INTRODUCTION Distraction osteogenesis has gained popularity because of the hypothesized concurrent soft-tissue expansion, which is believed to reduce postoperative relapse. Although many articles describe the immediate success of mandibular distraction, little research has been done on its long-term stability. Our goal was to examine the long-term craniofacial changes after distraction. METHODS Four hemifacial microsomic patients treated with unilateral mandibular distraction were recalled… CONTINUE READING
