Resumo: Purpose: This pilot investigation was designed to apply several, newly developed and more sophisticated methods of measuring muscle structure, function and fibre orientation to a situation where adaptation of muscle is pivotal to the success of a therapeutic approach.
Materials and Methods: Patients attending the combined orthodontic / orthognathic surgery clinic at Clitrofa – Centro Médico, Dentário e Cirúrgico, in Trofa – Portugal were screened using Magnetic Resonance Imaging protocol.

Evaluation of Pressure Changes in Orthognathic Surgery using Pressurex® in 3 Years of Follow-up

Despite its importance, the measurement of pressure in orthognathic surgery often receives little attention. Pressurex® (SPL – Sensor Products LLC, USA) is one of a few pressureindicating sensor films that reveals pressure distribution and magnitude between any two contacting, mating or impacting surfaces, and is currently viewed as a golden standard for that purpose. This study was designed to test Pressurex® in orthognathic surgery.
