Patient satisfaction survey in orthognathic surgery: a five years retrospective study in San Borja Arriarán Hospital, Santiago de Chile

The aim of this study was to evaluate the number of patients undergoing orthognathic surgery in the last 5 years (between 2005 and 2010). With this database contact the patient and complete a telephonic assessment questionnaires to measure the discomfort during the post operative period and satisfaction with final results.

Material and method: Obtain the database from surgical interventions from 2005 to 2010 including only orthognathic surgery and classifying the sample in two groups. Group I Dentofacial dismorphosis type II (DFD II) and Group 2 Dentofacial dismorphosis type III (DFD III).

The study excluded patients with cleft lip and palate, reconstructive Lefort with bone graft and syndromic deformity.

The patient completed a telephonic assessment questionnaire including domains as pre surgical reasons and expectations, pain, swelling, parestesia, TMJ symptoms in the recovery period, and esthetic and functional changes as a final result.

We tabulated the results by statistical software Systat 13 and χ 2 for data collection. This analysis allowed us to conclude that orthognathic surgery can improve functional and esthetics related to their jaw deformity.

Report the level of satisfaction and discomfort following this procedure. The outcomes obtained will be presented in detail and help us to improve our management before and after surgery.
