Bilateral temporomandibular joint reconstructions with stock alloplastic prostheses on a distracted mandible - A case report.

Cranio 2020 May 14:1-8. Epub 2020 May 14.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Manipal College of Dental Sciences, Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), Manipal, India.

The management of patients with a triad of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis, retrognathia, and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has long been a matter of debate. Even though consensus favors distraction osteogenesis (DO) in the 1st phase of treatment to relieve the OSA, various treatment approaches for TMJ reconstruction after ankylosis release have been put forth. Most of the reconstructive modality has been focused on autogenous materials or customized TMJ prostheses after mandibular distraction. Read More

Surgical-Orthodontic Considerations in Subcranial and Frontofacial Distraction.

Oral Maxillofac Surg Clin North Am 2020 May 23;32(2):309-320. Epub 2020 Feb 23.

Craniofacial Center, Divisions of Craniofacial and Plastic Surgery and Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery, Seattle Children's Hospital, 4800 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105, USA. Electronic address:

Subcranial and frontofacial distraction osteogenesis have emerged as powerful tools for management of hypoplasia involving the upper two-thirds of the face. The primary goal of subcranial or frontofacial distraction is to improve the orientation of the upper face and midface structures (frontal bone, orbitozygomatic complex, maxilla, nasal complex) relative to the cranial base, globes, and mandible. The various techniques used are tailored for management of specific phenotypic differences in facial position and may include segmental osteotomies, differential vectors, or synchronous maxillomandibular rotation.

Temporomandibular Joint Ankylosis Following Mandibular Distraction Osteogenesis: A Dreadful Complication.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Jan/Feb;31(1):222-225

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University Lille, CHU Lille, INSERM U1008 - Controlled Drug Delivery Systems and Biomaterials.

Introduction: Mandibular distraction osteogenesis (MDO) is an effective treatment for severe micrognathia, as it helps to avoid tracheostomy but has some adverse effects on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). TMJ ankylosis is a serious condition leading to feeding difficulties and growth impairment, and could result in worse consequences in cases with micrognathia who already have limited growth potential. Here, we aimed to report on cases with TMJ ankylosis-a rare but devastating complication of MDO. Read More

The Tübingen palatal plate approach to Robin sequence: Summary of current evidence.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2019 Nov 20;47(11):1699-1705. Epub 2019 Aug 20.

Center for Cleft Palate & Craniofacial Malformations, Tübingen University Hospital, Germany; Department of Neonatology and Pediatric Sleep Lab, Tübingen University Hospital, Germany.

Various treatments, many of them considerably invasive, are currently applied to infants with Robin sequence (RS) and accompanying upper airway obstruction (UAO). We present a narrative review of our data on the Tübingen palatal plate (TPP) which show the following: a) in a randomized trial, the TPP was superior to a sham procedure in alleviating UAO; b) children treated with the TPP in infancy showed an intellectual development within the reference range; c) prone positioning is no alternative, as it is ineffective and associated with an increased risk of sudden death; d) the TPP reduces the mixed-obstructive apnea index to near-normal values, both in isolated and most (83%) syndromic RS, e) of 443 infants (129 syndromic) treated with the TPP in our center, 23 (5%) ultimately received a tracheostomy (all with syndromic RS), f) recent data suggest that the TPP may induce mandibular catch-up growth, g) the TPP may also help to reduce respiratory complications following cleft closure in RS, and h) TPP treatment is applied by various centers around the world, although it is unclear if its effectiveness is invariably controlled by endoscopy and sleep studies, although both are necessary. Given these data from peer-reviewed studies, it may be questioned whether the "First do no harm" principle is always adhered to when subjecting RS infants to more invasive procedures such as mandibular distraction osteogenesis or tongue-lip adhesion.

Mandibular Distraction Osteogenesis.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Nov-Dec;30(8):e743-e746

MDC, Delhi Cantt, India.

Mandibular hypoplasia is a common dentofacial deformity requiring a combination of orthodontic and surgical treatment. Before the introduction of distraction osteogenesis various orthognathic surgical procedures were carried out to treat mandibular hypoplasia. Orthognathic procedures like corpus lengthening by bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy and genioplasty are commonly practised all over the world to address the high esthetic demands and functional problems.

Pedicled segmental rotation techniques for posterior mandible augmentation: a preliminary study.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Dec 10;48(12):1584-1593. Epub 2019 May 10.

Department of Tissue Engineering and Applied Cell Sciences, School of Advanced Technologies in Medicine, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Rehabilitation of the atrophic posterior mandible is a challenge in dental practice. Conventional treatments include the segmental sandwich osteotomy or inlay bone grafting (IBG), onlay bone grafting (OBG), short implants, distraction osteogenesis, and inferior alveolar nerve transposition (IANT), each with its downsides. This case series is reported to introduce a modification of IBG - pedicled segmental rotation (PSR) for the reconstruction of co-existing vertical and horizontal defects in the posterior mandible.

Cephalometric studies of the mandible, its masticatory muscles and vasculature of growing Göttingen Minipigs-A comparative anatomical study to refine experimental mandibular surgery.

PLoS One 2019 25;14(4):e0215875. Epub 2019 Apr 25.

Institute of Veterinary Anatomy, Department of Veterinary Medicine, Freie Universität Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

Over many decades, the Göttingen Minipig has been used as a large animal model in experimental surgical research of the mandible. Recently several authors have raised concerns over the use of the Göttingen Minipig in this research area, observing problems with post-operative wound healing and loosening implants. To reduce these complications during and after surgery and to improve animal welfare in mandibular surgery research, the present study elucidated how comparable the mandible of minipigs is to that of humans and whether these complications could be caused by specific anatomical characteristics of the minipigs' mandible, its masticatory muscles and associated vasculature.
