3D Imaging of Hard and Soft Tissue in Orthognathic Surgery

This study is not yet open for patient recruitment

Verified by Radboud University February 2006

Sponsored by: Radboud University
Information provided by: Radboud University
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00285714


The primary objective of this clinical trial is to assess the influence of orthognathic surgery on facial soft tissue, such as changes (volume, linear, angular) of facial hard and soft tissue, in three dimensions, so enabling the setup of 3D normative value tables.

Condition Intervention
Craniofacial Abnormalities
Maxillofacial Abnormalities
Cleft Lip
Cleft Palate
Procedure: 3D stereophotogrammetric imaging
Procedure: 3D CT-imaging with cone-beam CT
Procedure: Case report form

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Diagnostic, Non-Randomized, Open Label, Uncontrolled, Single Group Assignment, Safety/Efficacy Study

Official Title: An Analysis of the Clinical Applicability of a Three-Dimensional Imaging Platform Used to Register the Influence of Orthognathic Surgery on Facial Hard and Soft Tissue in Patients With Congenital Maxillofacial Deformities.

Further study details as provided by Radboud University:
Primary Outcomes: All changes (volumetric, linear or angular) of facial hard and soft tissue caused by orthognathic surgery at 1 months, 6 months, 12 months and 24 months.
Secondary Outcomes: All postoperative changes in functionality at 1 year; patients' satisfaction of facial proportions at 1 year; surgeons' satisfaction of the 3D planning platform at 1 month
Expected Total Enrollment:  450

Study start: February 2006;  Expected completion: December 2011
Last follow-up: December 2010;  Data entry closure: July 2011
