22 septorhinoplasties were performed in conjunction with orthognathic surgery, and followed for at least 12 months. No significant difference could be established between 15 cases done with a LeFort I and 7 cases done with isolated sagittal split osteotomies. Rigid bicortical fixation of the mandible was required to change the endotracheal tube from nose to mouth. Plating of the maxilla is recommended to achieve a stable bony support for the nose. Patient satisfaction and perception were surveyed. Clinical results are presented with pre and post-operative photographs, along with mean data for the total group. © 1988 Munksgaard International Publishers Ltd.
