About the event
During this seminar and hands-on course, participants will learn the advanced concepts for Orthognathic Surgery including Maxillomandibular Advancement for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSAS). It is composed of short lectures and small group discussions, supplemented with a hands-on section with drybones. Techniques and best practices in orthognathic and craniofacial surgery are taught. Lectures cover advanced digital technologies in orthognathic surgery and management of complex dentofacial deformities and sleep apnea surgery. Patient cases and treatment plans are discussed with expert faculty.
This AO CMF course focuses on state-of-the art techniques and best practices at advanced level in orthognathic, OSAS and craniofacial surgery. Emerging technologies will be introduced and clinical controversies will be addressed. Management of complex dentofacial deformities will be discussed.
This course is for surgeons and trainees in surgery across the craniomaxillofacial specialties (including oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic, and orthodontists). It is targeted at participants who want to improve their knowledge or specialization in the management of complex patient problems in the field of CMF in relation to management of dentofacial deformities using orthognathic, craniofacial and sleep apnea surgery.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Compare the latest advances in presurgical orthodontic treatment in orthognathic and OSAS patients.
- Describe the techniques for digital analysis and planning of OGS and OSAS cases
- Evaluate computerized vs traditional planning and prediction.
- Differentiate sequencing for bimaxillary surgery.
- Compare distraction osteogenesis vs osteotomies for craniofacial deformities.
- Develop a plan to deal with complex orthognathic / OSAS cases (e.g. cleft and condylar pathology).
Chairpersons: With Martin Broome and Florian Thieringer
