Summary of "Which Factors Affect Length of Stay and Readmission Rate in Mandibular Distraction Osteogenesis?"

Because Robin sequence (RS) is clinically heterogeneous, there is uncertainty as to whether different presentations yield different perioperative outcomes. The purpose of this study was to evaluate factors associated with length of stay and readmission rate after mandibular distraction osteogenesis (MDO) for RS.
