Abstract: Bilateral structures of the normal mandible were asymmetrical. After mandibular bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy, variation of the force arms of closing and opening muscle groups of the jaw was one of the major factors influencing mandibular stability. Virtual surgery is a promising strategy for preoperative planning to improve surgical success and reduce complications.
