Management of Compound Mandibular Fractures with Miniplate and Monocortical Screws in 8-Year-Old Male Child: A Case Presentation

Dr. Vamshi Bharadwaj

Abstract: The main differentiating feature of the paediatric mandible is its decreased size, which affects both the open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF). The cervically bulbous short stature primary teeth in the dental segment could pose a challenge for the traditional maxillomandibular fixation. The damaged area is more likely to consolidate and remodel quickly due to greater osteogenic potential of the bones. While stabilising the damaged segments, the mixed dentition of the ugly duckling stage increases the burden. Fracture management depends on the patient age, site, severity, and comorbidity. The main goal of the clinician is to achieve and restore the facial appearance and function. Hereby we present a 8-year-old male child with compound mandibular fractures with haematoma floor of mouth, right lower lip and chin laceration and he is managed by miniplate and monocortical screws fixation.
