Abstract: The use of individually designed osteotomies, combined with individually manufactured osteosynthesis material, is rapidly becoming a standard for more challenging maxillofacial surgery. The benefits of patient-specific implants (PSI) in orthognathic surgery are clear in complex cases. PSIs can enhance precision and ease up the surgical protocol. We previously reported on the benefits of PSIs as reposition and fixation systems during Le Fort I osteotomy. The aim of this study was to evaluate a cohort of 28 patients, treated with bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) and PSIs for fixation, with regard to healing for up to 3 years. A retrospective cohort of 48 patients with conventional mini-plate repositioned mandibles was also collected for statistical analysis. No statistically significant differences were found with regard to infection, soft tissue problems, or reoperations between these two groups.
