One hundred three patients underwent a modified sagittal ramus split osteotomy of the mandible. Maintenance of the temporomandibular joint relationship prior to the procedure was achieved postoperatively by using a three-dimensionally adaptable fixation bar. Techniques were also developed to avoid damage to the inferior alveolar nerve during the osteotomy and application of lag screws. These procedures avoided the disadvantages of lag screw osteosynthesis, and reduced relapse.
