Abstract: The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of complications after orthognathic surgery comparing piezo-surgery with conventional osteotomy.We conducted this study according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines. We performed a systematic search of PubMed, Scopus, Science Direct, Lilacs, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Google Scholar, and OpenThesis to identify randomized and nonrandomized controlled trials (RCTs and nRCTs, respectively) comparing patient outcomes (operative time, intraoperative blood loss, postoperative swelling, pain, neurosensitivity) after orthognathic surgery by piezoelectric or conventional osteotomy. We pooled individual results of continuous and dichotomous outcome data using the mean difference (MD) and risk difference (RD) with the 95% confidence interval, respectively.Three RCTs and five nRCTs were selected. No difference in operative time was observed between piezo-surgery and conventional osteotomies. We found a decrease of intraoperative blood loss with piezo-surgery (MD?-128?mL; P?
