This article describes the authors' approach to correcting dentofacial skeletal deformities requiring multisegmentation of the maxilla. Achieving optimal results requires a close collaboration within the orthodontic-surgical team. The importance of attention to detail in the course of the surgical procedure cannot be overemphasized, because complications of avascular necrosis cannot be corrected easily. The multisegmental maxilla is a valuable technique and adds to the versatility of the LeFort I in the treatment of open bite and transverse discrepancies in dentoalveolar deformities.
