This movie gives an overview on computer assisted maxillofacial surgery planning. A mobilization of the upper and lower jaw with combined relocation of the mobilized bone parts is demonstrated. The resulting arrangement of facial soft tissue is simulated with finite-element methods on a tetrahedral grid of the virtual patient’s head, thus yielding a pre-operative prediction of the post-operative outcome.

This film is included in the compilation MathFilm 2008 DVD.
