Subcranial and Orthognathic Surgery in Craniofacial Anomalies - On Demand Access
Patients with syndromic and non-syndromic craniofacial anomalies are often candidates for midfacial and mandibular osteotomies to address dentofacial deformities and upper airway obstruction. Surgical interventions in this population are more challenging due to complex regional anatomy related to the primary diagnosis or the effects of prior interventions (e.g., distraction osteogenesis in infancy or childhood). This 60-minute webinar will focus on the contemporary use of midface (Le Fort I-III) and mandibular osteotomies in the management of syndromic and non-syndromic craniofacial anomalies, as well as the specific considerations for addressing the complex dysmorphologies seen in this population.
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the different patterns of craniofacial skeletal hypoplasia seen in congenital craniofacial anomalies.
- Discuss the options available for management of craniofacial skeletal dysplasia based upon patient-specific factors.
- Explain the role that facial skeletal surgery plays in the contemporary management of upper airway obstruction.
- Discuss the technical considerations for performing orthognathic surgery in skeletally mature patients who have undergone prior distraction procedures.
