We have examined these data: clinical evaluation of patient, pre and post-surgical orthodontic treatment, minum age for surgical correction, surgical tecnique, use of osseus-synthesis with wire or RIF for mobile segment osseus stabilization, use of reference articular plaque and the possible association of additional surgical tecnique during the same time of maxillomandibular correction. We have made in all patients orthognatic surgery, which consist in osteotomy Le Fort I for upper jaw and sagittal osteotomy for mandible.
