This AOCMF European Forum—Advances in Orthognathic Surgery is a 2 day course and brings together leading experts in the field of orthognathic surgery. Practical exercises involve computer based virtual planning, and hands-on sessions on 3D bone models. Strong emphasis will be given to the workflow optimization for the correction of patients with facial asymmetry. Workflow from preoperative imaging and cast-analysis to virtual modelling, prefabrication of surgical guides, and the use of intraoperative navigation will be demonstrated.
Day one: Facial Asymmetry - Computer Planning and Workflow Optimization (with Practical Exercises)
Participants will be trained for virtually 3D planning surgical cases using planning software, model surgery on 3D CMF bones and learn about intra-operative navigation. Routine orthognathic cases but also facial asymmetric cases will be analyzed and planned.
Practicals are limited to only 40 participants (2 persons per workstation in small groups)
Day two: Facial Asymmetry - Surgical and Orthodontic Aspects (with Cases and Panel Discussions)
This is an intense day of lectures, panel discussions and group learning. Surgical and orthodontic aspects of facial asymmetry will be highlighted with lectures and discussions.
This course is aimed at fully qualified medical specialists in craniomaxillofacial surgery, orthognathic surgery and orthodontists. It is suited for those who have a special interest in computer-assisted surgery, and are involved in the management and surgical treatment of patients with dentofacial deformity, and facial asymmetry in particular.
