Title: Cephalometric Norms for Orthognathic Surgery in a Sample of Sudanese Adults
Author: Gilada, Wadie Magdi Wadie
Abstract: Background: Cephalometric norms for orthognathic are essential in the diagnosis and planning of craniofacial surgeries. Several analysis have been proposed for different populations, due to ethnic and racial differences. The aim of this study is to determine the skeletal and dental cephalometric norms for orthognathic surgery in a sample of Sudanese adults. Methods: A total of 106 digital cephalometric radiographs (48 males and 58 females) that fulfill the inclusion criteria were selected from the Orthodontic Department Faculty of Dentistry University of Khartoum. The age range from 17 to 25years was traced using the Vistadent digital software. The mean values of the hard and dental measurements were compared with those of European-American adults using Burstone analysis (COGS), as well as the comparison between Sudanese males and females using SPSS program (P = 0.05). Result: Sudanese had significant statistically differences in cephalometric norms for orthognathic surgery (P < 0.05) compared to those of European Americans in all study variables except in (N-A-Pg), (N-A), (N-B), (N-Pog), (Ar-Go-Gn), (AB-OP) in males, (PTM-N), (N-B), (N-Pog), (N-ANS, ANS-Gn) and (Ar-Go-Gn) in females (P > 0.05). A significant statistical difference between genders (P < 0.05) founded in (N-A-Pg), (N-Pog), (HP to Go-Gn) and (OP to HP). Conclusion: This study is useful in providing Cephalometric noms for orthognathic surgery which helps in diagnosis and treatment plan of Sudanese population
