Background: The treatment for severe OSAS includes maxillomandibular advancement surgical option in selected cases. The aim of this study was to evaluate the post-operative impact of bimaxillary surgery on satisfaction and consequently the quality of life of these patients. Methods: This study included 18 patients with severe OSAS who received maxillomandibular advancement surgery. Patients were divided into Group A (operated by CAD/CAM) and Group B (conventional surgery). The impact of bimaxillary surgery on satisfaction and quality of life of these patients was evaluated by utilizing post-operative life quality and Rustemeyer's patient-satisfaction-based survey. Results: A total of 18 adult OSAS patients (Group A: 11 patients, Group B: 7 patients) with a mean age of 44.39 years (SD +/- 9.43) were included. Mean follow-up period was 32.64 months (SD +/- 21.91). No intra-operative complications were seen in any patients. Post-operative complication was seen in one patient and the mandible did not integrate. According to the results, overall post-operative satisfaction score was 79.72% (SD +/- 9.96). There was no significant difference among those in Group A and Group B. Conclusions: Maxillomandibular advancement surgery seems to be beneficial in terms of patients' satisfaction in severe adult OSAS patients and can be considered as a valuable option in selected cases.

Abstract

Background: The treatment for severe OSAS includes maxillomandibular advancement surgical option in selected cases. The aim of this study was to evaluate the post-operative impact of bimaxillary surgery on satisfaction and consequently the quality of life of these patients. Methods: This study included 18 patients with severe OSAS who received maxillomandibular advancement surgery. Patients were divided into Group A (operated by CAD/CAM) and Group B (conventional surgery). The impact of bimaxillary surgery on satisfaction and quality of life of these patients was evaluated by utilizing post-operative life quality and Rustemeyer's patient-satisfaction-based survey. Results: A total of 18 adult OSAS patients (Group A: 11 patients, Group B: 7 patients) with a mean age of 44.39 years (SD +/- 9.43) were included. Mean follow-up period was 32.64 months (SD +/- 21.91). No intra-operative complications were seen in any patients. Post-operative complication was seen in one patient and the mandible did not integrate. According to the results, overall post-operative satisfaction score was 79.72% (SD +/- 9.96). There was no significant difference among those in Group A and Group B. Conclusions: Maxillomandibular advancement surgery seems to be beneficial in terms of patients' satisfaction in severe adult OSAS patients and can be considered as a valuable option in selected cases.
