İlkay Hüthüt, Çağrı Sade, Kemal Uğurlu, Ayşin Karasoy, Onur Egemen

Objective: Mandible fractures are the second most common fractures of the facial bones following nasal fractures. 40 patients were treated due to mandible fracture in our clinic between 1998-2000.

Study Design: While 85% of the cases were male, 15% were female. Patients were complaining from pain and swelling on their jaws and numbness of the lower lip. The main principles of treatment were early attempt, rigid fixation by minilmidi plates, Maxillomandibular fixation (MMF), circumferential wiring and reconstruction with bone graft. CT images and clinical observations were used for the evaluation of the patients as well as the pre and post operative conventional radiologic images. Cases were followed up between 6 months and 2 years.

Results: The most common fractures of the mandible were at the paramhsial and angulus regions in our patients. Conclusions: Rigid fixation with plate and screw should be the method of the treatment for appropriate patients.

Keywords: Mandible, fracture, fixation, graft.
