The question of checking the position of the condylar fragment in sagittal osteotomy of the jaw is still controversial. The author describes an original device used by the Department of Maxillo-Facial Surgery at the University of Turin which allows precise replacing of condylar fragments. This enables a semirigid fixing of the jaw and rapid functional recovery with long-term stability of the new therapeutic position.
