Pages: 147 - 150

Objective: To evaluate the long-term results of open reduction and rigid internal fixation for treatment of dislocated condylar process fractures.
Methods: Twenty-five patients with dislocated condylar fracture who underwent open reduction and rigid internal fixation were followed up for an average of 4.5 years and evaluated on the basis of occlusion, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) function and radiographs.
Results: Clinically, both occlusion and TMJ function were satisfactory. Generally, the dislocated condyles were well repositioned into the glenoid fossa after rigid internal fixation and remained in the position during the follow-up on the radiographs.
Conclusion: Open reduction and rigid internal fixation could achieve satisfactory results for the treatment of dislocated condylar fractures.

Keywords: condylar process fracture, rigid internal fixation
