The hospital stay was 24 hours or less in 12 of the cases and was 12 hours or less in two cases; these last two cases were done on an outpatient basis. The surgery is currently performed without complications and with techniques that optimize the procedure [ 4 ]; however, postoperative TMJ function has been a matter of limited research [ 6 ].

It can also be performed in conjunction with orthognatic surgery. However, 9 patients presented limitations of the temporal branch of the facial nerve VII ; when zygomatic branch was involved in neuropraxia, the initial protocol with physiotherapy was sufficient for improve this function showing without problem after 3 month.

The technique consists of a preauricular or endaural access that reaches the mandibular condyle in order to then perform the condylar osteotomy, removing the upper segment [ 5 ].
