The concept and technique of using TMJ TJP for TMJ reconstruction and simultaneous mandibular advancement with counterclockwise rotation of the maxillomandibular complex was developed by Wolford et al. The influence of gender and laterality on the incidence of hemifacial microsomia. International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology. The custom-made prosthesis was developed basing on 3-dimensional virtual program Dolphin The winning idea behind surgery for children is the fact that the bone and soft tissue can be corrected.
Appropriate yaw and roll rotation of the 3D image of maxillomandibular complex provides a symmetric configuration of the facial skeleton and helps to avoid premature contact and bony collisions between the proximal and distal mandibular segments. The Pruzansky-Kaban classification was reevaluated in 3D CT because of higher accuracy than the combination of cephalogram and panorex x-rays [ 14 ]. In terms of soft-tissue, the correction of the occlusal plane and bone configuration does not promise to achieve sufficient facial symmetry. Mann-Whitney U test.
