Condylar hyperplasia: remodeling of facial structures following condylectomy. Report of two cases

Azaz/Nitzan/Brin

Condylectomy accompanied by either simultaneous or postponed surgical correction of facial asymmetry is the treatment of choice in cases of condylar hyperplasia in its active stage. However, spontaneous remodeling processes in facial structures following the elimination of an actively growing hyperplastic condyle may bring about improvement in symmetry without further surgical intervention. Two cases are presented.
