Abstract [en]

Virtual surgical planning (VSP) has the potential to make the work process of oral and maxillofacial surgery more efficient both in terms of performance and cost. 

This study aims to investigate how VSP is used among oral and maxillofacial surgery clinics in Sweden, and to analyse VSP with regard to accuracy, healing, patient communication, and overall operative time. 

A questionnaire was sent to all (n = 34) oral and maxillofacial surgery clinics in Sweden, concerning their knowledge and practice of VSP. A literature review was also carried out to compare the results from clinics in Sweden with the general view. 

94 % of the oral and maxillofacial surgery clinics participated in the study, and all respondents affirmed knowledge of VSP. While 65 % recognise a need for VSP in their work, only 42 % utilise it. The main obstacles reported were economy, training, and availability. This was in high accordance with the literature review. The review also concluded that VSP increased accuracy, reduced planning time, decreased blood loss, and lowered the need for reoperations. 

The presented study shows that VSP is beneficial both pre- and intra-operatively in orthognathic surgery, mandibular reconstruction and implant placement. Accuracy, planning, and patient communication are improved with VSP, both according to studies and questionnaire respondents. However, healing, overall operative time, and cost-benefit did not show strong evidence of improvement with VSP, which might explain the contrasted responses in the questionnaire on these subjects.
