The treatment of mandibular condyle fractures has been the subject of considerable discussion, especially whether open or closed treatment should be used. There is a need for practical,evidence-based guidelines, and both objective and subjective parameters should be measured. To date, fewstudies have considered clinically relevant subjective parameters. This study was performed to evaluate the outcomes of the treatment of condylar fractures using the Mandibular Function Impairment Questionnaire (MFIQ) and the Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (DC/TMD) and to compare the outcomes of open and the closed treatment...

PURPOSE: The aim of this experimental study was to investigate the role of the fibrous layer of the condylar head in the formation of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis in a sheep model of intracapsular condylar fracture. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Six growing Xiao-wei Han sheep were used in the study, and bilateral TMJ surgery was performed in each sheep. In the left TMJ, sagittal fracture of the condyle, removal of the fibrous layer of the condylar head, excision of two thirds of the disc, and removal of the fibrous zone of the glenoid fossa were performed...

Despite condylar fractures representing one of the most common sites of mandibular fractures, intracranial condylar dislocation is a rare event. In this article, the authors report 2 patients. The first patient is a young female with signs and symptoms as commonly reported in the literature. The second patient reports the consequences of a delayed diagnosis of intracranial condylar fracture dislocation. Both patients underwent surgical treatment. These patients are discussed with a review of the literature, noting biomechanics and mechanism of injury, diagnostic methods, and the treatment for these fractures...

The use of virtual surgical planning and computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing has previously been reported to enhance the planning for the reconstruction of mandibular continuity defects and to reduce surgical time. Reported is a case of a large keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KOT) affecting right hemimandible including the condylar neck. This case was initially reconstructed with a condyle-bearing reconstruction plate, but because of fatigue fracture 15 years later, a new reconstruction with a custom-made total joint temporomandibular prosthesis was performed...

Surgical treatment of AO/OTA type 33-C fractures is a therapeutic challenge despite advances in surgical instruments and techniques. We introduce a novel surgical technique named transient retrograde interfragmentary compression (TRIC) to help intraarticular fragment reduction in AO/OTA type 33-C fracture. We inserted a partial threaded 7.0-cannulated screw with a washer along the transepicondylar axis from the medial femoral epicondyle during the articular block reduction process of AO/OTA type 33-C fractures to strengthen the compressive force between the condylar fragments and to enhance the handling of the articular block fragment in the alignmental correction stage...

BACKGROUND: There is considerable controversy about whether condylar fractures should be treated open or closed. Even when there is a clear indication for open treatment, the appropriate approach opens another debate. PURPOSE: To provide a clear overview on the complications of extraoral approaches to condylar fractures. METHODS: Systematic literature search of all indexed years on PubMed, Medline, and Embase. For detailed analysis, we selected 70 studies...

In 2009, a pit burial dated to the Bronze Age was excavated in Monte do Gato de Cima 3 (Portugal). The purpose of this paper is to describe the pathological absence of the left mandibular condyle noted in an adult male skeleton and to discuss possible diagnoses, including subcondylar fracture, cystic defect, congenital absence, condylar aplasia and mandibular condylysis. The most likely explanation for the pathological alteration is subcondylar fracture with non-union. Although the occurrence of non-union and slight osteoarthritic alterations in the left glenoid fossa were evident, this mandible was likely functional, as can be inferred from dental wear and muscle attachment sites...

Condylar fractures account for one third of all mandibular fractures. Despite being highly prevalent, treatment of these fractures remains controversial because of the sequelae of inadequate closed reduction and the risks associated with open repair. Multiple studies attempt to compare closed reduction with maxillomandibular fixation (MMF), open reduction with internal fixation, and endoscopic reduction with internal fixation. In our practice, we favor closed reduction with MMF except in cases of significantly displaced subcondylar fractures...

Continuing controversy exists for the choice of implant for treating A3 trochanteric hip fractures so we undertook a systematic review of randomised controlled trials from the year 2000 onwards that have compared an intramedullary nail with an extramedullary fixation implant for the treatment of these fractures. Data on the occurrence of any fracture healing complications was extracted and the results combined to calculate Peto odd ratio. Nine studies involving 370 fractures were identified. Three studies involving 105 fractures compared an intramedullary nail with a static fixation (condylar, blade or locking plate)...

This study aims to identify and distinguish various factors that may influence the clinical symptoms (limited mouth opening and malocclusion) in patients with maxillofacial fractures. From January 2000 to December 2009, 963 patients with maxillofacial fractures were enrolled in this statistical study to aid in evaluating the association between various risk factors and clinical symptoms. Patients with fractured posterior mandibles tended to experience serious limitation in mouth opening. Patients who sustained coronoid fractures have the highest risk of serious limitation in mouth opening (OR = 9...

The great incidence and controversies related to the diagnosis, treatment, surgical accesses, and type of osteosynthesis materials confer an outstanding role to condylar fractures among facial fractures. Plate configurations, with diverse formats and sizes, may be used to surgically resolve condylar fractures. With the purpose of improving the advantages and minimizing the disadvantages of fixation techniques, the neck screw was developed aiming at the needed stabilization to render a correct fixation through a system of dynamic compression...

Objectives: The goal of this study was to evaluate the rates of complications, morbidity, and safety with the transparotid approach. Materials and Methods: A retrospective study was conducted and consisted of 53 surgically treated patients in the past five years for low condylar neck and subcondylar fractures. Only patients with malocclusion and who underwent open reduction with internal fixation with the retromandibular transparotid approach were included. The examined parameters were postoperative suboptimal occlusion, deflection, saliva fistula, and facial nerve weakness...

OBJECTIVE: The current classification of mandibular condyle fractures as basal, low neck, and high neck as reported by Loukota et al. (Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 43:72-73, 2005) and Neff et al. (Craniomaxillofac Trauma Reconstr 7:S44-S58, 2014) has a weakness. Nearly no high-neck fractures are reported (they are typically classified as type C head fractures) contrary to basal condylar fractures, which are overestimated (nearly all low-neck fractures are classified as basal). The aim of this study is to present a modified AO/SORG classification of mandibular condyle fractures...

Pseudoaneurysms are an uncommon complication of mandibular condylar-subcondylar fractures; however, if present, their recognition and management is mandatory to avoid life-threatening situations. The authors report a case of internal maxillary artery pseudoaneurysm rupture that occurred after an open reduction and internal fixation of a mandibular subcondylar fracture, along with a review of the literature.
