Abstract [en]

Oblique sliding osteotomy of the mandibular rami was performed on 41 patients by either an intra-oral (21 patients) or extra-oral (20 patients) approach. The temporomandibular joints were radiographed preoperatively and then immediately and 18 months postoperatively. Signs of structural changes were recorded so as to compare the two approaches to osteotomy. The most common findings following the operation were signs of sclerosis and bone remodelling in 85% and 73% respectively of the two groups but these differences were not statistically significant.
