Presentation Transcript

  1. Maxillomandibular Fixation “The Jaw-Dropping Experience of a Lifetime”

  2. Our Team From left to right… • Emily Maslonkowski (BSAC) • Ashley Phillips (Co-Team Leader) • Nina Lewis (Co-Team Leader) • Sara Karle (BWIG) • Joe Ferris (Communications)

  3. Client • Jeremy Warner, MD • Plastic Surgery, UW Medical School

  4. Advisor • William Murphy • Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering

  5. Background Information • Mandible is the second most fractured bone of the face • Common causes of fractured mandibles • Assault • Motor vehicle accidents • Falls • Sporting accidents • 3 steps in fixing a mandible: realign bones, fixation, and rehabilitation

  6. Jaw Forces • 3 main muscles in mastication • Masseter • Temporalis • Pterygoid Figure2 Figure1 Figure3

  7. Problem Statement • Design a device which will: • Fixate the top of the mouth to the jaw • Be easier and faster to apply • Maintain an adequate cost of application • Be safe for the 4-6 weeks of healing

  8. Motivation for Project • Surgeons throughout history have dealt with broken mandibles in many ways • Maxillomandibular fixation is outdated • requires wiring the mouth shut with the use of arch bars and wires

  9. Cost effective Dynamic Emergency release Patient comfort No forces on front teeth Time effective Safe Our Client’s Requirements

  10. Application • Apply brackets with the • light cured adhesive • Connect brackets diagonally • with rubber bands • Application time: 10-20 • minutes Figure 1

  11. Materials and Costs • 8-16 stainless steel brackets • 6 mm x 2 mm x 2.5 mm • hook length: 2.5 mm • 4-8 3M Unitek rubber bands • GC Fuji Ortho adhesive Estimated Cost…$60 per application

  12. Evaluation • Cons • Bracket detachment • Pros • Quick release • Short application time • No anesthesia necessary • Aesthetically pleasing

  13. Future Work • Upgrading the brackets • Biomimetic mussel adhesive • Testing with light cured adhesive on a human subject • Implement our design nationwide
