Özet

Purpose: Pterygomaxillary separation (PMS) is considered the main reason for serious complications associated with Le Fort I osteotomy. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether a piezo surgery, ultrasonic bone scalpel, or conventional bur used in Le Fort I osteotomy has an influence on PMS patterns.
