Mid-facial advancement and mandibular advancement to alleviate upper airway obstruction

Distraction osteogenesis has facilitated advancement of the craniofacial skeleton that has enabled the correction of the deficient mid-facial in syndromic craniosynostosis patients as well as lengthening the micrognathic mandible in conditions such as Pierre Robin sequence with associated upper airway obstruction that cannot be otherwise managed without a tracheosomy.
