Mandibular Fracture After Endosseous Implant Placement in Conjunction With Inferior Alveolar Nerve Transposition: A Patieit Treatment Report

Kan/Lozada/Boyne/Goodacre/Rungcharassaeng


PMID: 9337027

A patient with a severely atrophic right posterior mandible had three endosseous implants placed in conjunction with transposition of the inferior alveolar nerve. Three weeks following implant placement surgery, the patient experienced a spontaneous fracture of the mandible involving the two anterior implants. The two implants were removed, and the fracture was treated with open reduction and fixation with titanium mesh. The fracture healed, and the posterior implant integrated. This report suggests that the buccolingual and superior-inferior position of the mandibular canal can increase the possibility of mandibular fracture by increasing the size of the buccal cortical plate that is removed to expose the nerve during surgery.
