Many assessments of craniofacial malformations are generally undertaken to assist in surgical intervention including physical examination, cephalometric radiographs in anteroposterior and lateral views, stereolithographic models, and anthropometric measurements integrated with three-dimensional computed tomography (3-D CT) reconstructions to quantify skeletal deformities. In the present report, the use of 3-D Malformation Analysis, a three-dimensional methodology for planning craniofacial operative procedures, is presented. In addition to cephalometric and anthropometric databases, the measurements from 3-D surface reconstructions from CT were used intraoperatively to establish the correct position of skeletal segments.
