Point-of-care computer-assisted design and manufacturing technology and its utility in post-traumatic mandibular reconstruction: An Australian public hospital experience.

SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2022 14;10:2050313X221103733. Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Royal Perth Hospital, Perth, WA, Australia.

Application of load-bearing osteosynthesis plates is the current gold-standard management for complex mandibular fractures. Traditionally, this has required a transcutaneous submandibular approach, carrying with it the risk of damage to the facial nerve and obvious extraoral scarring. The existing literature describes the use of computer-assisted design and manufacturing technology through external vendors to aid transoral mandibular reconstruction. Read More

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2021 Nov 16. Epub 2021 Nov 16.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Faculty of Oral and Dental Medecine, South Valley University, Egypt. Electronic address:

The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of magnesium plates for the management of fractures of the mandibular angle. Fresh sheep hemimandibles were divided into 7 groups and a biomechanical cantilever bending test was used for the groups: Group 1 included fractured hemimandibles fixed at the angle with a single 1mm magnesium miniplate; Group 2 had fixation with a 1mm double magnesium miniplate; Group 3 used a 2mm thick single magnesium miniplate; Group 4 used double 2mm magnesium plates; Group 5 each had a single 1mm thick titanium plate; Group 6 used 1mm thick double titanium plates; and Group 7 comprised intact hemimandibles. Each group was tested using universal testing machine yield loads; yield displacements and stiffness were compared using one way analysis of variance (ANOVA) Group 1 (1mm single magnesium plate) and Group 2 (1mm double magnesium plates) showed lower stability than other groups, while the 2mm magnesium plate showed stability similar to the corresponding 1mm titanium plate.

Customizable interdental splinting for repair of pediatric mandibular fractures in children with mixed dentition: A novel technique.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2022 Jun 14;157:111133. Epub 2022 Apr 14.

Division of Otolaryngology, University of Utah Health, 50N Medical Drive, SOM 3C120, Salt Lake City, UT, 84132, United States.

Objective: Repair of pediatric mandibular fractures (PMFs) can be challenging due to the lack of permanent dentition for immobilization, and the presence of unerupted teeth and growth plates in the mandible limiting the space for fixation. Interdental splinting (IDS) has been advocated to provide temporary fixation without the need for mandibular plating; however, there is sparse description of the surgical methodology, and data on long term outcomes are even more limited. The aim of this study is to present our technique and outcomes using a novel technique for IDS repair of pediatric mandible fractures. Read More

A Modified Minimally Invasive Approach for the Treatment of Mandibular Condylar Fracture.

J Craniofac Surg 2022 Mar-Apr 01;33(2):e217-e218

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Capital Medical University School of Stomatology, Beijing, China.

Abstract: In this study, we introduced a small "V" shaped incision around the ear lobe modified from fact-lift approach to treat the mandibular condylar neck and subcondylar fractures to further minimize and hide the postsurgical scars. A total of 15 cases with mandibular condylar fractures from low levels of condylar neck to high levels of subcondylar region were treated by this approach. An incision was designed from the posterior rim of the tragus down to the anterior skin wrinkle to the ear lobe, surrounding it, continually up and backward for a little distance, forming a "V"-like shape.
