PURPOSE Using finite element (FE) computer model simulation, we compared the mechanical characteristics of the mandible after bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSRO) through the use of 2 different techniques to stabilize the osteotomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Based on the reconstructed geometry from computed tomography scans of dry adult skull with a mandibular deformity requiring surgical correction, we developed 3-dimensional FE models that simulate BSSRO with 2 different techniques… CONTINUE READING
