Abstract

The advent of computed tomography (CT) provided a useful instrument for diagnosis and surgical treatment of patients with craniofacial malformations. The development of software for three-dimensional graphic simulation applied to CT scan has made possible the three-dimensional computerized analysis, surgical planning, and simulation. This kind of analysis is particularly useful in case of complex facial malformations, making reliable a surgical treatment in 1 step. The purpose of this report was to present the diagnosis and treatment planning on a patient with hemimandibular hyperplasia by three-dimensional cephalometric analysis.
