Department of Orthodontics, School of Dentistry, Dental Research Institute, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea.

Objective: To investigate the pattern of accuracy change in artificial intelligence-assisted landmark identification (LI) using a convolutional neural network (CNN) algorithm in serial lateral cephalograms (Lat-cephs) of Class III (C-III) patients who underwent two-jaw orthognathic surgery.

Methods: A total of 3,188 Lat-cephs of C-III patients were allocated into the training and validation sets (3,004 Lat-cephs of 751 patients) and test set (184 Lat-cephs of 46 patients; subdivided into the genioplasty and non-genioplasty groups, n = 23 per group) for LI.

Midface advancement in an adult patient with Crouzon syndrome: Modified LeFort III + LeFort I osteotomy accompanied by genioplasty and nasal dorsum augmentation.

Dent Res J (Isfahan) 2022 27;19:38. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Dental Implants Research Center, Dental Research Institute, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, Isfahan, Iran.

Crouzon syndrome is an autosomal dominant trait, leading to midface deficiency, undeveloped orbits, short nasal dorsum, and exophthalmos as the typical clinical features. Early correction of craniofacial problems can improve patients' quality of life, but many of these patients with Crouzon syndrome are seeking treatment in older ages when they are missed for multidisciplinary management and distraction technique in proper timing. Modified LeFort III osteotomy is one of the treatment options that can be used for proper resolution in adult patients. Read More
