The distraction osteogenesis can not only be used to effectively correct severe mandibular micrognathia deformity, but also can cure its accompanying OSAS. The procedure is simple, with low risk, high curative rate, low relapse rate, and stable result. Up to now, it is the most effective method in the treatment of this difficult and complicated kind of disorder.
