Traumatic Anterosuperior Dislocation of the Intact Mandibular Condyle into the Temporal Fossa.

Craniomaxillofac Trauma Reconstr 2018 Dec 27;11(4):296-301. Epub 2017 Oct 27.

Odontology School of Pontificial Catholic University of Minas Gerais (PUC - MG), Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dislocation, or luxation, occurs when the condyle crosses the articular eminence in such a way that it does not return to its correct anatomical position, unless aided by a reduction in external forces for TMJ. The diagnosis of condylar luxation is clinical; however, image exams are important in classifying the types of condylar luxation and associated fractures. Displacement of the TMJ can occur due to either an exaggerated mouth opening or a forced opening and occasionally is associated with a high-impact trauma to the jaw, the latter being an extremely rare condition.

Updated Review of Traumatic Dislocation of the Mandibular Condyle Into the Middle Cranial Fossa.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 20;77(1):132.e1-132.e16. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Associate Professor, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, School of Dentistry, Universidade de Pernambuco, and Staff of Service of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Hospital da Restauração, Recife, Brazil.

Purpose: Traumatic dislocation of the mandibular condyle into the middle cranial fossa (DMCCF) is a rare event after maxillofacial trauma. Treatment may be performed with closed or open reduction (with or without craniotomy), and arthroplasty procedures might be necessary for long-standing cases. The aims of this study were to perform an integrative review of traumatic DMCCF cases reported in an electronic database and to report a case in which cerebrospinal fluid leakage occurred after open treatment.

The Hippocratic Method for the Reduction of the Mandibular Dislocation, an Ancient Greek Procedure Still in Use in Maxillofacial Surgery.

Acta Med Acad 2018 May;47(1):139-143

Department of Anatomy, Medical School Democritus University of Thrace, Alexandroupolis, Greece.

Mandibular dislocation remains an acute medical condition in maxillofacial surgery. Since the Hippocratic era its reduction has been performed exactly in the same way it is now performed in modern surgery. We report an example of an elderly female patient with bilateral mandibular dislocation, who came to our department and was treated under sedation using the Hippocratic bimanual intraoral technique by two medical personnel, depicting the timeless usage of the method.

Histological findings in TMJ treated with high condilectomy for internal derangement.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2018 Aug 5;46(8):1185-1191. Epub 2018 Jun 5.

Department of Medical-Surgical Sciences and Biotechnologies, Faculty of Pharmacy and Medicine, University of Rome "Sapienza", Italy.

Intra-Articular Temporo-Mandibular Disorders (TMD) are characterized by displacement of the disc that causes the condyles to slip back over the disc thus resulting in TMJ discal damage and erosion of the condyle's bone. The etiology of temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is multidimensional: biomechanical, neuromuscular, bio-psychosocial and biological factors may contribute to the disorder. The study involved 46 joints in 27 patients with a diagnosis of Intra-Articular Temporo-Mandibular Disorders (TMD) according to Axis I of Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (DC/TMD) for Clinical and Research Applications and underwent surgery between 2011 and 2014.

Correlation between direction and severity of temporomandibular joint disc displacement and reduction ability during mouth opening.

J Oral Rehabil 2017 Dec 6;44(12):957-963. Epub 2017 Oct 6.

Independent Unit of Propedeutics of Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology, Medical University of Lublin, Lublin, Poland.

The most common temporomandibular joint (TMJ) internal derangement is an abnormal relationship of the disc with respect to the mandibular condyle, articular eminence and glenoid fossa-disc displacement. The aim of our study was to analyse the correlation between partial/complete disc displacement in the intercuspal position (IP) and its reduction in the open-mouth position (OMP) in both oblique sagittal and coronal planes on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with temporomandibular disorders. Multisection MRI analysis of 382 TMJs was conducted in 191 patients with disc displacement according to the RDC/TMD criteria (148 women, 43 men; aged 14-60 years). Read More

Conservative Management of Chronic TMJ Dislocation: An Old Technique Revived.

J Maxillofac Oral Surg 2015 Mar 1;14(Suppl 1):267-70. Epub 2013 Feb 1.

Department of OMFS, College of Dental Surgery, B P Koirala Institute of Health Science, Dharan, Nepal.

A temporomadibular joint (TMJ) dislocation is a condition in which the mandibular condyle is displaced from its articulations and requires manipulation by another individual to return to its normal position. TMJ dislocation is subdivided into acute, chronic recurrent or chronic persistent dislocations. Conservative (closed) or surgical (open) manipulation may be required to reduce the dislocated condyle.

Treatment of traumatic dislocation of the mandibular condyle into the cranial fossa: development of a probable treatment algorithm.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2015 Jul 7;44(7):864-70. Epub 2015 Feb 7.

Department of Neurosurgery, Peking University First Hospital, Xicheng District, Beijing, PR China.

This study summarizes our experience of treating three rare cases of traumatic superior dislocation of the mandibular condyle into the cranial fossa and provides a potential treatment algorithm. Between the years 2002 and 2012, three patients with traumatic superior dislocation of the mandibular condyle into the cranial fossa were admitted to our department. After evaluating the interval from injury to treatment, the associated facial injuries including neurological complications, and the computed tomography imaging findings, an individualized treatment plan was developed for each patient.

Contrast analysis of open reduction and internal fixation and non-surgical treatment of condylar fracture: a meta-analysis.

J Craniofac Surg 2014 Nov;25(6):2077-80

From the *Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, School and Hospital of Stomatology, Wuhan University; †Key Laboratory of Oral Biomedical Engineering (Wuhan University), Ministry of Education, Wuhan, China; and ‡Department of Stomatology, First Hospital of Wuhan, Wuhan, China.

Background: To take surgical treatment or non-surgical treatment on condylar fracture, clinicians are faced with a difficult choice. Traditional treatment on condylar fracture advocated non-surgical treatment, including intermaxillary traction and intermaxillary fixation, which relies mainly on condylar rebuilt. In recent years, with the development of rigid internal fixation, open reduction and internal fixation technique has been well applied in the treatment of condylar fracture and has obtained an optimistic therapeutic effect.

Immunohistochemical expression of matrix metalloprotease-2 and matrix metalloprotease-9 in the disks of patients with temporomandibular joint dysfunction.

J Oral Pathol Med 2015 Jan 28;44(1):75-9. Epub 2014 Jul 28.

Department of Oral Sciences, Oral Surgery, Marquette University, School of Dentistry, Milwaukee, WI, USA.

Purpose: Matrix metalloproteases (MMPs) are tissue-remodeling enzymes that function during the remodeling process, such as in immune-inflammatory diseases. Metalloprotease-2 (MMP-2) and metalloprotease-9 (MMP-9) are gelatinases that degrade several types of extracellular matrix collagen. It is hypothesized that in temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, MMP-2 and MMP-9 expression levels may be elevated. Read More

From the *Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Dicle University Medical Faculty, Diyarbakir; †Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Istanbul University, Istanbul Medical Faculty, Istanbul, Turkey.

Superolateral and anterolateral dislocations of the intact mandibular condyle can be easily overlooked because of their rarity among maxillofacial injuries. In this report, we present the surgery of delayed anterosuperior dislocation of intact mandibular condyle into the temporal fossa. A 17-year-old adolescent girl with anterosuperior dislocation of left intact condyle and associated mandible and zygomatic body fracture underwent surgery 33 days after trauma because of priority accompanied life-threatening intracranial and intra-abdominal injuries.
