Abstract

Rigid internal fixation was used successfully in 111 consecutive cases in which both the maxilla and the mandible were mobilized simultaneously. The use of rigid fixation allowed for early mobilization of the mandible, which facilitated resumption of orthodontic therapy after surgery. The favorable short-term results achieved indicate the need to study the long-term stability of the technique.
