Nowadays distraction osteogenesis (DOG) is certainly an established technique and has various safe fields of application. For many years Patrick Diner (Paris, F) and Bodo Hoffmeister (Berlin, D) have been accompanying and encouraging progress of distraction and its related devices.

Now it was time to say goodbye to both loyal SORG members retiring from their professional career. Chairman Alberto Bianchi (Catania, I) felt much honored to chair this farewell symposium in the city of Paris where Paul Tessier pioneered craniofacial surgery almost 50 years ago. The SORG Craniofacial section together with various French and international speakers offered a comprehensive overview on their individual professional expertise on different distraction procedures together with an outlook on future trends. The very atmospheric and historical hall in the “Académie Nationale de Chirurgie” was almost too small to accommodate the 80 participants visiting the event.
