Abstract:The facial proportions of HFM patients are maintained, when not treated, throughout growth. The same proportions return to their original asymmetry after DO. Even though short term aesthetic and psychological advantages of distraction osteogenesis are well accepted, early surgery should only be applied after careful patient selection and honest clarification of the long term recurrence by genetically guided craniofacial growth pattern.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
