- Posttraumatic Lateral Dislocation of Mandibular Condyle: A Proposed New Classification with Report of 14 Dislocated Condyles Download PDF
Lateral dislocation of the intact mandibular condyle is a relatively uncommon clinical
condition. Since the first description and classification of these dislocations given by
Allen and Young, few classification systems have been proposed in literature with
incorporation of different patterns of dislocations identified over the years. We share
our clinical experience of nine cases of such dislocations with 14 dislocated condyles,
and on the basis of clinical and radiological findings coupled with the review of existing
classification systems, we propose a new classification system which includes all the
possible patterns of such dislocations overcoming the major shortcomings of preexisting
classification systems identified by the authors.
- A Clinical and Radiological Investigation of the Use of Dermal Fat Graft as an Interpositional Material in Temporomandibular Joint Ankylosis Surgery
Management of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis is mainly through surgical intervention. Interpositional materials
are a necessity when it comes to prevention of TMJ re-ankylosis after arthroplasty. Early aggressive postoperative physiotherapy
is essential for the prevention or treatment of TMJ hypomobility or ankyloses. Recently, it has been shown that
abdominal dermis fat helps promote smooth, pain-free joint function and it is stable after interposition and less prone to
fragmentation. The purpose of this study was to assess that whether dermal fat is a good choice of interpositional material
when it comes to decreased pain perception during aggressive physiotherapy after release of ankyloses thus ensuring good
compliance by the patient. We also assessed the fate of the graft material on computed tomography to evaluate any
volume changes if occurred after interposition.
