AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate three-dimensionally the changes that occur in the pharyngeal airway space (PAS) after maxillo-mandibular advancement surgery (MMA) and to investigate whether patients perceive these changes. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective analysis of 10 patients who underwent MMA surgery for functional and aesthetic complaints was performed, pre and postoperative cone-beam computed tomography scans (CBCT) were obtained for each patient and the changes in the PAS… CONTINUE READING
