Abstract

To provide increased stability and to decrease intermaxillary fixation time after sagittal split osteotomy, we have used passive rigid fixation. Our method has not only achieved a diminution of intermaxillary fixation time, but it has also resulted in excellent stability and retention. A total of 72 sagittal split osteotomies were performed on 36 patients from July 1985 through December 1986. Rigid fixation was accomplished with two superior border 2.7 mm bicortical screws.
