    Airway management in infants with Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) is often challenging. Advancement of the tongue base using mandibular distraction in neonates can avoid tracheotomy and is increasingly propagated. The osteotomies can be performed via intra- and extraoral approaches. Nowadays, for...

    Introduction: Orthodontic treatment is based on the principle that if prolonged pressure is applied to the tooth, tooth movement will occur as the bone around the tooth re-models. In this study osteotomy of buccal alveolar plate and undermining of interseptal bone was performed at premolar...

    Background: Transtrochanteric anterior rotational osteotomy for osteonecrosis of the femoral head should be performed to obtain >34% of the ratio of transposed intact posterior articular surface to the acetabular weight-bearing area. Therefore, the presence of acetabular dysplasia is unfavorable...
