Orthognathic surgery is the standard procedure to correct congenital, developmental, or acquired dentofacial deformities. The maxillomandibular relationship corrected by orthognathic surgery can improve facial esthetics, masticatory function, articulation, and breathing. The most common types of osteotomies include the combination of Le Fort I osteotomy, bilateral sagittal split mandibular ramus osteotomy, and genioplasty. High-resolution low-dose computed tomography is useful for evaluating the facial skeleton and soft tissues after surgery as well as for depicting a variety of possible complications. This article reviews the postoperative imaging findings of the most common orthognathic surgeries and their potential complications on multidetector-row computed tomography.Le texte complet de cet article est disponible en PDF.
