Systematic review of the software used for virtual surgical planning in craniomaxillofacial surgery over the last decade

"The systematic review conducted by A. Tel, L. Arboit, M. De Martino, M. Isola, S. Sembronio, and M. Robiony focuses on the software used for virtual surgical planning (VSP) in craniomaxillofacial surgery from 2010 to 2020. With the increasing adoption of virtual reality technologies, the review aims to provide an overview of the current literature, identify commonly used VSP software, and determine which surgical procedures are more frequently associated with VSP. The search, following PRISMA guidelines, identified 535 articles reporting preoperative VSP implementation. The study categorized 77 different software programs into 10 surgical procedure types, including temporomandibular joint, implants, malformations, reconstruction, oncology, oral surgery, orthognathic surgery, cranial surgery, trauma, and miscellaneous. Materialise suite emerged as the most prevalent VSP tool (36.3%), followed by the Geomagic family. The review also explored associations between specific software packages and surgical procedures. The findings offer valuable insights into the landscape of VSP software in craniomaxillofacial surgery, serving as a foundation for informed and evidence-based use of such tools in the field.”

Application of Angular Measurements in the Correction of the Asymmetric Chin

10 April 2024

"In this article, we will show how angular measurements are important in chin asymmetry treatment planning; we will also discuss the advantages of this planning strategy over the traditional evaluation. The application of angular measurements will be shown in 2 treatment phases: clinical examination and surgical treatment.”

KEY POINTS - Genioplasty procedures are mostly performed as part of the orthognathic surgical correction of dentofacial deformities. - The clinical and radiographic assessment of the chin should, therefore, form part of the overall orthognathic assessment of patients. - Genioplasty is not a substitute for mandibular surgery to place the mandible in the correct sagittal position. - The shape of the chin is just as important as its position. - The surgical technique of the 3-dimensional correction of the chin is discussed in a step-by-step fashion with tips and traps for each step.
