Treatment Modalities of Mandibular Angle Fractures (pp. 29-38)
Authors: Prathusha Subramanian and Mohammad Nabeel Nazar
Abstract: Mandibular angle fractures are treated with a wide range of treatment modalities from conservative management to wire and plate osteosynthesis. They present with high post-operative complication rates compared to other mandibular fractures and therefore the treatment options are still debatable. The literature on the various treatment options available are reviewed to strike an ideal method of management of these fractures.
Biocompatible materials for osteosynthesis with high success and low complication rates and ideal designs are available for fixation of mandibular fractures.
