Abstract: Objectives: To investigate the assessment, skeletal deformity and type of procedure of orthognathic surgery patients, as well as their functional needs, treated in a Royal Medical Services hospital. Materials and methods: This study included the clinical records of 100 patients (57 females and 43 males) who had orthognathic surgery in the period from March 2013 to October 2019. Skeletal deformity, procedure type and Index of Orthognathic Functional Treatment Need (IOFTN) score were also recorded. Results: Overall, procedures were distributed as follows among the included male patients: 48.3% of them were treated with bimaxillary surgery (Bimax) procedures, 23.2% were treated with LeFort I procedures, 23.2% were treated with bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) procedures and 5% treated with other procedures. As for the included female patients, 40.3% of them were treated with Bimax procedures, 24.5% were treated with BSSO procedures and 17.5% were treated with LeFort I procedures. Regarding skeletal deformity, the results found that 31 included female patients had Class II malocclusion, while 24 of them had Class III malocclusion. As for the included male patients, nine of them had Class II malocclusion, while 34 of them had Class III malocclusion. There were gender differences (P>.05) for skeletal deformity. Also, there were gender differences for procedure type. Conclusion: It was identified by retrospective assessment employing IOFTN that 95% of patients had functional needs that were considered great or very great, but more research employing IOFTN assessing orthognathic surgery needs are needed. It was also found that the most common skeletal deformity in this study was Class III malocclusion, followed by Class II malocclusion.
