Abstract

The radioactive microsphere method was used to quantitate preoperative and postoperative blood flows in macaque monkeys when three different surgical approaches for anterior maxillary osteotomy were performed. Despite distinct variations in flap designs among the experimental groups, preoperative and postoperative determinations of blood flow were essentially unchanged. Results of the study suggest that a palatal, labial, or combined mucoperiosteal pedicle should be adequate to preserve the flow of blood to tissues in the osteotomized segment.
