Background: A successful rhinoplasty procedure requires a well-defined and properly projected nasal tip; however, surgical control of the nasal tip is difficult. The aim of this investigation was to assess the efficacy and safety of a modified suture technique, which can be used to fix the caudal septal extension graft during primary rhinoplasty of the Asian population and revision septorhinoplasties of the Caucasian population, and to compare it with those of other commonly used techniques.


Additional studies on the distribution of stresses during vertical compaction of gutta-percha in the root canal
Telli, C; Gulkan, P; Raab, W (1999-07-10)
Objective This study was designed to investigate the effect of certain pathological alterations of the dental structures (diminishing bone support, internal resorption, root perforation, periapical lesion) on stress distribution during root canal filling procedures by the warm vertical compaction technique.
Bayesian segmentation of human facial tissue using 3D MR-CT information fusion, resolution enhancement and partial volume modelling
Şener, Emre; Mumcuoğlu, Ünal Erkan; Hamcan, Salih (2016-02-01)
Background: Accurate segmentation of human head on medical images is an important process in a wide array of applications such as diagnosis, facial surgery planning, prosthesis design, and forensic identification.
Biomechanics of the Gazi type pelvis external skeletal fixator
Korkusuz, Feza; Kaymak, O; Citipitioglu, E; Akkas, N (1997-01-01)
External skeletal fixation is an alternative method of treatment to conventional therapy and open surgical procedures in pelvis fractures. The appropriate type of frame and the configuration of the connecting bars of these fixators are under investigation. In the Gazi type pelvis external fixator (GPEF) which has been developed, a 70 degrees angulation is applied to the connecting bars of the anterior quadrangular frame. This configuration, which is expected to improve the stability of the posterior column ...

While several materials and techniques have been used to assess the quality of root canal fillings in micro-CT images, the lack of standardization in scanning protocols has produced conflicting results. Hence, the aim of this study was to determine a cutoff voxel size value for the assessment of root canal filling voids in micro-CT and nano-CT images. Twenty freshly extracted mandibular central incisors were used. Root canals were prepared with nickel titanium files to an ISO size 40/0.06 taper and then fil...
Biomechanics of porous ceramic implants used in long-bones segmental defect healing
Balçık, Cenk; Tokdemir, Turgut; Korkusuz, Feza; Department of Engineering Sciences (2002)
Reconstruction of bone in segmental defect is a challenging orthopedic application in which nonunion is seen due to loss of tissue and atrophic bonding inability. Calcium and phosphate based ceramics are the new generation of bone grafts to be used in large segmental defects as they show excellent biocompatibility, biodegradability and osteoconductivity. Ideal ceramic composition, configuration and material property compatible to cortical bone is yet to be determined. It is hypothesized that long-bones segm...
