Hybrid distraction: a novel method for distraction osteogenesis of the alveolar process


Zemann, Wolfgang; Metzler, Philipp; Jacobsen, Christine; Obwegeser, Joachim Anton (2012). Hybrid distraction: a novel method for distraction osteogenesis of the alveolar process. Journal of Craniofacial Surgery, 23(6):1642-1644.

Abstract

Segmental distraction osteogenesis of the anterior alveolar process is a sufficient method to enlarge the alveolar arch. Indications for this method are dental crowding, retroalveolism, and leveling of the curve of Spee. However, after the distraction period, the anterior alveolar segment often shows an unfavorable inclination resulting in nonphysiologic load on the lower incisors.The aim of this paper was to introduce a new approach in segmental distraction osteogenesis of the anterior alveolar process. This new method combines 2 different surgical techniques: a segmental osteotomy for the alveolar ridge with instant fixation in the desired position and a distraction procedure for the alveolar segment. This hybrid distraction avoids an unfavorable inclination of the lower incisors after front-block distraction procedures.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
