  • Comparison of post-operative outcomes of graft materials used in reconstruction of blow-out fractures. [Journal Article]
    Ulus Travma Acil Cerrahi Derg. 2020 Jun; 26(4):538-544.Düzgün S, Kayahan Sirkeci B
  • CONCLUSIONS: Results show that the auricular conchal cartilage graft was the best biomaterial used to repair defects smaller than 4 cm², where as titanium mesh was a good option to repair defects larger than 4 cm². However, selection of the optimal biomaterial to be used to repair orbital blow-out fractures should be made according to patient characteristics and preoperative findings, the severity of the injury, the cost of the biomaterial to be used, and surgeon's expertise.
  • Frontal Bone Infarctions Masquerading as Bilateral Orbital Cellulitis in a Patient with Sickle Cell Disease. [Case Reports]

  • Transhumanism, Moral Perfection, and Those 76 Trombones. [Journal Article]
    J Med Philos. 2020 Mar 19; 45(2):179-192.Koch T
  • Transhumanism advances an ideology promising a positive human advance through the application of new and as yet unrealized technologies. Underlying the whole is a libertarian ethos married to a very Christian eschatology promising a miraculous transformation that will answer human needs and redress human failings. In this paper, the supposedly scientific basis on which transhumanist promises are …
  • Intraoral Approach for Surgical Treatment of Psammomatoid Juvenile Ossifying Fibroma. [Journal Article]
    J Craniofac Surg. 2020 May/Jun; 31(3):e306-e309.Diniz JA, Siqueira ADS, … Laureano Filho JR
  • Psammomatoid juvenile ossifying fibroma (PJOF) is a rare benign tumor that usually affects the paranasal sinuses, orbit, and skull. In most cases, extensive incisions are necessary for full access to the tumor site. The aim of this paper is to report a case of extensive PJOF in which an intraoral surgical approach was performed with complete excision of the tumor. A female patient, 18-year old ha…

  • Does Early Repair of Orbital Fractures Result in Superior Patient Outcomes? A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. [Journal Article]
    J Oral Maxillofac Surg. 2020 Apr; 78(4):568-577.Jazayeri HE, Khavanin N, … Dorafshar AH
  • CONCLUSIONS: Differences in the timing of surgery and definition of patient outcomes, as well as variations in methods of evaluating postoperative outcomes, potentiate the risk of bias and warrant downgrading of the quality of evidence in a study. The timing of repair varied among 2, 4, and 8 weeks after injury. However, a short time to surgical intervention was significantly associated with resolution of vertical dystopia, postoperative enophthalmos, and motility restriction.

  • Neglected orbitozygomaticomaxillary fractures with complications: A case report. [Journal Article]
    Int J Surg Case Rep. 2019; 62:35-39.Isya Wahdini S, Dachlan I, … Afandy D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Several examinations before reconstruction of the injury has to be done, especially radiological examinations to decide proper diagnosis and reconstruction plans. Some complications may make difficulties in establishing precise time for surgery. Three-dimensional (3-D) reconstrucion model can help increase accuracy of the reconstruction but consume more time.Severe maxillofacial fracture should be treated immediately to avoid further complications. Multidisciplinary examinations can provide more accurate preliminary recommendations particularly when combine with properly calibrated CT scan imaging.
  • Novel anti-obesity effect of scutellarein and potential underlying mechanism of actions. [Journal Article]
    Biomed Pharmacother. 2019 Sep; 117:109042.Lin Y, Ren N, … Pu P
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that Sc possesses important novel anti-obesity effects accompanying lipid lowering and anti-inflammation-based liver protective effects. These favorable effects are causally associated with the suppression of gene expression of inflammatory cytokines and fine regulation of genes responsible for energy metabolism. Our results advance the understanding of the pharmacological actions of Sc, and provides a role for Sc in effective management of obesity.
