PURPOSE To compare postsurgical skeletal stability between counterclockwise rotation (CCWR) of the maxillomandibular complex (MMC) and clockwise rotation (CWR) of the MMC for the correction of dentofacial deformities. MATERIALS AND METHODS To address the study purpose, we designed and implemented a systematic review with meta-analysis based on the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines. A search strategy was developed, and a search of major… CONTINUE READING
