Mandibular Distraction Osteogenesis in Robin Sequence Using Three-Dimensional Analysis and Planning.
Summary: This article discusses the use of mandibular distraction osteogenesis in the treatment of patients with Robin sequence.
Conclusion: The use of mandibular distraction osteogenesis has excellent outcomes in the treatment of patients with Robin sequence.
The optimal management of patients with Robin sequence may include neonatal mandibular distraction osteogenesis, which has been used to achieve excellent functional and aesthetic outcomes in appropriate patients. This article and video vignette depict the treatment of micrognathia and airway obstruction secondary to Robin sequence, demonstrating the planning and surgical approach of the senior author (D.M.S.) using mandibular distraction osteogenesis.
