Perioperative Management in Orthognathic Surgery

This project was proposed by a second degree student and will follow a similar structure to the cervicofacial infections project. Its aims include identifying variations in perioperative manage- ment of ortohgnathic surgery patients across the UK, focussing on thromboprophylaxis, prophy- lactic antibiotics, steroid use, day case surgery and 3D planning. The first systematic review (into thromboprophylaxis in orthognathic surgery patients) is in press with BJOMS.

We will be presenting on the project, and gathering some initial data, at the FiTs conference in January, and hope to work with the BAOMS deformity SSIG to gather information on current reported practice.
