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.

Target participants
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.

Accreditation: An application has been made to the UEMS-EACCME® for CME accreditation for this event. Please note accreditation has only been applied for, for participation in the full two day course

Day two 'lectures only' registration is available at: AOCMF European Forum—Advances in Orthognathic Surgery (Day II only)
includes lectures, and panel discussion

About the AOCMF European Forum

In its 7th year, the annual AOCMF European forum has proved a great success in bringing together the CMF community. For 2017 the leading experts in the field of orthognathic surgery lead a virtual computer planning practical and hands-on practical exercises on 3D bone models. Thy present key cases on facial asymmetry. Follow their path - plan, treat and discuss a case. Try out the latest technology and discuss the latest techniques during the computer planning and hands-on practical exercises.
