Case Study
Chin osteotomy is used in esthetic and functional procedure; genioplasty shows different surgical options as lineal osteotomy, curved osteotomy, segmental osteotomy and others for different conditions of the face. This communication shows the use of two surgical guides used in a patient with extremely facial asymmetry; the surgical plan was realized in a stereolithographic biomodel. The first surgical guide was used for osteotomy and the second surgical guide was used for putting the plate, previously bent, and for segmented osteotomy in the planned position on the biomodel; this technique showed adequate adaptation and security in this extremely asymmetric case. The potential use of this surgical guide was discussed.

    Various materials are used to fill osteotomy defects created in the medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (MOWHTO). Our hypothesis was that a bone allograft would provide the osteotomy site bone healing within the expected time. We performed the MOWHTO using a cancellous bone allograft in...

    The aim of this study was to determine the influence of the design of the sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) on the mechanical resistance to vertical forces. An in vitro study was designed for 30 test specimens. Two osteotomy models were made on two polyurethane hemimandibles, where group I...
