Vascularized bone grafts for the management of skeletal defects in orthopaedic trauma and reconstructive surgery
Bone loss from trauma, neoplasia, reconstructive surgery and congenital defects remains a major health problem. The long-term clinical goal is to reconstruct bony tissue in an anatomically functional three-dimensional ...
Anatomical variation and morphology in the position of the palatine foramina in adult human skulls from Greece
Objective: To investigate the anatomical variability of the palatine structures in Greek population. Material and methods: 71 Greek adult dry human skulls were examined to detect the position of the greater palatine (GPF) ...
The Pterygopalatine Ganglion and its Role in Various Pain Syndromes: From Anatomy to Clinical Practice
