Although rigid fixation of maxillary osteotomies has several advantages, it is technically more demanding than wire osteosynthesis. Unsatisfactory postsurgical results can be traced to any of three phases of surgical treatment: preoperative, interoperative, and postoperative. The authors review these three phases of treatment and present cases in which the desired outcome was not initially achieved. The subsequent management of the patients is discussed.
