Thesis. Outcome assessment of facial orthopedics with taping for cleft lip deformities using 3D stereophotogrammetry. Peter Mankowski.

Date: May 2020. Source: Thesis. Master of Science, The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, Craniofacial Science, The University of British Columbia. Background: Prior to operative correction of a cleft lip, presurgical orthopaedics (PSO) with facial taping is used to improve pre-maxillary and soft tissue alignment. Two commercially available taping systems, Dynacleft and 3MTM taping…

Evaluation of soft-tissue changes in young adults treated with the Forsus fatigue-resistant device. B Akan, İ Veli.

Date: April 2020. Source: American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Volume 157, Issue 4, Pages 481-489.e2. Highlights: • Forsus fatigue-resistant devices did not affect sagittal or vertical planes in postpeak patients. • Changes in maxilla and mandible were dentoalveolar only. • Significant differences in soft-tissue profiles in postpeak patients were not found. Introduction: This…

Evaluation of Changes in Nasal Projection After Surgically Assisted Rapid Maxillary Expansion With 3dMDface System. MH Büyükçavuş, Y Findik, T Baykul.

Date: April 2020. Source: The Journal of Craniofacial Surgery. DOI: 10.1097/scs.0000000000006436. Abstract: The most appropriate treatment option for maxillary expansion in adulthood due to increased cyanosis in sutures is surgically assisted maxillary expansion (SARME). Skeletal and dental changes are observed with SARME. Three-dimensional imaging techniques are gaining importance with the developing technology in evaluating the…

Patient- and 3D morphometry-based nose outcomes after skeletofacial reconstruction. R Denadai, PY Chou, HJ Seo et al.

Date: March 2020. Source: Scientific Reports, Volume 10, Article No. 4246, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-020-61233-6. Abstract: Patient satisfaction with the shape and appearance of their nose after orthognathic surgery-based skeletofacial reconstruction is an important, but often overlooked, outcome. We assessed the nose-related outcomes through a recently developed patient-reported outcome instrument and a widely adopted 3D computer-based objective outcome…

3D soft‐tissue evaluation of a Class III treatment with rapid maxillary expander and face mask in pre‐pubertal phase – A retrospective cohort study. BK Đokić, A Zhurov, S Richmond et al.

Date: March 2020. Source: Orthodontic & Craniofacial Research, https://doi.org/10.1111/ocr.12373. Objective: The aim of this prospective controlled study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the rapid maxillary expander (RME) and face mask treatment using three‐dimensional soft‐tissue facial characteristics of pre‐pubertal Class III children. Setting and Sample Population: CLIII and non‐CLIII groups, both of 32 white children…

Assessing the Influence of Chin Asymmetry on Perceived Facial Esthetics With 3-Dimensional Images. T Dong, N Ye, L Yuan, S Wu, L Xia, B Fang.

Date: March 2020. Source: Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. DOI: 10.1016/j.joms.2020.03.017. Objective: We used 3-dimensional (3D) images to assess the influence of chin asymmetry on perceived facial esthetics, investigate the cognitive boundaries of chin asymmetry among orthodontists, general dentists, and laypersons, and provide quantitative reference for clinical treatment. Materials and Methods: A 3D facial…

Three-Dimensional Facial Imaging for the Diagnosis of Complex Soft Tissue Secondary to Craniofacial Trauma. L Zou, S Holmes.

Date: March 2020. Source: Atlas of Operative Maxillofacial Trauma Surgery, pp 101-105, Springer, London. Abstract: Facial scanning is a relatively recent imaging modality that has been evolving over the past 30 years. It provides valid and reliable three-dimensional (3D) imaging. 3D facial images also provide objective quantifications of facial changes. Image capturing uses a noncontact…

Outcome of facial contour asymmetry after conventional two-dimensional versus computer-assisted three-dimensional planning in cleft orthognathic surgery. P Hsu, R Denadai, BCJ Pai et al.

Date: February 2020. Source: Scientific Reports, Volume 10, Article No. 2346, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-020-58682-4. Abstract: Computer-assisted 3D planning has overcome the limitations of conventional 2D planning-guided orthognathic surgery (OGS), but difference for facial contour asymmetry outcome has not been verified to date. This comparative study assessed the facial contour asymmetry outcome of consecutive patients with unilateral cleft…
