OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to decide whether use of bicortical screw fixation provides sufficient stability to dispense with intermaxillary fixation (IMF). STUDY DESIGN Eighty-six patients who had undergone surgical setback of the mandible using bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomies were examined. Group 1 (15 patients) received miniplate fixation with IMF for 6 weeks, and group 2 (71 patients) received bicortical screw fixation and immediate postoperative function. The 2 groups… CONTINUE READING
