Abstract:Multislice CT scan was found to be a practical imaging technique to evaluate the morphologic changes in the airway and the mandible after distraction osteogenesis. It rules out the need for other traditional methods. Owing to the plasticity and malleability of the infant mandible that allow for sufficient bone remodelling, unidirectional internal distractors achieved a satisfactory maxillomandibular relationship which was tolerated by the infants and accepted by the parents.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
