AbstractPurpose: To illustrate the clinical technique of endoscope-assisted rigid fixation in intraoral vertical subsigmoid osteotomy and to report on early postoperative morbidities. Materials and Methods: Six patients presenting with Class III skeletal profile were recruited. The osteotomy was performed through an intraoral route. Rigid fixation was achieved with a 3-mm stab incision located inferior to the ear pinna, allowing access to the transbuccal trocar. A rigid endoscope was introduced intraorally to improve visibility during fixation. Each patient's preoperative and 3-month postoperative radiographs and clinical morbidities (neurosensory status and temporomandibular joint function) were assessed. Results: Most patients (83.3%) fully recovered inferior alveolar nerve function, and 66.6% recovered temporomandibular joint function. The scar from the stab incision was effectively camouflaged by the ear pinna and was not noticeable to the patients. Conclusion: This preliminary study confirms that the application of endoscope-assisted rigid fixation in intraoral vertical subsigmoid osteotomy is clinically feasible. All patients presented with minimal clinical morbidities and good stability at the early postoperative period. © 2010 American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
