By the time the skeletal age assessment was performed, hand wrist radiographs and cephalograms from male subjects clearly differed from the standard plates more frequently than those of the female subjects, particularly in carpal bone area, which always showed less maturity compared with the other bones as by Acheson et al.
A major advantage of CBCT-generated cephalograms is the ability to excise unwanted structures such as the cervical spine and occiput, avoiding superimposition of irrelevant structures, and providing a remarkably clear image of pertinent maxillo-facial structures (8).
There were five criteria for inclusion in the study: 1) confirmed active CH type 1 based on serial clinical and radiographic evaluations (serial lateral cephalograms and lateral temporomandibular joint [TMJ] cephalometric tomograms); 2) bilateral or unilateral high condylectomy to remove the active growth center and articular disc repositioning for group 2; 3) orthognathic surgery to correct the associated dentofacial deformity; 4) at least 2 years of postsurgical follow-up; and 5) adequate clinical and radiographic records for analysis.
All cephalograms were obtained before any medical or surgical intervention was undertaken.
