Influence of wire extension and type on splint
rigidity--evaluation by a dynamic and a static measuring method.
However, this improvement, due to the increase in VDO, is not independent of the thickness of the splint
. Chakfa et al.
A thumb spica splint
(FIGURE 2) is used to achieve this restriction.
Multivariable logistic regression analysis was subsequently performed on predictors that were statistically significant in the univariate analysis (except time to first splint
removal, which was excluded from the multivariable analysis because the model was poorly fitted with this variable due to missing values).
Vaseline gauze nasal packs were removed 48 hours and nasal splint
was removed one week postoperatively1,13,22.
In recent years in particular, silicone nasal septal splints
with integral airway have been used to reduce pain and increase patient comfort postoperatively (3-5).
(ii) No regular follow-up visits or use of different splints
or arthrocentesis for TMD treatment before starting the splint
therapy with 3 mm thick splints
Technique for Nasal Surgery Patients with Nasal Splints
in Place (Modified Double Barrel Technique).
The first one is the biomechanical approach which emphasised the prevention or correction of deformity by mechanical application of splints
. The second one is neurophysiological approach, but the exact effects of splinting on spasticity are undefined.
The mean value of linear deviation between the condylar position at habitual occlusion and condylar position at occlusion of the stabilization splint
was 2.04[+ or -]1.18 mm (minimum 0.59 mm, maximum 4.35 mm) for the splintl group.
(18) conducted a research and reported that an efficient splint
is essential for the maintenance of the avulsed tooth; there are several forms and materials for splinting, such as: resin, by itself or with a flexible arch of nylon or metal wire, orthodontic brackets with malleable arch, and vestibular arches or bars.
In this study, the nasal splint
was better tolerated following septoplasty than was the Merocel tampon.
