Osseous alterations in condylar head after directional change of functional loading in rabbit mandibular condyle

Hwang Soon Jung , Yang Hoon Joo , Cho Tae Hyung , Oh Ji Hye , Kim In Sook

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the bony change of mandibular condyle when the originally less-loaded or unloaded surface was subjected to functional loading by the newly designed animal experiment, and to evaluate whether this experiment is adequate for the animal model of condylar resorption due to mechanical loading.Methods: Twelve adult male New Zealand white rabbits were used. Unilateral oblique vertical body osteotomy (UOVBO) ...

Preliminary study for the effect of PDGF or mesenchymal stem cells on tissue repair of cutaneous radiation injury

Hwang Soon Jung , Cho Tae Hyung , Lee Beomseok , Oh Ji Hye , Kim In Sook

Purpose: Osteoradionecrosis (ORN) of the mandible is a serious complication of radiation therapy, and preceded by soft tissue damage before bone loss appears. However, there is still no adequate treatment to heal the soft tissue damage of ORN. This study investigated the effect of PDGF-BB or mesenchymal stem cells (rMSCs) on radiation-induced soft tissue injury.Methods: Rat model was designed to irradiate the skin of SD rats while sparing the body and in...
