A preliminary investigation of the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure on facial morphology in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. DW Tan, YZ Foo, J Downs, A Finlay-Jones, H Leonard, M Licari, N Mullan, M Symons, KJ Varcin, AJO Whitehouse, GA Alvares.

Date: August 2020. Source:  Alcohol. Volume 86, Pages 75-80. Abstract: Alcohol exposure during pregnancy has been associated with altered brain development and facial dysmorphology. While autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is not specifically related to distinct facial phenotypes, recent studies have suggested certain facial characteristics—increased facial masculinity and asymmetry—may be associated with ASD and its clinical…

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…
