Crouzon syndrome is a genetic disease that is transferred by autosomal dominant inheritance. Patients with this syndrome have craniosynostosis, hypertelorism, orbital proptosis, mid-face hypoplasia, mandibular prognathism, and concave facial profile. A number of surgical treatments are used to improve facial contours, and to correct dental and maxillary relationships. Orthognathic surgery is routinely used in the treatment of these patients. We present a female patient with Crouzon syndrome treated with Le Fort I and bilateral sagittal split osteotomy. Previously, surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion (SARME) surgery was performed to the patient by separating the pterygomaxillary junction under general anesthesia. Down fracture was performed during the Le Fort I osteotomy without the need to separate the pterygomaxillary junction again. The facial appearance was improved with bilateral sagittal split osteotomy, and skeletal malocclusion between the jaws was treated.

The care and treatment of a convalescent patient, especially that of a patient after surgery.
Surgery performed to repair or correct the skeletal anomalies of the jaw and its associated dental and facial structures (e.g. CLEFT PALATE).
Withholding or withdrawal of a particular treatment or treatments, often (but not necessarily) life-prolonging treatment, from a patient or from a research subject as part of a research protocol. The concept is differentiated from REFUSAL TO TREAT, where the emphasis is on the health professional's or health facility's refusal to treat a patient or group of patients when the patient or the patient's representative requests treatment. Withholding of life-prolonging treatment is usually indexed only with EUTHANASIA, PASSIVE, unless the distinction between withholding and withdrawing treatment, or the issue of withholding palliative rather than curative treatment, is discussed.
The period of care beginning when the patient is removed from surgery and aimed at meeting the patient's psychological and physical needs directly after surgery. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
A surgical specialty concerned with correcting conditions related to malposition of the jawbones and other related MAXILLOFACIAL ABNORMALITIES (e.g., CLEFT PALATE; RETROGNATHISM).
