Sagittal split osteotomy has been used to address skeletal deformities involving the mandible. The versatility of the procedure has already been established in the past. This modality has rarely been used as access osteotomy. This article reviews the usage of sagittal split osteotomy for access to various benign pathologies which mainly involves the posterior mandible. The article also discusses various modalities which are used in order to address deeply seated pathologies. The various indications and anatomic consideration for using sagittal split osteotomy along with the advantages of this procedure over other procedures have been discussed.

Keywords: Sagittal split osteotomy, Access osteotomy, Bilateral Sagittal Split Osteotomy.
