Condylar fracture reduction the most common type of mandible fracture presentation occurs with a fracture of mid-symphysis and condyle correction of the midsymphseal fracture with plates and jaw. Summary this paper reviews the literature of evidence based studies and textbooks on the management of mandibular condylar fractures (mcf) it also provides a brief outline of the signs and symptoms as well as the classification system of mcf. Classification and management of mandibular condyle fractures in a tertiary health center babatunde o akinbami , oladimeji a akadiri fractures of the mandibular condyle account for 19% - 52% of all fractures of the mandible in the literature, in our study [1-4],it was about 324% despite the fact that. Discussion facial fractures in children account for the approximately 5% of all fractures a male predilection is seen in all age groups the most common fracture in children requiring hospitalization and/or surgery generally involves the mandible and, in particular, the condyle.
Fractures of the condylar region occur frequently, representing more than 30% of all mandible fractures, and they have been treated with either closed or open reduction techniques, and with similar outcomes 1-3 proponents of each technique cite the advantages and disadvantages of one over the other for example, the open surgeons claim. The incidence of fractures involving the mandibular condyle are stated by most authors to be the second-most common type of fracture of the mandible with male-female ratio 2:1 condylar fracture. The non-surgical treatment of mandibular condylar fractures, may occasionally result in articular imbalance and temporomandibular joint dysfunction this may be attributed to condylar head displacement and resorption, resulting in a shortened vertical ramus and lost posterior vertical facial height.
Mandibular fractures are common and may need emergency treatment, especially if there is any compromise of the airway dislocation of the temporomandibular joint can occur as a result of direct trauma but more often occurs as a result of excessive opening of the mandible, such as when yawning or. Mandibular fractures are more common among fractures in maxillofacial region among mandfracture condylar region is the most frequent site accounting for about 25-35% only facial bone fracture which involve a synovial joint. 135 treatment of extensive comminuted mandibular fracture between both mandibular angles with bilateral condylar fractures using a reconstruction plate: a case report.
• superior sensitivity for mandible fractures than 3 mm ct scans mandibular fractures: a prospective randomized trial j oral maxillofac surg 200664:576-82 • bilateral condyle fractures can result in loss of mandibular height if closed reduction is the only treatment. In 1964, following obwegeser’s principles of avoiding visible scars and using his approach to the mandibular ramus, steinhauser described transoral open reduction and wire osteosynthesis of low condylar neck fractures. Abstract: a pediatric mandibular fracture can cause a child severe pain and the parent or caregiver extreme worry while the pattern of fractures and associated injuries in children is similar to adults, the incidence is low. Fig 5: classification of fractures of the condylar process in accordance with the height of fracture first, a tangent line is placed between the dorsal gauge of the condylar process and the mandibular angle. Background condylar process fractures account for one-third of all mandibular fractures, and the distal fragment is prone to dislocate to the medial side due to the pulling of the lateral pterygoid muscle.
The majority of mandibular condyle fractures involve the condylar neck, with few reports of intracapsular fractures sagittal or vertical fractures of the mandibular condyle and chip fractures of the medial part of the condylar head are rarely int j med sci 2008, 5 314. This study aim to evaluate the clinical and radiographic outcomes of mandibular condylar fractures in pediatrics treated simply with a mandibular manipulation technique accompanied by mouth opening training there is a consensus on nonsurgical approach is a priority for paediatric condylar fractures. Trapezoidal condylar plate: report of 15 cases in the management of mandibular subcondylar fracture geeta singh, shadab mohammad, somdipto das, deepak passi, kuldeep vishwakarma, nitin mahajan department of oral and maxillofacial surgery, king george’s medical university, lucknow, in the management of condylar fracture in the current. Management of mandibular condylar fractures remains a source of ongoing controversy while some condylar fractures can be managed non-surgically, recognition of fracture patterns that require surgical intervention and selection of an appropriate operative procedure are.
Treatment of condylar fractures med oral patol oral cir bucal 2008 sep113(9):e589-94 of unilateral fractures of the mandibular condyle key words: life quality, temporomandibular joint disorders, temporomandibular joint dysfunction syndrome,dental occlusion. The preauricular approach can be used to access and treat fractures in the mandibular condylar head and neck region intraoral approach to condyle the ramus and condyle region can be exposed via an intraoral approach by extending the standard vestibular incision in a superior direction up the ascending ramus. Indications are the management of atrophic edentulous fractures, comminuted fractures, and other complex mandibular fractures in load-sharing osteosynthesis, stability at the fracture site is created by the frictional resistance between the bone ends and the hardware used for fixation.

The study included 605 patients with mandibular condyle fractures, including 316 with extracapsular condylar base fractures [ 1 ] a thorough understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the masticatory system is therefore essential in understanding and treating fractures of the condyle and subcondylar region. The mandibular condyle is the area most frequently affected by mandibular fractures the- se fractures may be treated non-surgically, with closed reduction, or with open reduction. Condylar fractures are the most common pediatric mandibular fracture and present bilaterally in 20% of cases 7 prior to age 6, most fractures are intracapsular, whereas after that age they occur most frequently in the neck of the mandible.
The treatment for condylar neck and subcondylar fractures re- mains one of the most controversial topics of mandible surgery despite the high incidence of these fractures [1. Implementation into the management of a condylar fracture an accurate appreciation of the location of the mandibular condylar fracture assists with the determination of either an operative or nonoperative management regimen. The incidence of condylar fractures is high, but the management of fractures of the mandibular condyle continues to be controversial historically, maxillomandibular fixation, external fixation, and surgical splints with internal fixation systems were the techniques commonly used in the treatment of the fractured mandible.
