Biomechanical effects of rapid maxillary expansion on the craniofacial skeleton, studied by the finite element method
Iseri, H; Tekkaya, AE; Oztan, O; Bilgic, S (Oxford University Press (OUP), 1998-08-01)
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...
Biomechanical Investigation of Disturbed Hemodynamics-Induced Tissue Degeneration in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms Using Computational and Experimental Techniques
Salman, Huseyin Enes; Ramazanlı, Burcu; Yavuz, Mehmet Metin; Yalcin, Huseyin Cagatay (2019-05-31)
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is the dilatation of the aorta beyond 50% of the normal vessel diameter. It is reported that 4-8% of men and 0.5-1% of women above 50 years of age bear an AAA and it accounts for similar to 15,000 deaths per year in the United States alone. If left untreated, AAA might gradually expand until rupture; the most catastrophic complication of the aneurysmal disease that is accompanied by a striking overall mortality of 80%. The precise mechanisms leading to AAA rupture remains unc...
Biocompatibility and biomechanical properties of new polycaprolactone-bioglass based bone implant materials
Erdemli, Özge; Tezcaner, Ayşen; Department of Engineering Sciences (2007)
Researches on bone defects are focused on the use of composites due to the composite and well-organized hierarchical structure of the bone. In this study, it is aimed to develop Polycaprolactone based implants with different organic DBM, HYA- and/or inorganic bioglass, calcium sulfate- compositions for augmenting bone healing. Bioactivity of the discs was evaluated by scanning electron microscopy and EDS analysis after incubation in SBF for 1, 7 and 14 days. All bioglass containing groups showed apatite mo...
