GONZALEZ LAGUNAS, J.; HUETO MADRID, J.A.  and  RASPALL MARTIN, G.. Vertical incisions in SARPE. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2005, vol.27, n.3, pp.151-154. ISSN 2173-9161.

Surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion (SARPE) is one of the therapeutic options for the correction of transverse maxillary collapse. We present our initial experience with a technique consisting in a lateral corticotomy of the maxilla plus a transincisal midpalatal osteotomy, both performed through minimal vertical incisions.

Keywords : Palatal expansion; Maxillary osteotomy.
