Modifications of the sagittal split osteotomy of the mandible have essentially reduced the major drawbacks of the procedure, such as condyle displacement, short-term skeletal relapse, and protracted maxillomandibular fixation and mental nerve dysesthesia. These techniques have proved effective over a period of 4 years in fifty-seven patients treated.
