Intercondylar distance before and after mandible resection


Kruse, A l; Lecci, N L; Grätz, K W; Lanzer, M; Gander, T; Lübbers, H-T (2013). Intercondylar distance before and after mandible resection. Head & Neck Oncology, 5(1):9.

Abstract

PURPOSE: One of the goals of mandible resection and reconstruction is achieving optimal occlusion. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to evaluate the pre- and post-operative condyle distances. PATIENTS AND METHODS: All computed tomography (CT) scans of 32 patients with a partial mandible resection who were treated between 2006 and 2011 were evaluated retrospectively. The distances between the condyle centres were measured before and after mandible resection. RESULTS: The preoperative intercondylar distance of the 32 patients was between 85.8 and 109.5 mm (median = 100.5 mm), and the post-operative distance was between 87.0 and 110.5 mm (median = 100.6 mm). There was no significant difference between pre- and post-operative distances. CONCLUSION: Reconstruction plates and bony reconstructions do not significantly change the intercondylar distance.

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.
