  author={K. Boonsiriseth and Buntoon Sitthikornsawat and Supreeya Tanpleerat},
Materials and methods: A retrospective study was conducted involving 40 adults patients underwent BSSRO at Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, Mahidol University between 2003 and 2011. The participants were divided into groups based on gender and mandibular advancement or setback. Posteroanterior radiographs were taken for the participants at 3 times: preoperative study (G0), initial postoperative study (G1) and 9 months postoperative study (G2). The posteroanterior cephalometric… Expand

Factors affecting the stability of bilateral sagittal split osteotomy of a mandible.
Four different types of fixation were described in orthognatic surgery: rigid intermaxillary fixation, osteosuture, osteoosynthesis and fixation with biodegradable materials. Expand
Transverse stability of the proximal segment after bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy for mandibular setback surgery.
The immediate IG change in two-jaw patients with symmetric setback showed correlation with the setback amount and the gonial width of the deviated group showed more significant changes than that of the non-deviated group. Expand
Effect of mandibular setback via bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy on transverse displacement of the proximal segment.
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate if a correlation exists between: a) transverse changes in the proximal segments because of mandibular setback surgery and b) postsurgical horizontalExpand
Transverse displacement of the proximal segment after bilateral sagittal osteotomy.
The study results indicate that transverse displacements of the proximal segments occur with BSO and RIF. Expand
Soft tissue profile changes after bilateral sagittal split osteotomy for mandibular advancement: a systematic review.
Despite a large number of studies on the short- and long-term effects of mandibular advancement by BSSO, the results of the present systematic review have shown that evidence-based conclusions on soft tissue changes are still unknown. Expand
Technical factors accounting for stability of a bilateral sagittal split osteotomy advancement: wire osteosynthesis versus rigid fixation.
Relapse increased with the amount of initial advancement and, to a lesser extent, with control of the proximal segment and change in the mandibular plane, which are similar for wire osteosynthesis and rigid fixation. Expand

The types of rigid fixation have an influence on frontal skeletal morphology, namely that screw fixation has higher stability, and postoperative inclination of mandibular lower ramus towards the facial midline is demonstrated. Expand
Lower face reduction with full-thickness marginal ostectomy of mandibular corpus-angle followed by corticectomy.
The authors' new technique allows surgeons to perform accurate, safe and reproducible ostectomies and to reshape prominent angles to more natural-looking ones with smooth ostECTomised borders. Expand
Transverse displacement of the proximal segment after bilateral sagittal osteotomy: a comparison of lag screw fixation versus miniplates with monocortical screw technique.
The results indicate that transverse displacements of the proximal segments occur after BSO surgery with both miniplate or lag screw fixation technique, and Attention and future studies should focus on possible complications thatTransverse displacement ofThe proximal segment may cause. Expand

Mandibuloplasty is an effective and a safe method for the treatment of a prominent mandibular angle and the selection of surgery should be based on the type of square jaw. Expand
