Abstract [en]

The clinical results of oblique sliding (subcondylar) osteotomy of the mandibular rami performed by the extraoral or intraoral approach were compared. The patient material comprised 40 patients with mandibular prognathism. Twenty patients were operated upon using the extraoral approach and 20 patients were operated on using the intraoral approach. All patients had intermaxillary fixation for 7 weeks. The patients in both groups were followed up for 18 months. The experience of the operations was that the intraoral approach gave a shorter operation time than the extraoral approach. The extraoral approach, however, gave better visibility in the operation field and greater possibilities of manipulating the proximal fragment into an optimal position. In the follow-up evaluation, there were no significant differences between the two surgical techniques with regard to dental relapse, post-operative occlusion and mandibular function.
