...

OBJECTIVE: Anterolateral skull base surgery to sellar and parasellar region has always represented a technical challenge for neurosurgeons. The microscopic endoscope-assisted trans-maxillo-sphenoidal approach (MEMSA) affords a direct surgical corridor free from critical skull base structures. The aim of this study is to describe and critically evaluate its application to access the sellar and parasellar areas in terms of surgical exposure and operability. METHODS: Six cadaveric heads were examined...

BACKGROUND: Airway management in the emergency room can be challenging when patients suffer from life-threatening conditions. Mental stress, ignorance of the patient's medical history, potential cervical injury or immobilisation and the presence of vomit and/or blood may also contribute to a difficult airway. Videolaryngoscopes have been introduced into clinical practice to visualise the airway and ultimately increase the success rate of airway management. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that the C-MAC videolaryngoscope improves first-attempt intubation success rate compared with direct laryngoscopy in patients undergoing emergency rapid sequence intubation in the emergency room setting...

BACKGROUND: Timing of surgical intervention in hemifacial microsomia (HFM) is controversial. Although mandibular osteodistraction in childhood for HFM is popular, recent data for single-stage distraction in growing HFM patients demonstrated long-term relapse. Literature suggests that adolescents in the late mixed dentition age or permanent dentition age (11-16-year-old) had more stable outcomes post-distraction than younger children. We present favorable experience using single-treatment simultaneous maxillo-mandibular distraction in early adolescent Pruzansky-Kaban type II HFM patients...

Sex determination is the preliminary step in every forensic investigation and the hard palate assumes significance in cranial sexing in cases involving burns and explosions due to its resistant nature and secluded location. This study analyzes the sexing potential of incisive foramen to posterior nasal spine length, palatine process of maxilla length, horizontal plate of palatine bone length and transverse length between the greater palatine foramina. The study deviates from the conventional method of measuring the maxillo-alveolar length and breadth as the dimensions considered in this study are more heat resistant and useful in situations with damaged alveolar margins...

PURPOSE: Nowadays, with the increased diffusion of Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT) scanners in dental and maxillo-facial practice, 3D cephalometric analysis is emerging. Maxillofacial surgeons and dentists make wide use of cephalometric analysis in diagnosis, surgery and treatment planning. Accuracy and repeatability of the manual approach, the most common approach in clinical practice, are limited by intra- and inter-subject variability in landmark identification. So, we propose a computer-aided landmark annotation approach that estimates the three-dimensional (3D) positions of 21 selected landmarks...

REVIEW
Antonio Mazzoni, Marco Krengli
Surgery has evolved greatly over the last decades thanks to the more sophisticated and conservative surgical approaches and also thanks to the progress of diagnostic imaging. An added value is represented by the increased experience of the professionals and the close multidisciplinarity of the procedures including neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists and maxillo-facial surgeons. One of the most recent developments is the endoscopic surgery allowing for more conservative and cosmetically satisfactory outcomes. Radiation therapy has greatly changed over the last decades thanks to the technology advances related both to the availability of new imaging modalities and techniques of radiation delivery...

Orthodontic treatment for skeletal Class II malocclusion was undertaken with the aim ofachieving orthopedic correction by modifying the growth pattern. A case of Class II, Division 1 malocclusion in the late mixed dentition was corrected to a Class I molar relationship by primarily using cervical-pull headgear. Cephalometric analysis indicated a reduction in the maxillo-mandibular discrepancy (ANB°) due to the correction of a skeletal Class II malocclusion to a Class I occlusion. The superimposition demonstrated that this was achieved by favorable growth of the mandible, control of maxillary first molars in an antero-posterior direction and retraction of maxillary incisors...
