|Abstract:||Review question/objective: What is the effectiveness of mandibular distraction osteogenesis on airway patency and long-term development in children born with upper airway obstruction secondary to micrognathia? More specifically: Does mandibular distraction result in improved short- and long-term outcomes compared with tracheostomy? What is the ideal daily rate of mandibular distraction, and does the ideal rate differ between age groups?|
