Project Description

This web-based module enhances orthognathic surgical education for residents of oral and maxillofacial surgery via interactive surgical models and instructional animations. Orthognathic osteotomies are versatile, commonly performed procedures that present higher risks for neurovascular injury due to the limited visualization of critical anatomy within the operating field. This module provides a reliable and accessible reference for the surgical residents to visualize relevant surgical anatomy and review specific techniques of three different osteotomy procedures (Le Fort I, bilateral sagittal split osteotomy, genioplasty).
