In this experimental study, the goal was to test the sufficiency of actual fixation plates in zygomatic complex fractures and the efficiency of a modified plate at the zygomaticofrontal suture in a suitable model, which was designed for biomechanical study. To address this issue, a zygomatic fracture model produced by using a cadaveric cranium was simulated and the fractures were fixed by the actual and modified fixation materials. The force simulating masseter muscle pull was applied with the Lloyd materia...
Biomechanical effects of rapid maxillary expansion on the craniofacial skeleton, studied by the finite element method

The aim of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical effect of rapid maxillary expansion (RME) on the craniofacial complex by using a three-dimensional finite element model (FEM) of the craniofacial skeleton. The construction of the three-dimensional FEM was based on computer tomography (CT) scans of the skull of a 12-year-old male subject. The CT pictures were digitized and converted to the finite element model by means of a procedure developed for the present study. The final mesh consisted of 2270 thi...

Biocompatible dicalcium phosphate (DCP) cements are widely used as bone repair materials. In this study, we aimed to investigate the impact of different amounts of sodium alginate (SA) on the microstructural, mechanical, and biological properties of DCP cements. Beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) was prepared using a microwave-assisted wet precipitation system. Lattice parameters of the obtained particles determined from X-ray diffraction (XRD), were in good match with a standard phase of β-TCP. Scanning ele...
