Treatment Plan of Mandibular Condyle Fractures: Case Report and Literature Review

Endang Sjamsudin [22] | Seto Adiantoro [9]

Abstract: The incidence of mandibular condyle fractures is relatively high due to physical trauma, especially traffic accidents. Condyle fracture treatment needs careful consideration because the condyle is one of the unique parts of the joint. Mistreatment can lead to complications such as ankylosis or impaired mandibular movement. The purpose of writing this article is a case report of condylar fracture treatment planning based on the literature review. It was reported that an 18-year-old male patient came to the emergency department of Hasan Sadikin Hospital in Bandung with bleeding from the oral cavity due to a traffic accident. Clinical symptoms include lacerations on the lips, chin, gums, bleeding, and facial asymmetry. The clinical examination and radiographic diagnosis of this case were bilateral condyle fractures, mandibular symphysis, and dentoalveolar fractures. The treatment plan for this case was Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) due to multiple fractures and condyle neck fracture.
